You can simply check the company here, on Bureau’s site https://bhgs.dca.ca.gov/enforcement/lookup.shtml If movers operate between states, they must have a number issued by the Department of Transportation. It is a license that identifies commercial vehicles transporting passengers or hauling cargo in interstate commerce. Checking it is also easy on U.S. Department of Transportation site https://safer.fmcsa.dot.gov/CompanySnapshot.aspx . All you’ve got to do - is just to enter USDOT number or the company name and get all the available information. If you decide to choose a2bmovers, be sure we’re licensed in California Public Utilities Commission and authorised to operate in the state.
