You won’t have to worry about scams ever again with our movers Carroll County MD at your side

There is nothing worse than having to deal with a moving scam while you are dealing with the anxiety and disruption that comes along with a relocation. As a customer, you want to know that your valuables will arrive at your new home in a secure condition when you hire a moving company.

In case you worry about impersonators, here are some things to look out for, and what a reputable moving company in Maryland will never ask of you:

A large down payment is a no-go

Most respectable businesses will only want a 20% or less down payment. There are numerous movers who don’t even want a down payment at all. Instead, you pay when the package arrives. Your belongings will arrive at their final destination safely and on time if the company is held liable for them. A firm that demands a much larger down payment is almost certainly a rip-off. If they don’t show up for the relocation, they’ll just take the down payment and leave you alone.

Cash-only is a bad sign

While it’s true that paying in cash can save you money, be wary if the movers insist on just accepting cash. Using a credit card allows you to challenge charges because there is a record of the transaction. Credit card payments are accepted by legitimate moving companies.

An extremely low rate/price

A substantial down payment is odd, but low-interest rates are also suspicious. Moving is not something that can be done cheaply. The business must pay its employees and cover the costs of car maintenance and gas.. etc. If you’re offered a moving estimate, be sure to compare it to other estimates from moving firms. Last-minute price hikes are common in these types of scams, which prey on your inability to find a replacement.

If they have no logo, they can be scamming you

On moving day, whether your movers show up in an unmarked truck or in a rental, you may want to keep an eye out. The emblem of a moving firm should be displayed prominently on all of their vehicles. When you hire a moving company, you’re paying for a billboard that doubles as a moving truck. Your moving company may not be authentic if they don’t have a logo and phone number on the side of their van.

Too many extremely good reviews

Preliminary research on moving companies is always recommended. Of course, their poor customer service is evident by a large number of negative evaluations. If there are a lot of favorable reviews, it could be a clue that the reviewers are phony. Prior to making a final decision, check out evaluations on trusted moving websites. Checking with the American Moving & Storage Association to determine if your mover is a certified ProMover is one approach to confirm their legitimacy (AMSA). With the ProMover program, you can tell which interstate moving businesses are reliable, professional, and won’t take advantage of you by looking for “rogue movers.”

No on-site estimate

To get a moving estimate, most moving firms prefer to send one of their representatives out to your house. In addition to distance, moving costs are influenced by the weight and volume of your belongings. A good estimator will take a look around your home and come up with a price based on the projected weight and volume of your items. You may have an issue if a moving company refuses to come to your house and provide you with an on-site price. The estimate they give you is highly unlikely to be accurate. If you’re getting ready to move, be sure the movers have the tools they need to get the job done quickly and safely. Allstate Moving will always get a free estimate. So don’t be scammed by impersonators.

Being casual on the phone

Professional businesses will always answer the phone with the name of their business clearly stated. You should be wary if a moving firm answers the phone by saying “hello” or “movers”. Even though the movers are polite and pleasant, you should always maintain a professional demeanor in your contacts.

So to sum it up, here are some more signs that you are dealing with a moving scam:

  • A blank contract or no contract at all
  • A large deposit
  • No estimate
  • An extremely low estimate
  • Mostly bad customer reviews
  • No physical office
  • No website
