Complaints or Compliments on Brandon Transfer, Arnoff, Bohrens, C&C-FL

Postby sheba » Thu Mar 20, 2008 6:32 pm

I am getting quotes from 4 movers for an interstate move from South Florida to Philadelphia (the destination will be a city home). The companies are: Brandon Transfer & Storage Co, C&C Shippig & Moving, Arnoff Moving & STorage, and Bohrens Moving & Storage, Inc. If you have input complaints or compliments--I would appreciate it to help me make my evaluation. Many thanks.

Bohrens is a well known, and respected United Van Lines agency that also has an office in Princeton NJ. Call them for a quote and see what they offer.

C&C Shipping is a Wheaton agent. Arnoff is a North American agent. Brandon Transfer is an Allied agent.

Yes, they have visited and are working on the estimates, which I should have today. Now I am doing the checks through Better Business Bureau and other avenues to check references and complaints.

Without even seeing the estimate, I'm leaning toward Bohren's because of their reputation. The local Allied guy was not on time for the appointment, and then is going to be a day late with the estimate. Not a good first impression.

I also talked with Moovers on the phone since this site recommends them. They provided an estimate based on the weight and other criteria used by one of the other moving companies. Any experience with Moovers, Inc.?

I am also wanting to move two cars and most of these companies are recommmending that I use a car carrier service. Any experience with them?

The estimate is less important as my husband's company is paying for the move. I want to ensure I get the best company from a customer service perspective.

All of the compnaies you have received quotes from should be able to arrange the transport of the cars for you. They can move them on-van or through a carrier that they arrange. The on van option for both vehicles and your HHG will depend on the amount of HHG you are moving. Since it a corp relocation the higher cost of the on van service should not matter. This will guarantee that your goods and cars arrive at the same time. At a minimum you may want to request at least one car go on the truck with your HHG so you will know you have at least one car once your HHG arrive.

sheba,

I agree that Bohren's is a very good company. I've also heard good things about Arnoff, at least the New York State location. I think Moovers would be good as well.

For your cars, an additional suggestion would be to call DeMoise for a quote. They do enclosed shipping and have excellent reviews. In addition, they are located in South Carolina not far from you. Here is a post in which I summarized their reviews (as of 12/06, so there are undoubtedly more now) and their contact information - http://www.movingscam.com/forum/viewtop ... 7641#77641

If you pay a van line agent to move your cars, make sure that one of the cars will actually go on the van with your things for convenience. The van line agent should put it in writing for you. In my opinion (others may disagree) you would have more control over the car move if you arrange it yourself and you would also pay less, if that matters.
