As a family-owned and operated company we are here to help make your move easier, not steal from you. Unfortunately, there are moving companies out there that will try and scam you to make a few extra dollars. We want to help you avoid that at all costs. So, here are some red flags to help you avoid the scammers and feel secure during your move.
If you feel like a Kansas City Moving Company is low balling the estimate of your move, go in a different direction. Chances are they are pulling a bait-and-switch tactic. This is where you will receive a low estimate and on the day of the move the movers will tell you that the workload of the move is larger than originally discussed.
Over-the-Phone estimates: don’t do them. There is no way for someone to make an accurate estimate without seeing the inventory of the move. Any company that provides professional packing services will not solely rely on an over-the-phone estimate for a job.
Large deposits: don’t make them. Any Kansas City Moving company trying to pull large sums of money out of your pocket before doing a job is not a reliable source. Thank them for their time, keep your money, and move on.
Don’t be misled by phony companies. Far too often, scammers will take advantage of the individuals who aren’t researching for a move. Call their offices, check their address and legitimacy of the company. Don’t be another statistic.
