Those in Florida who wish to operate as an intrastate mover of household goods or as a moving broker must register with Florida's Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
Registration includes obtaining a $25,000 Household Moving Services Performance Bond or provide the state with a $25,000 certificate of deposit. The Department must be listed as the sole beneficiary, and the security may only be used for the payment of claims.
The security protects any consumer who is injured as a result of the Principal’s fraud, misrepresentation, breach of contract, misfeasance, malfeasance, financial failure, or any violation of Florida Statutes.
Applicants are required to:
The premium that you pay for a Florida Household Moving Services Performance Bond is dependent on credit.
Movers must provide a contract and estimate in writing to a prospective shipper prior to providing services.
Hours: 8:00-5:00 CST, Monday through Friday
