Companies that provide local and intrastate moving services must meet all the general business, equipment and vehicle licensing requirements as well as maintain state-mandated insurance for both business and workers compensation. The local and intrastate moving regulations for Nevada are provided on this page.
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. Validation for local and intrastate compliance can be viewed by clicking the “Intra Lic” link in the respective company listing.

- Get two or more estimates based upon a physical inventory of your possessions. You are entitled to a written, binding estimate. The charges for the moving service may not exceed the amount in the estimate, unless
you, the customer, request services in addition to those included in the written estimate and agree to pay the additional charges.
- Have the mover explain the various insurance options. You may need to purchase extra insurance to obtain full replacement value of lost or damaged goods.
- Decide whether you or the mover will pack your goods. Make sure your moving contract outlines what services the mover will perform and what work you will do yourself.
- Make sure there are no surprises at your destination that may prevent the quick unloading of your goods. For example, let the mover know ahead of time whether they will be moving items into a home with stairs to climb.
- Discuss when and how payment will be made. Note payment arrangements on the contract.
- When goods are loaded, keep track of them on an inventory sheet. Check items again as they come off the truck. Note any obvious missing or damaged goods before the movers leave.
- If a dispute arises, bring it to the attention of the company’s supervisor, or the NTA.
- If possible, visit the mover’s office beforehand to check equipment and warehouse conditions.
