Complaints About NY and CA Moving Companies

I want to warn Thrifty fun members about these two movers. They cost my daughter around $8,000 in losses to her in her move from Brooklyn, NY to California. This is her report to those in authority, and she got nowhere. The moving industry is unregulated and you are at their mercy.

Anything she had in the original boxes, like her stereo receiver were missing. Assumed to be taken to sell at flea markets.

Her goods were damaged, even though they were packed by the movers. She is a pretty, single girl ,was alone in her apartment and she was harassed. Her Victorian hat collection was missing among other things. They refused to look for it. It was probably put in someone else's storage locker or sold. She did not know that her goods would be given to the movers located in California. Essentially, they gave her goods away. The Better Business Bureau and Chamber of Commerce couldn't help us, all they could do was put on their site that these movers had a complaint against them. We had no luck with arbitration or coverage with insurance.

We have all of this documented and pictures of everything broken and the data on the missing items. Beware, these are crooks! I hope I can help all of you from being ripped off by them.

Quick Transportation, Inc., 1208 Arques Avenue, #108-1, Sunnyvale, CA 94085 (408)733-8300 Fax: (866)826-6781, US DOT# 1298991, MC-504462, CAL PUC# T190018, Attn: Mac Ischanov, Manager.

We have spoken to a gentleman here in town who used to take these things to court as an owner of a moving company as an expert witness and he said they are definitely wrong and can be sued successfully. We are going to do, but that will take time, trouble and money and we want others to avoid using them. They are the ultimate in being dishonest!

My friend and her husband had to move from NY to GA because of his new job. She told me over the phone about the horrors they had experienced with a moving company. The company damaged a lot of their furniture, and they filed a law suit against them. I'll have to find out if it's the same company out of New York City.

Thank you for warning the Thriftyfun members.

My sympathies for your daughter. If you really want to get the word out about these companies...go to PlanetFeedback.com. This is a site where you can register complaints or even praises about a company. You type in what you want to say and then they redo your letter. If you want to keep it the way you wrote it, you just click on the right button and it'll be printed your way. They keep this letter on the net for up to a year and even send one to the companies that you complain about. I had problems with Dish Network and put a complaint letter on this site. Within two weeks, I got all the money back that they owed me, plus a letter of apology from their main headquarters. But I still won't deal with Dish. You have nothing to lose, and might even gain something from it...like the money they owe your daughter! Try it...PlanetFeedback.com

Your daughter needs to contact the Attorney Generals office for both states. Give them as much information as possible regarding these companies. Consumer Affairs Divisions are put in to place by each state to protect consumers from exactly these kinds of issues. Your daughter can obtain this information on line. Just do a google search for California government and New York government. When you get to each States home page, look for Attorney General's office or do a search. They can and do assist in a great capacity. They will help her resolve this issue. Best of luck.

This seems to be problem with all moving companies, you usually have to watch them, when you move. If you can, fit anything special like small collectibles, antiques, favorite things try to take them in your car. My sister moved down south and my sister in law moved up North. My sister lost a lot of baby clothes and baby thing's and my sister in law lost a Grandfather clock. Sorry, I do not understand how they get away with this.All I can do is say call the Better Business Bureau and complain, complain, complain. P.S You could rent a small trailer also for some things. dar

I've heard from a friend of mine that Quick Transportation is the worst moving company ever. He also had bad experience with them, but didn't have time to bring them to the court.

I read a couple of years ago - that what has happened to your daughter and others is an ongoing problem. I guess you really have to check out the moving service before hand - alot of the companies - I don't remember specific names - were also not releasing the moved person(s) goods from their trucks unless another fee was paid! That was one of the problems - I can't even imagine that a company could get away these unethical, illegal - I would think - practices.
