Re Video surveys for free – The Mover, January 2017, page 38
The above story from Buzzmove in the UK claims to offer a free video survey tool for customers. However, the website published in the article, to which enquiries were directed, clearly stated that this offer is for a limited period of one month only. The Mover has confirmed with Becky Downing, the company’s CEO, that the statement on the website is wrong and the article in The Mover is correct: the company will provide a basic-level video survey tool to its customers, free, indefinitely. A higher-level tool will be available shortly for which a fee will be charged. The company has now changed the website accordingly. The Mover is sorry for any misunderstanding.
