Choosing a moving company

National Moving Month

May is National Moving Month, one of the busiest times of the year for people to move homes or even businesses. But choosing the wrong company could cost you money and a lot of headaches.

More than 7,500 complaints were filed against moving companies last year with the Better Business Bureau.

President Moving and Storage LLC has become the focus of a BBB investigation. Since August of 2017, BBB has received 61 complaints against the Texas-based company, 42 of which have never received a response from the business.

The number of complaints filed against President Moving and Storage LLC has placed them as one of the most complained about moving companies in the BBB system nationwide. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Presidential Moving’s status is now listed as “out-of-service.”

Miguel Segura, Regional Director for the BBB, says there are some flags you can look out for when choosing a moving company.

The company has no physical address and/or the trucks don’t have their licensing displayed.

The company isn’t willing to come to your home for an estimate, and the estimates are too high or too low.

The company requires a large upfront payment or cash only. A reputable mover takes credit cards.

He suggest you do your research when shopping around for a moving company. For other tips, watch the clip above.
