Additional Notes

Complaint: This was the worst moving experience in the past 12 years of moving every two years with the military. Carlyle was assigned to us and moved our items. Once we examined everything, 1/3 of our household items/furniture were damaged or ruined. We filled out the forms and negotiated for a long period until we reached an agreeable amount. However, being military, when a company does not fulfill their obligation, you contact the military installation law office. This company claimed we needed to submit receipts (for new furniture we purchased less than a year prior to pickup-two leather couches and a wine cooler) and they also requested photos. We delivered on everything. Then we waited and over a year later, we find out that they falsified information on the documents to claim we had damaged furniture prior to pickup. We had the photos prior to pickup that showed no damage. Then, we were told they would repair all these items plus others (bookshelves, entertainment system, etc.) items. It's been a year and a half. The issue with repairs is that the inspector that goes over all the damage, is also their repairman! This is an unethical and unprofessional way of doing business. Of course, he is going to claim that everything can be repaired since he will be pocketing more money. We had to fight for months just to receive a quarter of what our things were worth and if anything, military families deserve to know that this company is incompetent, greedy, unprofessional, and doesn't deserve the government's money in assisting us.

Desired Settlement: Matching leather couch and love seat $1348. Wine cooler $199.

Business Response: Mr. ******,

I am sorry that I have been out of the office due to an illness.  I am looking into your claim and will get back with you before the end of day tomorrow, April 17, 2014.
**** *******

Business Response:

Mr. ******,

            Per your complaint, I understand that you have waited over a year for a claim settlement.  Here is the timeline I was able to come up with for your claim:

                        Dec 13, 2012 claim was filed


                        Dec 19, 2012 proof of claim was filed with carrier (Carlyle Van Lines)


                        Jan 31, 2013 initial offer for settlement of items that were claimed was made to you in the DPS system.


Mar 8, 2013 Repairs were authorized on items, however our records reflect that the third party inspector/repairman made multiple attempts in March/April/May to connect with you in regards to making the repairs.  Until the statement to the BBB about the repairman/inspector we were unaware that you had decided not to use them for the authorized repairs.


Mar 21, 2013 you accepted claimed offer of $1447 in DPS.  The three items in question (sofa, love seat and wine cooler) were denied our office from the initial offer because of the damages listed on the origin inventories.  Your signature and because no exception were written in dispute on these origin documents signifies that you agreed with the assessment.  At the which point, because a settlement could not be reached between you and Carlyle Van Lines, the three items in question were turned over to the Military Claims Office (MCO).  Once these items were turned over, all settlement for the items would be done through the MCO.  To date, Carlyle Van Lines has not be subrogated against for any monies in relation to this claim. 


All inquires for the three remaining claim items need to be done through your local MCO.  I can forward that number to you if necessary.

Additional Notes

Complaint: Contacted ******* Van Line to resolve issue via their dispatch with delivery truck. The Kenworth delivery truck (***: *******) blockaded a government officials driveway and refused to move truck after numerous request. The two individuals then came forth after govt official departed through a residential lawn. The two individuals, male & female, confronted homeowners and it was apparent that both individuals were under the influence of some sort of drug, possibly methamphetamine. Because of their lack of courtesy and disregard to neighbor's property, the trash collection was not serviced due to ******* Van Line's Moving Truck. After several contacts with ******* Van Lines asking about compensation for trash fees for which they are responsible for because of their obstruction, all phone conversations with this firm end with a dial tone hang up.

Desired Settlement: Letter to Government Commander stating why official was obstructed from departing from their house in order to report for official ordersCompensation for trash pickup fees later accrued due to obstruction of moving truck

Business Response: Dear **. *********,

I want to extend to you my sincerest apology for the impression you have of ******* Van Lines.  If you will call me directly, I will make sure you are compensated for the missed trash removal.  My phone number is ###-###-#### or ###-###-#### or my cell phone number is ###-###-####.
