Oh wow!  I’m so glad the company is stepping in to at least TRY to make things right.  I know some of your items are irreplaceable, and that just breaks my heart, but at least you have a head honcho advocating for you.  Best of luck, and I sincerely hope things work out in the end.

@WhiteWedding:  That’s great that DH’s company is doing that for you guys!  It’s terrible that this happened and you guys deserve something good to happen!  It definitely seems like a lawsuit is the only way this is going to be settled.  

Have you made a police report?  (Sorry, I’ve read your other threads and don’t remember, altho the police may just say it’s civil but it seems like the movers STOLE from you).

Good thing you kept good records!  I would suggest avoiding contact with the company and allowing the lawyers to handle it.  And don’t settle for less than you deserve!

@WhiteWedding:  That is AWESOME!  Did the company help move you out there in the first place? Or is this just total kindness??

@WhiteWedding:  Hmm, yes I guess they wouldn’t know in what state the items were stolen?  Seems odd…

Oh wow, that’s so wonderful!! I’m SO happy to hear that.  Also, good job on printing out all the paperwork.  With everything being electronic, that’s such a good habbit to have.  I’m looking forward to hearing more updates. 

Sending positive and happy thoughts your way! xoxox

Great news! I also believe that this is something you can also report to the FTC and FBI?

@WhiteWedding:  That’s great that your husbands company is backing you up! I’m sorry if i missed this in the first place, but did they set up the movers for you, or did you choose your own provider? That’s really crappy if they set you up with someone they hadn’t vetted for a cross country move.

I used to coordinate relocations when I worked in HR for a software company, and unfortunately what you’ve described is not uncommon – there are these broker guys sitting around, waiting for someone to contact them for a move, then they sub-contract the move to whoever’s cheapest so they can make the most money off of the move. Some of them are trustworthy and actually deliver, most are pieces of dirt. We had a dedicated moving company that we worked  with 99% of the time, but sometimes I had to get quotes from other companies duento budget or timeline. I am so sorry you got stuck with a dirtbag mover!

I’m starting to think there was a truck wreck or something. In your other post you mentioned that other peoples’ things were mixed in with some of your boxes. Sounds like a mess was made and a hasty clean-up ensued.
