Of the eight professional moves I have completed, this one was the worst. The move was from a house in Atlanta to an apartment and storage in North Carolina. The move was supposed to be a one and half day pack and one and half day load with a Saturday delivery. We worked hard to segregate and label the two different groups but they still messed it up. The driver did not want to deliver on Saturday so she used extra staff to pack in less than a day and loaded until 11 at night the next day. She said if we did not take the delivery on Friday it would be Monday before it would be delivered. Because of the extra staff and the fact they did not speak English, it was impossible to monitor them. They packed lamps for the apartment in boxes labeled for apartment and the shades in boxes labeled for storage. Similar event for my computer – CPU and monitor ended up in the apartment and cords ended up in storage. We grouped our Playstation with the TV for the apartment and oddly enough it and our VCR did not make it. The loading crew barely spoke English and was not friendly. In the middle of loading the truck, the company called to say they misquoted the move and needed more money despite the fact my wife had packed the wardrobes and much of our stuff was already in plastic totes.
Be warned about companies who do not honor their quotes and modify schedules for the convenience of their employees rather than their customers.
