Why good, legitimate movers cost more

Have you ever heard the phrase, “you get what you pay for”? That’s never more true than it is when hiring a legitimate moving company for your household move.

All of us want to get the best deal possible for anything we purchase. That especially holds for more expensive things like moving your home. but there are times when it is vital that you pay a little more, so you get better service, with more safeguards for you and your possessions.

Which would you rather have?

A fly-by-night company that throws your stuff into a truck that looks like it hasn’t seen a repair shop since the 1980s, uses movers who smell like cigarette smoke (or worse!) and have mud on their shoes, and who take off with your stuff, that you may never see again?

Or a legitimate, reputable company that takes care with your belongings, packs them into a clean, good-looking truck, with packing supplies recommended by your moving consultant, and for whom you have legal recourse if things are damaged or lost in transit.?

Check for insurance!

Rogue moving companies operate illegally. They are not registered with the state or federal government. They do not have insurance for your belongings. And they are far more likely to operate some sort of scam, where they might steal your belongings and hold them hostage until you pay an exorbitant amount for their release.

Even if they aren’t running a scam, if anything happens to your possessions, like something getting lost or broken, they don’t have any insurance to pay for it. And you can’t pursue legal action with the state or federal government, because they aren’t registered.

When you pay more for a legitimate moving company, it eliminates these problems. A registered moving company is going to cost more, but you get so much more protection for yourself and your belongings. If something is broken or lost, they have insurance to pay for it. If something goes haywire, there are legal ramifications for the company, so they’re motivated to make sure everything runs as smoothly as you would want it to.
