Hiring a Craigslist Mover?
By The Good Greek

Should I Hire a Mover From Craigslist?

Craigslist can be a great resource to find bargains and to avoid paperwork, however there are risks associated with this type of decision. We recommend carefully evaluating the potential hazards of hiring a moving service from Craigslist.

Potential Mover Scams on Craigslist

There are many scams on Craigslist. Even the portal itself warns you about potential scams. Do you really want to risk your money or belongings to save a few dollars? Some scam artists will take your money and never provide a service while others will drive off with your belongings. Here’s an local news story of a Tennessee family that was robbed more that $75,000 worth of their belongings. There are many more examples of this scam on the internet.

No Consumer Protection Policy

Craigslist adds are for free. The portal takes no responsibility for fraud or inaccuracy on part of its advertisers. If something goes wrong, you have little to no recourse.

Who’s On The Other End

Anyone can post of Craigslist. They post anything they want and pretend to be anyone they want. You have no idea who or what you are actually speaking to when using this site.

Research

It can be very difficult to research the movers you find on Craigslist. Advertisers provide little to know company information about who they are so it’s difficult to research them on the web.

Craigslist can be a great place to find inexpensive solutions as well as bargains in general. However, you are taking a big risk when using an advertiser, you know nothing about. You can lose your money and worse; your possessions. Using a local West Palm moving company such as Good Greek Moving that is properly licensed and bonded can provide you with security and comfort during the moving process.
