Miranda Moving Company-

I would like to start off that this was the most disappointing service we have ever received. We want to go on notice as to the horrific experience this was working with this company.

Firstly, when Cisco aka Francisco came out to give us an estimate, he went through the entire house and noted everything that was there. We did say that we would take some breakable items that were located in the dining room. It was also agreed upon that there would be some items to be dropped off at our office in Scottsdale.

We had told Cisco that our previous move to this property took 2 trucks, 4 men and 11.5 hours. Also the previous moving company had the same type of obligation to move furniture to the office and from the office as well as the entire home.

This was all conveyed to Miranda Moving Company (Cisco). Cisco stated that what we were asking Would all be done for no more than $1700 but we will shoot for $1500. [continued below]....
..... Cisco also said I quote for worst case scenario in case nothing is taken by the owners. At the time Cisco left this was the agreement made between all parties.

When the men arrived at my home, they were 1 hour late to begin with. They walked the home to see what they were facing and then started the move. The men were doing a good job in getting the furniture out of the house, but the problem seemed to arise with the packing of the truck. One of the mens comments was "Too many chiefs and not enough Indians" It took 5 hours to load two trucks with 6 men. The lead man then came to us and said We are going to take these two trucks to your new house, empty one with the 6 men and then 3 men are going to go back to the old house to retrieve all the rest of the items that were left behind.

At this time the lead man had asked us to mark the items we wanted taken. We stated all that was still left at the home. He said OK and had no problem with that arrangement. He proceeded to have all his men bring all items that were left in the home, into the great room so that he wouldn't forget anything. We all the old house at 2:00 pm. The movers did not arrive at the new house until 3:30 pm or so. All 6 men unloaded the one truck by 4:30 pm. By then the lead driver said they were going to head back up to the old house and pick up all of the remaining items at the home. He said it should take about an hour to get up there in traffic and 1 1/2 hours to load. Then they would call to meet us at the office after they finished. We also instructed the men to shut the gate at the old home when leaving, they did not do that.

The 3 men did not arrive to the guard gate at the old house until 6:20 pm. The security guard had called us to ensure they were allowed to enter the gate. The remaining 3 men left at the new home, unloaded the one left behind truck until 9:30 pm. At this time we (including the 3 left behind movers) all were wondering why the other drivers at the old home had not called yet to meet us at the office for drop off and pick up. When we called the 3 men, they said We have another hour and a half to load.

With this information, that means it took the men almost two hours to get to the old home....which if you look at MapQuest it takes 45 minutes to drive. Also it took 3 men 3 hours to load one truck not including the other hour and a half to do go they said they had and the drive back. The 3 men unloading at the new house were unloading as fast as they could to avoid the rain that was pending. The one gentleman said We will unload then set up all the furniture in the home afterwards.

After unloading the truck but not before setting up the furniture in the home, the 3 men left behind decided it was best for them to go to the office for the pick up as the other 3 men were still loading at the old home. The one gentleman said We will go pick up at the office, come back to the new house and unload the few things from the office and then set up.

At 10:30 pm John got a voice mail from the 3 men at the old house saying they were leaving the old house and they needed to talk to Cisco directly from this point on. After talking to Cisco, he said the second crew that was at the new house would NOT be going to the office for pick up and the other crew from the old house would NOT be coming to the new house with the last load. He stated they would come back first thing the next morning. At this time we were under the impression that everything was removed from the old house and all that needed to be done was the drop off and pick up at the office and unloading of the truck. Also, Cisco, the owner assured us that he would be at the new hosue at this time of unloading to manage the rest of the move and he too felt the time gap from when the crew left the new house at 4:30pm to when they finished at 10:30 pm was suspicious.

