Presto Logistics Horrible Business Practices calabasas California
I hired this company based on all the positive reviews. I now believe they are fictional. Once the company did the pickup they no longer returned my phone calls or e-mails. They were late delivering to me by 3 days. You can see foot prints on my boxes with several of them crushed from someones weight. So many items that were priceless to me are destroyed. They broke my motorcycles tail light and scratched it. They damaged two brand new bicycles by improperly storing them and I am still missing 2 pieces of furniture. I have been trying to contact them for 3 days and no one will return my calls. Absolutely disgusting company to do business with.

presto logistics rated evil in my books irving Texas
The website shows big shiny trucks with the logo on the side. What finally picked up my belongings was a hired independent contractor making a run from the West coast, and delivering my stuff after it was held somewhere for 25 days.  It had been loaded according to where it was going as I had to separate places 1/2 block from each other.  I was assured that it would only be moved one time-from the truck it was picked up on to the 18 wheeler it would be shipped on.  In fact, it was put in a warehouse so it was bounced around significantly then mixed up. When delivery was made, the driver showed up without any help.  When he obtained additional help from another town (two hours later) it was only one person.  I complained as it had taken four men all day to load it, so he hired a street person to assist from the neighborhood.  I ended up helping to move my stuff, not only because they were not going to finish but the driver was angry. When the company had put all the stuff from wherever it was stored back onto his truck, they had mixed it all up, so he was having to unload it all then reload what went down the street.   I stood and watched the driver try to wrench an antique armoire from Belgium onto its base and fracture the leg of it.  In transition, an antique desk was pulled apart at the seams and cracked.  Instead of moving a piece of equipment like I asked, they took it apart and lost the arm that suspends the light over the vacuum table, rendering it useless. They must have dropped a kiln from Germany as they broke the ceramic table inside.  Dishes, some antique, that were bubble-wrapped, were shattered and it appeared that they were thrown latterally by the way they broke. The supporting frame for my antique mission bed was lost. Each time I called, from the time the load left my state of origin until its final arrival, I was stonewalled, advised they would get back to me with an arrival date and told that my contract gavve them 24 days to deliver the furniture.   It was such a horrible exerience, I didn't even follow through with the claims procedure.  I did not purchase additional insurance based on the original assurance that my stuff would only be moved once, so my relief would have been pennies per pound with their option to take possesion of anything they paid on. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!

Presto Logistics Moving Company Calabasas, Ca Nationwide
- contracted with Presto Logistics in Dec2013, payment by credit card over phone. pickup for 26Feb2014 - we packed all household goods. there were no appliances at all, nor big items like couches, tables, or any beds. lived in a 1 bdrm duplex with a small office. gave complete inventory to representative, henry, & he provided the estimated cubic inches we would have, and cubic inches is how the total cost is derived. - contracted also, for one harley davidson motorcycle. was informed & assured that only professional & knowledgeable movers would handle the motorcycle. - movers arrived on time. so far, so good. but, on arrival, had to pay 50% of the amount. this time, my choices were cash, or credit card with a 3% credit card fee additional. we paid cash. the additional 3% fee was never discussed beforehand. - presto's estimate of cubic inches was 1/2 of actual, so, our cost just doubled. in an attempt to lower costs from full service movers (north american, atlas, united, etc), this just put us over their costs. - packing our self boxed inventory into the van went ok. my wife then noticed a mover taking a power drill to her harley. he said the windshield needed to be removed & he knew what he was doing. she immediately sent me out, & I found the mover attempting to remove the front fork with his power drill. I removed the windshield in 5 seconds by just pulling it out. after this, we watched the motorcycle loading. once in the van, the same mover took a large ratchet strap & proceeded to ratchet down the harley into the sidewall of the van. before I could stop him, he had totally bent the license plate & frame, put a huge gouge in the tank, and destroyed the kick/jiffy stand spring mechanism. i called henry about this & he assured me no more problems would arise as they drove back to the DFW area. - we were told all along, that 3 days minimum to deliver, but that 5 days should be no problem. - until delivery, Presto refused to provide any information, except that we would be notified when our goods are re-loaded onto a van for shipment out of DFW. - after 2 weeks, we started presistently calling Presto for any information. same response, nothing. plus, no one was concerned that it had been over 2 weeks, and no one had contacted us. the 3rd week was the same. finally, on day 30, we received shipping information & the driver called, he was already close to us. upon the arrival of the moving van, even the driver could not believe the shoddy customer support we received. however, he said it was company policy that he could not even open the van door until he had all the funds in his hand, in cash. so, 3 different types of payment required throughout the entire process. we paid him in cash, & our household goods were finally delivered. - would never, ever, recommend presto logistics to anyone, based on our personal experience.

