NBC4 Responds: Hiring Movers

Hiring movers? Here are the basics you should know before signing a contract. 

  • Research moving companies online
  • Ask friends for referrals
  • Ask the company for their DOT number. That number can be used to search the company's complaint history and road safety records on the department of transportation website
  • Get a written in-person binding estimate before you hire the mover
  • Ask how damage claims are processed and paid. This could help you decide if you want to pay for additional damage insurance coverage. 
  • Make sure you review the contract before you sign it
  • If you don't understand something, don't sign the contract
