Before you hire a moving company, make sure that the mover is properly licensed and insured. All interstate movers are required to register with the Federal government and can be found in the U.S. Local movers, on the other hand, are only regulated by the state. So be sure to check your state requirements to ensure that the local mover is legitimate. In addition to making sure that they are licensed and insured, you should also check their complaint history and online reviews. To do so, you can start by checking their profile.
