BEWARE OF BEKINS VAN LINES. THEY WILL NOT COMPLETE THE MOVE AFTER BEING PAID, THEY WILL DAMAGE YOUR FURNITURE, THEY WILL REFUSE TO PROVIDE YOU WITH A CLAIM FORM. DESPITE THIER PROMISES, THEY HAVE AVOIDED ANY FURTHER CONTACT WITH ME OR THEIR AFFILIATE.

USE ANOTHER CARRIER THAT WILL PROVIDE SERVICE AND NOT CHEAT YOU!

In June, your local agent quoted me a total moving fee of $770, which was also supposed to include any travel time. This move was actually less mileage than the May move. You charged me an additional $77.50 which is not specified on your invoice. Although I paid the entire fee, I called you the same day to dispute this additional fee. You said it was because your people spent 4 1/2 hours which was a fabrication. Although you told me that the movers would call when they were on route, they did not. I had to call your offices, and finally got called at 9:10 am. I met them at the storage unit at 9:20, and their work was concluded at 12;23. That was 3 hours and 3 minutes. There should have been no additional charge. You have refused to discuss this issue and to provide a remedy. Your own invoice clearly indicated $770.

Your mover dropped and dragged my custom-made bookcase along the cement. He did not offer any apologies. He said he would report it. Apparently, he did not based on my conversations. Before they left, I asked the older mover if the bed had been reassembled. He said “was it supposed to be?” A few minutes later I went upstairs, only to find that the slats were not assembled. He said the slates were the wrong size, and that they were not needed. I called Sealy, Simmons, Serta, and over 10 local furniture companies. All said that all queen and king size beds need slates.

On June 6, I reported this to you. You told me that if you would have to come out for repairs to both my bed and bookcase, that I would be charged $290 for service and a 2 hour minimum.

On June 8, I left a message stating that the entire bed collapsed. I now have a bed that I can neither sleep on, or sit. This was due to the incompetence, negligence or just plain laziness of your employees. Of course, I never got a response from you because it appears that you just don’t care. I believe that I am entitled to repairs or replacements if needed.

Needless to say, I am very disappointed. If I do not hear from you by Wednesday, July 14, then I will assume that you do not intend to service my needs. In such case you may be assured that we will pursue other courses of action that will prove both embarrassing and expensive to Bekins.
