In the beginning the sales rep Jackie seemed nice and helpful. Well, that was only in the beginning to rope me in for my business. Once we scheduled the move, I wasn’t able to speak to her anymore. She never returned my calls/messages/emails. She also didn’t quote me on ALL the fees I would incur so the final bill ended up being much larger than expected. Once the movers came for pick up, they weren’t gentle with moving even fragile labeled items. They were nice however and explained further fees. Which quickly added up. Then there was a delay in delivery, initially Jackie told us 1 day. It ended up being 3 days. A couple things were broken. Once delivered – we were informed of yet another large fee, a long carry fee which was an atrocious amount. After the move was complete we found a discrepancy between the initial contract and the NEW contract I was given at pick up…. Yes 2 different contracts, and the fees do not match! Hence the final amount owed being so much more at the end. Our bill ended up being $1000 more than expected just due to fees. I called and asked to speak to the manager where the call ended up being extremely unprofessional and very rude where I was told they would not refund any fees I was offered only $100 credit but I had to sign a document stating I wouldn’t report them to the BBB or on any website what so ever!! So I chose not to accept the credit and am now writing bad reviews everywhere I can to hopefully save other customers this pain

Meridian International Movers, INC Reviews - 2
-Go by TWO different names…Meridian International Moving, INC. and Meridian Moving Corp.
-Actual amount due was almost DOUBLE the estimate…which they don’t tell you until your items are on their truck
-Once they book you and items are picked up, Jackie and Leo NEVER return emails or phone calls. Told us we were bothering them when trying to get a hold of them.
-Don't pick up or deliver in own "Meridian" trucks like they say.
-Hire craigslist movers to help unload
-Are NOT careful with items when moving, even boxes marked FRAGILE
-ALL boxes marked FRAGILE are completely crushed and broken!!!!!
-Do not reassemble any furniture that they previous disassembled.
-Do not check the bogus “inventory list” they attempt to take on pickup at delivery
THE WORST EXPERIENCE…will never hire a moving company again because of this scam of a company. This was my biggest nightmare.
