I also had a very bad experience with Desi movers. They showed up on time & were pleasant, but moved VERY slowly (e.g. taking 2 boxes at a time down the elevator instead of filling it) pushing the move into overtime, charging extra for stairs, mileage, etc. It cost me about twice as much as I had been quoted all told.

We are planning on suing Desi movers after they blackmailed us into paying them more than originally agreed upon, then took off without moving all our stuff. Send me an email if you're interested in joining.

Desi movers are just plain fraud artists. They quote one thin on the phone, then another when it's all over. They do not use blankets or covers for your goods on their truck. Could not care less about the damage they do to your goods. They do not have a clue about how to load a truck, what they leave behind , what they damage or anything else for that matter.
Jason and the rest of these guys should be rotting in jail somewherre!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The same story happened with me on Feb 29th. It seems that these people have made it a habit of scamming people and unless something is done about them , they will continue to do that fearlessly which is a shame.
I have already filed a complaint in Better Business Bureau and I would advise you all to do something (put pressure on the authorities) , so that these people are not permitted to operate.Does anyone know wether there is a licensing authority that permits them to operate. We should all make a complaint to them.

Are all you talking about Desi Movers in the Bay Area (San Jose, California) or is it someone else? I contacted this guy from http://www.desimovers.com/ and am planning to move next month within San Jose area. Can any of you suggest whether these guys are good?
10. On April 10th, 2008 at 9:23 am sandy Says:
No, this is Desi Movers in Toronto. The beginning of the second paragraph of the post states that.

The saga continues, one more victim me gets added to the list. It was absolutely horrendous. The movers are rude, slow and so unprofessional. You land up paying for services that they haven't even provided. The original price ballonned from $44/hr to $180/hr !! Landed up paying a hugely inflated bill. worse, they didnt complete the job and left half way through the job, leaving me high and dry !
If the above people went through what i went through, than i hope you guys are equally eager to do something .. atleast ensure that no one in the future gets cheated the way we have.
For starters, anyone reading this blogplzzzz do not engage DESI MOVERSthey are apparently going by the name of DYNAMIC MOVERS now.

Another victim of desi movers. we are planning to complain to better bussiness berau and to the court. They did not explain the contract before getting it signed. Desi movers harrased during moving asking for money every now and then instead of asking for after the loading was done. we had to go to find out the movers and find them drining coffee. they did not load the truck fully and ran away after unloading without giving us final bill. The worst was, one of the movers verbelly assualted woman. we are even planning to write it up in the news papers and soon we will be contacting the ministry for their robbing, harrasing, assualting and frauds to the public.

This is my yesterdays experience with Desi movers. I was told that It will cost $52 per hour and estimated cost would be $250 to $ 300 and then extorted more than $2000 and did not unload also properly .They were so full of themselves that they said even cops won't do anything as it is a civil case.Let us all get together otherwise these guys are going to be on rampage.
16. On July 4th, 2008 at 11:19 am Kim Says:
My father and I were taken in by Desi Movers yesterday July 3,2008. Based on a telephone quote and nespaper ad of $40 per hour, my father decided to hire desi movers to move a simple basement apt. The movers arrived 2 hours late and then took 2 hours to pack a truck which was too small to hold the contents of the apt. After packing the truck, albeit improperly and tearing all the couches the driver then had the audacity to sit in the truck and demand payment before starting the engine! I also should mention that he demanded a $500 deposit upon his two hour late arrival. The drive to the new location which was litterally ten minutes away turned into an hour wait because We got lost and then they wanted to charge us for the travel time. At the end of it all there was an hour and a half long argument over charges totalling $725. Clearly I disputed these charges until the robbery was adjusted and they graciously dropped some of the charges-that should never have been put on the bill in the first place. They unloaded the truck grudgingly and then half way through the move told my father they had to move the truck to clear the way for other tenants. Needless to say that they must have moved the truck back to their office and went home because they never returned to complete the move! My father and I were left in the loading area (with a one year old in tow) to move the rest of the items (conveniently all the heavy/large things) by ourselves. If anyone reads this, flag this company in your minds so if you ever know someone that is thinking of using Desi Movers tell them to run screaming in the other direction.

I was also ripped off by Desi movers. They got $2500 from me, when the move was only supposed to cost $550. I already FIled a Complaint to BBB, and I want to sue them, but I need enough people to support me with this case. Join together to help me do something about this moving hell company!

