When I contacted this moving company they agreed to move all possessions of mine, my wife and young son from Saddle Brook, NJ to River Edge, NJ. They showed up, loaded everything on there moving van including things that couldn't be replaced like possessions my young son had including things given to him from birth and all family photos of my wifes family and legal documents.In all there was 6 rooms of furniture. When the van pulled away from my previous residence Mr. Bretter called me on my cell phone and informed me ALL of our possessions were being taken to his storage facility because of what he alleged were previous amounts owed to him by me from previous moves. My son who suffers from Asthma went into an attack. We had nothing. We begged him for some of our Sofa Pillows so my son could sleep on them that night. Mrs. Bretter showed up and gave us what was a bill for previous amounts that they said were owed and two days later another bill arrived in the mail with still another amount they said was owed. The Police said they couldn't do anything and this was a civil matter. (Of course if this happened to one of their own their reaction would have been much different I am sure).  After several court appearances and with Mr. and Mrs. Bretter's attorney who also has the compassion of a knat there a final disposition was to be heard from the Judge. The day the court hearing was scheduled I was in the hospital and their attorney was told of this. Long story to short-hearing went on without me-I lost and all our possessions which were either sold or thrown away including all our priceless things. If money was owed sue me but stealing?? And the state of NJ  and the individual in charge of these violations is personal friends of Amos and Gila. Can't win situation. I am now nearly divorced because of them and my son will not speak to me because he lost everything. BEWARE of who you do business with because scams like this happens every day. Their attorney has told me if I go public with this they will sue me. Threats and stolen goods are all this moving company is good for and now I have un covered numerous cases of abuse they have done to other people. I guess you can get away with this in Israel where this couple come from and they can get away with this in New Jersey also. NO JUSTICE in Lovely NJ

Criminal Bretters Still at Large

AUTHOR: another victim - ()

 Criminal Thieves Amos & Gila Bretter are still on the loose. Please beware these Israeli immagrants are now in America raping & pillaging the honest citizens here. The Bretters present themselves as pious members of the New Jersey community as they continue their well practiced thievery of a public unprotected by the corrupt law enforcement & judiciary of New Jersey. Beware of these low bottom feeders.

Now known as "LBD Worldwide Shipping LLC"

AUTHOR: Worst Movers Ever - (United States of America)

These criminals are now known as "LBD Worldwide Shipping LLC".  They are still located out of Fair Lawn and/or Paterson NJ and operate out of the same warehouse at 200 Keen Street in Paterson, NJ 07524.

We booked through an A rated BBB Moving company...who then outsourced us to these F rated criminals.

You name it, they did it wrong.  They didn't show up the day they were scheduled, then they did with only 1 worker.  The move took 2 days!  They more than doubled our quoted estimate AFTER they had half of our belongings on the truck.

Their "dispatcher" demanded more money from us before they would deliver our stuff and threatened to keep our stuff after I balked at the "new" price.  And of course much of our stuff (which was mainly furniture, we moved the boxes ourselves) was damaged.

We have been trying to track them down for over 2 months to file an insurance claim, but of course the 5+ phone numbers we have found for them are disconnect and/or different businesses now.

Amos and Gila Bretter will get theirs one day.

Terrorist Thieves Still at Large

AUTHOR: Ernest - (U.S.A.)

Amos & Gila Bretter, having been in the rogue movers business for years are still illegally, accepting 2nd party bookings.

The FMCSA continually fines them for infractions and even the BBB has finally kicked these thieves to the curb.

Their latest incarnation, as they change name with every new State & Federal fine, is A Topps Moving & Storage

Amos & Gila Bretter -A-Topps Moving & Storage LLC-New Jersey

Most recently the BBB revoked Amos & Gila Bretters membership:


Once again Amos & Gila Bretter have been fined by the Federal government:

Government Actions

On July 6, 2009, A-Topps Moving & Storage LLC entered into a Settlement Agreement with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The agreement settles charges the business violated Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, Hazardous Materials Regulations and/or the Federal Motor Carrier Commercial Regulations.

Under the terms of the agreement, A-Topp's Moving and Storage LLC will pay a non-suspended portion of the civil penalty in the amount of $20, 400 in twelve payments. Execution of the settlement agreement constitutes admissions of the violation(s) set forth in the agreement.

Unfortunately, for the increasing number of Amos & Gila Breters victims, especially those who never hired them, the only legal redress is the additional expense of suing these practiced thieves in court.

Magic Moving and its principals

AUTHOR: Bdj613 - (USA)

You want to get money you say I owe you where is all the possessions you stole from me and my family? I will tell you where-they are gone-you got rid of it all hiding behind some legal proceeding you attended when your lawyer knew I could not attend because I was a patient in the hospital at that time.. You got what you wanted and you did it in the sneaky fashion you are known for. Why didn't you sue me if I owed you all this money before hand. You know why-because you are a lowlife-You gave my son an asthma attack and traumatized him and you didn't care when you stole all our things.that day. You are a thief and a lowlife. You left us with nothing but memories. My wife and son are gone out of my life because of you. Zek and that other piece of crap who worked for you who helped scam me should rot in a place where you all belong. I will plaster all over the internet what you did and if you don't like it come out to the state I live in now and do something about it.I can assure you- you will not like the outcome. I hope your business suffers and the money you obtained by selling my stuff you spend on Doctors. Go back to Israel and try scaming those people. I will forever never forget what you did and how you ruined my life. I am not threatening you in any way but I do wish you everything bad in this life and hope one day you do to someone else what you did to me and he is able to do more to you than I was able too. Tell Joe thanks for all his concern for me. Thats his lawyer folks. You and your firm can go to hell. TO ANYONE WHO READS THIS USE THIS FIRM FOR YOUR MOVING AND CHANCES ARE YOU WILL LOSE EVERYTHING LIKE I DID. Again I am NOT THREATENING YOU WITH ANY HARM so you can't use the legal system against me but I am just stating my opinion about your character and ethics which in my opinion you have none.

#5 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Carl Kleinberg's Slander of Amos & Gila Bretter!

AUTHOR: Gail - (United States of America)

Mr. Kleinberg was not even decent enough to identify himself in his slanderous posting. We performed 4 separate moving services for him and were never paid. After his many promises to settle his bills, he never did so. As a family-owned moving company, we had the right to hold Mr. Kleinberg's household goods on the 5th move, when he again refused to pay his bill.

Since he literally stole our services on 4 prior occasions, we had every right to not deliver his shipment. We subsequently took Mr. Kleinberg to court and we were awarded judgment in clearing us of theft. The judge advised us that we could auction off Mr. Kleinberg's possessions if he did not pay us within 30 days of his judgment.

All of these occasions occurred in 2005, which begs the question as to why Mr. Kleinberg is making an issue of this now? As of this date he has still not settled his debt with us.
