Thing's You Should Know Before Hiring Movers in Tampa FL!

Did you know that hiring non-licensed and illegal movers in the state of Florida could land you in hot water? πŸ”₯πŸ”₯


There are so many movers in Tampa FL and it's surrounding areas that are non-licensed, not registered and operating illegally. When they are finally captured by the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Affairs, fines will be in the neighborhood of $5,000 and they will never be able to receive the appropriate licenses to legally open a moving company in the state of Florida.


One of the biggest issues with hiring non-licensed and illegal moving companies is insurance. The 2 main types of insurance every moving company must have to legally move household or business goods in the state of Florida is Workers Compensation Insurance and Cargo Insurance.


Workers Comp Insurance:


If one of their movers ends up hurt while moving your items, any and all of the Workers Comp bill can legally be passed on to you for hiring movers who did not prove that they are operating legally.


Cargo Insurance:


This fully protects your belongings while being moved and transported by the movers. If the company you are hiring does not have Cargo Insurance and some of your items end up damaged or stolen, guess who could be left holding the bag? Always make sure you request your movers Cargo Insurance Certificate up-front, so you can have their Insurance Certificate available if you need to call the insurance company yourself to make a claim!


Mover Mentality provides you with our Insurance Certificates when booking a move with us, so you know for a fact that your items are fully covered while being moved and transported by our moving experts! If you are considering hiring a moving company in Tampa FL and they do not have a US DOT number and a FL IM number within their advertisements or website, this means you will be hiring non-registered and illegal movers. Most moving companies that advertise on platforms like Craigslist, Thumbtack, Yelp and others do not have a website, nor a presence on Google which should always be a red flag 🚩.


**HERE ARE A FEW WAYS TO SPOT NON-LICENSED & ILLEGAL MOVERS**


Rented U-Haul or Penske trucks within their advertisement images (always look at the side of the truck or for the small orange dollies to know it's by U-Haul). Other immediate signs are no uniforms or company shirts worn by movers, no website or Google presence, movers that ask for a deposit, pricing that is different when you call versus the pricing shown in the ad, no license numbers displayed in their advertisements, plus so much more....


There is SO much more you should be aware of before hiring a local moving company, and you can call us today so we can explain it all to you!
