Deciding on a moving company can be extremely difficult, especially if you have never done it before. To make this decision a little easier, we have put our years of experience in providing high quality moving services to use by coming up with some questions that you should ask when researching and choosing your moving company:
1. Is the moving company asking you for a cash deposit prior to your move?
2. Does the moving company have a physical local address (and not just a PO Box) on its website?
3. Does the company include licensing information on its site?
4. Is the moving company a member of a certified organization, such as the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA?)
If the answer to any of the above questions is “no,” then you could be dealing with a “rogue mover” or falling prey to a moving scam. As more people are turning to the internet to find moving companies and basing their decision solely on price, moving scams are becoming increasingly prevalent. While we all love a great bargain, it is important to make sure that you are also considering the reputation and track record of the moving company when making your selection. Hiring a moving company that is not licensed and insured could be a decision that you will regret for years to come.
