ASAP Van Lines Changes Their Name To Chicago Moving Systems

Postby DavidKochi » Wed Nov 12, 2008 5:01 pm

ASAP Van Lines has changed their name to Chicago Moving Systems to avoid their terrible reputation.

Please take note of this and spread the word.


To prove my point...

At the link below please search by "Corporate" and the "file number".

http://www.ilsos.gov/corporatellc/

The file number for ASAP is 63722332
The file number for Chicago Moving Systems is 65637197

You will see the companies are both registered to the same owner, Dror Borohov, a known scammer in the industry. Also you will see that the incorporation for ASAP Van Lines has been dissolved.



You will also see Chicago Moving Systems' domain is registered to ASAP Van Lines

Compare the phone numbers on the websites....

http://www.asapvanlines.com/
http://www.chicagomovingsystems.com/

Finally I would like to quote some false advertising on the Chicago Moving Systems' website...

"100% Total Satisfaction Guarantee


This is the guarantee that Chicago Moving Systems has lived by for over 15 years. Whether you are moving across the street or across the country, let our experienced staff of dedicated "Furniture Handlers" hake your relocation a "Moving Experience!"

This company hasn't been around even 5 years let alone 15...

I dont know about this Dori guy from Chicago Moving Systems, he is linked to all the following companies


www.asapvanlines.com Which is now closed
www.chicagomovingsystems.com which is brand newly opened
www.asapvanlinesoftexas.com which is now AMPM Moving
www.reliablevanlines.com which is a inactive broker and a lead generation website?

This seems like some pretty shady stuff to me. I would avoid this company at all costs, keep in mind they are attempting to gain business using 123movers.com

Ever use Google maps???? type in those addresses in google maps. Click on the satellite view and zoom in all the way. You can also try the street view.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Upon further inspection...the Church street address is obviously an apartment building. Let's try the Lawler street address...
Oh! EVEN BETTER! A HOUSE!!!!!!

So.....Are they operating out of an apartment??? Or a house???? take your pick!

again... :nono: :nono: :nono: :nono: :nono: :nono: Dumbasses....


Something tells me though that they actually operate from here.

Thank you David for posting this information. I also check the Consumerist and they have noted the name change. ASAP will admit nothing, deny everything and then make counter accusations as a method of wearing you down.

Someone should tell them the watering the lawn is not part of the typical moving service.

Looks to me that CMS is taking jobs from Baker Moving. I wonder if that's the same Baker Moving broker from CA????

This made me chuckle a little. At this point they're not even attempting to cover up that they're the same company.

Yep, classic reason to handle moving yourself and don't let overzealous and very-well-meaning family members say that they'll take care of everything.

Had a big move from Chicago to California and my dad offered to find the company himself. Since he was laid off recently I figured it couldn't hurt to let him have something to occupy himself with and he's usually got a good eye for scams. He hired Chicago Moving systems and paid for 400 of the initial cost himself as a gift. I had everything packed and the Chicago movers were really pretty nice and very efficient, and I didn't know then about the huge warning sign that they charged by cubic feet.

The stuff got to California about 2 weeks late but I honestly didn't mind that much, but when the stuff showed up it was a completely different person than anyone I had dealt with before. All that showed up was one scummy sort of foreman character who apparently hired two illegals from a home depot. I don't want to get the illegal workers in this area in trouble so I wasn't about to report it - nor do the police in the area really care, but neither of them spoke any English at all. They also lifted with their backs and put 30 pound boxes on their necks - definitely not professional movers.

Of course, I had the classic stuff-held-for-ransom situation, but what made mine worse is they never let me know when they were going to show up. I had called the Chicago Moving Systems guy and he never really clued me in that the driver was somebody I had never even talked to. He told me they would give me 24 hours notice so I could alert work. Instead, I got an angry call from my landlord one day while I was at work. Apparently there was a short angry guy (the foreman) knocking on the door of her office every 15 minutes and also bothering my neighbors asking where I was.

The only thing that made me feel a little better about it was he was a real shrimp of a guy, only about 5'6 and I'm a sort of imposing 6'4, so when I showed up he had a real oh crap look on his face. He barely muttered out that he was holding my stuff ransom and I needed to pay an extra 550 dollars. I let the profanities fly, called him scum of the earth while I paid the fee then yelled at him to get my stuff. I figured at his point I was pretty screwed out of cash so I was getting all my joys out of making him fear for his life. He really thought he was just going to sit in the cab of the truck while the two other guys had to do everything! That bothers me on a whole other level, so I screamed at him to get to work and called him every name in the book, never saw someone run so damn fast.

I really don't recommend getting this angry or getting as loud or mean as I got if it happens to you, but I can't even explain the level of aggravated I was on - my brain was telling me no need to get angry, but my body was having none of it.

Best part, at the end he's standing at the door with this nasty I can't believe you made me work look on his face and he says that tips were customary. I broke out a smile, said hey you're all right really sorry about all that, let me grab my wallet, then kicked the door shut. THEN he had the nerve to keep pounding on my door, look in my windows, and knock on my windows for 5 minutes. Suddenly that "other move he needs to get to 30 miles away" must have gotten a lot less important. Only thing that got the rat to leave was when I said in a loud voice "Hello police, I'd like to report a prowler harassing all of the tenants in my complex." I wasn't actually calling the police but thinking back I really should have.

As angry as I was and as squirmy as the little punk got, it still doesn't give me back my 550 dollars, so definitely always do your reaearch first, don't get lazy and let someone else do your work for you and stay far far away from Chicago Moving Systems.
