I had problems w/ them, too, in August 2005. I'm still trying to resolve it through BBB, State Attorney General, Licensing Bureau.

Can you describe your experience?

It is truly humorous, of how an individuals such as yourselves can tarnish the name of a company. Now you will be facing civil charges for slander and defamation of charachter. A Better Choice Movers conducts close to 3000 moves a year, our complaint record with BBB and Attorney General is less then .002 %. With so many unlicensed movers operating under the switch and bait tacktics, its hard enough to keep a family owned and operated buissnes in operation. If you have a serious complaint in refrence to your move you should definatly contact the office and deal with them directly, instead of posting these harmful comments on a joke of a website.

Dearest guest who obviously is connected to this mover who has not fulfilled their promises to Doug,

Rather than come in and threaten civil action, if you wish to clear your "good name" I would strongly recommend that you provide specific contact information and a list of actions you will take in order to correct the wrongs these fine folks have endured in order to restore that good name of yours.

I often wonder why it is that those movers who scream and yell about being reputable, family owned businesses for years end up searching movingscam to see if their name is listed somewhere.

IMP,

Not my mover on this one.

Just did FMCSA search on them to further enlighten they are illegal.

Did they promote that they were insured/ licenced when they moved you?

Did you pay for insurance???

Contact the below link and call them.

My bad - Doug - should have said Pasta and Guest. The "guest" (uninvited????) from A Better Choice in NJ should tell them how their wrongs will be righted rather than threatening suit.

How can A Better Choice Movers conduct 3000 moves a year (although licensed only since June) with one truck and driver? That's more that 8 moves a day! He must be EXHAUSTED!!!!

I like my life very much and find it wonderfully fulfilling. And somehow I manage to do this without taking advantage of people and their wallets, breaking any laws, destroying property, or otherwise performing the typical acts of a scam mover like A Better Choice Movers, all in the name of making a quick buck.

Might want to try my life instead of yours, Guest.

Me too! Have you gotten anywhere so far? I have not and I feel as if it is a lost cause. I would like to speak more freely about this but i know the company frequently monitors these boards...I am in def need of advice
