Picking a Mover


Be sure you examine that the mover is certified with the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) when you are moving within the state of Nevada. Never ever move with a mover whose license is non-existent, expired, and or suspended.


Make every effort to schedule your move well in advance of moving day. If you have more than a few pieces of furniture to move, it is advisable to call two or more movers for written quotes for moving within Nevada. Yes, it is necessary to evaluate rates/prices, however you might wish to examine the company through their representative to be sure they are qualified to move your individual possessions. The moving company may want to see your belongings to be sure they send out the right sized trucks and personnel to manage your relocation.

Discover potential movers in your area:

Discover prospective movers in your area by getting in touch with the NVMSA within Nevada, personal recommendations, realtors, and the yellow pages. Be particularly careful in selecting movers over the internet. You must make sure that you have a local address for the mover so that you understand that they are who they state they are and that they are a real company in your neighborhood.

Carrier/Mover Liability:

Make sure the mover describes their fundamental liability and relocation protection options, and make certain to ask questions about additional insurance.


Do not choose a mover on cost alone. Licensed moving companies are obligated to have the required insurance by law, to provide qualified workers, and clean and safe moving vans.

If you need storage or a short time prior to relocating to a brand-new residence, your NVMSA member mover can assist you. The Nevada Department of Transportation controls storage rates for short-term storage, less than 90 days, through a maximum rate price controls.

Long Term Storage (more than three months) is uncontrolled and rates can differ. The majority of storage facilities store individual household goods in wooden containers known as vaults. Common market practice is to charge by the vault or by cubic feet monthly.

Some self-storage companies provide storage and require you to load/unload your own storage vaults. This widely provided service sounds inexpensive. However, make sure to check the regular monthly storage rates with those of a traditional storage warehouse. Standard storage facilities rates are usually much more sensible. The belongings are stored in the same manner as self-storage vaults and you can access your personal belongings in the same manner as self-storage.
