There are some so-called movers out there that are charging super-low, too-good-to-be-true prices; however, they are oftentimes Inexperienced and not full time movers (may be college kids on break, day laborers, or summer moonlighters). They may not know how to load your items properly to prevent damage or to not crush your boxes.
Some 'movers' are sometimes actually criminals, or vagrants that haven't been background checked, and are trying to hustle a quick dollar! They have no care in the world regarding your things, so if they scratch, ding or even destroy your precious furniture, it's no sweat off of their backs!
These companies don't give you any real instructions on how to properly pack these containers...So if you haven't loaded thousands of furniture items and boxes like we have, you may not know that to successfully load the container, you need many supplies (rope, straps, cables, a ladder, shrink wrap, furniture pads, dollies, tools, cardboard, tape...the list goes on....)! If you don't have all of these items, and you don't have the packing experience, your loading efforts can turn out like this:
Once you finally load the items, the transport truck comes to get the container and your things are off on their long journey to another state, or across the country...The driver may have no care in the world that you have your precious Grandfather Clock, or your Antique Glass Table packed in your container...In fact he has zero idea what is packed in your container since he isn't required to take inventory, or even look at your load once to see if it's packed properly! He may hit hundreds of bumps along his way to dropping off your container...If your load started out okay, it probably looks like this when it arrives and you open the doors:
Depending of how low your bargain basement price was, it could be weeks while they stop in other states to drop off 5 other containers...or they could say it will come in any number of days, but these companies are notorious for delays, and even mix ups! Your container may end up in another driveway while you wait even longer! And then after your wait, you may still be treated to your items looking like this when you open the doors:
