Smooth Moves

Whether it's across the country, across town or just across the street, moving is stressful. But one thing it shouldn’t be? A scam. 

According to Nancy 0rvine, president of the Canadian Association of Movers, one of the most prevalent scams starts online. A sophisticated algorithm pushes out several lowball quotes from “different” moving companies, but they’re actually all from the same scammer.

Seeing what appears to be a variety of places with similar rates not only gives you a sense of security (“all these places can’t be a rip-off!”), but also increases the odds you will pick them.

Once the truck is loaded, the driver pressures you into paying a highly inflated rate, then drives of holding your belongings hostage until you pay.
