Wisconsin Rules and Regulations

Local moves and intrastate moves are not regulated in the state of Wisconsin.  Moving companies do not need to file a tariff in Wisconsin.  Its a good idea to make sure the moving company you are using does issue a bill of lading or contract on the specific services being offered for the transport.  Moving companies are required to follow the statutory provisions covering bill of ladings.

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.
