We have had several moving companies over the years and each one seems to be getting worse. When you ask rates the company provides it and then tells you about tipping and says this is what the guys usually get but they leave it up to you. That is not true. We had furniture held hostage till the whole crew got about $150 each and there were four men three of which did not speak english. My friend had to go out and get more money or risk them not unloading everything left on the truck.
Then allied van lines broke many items in the haul from Levittown, Pa. to South Carolina and even broke an item while they were in my house and never said one word . i paid each guy about $75 each or more and provided drinks, like soda etc and then the truck was unloaded in South carolina and the movers there wanted to be paid. What the heck is going on in the moving world?
