San Jose Moving Company In the News

Whenever you hear a news report about a San Jose Moving Company it is always about a consumer getting “ripped off”.  Channel 11 recently aired a report of this type on October 26th 2009 at 11PM.

In this report they interviewed a woman that said she received a quote from a San Jose moving company for $1060.00 to move cross-country.  After getting to the destination they demanded over $6800.00 before they would unload the shipment. As an expert in the field, I know there is no way a legitimate San Jose moving company can move an entire household cross country for $1060.00.

In these reports the station always interviews the same type of people. Consumers that took the lowest bid!

My message:    DO NOT MAKE A DECISION SOLELY ON PRICE!

I personally hear it all the time. People say they are moving with someone because they are “cheaper”.  I google companies all the time only to discover they have many complaints against them.  I have the same resources available to me and yet consumers don’t always take the extra time to do this step.

Check to make sure the San Jose Moving Company has a physical address and web site. You should always deal directly with the company not a referral service.

The following is a list of resources available to you that can help you make the right decision when choosing a mover.
Google (type in the company name, see what pops up)
PUC (check for complaints, license number & years in business*)
BBB (check for complaints)
Yelp
Angieslist 
CMSA – California Moving & Storage Association (Reputable companies are a Member of this organization)

Notes: * Moving Companies that have been shut down by the PUC often re-open under a different name beware of companies that have not been in business very long.
