Oakwood Long Distance Moving Companies
Oakwood boasts of a rich architectural heritage. Great housing is a key value in this area because it is an affluent city. Many houses are set on well-secluded lands surrounded by lots of trees. Oakwood hosts the ‘Beautification Awards’ where awards are given to the most beautiful houses in order to maintain the city’s visual appeal. We are Oakwood’s preferred mover and we would love to make your move a success. We also offer auto transport options.
Most common moving frauds
It is your responsibility as a client to do your due diligence before you hire a mover to have a guarantee on a safe and reliable move. Below are some of the most common moving scams in the US:
- Companies that do not agree to offer in-house estimate surveys; they will possibly give you a guessed estimate that might be too good to be true.
- Movers who require you to pay in cash or down payments of more than 25% of the moving estimate. Most movers allow you to pay on delivery. Where and when possible pay with a credit card so as to show proof in case you need to file for claims. Paying in advance reduces your control in terms of delivery date.
- When a moving representative is not interested in asking questions pertinent to your move. As a client, you should make sure that you show the representative all the items you need to move; be sure to go to the attic, basement or garage where you may have stored some items.
- Some companies that have been reported for doing bad business go around this by getting new business names. Get all the names that your mover uses and the company’s federal license number. Be sure to confirm your company’s physical address and call them – alarm bells should go off if your call is not answered in the company’s name.
- Companies that continually offer bad services. Request for contacts of at least three people they have moved from your area. Contact them and find out their experiences.
- While packing your own goods might save you on packing costs it puts you at the risk of the mover not being liable for damage to your items. Thus, it is sometimes advisable to hire full services of movers but be available to supervise them to ensure your property is not damaged.
- Movers who charge you for services that you had not requested or that were not necessary.
- Some movers hoard your items and demand for a hefty amount beyond what had been agreed upon.
- Movers who do not give you everything in writing. Your mover should give you estimates that have all possible costs, a fully inclusive inventory and a contract that stipulates pickup and delivery dates. Make sure that every item is listed on the inventory as you cannot make a claim for an item that is not listed.
