Re: HELP: Chicago to Nashville/Franklin, TN

What happened with the first lawsuit??? I am unaware of the dissolving of the business. I looked in our United corporate database and found all of the info for DuPage. I believe they even had a different "Mail To:" address than Century had. Let's say you lose this case Natasha and Mayflower is found...

Re: Wheaton Van Lines...good quote, but didn't come to my ho

Important to note that Ken is referring to our Van Line policies. We cannot speak about how others do it.

We have strict policies that a driver must follow if he wishes to protest an order, and yes, it HAS to be done before anything is loaded.

Re: Wheaton Van Lines...good quote, but didn't come to my ho

I would have to say no. The reason, when an addendum is signed, a new contract is put into effect; therefore increasing the price on the Bill of Lading. Oops, I see you edited my post down to "signing after the shipment is loaded". Then I would say yes. Our policy is to execute a new contract before...

Re: Wheaton Van Lines...good quote, but didn't come to my ho

Actually, I am not familiar with Wheaton's policies, but take this for example. A phone survey is done and a guestimated weight of 3000# is determined. The driver shows up on moving day and realizes there is 5000#, and he will not haul it for the price of 3000#. Depending on Wheaton's policies, the ...

Re: Wheaton Van Lines...good quote, but didn't come to my ho

Her excuse for not doing so was that since I already had a detailed listing, she could make a good guess. With everything that could happen with a move, a "good guess" is not acceptable. If it were me, I would have 3 in home estimates done and then start comparing. Don't let someone give you a "goo...

Re: Moving from NJ to Oregon

KR, I think 2100# with a 65% will put you around $1800. I would feel more comfortable going with 2100# anyway, that way you know for sure your bill will not be more. That isn't much more than the 1300# quote you have. What if your weight is 1600#, how much will the Wheaton bill be then? It is up to ...

Re: Looking For Mover - Phoenix AZ Local Move

Matt, You are much more protected with a local move. You will want to open your phone book and invite 3 or 4 local movers in for a free in-home estimate. (Also checking with realtors, friends and neighbors are a good start) You can also start by reading "How to Find a Reputable Mover" listed on the ...

Re: Moving from NJ to Oregon

One of the reasons she was looking for one of our agents is because we handle all of the relocations for her fortune 500 company. This happens to be a requested job transfer, therefore she does not receive the same benefits as a corporate transfer, just a lump sum. I did suggest McCollisters because...

Re: Q's about move from DC area to Tampa, FL

4. The Allied rep said they "don't weigh their trucks, which is better because if the shipment weighs more than the estimate the driver will be mad". Does this make sense? Aren't they required to weigh the shipment? I suppose if his estimate is low and the quote is binding it doesn't affect me, I'm...

Re: Moving from NJ to Oregon

I was hoping that one of the other moving company reps would jump in here and give you some feedback on that quote. We'll try to pursuade them into giving you more insight on that figure. I am unfamiliar with their pricing minimums. I did run our 2100# minimum and came up with a price of about $180...

Re: Moving from Boston to San Francisco...soon

Nay, If it were me, I would go ahead and ship the items out to SF now. The pricing is at the cheapest it's gonna be for a while and you will be able to get a local crew to deliver it out on the day you prefer. With 5 months of storage, it might not be a bad idea to get a mini storage unit out there ...
