Beware of The Movers That Are Con Artists

If you’ve recently bought a new house or will be renting a different apartment, you probably need professional movers to help you on moving day. About 37 million Americans move every year, and a third of these people move between Memorial Day and Labor Day. All movers aren’t created equal. They differ in moving experience, reputation, moving price and in many other variables. The Better Business Bureau received over 8,000 complaints against movers last year alone. That’s a 5% increase compared to the year before that.

Your job is to find movers that will adhere to standards and ethical conduct of the moving industry. Anyone can have a website and claim to be a mover, you need to do a little bit more of research. Make sure they are licensed by the federal government and insured. Verify that they have been in business for close to 10 years at least. Ask friends, neighbors, coworkers, even your realtor if they have heard of this specific moving company. Check online for reviews or forums that discuss moving companies in your area.

Watch out for movers who ask for mandatory tipping. Tipping movers is like tipping in any other industry. You’ll chose if you want to tip and the amount will match the service you were given. Watch out for cheap movers as well. They might be cheap for a reason and you won’t get the value you’re expecting. These types of movers cut corners and can even offer one price as the quote and in the last minute change it to a higher price.
