As the Moving Help® Service Provider is only paid once you provide the Payment Code, it is essential to resolve any issues you may have so that they can receive payment and ensure a positive review.

If the issue is related to damage, then discuss the reimbursement amount with the Moving Help® Service Provider and exchange the Payment Code in return for an agreed upon amount. If the service wasn't to your liking, you hold the payment and the ability to leave a review. Tell the Moving Help® Service Provider what they need to do to make the situation right. Be flexible and realistic with a resolution, but be firm, you are in control.
