    I hired Two Men and a Truck to provide me with removing men to move the contents of my home from the house into a storage container in the driveway. They sent me a little girl, approximately 22 years old, who couldn’t carry a heavy suitcase let alone, a China closets and heavy furniture. Along with another middle-aged woman, and a young man who had little to no experience moving furniture! They showed up at my house on Saturday morning dropped off by an Uber! No handtruck, no dollies, no nothing. The only thing they brought with them was plastic wrap, and the first thing they wanted to do was waste time wrapping dresser drawers with plastic, I insisted empty dresser drawers did not need to be wrapped!

    When I called their office to complain, they told me they don’t discriminate against women. I do not discriminate against women either, but I did not hire a very small 20 something year old girl as a moving man or a middle-age woman. If that were my intention, I would’ve used my wife and daughter. If it had not been for me, supplying them with a handtruck and myself, and my son, helping with the heavy furniture, the move would not have taken place and after all the nonsense these people subjected me to they charged me an additional half hour, On top of the $905 they charged me for three hours!

    I asked Eric repeatedly, the young man who seem to be in charge if we were still within the time constraints so that I would not be charged additional time and every time I asked him he told me yes, but apparently he was so new to the company he did not understand the policy that they have to allow a half hour travel time to get back to their base! I have hired numerous moving companies in my 63 years of moving many times, and I have never had a moving company send me a young girl, a middle-age woman, and another young guy with little to no experience! Do yourself a favor and do not use this company.

    I had used this company in Houston previously when I moved from my townhouse to my current apartment. That move was great.. no problems.. HOWEVER this time I was moving my 2 bedroom apartment from Houston to Tyler Texas.. a four hour drive. I spoke to someone named Troy about the move.. I even sent pictures of all of the rooms and things to be moved. WELL I packed almost everything everything in my apartment in plastic bins. The only thing left were clothes and the kitchen. On the day of the move... two great guys came and started loading the the afternoon they were running out of the boxes they brought...

    but continued to load the truck 4 in the afternoon... they started leaving... I stopped them and asked them why they were leaving without loading the kitchen. They said, "YOU DIDN'T PURCHASE A KITCHEN PA CKAGE..."

    Now I ask you... if I'm moving 4 hours away from my apartment why wouldn't I pack my kitchen??? I called the office and got some smart mouthed woman who asked me me if I had ever moved before... I'm 78 years old military veteran... how many times do you think I've moved in a 20 year history??? We went to my new home 4 hour away and the gentlemen unloaded the truck and left. My brother and I had to go back to Houston the next day and load the kitchen...I was charged 2100 dollar for this fiasco...

    I will stress that the young men who moved me were excellent...THE MANAGER TROY AND HIS SIDEKICK WOMAN need to go to work a Mcdonalds... these two need to off their cell phones and assess and go make a general inspection of what needs to be done at the residence to be moved. l NEVER NEVER NEVER USE THIS COMPANY. It would be better to rent a Uhaul and movers provided by uhaul and do it yourself... Disgust and anger are the two words I have for this company.

      Our movers, Brian ** and BT ** were professional, courteous and efficient. They handled our belongings carefully. They kept to the quoted schedule, moved all our belongings into storage and answered all our questions. We would definitely ask for the team again. It was an excellent experience.

      I hired these movers for a move on April, 28 2023. They were 1.5 hours late and took 20 min to get going. They scratched my floor trying to move the couch and it is a very small couch. It took them 2.5 hours to load a couch, dresser, bed, tv stand, desk and a TV. They wouldn't take the TV at first because the truck wasn't full enough so I mentioned calling the manager after which they agreed to take it.

      Upon getting to the new place, they couldn't get the couch in and damaged the walls. They put the bed together wrong and left the dresser in the wrong part of the room when I asked twice to have it moved. They told us they would be back at 9am the next morning to complete the move (couch). We were ok with that. They didn't show up or call the next day. They called at 9:45 when everyone was gone and begged to come complete the move at which point we informed them it was too late, we were not interested in any business moving forward based on the horrible experience.

      I spoke to a manager about the damages done and they acknowledged it and told me a manager would call me. Instead of contacting me to resolve the issues, they charged me another $156 for "extra time made on the move." They moved 6 pieces of furniture (I moved the rest myself throughout the day) and 2 boxes 1.4 km and are trying to charge for over $800 for the move after they damaged both properties. I was quoted at $600 before anything happened. I signed nothing to complete the move. They have continued to try to put charges on my credit card without authorization which I have now have had to report as fraud. DO NOT USE THEM.

