Hiring a moving company?

You know to check them out with the BBB. You know you should check to see if they have a license. You know they should be a member of a moving association like the NJ Warehouse and Movers Association or the American Moving & Storage Association. You also know you want an in-house estimate of charges, but are you really doing that ??
Call after call to our office would rather we did not come out, they want a price over the phone. By law I should, but you don’t have time to meet the guy/women that will move everything you own and love.
I might mention we are registered with the BBB and tell our rating. You should check that out but it’s a bother and the estimator seems so nice.
You should only call licensed movers, with liability coverage, their own trucks and men, but the guys that posted “moving services” on Craig’s list seem like they can do this.
As consumers we often invite problems because we neglect to do the smallest of background checks. Don’t be one that gets burned.

Faith can move mountains, for everything else there is BD Movers

BTW Craig’s List is an excellent source for all kinds of things, but in NJ they do not post a consumer notice that movers must be licensed here and so most who post under moving services are not legal, licensed, and insured.
