Looking for a moving company? Check out Moving Scam
Now that you have found three or four moving companies in the greater Seattle area that have passed the muster of the BBB, it is time to double check your homework. Not everyone will report their bad experiences to the BBB, so it is good to look in more than one place.
Go to movingscam.com. The founder of the site, Tim Walker got scammed by rogue movers in 2001 and decided he was going to hold scam movers accountable. Tim is passionate about informing the public of the naughty movers as well as the nice. You can browse the list of comments as well as look a mover up to see if anyone has posted good or bad comments about them. Please do keep in mind, these are people’s raw opinions. And the saying holds true: “opinions are like armpits, everyone has one and most stink.” When using movingscam.com, I would look for patterns. If there are one or two negative complaints, it’s probably nothing. If there are three or more, time to reconsider the mover. If someone took the time to write a positive post, that holds huge weight! People are ten times more likely to share a negative experience than a positive one.
OK, this should give you a good idea if the three to four movers in the Seattle area you picked from the BBB was the right choice. If you found some bad reviews of one of your movers at movingscam.com, I would scrap that mover and go back to the BBB for an alternate choice. Once you have had your movers pass both reviews sources, it is time to move onto the next round.
