Beware of Rogue Movers

Rogue mover scams begin with an estimate that is significantly less than estimates from other moving companies. Once the household goods have been packed and loaded, the rogue mover will hold your personal items hostage, demanding additional payments, prior to delivery.

Despite efforts to curtail moving related fraud, reports of Rogue Movers are increasing.

Moving company leaves customers without furniture for weeks, additional costs and delivery days

Promising to beat any price, Karen’s moving company appeared to be a good choice when she made the move from Ohio to Texas. The original estimate was $1,700, but the company doubled the price shortly before the move. Feeling up against a wall, Karen agreed to the cost increase only to find herself living in an unfurnished apartment when the company delayed delivery multiple times. The movers were holding Karen’s items in storage while she waited weeks and then had to pay an additional $1,000 to finally get her furniture and personal belongings back.

Local couple had belongings held hostage by moving company until they paid $1,500

Sharon and David had to move four times from hotel to hotel while they waited for their moving company to deliver their belongings. Unfortunately, the moving company was not responsive to phone calls or emails. They were held in limbo for weeks with several attempts to secure a delivery date. Instead of providing a resolution, they were informed by the moving company that they would have to pay an additional $1,500 for final delivery or they wouldn’t get their possessions.

Moving company refuses to unload truck without additional payment

Heather contracted with a moving company over the phone. She felt confident that the salesman she was dealing with was legitimate. On moving day, with a half-loaded truck, the movers told her that their original estimate of $4,000 was looking more like $11,000. She had to be out of the house and felt forced to negotiate, finally agreeing on $7,500 to transport what was already loaded on the truck. As if that wasn’t enough, the movers told her it would cost an additional $3,500 to unload her belongings at destination. The moving company, threatening to drive away with Heather’s things, got their significantly inflated price and Heather incurred additional expenses by having to hire her own UHaul.
