Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Please, take a little time to read this, Global express van lines, is  and always will be a SCAM company, check them out on movingscam or other rip off websites, they have a long history of ripping people off.

 In fact, the owner(josh socher) is the one who scams everyone.  He tells his employees to tell there customers EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING they want to hear, this way he will eventually charge there first deposit.  Which is how him and the whole staff get paid, they are scammers, and they take the deposit, and then never call you again.  And then on your actual move day, 3 Foreigners get to your house, and they barely speak a lick of English.  They don't know about what they are and aren't taking, and that right there is the beginning of the nightmare.

When they came to my house, they loaded the truck full, and then told me that my price is now $18,590!!!! do you know what I booked my job at when I paid the deposit?  $8,000.  $8,000, can you imagine getting all your belongings put on SOME STRANGER'S truck(who mind you had NO LOGO, NO DECAL, WAS JUST A BLANK WHITE TRUCK) and then they show me paperwork(with all my belongings in there possession) that said $18,590!?!?!?!? The price hadn't just doubled, they added a straight $10,590 on top of my $8,000(which was all I pretty much had to pay for this).

So what do you think I did?  I lost all my stuff, that's right, we're still fighting them to get it back at a lower price, and they are starting to haggle, but to be honest, my stuff is worth much more then 20K i just don't have the money to pay it back,, PLEASE BUYERS BEWARE, JOSH SOCHER, AND HIS CREW WILL TELL YOU ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO HEAR JUST TO GET YOUR DEPOSIT!!! PLEASE DON'T USE THIS COMPANY, UNLESS YOU WANT TO END UP LIKE ME, IN A HOUSE THAT IS COMPLETELY EMPTY, B/C THESE ***** WON'T DELIVER FOR THE PRICE THEY TOLD ME UPFRONT!

AUTHOR: GOV. OFFICIAL - (United States of America)

Moved from FL to IL. Global made it very stressful for me. Where do I start . . . Salesman(josh socher) was hard to reach. That should have been my first clue to run.  I requested May 15th move day with 16th as backup. They called day before saying it would be the 16th, which was fine. Then I get a call the eve of the 15th saying they will be there that night btwn 7 & 8pm. Despite my pleas for them not to come until the next day, the truck showed up at 8:45PM & stayed until midnight.  It was a small truck, so they explained that my stuff would be repacked onto the big truck later.  Oh great! More chances for it to get dropped and damaged.  The contract does state they charge for packing materials, but since all my stuff was packed, I didn't think it would apply to me.  I was told they would wrap furniture, but it wasn't explained that I would be charged for tape and also a LABOR FEE for the time it takes them to tape and wrap items. They also found an excuse to crack out a few boxes and charge me for those too.  It ended up being $250 additional! 

Now the real fun starts. . .I get a call the day before delivery saying Global lost my check because somebody's purse was stolen.  Global wanted the entire amount in cash on delivery.  They agreed to pay the stop payment fee but when I logged into my account, my check had ALREADY CLEARED!   I tried calling them back and also tried to reach josh socher who i found out is the owner, not just my salesman, so therefore they scammed me the whole way.  he even put me on hold to ask "the manager" for a discount, and now HE IS THE ACTUAL OWNER, and I couldn't even get HIM OR ANYONE ELSE FOR THAT MATTER on the line.  They finally called me and agreed that my check wasn't included in the ones "stolen".   I asked him to please make sure the driver knew my check wasn't lost so I wouldn't have any problems with delivery and he said he already informed the driver.  About an hour later the driver called and said my amount due had gone up.  Nobody told him!  It was finally worked out and my stuff was delivered . . .a day late  . . . because the job ahead of mine had 5x more furniture than they listed and it took more time. (thats what they told me).  In the end my furniture was picked up and delivered.  There were a few scraps and dings on some items, but I guess thats to be expected.  I didn't like how stressful Global made this for me, changing the pickup time twice and coming so late in the evening telling me I didn't have a choice because they had other jobs.  I expected to be charged for actual weight, but the additional LABOR charges I wasn't expecting, but felt what could I do now, I needed to get moved & they knew it. 

They ripped me off, and don't think for 2 seconds they wouldn't rip you off either.  JOSH SOCHER DOESN'T CARE ABOUT ANYTHING EXCEPT TAKING YOUR DEPOSIT! THAT IS IT. and once they put you on the truck, they know at that point you are stuck.  The whole story about losing my check brought this experience full circle & seemed made up and then delivery was also a day late.  Never again! NEVER AGAIN, YOU WILL GO DOWN GLOBAL, YOU WILL GO DOWN, IDK WHY SOMEONE WOULD REBUTTLE, IM SURE THE ABOVE PERSON ALSO GOT SCAMMED! JUST LIKE ME!

AUTHOR: josh socher - (USA)

I am the owner Joshua Socher who "this ex-employee is trying to exploit.The persom who wrote this e-mail real name is JOSHUA HABER he is so sketchy he lies about his last name and goes by the name JOSHUA  THOMAS.He was fired from our company a month ago after a long investigation found he was stealing not only from the company but his own co-employees.Since he has been fired he beoke into our operating system/e-mails and told all our customers we were going out of buisness and to call there credi card company's to dispute the charge if they ever want to see there money.He then broke into private e-mails and sent our customers disgusting e-mail that i can't repeat on this site 'making it seam that the person'e salesperson was sending it.He since has an fraud investigation ensuing right now and being sued for causing over $25,000 of damage to our company.We caught him also signing customers orders and submitting them for payment.He now works foe 3-4 broker companies so BEWARE!!! All moving companies have blackballed him and thats why he is working with brkers currently the one company we know hes with (this has been confirmed and if you look them up you will see there reviews are fake (josh Haber) aka joshua thomas since all the reviews were written in the last 10 days and the company has been in buisness for 8 yrs and they also are on this site the name is ASAP RELOCATION SERVICES INC.So if you get a call from a Joshua Haber don't walk run away he is the CROOK (and we have 3 customers who will be testifying against him saying he called them as "the General manager of the cpmpany" saying we were going out of buisness beware!!!!!
