Cord Moving and Storage celebrates 55 years as part of the BBB and our A+ rating is what gives our clients the confidence and trust that their belongings are in good hands!
We all know that rogue movers can make our jobs as moving professionals difficult—if not sometimes a nightmare. They offer too-good-to-be-true pricing, over-promise service and then rip off consumers. The result is that we lose business because many consumers make bad decisions simply because they don’t know how to make a better one. And if we try to discredit the rogue companies, we are potentially seen as badmouthing the competition just because we can’t compete match their unrealistically low prices. At last, there is a respected third party from outside our industry weighing in on the side of full-service moving companies to expose the scammers that tarnish our industry.
Enter the Better Business Bureau!
Just released—a brand new detailed exposé called “Know Your Mover” with a great subtitle: BBB study reveals scammers price gouge, take belongings hostage and take goods.