Presto Logistics Presto Moving Serious lack of integrity, over-charged and lied Calabasas California
I can not recommend Presto Logistics. Please learn from my mistake of not being more skeptical and scrutinizing. While they did do a competent and professional job on the actual move, the experience of doing business with them was ultimately profoundly negative for me. The most significant point being that the move ultimately cost me $900 more than the quote. What I suspect, but can not prove, is that I was intentionally quoted low in order to get my business, and they fully expected to charge me significantly more. For your consideration:  ** Unlike most people moving, I was not moving from a home or office and in any way estimating the amount of items to move. My items were in a storage unit whose exact dimensions I gave to John. John said that based on all his years in the business, he would provide me a worst case scenario quote. He said that that the amount of the quote would be the most I could expect to pay. His movers would be able to fit the items in even smaller than I could. And yet, when the movers showed up on the day, I was told that my items were taking up more room than they were supposed to (remember I gave the exact dimensions) and that they were going to have to charge me extra for the extra space. (Mea culpa: I did not catch that the square footage in the quote was NOT what John and I discussed, so legally they are covered.) $385 charge. **When I was discussing the quote with John and I balked at the price, he said he needed to consult his colleague. He did not successfully put me on hold and I overheard part of their conversation. Abe told John a number about $800 more than what John came back on the phone and told me. At the time, I thought, John was working hard to give me a good deal. What I think now is that they always intended to get that amount of money and intentionally told me the lower amount to get my business. ***My friends move turned out to be about $900 more than his quote, too. ***When they showed up to move my friend, they started shrink wrapping his furniture to protect it. Thats fine, but they never once mentioned that they were going to do that, and they charged my friend a significant amount of money for this service. Legally, there is a clause saying they will charge you for additional packing, so again, theyre covered. However, when my friend told me about this, I called John and asked about the shrink wrapping business and if that was included in the $250 of free packing materials he had offered me to get my business. He said, not to worry and that I would only have to pay for extra packing if I was moving a flat screen TV or China cabinet or the like. I was not. The reality:  The charged me $614 for packing materials and to be nice gave me $120 credit. Again, at no point did John mention anything about the shrink wrap that they will charge you for. They only tell you that the moving blankets are included. **Before my move, I called John to ask if they could combine my move with my friends move and make a deal. I called them specifically because they were moving my friend. He said that there was just no way they could do something like that. After I called to question all these extra charges, John tried to mollify me by telling me what a great VIP move they were doing for me because they were combining my move with my friends (which they denied they could do) and giving me next day delivery (which I neither requested nor particularly wanted.) **I had to call them to find out if they were going to show up for my move. They said they would have called the day before to confirm that they would be there. For a cross country move, I needed to know if they were showing up so I could make arrangements with someone else if they werent. **They demand that you pay them in cash or postal money order. After they had my possessions, I got several phone calls about making sure that I knew how much money they were charging me and that I would have cash for them. Perfectly within their rights, but I tell you, it felt like a shake down. Also, I am not comfortable walking around with several thousand dollars in cash for one, and handing it over to some stranger for two. So you have to buy postal money orders to pay them. So, essentially, you have to spend  even more money to pay them. And you will do it because they have your things. They get away with this because: --By the time they show up, you are in the desperate hassle of moving, and probably dont want to start over. --They have a 2 day notice clause for cancellation, so even if you were willing to start over with a different company, you will have to pay them to go away. --The guys who do the actual moving are courteous and professional, we all like to think of ourselves as nice people and are unlikely to confront those guys. --You will probably believe it is your fault they have to charge you so much because you have so much stuff and you dont know how to pack.

