Additional Notes

Complaint: we used T&S Transportation as a moving company (based on their advertising) as well as a storage company. They have damaged many of my items, broke several other items including an expensive fan and a large glass table and lost several others. in return, they have only provided a small compensation based on the weight of damaged items. And that was all they did.

Desired Settlement: To be compensated for a larger amount as the compensation they have offered does not cover a full replacement of even one damaged item. This company should not be in business of moving and storing peoples valuables as they have no regard or respect for people's personal belongings and family heirlooms. They do not take the care necessary to conduct the business they are in properly and honestly

Business Response: Dear BBB.

Dr. ****** ordered service for 6/14/2014 to have 7150 lbs of
household goods picked up for storage. She specifically requested and initialed
the per pound coverage on the bill of lading to aquire that coverage and
declined the available replacement coverage to save the additional $500.50 that
it would cost as well as the additional $50.05 monthly cost for coverage in storage.
So her desire for replacement coverage without paying for it is not reasonable
at all.

Our investigation into her claim does not support her
estimated $1500.00 replacement value either. Our findings are as follows:

The outdoor table with the glass top that was broken has a
typical new value of about $200.00 with the glass included however the glass
itself would cost less than $100.00 to replace and that is what the coverage
would have been had she paid the $800.50 for replacement coverage.

The ceiling fan and lamp fixture had a broken pot metal arm
that mount to a fan blade. A pot metal construction fan are commonly available
at **** ***** or ***** for about $125.00 and would have been covered
accordingly had she paid the $800.50 for replacement  coverage.

There were also two pressboard bookcases that were coming
apart. Normally pressboard furniture is not covered because they have little
structure integrity and are not built to handle being moved. The smaller
bookcase fell apart and was not delivered. It was the only “missing article” we
are aware of. The taller bookcase with the back coming off had a back that we
could not find a match for. Replacing both of these we found commonly available
for about $150.00 had she paid the $800.50 for replacement coverage.

Now lets do the math. Replacement coverage, had she paid the
$800.50, would have covered $100.00 for the replacement glass. Replacement
coverage on the fan and lamp fixture would have covered about $125.00 and the
bookcases would have been replaced for about $150.00. That would have given her
about $375.00 in total, not the $1500.00 suggested. We have already processed
her claim on the basis of her declared coverage at .60 cents per pound and that
calculated to $267.00 coverage. We added $100.00  to compensate her for the inconvenience
giving her a total of $367.00. This was in addition to giving her two months of
storage for free ( saving her $421.85 in storage fees) to satisfy her request
for additional consideration to affordability.

Our in house review of this claim determined that the glass
on the table should have been packed as well as the fan and lamp. The book
cases should not have been accepted for storage. Dr. ****** packed everything
but the damaged goods and the crew went ahead and accepted the unpacked goods
to try to meet the needs of the customer.

In conclusion I would suggest that Dr. ****** suggestion of
$1500.00 value to her claim borders on insurance fraud. The articles in
question don’t amount to one third of her suggested replacement value and had
she paid the additional $800.50 for full value coverage she would have received
about $10.00 more than she did. We were generous to Dr ****** in our
considerations given as we are with all our customers. We have literally
thousands of satisfied customers in our 24 years of operations and almost all
of them are extremely happy with our professional and economical service. Dr.
****** simply wants much more than she paid for.
