First, I called to get an estimate over the phone and I get one of appx. $1400. I then ask for them to send out an appraiser (because I was warned of moving companies being shady), and he gave me a similar quote of $1350. I accepted their bid because it was $500 cheaper than eveyone else. Then on the day of the move; Friday, my bill was $3750!! (They were billing by the cubic foot, and their measuring system was incorrect, which I didnt find out until we were in Mississippi)Almost 3 times the amount of the estimate! After all of my stuff was loaded on their truck my final options (extremely paraphrased this part) were pay them $3250 to move my stuff or pay them $1400 to unload my stuff and start over. So I had to agree to pay them or I couldnt move!! So I negotiated to $3000 and they promised shipping by the following Tuesday (Monday was a holiday).
My stuff did not show up until the next Friday night at 11:45 pm (CST). All week they were telling me that my stuff would be there the "next day" causing my wife and I to miss work throughout the week, and sleeping on the floor.
Once our stuff did arrive (it was late because their driver was driving without a license and was arrested), I made them let me take measurements. I was billed for 1100 cubic feet, but it was only 552 cu.ft. after it was measured, and I made the crew stand there with me to measure it.
Needless to say I was extremely pissed but couldnt do anything, I had to pay them or I didnt get my stuff, and they could care less. They promised me that their claims department would handle my case the following Tuesday, but it got pushed off for 2 more weeks; only to be told "I had nothing coming to me because I agreed to pay a flat rate for their services"
What a crock of sh*t, I overpaid by $2000 and all they arent going to do anything about it!!!
I need help!!! Sorry this was so long (and this was cut down by 60%), WHAT SHOULD I DO???????????????????
Thank You in advance!
That website I gave you has a network of attorneys all over the country that can assist. I don't think your location will be relevant.
Hope it all works out for you!
It always does my heart good to see that there are so many satisfied customers of companies such as this who have time to lurk on these boards until the time comes for them to speak up in defense of a company that everyone else here knows is a sham...
A good company will do all these things - including the smiles - and NOT CHARGE YOU EXTRA.
It's funny that you question my maturity, but not the maturity of the scammers who post to this site and play make believe, pretending that they're someone that they are not...
If you'd like to register for this message board, my dear kevbrit, I'd be more than happy to discuss my credentials and reasons for being here in private, but I'd rather not waste the time of the other members of this board by doing it here. I wouldn't dare to be so presumptious to speak for Mr. Walker, but I would imagine that my "immature" presence here is much more welcome than the likes of "lookntomyiz"...
