Moving is a long, tiring process. Understandably, you may want to skip loading and unloading a moving truck. This is why many people hire professional movers. These companies are highly useful, but when hiring a moving company, you must beware of moving scams.
Dishonest moving companies are widespread and these companies use a variety of techniques to cheat you out of money. For this reason, it is important to research different movers before signing a contract with a particular company. A background search is one way to beware of moving scams. You can search online for complaints, read ripoff reports and contact the Business Business Bureau.
But even if you don’t find negative information on a mover, you need to keep your guard up. Beware of moving scams that involve movers showing up in a rental truck that doesn’t reflect the name of the company. For example, if you hire Brothers Moving Company, but the movers arrive in a U-Haul truck, do not allow them into your home. These individuals make take advantage of you and steal your belongings. The name on the moving truck should be the same name that appears in the phone book, online and on the contract.
