A Professional Movers / Scam artists
Complete scam artists. I was making a local move with 7 furniture pieces but thought I would use a moving company since a couple of pieces were heavy. I was quoted a rate of $225 for the move, which I felt was reasonable and I accepted. I was told that if I wanted packing material, the charges would be extra, which made sense. Before unloading, I was provided a REVISED estimate of $750 !!! The difference was on account of (a) extra time taken to pack (they already knew what I needed to pack and I had been assured the entire move would take only 3 hours) (b) packing material (they wrapped layers on layers on everything, and when I said I did not need it, they said they must do it - I understand protection, but this was ridiculous!!! (c) some extra charge for delivery at 2 places (I was keeping some stuff in storage). Again, when I had made the reservation, no extra charge was ever informed to me.
I called the movers but the lady (Tina) did not even come to the phone. Her supervisor Marianne said she could not help me. the driver was very rude and said I must pay or he would keep my furniture.
THIS WAS A COMPLETE SCAM where they lowballed estimates and once my furniture was loaded, they extracted more money from me. Beware before moving!!
