Imagine how easy life could be if we were able to get anything we wanted by simply clicking our heels ala Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. However, reality can be quite different as Dorothy found to her detriment when her house came crashing down on the Wicked Witch of the East. Unfortunately, many people have the same feeling of dread when their removal stories turn into veritable nightmares. Let us check out a few of these horror stories.
You want to move to a new house and are looking for a removals company. You run across this really nifty outfit that offers to do the job at a fraction of the cost of the big companies. You get excited and call them up and even give them a deposit. Then you wait for them to show up on the given day. You wait for hours on end. They never show up. When you try to write a negative review on their FB page, you find out that you can’t. Because the page does not exist. Needless to say, your deposit has vanished in thin air with these movers.
Mr. and Mrs Smith were really excited about beginning a new life in a brand new home that they had purchased with their life’s savings. They found a company on an online yellow pages directory and quickly hired them. Mrs. Smith told them to be extra careful with her precious jewellery and silver plates. They were very careful with them. In fact, they were so careful that when the happy couple reached their new home, they realized that the removal van never showed up and their numbers were untraceable. The jewellery and the plate never showed up again too.
Sometimes it so happens that the moving van has been hired and the people ‘seem’ to be good at their job. Once the packing is complete, they head off to the new premises while you are packing your last few things. They dutifully deliver the goods, take their payment and leave. So far so good. But the real nightmare begins when you open the cartons, only to find out that most of your stuff is broken beyond repair. It is possible to fine charges against them for negligence, but your precious family heirlooms are never going to come back again. However, hiring a really well-known outfit with a rock-solid reputation such as Quick Pick Movers can make things a whole lot easier for you.
The van may break down en-route to your new home. You may find your belongings stranded in the middle of nowhere while you go back and forth delivering the stuff all by yourself from the van to your home.
All of the above horror stories can easily be avoided, provided you hire a highly experienced and known outfit for all of your home moving needs.
