When you're planning a move, it's essential to find a reliable and reputable moving company. But how can you tell the difference between a legitimate business and a counterfeit? Many companies will claim to be insured, bonded, and licensed, but what does that really mean? Here, we'll explain the importance of finding a moving company with the right credentials and how to verify them. The first step is to check the company's license. You can do this by calling the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) at 1-800-877-8867. This will tell you if the company is licensed and insured.
It's also important to look for a company that has a warranty and insurance. This will protect you in case of any damages or losses during the move. You can also verify a company's legitimacy by checking their website. Look for an official website owned by a government organization in the United States.
The goVA.gov website is owned by the Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Finally, if you are deaf, hard of hearing, or have trouble speaking, you can call 7-1-1 to access telecommunication relay services.
