​The regulation of public movers and warehousemen is part of the Regulated Business Section of the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs. This section ensures that all warehousemen and movers provide safe, proper and adequate services, while observing the rules and regulations concerning the storage and transportation of your household goods.

Moving family belongings is a time-consuming and important task. Before choosing your mover, check to learn if the mover you have selected is licensed and if they have had complaints lodged against them.

Once you have verified that the mover or warehouseman is licensed, the moving company must do the following:

  1. Schedule an on-site survey of the goods you are planning to move.
  2. Provide a copy of the required written estimate.
  3. Provide a copy of the brochure entitled "Important Notice to Consumers Using Public Movers."
