Narrow your choice
Check the internet and ensure you have been given the correct information. You can check the BBB and other resources like Google + for reviews. There are also websites and message boards that have been created by people who have been scammed by a moving company. Check the internet and make sure the moving company you are considering is not mentioned in any of the reports online. The steps you take now will have a big impact later.
Once you have chosen the Perfect Mix Movers you like best, make sure that you are clear about the moving rate. We have heard stories involving promises of a great low rate for top notch service. However, on moving day the company comes to your door, packs all your valuables and then presents you with a contract for a higher price. In this situation the customer usually chooses to go ahead and pay more.
People who are crooked misrepresent themselves in various industries, not just moving. In this case a shady moving company will know that you have a lot on the line and that your move is time sensitive for you and the other parties involved. Make sure your contact is clear and complete. Reputable companies will put everything on paperwork so that details are crystal clear. This should include complete information regarding the charges.
A final word of advice
A legitimate company will never demand a large cash deposit when booking the move. Most established and reputable movers get paid after they have finished. Do not ever feel pressure to pay upfront. A salesperson who is aggressive and demands an upfront deposit is an indication of a non-professional. The more you plan the easier it will be to choose the right mover. Think ahead if you have the flexibility. Many of the trustworthy long distance moving companies could be booked up if you wait too long so five to seven months in advance is ideal. The main point is not to wait to the last minute. This will make it more stressful and you are more likely to make poor decisions.This advice can help prevent you from being the victim of a long distance moving scam. Since moving involves taking everything you own from one city to another, it’s important to be diligent and choose the right moving company. If you take the right precaution moving can be a very smooth experience
