GEM Trucking is new name for KX Express

Postby rza » Sun Aug 12, 2007 12:07 am

By far the most incompetent and pathetic company I've ever dealt with. The owner Peter is completely disorganized and has no idea how to run a business. They don't have any type of system to receive messages or talk to anyone that knows where your stuff is or when you will get it. They took four weeks to deliver my things after changing the date over and over again and making every excuse in the book. When the stuff finally got here, there were missing and damaged items. I hope nobody ever has the misfortune of working with them.

Is this the company you're referring to? There's numerous GEM Trucking companies out there:

Nope. It's Gem trucking based in Wilmington, CA: http://www.labbb.org/BBBWeb/Forms/Busin ... =100053078

The owner's name is Peter and is horrible to deal with.

Gem Trucking

Where was your move to and from? I would contact the CA PUC, I don't think they are licensed:

This company must go by a different name, because I can't find record of them anywhere except the BBB.

That's the company I posted above, MusicMom, but the OP said this wasn't the same company.

Searching on the phone number on Google brings up www.cnstransportation.com and that may be the following company because Bell isn't too far from Wilmington - http://kepler.ss.ca.gov/corpdata/ShowAl ... r=C2932008

Anyway, Gem has a "D" rating with the LA area BBB.

Oh, sorry, Farrah. I just focused on the "CA" portion of the company.

Would this be Peter Ho Kim, previously of KX Express?

Yep, the address is the same. Good work, D!

Interesting, because CNS Transportation is not LICENSED to do interstate HHG moves, only auto:

CNS Transportation also is not listed on the CA PUC site.

I'm not sure that the company you found on www.safersys.org is the same company, Farrah. La Mesa and Escondido are far from Bell and Wilmington.

Well, that's probably a good thing then.
