Improving Housing Market Means Higher Demand For Movers
CHARLOTTE, N.C.--"Basically its torn here and completely bent like it's just done," said Naza Bungu as she showed us one of the several things she said was destroyed in her move from Connecticut to Charlotte after the moving truck crashed along the way.
"It's been almost three weeks of torture," she said.What happened to Bungu is all too common for people who are relocating this summer. July is one of the busiest months of year for movers.
"When they don't have the right amount of staff or adequately trained staff. They are going to run into problems like this," said the B.B.B.'s Tom Bartholomy.
The Better Business Bureau said they've been flooded with similar complaints. The B.B.B says the majority come from crosstown movers even though North Carolina has strict moving regulations.
Bungu said she spent an extra thousand dollars for the shipment she maintains
While the licensed professional counselor isn't happy about what it took to get her stuff here, she's still looking forward to her new life in South Charlotte.
The B.B.B. suggests buying additional insurance if your renter's or homeowner's policies don't cover a move. Movers are required to provide insurance but that coverage isn't usually adequate enough.
