Costs for Long Distance Moving

However, you need to understand the difference between a broker and a moving company. Although brokering moves is not illegal, it is owned upon for a few reasons. The first is that you will have no clue who’s actually making your move. The second is a liability.

A broker is legally not responsible if something goes wrong with your move. If you have damages, you will need to take it up with the actual moving company who performed your move. It’s always best to find a mover who can handle the entire aspect of your move.
