Additional Notes

Complaint: On April 22nd, the company moved our household goods from ** ****** ***** ** *********** ** to ** ***** ****** ** *********** *** During that move the movers significantly damaged our Cherry China Chest (approximate replacement value $1,500). After 3 emails contacts to **** ******* and ****** they still haven't moved further to resolve this damage. All I get back is we are working on it.

Desired Settlement: Refund of damage to replace the China Chest for $1,500

Business Response:


Ms. ****:  We had forewarned Mr. ********* that it would be a week or so until our repairman would get to **********.


As you can see by his May 16 email to **** ******* the matter was resolved although he then mentioned new issues.

Consumer Response: I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me. 
Yes the issues were after the fact of the delivery as I explained to the company but........the process of this move required my wife and I
to actively locate where the furniture was to be placed.  With a charge of over $100 an hour, we mistakenly rushed this process to avoid
added charges.  In addition, the movers were called to go to another job and were moving our move along to make that appointment.
Only after were they notified that that job was cancelled did they go into slow down mode.

Finally, I paid this bill immediately and yet it took over 3 weeks to get someone out to repair the damage that the movers made.
