What not to expect, honesty, integrity and human compassion from Statewide Van Lines. This company knows how to show you a on line estimate of what they will charge you but will double it with out any thought when they arrive. People do your home work life is short and please by pass this company and it's offerings. They will be the cheapest estimate so get ready for that and please do not fall for the dog and pony show from the BBB they are not any help in this matter. They will refer you to your contract that you so stupidly signed on line.
First Scott from Statewide Van Lines is really nice and it's not his fault as he work for a very fair man and will work with you as the first load of your family belongings are going down the road and won't be seen for 21 business days; people that is a day over 4 weeks for a eleven hour commute straight up I 75. After you first initial contact with Rudi a true American judging from his Middle Eastern accent that tells you that the quote that we gave you is actually not $3300 but $6600 and not because of the weight or not because we were over but because we have to wrap all the belonging and that comes out to being $3300 on top of the $3300. After discussing this with Rudi and settling on him not taking any breakable belongings that are fragile and we will move them ourselves, he settles by law they can only charge us 10% $330. After getting out of a four hour business and calling my wife to see how the move went, she starts to tell me what they consider fragile, garden tractor, three matress', four garage cabnets and refrigerator which are all listed on the inventory sheet that was submitted plus another half of a load that was also submitted and left behind.
After your first busy day at work you can't wait to call Rudi about the rest of your items that were not moved. He tells me for $5,000 he will pick up the rest and by now I have looked up flight, renting a UHaul and doing it myself about $5,000. See people this is a wear you down sceam were you think you got a deal at $5,000 but when you look back you should have went with the UHaul all along. A week later
the day comes for the second move and still guess what you still have not recieved your first truck yet because they broke down a axel the night of their first trucks commute, and they don't know when it will be up and running so here come the second truck at 10 p.m. at night wanting to charge you another $300 like I said this is a wear you down sceam and they know how to play it and now they have 5% of your salary for the first year. $5300 and no delivery as of today, the last my wife seen of our belonging was at 3:30 a.m. in SW Florida so if you see a Middle Eastern guy driving around on a glass lawn tractor will you please call me just shout out hey Rudi and if he turns to you think of me and my family.
