Sad too, because they only had the license for a little over a month.

They had it revoked because they changed their name in late January, and the insurance info wasn't sent over. Wonder what it is now?

Sunbiz said they changed their address in early Jan, but they're still listed under GM Van Lines. I looked up the officers to see if there were any incorporations under their names, and there were not.

They're just right down the road from Top Relocation - maybe they should give them a call!

Can u plz instruct the consumer to stop requesting to be moved for next to nothing. Really, its getting rediculous. I give a reputable quote and the consumer comes back with "thats way too much i can get this done for way cheaper". Well as you know that if the drivers and laborers are not making the correct money for a job they will not do the above and beyond work. This is the root of all complaints in this business. If the consumer is aware that you get what you pay for (i know thats not right either) in trhis business. They have to be aware that it cost alot of money to fill their tanks and to lug their pullout sofa and carry to the truck. The consumer is always looking for the cheapest deal and they will get the low ball but if things don't go as smooth as they wanted its all the moving companies falt. So instruct them that it is going to cost over $500 to move 6800 lbs going 2900 miles. Really you know I'm right in this.

Interesting that you decided to post your thoughts on this thread....

Anyways, we do tell the customer to expect to be moved by a full service mover for about a $1 per pound. We let them know they can do it themselves for cheaper using a You Load-They Drive scenario, but they must provide the labor and packing and they, themselves, will be responsible for any damages to their goods.

Ask the consumer to put themselves in the drivers and laborers shoes. They have families too!!

I don't remember any customer REQUESTING such a low price, they are offered by the movers without any prompting. The movers flooding the customer's inbox are competing with each other for the lowest price on paper, to just get the business. Then all hell breaks loose.

If you're so pissed that drivers and foreman aren't making the money they're worth, then start working for a company that charges fair prices and passes it on to the workers.

I bet I can go to any find a mover site right now, request a move, post all the prices, and you would laugh yourself silly at the half-price numbers coming from the emails. And I will laugh at the names.

And I think it's important to point out that you, "Tired", previously posted that Top Relocation, a broker, did a wonderful job for you, without mentioning the DRIVERS and LABORERS who were doing the work. Talk about practicing what you preach!

They also posted as "signed docs" on this thread about being a broker:

Which is why I said above that it was interesting they were posting on this thread - as I just happened to mention "Top Relocation" flippantly.

Nobody is pissed, just want the customer to watch out for a low ball price. And believe it or not their are people in this business who do care and want a move to happen with no problems. And beleive it or not that their are moves that go down perfect. You just hear about the ones that don't go so smooth. Especially on this site you only hear the negative never positive. Admit that every moving company on this planet has complaints. So come back with your always negative responses Which you guys are so good at.

That's mostly true, but we do hear some positive reviews - especially people that come back to report on how their move went - after we referred them away from the scammers and they used a reputable moving company.

Dang, Farrah beat me to it. I knew she would having been scammed by your company, Top Relocation.

Especially on this site you only hear the negative never positive.

Not true, the 5-page Superlist of Moving Company Reviews is mostly good reviews provided by MovingScam posters. The few companies that are on the list with :evil: signs are the ones that really deserve mention.
