Can you tell the difference when someone genuinely compliments you or when they are complimenting you to get something out of you? That is a difference between a paid review and an original review. This article will discuss a couple of pointers you can use to identify which reviews are dependable and faked reviews posted for boasting about the moving.
Ordinary customers typically do not have the time to write a long review. I usually just skip over them when reading any business reviews I am looking to buy from because of that very reason. However, the customers who write long reviews, specifically on third-party websites, are usually angry ones. Therefore, if there are a couple of long reviews with one-star ratings, try to stay away from that company. I am not trying to suggest that every long review is shady because some genuinely write long reviews. They might like to express themselves in more words compared to regular folk. However, it is a general rule that a typical review will not be more than 50 characters.
Sharing or Marketing
There is a difference between sharing your experience with a company versus marketing a company. The latter is tough to identify, but you can recognize it using a simple rule. If the review contains information about the company unrelated to the experience, it is probably marketing. Let me give you two examples:
“I had a great experience. The crew showed up on time. They handled the move professionally.”
“The https://www.cbdmovers.com.au/removals/removalists-sydney offers excellent services. It also offers storage units and has competent movers.”
Both reviews are of the same length, yet one seems more about the experience, and the other seems more about the company. If you had to guess which was the real one and which was bought, I think you would be able to do it. It is easy to see that the second one is more about the company than about the experience, which is why you must disregard the second review and focus on the first one.
The difference between sharing and marketing is the key difference between a real review and a made-up one. If you can understand this, it will be easy to view moving companies objectively.
It is easy to put testimonials on your website. It is tough to put testimonials on a third-party website because it is outside of your control. This is why social media is a revolutionary invention because it allows you to communicate with brands and share your experiences instantaneously. Any bad interaction leads to a bad review, which leads to a bad rating. Any good interaction leads to a positive review, which leads to a good rating. The reviewer and the reviewed do not own the platform; instead, it is owned by an impartial third party. There is less motivation to tamper with the reviews because third-party websites do not have anything to gain. Unless, of course, they do, i.e., money to bring the rating up. However, such a case had not been brought to my attention as yet.
Therefore I will recommend going to a reliable website like Google or Yelp. Look at it this way. On my last move, I didn’t look at anything else but the company with the highest number of reviews and a rating of 4.5 or above in Las Vegas. I arrived at Move4LessNevada . Suffices it to say that the decision was a good one for Long Distance Moves
I hope this article helps you find the best mover for you, and I hope you stay vigilant in your daily endeavors. Happy Moving!
