Additional Notes

Complaint: Hired Herlihy Moving & storage to deliver a storage container, help load and then store the container until I was ready for the storage container to be return. After 4 months I requested the return of the storage container & assistance in unloading. Herlihy Moving & Storage double billed me for the storage container fee. I notified Herlihy of the mistake on July 17, 2014. They did not believe me, so I provided all the documentation proving the double bill, and they have not responded to my inquires and request to be refunded the $597.72 over charge. The last correspondence with *** ***** of the company stated he was going out of town and would not return until Tuesday? Very poor customer service, and misuse of customer credit card on file to charge us monthly and recharge us at the final bill.

Desired Settlement: To receive full refund

Business Response: We just issued a refund of $597.72 to the customer's credit card.  I explained that we accidentally double invoiced for the loading charges.

Additional Notes

Complaint: Destroyed many things of mine while moving,failure to return any of my calls. I hired them to move me from ******** to their storage buildings in ***********. The movers wrapped my things in packing material and placed them in the moving van. I had never hired a moving company before so I stood and watched and done what they instructed me to do which was that they took it and locked the storage building that it was not necessary for me to follow them. While my items were stored I went to the building to see if I could find my sons bike when the weather cleared but when I opened the building it was stacked floor to ceiling front to back so much that u could not see the back wall so I just closed the door and went home. When I went to move out we noticed how bad my things were damaged. The leather couch ripped and scratched all up. The washer and dryer scratched up from what they stacked on top of it, dressers busted and so forth. I called them to come down and they advised me to take pictures and gave me papers to fill out for insurance claims. I waited and waited for an answer and never received one so I called the week of February 6th and called them,that's when they told me they was not going to do anything about it. They were so careless with all me and my sons belongings and still have no remorse on how I am being treated. They had taken all moving material that was used to wrap my belongings off and they is one reason things were damaged because they stacked so high it scratched the material and some items were so heavily stacked that it busted the pile of things.

Desired Settlement: I never expected them to totally replace all my things but I gave them receipts that showed my furniture was fairly new and never like that before. I am asking for something to at least try to repair my things. They act like this is my fault.

Business Response: The Customer did make the Company aware of her disappointment. The Company has reviewed its file and discuss the move with the crewleader. 1. The crewleader told the customer the size of the mini-storage was too small. He did not feel he could fit all the household goods. 2. Crewleader did not tell customer not to be present at unloading. The Company does not encourage this type of unloading situation because it can lead to this type of claim. 3. Crewleader said items were picked up from a garage in Franklin County. The amount of stuff jammed into this garage exceeded the estimate. 4. Crewleader did stack items into unit, and was able to make it fit. There was no noticable change in condition at delivery to mini-storage. 5. Company's liability ended at time of delivery, per the Bill of Lading. Customer's liability started with move-in to storage. 6. Customer re-moved items. Company was not involved with the second move. 7. Customer had limited liability coverage of $.60/lb per article per the Estimate/Order for Service and Bill of Lading. 8. The company would like to discuss a reasonable settlement with the shipper. A voice mail and an email have been sent. Waiting on a reply.

Consumer Response: (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) I did receive a call from *** he says he will send me a check for $150.00 which I think is more of an insult. His response saying that I was told not to go there to unload is a lie because I was told that and ******* told me the boys forged my name on paper work. And the size of the storage building was estimated from them and he called and told me I needed another one and I said that was fine as long as my stuff was stacked. My belongings were fairly new and I don't buy junk, I own high dollar things. I think more like 2,000.00 will be more acceptable for me to repair what I can.

Business Response: Customer was contacted about claim. Customer's comments to Company during phone conversation indicated she was satified with $150 settlement. Check was mailed the same day. Company does not concure w/ customer's recollection and settlement offer was a goodwill gesture. The customers response listed above does not correspond with earlier phone conversation that resulted in the $150 settlement offer. Quite frankly, I am surprised by these remarks. Customer had limited liability coverage associated with the move. The Bill of Lading limits the carrier's liability to the move. Upon delivery to the mini-storage, the carrier's responsiblity ended. There are no exceptions taken at the time of delivery. The damage the customer has submitted involves events that took place while the household goods were in mini-storage and re-moved to another location, where the liability falls on the customer. The Company feels bad about the customers situation, but there are other factors involved that have nothing to do with the Company's performance.

BBB's Final Determination: After reviewing the position of all parties, BBB determined that the business made a reasonable effort to address the complaint. However the consumer remains dissatisfied.
