   I signed a contract with Ally Moving (Ally Vanlines, 1489 West Palmetto Park Road, Boca Raton, FL 33486, DOT #: 2335276  MC #: 797370). David Parker was the representative. The movers changed the schedule for pick up three times. The movers charged extra money despite we moved less household goods/boxes than that was quote...[full review]

Let's start with the the quote. I firmly believe I was way under quoted (after letting him know the amount of items I had). I ended up paying almost double what was on the quote.    Moving company: Apparently Ally is just a broker, so they decided to send me a moving company by the name of Quality moving services LLC.

They will call you and offer the best price and even they match it with your move with Uhaul or any other option and then they will call you again and again until you agree and will give you discounts like check on phone discount etc and they will send you the contract atleast 4-5 times.

I read another complaint about "Sal" and had a similar experience. Deposit to "lock in" move. Got a call days before the move from "Quality Assurance" to review the inventory. What? Couldn't we have done this closer to when I engaged with you? Bottom line: Sal didn't estimate the load properly. In fact he underbid it. When QA...[full review]

Please don't take all these negative reviews lightly- I don't know how companies like this can legally operate in the United States.  They take your deposit after they completely deceive you on what they are- they then completely disregard you after that.  Every thing you read about these guys is true- complete scam artists. ...[full review]

I was contacted by Sal at Ally who took all of my information and gave me a quote that was within my budget.  In order to "lock in the rate" I had to agree to a deposit, but was told it would not be binding until I reviewed and digitally signed the agreement.  After reviewing the agreement, the items that were listed were no ...[full review]

failure to perform

Contract was entered into on 10/14/2013 for pick up on 10/23/2013. On 10/24/2013 they advised they could not pickup until 10/26/2013 at the earliest. Complete failure to perform per contract, and have refused to refund deposit of 541.31. I would recommend never doing business with this company.[full review]
