Re: Move from CA to NC (anybody used Fix Price Move)

NorthStar in Chatsworth has a AAA rating with the Santa Barbara BBB.

Why would the Santa Barbara BBB rate a Los Angeles based company?
Where or who would the Santa Barbara complaints come from?

Re: Hercules Moving Systems

It IS the same company. Looks like they did a name change to hide their F rating with the BBB.

Re: North American Van Lines and Eckert's Moving & Storage

Eckert's would be a very good choice.
North American does have operating authority within the state of California, and your shipment would most likely be hauled by a NACAL driver.

Re: DN VANLINES - MASSACHUSETTS

I know you have better choices.

DN VAN LINES, 9 complaints with the BBB in the last 36 months. A LOT for a small company.

A lot depends on where you are moving. If it's long distance definately find someone else. Complaints regarding delivery with BBB.

What inventory list are you sending?
Did Moovers ask for your own or one of the other companies inventory?
