Complaint / Review
Quality Move
Moving companies that overcharge, have hidden costs and damage private property

I tried to file a complaint on your website, but was unsuccessful. Hopefully this email will reach an actual person.

Hello, my name is Christopher Marlin, and I have a complaint
about a moving company called, Quality Move.

Let me begin by saying I will try to be as unbiased as
possible and only state the facts.

I moved from Rochelle, IL to
Phoenix, AZ. I hired a moving company called Quality Move out of Chicago. They
quoted me $1922.15 to move my belonging to Arizona.

Once they loaded the truck I was given a bill for $3725.49. As
I was on a time crunch due to a new job, I was forced to pay them $2000.00 up
front and try to come up with the difference somehow. They then charged me
$300.00 a month for storage because they said they were storing it in a climate
controlled facility that had to have access to trucks to be able to back up to
a loading dock. That wasn't true. They stored it in a 10' x 20' self storage
unit in Phoenix, AZ. The unit itself was only $152.00 a month and was NOT
climate controlled.

They charged me a redelivery fee of $1000.00 because they said
they couldn't deliver my belongings and said they returned them to Chicago in
August of when in actuality; they stored them in a facility in Arizona on
July 13. Due to financial hardship and hidden costs and over-charging, I
couldn't afford to have my things delivered until March 01.

When I was able to have my property delivered, I
had to go
to the storage facility myself and help the movers. This is where I saw
the mishandling
of my personal property. The key to the unit was placed under the door
for easy access instead of in a secure location. My washing machine was
placed upside-down on top of my
dryer which damaged the washer causing it to leak out all the oil in the
my guitar was placed under a dresser, my $10,000.00 worth of comic books
boxes were under a dresser, dishes and pictures were broken, and
mattresses and
couch were covered in dirt. I attempted to sell some of my personal
items, but was
unable to due to damages to multiple items to include: a washing machine
(turned upside-down leaking out the oil from the motor and damaging the
/dial), toaster oven (with broken support legs), electric medical muscle
stimulator (doesn't work at all).

This is a copy I wrote to Quality Move:


Please find attached a letter that I filed with complaint.
I am offering you the opportunity to make this right. I do not want a
full refund, just a refund of what you overcharged me. If you are
willing to work with me, I will update my filing with a positive report
reflecting your good business practices and I will convey your eagerness
to satisfy a complaint and make things right.

My calculations show that you overcharged me by:
$1000.00 Redelivery Fee (For redelivery, but you never left the storage with it until March.)
Storage Fee (You charged me $300.00/mo for climate controlled and the
cost was only $152.00/mo for not climate controlled.)
$1038.85 The difference in what you
quoted me and what you charge. Me

Total - $2926.85

If we are unable to come to an agreement, I will also file this same report with the Better Business Bureau.

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.
