Complaint Review: Safeguard Van Lines - Clifton NJ
Safeguard Van Lines Breach of contract, deceptive sales practices, extortion Clifton NJ
According to the Better Business Bureau, Safeguard Van Lines has received 24 complaints for scamming customers in the previous 12 months. They hook unsuspecting customers with low ball estimates offered online and over the phone, then pull bait-and-switch tactics to tack on hidden fees and ultimately extort thousands of dollars more from victims of their scam. They show up at the last minute and find excuses to raise the cost of the moving job by thousands of dollars on the spot -- when customers have few options to refuse at the last minute, with no time left to reserve a reputable moving service at a fair price.
They demand payment of the extra charges in cash so they cannot be pursued by credit card companies for cheating customers. Then, they will not honor their promised move-in delivery date, saying the fine print in their contract does not guarantee delivery by the date they promise. Our delivery showed up four weeks late, in a truck with one driver and zero movers. The driver demanded an extra $4,000 in cash to unload the truck and said that if we did not pay, we would never see our belongings again. Then, he left our belongings in the street, where some items were taken by people driving by. The company claims to pay only six cents on the dollar for any lost or damaged items, but don't don't expect a dime in reimbursement.
Read the fine print of of their contract, which prohibits victims from joining a class action lawsuit to make them pay full restitution. The New Jersey Attorney General's Office of Consumer Affairs, which investigates consumer complaints, wants to hear more customers' horror stories about Safeguard Van Lines in order to close down their operation and save you from being scammed.
