Moving scams are alive and well in
Toronto and the GTA, according to a report by Global News. What with the GTA's many educational
institutions, the hot real estate and condo markets, there are a lot
of moving going on every month of the year. Nowadays, that means a lot of shady
moving companies too. It seems like anyone at all can set up a free ad online and claim to be a "moving company" - with practices that may come with a nasty surprise.
In a published report, a man told the
story of how he was quoted an hourly rate over the phone. Once all
his possessions were in the van, the movers told him that the rate
he'd been quoted was only for one man, and that it was doubled since
there were two of them. They charged insurance, taxes, and other fees
on top of that. Put on the spot, the man felt like he had no choice but to comply.
It's not uncommon. A move can entail
many costs, and it's only natural that people are trying to save
money. The problem is that something that sounds too good to be true,
usually is. And a hugely discounted rate at anything most likely means that either corners are being cut, or the true rate is being hidden.
Save Money - DIY Moving
The best way to move safely and cut
your costs is by doing it yourself. We can help by solving the issue
of moving supplies, including reusable plastic moving box rentals that make it easy. Renting moving boxes gives you an advantage both
before and after your move.
You won't have to prowl grocery
stores looking for cardboard boxes;
Later, you won't have to cut up
and bundle all those boxes for the recycling bin;
Even though they can be recycled,
it's better not to contribute to extra waste – reusable bins are
the green solution.
Along with saving money, you'll have
full control over the moving process, and you'll know exactly what is
going where at any time – no wondering and worrying about how
movers are treating your valued belongings.
