Hello, and thank you for visiting TopMoving.ca!
Moving companies in Canada are required to be licensed to transport your belongings. You can verify any potential company you are considering for hire by checking their license numbers with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) or the Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) to make sure they are legitimate.
These organizations require movers to follow certain guidelines and regulations to ensure that they are reputable and professional companies and offer adequate insurance coverage for your belongings. To hire a trustworthy moving company, be sure to not only verify their licensing numbers, but check their profiles on the FMCSA, CAM and Better Business Bureau (BBB) websites.
Additionally, the Office of Consumer Affairs in Canada has compiled the Good Practice Guidelines for Canadian Movers, detailing the proper ethical business practices all moving companies in Canada should abide by. Knowing your rights as a consumer will make you less susceptible to falling victim to a moving scam.
Also, be sure to receive estimates from at least three companies before choosing one for hire. This will ensure that you receive the optimal price for the services you require.
