Consumer Report: PriceBreak! Shipping

Answer by alexzehn (Alex Z.)

Since Our SOUR formula is not fit to rate international movers I will only present the results of my findings without rating this company:
  1. I could not locate their record with the USDOT, however I managed to discover that it is registered in Panama, therefore its not an American company.


  2. They don't have a BBB record (which makes sense since this is not an American company).


  3. Other consumer sites have some interesting discussions about this company. For example, MovingScam.com lists both bad and good reviews - I would recommend you to read this thread to get a better idea.


In general, PriceBreak! Shipping is an international broker, and they will basically organize all the aspects of your move and will find moving and shipping companies that will handle each step of the moving process under PriceBreak! supervision. Unlike domestic moving brokers, international moving brokers might actually be very helpful, however you need to make sure that they specialize in moving to the country of your destination.

I would recommend you to get some more quotes from international movers, and collect at least 3 visual estimates before you decide on a mover. You can also try the agents of major van lines, since most of them are licensed to do international moves.

In any case, I would recommend for everyone moving abroad to read this article from Federal Maritime Commission's website: Complaints or Inquiries Involving Individual Shipments of Household Goods or Private Automobiles.



Good luck with your move,
