Submitted this review about ABC MOVING SERVICE
Review made Live: 4/5/2012 4:39:00 PM
We contracted with ABC Movers (they service NJ and PA) to move us from one townhouse to another. The owner, Mick Jadallah,quoted us a rate of $100/hr and guaranteed, with a total of 4 men, to finish the job in 8 hours. They ended up taking 11 HOURS to complete the job. Mick asked us if we could pay part of it in cash because he didn't have enough money to pay his helpers. We made a trip to the bank so that we could honor his request. Though we did not have to pay him for any additional hours over 8, we gave him an extra $200. The next day, I went back to the house to clean up. I walked into the laundry room to a very strong odor of gas. To make a long story short, the gas company came out and determined that the gas connection was cracked when our gas dryer was removed during the move. The total cost to repair this was $218. We called Mick and he told us that he would definitely reimburse us for the repair cost. We tried to reach him for several weeks to give him the exact amount, but he would not answer our calls. My husband made a final attempt to call him (using *67 to hide his phone number) and Mick picked up the call. He said he would not reimburse us, that we "asked" him to remove the dryer and it wasn't his fault that he didn't know what he was doing. We did NOT ask him to remove it....having never moved a gas dryer before, we ASSUMED the mover would do this. Mick NEVER said anything to us during the move nor when he initially came over to give us an estimate, that he could not disconnect the dryer. We are considering taking this to Small Claims Court. It is unfortunate that choosing Mick Jadallah and ABC Movers turned out to be such a bad decision. He is obviously not someone we would EVER recommend to anyone!!
