Hiring a licensed movers can give you quite some peace of mind because this way you know they carry at least the most basic level of workers compensation and liability coverage for your movers (should they be hurt on your property) and the property (should there be any damage) you are moving out of or into. It is always a good idea to request a certificate of insurance once you have contracted a mover.