They next day, Cisco arrived with only one of his workers to unload the truck with the remaining items from the old house. This was not including the office drop off/pick uponly the items from the old house. After completion of unloading the truck only, Cisco presenting us with a bill for $1,700. At this time we realized that not all of the items from the old hose had arrived including lamps, mirrors, food, etc. Cisco said the crew LEFT THEM THERE. There was a very heated argument between Cisco and ourselves about this move and that we did not got what we were promised nor completion of the job he was hired to perform.

We feel very strongly that we were taken advantage of. Cisco was NOT there at the job sight to supervise again as promised. When we asked Cisco to finish the job he stated he would not do this as he has lost money during this job. As it was expressed to him that this was at no fault of ours and the job needed to be completed. Cisco was asked several times to leave the home and would NOT leave unless he got paid. We wrote him $1000 check as we felt this was fair because his crew did move us however did not complete the job. Cisco would not accept this and bullied us into giving him the rest of the money ($700) because he said there were only a few lamps left and some greenery at the old house. In good faith we paid the full amount even though he did not go to the office to drop off and pick up, we complied and finally Cisco left.

Upon Cisco leaving, we went back to the old house and found that more than 3 car loads of items were left behind and all the food that was in the refrigerator and freezer was left out and had gone bad. At this time we got very upset because way more than what Cisco said was left behind and now all our food has gone bad.

This being said, and after talking to our attorney we feel that we have not gotten the service we were promised. We had to hire other movers to finish the job. The loss is absorbent not so say the wear and tear on the nerves. Why the second crew was there for 6 hours and then decided to leave a huge portion of it is a mystery. That is so uncalled for, unprofessional and out of line. This whole job was unprofessional on Miranda Moving Companys part.

What seems to have happened is that Cisco underbid the job and just tried to recoup the loss by not finishing the job. It is unfortunate that this has turned into such a fiasco.....none to our doing. We have done nothing wrong but hired a moving company to perform services to move the home and that was not done. Also many mistakes were made by this company and this has been a horrible experience for all involved.

In response to these vituperative accusations: Firstly don't ever think that you are going to get a fair hearing in small claims court before an arbitrator. Evidence produced was dismissed, and a copulation of damages was also said inadmissible. How preposterous! A simple rule of law that the arbitrator ignored. While it was ordered that we do pay, it is absolutely ludicrous that Miranda get paid for a job not finished and what was done was shoddy sloppy work.

On what planet do you agree to a price for moving a home and leave of the furniture at the old house and refuse to go and get it? The judge hung his hat on the fact that the paperwork was signed accepting the job as done. What was not taken into consideration is that the job was contracted by one party and another party signed the work order under duress because the owner of Miranda threatened to not leave the property and was going to start loading up the furniture. Again what reputable company acts in this manor.

We are so sure that if this were to be heard by a real judge in a real court we would prevail and we will. We are taking this to a higher court as we will not allow our reputation to be besmirched. Pictures speak a thousand words. Take a look for yourself. Would you like to be treated this way?

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Miranda Delivery Rebuttal

AUTHOR: Cisco Miranda - (United States of America)

Mr. John and Cindy Bezick should be upset after loosing a court judgement  that was filed against them by our company for lack of payment.  The case was filed against them after a check was canceled days after the job was completed.  We have presented to the Maricopa County Justice Courts paperwork signed by the Bezick's that stated the job was completed and all items received in good condition.  

This case went before a judge on 10-11-12. The courts saw right through the lies and stories told by the Bezick family.  That is why it is important as a company to have all documentation and paperwork in order.  If we had done anything wrong,  case #CC2012138551-SC would not have been in the favor of Miranda Delivery Service, LLC.    

Even after the courts have ruled against the Bezick family, they refused to pay the  balance, stating  " If you want to get paid , you must get in line.  I owe more people than you can imagine."  This was surprising to me since they are also business owners of "Hometenders of America, LLC" and  "Masterpiece Fine Properties , LLC".    I will continue my efforts in collecting the full amount that was awarded to our company by the courts to hopefully stop any more fraud done by this family.
