I found this article very interesting today. Posted on USA Today, the article discusses how government is cracking down on moving scams. Moving scams, unfortunately do happen. They happen when you book your move with a non-reputable, un-affiliated mover that may not have the propper licenses. One of the many benefits of moving with CRS is that all of our movers are licensed, certified, reputable, national vanlines that we pre-screen. Check out this article, and make sure to give us a call when planning your next move and you won't turn out like the people featured in this article!

Can't Sell Your Home? Consider Renting it Out
Thursday, July 7, 2011
However, the industry has shrunk with driver shortages and some van lines reporting they have up to 30% less resources (drivers and trucks) to support this busy season. Its interesting, with the continued poor stats in the real estate market, that it still seems like many people are finally selling their homes.
Seems like there must be alot of cash sales with quick closings. Last minute calls with very large moves seem to have increased dramatically. Even with "closed out dates" we seem to still be able to service moves with one of our great moving partners even on a short notice.
Lets hope it all continues for the duration of the summer!
