I kind of want to keep telling people about this as much as I can, cause this all is a set up.
Now to tell you why in a step by step story:
1- Moving APT is a broker. This caused alot of confusion when another company ( Public movers ) showed up to pick my stuff. They had some objections about dessembling my bed room, claiming this is "too complicated" since it was from ikea. When calling moving APT, there was no direct connection between the two.
2- Also initial estimates by the broker do not have to match the mover actual special weigh station numbers ( which are VERY suspicious). they weigh the stuff at CAT weigh stations, which are scattered and maybe over 60 miles from your place (my case).
3- Moving APT uses weight for their estimate. So for a 1 BD room apt with the items I noted they estimated the total as 3400 pounds. The price was 1500$. (they use the deceptive language of "oh we usually over estimate, so don't worry") However, when movers came and weighed my stuff it came down to 5200 pounds ! charged me 3200$ instead !! calling them again... no valid response..
4- Damaged items and missing items ( I dont understand how they miss items after they color label your items with a special color! ).
5- Worse part... When complained, the complaint company is a third party!!!. (movingclaims.net) so there is a lot of confusion in the whole process. and this is a very lengthy process ( three months and no word from resolution center yet).
Now: after they noticed one of my reviews, they emailed me asking me to call them and I did believe it or not. They they'll try come up with a compensation for my bad experience and again they didn't ! That's why I keep telling.. They just simply lie and count on you to buy it !!!
Bottom line.. Don't do it. I would rent a Uhaul (total 600 miles was ~ 900$) and 2 people to load and unlaod (total~ 300$) and drive it myself instead ( in my calculations it would have saved 1800$)
I read bad reviews about them but not too many so I didn't listen, guess what ...too late !
