Every year there are thousands of complaints filed against moving companies. The complaints are mostly about loss or damage to property, overcharges, and reports of a situation where movers refused to give back belongings and kept them hosted demanding extra payments. That is the reason why many people opt for a DIY move in an attempt to avoid a rogue moving company. If you decided to pack and move without any professional help, you would still appreciate some professional advice on packing, loading, and moving your belongings. And, if you happen to move in the middle of the holiday season, find a minute to watch this and learn how not to miss all the fun while moving.
Whatever moving option you would choose, look at our 10 warning signs that will help you recognize a fake mover before it is too late.
On moving day, a rental truck arrives rather than a company-owned or marked fleet truck. You should know the difference between the actual mover and a household goods broker. A household goods broker only arranges for transportation and it must not represent itself as a mover. A household goods broker does not own trucks. You should know that a household goods broker usually has no authority to provide you an estimate on behalf of a specific moving company. If a household goods broker provides you an estimate, it can not be binding on the actual mover. You may have to pay the actual charges the mover assesses. A household goods broker is not responsible for loss or damage.
Imagine, the mover claims that you have more stuff than estimated. If this happens, be sure the mover provides a revised estimate that you both sign, listing the additional items or services as well as a price that you both have agreed to, and remember to sign before they begin packing or loading. You should also be provided with a copy of this new estimate.
