DIRECT MOVING AND STORAGE INC

Postby traveler07 » Fri Aug 10, 2007 3:51 pm

Has anyone heard of Direct Moving and Storage, Inc?
The company is based in Van Nuys, CA.
6308 WOODMAN AVE STE 216
VAN NUYS CA 91401
(800) 259-5461
Fax: (818) 787-0660
US DOT: 1606889
MC594217
It checks out on BBB (grade B) and on FMCSA (meeting all of movingscam.com's recommendations), but I couldn't find any postings on it. I'm moving at the end of the month from San Diego to DC.

Thanks!

2 things:

First, the company is in LA and you're in San Diego, so they can't come and do an in home estimate. Just on that basis alone you need to throw them out.

Second, they've only licensed to do interstate (out of CA) moves since March 2007 - which is not long enough to have a good history behind them.

Find a local company to come and do an in home estimate for you.

AVOID them like the plague. They are scammers. They took our stuff from PHOENIX to California (It was supposed to go to INDIANA.) They did not meet the delivery date. Poor to no communication. I have been yelled at, hung up on and whined to, not to mention the communication/language barrier of the office staff. They subcontracted the delivery of our stuff to another non licensed delivery company. The Feds are on their trail. I have complained to the BBB.
