Choosing the Right International Moving Company Tip #1

International moving is full of challenges at its best. At its worst it can become one of the most stressful events of your life. That is why selecting the right international moving company is so important.

One of the first things you can do in the selection process is to ask your prospective international mover for their FMC (Federal Maritime Commission) license number and go to the FMC website and check to see if they are listed as active (you will find Roadrunner Moving & Storage there).

FMC license holders are checked out by the FMC for their experience in international ocean transportation and for their financial strength.

International movers with FMC licenses also have to be bonded which protects the exporting individual, if the international moving company does not pay certain service providers that are part of the international moving process. You also have a third party to go to if you feel your licensed international mover has not acted responsibly while managing your international move.
