Moved VT to RI
No responsibility for damages/missing items

Wheaton used subsidiary carriers since they didn't service VT, and they failed to tell us this is how they operate.  2 guys from Wheaton were good & on time; however, they (along with the Wheaton acct rep) failed to tell us we had to inspect everything for damages and missing items, etc. @ time of delivery.  Instead we were t...[full review]

Wheaton and other moving company quotes

Moving with Wheaton Van Lines/Crown Moving and Storage – Indianapolis, IN Most Americans do not understand how moving companies operate and, apparently, do not care. Because of their indifference, consumers pay thousands of extra dollars pursuant to what is, at root, a near fraud. We obtained a number of quotes for a move of ...[full review]

Very dissatisfied with move--much damage

I used Wheaton for a move in 2012 from Texas to Seattle and had a very nice experience, therefore, I chose Wheaton again.  I was extremely disappointed at the lack of professionalism exibited by Wheaton's Claims department and the lack of professionalism of the moving crew chosen by Pacific Movers.  They were sloppy in appear...[full review]

Furniture was taken in new condition, delivered scratched, marred, and two pieces splintered. Some items missing ie, ten baseball caps, oil painting, crockpot, that we know for sure. In the past as military officer and Air line Captain I have moved many, many times both inter and intra state, always with satisfactory results....[full review]

Wheaton's Communication and Timeliness

Expensive move.  Driver had an emergency and my delivery was suspended.  I still do not know when my furniture will be delivered. Very poor communication. I had to call them. No follow up, no apparent commitment to delivering my furniture in a timely fashion.  Extremely disappointing. [full review]

bad moving experience

The salesman from Wheaton/Mathers Bros in Raleigh NC quoted my weight at 5000 lbs. which is what the weight of household goods was on my previous move a yr earlier from Denver to Wake Forest, NC. That move was twice as far as this move and cost me just over 4k. Mike added a $515.00 shuttle fee to the estimate because a large ...[full review]

Lying Dishonest Thieves!

My move started in NJ when I was to expect a crew of 5 people, only to have 2 show up to pack a 2300 sq. home in what should have been 2 days that turned into near 5.  My company paid for this move so I was not allowed to pack or do anything which would have been ok had WHEATON did the right job and not cut corners to be chea...[full review]

Bad customer service

Where to even begin. Movers never showed up day of move- it was like pulling teeth trying to get Michael(corporate) to finally say "unfortunately no one will be there to move you". We were closing on our house next day & had to be out. Scrambled found someone locally to use a uhaul & put our items in storage. Stuff was picked...[full review]

deceitful and useless

We were told that the estimated weight was overstated.  It was understated by more than 10% (which of course we have to pay for). We were told (before loading) that we had a 3 day window for delivery that we had to be present for.  After 6 days in a hotel and 12 days since loading, the delivery is supposed to be in 2 more day...[full review]

They'll steal your stuff!!

Stole my electronics and damaged my property, then denied the claim. As well, they were rude and also strung me along for several months before ultimately denying my claim. I would not use this company, they are extremely unprofessional and unreliable.[full review]

The company rep came to our house to do an estimate. He was very professional. We received the estimate via email a day later (on 1/18) stating to fax the estimate to them that day if we want them to pick up our belongings on 1/26...and if we faxed it to them later the pick up would be on 1/28.  We replied via email that we c...[full review]

Damaged Harley Davidson

When movers arrived they unloaded the truck then got to the bike where they found the bike damaged on the rear fender. I was told they hauled many bikes before and not to worry prior to leaving Indiana. The bike shifted in the move and the hand tie down had gotten under the fender and the bouncing of the trailor made it tear ...[full review]

In my 22yrs in the military this is the worst move I have had. It all started a pick-up when they refused to put our leather couch, chair, and foot stool in crates. It only went down hill from there. Upon delivery it was discovered that several items were missing and a lot of items broken beyond repair. Broke foot board and h...[full review]

I am heart broken

Do not use this company. My family's 150 year old cherry wood dining room table that I had just had refinished to send to my daughter arrived with deep gashes on one leaf and one leg broken all the way through with the driver (or someone with Wheaton) having attempted to repair using wood glue and duct tape.  I had mistakenly...[full review]

damage without compensation

HORRIBLE!!! They were hired by the gov’t to complete my military move. Multiple items damaged and destroyed including a brand new dresser and lost the screws to my desk. Initial settlement for damages gave very minimal compensation including a replacement value, which was half of what my desk was worth. Contacted Clara Barnet...[full review]

Horrible, horrible, horrible! From start to finish the experience with Wheaton was something I wouldn't wish on an enemy. The initial packing was haphazard at best.

Stolen lenses.

Shady. I had a box set aside for items NOT to be packed. Nothing in that box was inventoried because it was NOT to be moved. After they had left I realized they had "packed" my set aside box. Upon receiving all boxes I went particularly looking for my two lenses....not to be found. In retrospect I know realize they were ta...[full review]

Do Not Use Wheaton - they will lie to you to get you to sign a contract!

I recently moved across the country (Washington, DC to California), and spent ample time researching van lines before deciding to go with Wheaton--boy did I make a mistake. I interviewed five companies (Atlas, United, Mayflower, Bekins, and Wheaton) to compare prices and policies, and as it turns out was flat out lied to by m...[full review]

Local agents may be incompetent

Do not deal with Wheaton until you have visited the facilities of their local agents at both ends of the move. Their Boston agent was incompetent. Their Asheville, NC agent failed to connect the water line of my refrigerator properly, resulting in thousands of dollars of mold damage. Besides, they broke my antique furniture.[full review]

Terrible experience, do not trust

Do Not Trust This Company. We only settled with them because it would have cost us *thousands* more to go to court, and that's over and above the money we lost in terms of Wheaton's damage to our valuables. My husband and I don't have additional time for yet more hassles drawn out over months. The amount they offered wa...[full review]
