Dillingham Self Storage is recommending storage customers who are moving to please vet the moving company before hiring them! We have seen so many fraudulent moving companies recently active on the island. We have heard from many customers that these moving companies refuse to move their things even after they have been paid. It is devastating to hear that this is happening on our island, and especially to our customers. Some victims report losing out on their deposit and packing up all of their items just for no one to show up and move their boxes. Moving is already very stressful, but these fraudulent moving companies make the situation much worse. We encourage people to do their research on all companies. We have heard that this is even happening with some home contracting companies.
Moving Scams on O’ahu
One specific moving scam in the news recently forced customers to pay a high ransom to get their household items returned. JF Moving Services allegedly took household items from customers, then dropped them off at a storage facility. These customers had to track down their items and pay the storage facility fees to get them back. Some clients were moving off island and unfortunately had none of their goods delivered to their mainland destination. We are so disheartened to hear of this happening, which is why we are encouraging our Dillingham Self Storage customers to do their research on the moving companies!