Presto Logistics Presto Movers WORST MOVING COMPANY EVER. AWFUL BUSINESS PRACTICES CALABASAS California
THE WORST MOVING COMPANY!!I don't even know where to start.  I've already read a few of the horrible reviews for this company and I'm pretty much in agreement with the majority of what's been said, so I'll try to keep this one short.I was already very weary of using Presto Logistics because of the reviews, but I decided to give them a shot any, hoping that it was just part of the deal... usually only unhappy people write reviews.  BUT... unfortunately I learned the hard way that these people will tell you whatever they think you want to hear to earn your business.. but follow up on those promises is a complete joke.  Once they picked up our stuff (actual movers were great, by the way) I learned very quickly that these people had no concern for the amount of time it would take to get them on the road.  After more than 2 weeks of trying to get a hold of the person (RYAN) who sold me on this company, I was finally told that the stuff was on it's way from Los Angeles to WA.  Let me be clear.. RYAN never once returned a call after they had our money and belongings.  I was irate at the amount of time it took to even get on the road!  He originally told me 10 days was typically the longest it would take to get everything to WA.  After 2.5 weeks of waiting for ANY type of answer from these people, DANIELLE (Supposedly the head of customer service - what a joke) told me the stuff was loaded and on it's way.  It wasn't until 3 days later that I received a call from dispatch letting me know my stuff was being loaded and would leave in the next couple days.  WHAT!!!???  I was already told it was on it's way!  Once again.... nobody would return my calls.They told me to read the contract - which was about 10 pages - to see that they legally had up to 21 BUSINESS days to deliver.  Funny, considering that they came on a Sunday to pick everything up.  I assumed they worked every day.  I was able to find the part that stated the time frame... which was on the BACK of one of the pages in small writing.  Also funny, considering they had me sign and initial in about 20 different areas... why was THIS section left out of those areas explained to me and I initialed... Lovely how they will tell you one thing and hide the truth!I have worked managing apartment buildings for 12 years and I let EVERYONE who is about to move know NOT TO USE PRESTO LOGISTICS!!!  Which is sort of sad for them... I could have easily referred 10 customers per month to them had they been good at what they do. They may be one of the least expensive... but believe me, you barely even get what you pay for with these idiots.  If you have ANY questions or concerns about using them for your move... please feel free to contact me and I'll be happy to elaborate on my experience.I'm not even going to get into what happened upon arrival with our stuff.  Read other reviews and you'll pretty much get the idea.GOOD LUCK and save yourself a lot of stress and anger by using a different mover... I doubt anyone could be worse to deal with.

Presto Logistics Presto has hired criminals to unload me. Calabasas California
I have hired Presto Logistics to move me from Oklahoma to Arizona in April of 2014. Unfortunately, I have discovered that the  owner of the company they hired locally, here in Phoenix, to unload me was arrested in December 2013 for burglary, stolen property and drug use. I have become suspicious of these people as they were drinking beer on the job and using bad language while working. The f-word was present nearly in every conversation line between them. Since the owner has left his business card with me I have googled him and found all this information on my own. My jaw just dropped and I was unable to sleep until I have installed an alarm system in my house. In addition, I catch them shaving a guitar in the trash box perhaps with the intent to take it later. They were very curious to know my husband profession and other things about our things if they were real or just copies. One of the guy working with this man told me that he knew someone that had a TV just like mine and got stolen From his house. What a story !!!! The owner also told me that he want me to contract him out in order to finish all the job since it was late and he was unable to finish what I have already paid Presto Logistics for. My furniture was not put together and was just stored with my boxes. I have contacted Presto Logistics to tell them about my situation but they did not take the matter serious. They promised to help me with promotions for an alarm system but never even called me again. Even the customer service representative from Presto did nothing to help in any way other than telling me that this do not happened before. Since then, I installed an alarm system in the house and I now live in fear of being robbed. I also have to pay someone else to help me to put my furniture together. Shame on you, Presto !!!! I have paid $ 9,103.40 for this move but what I am paying emotionally now has no price!!!!! Please help me to make sure this will not happened to anyone else.

Presto Logistics Lost my property during move and very poor customer service Internet
Company showed up 4 hours late to pick up items after promising a firm time. Loaders claimed to have used over $200 worth of supplies (mostly tape when most of my boxes were already taped) then they demanded cash to buy gas for their next pickup. I was promised a date range for delivery but my items were delivered a week later outside of that max date by a very unprofessional and impatient driver who attempted to give me some other people's property. Some very important items were lost and it's been over 2 months of trying to go through the chain of command at the company but very difficult to get a call back. Basically non existent customer service. I do not feel that the company is interested in finding my items. I see some rebuttals here and it looks like they are more focusing on fixing their reputation and nothing to do with fixing customer complaints.

