All stay clear of this moving company as we were told they were all retired law enforcement workers and that our life belongings would be treated with care and many other promises that turned into false statements. The company arrived at our out of state moving location sooner then we had scheduled them  to and we had to find a Western union to forward cash or they were going to bring our goods back to NY and we would be charged for 2 moves. Please know we had 4 little ones all under the age of 9 with on our travel to South Carolina. Once we found a western union at a truck stop in West Virginia, we had only minutes to send them their money or they were going to leave. Our bank was closed as this was an evening event. We asked if they could please wait till morning so we could get in touch with our bank. They refused and were to leave early the next morning if we did not comply with their outrageous demands. [continued below]....
..... We had to ask a family member to use their 3 credit cards to get them their money in cash. 3 credit cards mind you. After begging a family member to run to their western union and forward the amount to the moving companies bank account in NY. Keep in mind we are at a truck stop in West Virginia waiting for a confirmation that the cash had been wired over tho Barrs account in NY. We contacted the movers in SC and gave them a confirmation number and asked them please to unload our belongings at a public storage facility that we had to also find over the phone  in the Greenville SC. area all on the same day due to the fact that the movers were early. One they got the CASH not the confirmation number mind you THE CASH in their account did they unload our belongings. Well we got to South Carolina Public storage a day later and found as we have photos to prove our belongings CRUSHED, BROKEN and for the most part DESTROYED, not to mention the items we were missing. We contacted them and at the very least requested to have our damaged belongings replaced and to no avail they did not respond. We then sent a registered certified letter and requested the cash DISCOUNT we were promised due to the cash wire to their account via Western Union be honored and that we were to mitigate our damages legally with respect to our belongings.  The responce we got was a certified letter  from Richard D. Barr and it Stated,  " You are entitled to a 5% cash discount, Western Union is considered a certified check.
