Some of the main problems stemming just from trend No. 5 are:
- Inexperienced ‘day labour’ just showing up for a day’s pay
- Zero training or processes regarding handling your possessions
- Lack of enthusiasm and even angry, pissed-off movers on your special day, which can make things very uncomfortable and even eerie (this is very common)
- Outright theft of your items
- Alcohol and drugs increasing risk and making the process uncomfortable
- Stand-off tactics on moving day to extract more money from you. E.g. Until you pay more, we won’t pull your heavy television off the truck (yes it’s horrifying, and yet it happens)
