Long distance movers in Burke, Virginia
If you are preparing for a long distance move to or from Burke, Virginia, you may be concerned about the growing incidence of moving industry fraud. The number of complaints involving interstate moving companies continues to increase as unscrupulous vendors deceive unsuspecting consumers. These “rogue operators may hold your household goods hostage until you agree to pay an exorbitant price, or they may just take your deposit and disappear.
How can you avoid these schemes? FMCSA (the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) suggests being on the lookout for these red flags of moving fraud:
- The mover doesn’t want to do an onsite inspection of your household goods but instead offers a low estimate by phone. Estimates that sound “too good to be true” usually are.
- The mover won’t give you a written estimate or asks you to sign a blank or incomplete agreement.
- The mover says their insurance covers everything.
- The moving company asks for a large deposit in advance or wants you to pay in cash.
- The mover shows up in a rented truck, or the crew doesn’t seem experienced.
These are all signs of a moving scam, and you should avoid them.
Local Burke, Virginia moving companies
Finding the right mover for your local relocation is tricky in different ways than looking for a long distance mover. In Virginia, movers that work exclusively inside the Commonwealth don’t need to register with FMCSA. Still, they do need a permit or certificate from the Department of Motor Vehicles, and they are required to post a bond and maintain adequate insurance.
As a discerning consumer, don’t assume that a mover has met these requirements—it’s better to ask the mover you are considering to show you documentation of their license and insurance. Make sure it includes workers’ compensation coverage.
With a local move, you may be able to get a discount if you are flexible. The mover might be able to schedule a small job at an available time, and you might be able to take advantage of that opportunity if you are not on a specific schedule.
How much does it cost to move in Burke, Virginia?
A medium-sized local move should be completed for under $1,000 in many cases, while a cross country relocation will average over $4,000. The best way to determine the price for any specific job is to get an on-site estimate from several reputable movers.
