Ryder VanLines, Sprint VanLines--Good/Bad to use fr MD to FL
Do not go on line to find a moving company. You greatly increase your chance of getting scammed if you find a moving company that way. In fact, you're almost 100% assured of getting scammed if you hire a company off the internet. Consult the article on this website "How to Find a Reputable Mover." Follow the guidelines there and once you've had two or three in-home estimates, post the names and DOT numbers of the companies you're considering and one of the volunteers will help you evaluate them. I repeat, DO NOT hire a moving company that contacts you as a result of your posting your information on a moving website.

Sprint had one complaint which was proven to be false, and none since then. Still, there's something about the company that gets my "hinky-meter" going. First, they have a legal name of A.S. International Enterprise. Like Ryders, Giant, Chesapeake, and several of the disreputable movers in MD, there seems to be a proliferation of legal names with initials and "enterprises,", "opportunities", etc, in the name. They obviously are using each other as references. In one instance, a $21,000 judgement for a victim cannot be collectd because the mover was sued, and the bank acounts are in the legal name.
For another reason, they advertise on www.vanlines.com and www.123movers.com, two websites which have consistently linked customers with scammers.
There are a number of reputable companies in thee area. There are about ten people moving away from the DC area the last two weeks, if you do some searching around the site, you can get some tips.
