Review Guidelines

MovingPros merely provides a platform for Customers to compare, rate and review Business Service Providers.

MovingPros takes its position as New Zealand's leading moving comparison site very seriously. For that reason, we cannot simply remove Customer reviews that Business Service Providers may think are unfair or unwarranted.

MovingPros does not get involved in resolving disputes or take sides. We also do not actively edit, delete or censor reviews. We do however at times edit or delete reviews where we believe our guidelines have been violated. 

Customers

  • It's the Customer's responsibility to ensure they provide honest information in their reviews. Reviews should not reveal personal information about a person that does not relate to the review.
  • You are not to submit false reviews under any circumstance. MovingPros is about sharing genuine honest reviews. It's not an outlet for personal vendettas or competitor bashing. Those caught submitting unscrupulous reviews or feedback will have their account permanently deleted and IP address banned from accessing this site. 
  • Reviews of your own business or employer are not acceptable.
  • You must have been a Customer of the Business Service Provider you are reviewing.
  • You should submit only one review per move/transportation per Business Service Provider
  • You, as the poster of the review, are responsible for the review content. False info may result in review filtration.
  • You agree to completely indemnify MovingPros, its directors and employees against any losses or costs which may arise from your review. You also understand that MovingPros cannot be held responsible for any actions taken against you due to the contents of your review or comment.

Business Service Providers

  • Whether a registered member or not, Business Service Providers can address issues directly by posting a public review response which is encouraged. If you are not a registered member, you can join for free and manage your listing directly. Don't use public comments to launch personal attacks, advertise, or offer an incentive to change a review.
  • If a Business Service Provider finds a review that appears to be not genuine, we will send an email to the reviewer requesting evidence they were a Customer of the Business Service Provider in question, such as a copy of the quote, invoice or receipt. If this cannot be produced, the review will be removed. If it is produced, the review will remain on the basis that legitimate Customers are entitled to express their opinion even though the Business Service Provider may not agree with it. 
  • Business Service Providers need to understand that MovingPros is a means for Customers to compare and review them. If a Business Service Provider tends to get a lot of negative reviews then they need to seriously look at how well they are meeting Customer expectations. The MovingPros website is not the cause of their problem. They are.
  • The more reviews left for Business Service Providers on the site, the less the likelihood of one or more individuals skewing the feedback system. We encourage everyone visiting the site to review any Business Service Provider they have used. Every review posted improves the usefulness of MovingPros to all users. We also encourage all Business Service Providers to ask their satisfied Customers to review them on MovingPros. 
  • If the review is defamatory, completely irrelevant to the service provided or does not reflect the terms of a judgment or arbitral decision obtained by the parties, we are likely to exercise our editorial discretion to remove it. If the review you are concerned about falls into this category, let us know.
  • Crowd out any negative reviews with more positive ones. MovingPros always displays ratings in order of date with the most recent at the top. Visitors to the site pay most attention to recent reviews and your overall star rating when making their hiring decision. The more positive ratings you have, the better your overall rating and the less relevant the odd poor review becomes. We encourage all registered Business Service Providers to use the Request Reviews function from their account to quickly and easily invite Customers to review them.
  • MovingPros simply ignores all threats of defamation lawsuits lodged against it. We cannot be held responsible for what Customers state in their reviews. We will however under court's instruction remove reviews or comments and also supply any other details required.
