INDUSTRY I AM POSTING THIS on he Rip Off report website, because Rip Off report site is legitimate
Consumers can post their complaints and in most cases have the complaint completely resolved. This website also allows the corporations to respond and state their case. RIP OFF is not bias because the owners here have
no monetary gain. I found that Rip off Report has been very fair in handling any complaints, and did not slander people Unfortunately another website targeted toward MOVING tries to mimic the Rip off Report .
Not only is this site BIAS. They are making a fortune by
redirecting innocent customers to their sponsoring moving companies

Movingscam.com its owner, mediators and profile holders are promoting and recommending four International Movers on their web site FOR
REFERAL FEES that they are receiving from these four companies. Movingscam.com its owner, mediators
and profile holders are trashing any other company involved in the International Moving (including all of our known competitors, some of them we know are excellent companies operating for 20 years in this field) These experts repeatedly advise the public about companies not being licensed by the DOT or FMC,  and operate illegally, when in fact, these companies are licensed Falsely slandering and tarnishing peoples good name and reputation Advising horrible facts and fictitious stories for example; a criminal fugitive residing in same apartment as one of our
competitors To summarize this important issue:

It is obvious that a major part of the postings on this
web site are generated by unscrupulous individuals and companies with their own economic interests at heart, trying to steer away potential customers and
direct them for their own benefit. Some individuals may follow the advice, recommendations and this fantastic information In particular one member MUSIC MOM -- Sharon Bayolo One of our moving consultants drew my attention to the lengthy communication and the advice given on this site by one Music Mom whose real name is Sharon Bayolo to a guest. Sharon Bayolo AKA Music mom uses Slanderous unfounded information against individuals, and scare tactics against people who I know are very reputable.
It is amazing how ONE sided her point of view is when it
comes to MOVING companies on their THAT PAY Moving Scam REFERAL FEES.

THE MOST NATORIOUS MOVING COMPANIES are not even mentioned in moving scam I know of several instances that a complaint against a Sponsoring company was posted and then completely removed Although TIM WALKER ( OWNER ) claims that any company can respond to a complaint. Any legitimate response from a company that does not pay or sponsor to moving scam is REMOVED

And to top it all See highlighted the posting directly from moving Scam ADMITTING they get paid to slander people Is not this a beauty?:
In the interest of full disclosure:-
Moving Scam is receiving a referral fee from the four moving companies listed above for every move with them that is booked from this website

Promoting 4 companies for financial gain and trashing
nearly any other knowing International Mover?.
Providing Emailed recommendations? a private shipper
out of appreciation, search the net and found Moving scam and than put all the time to email Recommendation email I don't think so More likely the competing companies involves are spending the time fabricating Recommendation Emails and also trashing their competitors

This is quoted directly from their site :

Posted: Thu Apr 14, 2005 11:26 pm Post subject: Reviews of international movers (June 2004 to present) Moving internationally is a very stressful and expensive experience, and if you don't take precautions up front it can quickly turn into a nightmare. Some people may be able to simply mail boxes to themselves and wait until they're living abroad to buy whatever additional items they need. That is the simplest and safest thing to do. But if that isn't possible for you, it's very important to choose an international moving company that has the proper credentials and has performed well for others in the past.

Some companies that have done a good job for people
posting on MovingScam.com are the following:
Rainier Overseas Movers at www.rainieros.com,
800-422-5440 (ask for Doug or email him - doug at rainieros.com)
Security Storage Company at www.wemove4u.com,
800-345-0673 (ask for Michael or email him - mz at wemove4u.com). Michael is
the "Michael Zlotnik" who wrote the article on International Moving on the
Links page and he also posts here as "Michael"--in fact, he has been an unpaid
volunteer here for longer than almost everyone else on this website.

Sterling International at www.sterlinginternational.com,
302-762-2896 (ask for Phil or email him - phil at sterlinginternational.com)

Stevens International at www.stevensworldwide.com,
260-244-7004 (ask for Michelle or email her - michelle.dillon at
(Please restore @ for "at" in the above addresses before
As with moves within the United States, we suggest that
you get more than one quote, preferably three. However, for international moves two quotes may be enough as long as they are from reputable companies like those just listed. Please also read the article "Planning an International Move" by Michael Zlotnik on the Links page of this website for a general orientation to the issues. On this "sticky" thread we have brought together most of the positive reviews and comments on international movers that have been posted on this website up to now. It will be updated periodically. As with the auto transporters thread, anybody who wishes is welcome to add a comment.

Note that there are probably many other good companies
that don't happen to have had anybody post about them on the message board. Most of the major van lines have international divisions and that is another route you can take: call an agent company that you trust and ask that company to arrange your move. At the bottom of this page there is a good report on a move booked by Advance Moving and Storage, an Atlas agent in Ithaca, NY, that managed the move through Atlas Van Lines. In the interest of full disclosure:- MovingScam is receiving a referral fee from the four moving companies listed above for every move with them that is booked from this website

Movingscam.com Recognized As A Top Consumer Website on MSN.com

AUTHOR: Jim - (U.S.A.)

Is it any wonder scam movers hate the site and threaten to file lawsuits against the company? Looks like they pissed someone else off. In any case, read the article by Fred Minnick entitled 10 Ways To Avoid Moving Scams. In it are references to moverescue, and movingscam, and the work they do to help consumers. I won't post the link here because I don't want anything redacted. However if MSN views movingscam as a website consumers should use to research prior to a move, it would seem on the surface they've vetted the site already.

Courts have already ruled against movers trying to sue movingscam; unfortunately, movingscam has prevailed every time because people have the right to post opinions in accordance with the 1st amendment; the last one spent $100K in legal fees to find this out. And as Ed Mageson of this website will tell you - the solution to those who disagree with what is stated is not the suspension of free speech, but to increase the amount of free speech. Right on Ed!!

Your case is a dead-bang loser.
