I started in the moving industry 18 years ago with a small truck and a dream. I have learned and mastered right about the full spectrum of the moving industry from inside out and held major key positions; like a private soldier whom became a general, I worked my way from bottom up working as a helper, truck driver, foreman, onsite estimator, to dispatcher and storage/warehouse manager. I have climbed the ladder of this fascinating industry with my own two bare hands, earning each day, each customer with utmost professionalism, honesty and integrity. I live and breath moving.
I have worked with both large well-established van lines as well as small moving operators. Moving is part of our lives; most people will need to move at least once in their lifetime.
I have seen from close point how heartless and unethical movers can inflict on honest customers. I had customers literally crying and begging to me to come and rescue them after they had been scammed by "Bait and Switch" and "Hostage" techniques by rogue movers. Stories can be featured only in Hollywood movies. These stories are surely real and happen too many times to too many innocent customers.
I will never forget this one story in 2010 of a single mother with a newborn baby girl, whom was completely taken advantage by her mover. The poor new mother failed to do any research on her mover prior to the move and fell right into the "bait and switch" trap. Her mover provided her with a verbal estimate of "$350 all inclusive" for her one bedroom move. On her move day she was overcharged by $2,700 for her one bedroom move. "But why the price went up by $2,700 from my estimate of $350... ?", asked the crying young mother her mover. "Packing materials lady, we used lots of boxes and rolls of tape for packing, now you need to pay us up or we drive away with your stuff!!". Imagine the amount of suffering, aggravation, stress, anxiety, all above the financial toll she needed to cope with on that moment.
As I heard more and more horror stories within the moving industry (some you have seen on the news) of customers daily taken advantage by and getting stung by bad movers - This story of the poor mother and her baby was my eye opener!
I decided from that day on I will run my moving company to the highest level and set an example and beacon to other movers. I came to the conclusion moving should not be a negative experience, on the contrary, it should be a positive and memorable experience, and I will make sure of it on every move - and these are the foundations of why Hauling Moses Moving was founded.
Unfortunately I see the number of dishonest and shady movers on the rise yearly. "Bait and Switch" and "Hostage" terms are few of techniques used by rogue movers.
Running a business is a very complicated operation, let alone running a moving company in 2020. Any owner/operator of a moving company should never take it lightly.
Between lead generation websites that simply sell your information and high number of movers out there, it is very difficult to find an honest, ethical, and trustworthy mover through a Google search.
I am proud to say I have created a large circle of good-hearted, hard working and dedicated employees whom are proudly part of the ever-growing Hauling Moses Moving family. Raising up from the community and bringing it all back for the community.
