The best way to protect yourself from moving scams is to do your homework well. Moving is stressful and arduous, and you should engage in research before choosing the right mover.
Here are some of the things you need to watch out as you hunt for cheap moving services;
The Cursory Glance
A courteous estimator will ask you questions, walk through your home, open cabinets- with your permission, and take note of all of your belongings. He would be eager to know if you will sell-off some of your household goods with the aim of reducing shipment weight. More so, the estimator will reveal all the prices you are likely to part with for your relocation. After that, you will get a written estimate indicating the prices per service – packing, unloading, and unpacking of your items.
The Requested Deposit
Note: A legitimate moving company will never demand a substantial deposit before completing your office moving process. Generally, it is always advisable to pay upon delivery. But if you decide to pay upfront, ensure to use a credit card. Be wary of low-quoted rates. It might seem affordable, but you may end up losing your money and belongings.
Moving companies have labeled trucks with the company’s website, office contact, services offered and any other vital information. Some of the rogue movers will rent you unmarked moving truck, and you might end up losing your furniture to unknown people. You cannot be able to file any case against such companies since you don't have the details.

Every moving and storage company must be licensed and insured with reputable institutions. Don't fall into a trap by trusting unreliable company. Every mover who executes local moves must get registered with the local authorities. For interstate and cross-country movers, they should have a registration number from the Department of Transportation.
Commercial and residential moving involves a lot of packing activities. If you decide to pack and unload your items, your mover will not be held liable for any damages. If you hire a mover to pack them, you reduce the costs involved with buying packing materials. Ask if the company provides enough moving labor for the heavy lifting activities.
Inconsistency in the business name
Rogue movers get around the BBB to avoid getting busted. They change their business name often. Most of them keep changing the kind of the services they offer. Some will pose to have well-equipped trucks, fitted with moving storage units only to find it is a lie. Others keep changing the moving rates and offer different quotes to different clients for the same services.
Furthermore, they change the business name to deviate clients from reading negative reviews.
