Can you imagine having everything you own stolen from you while you stood by and watched? That's one scenario you can avoid with this advice.
Make Your Move Safer
Do a thorough investigation before you hire movers. Start by checking for complaints about a company using the Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org).
Check the company's references.
If the company seems legitimate, get as much information about it as you can—such as the owner's name or former company names and check with the BBB again.
Get a first-hand referral from someone who has used the movers.
Make sure the movers are licensed and insured.
