Whether you're moving two blocks down the street or 2,000 miles across the country, the task is no easier or less daunting. In a search to uncover the best and worst moving companies in Ohio, we called in investigative reporter Jenna Lee. She looked at consumer reports and complaints from the past year – all in an effort to help you avoid a moving horror story.
Dick Eppstein of the Better Business Bureau in Toledo says crooks and bad guys remain in the moving company world.
Last year, more than 100 complaints were filed against moving companies in Wood and Lucas counties.
"The most common bad experience has been damage," said Eppstein.
The Better Business Bureau received 10,000 complaints nationwide from victims of dishonest movers.
And with 35 million people moving every year, complaints criss-cross the country.
Here are a few reviews from the local area received by the Ohio Public Utilities Commission.
"I filed a claim totaling $3,600 of damaged items."

"I was quoted my move wouldn't exceed $6,000, the price has gone up to $10,800."
"Divers demanded money before they would unload goods, needed it in cash or a money order, then threatened to hold my goods hostage."
""You're going to have to pay us to bring it back or we'll hold the goods hostage - this happens and we've had it happen here," explained Eppstein.
Here's a list of the companies consumers complained about in Wood and Lucas counties last year:
