Complaint Detail(s)

4/25/2016 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: A move was completed on 31 March 2016 through this company. During this move, the company acted unprofessionally, for example: Severe lack of communication before move - company refused to take any planning actions until a few days before pack up. I scheduled pack up and delivery dates months in advance and they tried to pack more than a week early and delivered late. Our loading crew (consisting of **** and *******, performed in *******) was rude, unprofessional, unorganized, and insulting to my family - insulted my fiance and refused to perform services on several items because they were 'breakable' and 'not worth enough'. They packed all items in an unprofessional, total unsatisfactory manner resulting in many damaged items and packed half of items (many fragile) in oversized 'wardrobe boxes' which are designated solely for clothing items and not standard goods. Our belongings were not wrapped with any sort of care or protection. The total pack up process lasted more than 13 hours for a small apartment due to lack of planning and professionalism. The company failed to maintain accountability for my items during the move (left unattended and unsupervised for two hours in common areas) and failed to inventory items during the move as required. Not all items arrived at the final destination. Finally, the company attempted to coerce me to allow them access to my apartment without my presence.

Desired Settlement: Response from company over policies and procedures, and to correct deficiencies with the moving team mentioned who insulted and attempted to coerce me to reduce the security of my apartment/demand access to my household without my permission or attendance.

Business Response:

Mr. ********,


We sincerely apologize for the poor service you received on you recent relocation. We pride ourselves on providing outstanding customer service and we will use this bad experience to improve.

That said, on interstate moves such as these we are often left at the mercy of the local moving companies from which we hire labor to pack and load shipments. In your case, ***** * was our driver and the help that he hired came from the local agent. They were background checked, but apparently lacked both customer service and packing skills. Again, we apologize that problems in our industry impacted your moving experience.

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint.  For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below.

The response indicated to the letter as noted is both lazy and cowardly. It is clear that no effort was placed in the writing of this message, nor into researching the claims made in my document. Furthermore, the letter that was mailed as indicated in the complaint has also received no response. The response indicates zero reference as to who the packers worked for to allow for follow on action - when they arrived at my residence with the driver, they introduced themselves as "Daly Moving". I require additional information other than what is listed so I can follow up with the "local agent" since Daly claims it was not their employee. 

Additionally, the response's brevity shows additional lack of care with these issues. The response provides virtually no effort in resolving the claims indicated. I am most dissatisfied with the nature of this response and request both additional information and action.

(Attachment, full letter mailed to company address as noted).

Additional Notes

Complaint: Client was contracted by the company I work for to move my personal items across the country as part of a corporate relocation. My marble table was broken in-transit. While I understand things break and accidents happen, the storage crate it was packed in was damaged. I documented, took pictures, sent written notifications and was more than flexible with replacement and refund procedures for resolution. Today is a year to the date from the original furniture pick-up date and the issue has still not been resolved. Business practices, level of professionalism and customer service are unacceptable.

Desired Settlement: A full 8-months after moving my household, this company finally kept an arranged appointment to pick up the table to evaluate repairs. Upon doing so, there has been no communication or status updates over the last two months since my follow up on 9/6/13. After being more than flexible with the process, I now expect nothing less than full compensation for the item damaged by Daly Movers.

Business Response:

We apologize for the unreasonable delay in settling this claim. We were attempting to have this item repaired, but being  unable to find a decent repair facility in New York, we decided to have the item shipped back to California to have it looked at by a marble firm we have done work with in the past and trust. The shipper was advised of this process, and has understandably run out of patience. Unfortunately, our firm is unable to repair the piece because critical pieces are missing. We will therefore cash the shipper out. To that end we are currently securing several replacement estimates on which this settlement will be based. We anticipate full and complete claim settlement within several weeks of this response dated  1/27/14.

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint.  For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below.

[This business does not meet the standards of BBB Quality. Through the tactless management of my customer claim, Daly Movers has demonstrated a gross failing of both performance and integrity. 

My customer concerns have not been followed up in a timely manner. In response to my BBB customer claim, there is a serious lack of urgency by this business to resolve an issue that occurred over a year ago. While Daly Movers confirms there has been an "unreasonable delay in settling this claim,” they again fail to outline a deadline to resolution. As indicated in their statement "we anticipate settlement within several weeks,” the schedule toward resolution is inappropriately vague.
This company broke my table in transit and rather than accommodate the customer to replace it, they have demonstrated a pattern for disregarding service to the customer.
To review the order of events: damaged upon arrival, photos were sent to the business that clearly illustrate that there were critical missing pieces (marble churned to dust) prior to the repair measures they outline (sample photo attached). These pictures show a crate surrounding the packed table was also broken, with the protecting wood splintered of the frame.  Opening the crate upon arrival, their movers were also witnesses to this. 
Rather than compensate for damages at that time, it was the business’ chosen path to attempt to resolve the matter by fixing the table. Yet, they are a moving company who failed to pick up the table until over 8 months from the time when the piece was delivered.  On 8/22, they chose to only take the table top for repair (not the base) and now 5 months later state they are going to get estimates on the value of the item. However, the replacement value of a table cannot be fairly estimated with only half the table (table top). A picture of the tables designer base (which they do not have) is attached.
This business failed to notify me that they received the broken table, communicate their measures to resolve the matter and has lost my trust in following through on compensation for an item they broke. The BBB accreditation of this business needs to be reconsidered.]


**** ******

Business Response: We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience we have caused. Our intentions were honest and honorable but for a variety of reasons we failed to resolve the claim in an expedient manner. After speaking with the marble company we use- Chiarini Marble and Stone --(one of the best in the nation and the reason why we shipped the piece back to Ca)  they reported that the $2000 replacement cost is reasonable. Therefore, we will issue payment in that amount in our next check run. After thirty five years of exemplary customer service, please do not judge us by this mistake. **** ******, President, Daly Movers.

Consumer Response:

Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and find that this resolution would be satisfactory to me.  I will wait for the business to perform this action and, if it does, will consider this complaint resolved.
