I am sure your things will be found. What a headache! I definitely thikn you should demand to speak to a manager and threaten legal action if you don’t get an ETA for your belongings. Moving across country is huge and it can definitely take time and delays, since they stop along the way with other people’s things and pick other things up. I’m so sorry you have to go through this headache, but stay positive your things will get there (and soon I Hope!)

Unfortunately, people rarely resort to BBB with complaints anymore, it takes too long. Have you tried soing a google search on the company, get reviews that way. Many things can happen with moving companies, trucks break down, get into accidents, roads close for whatever reason. It sucks that they aren’t getting back to you, that would worry me. Definitely seek legal advice and find out your options.

OMG this is horrible. I hope you’ve found some resolution in the meantime!

Thanks, I’ve finally gotten someone to answer my calls. Our stuff is “supposed” to be here tomorrow morning. Let’s hope it goes smoothly and they don’t demand more money (our load was super small, so there’s no way, but movers are shady) and that there is little damage. This past Friday made six weeks since they picked it up.

Look over your contract, you might be able to file a lawsuit in small claims court for breach of contract (if moving costs were under $5000). Otherwise just threaten with a suit and see if you can get a major discount.

Glad you have gotten an answer, will check on this tomorrow and see how it went! Are you excited that your stuff is “finally” there?

You’re such a sweetie!!
Well, their time frame came and went… I finally got a text that they had “mechanical” issues and are running about 3 hours behind. It’s just one thing after another… my hubby took the morning off from work to be here, and now he’s had to call and ask for the rest of the day.
I’ll keep everyone updated! I’m sure you’ll hear the squeals from here if it actually gets here today!

Fingers are crossed for you!
When you get your stuff, I still think you should leave reviews on websites where they are listed. No one should have to go through this! Your input might help another person from this seriously awful service. I mean, it’s moving. Pick stuff up at Point A. Take it to Point B. Am I missing something here?

I would still hire a lawyer! That is uncalled for. 6 weeks?!?!?!?! It does not take them 6 weeks to pack up and move your stuff! Hope you get all of your belongings, if you get any! Prayers!

OMG no kidding! Your husband should offer to go and pick it up…. wonder what their excuse would be then? You two have a lot of patience and they’re lucky they don’t have my ex-FI they’d be strung up by their feet!
Also, if you had to buy the stuff you needed because it was in the moving truck, they should re-imburse you. You wouldn’t have had to buy anything if you had your things on time.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulates interstate movers and you can file a complaint against them online. http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/forms/public/com-com-form.htm. Please file one so that other people are aware of them in the future!

Movers are awful. Here’s what you should do – call them and tell them you will sue them in small claims court.

I would be calling the police and reporting my things stolen. That’s essentially what they’ve done.

Refuse to pay the amount since they violated their own contract. Find out who these people report to and nail them for this deeply uncool behavior.
