Easily Prevent Moving Scams

Avoid common moving scams and save money in the process

Hiring a moving company without properly vetting them first can be the cause of all sorts of problems. Thousands of people are taken advantage of every year by fly-by-night moving companies that make big promises but fail to follow through. Some common results of moving scams can be large delays in delivery of your stuff, damaged or stolen property, a misleading estimate that ends up being a bait-and-switch, or even having your things held for ransom.

Here are some things you can do to keep yourself safe.

Check the moving company’s rating with the Better Business Bureau. Arrow Moving and Storage is fully accredited with the BBB and handles all customer service with the utmost seriousness and speed.

Get an in-home estimate. Not all moving companies will send a representative to your home in order to provide you with an estimate. This is the only way to get an accurate idea of how much the move will cost. Arrow Moving will have someone from the company available in your home to answer your questions face-to-face and to break down the estimate and make sure everything is easily understandable for you.

Get complete contracts. Some moving scams can start with an incomplete contract. Make sure that your contract doesn’t include any blank spaces that will be filled after the fact. Movers are not legally allowed to charge more than 110 percent of the quoted price no matter what happens. In the end, make sure you feel comfortable with what you are getting into. Our friendly staff are available at any time to answer any questions you might have and make sure you get the best experience possible.

Not only does Arrow Moving offer full value protection but we are also licensed and bonded as well so you know that your are safe with us.
