Please post more info pertaining to your quotes from Superior and US-1. For example: DOT#, MC#, address, phone number. We'll be able to further help you then since there are a couple Superior Moving & Storage companies in Florida and the only US-1 I could find in the safersys database was out of New York. If you don't have the info, go ahead and call the company and at the very least they should be able to give you their DOT# and their address should be on the quote.
I generally would not do this on this site but you are in the same area as we are, so you might as well have the benefit of getting a good move at a fair price.

Mr. Walker, if this presents a problem for you please let me know.
I'm not going to remove your post, but please do not do that again. MovingScam.com does not endorse or support any one moving company over another, and advertising your own company is just tacky. Are you planning on putting the proceeds of the clients that hire you from your advertisements here back into this web site? See now that would at least show that you're trying to give something back instead of just take away from this community.
That is a very good point. If I ever book a move from this site, I will donate hmmm, half of my earnings. (kids gotta eat you know)
Obviuosly most people aren't here looking for business, but if it happens to come my way, I definitely will give back!
Superior is licensed and insured for interstate moves, and has never had any problems with revocation. They are also a member of the American Moving and Storage Association - note that the AMSA and I do have differences of opinion on several issues regarding the moving industry, but I would rather use an AMSA member than a non-AMSA member.
My only issue is that they have a different address listed with the FMCSA than they do with the Florida Division of Corporations (there may be a valid reason for this). Also, they have been in business since 1994, but according to the FMCSA, they received their operating authority in 1999. I did notice that they had filed a name change with the Florida Division of Corporations, and that may be why the authority is so recent but that was in 2002. I wouln't walk away from Superior, but I'd be asking them more questions.
Also, make sure you read the article on this web site regarding how to find a reputable mover. You can find that article here: http://www.movingscam.com/news/findmover.shtml
I can just tell you this, if they are on Tim's Blacklist, you WILL be scammed if you use them.
If you don't take our word for it, you WILL be scammed.
If I were you, I would follow the steps on How to Find a Reputable mover on the home page. If you follow the advice, you lessen your chance of being scammed by 1000%.
On paper, Summit is a different company than US Movers. If you were to ask them I'm sure that they will insist that they have no connection to US Movers. They may even claim that they have never heard of them! However, both companies share the same physical address, phone numbers, and personnel!! And somehow, customers who "hire" US Movers commonly report that it is Summit who actually shows up to do the move, and vice versa. What a frickin' joke.
By the way, neither company has the federally required DOT broker authority that is needed to subcontract out jobs like that. Bottom line: RUN from Summit as fast as you can.
To give you an idea of how bad a company has to be to draw a DOT fine, the DOT is so overworked that they only fine 2 or 3 companies per calendar quarter. (There are only a couple of DOT investigators that between them must handle all the moving complaints for the entire country). So they only go after the movers that are confirmed the worst of the worst. There is no "official" number of complaints that will trigger an investigation/fine but my understanding is that the companies that get investigated have all received over 100 complaints from victims reporting the classic scam. There is absolutely no justification for hiring Summit, US Movers, or any of their other aliases or "partners" that exist as paper corporations with no DOT operating authority and no tangible assets.
