When you’re in the process of moving there’s a lot to get done, and you might think it’s safe to just hire the first moving company you see. But if you don’t take the time to do your research and hire just any moving company, you could become the victim of a moving scam.
Some moving scams involve movers charging way to much, adding a lot of unexpected charges to your bill that weren’t on your estimate, or worst of all, having you pay beforehand and then not showing up at all.
Unfortunately, these kinds of moving scams are far too common. Fortunately, they’re easy to avoid if you do your research and follow a few simple steps before hiring a local moving company.
