Maine Moving Regulations

In the state of Maine, local movers are not regulated and do not need to publish a tariff.  Movers may charge hourly or flat rate the moving quote.

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.
