THIS MOVING SEASON, DON’T GET TAKEN FOR ARIDE
“Who am I letting into my home? Some guy who lives in a basement, has a criminal record, rents a moving truck to cart off everything you own, said Linda Darr, CEO of Virginia-based American Moving & Storage Association. You don’t want your personal belongings to take a permanent vacation. 60% of complaints received at the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) deal with unlicensed movers. To operate legally, a moving company must display a valid TxDMV or United States Department of Transportation(USDOT) license number on the truck. Can check-out moving companies by going to the TxDMV website and go to Moving Companies to see the ones that are licensed in Texas. Free internet advertising sites can be helpful, according to John Trevino of the Houston Police Departments’s Special Investigation Command.
