*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Rebuttal to Claim of Moving Scam
quoting 629, they arrived at my place and said that it would actually
be roughly $1100, for a 1 bedroom apartment. I had no alternative, as my lease
had expired, so I had to use them to move that day. I had already paid
$100 deposit and a couple of hundred dollars in pre-ordered moving
materials that were to be credited back to my account.
I even shortened the original move time by changing the unload
destination to my brother's house, which is much closer than my
original unload destination. So, the fee actually would have been much higher if I hadn't changed locations.
During the unloading, the head of the moving crew became upset with
my brother, who was helping to move, and the moving crew threatened to
LEAVE WITH MY PERSONAL PROPERTY STILL INSIDE THE TRUCK.
I had to
call the head of the company (Eli) and the original sales rep (Sarit)
during the middle of my move to get them to convince the crew not to
leave with half of my stuff. The distraction too about a half hour to
resolve, which I also had to pay for.
