All My Sons Moving And Storage - BOL / Items Taken
May 2019. I talked extensively to the representative Tony of Jacksonville, FL regarding my move.
He stated to me that we had a binding contract, additionally he and one of his movers assured me that even though the contract stated binding it would and should have been lowered if the movers got finished "earlier" than what was expected. They (the movers) did finish earlier, and when signing the final delivery BOL it stated that approximately..$350 should have been refunded to the already paid in full amount in which I "shouldn't have ever did". Nonetheless, when I called the office, their representative stated that they viewed the BOL and it stated it was a binding contract. I said, it was but the representative stated "VERBALLY" which is a contract as well, that the amount would be lowered.
Theirs more to the story but I digress. When dealing with Allmysons don't believe the hype of what comes out of the representative mouth.
Buyer Beware, their quick to call and followup when trying to gain your trust & money. However, when attempting to call them about a complaint, don't bet on the same quickness!!
Other Company - No problem here
Everybody has issues,some worse than others.I hired Lonnie from Facebook to more our belongings into storage.Look,I don’t know the guy but he was nothing but respectful to us and with our belongings.I would hire him again even after speaking to him about this site because I didn’t know if he was aware.The other issue I see is how are these complaints monitored.Other than the original from years ago I don’t see anyone else that says he took their money.So what’s your complaint?As far as you know these could all be from the same person.Bottom line,never give money up front,and pay for the job when satisfied.RJ.
CSI Pros - Pass the buck
I initially used Arrow Movers who apparently used CSIPros to move my household. DO NOT EVER use ANY company that deals with CSI Pros. The " pro'' part is a JOKE. Not only did my items arrive 15 DAYS late, they had been mishandled and abused. Many missing and broken items. My claim was rejected because l didn't have " proof" of missing items,ie, photographic evidence that what l claimed was missing was actually missing. On arrival, the foreign driver was extremely rude and claimed he couldn't pull his truck closer to my home to unload and extorted another $150 before he would unload. Apparently he wasn't a very good truck driver as justbecause2 days before the same size truck from another company delivered goods to my next door neighbor. I felt, as an older woman alone, bullied and abused.
NEVER use Arrow, or ANY company that deals with CSI Pros. When l made my claim, even tho l submitted paperwork, all was rejected and each person l spoke with claimed every aspect of the move was '' a different department", so each person l spoke with blamed someone else, passed the buck and diverted my calls. I was given a first class run around. After a couple of months, my claim was " no longer valid" as so much time had passed. I lost treasured objects and memories that can NEVER be replaced, not to mention hundreds of dollars worth of my personal belongings.
CSI Pros? NEVER AGAIN!!!!
SHAME ON YOU!!!
Thumbtack - Employers scammers, they don't care about you
Thumbtack is an utterly irresponsible and reprehensible company that provides no information and takes zero responsibility for their contractors. It should be illegal for them to connect customers to short and long distance movers. Recently, the FBI charged 12 people for moving scams where these criminals will either a). take your stuff hostage and demand more and more money to return your stuff or b). steal your stuff and then auction them off. There are in between outcomes where your stuff will likely be broken by illegitimate movers who will also severely overcharge you. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration keeps a database of movers who are registered and insured with the Federal government. In addition, a U.S. DOT number is required by FMCSA for interstate moves. This is the BASIC minimum step to check for the legitimacy of a purported mover. Otherwise movers who don't meet this basic minimum requirement: a) may not be insured and therefore you may be mislead into believing the insurability of your goods b) may actually NOT be legal to carry out interstate moves and c) are NOT subject to any regulation because you can't file a complaint against them with the FMCSA.
Think about online websites that connect customers to service providers. When you sign up on eBay, you are given hints to how to purchase safely and how to sell safely. Thumbtack provides NO guidance on identifying legitimate moving companies. This is because their business model SUPPORTS predators who prey on unsuspecting or ill advised consumers. Businesses have to pay a fee to see your request and that's how Thumbtack gets paid. They're largely accepting of scammers and shady contractors because they get money, take no responsibility for your pain and loss when in fact, they should be legally liable for not doing background checks on contractors.
