    Are you asking as a customer and they are refusing to show you the carrier? run away fast. Very well could be the don't have the coverage anymore, but just a policy summary.

    Contact the AG office and file a complaint if somebody has used them and had a problem.
    Hiding stuff like that is not a good sign.

    Likewise if you're an agent offering to quote, walk away.

    If the mover does interstate moving, they should be registered with the DOT.

    You might have some luck using the DOT website...

    A&I online - Motor Carrier Analysis and Information Resources Online

    Additionally, many states regulate movers so you might also look for resources on your state's website. One of your earlier posts suggested you might be in Florida so here are a couple of resources...

    @FEX Quotes they are not registered with DOT. Local company. But thanks for your thought.

    An idea for a low cost / no cost legal solution would be to reach out to a local law school and see what resources may be available. Many, if not most law schools operate free clinics that offer legal services for those with limited resources.

    Another thought, although not ideal would be to file a claim with your own homeowner's company as they likely provide coverage for personal property in transit.

    I'm going to venture a guess here that they don't actually have insurance. It's a possibility, and based on their behavior it's a strong possibility.

    I looked at the bottom of this cup of tea and see some "smoke and mirrors"... I'd be real careful about getting my underwear in a bundle over this one... :yes:

    You saw the AG answer. If they are hiding this from a customer, they probably don't actually have insurance, just a page of coverage they used to have. You get this sometime where corners are cut when it comes to insurance by movers, builders, plumbers, etc.

    There is absolutely no legitimate reason to cover the carrier information up. If the customer hasn't used them run. If they have and had a problem, contact the attorney general's office and file a complaint. Let the AGs office inquire. See if there are other complaints as well.

    There is absolutely no reason to black that info out. How is a consumer to confirm actual coverage?
