District of Columbia Moving Regulations

District of Columbia Rules and Regulations

Local moves and intrastate moves are not regulated in the District of Columbia.  The District of Columbia, however, is considered a commercial zone, and local movers do need to be licensed and insured.  One important thing to remember is that you make sure your local mover carries workers compensation insurance and the proper licensing on equipment and vehicles.  Any questions can be directed to:
