FEDERAL AND STATE LICENSING AND INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS is focused on helping you – the moving consumer- feel more confident and informed as you make your decisions about the moving and relocation service providers that you will use for your next move. We spend a lot of time ensuring that all moving companies that are part of the Network have all necessary Federal and State licensing in place. Additionally, we review the moving company’s insurance documentation to verify compliance with applicable federal and state rules. These licensing and insurance requirements are important levels of protection for you as they are requirements for the transportation of any of your personal possessions whether it is within your current state or across state lines.

As much as we try at to always be on top of the information from our moving companies, it is possible that there can be a change in the status of a moving company’s licensing or insurance, which could put them out of compliance with a state or federal requirement. As a consumer resource to you, we have provided to you below, a current list of state and federal agencies that provide a public record of this licensing and insurance information on behalf of the general public.

Should you have any questions on any of the moving companies featured on, you should feel free to utilize the consumer resource below to obtain further information on your moving company.
