Falling for Fakes
Sometimes- if not all the time, fake always appear "attractive." The Internet is fantastic but occasionally online information can lead you astray. Get referrals from sites that vet and verify moving companies. Some disreputable movers lure clients by using names of reliable and reputable movers. Don't hire a moving company blindly. Responsible movers will give in-home estimates and explain as to why the prices are the way they are. Some of the other red flags include;
- Movers with generic and unmarked trucks

- Unresponsive or uncertain movers
Being a Total Cheapskate
It doesn’t mean you pay more than what you can afford. We all want to get cheap moving services. However, being too budget-conscious can mess you up. The cheapest estimate might mean the highest price. Higher estimates assure you to get trained, experienced and courteous moving crew. The crew will show up on time, smiles on their faces as they move your furniture safely and efficiently. They are professional movers who act with due diligence.
On the other hand, disreputable movers lure clients with lowball rates and later hit them with unreasonable prices. To some extent, some will not unload your belongings until you pay the added or hidden charges.
Be conversant with the commercial or residential moving costs within your locality. More so, understand you cannot conduct cross-country or interstate moves at low rates. It's a matter of using logic.
Failure to Ask Right Questions
A reputable mover will be responsive to your questions and give straight answers. Ask them about the moving services they offer. Ask the following questions
- Are you licensed and insured?
- Do you charge extra cost for unloading and unpacking tasks?
- How do you select your moving crew?
- Do you skilled driver to drive the moving truck?
- Are you a full-service moving company or you only offer moving labor services?
- What are some of the moving storage facilities do you have?
Hiring a reputable mover is the key step in making your moving process stress free.
You probably have items that need heavy lifting, your coaches need to get covered, and fragile stuff needs extra care. However, does your mover has the right tools to perform the tasks? Do they have packing materials or you need to search them? Ensure the trucks are well-equipped for both local and long-distance moves.
