Oldest Moving Company in Boston Provides Tips on Vetting Movers
Online PR News – 24-April-2013 – Boston, MA – Humboldt Storage and Moving has been highly regarded as one of the most reputable moving companies in Boston for the past century. The company has a solid reputation because of the way it has conducted business over the past 100 plus years.
As the oldest moving company in Boston, Humboldt movers have followed all regulations including having the proper licenses to conduct business. It’s important to evaluate any moving company to ensure they are running a proper operation. Humboldt provides these tips for consumers to make sure the company they hire is in fact authorized to move consumers.
DOT Number: Make sure the moving company has a DOT number issued by the Department of Transportation. The representative should be able to provide you with that number and in most cases, it is clearly visible on the moving truck. A consumer can find out by going to http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/
Local Regulations: Ask the representative if there are any local regulations the company needs to abide by and if there is an uneasy feeling, check with local regulators to ensure the company is reputable.
Walk Away: If a consumer finds that the company they are dealing with does not have the proper licenses to operate, it is a wise decision to find another moving company. If any of the crew is injured on the property and that company is not legitimate, a consumer could be liable on a number of levels.
