May is National Moving Month and the Better Business Bureau is warning people about scammers waiting to take advantage of customers on the move.
Last year the BBB received more than 9,300 complaints against movers across the U.S. and more than 1.7-million inquiries for moving-related businesses.
Complaints included damaged or missing items, major price increases over the original estimates, late deliveries and even goods being held over disputed payments.
To make sure you don't get scammed, the BBB says to check with them first before you hire a mover.
The company has hundreds of business reviews to help you find a trustworthy company to safely move your belongings. For tips on how to protect your move, click here.
