Complaint: Bernardo Moving Storage was hired to move our household in Aug 2013. We obtained a "Not to Exceed Proposal" from them on 6/22/13. In the proposal, the items are listed below: Local transportation & Labor (2 van & 6 Men) $2,116 (charge we agree to pay) Insurance (optional) $ 124 (charge we agree to pay) Cartons, Packing and unpacking (based on the actual amt used) $1,413 (charges only incurred partial of $860) Total Not to Exceed Cost $3,529 We scheduled them to come and pack our household prior to the move, however, the packing staff only packed kitchen and garage, the rest of the household and paintings were not packed. On the moving day, they brought 2 vans and 7 pple (which was not our request to add more pple), and they helped to pack up some items that were not packed on the packing day. At the end of the moving day, they gave me a bill of $4,375 stating that they incurred more time than anticipated. In their bill, the actual packing labor and boxes only totaled to $860 (less than estimated $1,413 since they didn't pack as much as we wanted them to). ***** ***** stated that they incurred more time than originally anticipated. I disagree because they are charging the actual packing labor and material fees per carton on the day of move and they can't double charge the time. The fact that they had not packed all my household prior to the move, so they had to incur more time to pack them on the day of the move is not customer's fault. Therefore, I disagree to pay more than what it was stated on the original "not to exceed quote". Further, their owner ***** ***** told me that I can keep the moving pads with a deposit if I need them for a couple of months during remodeling, however, in their final bill it became "rental fee" of $250. I called ***** stating that I would not want them if they charge me rental fees. She said fine then return them to us. So I did it within a week. After I dropped the pads off, on my way to work, I called ***** to let her know that the pads were dropped off. She said "you can go to the front office to ask for $250 check" I told her that i was on my way to work and asked her to mail it to me. Now they denied this and i never received the refund. Further, they are extremely unprofessional in handling this matter. They chose to ignore my voice mail and emails. I had to go through my credit card company to dispute the charges. I was hoping that they would be more coorporate with customers.
Desired Settlement: I agree to pay for the following that were actually incurred and agreed upon: $2,116 labor and transportation $ 124 insurance $ 465 packing labor $ 366 packing materials $ 30 sales tax $ 133 deposit for wardrobe which i should get refund upon returning them $3,234 total amount What they actually charged: $4,375 total charged to my credit card (which i am disputing) $1,141 Expected refund
Business Response: Although we do not agree with the explanation given by Ms. ******* regarding the rational for disputing her credit card charge, we chose not challenge that dispute and $831.94 was removed from our account by the credit card company on 8/27/2013.
The rental charge for the pads that were left the day of the move was to cover in part the cost of replacing those pads on the truck with new pads. Although I do not believe this charge is unreasonable I will refund that rental amount.
The wardrobe deposit will be returned to Ms. ******* when she returns those wardrobes to us. Those are also equipment that we use on our trucks and had to be replaced as well. She was informed that the deposit would be returned when she returns them or we would charge a $50 p/u charge if we have to send someone to pick them up.
We will refund $383.00 if she returns the items above and $333.00 if we p/u the wardrobes. If the wardrobes are not returned we will refund $250.00
BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved
