First, I did not request the additional packing of boxes. Other arrangements had been made to ship any 'excessive' boxes by UPS. The driver stated to my friend in Virginia (Melanie Smith) that the extra boxes would not be a problem because my belonging took up less space than previously believed so their would be no additional charge.
USA Van Lines is claiming that the 10 extra boxes required 150 cubit sq. ft of space which justifies their original additional charge of $1500.
Obviously I argued this point and the customer service representative lowered the amount to $980 for the additional 10 boxes (moving boxes, not crates or anything). I am not above paying a reasonable amount for the additional 10 boxes; however, I do not feel that $980 is reasonable especially when I did not request the service.
Anyway, the original $2713 and the additional $980 have been paid in full to USA Van Lines via cashier's check; however, they are still refusing to ship my belongings or to give a delivery date for my household goods.
Furthermore, originally, the company agreed to 'full payment' when the furniture arrived to Colorado Springs since I was not physically in Virginia where the household goods were located. After picking up the shipment (on 25 Jul when I was told of the additional charges) the
company said I must also pay 60% immediately or they would not ship the goods, which also broke their original agreement. I paid the entire amount ($3700) and the company is still refusing to commit to a delivery date.
I have contacted the company repeatedly and for my efforts I have been lied to, threaten, given ultimatums, put on 'indefinite' hold, etc. I am at a loss. Research showed that that USA Van Lines (also known as United Express Moving, Inc) has been the defendant in four lawsuits during the past 8 months ranging from damages to contractual failure to indebtedness. To cases have resulted in judgements against USA Van Lines (both holding a status of
'Unsatisfied') and the other two remaining cases are still pending.
