ALERT - avoid All Year Round Movers in FL (MC #550454)

Postby zodiacmindwarp 6 » Mon Feb 19, 2007 2:27 pm

:shock:

Hello, My name's Charles Collier. I got an estimate from all year round movers for a move from Norfolk Va, to Harrington ME. The estimate was for 1854.00 for a 10 x 15 storage.. When the movers arrived they said the new estimate is 3445.00. they were supposed to empty the storage,, but didn't. and the new final estimate is 4354.00 not including the 1000.00 i put down as a deposit. I was told that there suppose to deliver the furniture for 100%-110% of orginal estimate, then bill you for any overage. There telling me there not going to unless i pay the new inflated price. I file the necssary complaints to FMCR, and DOT, is there anything else u can do

Did they have you sign something after they picked up your goods saying the weight difference and the increase in cost? Did they do a visual estimate of the storage space initially?

Is this the correct company?
http://li-public.fmcsa.dot.gov/LIVIEW/p ... ath=LIVIEW

They've only been doing interstate moves since Oct 2006.

They also have an unsatisfactory record with the BBB:
http://www.bbbsoutheastflorida.org/nis/ ... 0009002061

The owner is listed as:
BENYAMIN, BENYAMIN
2703 NW 29 TERRACE
LAUDERDALE LAKES FL 33311 P/D

and the other officer:
ZAFRIT, RUVIO
2703 NW 29 TERRACE
LAUDERDALE LAKES FL 33311 S/T

zodiac,

Is this the company with the website www.allyearmovers.com ? If so, it has MC #550454 and is (supposedly) HQd in South Florida. I'll add a warning about it to my Superlist linked to below.

PS to MM and Farrah - I wonder whether this is a reincarnation of some other scammer. Its website (by AdirNet) is well-developed and its interstate license dates only to 10/06.

From their webpage:
http://www.allyearmovers.com/rights_and ... ities.html
The following document was prepared by the Federal Highway Administration (FHA). This is a must-read for anyone who's considering - or actively involved in - a move. Just click on a link below to learn about everything from estimates and agreements to bills of lading and payment scenarios.

Your mover should provide you with a pamphlet that contains information about your rights and responsibilities as a shipper of household goods. The mover should also furnish you with a pamphlet describing its procedures for handling your questions and complaints.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) regulations protect consumers on interstate moves and define the rights and responsibilities of consumers and household goods carriers (movers).


Um, the FHA or FHWA? :?

Charles, can you tell us what your estimate was for? How many pounds (or did they quote cubic feet) and was it a binding or non-binding estimate?
