Review made Live: 3/20/2017 11:56:25 AM
When I first sought after a moving company to move my furniture (only a one bedroom) from Houston TX to North Carolina, they quoted me $1,770.00. I received the quote from Alex. I asked him if this was the official and final quote, and he said that the quote was official and I had a lot more space available and it would not be a problem. On the day of the move they told me that it was $3,375.00, "because they quoted me on 5 square feet but mine was 8 square feet" (just by visual). They hadn't even took anything out of my storage to determine that and then they told me that I could not get my down payment back (so I was forced to use them). I had to get more money and didn't have the total amount until my next payday and they added $160.00 to unload and reload when I was ready. Once I paid the remaining upfront amount, they said they would be in NC, where I live now, in 3-5 days. They were not here in 3-5 days, it was more like 6 days. On top of all of that I was missing a bin with $700.00 worth of items, which I didn't realize until after they left.
