The Only Cure for Moving Fraud

It offered great pay to people willing to work very hard, so I jumped at the opportunity because I had school loans to pay off.

New York, NY (Vocus) August 23, 2010

Today Michael Hill announced the official launch of movingguardian.org as a comprehensive public service website dedicated to helping people who are relocating their homes or businesses steer clear of rampant nationwide moving company malpractice.

Hill revealed that his first job out of college was with a moving company. “It offered great pay to people willing to work very hard, so I jumped at the opportunity because I had school loans to pay off.”

The job was a distressing eye-opener. Hill quickly learned that for every legitimate, reputable mover there are many scammers who often drive auctioned-off vans emblazoned with the names of highly regarded movers still on them. He was appalled – and a crusader was born.

The Moving Guardian website offers a helpful directory that features only top-rated (A and above) moving companies along with links to the specific Better Business Bureau that recognizes each of them as a reputable moving company. But having a BBB rating is not Hills sole criterion. Every company listed in the directory must also meet or exceed Moving Guardian’s own strict guidelines and requirements before Hill will allow them to post an ad or appear in it.

Another prominent feature at the site is a moving review section that allows visitors to leave feedback about their relocation experiences and give credit where credit is due so that reputable moving companies can be identified and congratulated – and garner additional business – while shady operators are served their just desserts.

Hill added, “We also offer a free, comprehensive moving guide and an online moving calculator to make moving as easy and stress-free as is humanly possible for visitors to our site. And all of the information and tools on the Moving Guardian website are offered as a public service.”

The website is a cornucopia of goodies, a one-stop shop offering visitors every conceivable product to make their next move both successful and economical, including high-visibility labels (to prevent property loss or oversight on the part of shippers) and Simple Language moving company contracts (to make sure the carrier’s and the customer’s responsibilities are easily understood and carefully considered before the customer signs on the dotted line).

Michael Hill is a former moving company “hired hand” whose dedication to blowing the whistle on crooked moving company operators knows no bounds.
