Wyoming Moving Regulations

The Department of Transportation of Wyoming/Motor Vehicle Services regulates household movers.  The movers are not required to publish a tariff, however.  They are required to have a letter of authority if doing a local move (from point A to point B in Wyoming).  Local movers can charge hourly or by weight and distance.  They are required to have their insurance on file for liability and cargo (Forms E & Forms H).

One important thing to remember is that you make sure you local mover carries workers compensation insurance and the proper licensing on equipment and vehicles.

To check and see if a company is licensed and insured, or for complaints, you may contact:
