Moving scam or not? This story comes form King5.com. This man paid for what he thought was a cross-country move from Zephyrhills, Florida to Washington state. However, the furniture never arrived. You can read the story here on king5.com.
If you have read the story, you will have noticed that a simple review of the business credentials on the BBB would have raised a red flag. It is not uncommon for a moving company to have the occasional bad review, but an F rating and a litany of bad reviews should make you think twice.
Not checking the reviews and the status of the movers with organizations like the BBB or Angie’s List, can end up costing a lot of money. When a moving company decides to stash your furniture and hold it for hostage, or just not move it at all and make up some lame excuse, it can be quite expensive. Don’t let that happen to you.
