4 Red Flags to Watch For When Talking to Denver Mover

When it comes to moving, hiring the right Colorado moving company can help streamline the process. However, just as no two moves are alike, no two moving companies will offer the same services. In fact, some allegedly legitimate companies may be out to scam you out of thousands of dollars. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to avoid these sham movers. Here are some of the most common red-flag signs to watch for when searching for a reputable moving company.

No Insurance

Every moving company needs to have a valid insurance policy in place before ever picking up a single item from your home. Most companies have standard liability coverage to protect you from damages resulting from the moving process. If a member of their crew breaks a window or is injured on the job, their insurance policy will cover the cost of the damages. However, if a company does not have insurance, those costs are yours to bear out-of-pocket. Before you agree to an estimate, ask for proof of insurance. Reputable companies will happily provide you with the necessary documentation, while those out to scam you will likely come up with an excuse.

Negative Reviews

Though negative reviews are not always an indication of a scam, they should serve as a red flag when you’re considering a professional moving team. Check online and see what other people have to say about their experience with the company. If the results are overwhelmingly negative, keep looking. If you see a few negative reviews interspersed with mostly positive results, you’re likely fine to work with the movers. Remember, a few negative reviews mostly reflect on those individuals’ personalities and not the moving company as a whole.

They Ask For Upfront Payment

While it’s normal for professional movers to ask for a down payment to secure their services, no company should ever ask for payment-in-full upfront. IF a moving crew demands this before they ever start loading your belongings, there’s a good chance they’ll skip town before transporting your belongings. Worse, they could load your belongings and never contact you again, leaving you without the things you need to set up your house.

The Estimates are Non-Binding

Things happen during a move that can alter the total charges you’re assessed. To address this, most reputable companies include a not-to-exceed clause on their estimates. This number is the maximum you could be charged for the move to your new home. If a company does not include this clause or only offers a non-binding estimate, they’re likely out to scam you. You have no way of guaranteeing the price of your move, and the result could cost you hundreds of dollars.

Spare yourself the stress of moving and hire experienced professionals at Eden’s Moving Services. Our dedicated crew will take care to safely load and transport each item so you can focus on enjoying your new home. Contact us online or call 1-877-887-8248 to schedule a free moving estimate today.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
