Opinion on what should consumers worry about when hiring a local moving company

Consumers should be wary of hiring a moving company that does not have proper licensing and insurance. They should also be cautious of companies that give an estimate based on cubic footage rather than the weight of the items being moved, as this can lead to hidden costs. Additionally, consumers should be careful of companies that require large deposits before the move or demand payment in cash. It is also important to thoroughly research the company and read customer reviews before hiring them.
