We moved a couple days ago. We had used this company eight years ago and was very impressed, but this time was very, very disappointed. I had told them to bring the biggest truck and possibly will need to be a second truck. Three gentlemen showed up to move us. We were down sizing to a smaller home. We walked through the house and garage. We had most things in the garage already. I think once they had seen everything wasn’t going to fit the had to come up with something. We were finally told they were not going to be able to take anymore out of our bedroom because of least. They told my husband first then he came and got me. I was furious, went into that room to see what they were getting at. I will say our biz springs has some pet hair because we have three small dogs, and how many people vacuum their box springs for dog hair. They looked more and said there were pest. I had worked for a motel and my son in law had worked for a pest control and it was nothing. So before we left to go to closing we had discussed them getting the heavy items, patio furniture. They also said they were going to just put items in the garage and be done. Our estimate was to set items back up. We had already gave those gentlemen a bonus and offered to get them lunch. We left to go to the two closings and my son in law had stayed at the house with the movers. Once we were done closing we came to the new house. We offered again lunch and they had decide to take the offer, we let them decide where and we went to get food. The started move things into the garage, we were told then that they would put items in the house. We told them we’re to put things like boxes. Guess what that was not done correctly. Took a door off to get the washer and dryer in, did not put that back on and left those items in the middle of the floor. After all of this we were hit with a higher bill, I had told their supervisor we will not pay the total bill before we went to closing. Once we got the total bill we had decided to pay the total amount to just get them out of haur and be done. But I will tell you told our kids and will tell everyone we know NOT TO USE THEM IF MOVING!!!!!! Our kids worked most of Thursday night and Friday night to finish moving us. I should send this company our remainder of our bill for moving. For the amount we paid should have been done much better!!!! Extremely disappointed!!!!!!!!