IWe were scaammed by Desi Movers too- They arrived late - demanded a $500.00 deposit before loading- moved very slowly,consatntly complaining about how tired they were from their morning job- took many breaks- then when they closed their truck which was not fully loaded , they demanded another $530.00 - or they would take off with our goods- there were all kinds of charges that were never disclosed before at the time of agreement- We were only advised of $50.00/hr- whenwe asked for a fax copy of the agreement -, they said it was not neccessary- anyway weKNOW THAT WERE CHEATED- Not only did they take double the money from us then nthe original quote - at $50.00 hr which is $500.00 but they left after 7hrs instead of ten hours, and left half of our goods at our home that we moved from- We had to rent a truck and get n new crew to help us the next day and pay our landlord for two more days rent- The behaviour that the movers displayed was
frightening - rude and unco-operative and we are disputing the time.
I will add to the details later - PLEASE BE AWARE OF TRICKSTERS _ MY ADVICE TO ALL
HOMEOWNERS THAT ARE PLANNING A MOVE _Thorougly check out the buisness before signign up - Please do not fall prey as we have.

We had people hire this company to pick up furniture. They gave them a price
over the phone
said there were no extra(hidden ) charges but when they had loaded the
furniture they told
them there was a $300 deposit and other charges which added up to nearly
twice what was quoted.

Hi, I used Dynamex. Do the people working for Desi use other names of the company to cheat people? Thanks.
22. On August 19th, 2008 at 6:51 pm frank and Lydia Says:
this company was hired for June 6 2008. They loaded the truck and moved our stuff to their storage facility. Before they would unload our property they demanded payment. They also demanded extra costs for hidden fees. The estimate was $600 and ended up paying $3000.00. If anyone is commencing with any legal action please contact us. Thank you

We just got scammed today (Aug 24th) by these A** H****.
First they showed up 2 hours late, we were moving from a apartment to a house. First off they wanted $500 deposit and after they loaded the truck they wanted another $800 which I paid in cash because that's what they wanted. After they arrived they wanted another $800 after aruging for some timewith my two small kids crying . They advised us that they will start throwing our stuff outside if we do not pay then more. I called the local police who did not care about what was happening to us they said it was a private matter. The local police department was useless. The distance between the moves was 10 minutes I end up calling my family over to move the stuff since they left everything on the driveway and they refused to take the stuff inside less we paid them more. I would never recommend these criminals for moving. I had movers in the past and I never paid more then $350 to $450. If anyone is interested in starting a law suit please contact me.our move was in Brampton.

I can't believe that i did not read this web site before hiring Desi Movers. Anyone thinking of hiring Desi MoversPLEASE DO NOT. THEY ARE A SCAM.
They quoted us $48 for a 4 hour job, including travelling time (should have paid in the neighbourhood of $300-$350). I was asked to pay $841 upon arrival at the destination. After several discussions with Jay, I ended up paying $700 as they were holding my goods as a hostage. Then they left in the middle of the job and left me and my wife on our own to move the heavy stuff.
Seems like I am not the first to go through this. I will be contacting others to discuss a lawsuit.
DO NOT USE DESI MOVERSTHEY ARE A SCAM. I CAN NOT BE ANY CLEARER THAN THIS.

27. On September 30th, 2008 at 11:31 am Jennifer Says:
I too was ripped off by these guys on July 29, 2008. In fact twice in one day. The first company quoted price on phone then showed up with contract full off hidden fees. I suspect they were hoping I had no choice. I sent them away. I called second company that came the same afternoon. The 2nd company also quoted $44 rate on phone, assured me there would be no extra charges. When they showed up they demanded $300 up front. I called Jason and agreed on $150. cash up front, and balance at the other end. It was very assertive negotiating. I asked driver to show me the contract or receipt first. He gave me a receipt and took my cash. (Throughout this, the driver was off and on the phone several times with Jason) Then the contract came out, with all these hidden fees. I refused to sign. They drove away with my $150 cash. They had never touched a stick of furniture. Police caught them driving away, but did not have authority to make them return money. Turns out both companies fall under the same roof. Dynamic and dynamite driving a desi movers truck. Andy and Jason. I would also like to take part in your law suit.
28. On September 30th, 2008 at 8:55 pm Jennifer Says:

We got robbed yesterday by them, same situation, quoted $200 flat for 4 hours, we had only 2 ITEMS to move from one place to another, 15 minutes drive, 20 minutes work.
They asked for cash before starting, in the middle they asked for $200 more for having to roll the dolly on a ramp, after moving the 2 items into the truck, they asked for $600 total before delivering to destination, we refused to pay $600, THEY UNLOADED THE ITEMS ON THE GROUND AND LEFT with $400. We called the Police, they said to file as Small Claims. With much difficulty my husband and I managed to put the table into our car and drove ourselves to the destination, when we came back to pick up the Buffet, somebody had already taken it..
We are ready to take any action, I will file a complaint with BBB and my husband is looking into filing it at the Small Claims Court.
DESI MOVERS ARE ROBBERS. TOOk $400 AND LEFT OUR STUFF ON THE FLOOR, OUTSIDE OUR BULDING WHERE THEY STARTED.
