A House Mover bond is designed to protect the municipality of Dallas against any loss incurred from a house moving operation. It is required in order to receive permission to perform duties associated with house moving. This bond covers claims against damages caused to the property being moved. If a contractor fails to execute his or her duties as agreed, they are liable to pay restitution to the City of Dallas. Premiums for the bond vary according to the principal, and a screening and credit check is necessary in order to qualify for the bond.
