Idaho Moving Regulations

Idaho Rules and Regulations

Local movers and intrastate moves are not regulated in the state of Idaho; generally movers just need to have a business license.

If the move is over 26,100lbs it is regulated on a federal level.

Most local movers in the state of Idaho, if the move is under 2-3 hours away from each other, the mover will generally charge on an hourly basis and if the move is over 30-50 miles it usually will kick over to weight and distance, depending on the mover.

One important thing to remember is to make sure your local mover carries workers compensation insurance and the proper licensing on equipment and vehicles.