Presto Auto Loans Fraud, scammers, corrupt business practices. These people MUST be stopped!!! Phoenix Arizona
I was going through some hard times and found myself in dire straights. After being berated, lectured, and humilated I received an auto title loan from Presto Auto Loans for $3,000. I have been making regular payment per the agreement that I signed and sending in the payment coupons from the payment booklet that I was given. Upon calling to receive my final payement amount which is due 4/20/09 I was informed that I owed in excess of $3,000.!!! Imagine my shock and horror? My original loan was for $3,000. of which I had paid in excess of $5,000 for! When I questioned this amount I was told that due to paperwork that I failed to send them upon one request was not received in 11/07 they added $1,000 to my orginal loan and that my monthly oayment over the last 16 months should have been higher. I never signed any papers reflecting this change. They never even informed me of this change! They claim to have sent me a letter (not registered) which I never received. The man told me that it was simply my word against theirs. If that isn't shady I don't know what is! I told him that they had no problem calling me if a payment was late but they could not call me to inform me that they changed the terms of my loan!!! Unacceptable! I even made sure that I submitted a change of address with them when I moved in October of 2008. I have not changed jobs. I need help with this!!!! I have a couple of feelers out with some lawyers but am getting nervous! Any and all help would be very much apreciated. I don't know where to go from here! Susan Phoenix, ArizonaU.S.A.

Presto Logistics Misleading and Deceptive Business Practice Calabasas California
 Presto Logistics moved me from Canton, GA to Newbury Park, CA in June 2013. Presto Logistic Customer Representative made false statements in regards to the loss and damage coverage included in the Bill of Lading for my move. Presto Logistic included packing charges of $1,200 for my move. These charges included the professional packing of my big screen television, a framed football jersey, a framed autographed guitar, and various large pictures. I was told that $150 of the $1200 packing charges was to have my big screen television professionally wrapped by Presto Logistics. I was told during the packing of the television that if it was damaged it would be replaced. I was also told on the day of delivery when it was unpacked and discovered to have been damaged that Presto Logistics would be replacing my television because I paid the fee to have it professionally packed. Based on following Presto Logistics claim procedure none of the statements made by Presto Logistic employees was truthful. The claim company, Moving Claims.Net told me I am only entitled to $88 for my losses and damages from the move. It is clear that none of the information provided by anyone at Presto Logistics was truthful or valid. I was deliberately misled by Presto Logistic staff and management about the loss and damage coverage that was in place for my move. Had it been clearly explained to me that if my big screen television was damaged I would be getting $0.60 per pound of the weight of the television I would have asked for more coverage. To charge a customer $150 to professionally pack a television, tell them the fee insured that if it was damaged it would be replaced, and then to offer $88 as compensation is criminal. Presto Logistics will not return my phone calls so based on this unfair business practice I have submitted a claim with the Better Business Bureau in the hopes of resolving this issue in a fair and equitable manner.

BE VERY CAREFUL AND PLEASE READ. HE WILL RIP YOU OFF. The man's name is David Fimbres. This guys has his act down to a T. He will tell you that everyone else sells their moving contracts but he won't. He will show you photos of his trucks and tell you that no one else will be involved. We hired him even though he was over $1,200 over the next bidder because we believed him. Like I said he sells it very well. He came and picked up the boxes and asked for half of the cost - cash - in advance. We gave him the money. We were moving from L.A. to Spokane. He said it would be maximum of three weeks.   Over a month later and after numerous calls, a completely different truck showed up from a different company. He had sold them the contract, exactly what he tells you he doesn't do. They of course asked for the other half of the money (in cash) immediately before they would unload the stuff. Almost every box was broken. Part of the agreement was to put the bed together upon arrival. None of what was promised happened. The people that delivered it said their contract was with him and not with us and he was not told he had to do anything and he also is not responsible for broken dishes and furniture. As far as this new guy was concerned the damage was done on Mr, Fimbres' truck. We called Mr. Fimbres, and you guessed it, he never called us back. This company is his. The people that answer the phone are an answering service. He will paint a picture that he is running a legitimate company. It is all a front. Do not buy into his act. We did and paid the price. He also has put BBB certified on his card. Yet another lie. I called BBB and they have had nothing but complaints about him. The man is a charlatan. Be aware. Be very aware.

