Companies that provide local moving services must meet all the general business, equipment and vehicle licensing requirements as well as maintain mandated insurance for both business and workers compensation. The District of Columbia does not require licensing to provide local and intrastate moving services.
IAMTrusted and IAMX-Validated movers have their documentation or direct resource links (backing up their listed years in service, association memberships, quality and compliance qualifications) available for your own verification at IAMTrusted.org. There are no separate moving license requirements for local moving in the District of Columbia.
