What is it with moving companies that got such a bad name, why so many families have felt pray for movers and why is this industry is so open for scums?
So as a movers and now owners of a moving company i have asked my self this quotation several times, why is the moving industry have so many scums within it? why are deliveries companies don't or why the shipping industry doesn't suffer from the same issues, why is it so common in the moving industry?
so after thinking about it i came up with few reasons, such as:
People don't move often and have no real good concept of the pricing.
People are vulnerable and week in the moving prose's.
It is easy to start a moving company without the proper licencing.
After loading the truck with customer items there is a huge leverage on the customer.
Most people don't take there time and read the small print in the moving contract.
I know i didn't really provided any answers but maybe if you read between the lines you can learn something like: get quotes for your move from more than one company, make sure your movers are properly licences and insured, and read the fine print in the contract you are singing!
