Ocean Moving and Storagemiami, pembroke, Florida United States of America
On 02/18/2010 at 6:18pm EST, I place an order for Binding and submitted a credit card deposit for moving from GA to CA on 03/05/2010. On 03/01/2010, I contacted Ocean Moving and Storage to re-confirm that everything was on-track with my scheduled move date of 03/05/2010=I was unable to reach this organization on 03/01/2010 because their phone was disconnected. Therefore, I felt like I had no choice but to schedule my move with another moving company because I was not certain whether this company was still in business after they took and accepted my deposit.
Next, after I booked my move date with another moving company on 03/02/2010--I re-dialed Ocean Moving and Storage at 866-954-2326; one of the Rep's answered the phone-- I informed her that I wanted to cancel my move date of 03/05/2010--the rep wanted to know why I wanted to cancel--I informed her that on 03/01/2010 I called their phone number (866-956-2326) 15 times and received a disconnection notification on each attempt. The rep informed me that I should have kept trying to reach them. I informed her that it's her organization responsibility to keep a working phone and that I want to cancel and to receive my deposit ($349) back. The rep informed me that they will not be able to give me my deposit back because I didn't give them 72 hr notice before the move date--I informed the rep that I did give ample time--I sent an email cancellation notification on 03/02/2010 at 5:18pm EST. The rep transferred me to the owner=ITAI (owner). The owner immediately became IRATE with me and said that he's not sure that I will get my $$ back and that he will let me know by 11am EST on 03/03/2010. On 03/03/2010 at 10:41am EST, I received a voicemail from Itai (owner)--he informed me that I will not get my deposit back because they were not able to find a replacement for my scheduled move date 03/05/2010.
Lastly, it doesn't matter why this organization's phone was disconnected(moved or just didn't pay the bill) I should not have been punished because their phone was disconnected.
I hope that Ocean Moving and Storage doesn't get away with scamming other consumers out of the hard earned money.
