Additional Notes

Complaint: Damage occurred during a move in December 2011. We have contacted Mr. Jeffers many times both by US Mail, email and telephone. He sent over two employees to inspect the damage. He told us he would contact his insurance agent to take care of the problem. As of today we have not heard from Mr. Jeffers and/or his agent so we have decided to contact the BBB because Mr. Jeffers has not responded to our claim. We have provided to Mr. Jeffers the documents he requested as to the value of damage claim. We had the following problems.1. Vintage pinball machine cabinet damaged.2. Door frame was damaged.

Desired Settlement: Payment for damages that occurred.

Business Response:

a third party prepared the machines to be moved. damage was found after third party unwrapped machine meaning damage was done before moving. turned over to my insurance. **** ********** @ *** ***ty ###-###-####. 8-20-12 received small claims complaint #12CV21892 . JOE SHELTON

Consumer Response:

Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID*******, and have determined that this does not resolve my complaint.   

Prior to our contracting with Jeffers for the move, the owner was aware the machines would be prepared for the move by a third party.  This was our suggestion and he was fine with that approach.  To our knowledge before Jeffers took on the responsibility to move the machines, they were inspected for the condition and nothing was noted of prior damage.  His allegation is questioning our integrity as if we are trying to gain access to money for the machines.  He is not dealing with that type of individuals who are looking for a quick buck.   Our machines and door frame were damaged in the move.  It is only after the small claims court filing he has openly given BBB his insurance contact because he did not respond to the BBB about our complaint.   We have a letter from the third party that the machines were in excellent condition prior to the move.  This was passed on to Jeffers and we received no response.  This is what prompted us to contact the BBB and subsequently a small claims suit to try and get this resolved.  Jeffers Moving & Storage to this date have not contacted us.
