Avoid Moving Scams with These Tips
When you’re hiring
Check the License
Make sure that you’re hiring legitimate professional Connecticut movers. Ask to check the license of the moving company you’re hiring. If they do not have a license number readily available, they are not a legitimate moving company. At All My Sons Moving & Storage Connecticut, we proudly display our licenses on our website. You can find our Connecticut moving license at the bottom of this page’s menu. We also have our DOT information listed there.
Get an Honest Estimate
Some moving companies lowball your moving estimate, only to bring a much higher price tag on moving day. While it is true that some prices can change on the big moving day, major price shifts are a problem. Our family movers offer honest estimates for your move. Best yet, they’re no obligation estimates, meaning you can shop around before making a choice.
Do Not Pay with Cash
Paying with a credit card helps keep your moving costs traceable. Additionally, if you have issues with your move, you’ll be able to have evidence of what you have paid. Ask for a written record of your moving costs, such as receipts and contracts. Consider purchasing additional insurance for your move.
Check the online reviews for the Connecticut long distance movers that you’re looking to hire. If your mover doesn’t have any online reviews, that can mean that they’re not as legitimate as they’re saying. Look at Yelp, Google My Business, and moving company review websites. Also, check with friends and family to see if there are any movers they’d recommend.
Check the Moving Company’s Website
Does the moving company have a website? Does the website have content that is updated regularly? If not, the company may not be as legitimate as they’re saying. At All My Sons Moving & Storage Connecticut, we have a website with information that is updated regularly. This includes our moving articles, which are updated often.
Talk to the Company
You can tell a lot about a moving company from a conversation with that company. Are they slick on the phone? Do they only tell you what you want to hear? If the mover sound too good to be true, they probably are. Additionally, if a company is hesitant to give you detailed information, or if they’re speaking in odd ways, they may not be legitimate. Trust your gut when you’re speaking to a potential moving company.
