Are the other reviewers talking about the same company? This is the worst company I have ever dealt with.
I contracted with them over a year ago to move my household items (1800 lbs) from Princeton to their storage facility in Philadelphia until I knew where I would be moving to. The men were supposed to arrive at 4pm. They arrive at 1am and noisily moved my furniture down one flight of stairs until 4am. This cost me $945 plus tip. How can I not tip movers? If I don't, I risk major damage to my things when I'm not looking.
Seven months later, I called APioneer to begin the process of moving my things to the Netherlands. I had no idea I would be moving overseas at the time. If I had known, I would have gone with an international company.This leg of the move cost me $5150, of which only $3500 is supposed to be paid to the international shippers. The remaining $1650 was supposed for a wooden crate and an administrative fee to move my things from their warehouse to the shipper's truck. After wiring the money, in mid-February, it took them until mid-April before they could order a crate and schedule the shipper to come. They were eager to serve me until the money was deposited. Then they ignored me for months and refused to take my calls whenever I asked about status of my shipment. The shipment arrived in the UK at the end of April. It is now early June and my shipment is still in the UK because APioneer has not paid the international shipper. My shipment is on hold because payment by Apioneer is 60 days overdue. Both the international shipper and I have been calling Apioneer daily and all we get is someone's voicemail. I have now been waiting nearly 6 months for my shipment and living in an half empty apartment. What would you do if you were in my shoes?