PRESTO AUTO LOANS, PARK AND PAWN In November CORRUPT COMPANY USERY THIEVERY IMMORAL RIPOFF scam dirt bags They're no better than LOAN SHARKS. Phoenix Arizona
I borrowed money against my vehicle, which by the way was in excellent condition and had very low miles. My contract read May 2002 to May 2003 with a final balloon payment for June 2003. Because the loan was not ammortized the final payment in June could be more or less than the regular monthly payment of $350. I had a wonderful job and had no problem paying this back. My family was having a rough time and this was the only way I could get enough money to help out. I didn't like having a lien placed on my car, but I had no doubt things would be okay. Well, was I wrong. I had to make an emergent move from AZ to PA in November 2002. I had been paying on a regular basis without a problem from May until I moved. Prior to this move, my car had gone in for a simple oil change and the jerks who did the oil change messed up the transmission and gave me a serious oil leak. The car would never be the same. I couldn't drive it at all after this. It had a loud whine, and wouldn't shift correctly and the oil wouldn't stop leaking out. I had to leave the car in Arizona to be disposed of at a junk yard, because I didn't know what else to do with it. I couldn't afford to bring it back to PA and it was no longer running. When I got to PA I couldn't find a job. Eight months have gone by and I still don't have one. I live in a very depressed area where there is absolutely no employment whatsoever. Several months went by and I finally spoke with Presto. They wanted me to commit to a specific amount each month. I agreed too soon and told them I wouldn't be able to do it, but I would be getting some help to send in several months' payments to catch up. In May I sent $1500 which paid me to and including April, and part of May 2003. I felt good. I had actually paid some into the month of May, but owing $275. I thought this is great. Now I only owe $275. plus June's balloon payment. Still not working, I couldn't send in any money. This company has harassed me, hounded me, and threatened me with a felony conviction because I disposed of the car. They wanted me to file a police report in Arizona that the car was stolen. I knew better, because I could be in bigger trouble for filing a false police report. The car wasn't stolen. I left with an acquaintance of someone I met casually who had offered to hold it for me or dispose of it because it was not running. The title still has the lien on it, and the company is having a fit because I didn't turn the car over to them. One person in particular is giving me the hard time -- the collector for the company. I have a payment booklet from May 2002 to May 2003 and one extra for June. He is now telling me that I owe a June payment of $350, and a payment for July, and that my current balance is $1170. If I only owed $275 from May and a balloon payment from June, how can this be. If he had been adding interest to this loan all along, $1500 would only have paid me until February or March at the least. As it was I thought I was only paid to and including April. When he told me I was paid to part of May, I was really pleased to say the least. He has wanted the car for himself since we initially spoke to make arrangements for payment way back in Feb/March. I think he is fudging paperwork so that it is so hard for me to pay the loan back that I'll give up and refuse to pay anything. I stayed in touch with this guy and he never once gave me credit for showing good faith in sending such a large amount in at one time. He's a real PR. When he wanted me to file the police report, he said he would buy the car for himself. So, I think we all know now what he really wanted. He's wanted the car from the beginning, and not knowing where it is is just killing him. I have a lawyer and I told him this. He had the nerve to say that he hoped I wasn't spending money on a lawyer when those funds were better sent to him for my balance. This is certainly none of his business anyway. I don't think he believes I have an attorney. He thinks I'm lying about it all. I've told my lawyer everything and I've sent him my contract information, etc. This guy is a thief and will go to any length to cheat me after I've shown an effort to pay this account off, but he knows that by raising the amount constantly, it will make it virtually impossible for me to ever get caught up, so he continues to have a reason to harass me. I always intended to pay this loan whether I had the car in my possession or not. Not everyone would be that honest, but he doesn't believe anything I say. Don't ever make the mistake I made and get caught up with such a crooked outfit. They're no better than LOAN SHARKS. Can anyone offer me a solution? Dinah Hillside, South DakotaU.S.A.

