The move with Alliance Worldwide Van Lines was quoted at $3175 for 5000 pounds with the condition that a lower weight or higher weight would be result in a change in cost based on the formula of $0.55 per pound. Well, after pleading ignorance of the driver demanding extra money from my daughter which she paid they finally agreed that I had paid too much but they still wanted an extra $1500 and they had no intention of weighing the shipment. They demanded the extra money before they would deliver. At first they insisted on cash but later allowed credit card payment. I had to pay or never see my stuff again. After getting the stuff delivered I estimate the weight was around 3000 pounds so the cost should have been less than $2000. Ripped off for $3000 by Alliance Worldwide Van Lines, Dean's Logistics, Northern Van Lines, and Moving Connection which all seem to play together to steal from customers. Avoid all of them like the plague they are.