      I'm moving about a 20-minute drive from where I live right now, and the quote he gave me was $500 when all I'm moving is a PC with a desk, 2 bags of clothes, a toaster oven, microwave, mini fridge and a bicycle. Just the contents of my tiny bedroom. I laughed and hung up. Found someone who can do it for $50.

      This company is all talk and poor performance! I am a single person moving 2 bedrooms and garage storage items one city over and the 2 guys that came were initially enthusiastic and after looking at everything that I already packed confirmed that the 2 guys could move me within the 3 hour paid window of time. Not only did they go over the 3 hours forcing me to pay several hundred dollars more than originally quoted but also broke several items that were valuable.

      Apparently they are given a 30 minute break where they left and 8 drawer dresser tilted up on its side in the new garage for that whole time breaking the plastic settings the drawer rails for into preventing the drawers from being able to slide in and out smoothly. Why they left a dresser sit on its side like that and disappear into their truck is the worst customer service I have ever experienced.

      They told me originally that I could leave the drawers full but then the movers complained that it was too heavy for them and to remove the drawers. Needless to say the $1800 dresser was ruined because once the drawers were removed with the plastic clip pieces broken and the silver rolling balls all over the ground from the drawer track, the dresser was being damaged. I even watched one of the movers walk around the corner to get high from my upstairs bedroom window. This is the worst moving experience and poor customer service in any of my moves, and I would never use them again or recommend them to anyone. You are better off hiring strangers through Craigslist to move you.

      Scheduled my move with the Delray Beach, FL office for 12/22/22. Items were left in my home and not loaded on the truck. No effort was made to rectify. 2 movers were sent, but one got injured and could not finish the move. It was a 2 hour move to Naples, FL. Had to move my own items off the truck and up the stairs with the remaining mover. Was called and told not to get on the truck and help was on the way. No help ever arrived. Furniture severely damaged. Suffered multiple bruises. Paid over $2000 and only $150 refund was issued for dissatisfaction. Would not recommend to anyone. Horrible customer service and even the corporate office was no help in correcting this awful situation.

      I hired this company to move me in July. They sent lovely guys that were new except for one. They didn’t the entire day in two rooms. I had to guide the third one and tell them how to write on the boxes. They did not have pens. One of her packed nixed upside down and they packed my wine which got out in a hot truck. I started packing to help. I bought the guys food and water then we returned to packing. The third mover was new and wandered around. The next day when the crew that loads the boxes on the truck to take them to my new place, we’re livid that the packing was only completed in two rooms. They called management who came to review and they called more guys over to know it out which took the entire day and into the night. Because some of the boxes were packed upside down, and opened on my stairs which broke on my wood stairs and scratched the wood.

      The guys were exhausted as I was after packing and kidding my car. They got lazy at the end understandably and as a result items weren’t completed and some furniture left at the house. I was then charged $6000 for a 7 mile move. I called management to make it right that as a result of their misdirects, I was not paying for that. It was given to review by person who was not in the team that came to Inspect what had not been done by the packers, when the moving guys called complaining. I was told that I had to pay for the hour out in and was then charged liver $6000 for 7 miles. I’m moving this weekend to Dallas and it’s costing me $3500 with another company with ethics. I think this felt so fraudulent that they can send people to stand around and hang out at my house taking their time and not knowing what they are doing then charge me for their incompetence.

      They should have made right for me. How often do you get management called. Over by their own team then add more people because if the guys the day before. I should not have had to lay for the day before. It was unacceptable and they never made it right, even being dishonest to my credit card company by ignoring their investigation. I would never recommend this company and hope no one ever gets scammed like I did.

      We were quoted an amount but then was charged $600 more than what was quoted. When we called and talk to the manager we told him that he had been lied to. He replied with “that is your prerogative.” We will never be using this company again.

      This is not an honest moving company. The things that they do show how little regard they have for their customer. They will demand maybe $300-$500 more than estimated price about halfway through packing truck and threaten not to finish packing truck if you don't agree. They also like dirty tricks such as telling you that last person who put your bed together damaged it and you need to pay more for them to fix it. I reminded them they were the last ones who moved me and put my bed together and I was sure they could handle it.
