Some individuals are out there to scam and conduct fraudulent activity. Unfortunately, more and more people who choose to enlist the help of moving companies are being caught out by fraudulent movers who end up abusing their powers and taking a great deal of money.
Trust Word of Mouth
Word of mouth is the best form of marketing. If more than one person tells you that a moving company is good, they most likely will be. If not many of your friends or family have used local movers before, you may want to consider getting in touch with an estate agent who will be able to advise on the best moving company in your area that you can trust wholeheartedly to look after your personal belongings.
Refuse Security Deposits
Moving companies that aren’t up to standard may ask for a security deposit. If so, it’s important to question why they would need this if you are going to use them regardless. If something doesn’t feel right, don’t hand your money over. More often than not, companies that ask for a security deposit tend to be professional scammers.
Check Them out Thoroughly
Online searches will provide further information when it comes to a moving company. You’ll soon be able to establish if they have a legitimate website and if there are any customers reviews to be found online. The Internet can be good for some things!
