In our last article, MovingScam.com Tour, Part 1, we walked through the main menu of MovingScam.com and gave a basic overview of how to find information that isn’t directly view-able using the sub-menus. In this article, we’ll cover the basics of the Endorsed Moving Company list as well as the Super List.
In the interest of self-disclosure, MovingScam.com does make money from the moving companies that appear in the Endorsed Moving Companies list, hence the name “Endorsed”. That being said, we will not and do not just post any company willing to throw money at us and we are not making a large sum of money, only what we need to keep MovingScam.com up and running for the benefit of our visitors. You can read more about endorsed moving company requirements in our article “What Makes an Endorsed Mover Endorsed?” Suffice it to say, that these are all companies who have proven themselves over time and have done a good job in giving their customers good service at a fair price.
The Endorsed Moving Company List
On the left hand side of the site, you’ll find our list of endorsed moving companies. These have been split up into several categories. Not everyone is looking for a full-service, or domestic moving company. You’ll notice that each bar represents a category within the list. Clicking on any of these categories opens up the page for that particular category. Looking for an international mover? Click on the tab to reveal our list. In addition to moving companies, we’ve asked several moving services to be a part of our list. These include box re-sellers as well as claims assistance and parking permits for your mover. If you’re looking to do it yourself, our “You Load/We Drive” section highlights two separate container systems.
While we feel strongly that the endorsed movers are your safest decision, especially if you’re in a hurry, there are many more good companies out there, than are featured on this list. These you’ll find in the “Super List” section of the site.
The Super List
The moving company super list has been put together over the years, primarily by “Diane”, a volunteer who put many years of her own time in at MovingScam.com. Thanks to her efforts, we have a list, by state of moving companies with their associated reviews which have been compiled over the years. While many of these reviews aren’t as recent as we’d like, generally speaking, company’s reputations won’t diminish over time. That is, if a company was good several years ago, they’re probably still good today. That being said, we still recommend that you take the time to do your research if you are planning on using one of these moving companies. There is always the possibility that the company listed has been sold and is under new ownership. If you have any questions about a specific company, you can always use the message boards to ask one of the volunteers.
We’ll follow up next time with Part 3, and talk a little about our message boards.
