Bryan Jones, a retired member of the U.S. Navy, is one of the consumers from 27 different states who filed a complaint against President Moving and Storage LLC.Jones hired the company in August 2017 to help with his move from California to Washington D.C.“I chose them because they were one of the cheaper companies,” Jones said.Jones was initially given a quote of $2,700. Once his belongings were loaded on the truck, the price for the move jumped to $6,700. “They said there were extra items, which didn’t make sense, and that the pool table was too cumbersome. But it was already broken down,” Jones said.Jones attempted to negotiate the price down, but President Moving and Storage LLC would not budge, so Jones handed over the extra $4,000. As of January 25, 2018, nearly five months later, Jones is still waiting for his delivery. The last time he was able to get in contact with President Moving and Storage LLC, was in October 2017 when he was told by the business they were having problems delivering his belongings, but repeatedly told him it would be delivered the next week. “I’m staying with a friend right now till I figure out what’s going on because I don’t have any furniture,” Jones said.BBB continues to receive complaints from consumers throughout the United States.
