Liars!!! Do not use them!

Review made Live: 7/22/2013 4:07:00 PM
LIARS, LIARS, LIARS!!! My husband and I needed a moving company quickly to go from Alexandria, VA to Belmont, CA (Basically Washington D.C. to San Francisco) for a new job. The salesman I talked to, Joe, was a smooth talker from the start and promised that our things would arrive on July 6th. The moving company was actually Amiran Van Lines and they were hours late in picking our things up on June 27th. They have been lying to us all along the way about when our delivery date will be and it has been 26 days today since they picked up our things. The driver is still driving from Indiana to Missouri currently and "hopes to be in California by the end of the week" which is highly unlikely since they have also given him more jobs to do and he isnt even halfway across the U.S. They consolidate your furniture with other peoples' furniture and drop their things off along the way so you have to wait longer if you are farther out. We were told that for the first two weeks our things were sitting in storage in Virginia because "a truck had broken down" and it would take longer now to receive our things. From numerous other reviews I see that they say that to everyone. We have been paying for an apartment as well as hotel stays for more than two weeks just waiting for our things to arrive. It looks like they may be able to arrive next week sometime after August 1st. Instead of the 10 days they promised they could be an additional 25 or more days late. So we still do NOT have our things. We have tried talking to the owner, George, and he is extremely rude and does not care. I talked to Mike, a supervisor, and he just gives the line that the truck was broken down for the first two weeks. The other girls you get on the phone are polite, but never know what's going on; they just put you on hold until they reach a supervisor. This has been the WORST company we have EVER dealt with. Please beware and do not use them!! They may be cheap, but you will pay for it later with hotel stays, eating out and emotional distress!
