OLD SCHOOL MOVING & STORAGE CORP. Price Gauging at Pick-Up Dania Beach FL
*Author of original report: DO NOT HIRE OLD SCHOOL MOVING & STORAGE: Unethical Company
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Response
I scheduled Old School Moving & Storage Co. on 4-30-21 to move belongings from Clearwater, FL to New York, NY on 5-8-21. The quote was for $1800.00 with a $600.00 deposit, (paid on 4-30-21 with a ZELLE bank wire). The movers arrived on May 8 and demanded $3733 total. The man in charge was Irdek at 407-756-4268 and said the price increase from $1800 to $3733 (over 100% price gauging) was due to my total came to 450-500 cu ft and having different sized boxes
He didnt look over the quantity of individaul sized boxes, just said "I've been doing this for 15 years and I can eyeball the size." When I got the quote from Old School , they knew I had small-medium and large boxes for the quote. I had 12 additional small boxes at the time of pick up. Definately not 210 cubic feet more. (see below)
I had another truck company on 5-10-21 SEE my storage and measure the items and total cubic feet is 295. I have this in writing. My storage unit is 10X10 with approximately a little more than one quarter filled. No furniture, no appliances. No games, honest and reliable, no price guaging.
After investigating further, I have found this is common practice with Old School Moving & Storage Co. I asked them for my deposit tof $600.00 be refunded on May 8 after I declined the truckers to take the belongings for the additional cost.
"Kelly" the manager denied my request for a refund. The same day, Kelly called me back stating I can have a partial refund. I declined this stating I want my full deposit refunded. She then said she would speak with her manager and call me on May 10th by 3pm, which she did not, I called her.
On this date, May 10, she stated "she was reviewing the telephone calls and all info."WHAT INFO? WHAT TO REVIEW? They tried to over double the price and it is completely unacceptable. There is nothing to review. They price gauged by over double. I can understand an extra cost for anything realistic, but never over double the cost. I want them to be held accountable. I want my $600.00 deposit refunded.
