I have just read that a company purporting to be a legitimate removal firm has been targeting those moving abroad, stealing furniture and personal belongings and selling them on. There was a name mentioned but as the matter is currently under investigation I don't want to jump the gun in case it turns out to be unfounded.
It seems to have been ongoing with numerous people's lives literally devastated. Their excitement of moving and setting up a new home simply became a nightmare when they discovered all they had had been stolen.
Moving house/country is expensive and I think the vast majority of us would happily opt for the lowest quote to help save a few pennies but how to avoid these new thieves? Recommendations from several people who've all used one particular service would be great. Long-established, well known firms are presumably reputable but perhaps more pricey?
How would you safeguard your prized possessions?
