Vermont Rules and Regulations

Intrastate moving (point A to point B in Vermont) are not regulated in the state of Vermont.  Local movers do not need a license.   The only law that Vermont enforces is if the vehicle is over 75 feet long, you do need to have a special permit.  Also if the distance from the center of the steering axle to the center of the rear most tractor axle is over 75 feet, then a special permit is needed.

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.
