The last thing you need when you’re stressed about moving is to worry about whether your moving company is legit. Unfortunately, fraud is as real in the moving industry as it is everywhere else.
But you can protect yourself and your belongings by checking a company’s USDOT number online before you sign a contract or pay for any moving services.

We’ll take the stress out of your move by showing you how to check your company’s USDOT number—and what to look for when you do.
