MoveRescue

We thought this would be a great repost since moving season is now upon us!

MoveRescue was formed in November 2003 to provide assistance to consumers who have fallen victim to disreputable moving companies. Beyond its knowledgeable staff and attorneys, MoveRescue manages a nationwide network of transportation attorneys who are committed to assisting victims of rogues.

MoveRescue is endorsed by United Van Lines, LLC and Mayflower Transit, LLC. As leaders in the transportation industry, United Van Lines and Mayflower Transit have pledged their support to help customers when rogues violate the federal consumer protection regulations.

Background on Mover Fraud
Mover fraud is a statistically minor occurrence. A recent government report stated that only 3,000 of the approximately 1.6 million professional interstate moves each year result in complaints to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

Consumers have the most risk of becoming victims of fraud when they use only the Internet to find their mover and then decide which mover to hire based solely on cost. Unscrupulous moving companies and moving brokers are often Internet-based because this makes it more difficult to track them down when a problem arises. Consumers should investigate movers’ service records and reputations.

Check Them Out
Once you’ve compiled a list of potential moving companies, you can use the Internet as a tool for researching the companies on your list. http://www.moverescue.com/check_out.htm

Federal Consumer Protection Regulations
The FMCSA publishes and enforces the federal consumer protection regulations that govern consumer rights and industry procedure for all interstate household goods moves. Please call 800-832-1773 and a MoveRescue representative will help you to understand how these regulations apply to your move. You may view the consumer protection regulations online at: www.fmcsa.dot.gov

Introducing Our Newest Division, Secure Record Storage

Secure, reliable record storage management is an essential service for every business of every size. Storing important documents in a basement, public storage unit or cluttered office space is about as secure as storing your life savings under your mattress. And trusting your records to a company you can’t trust to accurately and appropriately manage that critical information can be even worse. Nowhere are your business’s records more secure than in the hands of Secure Record Storage.

Paper documents and hardcopy records can quickly pile up and overload any office or practice. Storing them involves taking up valuable office space or renting public storage. Keeping them protected, organized, available and easy to find is the greatest challenge of all.

To Learn More about Secure Record Storage, make plans to visit our table at the GNFCC Eggs & Enterprise Breakfast on April 24, 2012, from 7:30 – 9:00 AM. We’ll enter anyone who provides us with the name of their company’s Document Manager in a drawing for $200! Register to Attend Here!

Preparing for the Peak Moving Season

We recommend that anyone planning on a summertime move make their plans now and contact a moving company in the next month since it was necessary to turn away customers last summer. Doing so will add greatly to your sanity during this “Peak” relocation season; a season that we hope will be considerably busier than the last few years.

Be very sure to book your relocation with a reputable company that will actually have the equipment and manpower to perform the services promised on the dates promised. A.C. White has been providing this level of quality service for 86 years.

In addition, moving companies increase their prices during the dates around Memorial Day, the 4th of July and Labor Day. To encourage early booking, United and Mayflower are offering a special during March and April. They will guarantee today’s rates for any date during May, June, July & August when an Order for Service is signed within 30 days of receiving the estimate.

A Job Well Done

We want to share a letter that we just received from a Facility Manager:

“Last weekend we welcomed our staff to their new work areas and all were extremely pleased to find that their belongings were neatly arranged and ready for them to unpack.

The crew did a remarkable job; were very easy to work with; professional, hard-working, courteous and helpful; they kept the project moving and efficient; but most importantly with great accuracy.

Please accept my sincere thanks for an outstanding performance of the entire team.”

Sincerely
JB
Facility Manager, East US
