Re: Moving Az to Va next week

You can also check with local van line agents as most companies can load up your things into wooden vaults or their own version of a Pod-like container and store it, then you have your loading, transport, storage, and unloading all taken care of. Welcome to VA! There seem to be a few people heading ...

Re: Need Help FInding a Company

Unfortnately the three you're looking at don't have good reviews here to point to. In this industry, you're more likely to read bad ones than have a customer write a good one. We encourage happy customers to write but most of the time everyone's too busy settling into their new place that coming bac...

Re: Need Help FInding a Company

I wpuld always trust a van line agent over an independent just at first glance because the van line has already vetted them. They aren't going to allow some joe schmo to sully their name with bad service. I've been at this website since 2003 and I can only think of 2 agents who were dropped by the v...

Re: Need Help FInding a Company

1. What have you read that leads you to believe Wheaton is a bad company? If it was one or two reviews, consider that they move thousands of people PER YEAR with a large number of trucks. If there's a company with a single truck with one or two bad reviews, that's far more statistically significant....

Re: Chicago to dc

PLEASE listen to Bill. If one company's offer seems too god to be true, and the other one looks even better, both of those ahould send you back to the drawing board. Use nobody who refuses to vome to your house to see everything to be moved before writing you an estimate.

Re: Spotting the fakes among the five-star reviews

...Says the unlicensed moving company stealing a known name to get recognized, with a Yelp page covered with several one star reviews and a lone overly happy 5 star review. That one was very easy to pick out among the others, by the way.

Re: Mover sentenced in money-for-furniture extortion scheme

What's really sad is that the guy who made a phone call got a fine and probation, but the movers who started the whole thing grabbed all the money and ran with no consequences.

Re: Movers two weeks late - failing delay claim

I'm sorry, sometimes this does happen, if another person's shipment that was supposed to go on the same truck is bigger than expected, it can shove out the smaller moves. At least they are offering to pay you a delay claim. I can't say how much it will be, but it's probably best to get a cheap air m...

Re: DC Local Move

It's more common for a local move to be charged by the hour, which is unknown, therefore it's not often that they set a cap on the prices. Don't discount someone who won't set the cap, but it certainly is nice if they give it. You know your bill won't go higher than that. Beltway's deposit may be a ...

Re: Think I fell for scam, what to do next?

Just to give you a head's up, CVLR has this cancellation policy on their website. They may choose to fight your bank because of that, but they failed to do their contracted service so you certainly have an argument for breach of contract. Check out the number of complaints filed! m It really is a go...

Re: Think I fell for scam, what to do next?

If they show up at any time, SEND THEM AWAY. Do not let them take your stuff. If you're worried now, it would only get worse if they had your belongings. Did you pay them a deposit? You can dispute that. Do you want to say who it is? You can send me a private message and I can at least either confir...

I would recommend that you call AC White in Atlanta and ask for Archie White. Say we sent you to him. When you're ready to move your things, his company is topnotch.

Re: TSC Moving Insolvent

Interesting. Unless your goods were picked up in 2012 and stored since then, then your move was done completely illegally and Jones and Jones will be hit with a huge fine. His Quran troubles may soon be the lesser of his worries. Their household goods license for interstate transport was on January ...

Re: TSC Moving Insolvent

You should contact www.moverescue.com and ask for help. This is a lawyer referral service (the referral is free, the lawyer is not) to trained and experienced transportation lawyers who can help you get your stuff back.

I'm going to do a little research right now.
