Steps to Avoid Moving Company Scams And Fraud

Visit the physical location of the moving company before you consider using them. Use your instincts to see how professional the company is.

Verify the moving company’s license. All moving companies are required by law to demonstrate their legitimacy on all their documentation.

Verify the license number with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) or the California Moving & Storage Association (CMSA).

Obtain written estimates for a move that consists of three or more rooms. Legitimate movers are very price competitive. Make sure the estimates are based on the same factors.

Illegal movers could charge by the cubic foot. Legal movers charge by the hour and by weight/mileage.

Like this article says, my instincts could really help me see if they are trustworthy company to help me move. I plan on finding a few this week and then going to visit them all this weekend to give this advice a shot.
