495 Movers truck parked on residential street in DC for move.

495 Movers has been recognized by Consumers’ Checkbook as one of the top rated DC movers. This marks a significant achievement for our team as Consumers’ Checkbook is a highly respected resource made for consumers looking for unbiased advice and insights about local businesses.  

What makes Consumers’ Checkbook special?

Unlike other rating platforms, Consumers’ Checkbook was made for consumers by consumers. Meaning, they aren’t funded by the companies they rate. Rather, Consumers’ Checkbook is a membership based resource for consumers who want unbiased information on where to find high-quality service providers near them who are fairly priced. They share advice and information for multiple different industries from auto services to healthcare providers, electricians, movers, and so much more.

How they stand out:

  • Undercover Research: To help provide the most accurate business information, they conduct their research undercover reaching out to businesses as a potential customer. This allows their team to gain first-hand insights into cost, quality of products and service, and customer care. As such, they are able to identify businesses that offer the best quality service for the price you pay. 

  • Unbiased Ratings: Businesses aren’t able to purchase sponsored placements or listings as Consumers’ Checkbook is a nonprofit organization with no advertising opportunities. Rather, they gather ratings from their members and conduct closed surveys, randomly selecting consumers to participate to offer the most unbiased and honest reviews.  

BONUS: They even monitor ratings to make sure companies aren’t rating themselves. 

  • Expert Advice: Taking what they learned from their research, they have a full library of articles offering consumers advice on how to avoid common scams and solve frequent problems. All of which is easily accessible to their members.
