(KARK) – (6/14/19) We all know moving can be stressful, so you definitely don’t want the added stress of trusting a moving company only to have that company take advantage of you.
Watch for signs of a “Fly By Night” company.
That’s any company that has no address and no information about a mover’s registration or insurance.
A warning sign is if phone calls are answered with a generic “Mover” rather than a company name.
Also, another sign is if the company doesn’t make an on-site inspection, but instead does estimates over the phone.
Always be wary of unusual requests, like a large down payment or a full payment in advance.
It’s also ALWAYS important to get all costs in writing.
