Could not be more disappointed with this company and how they handle business. I don't usually write reviews for things online, but I feel this one could help someone avoid getting scammed by this company.
My husband and I were shopping around online for good moving companies that would handle our stuff carefully while not being extremely expensive. This was not our first rodeo with moving across country, but was out first time going about finding a company on our own.
We were initially excited about our quote of $1,600 to move our 2 bedroom apartment from Chicago to South Carolina, and we event sent them the photos that they asked for of our stuff to estimate the accurate square footage of what would be used on the truck. Well, when the movers showed up on moving day, there were 4 people who quickly loaded all of our stuff onto a truck, and told us after the fact that it would be $4500. We were completely taken of guard by the total, but tipped them well for their had work. They even tried to haggle a better tip if they cut off some of the moving cost, which seemed really sketchy.
It took about a week and half for our stuff to arrive, which was on schedule. However we got a call from the company saying that they we owed an additional amount or they were going to hold our items on the truck "and there's always the option to come get it ourselves". WHAT! This company had ONE job, and terrible customer service. We had to pay this amount in order for us to get our items...not to mention they showed up and hour late, handed me a razor and put ME to work saying "don't cut yourself". I had to then unwrap all their blankets from our furniture to give back to them. That was supposed to be done by THEM as we were told originally. Also to be noted, there was only one guy who showed up, and the other was asleep in the truck apparently. Which is why I had to do the work for them. The WORST part is, 3 of our expensive large pieces of furniture showed up completely demolished. They won't event give us enough to compensate for even half of what ONE of these pieces cost. Offered us a total of $96 total...what a RIP OFF. All of our boxes written FRAGILE were completely smashed, almost as if it were on purpose.
Stay far away from this company. I will never use them again, and didn't want to end up writing a bad review, but then again they offered terrible customer service and showed no consideration for our personal items.
