*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Master Movers LLC
*General Comment: Do you have the right company??
*UPDATE Employee: False Information
People do your homework!!!! I Just barely avoided a
major fraudulent network of household goods movers and they can fool you too
just as they have fooled many others! I am so thankful that someone
showed me the light today and helped me avoid a huge pitfall in the form of
I have a few nice antique pieces to move to New York and in getting my pricing quotes together I was first contacted by a company called Reliable Van Lines. I liked everything they had to say. The salesman represented their company well and was very polite. I gave him $200 from my credit card to hold the move for me in a few days.
When I received their paperwork in my e-mail the paperwork said something about a Chicago Moving Systems. I was not born yesterday so I got suspicious and decided to speak to a few other movers. The others all informed me of how to do some snooping online. When I did my research what I found was enormous amounts of individual bits of information linking Reliable Van Lines, the company for whom I had given my credit card number, to a host of other companies all known for seedy business practices. In fact much of the information I found suggests this to be the same company. I even found some information on this very ripoff report website.
I got very worried and I am now not able to get a hold of neither of the men I spoke with at Reliable Van Lines. Their names were Dan and Max.
The first thing I did was searched their phone number and then got the results. Here is what came up.
Compare the contact phone numbers from these companies.
I then did some research using the website www.movingscam.com
This came up which lead me to a whole host of other helpful information which linked the companies together.
Now compare these addresses listed on these links below.
It made me curious to enough to google search the address of 7007 N. Austin Ave. in Niles, IL and I found the results to be interesting.
This Chicago Movers company also shares the address.
Their website is http://1mastermovers.com/
Chicago Movers also goes by Master Movers and just like the rest shares a terrible reputation as can be seen on the link below.
These guys are all the same company.
ASAP Van Lines is Chase Relocation, who is Chicago Moving Systems, who is AMPM Moving (formerly ASAP of Texas), who also is the unlicensed broker Reliable Van Lines, who is also Chicago Movers (who goes by Master Movers).
I will be contacting my credit card company to try and get my money back and then I will be canceling my account.
