5 Warning Signs to Watch Out For When Hiring a Moving Company

Working with a professional moving company may come with some extra costs, but it will also ensure a smooth and efficient relocation process. Movers will make your relocation faster and keep your valuables safe, leading to a much more cost-efficient and quicker alternative than if you try to do it yourself.

However, you must be very vigilant when choosing a moving company because making the wrong decision can have unfortunate consequences such as wasted costs and lost items.

Here are 5 warning signs you should ALWAYS watch out for when hiring professional movers:

  1. You’re asked for a huge cash deposit. If the movers are asking for a huge deposit before moving your items, chances are that they aren’t professional movers. It could also be a sign of poor service as the company may be trying to rip you off before you realize their poor performance strategy.
  1. The prices seem too cheap. One of the ways a rogue moving company entices clients is through cheap costs. However, once you’ve signed the deal with them and they transport your items to the new home, they’ll inflate the final cost. When you aren’t careful about selecting your movers, you could be shocked to see just how much extra charges and hidden fees can add up. (How Much Do Movers Cost?)
  1. They won’t give you back your items. Oftentimes, an unprofessional moving company will hold your valuables hostage until you pay the unexpected extra charges. They’ll refuse to unload your belongings until you pay out of frustration.
  1. They don’t do a physical inspection before giving you a quote. You can tell if a moving company is rogue because they’ll send you a quote without doing a physical inspection of your things. It’s important to remember that before you receive a quotation, a well detailed inspection must be done. This is the only way a moving company knows the right cost you’ll have to pay.
  1. The references are very vague. If the moving company is unable to give you previous references or reviews of their services, or if they aren’t recommended by family or friends, then you may be dealing with rogue movers.