Presto Logistics Deceitfully under-estimated moving costs; wreaked havoc and destruction on my household goods! Calabasas California
Presto Logistics negligently and deliberately underestimated the shipment of our household goods from Ventura, CA to Portland, OR.  They were understaffed, inexperienced and deceitful.  It took them over 15 hours to load my stuff.  The original cu.ft. estimate was $6,300 for 2000 cu.ft.  Actual cost $10,395 for 3300 cu.ft.  Packing/material estimate $450, actual was $4,328.  Presto's delivery driver refused to drive his 18-wheeler through my 16' overly wide farm-gate.  They wanted $1400 for a smaller rental truck.  When I objected, they tried to leave with my stuff but I stood in front of their truck and called 911.  Police kind of settled it but Presto still ripped me off.  I got the rental truck for $66.  It took many hours and several shuttles to unload Presto's truck.  After everything was at my house, Presto boss said they'd be back at 9 am to re-assemble the things they originally disassemble.  That was the last I've seen of them.  Presto head guys were very rude.  And from the amount of damaged and broken goods, must have thrown the boxes marked fragile.  Many unique art pieces were damaged beyond repair and it is going to cost a lot to have the repairable items fixed.Presto Logistics departed with Shipment from Ventura location on May 21, at about 12:30 AM.  About noon, May 21, 2013, I discovered that Carrier neglected to pick up contents of upstairs bathroom.  I immediately called and informed Presto of the oversight.  Presto assured me that they would pick up and ship the items immediately.  As of June 26, 2013, despite my repeated requests, Presto has not delivered missing items.  After June 11, 2013, Presto Logistics has not returned my calls.  Between what they didn't pick up and what is missing in my unloaded Shipment:  One, green silk, vintage Persian rug, 5'x8', irreplaceable - $4,000 irreplaceable; Balance beam scale - $350 replacement value; Medium-size box of toiletries - $150 replacement value; Alberto Giacometti-style table lamp with shade - $500 replacement value.  One, red, 7'x9', vintage Turkish rug - $5,000 irreplaceable; Canvas tool kit with tools - $300 replacement value; 4 slats for queen size mattress/box spring set - $25 replacement value.  Missing Total: $10,300.  TOTAL LOSSES FROM DAMAGES AND/OR MISSING ITEMS = $65,287.00

Presto Logistics John Miller, Carlos Hernandez, Ryan Rosendorff,Benjamin Vogel Bad Business Practices, Bait and Switch, Unethical, Unproffessional, Negligent calabasas California
Our supposed “Good Faith Estimate” of $1,942.00 turned into $3,557.00 move! We chose Presto based on your companies statement, “We believe that it is our responsibility to service the customer first, last, and always; maintaining intelligent business practices is the recipe for our continued success. Safety, Integrity, Service is our motto, and it’s what we believe are the three most important values that set our company apart from the rest.” Unfortunately, this was not our experience for our long-distance move with Presto. 1.Estimate: When we booked our move originally we were quoted 371cf total and on the day of pick-up were charged for 625cf total -- a 254cf difference for a one-bedroom 600 square foot apartment, resulting in an additional $1,244.60. Even though 95% of all of the measurements were provided prior to pick-up so that this exact situation would not happen. 2.Packing Materials: Upon arrival, quoted $175.00 for crating 5 items, which we agreed to, but after the move was complete and everything was loaded we were again presented the Packing Materials List and added in several more items for a total of $300.00. Also charged for packing materials not used. Even though we paid $510.00 for packing materials we still suffered $4,000.00+ in damage to our furniture. 3.Negligence: We have very expensive and fragile furniture and expressed our concerns several times with the Presto employees regarding using the stairs instead of the elevator, which they refused to do. The elevator was located right down the hallway and would have only taken a few extra minutes to use. They stated that it would take too long and had another job to get to. Instead, they negligently loaded all of the boxes and some of the fragile furniture on dollies and dragged it down each step instead of carrying the items down the stairs. As a result, we had several broken items in the boxes and damage to our furniture. As such, we had to pay a $250 deductible. 4. Illegal Surcharge: we were charged a credit card surcharge of 3.5% and according to California Civil Code section 1748.1, a surcharge may not be added when you elect to use a credit card instead of paying by cash.  5. Delivery: Our furniture was delivered a day earlier then the first available date that we provided. We were driving across country and had to drive two 15 hour days in order to make it to Florida in time because they arrived a day earlier. 6. Several broken items in boxes and a missing box with expensive household goods. 7. This company does not care and refers your calim to a third party company. Do not use this moving company!

