According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, a sub-department of the Federal Dept. of Transportation, you should make sure any moving company you hire has been assigned a USDOT number, is licensed by FMCSA to engage in interstate transportation of household goods, and has proper insurance. You can find out if a mover is registered with FMCSA by visiting the departments Web site. Other good moving advice from the FMCSA is don't sign any blank paperwork whatsoever! Finally, before moving your household goods, interstate movers are required to provide you with information regarding their dispute settlement program that includes contact information for a neutral, third-party dispute resolution service.
I am the buyer. Closing on the 25th. Seller wants to stay in house for three days *after* closing. How can I *best* limit my liabilities if someone were to get hurt , brak something ? etc... Is there a legal form online I can download/print ?
