Local movers in South Dakota are required to be licensed and insured but do not need to file a tariff. Movers were deregulated back in the 1980’s. They are required to obtain their operating authority through the Department of Revenue.
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.
