Avoid Moving Scams With These 5 TipsDid you know? Increasingly mobile Americans have become susceptible to scams by moving companies. The best way to avoid a scam is to thoroughly research the mover you plan to hire before signing a contract. Here are 5 crucial steps to take prior to booking:

Do your own background check. Start by seeking references from trustworthy sources, such as family, friends or a reputable real estate agent.

Confirm licensing. Inquire about the company’s licensing – the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration provides licenses to interstate movers and has a list of qualified state regulators on its website.

Be aware of complaints. The federal website above and the Better Business Bureau keep records of complaints against movers. You might also try an additional Google search of the company, which will turn up both positive and negative reviews.

Learn about your rights. Movers must adhere to the federal government’s policy of providing booklets explaining rights to clients. For even more information on your rights, explore the American Moving & Storage Association website.

Get more than one estimate. Shop around. Get estimates from at least three different companies to ensure you’re being quoted fairly.
