One thing that a lot of people can agree on is that the process of moving sucks. Having to sift through all your belongings and finding a way to make them all fit into a storage container is nearly impossible. That’s why a lot of people hire a moving company to help them through this process. But, there are dishonest moving companies out there that you need to avoid so you can save money.
In this video, you will watch a news broadcast that talks about the issue of moving company scams. The news station uses a fake household that needs moving and watches how a moving company does its process. Throughout the move, the news station finds a lot of ways the company cuts corners and steals money.
One of the most prominent scams that moving companies do is holding your belongings hostage. This is after they load up all your stuff and begin traveling. They sometimes will not give your stuff back until you pay them an extra fee which was not discussed before.
If you are planning on moving, make sure you do adequate research before hiring a moving company. It could save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars.
