Don’t Get Scammed When You Move

Movers who promise the moon but fail to deliver have recently been in the news.  Rogue movers typically work like this: Without ever visiting your home or seeing the goods you want moved, they give a low-ball estimate over the phone or Internet. Once your goods are on their truck, they demand more money before they’ll deliver or unload them. They hold your goods hostage and force you to pay more—sometimes much more than you thought you had agreed to—if you want your possessions back.

Your best defense is to recognize a rogue mover before they have your goods. Here are the “red flags” to look out for.  Also, make sure your prized possessions are adequately insured before the big move.  Call EPB&B today (503) 227-1771.
