The licensing and compliance requirements for moves that take place within the jurisdiction of a state in the USA differ by state. Many states regulate local and intrastate moving companies but a few states are considered unregulated in that moving companies are not required to be licensed. They must still follow all local and state regulations that apply to all businesses operating in those jurisdictions. States that are considered unregulated are:
Alaska, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Tennessee, Utah, and Vermont.
