Advice for Consumers

By: Heather @ 7:33 pm

On Monday May 10th, Joe Gagnon, President of Westmount Moving, was interviewed by Tim Parent on the CJAD morning show regarding Industry Canada’s proposal to tighten rules for moving companies due to complaints from consumers ripped off by crooked operators.

Joe gave some advice to anyone choosing a mover to first ensure the mover is accredited with an organization such as the Better Business Bureau or the Canadian Association of Movers.

Another simple way to see if the mover has been around a while is to look in the Yellow Pages. If a mover doesn’t have an address and is operating from a cell phone – that is a good indication that they are a “fly by night” operation!
