I called a local moving company, Father & Son, for my move to Florida. I spoke with Mark who led me to believe they were going to move my on guarenteed pick up and delivery dates for a quoted price of $1700.00. And YES, price was quoted without ever coming to my home!

Movers came and didn't have a single piece of paper work! They loaded the truck. To my surprise the truck was from All Pro Movers, not father and son movers. I had no idea what was going on at this point. After loading my belongings, the driver handed me an inventory sheet without names or addresses on it. I followed the driver outside in the dark and coppied the phone number (508-890-1100) from the outside of the truck.

I was sitting there 10 days later after several phone calls to Elijah Bowles and others when my stuff finnally arrived. Of course, I was quoted $1700.00 but an hour before delivery was informed that it was going to be $2967.00.

YES! I was told over the phone to pay the full amount 0f $2976.00 or my stuff was not coming off the truck.

The driver arrived and refused to give me weigh ticket. He verbally told me the weight. I told him I wanted a reweigh as there was 2 other peoples goods STUFFED into the same truck. He refused. OK, then I was handed several BLANK documents by the driver with highlighted parts for me to sign or my stuff wasn't coming off the truck. After a huge fight with the driver he threatened to dump my stuff onto the sidewalk!

It was hot and the day before Thanksgiving. I must have worn the driver out as I got him to agree that to save time he should give me the paper work to fill out while they unloaded. He obliged. This is where I fixed ALL Pro's wagon but good!

I ran to the complexes office and copied all the blank paper work in color showing the places they wanted me to sign. I noticed that someone at ALL PRO had put one thing on the bill of lading - that I was to pay $1911.00 (instead of the nearly $2900.00 told to me over the phone that morning).

Instead of signing the blank documents, I decided I would fill them out my self! Every place it asked for my signature, I wrote the words "did not receive until shipment was delivered." I filled every blank spot in with either a figure or a question mark so that noone could write anything in after it got back to their office. The best part was that I put on the Bill of lading amount paid in full! I don't know if that driver still works there?!?!

Upon inspection of belongings, NOT ONE thing wasn't damaged in either a small or big way. Several expespensive electronic items were missing and/or stolen. My king sized mattress had been in the truck for 10 days folded in half and torn. Where it was folded made a perminant lump in the middle of my bed.

I filed complaints with the board of transportation in Washington and another with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). I also filed a claim with ALL PRO VAN LINES for my damged and missing belongings. All of which have been a complete waste of time.

I am headed to Court (representing myself) to file a complaint in an attempt to get restitution for my damged and missing belongings. Among other things, I cannot wait to produce the bill of lading and other documents from ALL PRO to a judge and/or jury! I am not letting this go for myself and for all the others who have been ripped off by these movers.

I will continue to update my process through the court system on this site in hope it will help someone else.

ALL PRO VAN LINES INC UPDATE! SHIPPER BEWARE

AUTHOR: Joyce - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Tuesday, October 04, 2005
After further research for filing suit in against All Pro movers and Father & Son movers I would learn some very interesting things.

First, I found out that Father and son was an agent for ALL PRO VAN LINES, INC., up until a year ago. Father and son no longer wanted to business with these people. Well KOODOS TO FATHER AND SON! BUT! Not surprising at all, Mark Karbien worked for Father and son Movers and is the moron who gave me the estimate without ever coming to my home. He also refused to help me when ALL PRO failed to honor the contract and guarentees that were agreed upon for my move. When Father and son refused to work as an agent for ALL PRO anymore and is in the process of a law suit against them, Mark Karbien went on the payroll of ALL PRO!

Second, I learned that ALL PRO VAN LINES, INC., is now doing business as "ALL PRO MOVING AND STORAGE."

Third, I learned that in June 2005, effective August 2005, ALL PRO through their MC# that their license had been "INVOLUNTARILY REVOKED" for failure to maintin insurance.

Lastly, I spoke with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety administration who stated that ALL PRO is no longer a member in good standing with them!!

Dying for my day in Court. Representing myself in a case against ALL PRO is going to be the most entertaining thing I could ever imagine doing!

Will keep you posted on any updates.

I hope you win. I contacted Father and Son myself for a move, and this yahoo shows up at my door and claims to be only one in the moving world that won't rip me off.

After about 45 minutes of listening to him rant and rave about what a wonderful guy he is, I showed him the door. He tried to tell me that his estimates are NEVER wrong, and I would not pay ONE PENNY MORE for the move, yet in the same breath, he tells me that of course they will have to weigh the truck after it is loaded.

I asked why would they do this when the move is in-town, 2 miles from my current location. I asked him why he would drive 20 miles out of the way to have the truck weighed.

Of course, the idiot had no answer.
