These days, most of us are looking to save money wherever and whenever we can. On the flip side of the coin, more and more people are making money by advertising their wares directly on the web, often at prices lower than comparable corporate services and goods. Sometimes, it's a match made in heaven, and you find a genuine bargain.
More and more though, when it comes to moving companies, the results can be mixed at best. There are plenty of horror stories to be had – deposits paid for moving services that never happened, furniture and belongings lost, damaged or abandoned on the front lawn when the "movers" didn't want to take anything up the stairs, or movers who show up demanding much more money than was quoted over the phone. In a recent Toronto area case, a woman was nearly scammed by a so-called moving company who said they would hire her to clean out a residence.
The scammers get more inventive all the time.
The Scary Truth
The truth is that, other than the general laws that apply to any business and a list of guidelines that was compiled by the federal government and industry stakeholders, there are no specific laws or regulations regarding moving companies. That means that virtually anybody can put up a shingle – or nowadays, an ad on sites like Kijiji and craigslist – to advertise themselves as movers.
