Today I read a helpful article about selecting reputable moving companies in Columbia SC. One of the key points of this article was to STOP searching online for that mover! I chuckled and am still chuckling while I write this blog post that you will read ONLINE!
However, I thought the suggestion was brilliant. The folks at www.movingscam.com say that nearly all victims who contacted movingscams.com found their moving company online. I must say, I don’t agree with throwing the baby out with bathwater, but do think you need to take everything you read on the internet with a grain of salt. In today’s world, it doesn’t take much to put up a website that looks official, fabricate some reviews, and answer the phone sounding official.
With that said, pick up the phone and call a few real estate offices in your area. Ask for the top 3 moving companies in Columbia SC that they prefer to work with. I advise trying to find a company that has been at it for more than 10 years. Find out where their office is located at and verify that it is indeed their place of operation.
Movingscams.com recommended having each moving company give you an in home estimate. I never thought about leaving each estimate in the open for the other moving companies to see when they come to your home. Take the time to discuss differences in quotes so you can understand the range of services each moving company intends to provide.
Following some of these simple tips will save you from some challenging pitfalls that have plagued the moving industry.
