New Mexico Regulation Commission regulates New Mexico’s Intrastate household goods movers.
New Mexico Rules and Regulations
The New Mexico Regulation Commission regulates household movers. The moving company is in charge of publishing a tariff and the tariff is filed and regulated by the Commission. This tariff outlines all of the services and charges for the movers, and the NMRC holds all movers in the state of New Mexico responsible for following by their published rates, policies and procedures as set forth by the commission.
There is no law whether the mover charges hourly or by weight and distance; it depends on what they have in their tariff. The movers are required to have a PRC # to do local/intrastate moves in New Mexico.
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.
To find out if a company is licensed and regulated, you may contact:NM Public Regulation Commission
