Me and my family just moved from Florida to North Carolina. I wanted to share our experience with the movers that we hired, MORGAN VAN LINES. Their toll free # is 1 800 883 5448 and email firstname.lastname@example.org and www.morganvanline.com.Beware of this company. They totally ripped us off. How I wish me and my husband were wise enough to stop the loading of our things when Mike, the Jewish guy who loaded our things gave us a different price from what Margaret gave us during the estimate. Margaret told us with all the things and furnitures that we were moving and I declared and described one by one including full packing and unpacking, that the total price was $3335. We ended up with $7000 and I tearfully negotiated it down to $5700 which was so much beyond our budget. We were forced to borrow money from relatives. These people and company have no mercy, they will rip you off whatever. We decided to not continue with them while Mike was loading our things but were promised that they will work with us and go down with the price to just about the price that was quoted by Margaret. This was a mistake. We were in a hurry to move our things because my husband would start his new job that Monday and we were moving our things Wednesday. Mike and another guy were the only ones who arrived at the house to pack and load our things considering that they were aware that we have a 6 bedroom house. It took them 2 days to pack our things and load them in the truck. They even have to barrow our car to get some food.
Mike bought my dining table which I bought for $1700 originally and was selling only for $150. Mike said he will pay me when our things will be delivered. Gabi, another Jewish guy delivered our things and we never got paid. Mike loaded this dining set into our truck and used our space. He really ripped us off.
These company and these people should be avoided. They won’t care what situation you are in. Me and my husband were giving up our house and going to live with my daughter because I am on disability due to my Parkinson’s and cannot afford our house anymore. We told them this but these people are just the worst kind we have ever come across. This is our 4th move and so far the most expensive and the worst one. WE never had a problem with our previous moves before. The thing that is so sad about this is that me and my husband with through all the movers and read all their reviews. Please beware and don’t go with the reviews. I can now imagine that their reviews are all fabricated because they were the ones with 90% good review and most have like 50/50 bad and good reviews. MORGAN VAN LINES had an A+ BBB rating and 90%good reviews. We got so unlucky to pick them. THEY TOTALLY RIPPED US OFF!!
They said they have professional movers, they are lying. Gabi, the Jewish guy who delivered our things arrived alone and I did talk to the 5 people with him. They told me that they were just picked up from Craig’s list and were locals.
Margaret said that the estimate was with full packing and unpacking. Our things were delivered like they were bought from a garage sale, the mattresses were not wrapped or covered, the TV was not even covered or protected, the chair was just bare and they just load them up to our apartment and that was it. Me and my husband did all the assembly of our beds and all the furnitures when this was supposedly full packing and unpacking including assembly. Our things were just dumped into boxes including the computers , no protection at all. This was just so much stress for us. The guy who shipped our car, a local of Wake Forest, NC said that really, in this earth you deal with 2 kinds of people, one who’s gonna bend over to help you and the other is the evil who’s going to do anything to rip you off. This MORGAN VAN LINES is just that 2nd kind of people you come across. So sad to know that there are really people who have that evil heart to do that to others.
I usually don’t make any comments or reviews when I have nothing to praise the company about, but I am obligated to make this review so other people will be aware. Reviews and BBB rating is so deceiving. The best thing is recommendation from others who had a good experience with their move.
The picture of the dining set below was bought by Mike, put in the truck first against out space and did not pay us. He said he will pay when our things will be delivered. Our stuffs were delivered by another guy Gabi who did not know anything.
