[size=18][b]Problems with Move[/b][/size]
Didnt arrive on time pulled the job forward 1 day, they committed to arrive between 9 and 1 to avoid school getting out since we live in a cross walk area. They arrived at 3:30 exactly when school gets out.
o Company Response We said in the contract we could arrive anytime that day.
Worked till 12:30 am when we have an 8 month old infant and neighbors See worker issues
o Company Response - Well it was a big move
Didnt arrive with adequate truck space in accordance with our previous day phone call to clarify the inventory
o Company Response Well at least we got the job done that day
Because the truck didnt arrive on time the job foreman left the job site and took one employee for a couple hours to rent a second truck, and left no one clearly in charge. Thean he left his license behind and the 2nd guy had to drive to/from the job site again.
o Company Response Well at least we got the job done that day
Employees for the job were smoking and drinking at the job site. We were moving out and staging our home and they left cigarette butts all over the property.
o Company Response - None
The movers arrived without tools to take apart the furniture which was in the contract, and they had no dollys to move our furniture. They borrowed our tools and our dolly to move the furniture.furniture.
o Company Response We would have bought tools if you didnt have them, but that would have made the job take longer for you.
Significant damage to all of our wood items including a custom bookcase we received as a wedding gift, new mattress, our recliner, and metal shelving units. Missing a part of our drum set. Still awaiting claim form. The guy we received our stuff from (new company) said we got off good as the previous customer of the same company lost a $10,000 table.
o Company Response We will send you our claim form, no apology
They moved the equipment in our home without the proper padding and/or people. Damaged walls, original solid wood floors, paint, and the above mentioned content.
o Company Response Well you can file a claim form (I havent received this yet)
They quoted by weight originally and charged by space
[size=18][b]How the company misrepresented themselves[/b][/size]
Used the BBB rating of the Rhode Island Location to gain the legitimacy I required to pay for this move, but the address of the MN office.
Employee assured me they would arrive with a marked truck with their name, paperwork with their name, and possibly t-shirts. They arrived in a Penske rental truck with nothing identifying person as a company employee and no paperwork with company letterhead.
o Company Response - The driver on arrival laughed loudly when I said this was the case, then said not in the summer months due to it being busy.
o Company Response The driverThey called the company so they would email me his name and drivers license number to prove he worked for them.
Theirere website and the phone representative assured me they had professional movers that work specifically for Move Improve Relocation. The movers on site said they were hired locally on Craigs List and that they thought the job was a big mess. They were NOTnot professionals, in fact one of them carried a solid wood buffet down the stairs by himself damaging our home and the buffet. The movers were not professionals per their own admission.
o Company Response I assure you all of our drivers have background checks and drug screening. When I pressed them on the movers instead of drivers they didnt have a good answer.
The DOT website says they only have one truck, but the lady on the phone told me they have lots of trucks. Since they didnt arrive with a truck that is hard to validate, but should be a red flag.
It took a manager 5 days to call me back after my move day
o Company Response They were all at a conference
The person who completed my contract and the person who handled my initial complaint no longer work for the company.
o Company Response - Although regarding Natalie who did my original contract I heard from one person she didnt work their anymore, than I talked to a Natalie, and than also that she now works for dispatch.
I contacted the dispatch number to get a claim form because the home office didn't respond. The driver gave me his personal email address, and indicated they were self insured. As I understand it that isn't the law. I found this info for their insurance on the DOT website.
