Hello, and thank you for contacting with your question.

The best thing to do is to check out page for the most important questions to ask your movers. However, most companies do not ask for a deposit when booking the move. This could be a red flag when dealing with interstate movers.

Thank you for visiting with your question. Good luck with your move!
