Moving Authority has taken on a crusade to make the moving industry more transparent and wants to make sure the public is educating themselves before the moving season arrives. May-August also know as moving season is when the most moves happen in America, with an average of 1.6 million American individuals and families pack up their homes. The Moving Industry is one that is often followed around with a bad reputation, due to moving companies that pop up, sometimes overnight, operating without a license or sometimes a conscience. Since May is just around the corner, it is a common occurrence to see 'pop up' and unlicensed movers flooding the market and then disappearing come August. This means many of them are only looking to make money rather than have a good or upstanding reputation. Moving Authority has changed the way moving companies are reviewed online. Many sites allow companies to get 5 star ratings, even if all the reviews are not made by real consumers, with the ability to actually investigate the business or its practices. Moving Authority has a specialized algorithm for moving companies profiles and is actively and daily doing their homework for the consumers by verifying that all the companies listed are working with up to date licensing and legal paperwork that protects the customers from fraud. Limiting fraud in the moving industry is extremely important as on average 1.6 million Americans move each year so the potential for horror stories is high, and its Moving Authority’s goal to make those cases a thing of the past.

Consumers also have a call to action to use licensed movers. Moving Authority helps to educate consumers so they can make honest and informed choices. Previous to this type of monitoring system on such a national scale the average consumer might not know what to look for to find out if a mover is fraudulent or not. Chances are that if someone is operating a fraudulent company they know exactly what to say to further dupe the customers if they do start to ask questions.

The Moving Calculator feature has been redesigned in anticipation of the 2016 moving season which will make it even easier for the consumers. The up to date features have been streamlined to easily input inventory, distance being moved and other factors up front. This allows customers to get fair and honest quotes from local movers that are in writing which keeps the entire transaction open and honest.

The goal of Moving Authority is to eliminate fraud in the industry and change the way movers are viewed by consumers.

Moving Authority is always welcoming tips from real consumers that will help further eliminate fraud in the industry.
