WATCH OUT FOR LA MOVING (Los Angeles Moving). They provide you with lowball quotes and charge several hidden fees at the end! This text that was taken from the Better Business Bureau's website refers to the company that LA Moving used to be, "American Eagle Moving Services" :
Agency: Public Utilities Commission (PUC)
Description: In March of 2006, the PUC fined this moving company for operating without a permit and ordered carrier to pay $4, 300 in consumer restitution for overcharges. The company obtained a permit; however, it was subsequently revoked for various reasons including failing to pay the PUC fine. Subsequently, the PUC received two consumer complaints that the company alleging that the company took consumer goods and did not deliver them as promised. PUC staff was able to locate one consumer's goods and arranged for its release. In the other case, PUC staff obtained documentation on the mover from a consumer and also suggested that the consumer file a police report. Subsequently, PUC staff learned that the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) had located the moving truck parked on a street. The truck had expired plates and therefore was impounded by the police, and subsequently sold as a lien sale. PUC staff provided the consumer with the new provision of the Public Utilities Code that authorizes peace officers to take possession of goods being held hostage. This helped to secure release of the goods to the consumer. The carrier has five vans, all of which have expired plates. In the course of the investigation, staff located two of these five vans parked on the street and informed the LAPD. These vehicles were also impounded for expired DMV registration. The company was also evicted from its office/storage facility and is now out of business.
