My Move - Binding Contract
My Move - Binding Contract
It started with Paul Champion, he gave me a "Binding Moving Estimate" and I paid my $700 deposit. I thought all was good until it came to moving day. They were to pick up on 9/25 or 9/26. I received a call from Juan (the driver) on 9/24 stating he would pick up on 9/25. But when 9/25 things changed. I received a call from Juan (the driver), he stated he was running late & wanted to know if my Storage would stay open later in order for him to pick up because he was running late. He called @ 2:21 pm & was 5 hrs away. All along I would remind them that my Storage closes @ 7:00 pm. There was no way he was going to make it. He then stated he couldn't pick up on 9/26 because he had obligations. I told him I was an obligation too & I had a binding contract that stated it would be picked up on 9/25 or 9/26. That's when my nightmare began. Since the $700 cleared my bank, I was unable to talk with Paul, I left several phone messages & sent him an email. I received no response. I finally talked with a dispatcher (I think) they would never give there title Ben Wilson that was on 9/25. He said that to give him 10-15 mins to try & work it out. He did call back & told me he was going to training that takes 1 1/2 hrs, in the meantime he would have someone working on the situation & once he was out of training he would call me back. HaHa that was a joke. He never called & when I would call and leave messages he wouldn't return them. No surprise to me @ this point. I finally realized they were giving me the run around. I had to call the main number & I would talk with a customer service agent Juan. He would tell me that the dispatcher Ben Wilson would call me once he finished with the 2 clients & this was @ 9:00 am. Another joke!!! I never received that call. I called the main # & Juan answered again. He told me that he was going to take control & that he would try for Sun or Mon. Another joke. I did finally receive a call from Tyler Thomas (not sure his title either) but he did say that it's set for Sat or Sun. Hurray but that came too soon. I should have waited because it changed again. on 9/27 a female called & said that my move was going to be 9/30 or 10/1. Okay. I still didn't get excited because they way this has been going I figured it wouldn't stay. I was right. I received a call from Juan (the customer service) stating that I was going to have to pay more money that they couldn't do the move for the price I was quoted. Really ? I could not believe what I was hearing. He said we will refund your $700 to you if that is what you want. I told him I have a binding contract that states my move is $2000. This company shows it a At. Here I am stuck trying to find a new company @ the last minute. I am leaving on Monday Oct 1 and they knew this all along. Every time I spoke with Juan, I reminded him. So now I am waiting to see if & when I get my $700 back. I told him I need that money to hire a new mover so I want it asap. He said it would take 1 - 3 days. With my experience that I have had with this company, I'm not holding my breath! IF ALL POSSIBLE DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!! Save yourself from stress & heartache.
