Across America Moving and Storage Informative - Don't use this company

Review by qteondty on 2007-09-14
I want to warn everyone that moves don't use this company. First, they are not a BBB member (first red flag) and second they use rental trucks (second red flag). We obtained a quote from them for 1600.00 and with same day service. We had 2 quotes and went with them and it was the biggest nightmare and mistake ever. Once they loaded our things they demanded cash rather than check or credit card as stated in their contract. The price jumped from 1700 to 4500. Yes more than doubled. You hear the horror stories of moving companies but, I am living proof this is one. Also, once they came (which they arrived 1 hour late) they wanted to bring our things the next day rather than the same day and we were not going for that because if they changed the price and the method of payment on us who is to say we would never had seen our things again or demanded more money. They also demanded a tip. We paid the 1700.00 plus the tip and they forged my signature for the an additional 2900.00. The bank accepted this and processed the charge.

Sounds like you have an argument with your bank as well - if they took a check with a forged signature and cashed it then you need to go to them and get your money back. Good luck.

Never give the go ahead on a quote alone. Without a signed contract they can charge as much as they want. Just because a business is listed with the BBB doesn't mean they are honest and reliable.
