Re: What to Know About Moving Companies

Once again, none of you has responded with details or facts. I have replied to every factoid/insult that you have posted. No freight quotes from any of you, no facts that one can check, nothing...just ad hominem remarks. Pick one fact that I have mentioned and refer me to a site that disputes that f...

Re: What to Know About Moving Companies

Apparently those who advocate using brand name movers cannot read or respond to requests for details. They can, however, make unsupported ad hominem remarks. By dealing with a pack/load company, an unpack/unload company, and one national, well-known carrier, we saved $3000 - $5000. The employees of ...

Re: What to Know About Moving Companies

Sorry - There is no "specialized equipment" involved in a move. We are talking about muscles, trucks, cardboard, tape, bubble wrap, and dollies. You are trying to make the most basic of work and transportation seem like nuclear physics. Again, with which specific comment of mine do you dis...

Re: What to Know About Moving Companies

GP6971 - Well, you took a potshot at me, but what specific detail in my comments do you dispute? I arranged by lady friend's move, using U-Pack/ABF, a local loader/packer, and an unloader/unpacker at destination. After my research, I know we could have done better, but the entire move cost came in a...

Re: What to Know About Moving Companies

JAH's reply to my posting avoided details. I said that some (maybe most) movers will give the consumer a refund if the carton count or weight turns out to be less than estimated. However, movers will NOT refund the prices they quoted. My example of a price of $49/cwt versus a refund of $22/cwt was t...

Re: What to Know About Moving Companies

Noone is obviously an employee of a moving company. Name a moving company that has packers/loaders on their full-time payroll. There might be one somewhere, but who? Movers' "not to exceed" quotes are bogus, because, as I mentioned, salespeople always over-estimate. "Refunds", if...

What to Know About Moving Companies

1) Moving companies consolidate loads. Your household goods will travel in the same semi-trailer as the goods of one or two or more other households, each having paid for transportation. Example: Assume three households (HH), moving to the Philadelphia area. HH 1 is 1200 miles from Phili; HH 2 is 80...

new review of Wheaton World Wide Moving

Moving with Wheaton Van Lines/Crown Moving and Storage – Indianapolis, IN Most Americans do not understand how moving companies operate and, apparently, do not care. Because of their indifference, consumers pay thousands of extra dollars pursuant to what is, at root, a near fraud. We obtained a numb...
