Additional Notes

Complaint: I hired the Jeffers to move me. When I called to set up the move I spoke with the owner of the company. My move was to start a 8am on Wed. morning. The movers came at 8 15. ne of the movers asked if he could put a bottle of water in my freezer. I looked at him. He put it in the freezer any way. Then they started. Then they went to the truck and was there for about 15 mins. I told them we need to get this done. Then they started working. finally got everything on the truck after so many breaks The one mover told me he was blind. I told him he should not be doing this kind of work. So we get to the new place. I come and show then how to get moving. One of the movers is standing drinking more water. Talking about how hot he was. I told them we need to get this done. I dHe no not see them for a little while. I go looking for them One is standing looking out of the window. I told him I need to get this done please. He got very upset and was talking very loud. I went to the back to call the owner back. To tell him what was happening. He seem like he didn't care at all. So then the movers gave me my bill. It was $486 I told them no way. I am only paying for the time they were working. I called the owner. He and I went around and around. Then we came to 360. I paid it. Before the movers Left I saw a big hole in the back of one of my dresser. I showed it to the movers. Then I saw other thing that were damaged. The then the mover asked me to sign that everything was fine I told him no. I called the owner I was upset. He told me he would come out to see the damage. Three days went by. I called him he said he was on his way. I waited for three hours. He finally came. He did not take any pictures. He looked and told me some one would call me. I waited two weeks no call. I called him back he told me he was working on it and I would get some thing in the mail. Nothing ever came in the mail. I called back. He said he was done working on it and put it in the mail.. Nothing ever came. I called him today 9-9-14. He told me to have some one to come fix my thing and send him the bill. I told him no. I told him to send some one. Then he got up set and said he was done with it. I told him my things needs to be fixed. He told me to have it fixed and he would pay me back. I told him no. Then he got very upset and ended the call.

Desired Settlement: I want my things fixed the are not that old.

Business Response: Movers arrived within 10-15 minutes of arranged time, customer told movers she had a plane to catch (which she did not tell us about beforehand) and could they hurry up. Customer got in the way telling the movers how to do their job, which caused delays, and refused to pay the entire bill, citing damages. I inspected the items and offered to accept the amount she had paid, letting her keep the rest for damages.  The looking out the window issue the customer referred to was the mover looking for a shortcut into the apartment complex to save time unloading. Customer was charged $486.00 for 4.5 hours and she paid $360.00.

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.  


****** ******

I made the owner aware of this problem right away. He has never tried to fix the problem.

My daughter dresser has a very big hole in the back. My dresser is a lot of scratches on one side.

My dinning room table has very big nicks in it on one side. My dinning china in very big nicks in it.

The movers did not work the hole time they were there. Yes I had to ask them to keep working

they keep stopping for water breaks and the mover was day dreaming out of the window. One of the movers told me he was blind. I told him he

should  not have this job. I have tried to get this matter taken care of. The owner came to see

the damages. He took no pictures no notes. He just walked out of the door and said

someone would get back to me. No one ever did so I had to call him many of times.

He just told me lies. He told me he mailed something to me. Nothing ever came so I called him

back. Then the owner tried to trick me into paying to have my things fixed. I told him no he

got upset. And ended the call. I have not spoken to him since then.

This is not a good company for any one to use.  The one mover that told me he was blind got very

loud in the hall way. After I asked him to get back to work. I told the owner about that to he never

said nothing about it.


Consumer Response: Per phone call: The customer did not receive a written estiimate. She only received a verbal of 325.00

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.
