Moving your home or business is a tremendous undertaking. From the stress of packing up all of your belongings, organizing paperwork and other personal affairs to finalizing arrangements for your new space, the New Jersey moving company you use should be the least of your worries. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.


Every year, there are thousands of people who are taken advantage of when they are tricked into “hiring” unlicensed movers to help them relocate. Commonly using rental trucks, false certifications and paperwork, these criminals swindle unsuspecting homeowners into using their services. Not only are these types of companies inexperienced, unprofessional and untrained, they can also blackmail you.


In many of these types of cases, the “movers” pack up and load your belongings and then hold your items hostage while demanding outrageous prices in exchange for their delivery. Other problems include the “movers” picking through your personal property, stealing valuables and not making retributions for damages and losses. Talk about stress!

Double Check

Be sure and thoroughly research any potential moving companies that you may use whether you’re moving to New Jersey, or anywhere else. You should also call Consumer Affairs at (800) 242-5846 to find out if the company you are looking at is actually licensed and what kinds of complaints have been filed, if any. You’re better off “safe than sorry!”
