Additional Notes

Complaint: Phoenix Movers provided moving services to my new residence that resulted in my brand new file cabinet getting dropped on the side and broken, and unable to open the file cabinet drawers. I had to pry the file cabinet open in order to access invoices and receipts for furniture to verify items received. The manager came out to access the damage to the file cabinet, and I provided the business with a copy of the cost of the item for replacement($329- ***** 36"W 2-Drawer Lateral File Black-******.com order). The business initially offered to provide compensation totaling($175) which would not cover the cost of replacement. The office manager has been promising me for the past few weeks that she would send me an insurance claim form but has not done so. I call the business daily for follow up but receive not response.

Desired Settlement: File cabinet to be replaced. It has been over a month now since I've moved and I am still without a filing cabinet.

Business Response:

Hi ******,
I received this complaint follow up.
We did try to reimburse *** ********** for his file cabinet, the cabinet was not a brand new cabinet and we felt the offering of $175 was satisfactory.
I let *** ********** know that I would file a claim with our insurance which has been done but unfortunately it is not a fast process.  I will follow up with our agency tomorrow.
Thank you,
Jen E*****

 Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because the compensation that was suggested does not cover the cost of replacement for the damaged item. As dually noted, I also have not been contacted by the insurance company to follow up on the claim. I have requested the information from Phoenix Movers in various emails but have not received a response from them concerning that. I highly doubt that it takes the insurance company well over 2 months before they process a claim.


***** **********

Business Response:

Dear *** **********,
We understand your concern and apologize for the inconvenience we may have caused.
We have contacted our insurance company regarding this situation that occurred with your items and are still waiting for their response.
We are doing everything we can on our end to successfully resolve the situation as soon as possible. 
We really appreciate your patience.
Kindest regards,
Anna H*****

 Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because I was advised back in July by Jennifer that the insurance company was contacted then. It is 3+ months later with still no resolution. This is highly beyond unacceptable and needs to be resolved within the next 96 hours. I have been waiting patiently LONG enough.
