Is Zippy Shell properly licensed?

For decades movers In Pennsylvania were regulated by the Public Utility Commission (PUC).

Each company was issued a PUC Number and was required to abide by a universal publicly published tariff that established the rates movers could charge for various services.

Now, some sources claim that the PUC no longer regulates in-state movers, and it appears as though the PUC’s website is no longer functioning. So if you’re moving within Pennsylvania, you’ll want to address these issues with your moving company representative and if possible, contact the state directly.
