How to Choose the Correct Removals Company
People may believe that it would never happen to them but being scammed by a removals company is common and can happen to anyone during any move. We at Easy Movers and Storers have been providing removals in Leicester and across the Midlands for many years, making us aware of the companies that exist extorting customer for extra money or simply thieving from them. We have compiled some tips and things to look out for when choosing a removals company.
- Specific questions
If someone is trying to pull a fast con, then they will struggle with the specifics. The best way is to ask any many questions as possible about the move, from the vehicle to the entire moving process and how they plan to proceed. If you sense a hesitation or struggles to answer your questions, then most likely they are not the professional team you need.
- Research the company
One of the first things you should do is research the company and if there have been any previous scams. Possibly search the company name with ‘scam’ in search engines such as Google which would show any previous complaints or problems. Make use of social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter to also search for the company and if anyone has anything to say about a previous experience.
- No official website
Although many companies nowadays promote themselves on Facebook and other social media, a professional, ‘real’ company would have their own official website too. If you do find that a company has no website and only uses social media, then the company is most like a group of untrained movers.
- Too good to be true
As the saying goes, if it’s too good to be true it probably is. Sometimes companies may offer low prices and then claim that you need to pay extra charges as the day approaches because they have too much work and will not be able to complete the move without the extra money. To find another company at such short notice which would also end up costing a lot more so many customers pay up. Request to have an official quote on paper that explains the price, service and minor details and steer clear on companies that only provide a quote over the phone
