Re: Call Kurtis Investigates: Where’s My Stuff? The Risk of Rogue Movers

Re: Call Kurtis Investigates: Where’s My Stuff? The Risk of Rogue Movers

Fantastic information and perhaps I have had one too many Irish Whiskeys this evening but let's be real about the folks who hire these companies. -Some of them might not understand the difference but many do know that they likely should go with a better carrier but want to try and save money anyways...

Re: How to measure the truck

Can you explain how you picked the company you chose? Were they part of 5 or 6 companies that called you after you went online thru perhaps U-Haul/Billy and Budget Van Lines?

Thanks

Re: Planning a move from SF to NYC

I think 22k is too high but 9k is way too low. 11k pounds and 3 months of storage IMO should be somewhere in the middle. Figure $1 a pound, maybe $1.15 if you are in some remote section but San Fran is not remote. I think I would call an Allied/United/Mayflower rep and get at least 2 more in home es...

Re: Scam or just cheap?

Is there any reason not to post the company name so others out there do not have to suffer the same hell you have been going through.

When is the government going to hire 10-20 rogue agents to set up moves and catch people doing this and immediately shut them down?

Re: I can no longer send my potential customers here for info gathering

After some internal discussion and all the comments that have been posted here offering a wide range of perspectives on this topic, we've decided to replace the banner with something a little less "Alarmist" and something more in line with helpful advice. It seems there are as many opinions on depo...

Re: I can no longer send my potential customers here for info gathering

I understand some of you say "That's just the cost of business"...I hold a business degree from the University of Miami and I promise you the intellectuals do not agree with this as a way to build a business..."OH WELL?" is not a way to run a business IMO. You can always disagree. As a matter of re...

Re: I can no longer send my potential customers here for info gathering

I agree, there are times when a small deposit, maybe $100, is ok for placeholding, but companies demanding 50% upon loading is not. These are thr guys getting their cut before subcontracting. No reputable company would ask for half up front. If a reader of this website sees that message and gets tu...

Hi to Everyone, I wanted to thank everyone for all their help and advice over the last 8-10 months that I have been coming here for information and tools to help not just myself but my potential customers.

Re: Never use Safe Relocation, they are scammers!

First of all, thank you for sharing this terrible experience. I have a few questions, none of them meant to be adversarial in any way. 1. Did you call one of the bigger companies like Allied/United/May/Bekins/NAVL/Atlas...what did they tell you if you called them for a moving quote? 2. Were you hopi...

Re: New Broker Scam

What board? Where is it, how can we all find it? You make it sound like the brokers have a special forum or board similar to something like this and that rogue movers are there to help potential customers of the brokers. I'm just trying to understand. I know what brokers do but I have never known of...
