Additional Notes

Complaint: We found this company through a BBB search. On April 18, 2014 we had hired movers as we were selling our house and moving into a condo. ******************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************* We accepted the cash offer though since we needed them to come this day. The movers came and started moving our furniture. There was a big bang when they were disassembling our bed. We thought nothing of it until we saw our bedframe in the new condo. There were huge chunks missing out of the wood. The mover began denying it was them and then used a sharpy to try and cover the marks! The back of our couch is also now all scuffed up as they were resting it on the condominium staircase and the wall in our previous house has a huge gauge out of it from them moving the second bedframe. At the end of the move we sat down and started discussing the damage done. They began writing on the already signed contract that they did not do it! It made it look like I signed off on what they had wrote in the comments box! They also increased the quoted rates of mattress bags from $5.00 for a double bed and $8.00 for a king bed to $10 each. ***************************************************************.... The movers offered us $40 off if we did not tell their boss about the damages but we said no as our furniture is very expensive and would like resolved properly. We asked for a copy of the receipt and they said we could not have one unless we paid GST too so now we had to pay an extra 40GST on a "CASH JOB". I called the office the following Tuesday and the owner said he would like to come and see the damages. He said that he would not put it through his insurance and offered us $40. On the back of the receipt it says that damages can be covered through their insurance as long as the customer pays the $250 deductible..... which we are willing to do. Like I said our furniture is very expensive. I would not recommend this company to anyone. ******************************************************************************************************************************************

Desired Settlement: I want my furniture to be replaced through their insurance. I am willing to pay the $250 deductible as outlined on the contract I signed....

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/05/01) */ We contacted the customer to arrange some refinishing of the scratches. I am waiting for an answer. She requested a new set on our insurance. Our insurance will not accept to give a new bed for minor scratches. We already refund $40. They refused the wrapping procedures in the house but we still wrapped in the truck. The movers said it was already there but I am ready to fix those damages by sanding, tinting and varnishing so it will be like new. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 7, 2014/05/12) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) The movers claim that we asked them not to wrap the bed frame **************************** We assumed that they were wrapping it as everything else we got them to move was wrapped. ***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** ************************************************************
