Their website promises a low $899 all-inclusive price to extract your phone number or email.
They then contact you and explain why the “real price” will be $1,599 (still unrealistically low)
They call 6 moving contractors and sell them your job for the largest possible profit — often as much as $500.
A moving company (or person) who bought your project, and who has not been vetted by the broker, comes to your house for the estimate and gives you a new price of $2,100, explaining that there was a mistake in estimation and this is how much it really costs. They’re betting on you not having time to start searching again, and will instead simply agree to get it done.
Because your new mover will pay a lot of money to the broker and doesn’t really care about the quality, there is a big chance that they will use people without proper training to earn a profit. Very often, the broker doesn’t care about quality. Many of then are in the moving business for profit only. This is how your moving can become a nightmare and your next full-time job. Think about it. $2,100 — $500 = $1,700. In order to get at least some profit, they have to hire the cheapest labor. During the move there is a high chance that your valuables may be broken, items gets lost, crews will not show up on time, and your whole move can take a ridiculously long time and cascade into other issues.
You can call the company and leave a bad review. But by then, some of them will have created a new company with a fresh website, along with 20 fake Yelp! reviews. Nothing new here.
Because we don’t pay to brokers, we can bring our costs down while still using professional movers and quality recyclable moving tools.
During the estimate, we will ask you as many questions as possible (ex: size of your apartment, any special requests, packing, IKEA assembly, TV installation, etc) in order to give you the most accurate quote at the beginning and avoid extra fees. After that, your movers will come to you and if the information provided by you was accurate,
YOU WILL NOT PAY EXTRA.
At any time you can request a link where you can track the status and location of your move, talk to your movers online and even ask them to send you a live picture of work progress.
For every moving project we perform, we do proper recycling and use high-quality reusable pads, blankets, wardrobe boxes, and other reusable moving accessories in order to keep your stuff safe and to minimize our impact on the environment.
Let’s keep our state clean!
