If you’ve called around for moving quotes, you may have stumbled across some rates that sound too good to be true. Why the discrepancies in how moving companies price services? If you’ve received some low ball moving quotes, you might be dealing with what the industry refers to as “rogue movers”. These are companies that operate without the proper insurance and licensing. Often, they hook customers by offering low rates that seem too good to refuse. Then, once they have goods loaded on the truck, they’ll refuse to release a customer’s belongings until the customer makes an additional cash payment. These movers are unethical, unprofessional, and shouldn’t be trusted. Rogue moving companies are the reason you should make sure you’re working with a legitimate licensed and insured moving company.
