What to Look for in Moving Companies:

1. Proper licensing and insurance

Rock-bottom prices may be attractive, but they can come at a cost when the mover doesn't have the proper licensing or insurance. Ask each mover you consider for proof, and if they hesitate, choose another Portland moving company. It's also good to keep in mind that your destination will determine the specific licensing the moving company should have: Any move that involves crossing state lines requires a U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) number.  At Suddath, we're glad to provide complete information on our US DOT and local Motor Carrier (MC) numbers and answer any questions you may have about insurance and licensing. 

2. Reputation

Between the internet and recommendations from family, friends or colleagues, you're likely to be able to create a short list of prospective Portland movers quickly. Because moving is often a stressful experience and involves having movers come into your home, it's important to know that the moving team has a good reputation, and that its members have been background checked and are well-trained. Be sure to check moving company reviews online to find out what the company's customers had to say about their experiences.

3. Certifications

An additional way to ensure that a moving company is qualified is to check for proper certifications to operate legally. Reputable, legitimate moving companies will be more than willing to provide proof of their certifications, which should include licensing by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA) and U.S. Department of Transportation (US DOT), as well as Pro Mover certification from the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA). Also look for Portland moving companies' Better Business Bureau record before you make your final choice.
