  • Top Notch is compliant with Department of Transportation registration requirements.
  • The company has a pending insurance cancellation (we're not sure why, but it's unusual).

U.S. Department of Transportation mover database records show Top Notch Movers is properly registered, has a normal safety record, and has all necessary insurance. But Top Notch moving company has a pending insurance cancellation.

A pending insurance cancellation could just mean Top Notch hasn’t re-upped its insurance policy yet. But it's possible Top Notch is getting its insurance revoked for some reason. We can’t tell for sure.
