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.

If you need help with a moving your items, I would always recommend Cross Country Moving Group. My family and I have used the company a few times now, and I will continue to keep using them when I need a move. When I moved into my first apartment a year ago, I was stressed out about finding a moving company. Somebody had to recommend these guys to our family. She has used them twice, and they are so lovely and quote beat everyone else's.
This second time that I used them really showed how exceptional they are. Once we chose our move-in date for our new apartment, we immediately called CCMC to schedule the movers to come that day between 9-10 a.m. They had sent me a confirmation via email that I did not see and also contact to verify, so they ensure I was taken care of. The day before the move, our liaison office informed us that they forgot to mention we couldn't pick up the keys until noon so we scrambled to call Cross Country Moving Company to ascertain if they could push back our time. Which they did, by rescheduling our movement. Special thanks to you guys!
Our move 9/2015, resulted in at least 50% of our shipment damaged, lost and showed clear evidence of tampering.
Bekins does as they wish and offer no explanations as to events or decisions made when asked. The consumer is left limited ways of resolving business with Bekins, when inquiries, or explanations go unanswered. All requests, fall on deaf ears, closed eyes, and sealed mouths. The three little monkeys often used to refer to “those who deal with impropriety by turning a blind eye”.
During our unfortunate dealings with Bekins, our concerns became not just for ourselves, but for those that do not have the benefit or knowledge on how to challenge such unscrupulous dealings. A simple review on the internet offers numerous complaints and suits. Consumers that seek endorsement are looking for security and trustworthiness, especially during life altering transitional events. By way of any endorsement of Bekins one would be "trustingly leading the prey to the predators".
