I have moved dozens times in my career and these con artists are by far the WORST in the business. Do NOT believe when they tell you that the price they quoted is the final price. They will lie to you when you book the appointment and tell you that they have professional movers who will wrap and protect your furniture, disassemble and reassemble you furniture at your destination, etc. In reality, they send a couple of folks they probably hired off Craigslist with little or no experience. You will be informed that you will be charged by the hour after a certain time -- and believe me, they WILL go over the time allotted, so be prepared for $100 per hour. Wrapping your furniture is extra. They will wrap it with what amounts to sticky saran wrap and throw dirty blankets on top of that and tie it will some type of twine. I felt like I should have been moving with the Clampetts! A LOCAL move no more than 47 miles one way cost me $800 -- and I have a 1 BR apt., which I packed myself. These people are liars, con artists and cheats. Run, don t walk, far and fast to another more reputable establishment. I am still trying to get them to reimburse me for a broken bed (forget about the broken lamp and scratched chair, I just want to not sleep on a mattress on the floor). I have gone to their offices, i have threatened litigation, you name it. Hate to waste time filing a suit, but may have to. Already filed a complaint with the BBB. I could go on, but feel free to email me for the whole story. Bottom line is just don t use these morons if you value your money, your time, and your furniture. I have filed a formal complaint with the local consumer protection agency, which is currently documenting everything I've told them, and with the BBB. I know that it's time consuming and will ultimately not replace all that I have lost, but if it saves anyone else from such a disasterous and expensive move, it will be worth it. My hope is that the state will revoke their license and close them down for good!
