Re: North American Moving Network, Inc., is a scam

O.K. rogue movers may call for rogue tactics. If you can get the police to be there, great. If you are able to have media coverage - not bad - that could cover how you verify you paid them $1,000 - get it on camera. As for finding a scale - call your local police department. They enforce "overweight...

Re: Required documents - shipping to Australia

80mm - sure hope you didn't have to change all your meetings in the U.S.

SURELY Patrick, after all the delays this customer has endured you could arrange to have his shipment delivered after his return and NOT charge him for having it held for another week, right? Show your good side here!

Re: Question about valuation of goods...

I am surprised that Allstate covers you - if so - please ask them to provide you with the highlighted portion of your homeowner's policy so you know what to reference IF you need it (and of course I hope you don't!) Actually - my own State Farm agent didn't cover us when we moved. The only one I kne...

Re: Required documents - shipping to Australia

I guess the little experience I have had in international has been slightly different and national accounts that we also do domestic for, so we've never required 100% of the money up front.

Re: Required documents - shipping to Australia

I haven't followed this one start to finish, but Patrick, you are allowing him to pay you by either credit card or by check at delivery, right? You are not expecting him to pay for your services in full before he receives his shipment, are you?

Re: Pak Mail?

Given what you have and your previous experience - I would visit a local consignment store that handles office furniture and sell yours, then UPS your boxed belongings and purchase what you need when you arrive at your new location. I'm not sounding so much like a mover as a concerned person anymore...

Re: Possible scam in the works Fast and Easy Van lines

I'm not one of the research folks - but here's the #'s I was given when I called and asked for DOT # 1009732 and she said ICC # 425776.

Re: Crowne Relocation?

Just a crazy thought - are you moving any furniture or will all you owned be boxed? If it's boxed - why not UPS it to yourself? You can insure each individual carton, ship them from "Mail Boxes, Etc." and you'll know how it's packed because you did it. If you MUST use a carrier - there will be a dif...

Re: Ever heard of Northstar Moving Enterprise (NYC) ?

an average studio apartment As a mover I have to tell you - there is no such thing as "average" when it comes to moving. The example I've used in the past is if someone said they had "two average bedrooms" - let me contrast 2 bedrooms in my own home for you. My son has a twin bed, a dresser, and a ...

Re: nyc to chicago with broadwayexpress

Just one comment here - the driver said if he got hurt "off the truck" he wasn't insured, but expected you to come into the truck for various reasons. As a mover - we don't allow anyone other than our own employees on the trucks as those other folks aren't insured if they are in our vehicles. Just s...

Re: AAA Membership - Insurance Coverage?

O.K. - don't want to stir the pot - and perhaps you meant a $6,000 item, not necessarily a television - PLEASE don't let this scare you all even more - but anything that plugs in, and some things that run on batteries - valuation has an exception for "mechanical condition". As movers cannot know if ...

DUCK! Here she goes - I do not work for O'Neil or for United. That said - I know people at O'Neil and the people that I know there are good people. I have known several people who moved with them, and they had few, if any, complaints. If those were the only two options I was given, and since I know ...

Re: Crowne Relocation?

they do corporate relocations and aren't a regular moving company "Corporate relocations" refers to who pays for a move. The moving companies are still required to meet all of the same DOT and insurance regulations as if they were a "regular" moving company - so there should be no difference in how...

Re: Fl to NY

Think logically, too. A rate of less than $500 to move anything that far wouldn't realistically pay for the fuel, much less the labor, depreciation on equipment, etc. Even the good movers are not charities doing this out of the goodness of their heart - - - it is a business. I hate to sound harsh, b...
