Red Flags To Watch Out For

In honor of National Moving Month, there are several red flags that you will want to watch out for. Unfortunately, many “companies” out there are just preying on those who do not do their research. Some of the more prominent red flags that consumers need to watch out for include:


– The company has a website but does not have much info in terms of their address, whether they are insured, or the like.

– The mover wants advanced payment on the move.

– There is no quote given to you in writing. These companies sometimes offer verbal quotes and do not live up to the agreement, and overcharge customers.

– The mover will not answer any questions that you ask. They may skirt around the answer and never answer directly.