I was contacted by a shady person, likely a moving "broker" who gave me a quote for moving interstate. I was asked to pay an upfront 20% deposit (a sign of shady business practices) which I did through PayPal. The moving company name this broker masquerades under is the same name as a legitimate company in another state, which is not unusual as moving companies often do long distance interstate moves. Their phone # also matched the area code of the legitimate moving company (Flag 1 for misdirection).
I then googled the name of the actual moving company, who has a similar name to yet another legitimate transport company (Flag 2 for misdirection). It wasn't until I felt a sense of uncertainty that I looked further and realized that this was one of those shady illegal moving companies that hire a local penske/generic truck, bang up your stuff and possibly hold your items hostage and/or force you to pay "storage fees". They CLAIMED to accept credit card payment, but switched to PayPal or Venmo (Flag 3). I was able to resolve the issue through several calls to PayPal but I had to escalate the issue as they did not believe me and thought I was backing out of a moving contract. I later did some research and it turns out the invoice was illegal because they charged by volume instead of weight (google binding vs. non binding contracts and the legality of quoting by volume vs. weight) so had PayPal not stopped the transaction I could have sought back my deposit by other means.
I contacted Thumbtack and sent them PROOF with screenshots. The moving company has ALSO been reviewed under Yelp with complaints that Thumbtack referred them. This is 99% Thumbtack's responsibility and yet they don't care. This individual is still on Thumbtack with fake 100% positive reviews. There have been other reviewers stating that these scammers just change to another name on Thumbtack even if action forces them to close down one account. In the end Thumbtack proposed a solution to connect me to this shady individual summarizing that I was "not comfortable pursuing services." This is highly misleading and has NOTHING TO DO with personal feelings or being comfortable. There were CLEAR signs and proof their contractor was shady and illegal. Not only that, it is dangerous to clearly disclose to a shady individual, "your customer is uncomfortable doing business with you." Who knows if these individuals will retaliate or get revenge, GIVEN that my original and new moving addresses were given to them. I advise anyone considering moving to NOT use Thumbtack and instead use OFFICIAL and FEDERAL government licensed companies and most of all, do research. Thumbtack doesn't care if you lose your valuable belongings, get terrorized by scammers or lose money. They will keep a band of thieves if it serves them their dinner on a silver platter at the expense of your WHOLE LIFE.
TOTAL SCAMMERS .... I am still waiting for my Furniture from this company !
They promise me a DIRECT DELIVERY, on Friday Sept 7th, (From Weehawken NJ to New Haven CT) I still have not received my furniture as of yet. I gave a deposit of $721.00 to a sale Rep name Ron 855-835-9588 who quoted me a price of $1987.00 for a one bedroom move !
The day of the move a driver name Chris, who was driving Enterprise truck name Chris, has called me to ask, "do I want my furniture? " as if he is holding it hostage and must give him the ransom money which far exceeds the price I was quoted-
This has been a night mare !

Uship - Poor service
I received a email fro Uship as my move was underway and the driver was on their way to perform pick up that a review was being performed and asked for information. I provided info about my move sent in the email, completed the pickup with my driver.
Then I receive a email stating that per my request my move was canceled.
I never canceled anything. So now im out 753 which has not been returned to me after several attempts UShip has not made any effort to rectify this situation by simply reversing the cancellation and reinstating my move.

All of his belongings was inventoried and taken by truck to a secured storage facility at 17325 Euclid Ave. 44112. Mr. McGhee sighed the inventory forms and was present doing the process.
Mr. McGhee's items were taken to our storage facility, the evicting party is responsible for the cost of (1)month of storage. In addition, the evicting party is responsible for allowing the evicted tenant an opportunity to retrieve their items from storage within the first 30 days of storage. Mr.
McGhee never called inquiring about his belongings. After 90 days if no payment has been made by the evicted person, the items would be liquidated. This is the first time hearing from Mr. McGhee almost a year later.
Ohio Moving & Preservation did a job that they were hired to do by Davenport Financial. Nothing was stolen, broken, everything was taken to storage, and stayed in our storage facility for many months. We never heard from Mr. McGhee until March 8th, 2017.