Presto Logistics Moving Company Seriously unethtical business practices and non stop attempted extortion and overbilling Calabasas California
This has taken me awhile to write because the experience was SO awful in every way that I just didn't want to think about it anymore...  I have no hesitation in saying I would never recommend Presto Logistics to anyone.  Be aware that the practices used by this company are unethical and it will be a continuous battle of extortion and shady tactics.   I have a lot to say and can't put it all here, but am happy to answer questions.  I think customers should know how this is going to work out for them.  Presto was NOT the cheapest quote I got, but I really fell for the trustworthiness of the salesperson.  They are good...and they will lie outright to you and once you do have problems will talk down to you and over you.  I was told very specifically I should take some furniture (spec a large cabinet) because I could pack INSIDE of it.  I asked VERY specific questions about this and confirmed it on email even.  I spent A LOT of time carefully packing according to the specifications I was given.  When the movers came to pick up, they were already frustrated and we argued over the fact that what I packed in the furniture was not heavy...the office and my salesperson offered me a discount on their packing services and materials  -specifically why I asked all the questions I did...I very clearly told him this was the exact sort of thing I did NOT want to encounter and why I was swayed by the sales talk.  It was an awful experience with the movers until we started communicating and I came to understand it wasn't about the weight....the problem was that anything had been packed inside AT ALL.  I called Ryan (salesperson) back about this and spoke with his boss too.  Both of them with no interest in making this right, but so sure that now that half my things were out on the street ...I wouldn't let them go.  Ryan asked me well, what are you going to do now ...your things are already outside...UNBELIEVABLE.   It was exhausting and upsetting.  I called Ryan at the office a few days later and said I really just expected the delivery to play out in a different way.  It didn't.  The drivers called to say they were close by and then within a few minutes...they couldn't get to me and would have to shuttle.  1/2 block from me is construction with huge equipment so I just walked over and asked them if there was a problem with moving a tractor trailer through...NO.  I also looked on google maps and saw the route they should have taken...the highway until they were around the corner....instead they got off somewhere in mid-city and were now having to navigate through town.  I don't know what the logistics part stands for , but in my job I map out my route prior to a job.  They have an office for this...I could see it clearly on google maps...why couldn't they.  My things were damaged and boxes looked like they had been through a crusher...with things literally dragging outside of them ( have pictures of this...it's almost comical how absurdly torn up these things were.  Of course that meant a lot of broken/crushed and missing things.  There is no furniture that wasn't completely scratched and dinged.  The movers seemed surprised even by the condition of the boxes and cabinets.  My file cabinets were so damaged I've had to pay someone to pry them open...now useless.  I have a very large (and heavy) armoir /cabinet.  I had been sold on bringing it by the salesperson and promised everything would go where I wanted it on delivery.  Well the large cabinet that was to go upstairs...they couldn't do it.  I realized it was going to even be dangerous to them as the guys just didn't seem strong enough or have the tools that would have helped them.  I know it can be done because I just hired two guys that deliver furniture and paid them 250 to do it.  I asked presto to split this cost with me....and following the move, I wrote to Abe (the owner) and did not even get a response.    Honestly, I don't think it is the labor...these guys are just trying to work, but the management and sales are beyond dishonest and just slimy with their business practices.    At this point, I will NEVER move all my things again and I will not trust another company.  I am sure there are some honest ones out there, but with these deliberately deceptive practices, how would you know?  If I were in this industry, using honest practices with my customers I would look for some sort of regulation that protected consumers from these practices.  It is an awful experience to be stuck with all of your things on a truck and be held hostage to unfair demands and extortion.  I just feel a little more disappointed in society when I run across people like this…that’s really a shame.

This company simply seeks out your email addresses to SELL to spammers. They also said they were to run a credit check but they were only looking for repossessions. I told them I had a lot of hospital bills on my credit report and that is all. They said they didn't care about that, only wanted to know if I had repo's. Come to find out they just wanted my information so they could SELL it. Do not trust this company. They were dishonest and they sell your information.
