1. Not Enough Attention Paid to Your Items
Usually, a moving company will send over an estimator to check the items you have to move so they can give you an estimate. With a reputable company, this estimator will take the time to open your cupboards and check to see what your items are and how many of them are there so they can better offer a price. They'll also ask you many questions, such as your intentions with moving food or heavy items. These questions give them a better feel for what you should be paying and how much of a team they should send out to help you. Moving scam estimators don't do this in-depth examination of your stuff. Some of them might even quote you a ballpark figure without even examining a single cabinet. The sad reality is that the initial quote is so low that clients jump on it, only to have their items held hostage for months while they pay through the nose for their own stuff. Texas Moving USA offers a decent estimate, done by our in-house professionals.
