Moving may turn into an unpredictable event so your best defense is to recognize a rogue mover before the move to another state. Our team is ready to answer the question how to protect yourself from scam movers. What measures must be taken to avoid danger when it comes to hiring a moving company. The most popular complaints against movers include loss or damaged property or overcharges.
In the majority of cases fake movers usually give a very tempting low estimate without examination of your home and belongings. They usually demand extra money when your boxes are on their truck before they deliver or unload them. Be careful, good luck and happy moving!
The most vital step in protecting your move is finding a trustworthy mover. Give yourself some time to choose a reliable moving company. Check if the interstate moving company has a license number issued by the United States Department of Transportation. The local moving companies must be licensed by the state. To avoid rogue movers and find the right reputable movers for your move get referrals, read reviews, and call 2-5 companies for information and estimates.
The goal is to start with a verified list of moving companies with a good reputation. So that you’re already working from a baseline of professionals. Get written calculations from at least three movers before you make the decision. It is much safer than a telephone survey or a customer typing inventory into an online form! Ask company representatives to come to look at what is in your home. They should have this option, agree and form a written calculation for you.
Understanding that valuation coverage is not the same as moving insurance is very important. Make a thorough research on valuation coverage. Remember that the valuation coverage doesn’t cover all your belongings during a move. You won’t be able to claim against a moving company for any damages of your boxes if you pack them yourself.
Consider purchasing a moving insurance through a third-party insurance company if you are planning to move valuable items. Check what your homeowner’s policy cover.
