Find a Carrier tool: Your Guide to Trustworthy Movers

Unfortunately, in the moving industry, many companies operate unethically, deceiving customers with false promises or discounts that are not fulfilled. This can lead to an unpleasant, expensive, and in some cases, even traumatic moving experience.

That is why the USMPO has developed the “Find a Carrier” tool, a free and easy-to-use tool that allows consumers to find reputable and reliable moving companies in their area.

The USMPO’s “Find a Carrier” tool simplifies your search for a trustworthy moving company. Before you even start browsing options, the tool has done the groundwork for you by pre-screening companies based on a set of strict criteria:

  • Verified and Audited: USMPO verifies and audits each company to ensure they meet high standards.
  • Top-Rated Reputation: Only companies with a proven track record of excellent service.
  • Licensed, Bonded, and Insured: Financial security is a must. You can be confident your belongings are protected.
  • Price Transparency: Quoted prices have been analyzed to minimize surprises on moving days.
  • Experienced Movers: USMPO selects companies with at least 5 years of experience in the moving industry.
  • Ethical Conduct: Companies must adhere to the US Moving Protection Organization Code of Ethics.
  • Government-Backed: Verification with the Department of Transportation or local government ensures legitimacy.
