Yep, you have to be careful. Moving companies might the scummiest industry out there. Check out the site movingscam.com. They have a wealth of information. The best is the forums which have pages dedicated to each state. All moving companies in that state are listed with all of their info / how long they have been in business / previous names etc. They are rated by people who have used them. Also, there is a "black list" of places to never use.

Thumbs down Avoid

Avoid Twin Oaks.
Found out later that they were very Over priced & when I video taped the actual movers, a few hid their faces most likely due to outstanding warrents. They broke & damaged much of my belongings then only gave me minimal funds to cover the cost.

Whoever you go with, just make sure they have insurance because if they damage anything, you do not want to be left holding the bill.

Mover's insurance will only give you a small amount per pound. It will not be enough to replace your items. Your homeowner's insurance may cover losses. You should also check for complaints with BBB.

I just used Applegate Movers in Manasquan for my move from NJ to AZ, and they were fantastic. Fair price, my stuff was in good condition, and he was actually at my place waiting for me when I got there! My parents have used them several times, too, for local moves and were very satisfied. DM me if you want their number.

Wade-Odell Movers is one of the top rated NJ moving companies. Do a google search and find some of the moving websites. I checked them out and got solid, top notch reports on them. Very professional, very attentive and a real pleasure to work with.

My move was a NJ/NJ move, about 25 miles or so. Good luck.

I used Simonik Moving and Storage out of Bridgewater for my move to NC. I had my stuff in storage with them for a few months and received everything in good condition.

Do Not Use A. Professional Movers. They were horrible, the price they had us pay was double what was quoted, they took an hour longer than us to get to the same destination(we left at the same time), and they caused significant damage to the walls and ceiling our new home. Three months later they still have not come back to fix it, despite almost daily calls to their offices and empty promises on their part.
