Protected Van Lines / Movers and Packers
I always wonder how these guys are rated as 4 star and all the 5 star rating reviews always shows up at the top in Yelp. The secret only protected van lines and yelp knows. Let me come to the point. If you don't want to lose your money please stay away from them. They are known for giving false promises and then say we will give you great discount but to receive the discount we must book immediately with 50% deposit amount. They will send you a link to your email and you should click it immediately. You will never get enough time to read the long terms and conditions which is a big trap. Believe me, as soon as you click the link, you are done and your money is gone. They will never respond to your calls. If you get frustrated and say cancel my order, they will start talking about the terms and conditions that you clicked which is actually an electronic signature that will show your ip address and browser and it will say you agreed to the terms and conditions. If you don't cancel within 72 hours you will lose your deposit money. great trick isn't? let me post their terms and conditions so that no one will ever get cheated again by these people. Please be aware and never ever book them for your move if you don't want to lose your hard earned money. They will also claim that a negative review is always posted by their competitor.
