Complaint: I understood that I was insuring my most valuable posessions. Prior to the move, I made them aware of the value both sentimental and monitary of the items . I was not aware that what I was paying for was not actually insyrance at all. They were paid an extra 300 $ to insure these items. Both items are damaged. They claim that I only insured one out of two( they are identical). I have come to find out that the mover , who is protecting his owninterests, not a neutral 3 rd party insurance company collected the money, misrepresented what I was buying, damaged both stoves and have left me with no recourse. Also, they were the only ones present when these incidents occurred and they claim they were broken before. I have photos of them intact. t=This is a complete scam. The bill has been paid in full including a 300 $ tip because I was not made aware until after the fact.
Desired Settlement: repair or replace. I also should receive back the money I paid for insurance since this wasn't insured, no one outside their company can asses the damages and they have every reason to protect their interests.
We believe there is a misunderstanding by Mrs. **** with regards to the Valuation Option chosen for the move. Moving companies are not licensed to sell insurance. We are able to offer "valuation" to our shippers which allows them to value their items against loss or damage. No where on any document or contract printed or presented by Exodus Moving & Storage, Inc. is the word "insurance" printed. They may choose to value their entire shipment (called Option A Valuation by Exodus) or select up to 10 items (called Option B Valuation by Exodus). If neither Option A or B are chosen, then the entire shipment is covered by Option C which values each piece at 60 cents per pound per item. When either Option A or B is chosen, Exodus reserves the right to attempt repair on any damaged item before replacement.

Complaint: I was given an estimate for movi** my household furniture that came to a total of $2250. The total actual charges came to about $3350. Over $1100 about more than the original estimate. They tried to charge me $400 for boxes, when in reality it was only $169 worth of boxes at best. That was resolved, but I still ended up payi** 40% more than the estimate. When the movers came to pick up my items they did not have (nor were they intendi** to put down) floor protection. They did put down protection eventually on the hardwood only. At some point one of the movers tracked grease onto the carpet. I was notified by my mom who was watchi**. I hired *** ***** to get the stain out for a cost of $82. I notified my contact of the issue. He then later called me to tell me the "other side of the story" which was that the movers blamed my parents for the grease on the carpet. I talked again to my parents who were adamant that they did not track the grease and that the story the movers told was incorrect and had no substaniati** evidence as the movers claimed (there was no "grease" near where my parents parked their car or on their shoes). The grease incident, and havi** to have the grease cleaned immediately meant the movers had to move the furniture ASAP. My mom was concerned that the movers seemed to be movi** slowly (she has handled over 10 moves in her life time and so she is knowledagable). The movers charged me for all of their lunch breaks and "take 5 breaks" at a rate of $149/hr. I was charged an enormous amount for travel time alone as well by the movers. I personally can drive to and from the locations in 1.25 hours (that is to their place of business). I understand the movi** truck must go slow and that there is traffic at times and that was accounted for in the original estimate with 2hrs each way alloted. However an additional 3 hrs of "travel time" was charged at $149/hr. Consideri** the time the movers were scheduled to arrive was such to avoid any and all traffic (10 am) and the movers should have been finished well before the start of rush hour per the estimate for returni** to their place of business, the travel time charges were excessive. Finally, duri** the move of putti** furniture into my home, scratches and dents were noted on items, which I am aware is to be expected when movi**. However, the mover dropped a dresser duri** the move and damaged the banister on the stairs. They have agreed to fix the banister. My complaint is that I was expecti** to pay close to $2250 for my move. Had I known that the move was goi** to cost $3350, I would have moved my thi**s myself. I personally moved 6 full car loads of items (includi** TVs, computers, etc) so that the movers would not have to move as much, in hopes of keepi** costs down (and those items that I moved were part of the original estimate). Granted I added a snow blower to the load after the estimate, the 6 car loads of thi**s I moved should have more than compensated for that. I understand that estimates are just that, estimates. I understand that circumstances can add additional charges to thi**s. However, 40% more than the original estimate is absurd. Damage to carpet duri** a move (which should have been protected in the first place by the movers is absurd). And damagi** a banister by droppi** furniture should not have occured (and I find it especially disturbi** that I was not aware of this until my friend pointed out that the movers dropped the furniture and damaged the banister). The movers failed to inform me of the damage they did, which I find unprofessional.
Desired Settlement: I believe that the amount I should be charged should not have exceeded 20% of the estimate as I should not be charged for breaks, lack of carpet protection, carpet damage, excessive travel time, slow movi**. The estimate was $2250 and there was a charge of $169 for boxes. 20% of $2250 is $450 which is an additional 3 hrs of labor. My total amount charged should not have exceeded $2250 + $169 + $450 = $2869. I demand the difference in what I paid (about $3350) vs. $2869 to be refunded to me on my credit card. I believe that is a fair and reasonable amount. I still also insist the bansiter be repaired of course at their cost.
Our owner, **** ****, called and spoke to ******** on 5/12/14 about the move. They arra**ed a meeti** for 5/27/14 at 8:30 a.m. to have the banister repaired and discuss the estimate so they could reach an agreement. We were surprised to have ******** agree to the meeti** and then file a BBB complaint when we were worki** to fix her concerns.
