Metropolitan Movers and storage / Whats really happening to your things in storage
Hello My name is Erica L. I don't know if this story will ever be ran, but I feel the people of Chicago should know about this. It started when me and my partner had Metropolitan Moving And storage company move our things into our new home. To say they did a crap job is being kind. Most of our things were damaged and missing. Kitchen table that was supposed to be wrapped tightly and kept in a storage facility came to my house with what looked like water stains caused by not using a coaster. 6 month old 500 dollar coffee table had one of the drawers ripped off, microwave stand broken, hanging wall mirror had the paper backing ripped off, boxes with kitchen and bathroom things lost or stolen. I say stolen because when I asked one of the movers where my 19 inch spare television was the guy said he didn't know and gave me some one else's television, over hearing this exchange one of his co-workers replied by saying "yeah that television has a better picture anyway!!" When told about all of this the warehouse managers at this company did not offer a discount they offered to send one of their handymen to come out and fix what they can. As far as the boxes go they just cant find them. When we stopped payment on the check and closed the account until we could come to a reasonable and fair agreement, they threatened to file criminal charges against my partner citing she stole our own items. Not once did we get an apology or did we get our missing items back. I hope and pray that you find it in your heart to run this story because I believe Chicago should know what goes on in some of these so-called storage facilities. Hopefully you will find others who have been the victim of I say crimes like this one who are willing to stand up for themselves.
