Hiring unlicensed movers puts you at risk.
It might be appealing when comparing the estimate of an unlicensed, uninsured and non-bonded movers to one who has those credentials. Licensed, bonded and insured movers usually charge more than those who haven’t earned the credentials or paid for the insurance protection. Look at it this way: if a mover doesn’t follow the law — or good business practices — in being licensed, insured or bonded, what else are they cutting corners on? If something goes wrong, it’s you who will be paying the price.
