We contracted Best Movers of California on June 21 to load our household goods and move them from Hollister, Ca to Hendersonville, NC. We were told by scheduling the move 6 weeks in advance that we would get our belongings in NC within a week of our first delivery date. We scheduled the pickup for Aug 4 but they came 1 day late. Our first available delivery date was Aug 13. It is now September 19 and there has been no effort in the movement. We have called at least 3 times each week and each time we got the response from a rep "loading and moving in a few days". All of these were false as we followed up to see if the goods were loaded. Each time "in a few days". We were even told that a truck was leaving for NC but we ran out of room. Then another rep said that no truck was going to NC since August 5. Who is lying? What are we to believe? Now we get hangups when we call or put on hold for 30 minutes with no response. We have emailed and left messages for them to return calls. Never have had a returned call. We recently got a message on Monday saying that they are closed due to Jewish Holiday but we learned that was false. The same response came on Tuesday even though the message said Monday. False again. We are getting no communication from them now after numerous false statements and lies. When we try to leave a message now, the phone mailbox is "full".???We feel they are holding our goods hostage as we have paid for the entire shipment ($9000) in advance. We can not get ahold of the head of the company to get the ball rolling. We have all our valuables (medicine, documents, furniture, clothes etc) in a warehouse (we think) in Santa Clara with no effort to move them to NC. We have been living with nothing for 6 weeks now and it is totally unacceptable. We have contacted the California Office of the Attorney General and the US Department of Transportation and the local agents for Best Movers and Nationwide Top Movers in NC and the only suggestion is to sue both companies. But that will not get our belongings here ASAP. We are in the process of filing a claim against the DOT of each company with the intention of getting a full refund and getting our belongings shipped to NC. How can these companies be allowed to lie on the phone and show disrespect on the phone with hangups and false messages? We will also contact their insurance companies to file a claim against them.
Told on June 21 that by scheduling this 6 weeks in advance that there would be no problem getting our belongings 1 week after 1st available date. Not true!No delivery after 44 days.Hangups on phone.No communication with transportation manager.Time limit is past due.
30 days are up. Lies on the phone or no communication. Poor service.
False statements and messages on phone. In a few days does not mean in a month or longer.
Complete mickey mouse outfit. I had trust in people but with these people I have no faith in and I will do my best to advertise their extremely poor service.

I think our stuff is being held hostage in the same location. We have been waiting for over a month for Nationwide Top Movers to bring our stuff to Virginia from California and they do all the shady disrespectful unethical things you have described above. We should connect and see if we can share resources, find out what the real story is behind these con artists who are posing as moving company. I just recently learned that they not only received an F from the Better Business Bureau, they actually lost their BBB certification and have been hiding this fact from their victims (e.g. their "customers"). This company has put my family through hell and they need to be held accountable for their lies and for their utter disrespect for paying customers! I am so furious with these people right now! These are the shadiest people I have ever dealt with in my life. All I want are my belongings back. I will do anything to hold them accountable and get my stuff back.
Join our community and start resolving disputes — it's free and fast.
Let the PeopleClaim community help resolve your dispute.
Get Started: Review the case, ask the parties questions, add comments, then
submit your suggestion for settlement.
PeopleClaim.com is a member-supported online dispute resolution system designed
to settle most common disputes quickly and efficiently—without mediation,
arbitration, or litigation. We provide a secure, confidential negotiation channel
where both sides can review facts, communicate with each other, propose terms, make
counter-offers, and reach resolution. Both parties control their side of the process
and avoid the uncertain outcome and costliness of legal action. PeopleClaim.com
is a facilitating channel: we take neither side in disputes and do not involve ourselves
in any aspect of negotiation between parties. We are supported by member dues and
non-member use fees, rather than sponsorship or advertising.
There are four steps to the PeopleClaim system: 1) Stating your complaint; 2) Making
a claim; 3) Negotiating Terms; 4) Settlement. We help you at every step of the process,
providing smart features that make your case understandable and actionable. A clear
statement of your complaint allows the other party to identify you and your problem,
and respond in an appropriate and timely way. Transforming your complaint into a
claim means establishing terms of settlement that can be acted on by the other party.
We help you organize and present your terms to encourage response and action. PeopleClaim’s
secure online channel lets you and the other party negotiate terms in confidence.
Our automated email system tracks progress, advising both sides of changes in terms,
revised offers, and any other claim-related activity. This helps the negotiation
proceed smoothly with minimum time slippage. Settlement occurs when either side
accepts an offer. Generally speaking, when executed by both sides, the PeopleClaim
online Agreement is considered a legally binding contract.
Remember, we provide a channel and structure but we stay out of your business. The
substance and outcome of your claim is entirely up to you and the other party.
There are many possibilities. We designed PeopleClaim to be affordable enough to
be used for common consumer complaints, but powerful enough to handle larger disputes.
Disagreements with retailers, product defects, and poor service of all kinds are
common claim types. But you could also use PeopleClaim to deal with problems between
individuals, or to register a complaint in a public advocacy cause. The mechanism
of stating a complaint and filing a claim is applicable to a wide variety of situations,
and we expect claimants will be inventive in their use of the system. Naturally,
in complex and large-stakes matters, or where a party is looking to establish legal
precedent, there is no substitute for professional counsel. If you think your problem
may be too big or too difficult to resolve via one-to-one online negotiation, or
have any doubts about PeopleClaim’s applicability, you should ask a lawyer.
would you like to add any comment or solution?
