“I realized it right away. The fellows put everything on the truck and then demanded another $1000 to actually move it and unload it.

I called the police who said…”this is a civil matter” and did nothing.

So I either paid or they would put all of my belongings in their “storage facility” at $150 per day + I would still have to pay the new delivery charges.”

“Great, timely advice, Diane. I especially like, “… when you call note whether they answer with their business name or just a drowsy sounding, ‘Hello?’” Anyone who answers a business this way leads me to be suspect.”

“If you generally want to get from A to B and be able to C all your stuff when you get there, get ye to the U-Haul depot, and rent the Big Van. After securely loading and boxing and blocking and bracing the priceless treasures in this life that you cannot live without, fire up the beast and put your GPS-thingy on the dash, and hit the open highway.
Well, that method works if you’re in the continental US, for the most part, and you have the stamina and motel funds to make the trek cross-country, and you don’t break an axle, or something.

If you HAVE to trust your belongings to strangers, do some of that internet research, licensed, bonded, insured, all that jazz, and thoroughly review any service contract prior to signing, and don’t be afraid to ask some questions about their control processes to prevent people’s stuff from getting pilfered en route, or held hostage on the other end. I think FedEx ground and UPS can handle pallets, if you can get your loot in shipper boxes, banded, sealed, and security-taped, chances are that it will show up unharmed. Oversize pieces, exotic furniture, so forth and so on? Well…you’re still trusting it to strangers, and it might get dropped, or vanish unexpectedly if it’s really high-dollar. I think there is insurance available to cover any losses, but your mileage may vary.
The best way, still, is to load it in the van yourself, and unload it out of the van yourself. Anything less is a coin toss.”

“Great advice! Use your resources in full to thoroughly check any movers, storage facilities, even the areas where you wish to move. Even some ‘landlords’ have been known to con people.
