Description: Hiring a good relocation company for a move is not as easy as it sounds. Finding a reliable moving company is more hectic task than the moving. It requires research work and intelligence to select one best company out of hundreds of thousands companies. One should never select a mover randomly. There are chances of fraud in such case. Even though such things happen rarely, it is important to know about them. To avoid scam you can follow under mentioned guidelines: First of all, find black listed movers from website and keep them aside. Do not think to go with them in any case. Such movers run their family with black money and can never walk on track of honesty. Go online to find 6-7 best companies of your city. For this you may take help of your neighbor or relatives who have relocated in near past. You can also get some idea from newspaper and magazine ranking. The testimonial section on the websites of the Movers and Packers can also be useful. After taking few companies into consideration, you should meet them personally. Ask for the quotes. Make estimation. Do not go with the one, whose estimation is unreasonably low. Such companies can put you in trouble. This is a symbol to doubt a scam. After taking estimation of all companies, go forward with the one whom you find reasonable. Take estimation on paper. Never commit mistake of taking telephonic estimation. In this case, movers can raise the cost afterward. Before taking final estimation ask the moving company to visit your home. Do not move with the company who estimate according to cubic feet. If they are estimating by cubic feet, suspect something is wrong. Here, the Scammers reveal their hidden attitude. Weight is the standard means to estimate the cost of moving. Go with the one who chose themselves to give you estimation by weight. Always proceed with the registered Packers Movers only. Their registration is symbol of purity and there is minimum chance of scam in such case. If any, you have power to claim and get your goods return safely. Relocate with a reputed moving company. It is to be noticed that a reputed and scam-free company is always open to queries. Do not move with the companies that ask for compensation in any other form apart from monetary one. Most of the scam-prone companies ask for alternative compensation mode. Also they run away with the customers’ entire goods. Take the receipt of payment for record. Some of the greedy movers can ask you for double payment. Finally, before selecting a company asks for hidden charges, term and conditions, if any. Open up your five senses to choose the right Packers and Movers company to avoid scam. Brijesh is an eminent analyst and writer in Business and Transportation related topics.
