Additional Notes

Complaint: We hired this company to move a piano from my in laws house to my house. While leaving my in laws house the movers dropped the piano. We have been trying to get a hold of them so they can file an insurance claim to get my piano repaired. However, they have been ignoring us.

Desired Settlement: I would like the company to accept fault, call their insurance, and then notify me that my piano will be repaired at no cost to me.

Business Response:

We are not familiar with Mr. **** or the fact that he has made several attempts to contact us until Monday the 21st via a phone call and Tuesday  the 22nd via e mail.

The piano is still at the pick up location in the garage padded and shrink wrapped. No one at the residence took into consideration that it was winter and the stairs were full of ice and snow. However one of our guys lost his footing, breaking his leg and thus loosing control of the piano. There is a claim process and we have not received a written claim or a request for a claim form. Also there was no monies collected for any part of the service nor any additional insurance coverage taken out. The bill of lading determines the coverage over and above the standard 30 cents per lb. per article. We accept no liability in this unfortunate accident. In all our information that we send to our customers in the winter time we stress the importance of having walk ways and necessary areas shoveled and salted in order to provide a safe pathway for our movers.



Consumer Response:
Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because: The walkway was cleared for the movers. The weather was cold and snowy. It is the responsibility of the professional movers to decide whether or not it is safe to move a piano down the stairs. The company also says that they have not received a claim from us; the reason they have not received a claim is because every time we call to ask how to go about getting reimbursed the company does not call back. They have been avoiding us, hoping we will go away. The only response we have gotten is through the BBB. Furthermore, those dates of being contacted are when I called. Until then, my father in law had been calling for around 2 months. Joey's Movers knows full well what they did, and are trying to avoid being accountable. 


**** ****

Business Response:

There have been several resources reaching out to our office on behalf of Mr. **** and we are not sure what source is going to clear the issue. There are some missing factors here and our attorney has been or will be within the week in touch with Mr. ****'s legal council. We have been contacted by a mediator, an attorney and BBB

Additional Notes

Complaint: I had several items damaged during my move. The company sent a repairman to my home and he was able to repair several items but not all. The company has been non-responsive in my attempts to obtain compensation for the remaining damaged items. I did purchase the additional insurance coverage from them. I have emailed them many times. Responses, when they do respond, have ranged from our checks go out on the 30th of the month to Customer Service will contact you. I moved back in February, 2013. I think I have waited long enough to have this matter resolved.

Desired Settlement: I want all of the items I submitted on my claim form either replaced or I want financial compensation for them.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 10, 2013/11/14) */ Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 12, 2013/11/17) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) Following is the list of originally submitted damaged items. I have now included approximate dates of purchase as the business has requested. Please note, most of these items were purchased at the same time after I relocated to IL from ** and purchased almost all new furniture.

Wherever possible I did make note of the original cost of each damaged item and a link to the appropriate website to find the item. I do realize that some of these items will be repairable and it will not be necessary to replace the item. Final Business Response /* (4000, 38, 2014/03/10) */ The check was signed and sent last week. Not accepting this response due to the fact the check had to of been received. he payment was sent to the address where items from storage were delivered Final Consumer Response /* (4200, 16, 2013/12/03) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) I don't know yet what their proposed resolution is. Their only reply is that they "are processing the requested information."
