I have personal experience with knowing this company. They were acquired by All My Sons Moving company a bit over a year ago, they are paying to use the Graebel name. Why would they pay to use it, because their name has been damaged. They hire on contractors, who in turn hire their own crews. These crews mostly consist of illegal undocumented workers which they can pay less because it is under the table. Their is no incentive to work here. Graebel once had a good name, but with them no longer and a company like All My Sons, it will only be damaged further.
We contracted Graebel Movers in Oct 2015. We had them move our belongings out of our old house and into storage for approx 5 months while our new house was being built.We had approx 200 boxes and furniture to be moved. On move in day, everything seemed to be going along good.All furniture and boxes were moved and put in designated rooms according to label on boxes.As my wife unpacked boxes one at a time, do to washing clothes and dishes in boxes after being stored for 5 months, we slowly got down to the floor. Boxes were piled 3 to 4 high in groups in different rooms. When we got to the bottom of boxes, we found scratches on the NEW hardwood floors. we started moving all boxes and found quite a few scratches. We found a nice gauge in the floor under a recliner chair.We contacted Loretta and she said "she would start a claim for us" she said we had thirty days for damages and 90 days for damaged goods.We received an Email from Carrie Bratz (firstname.lastname@example.org) from Graebel in Wisconsin in regards to our claim.We were trying to get all vendors together to get this repair estimate, She had told us that was OK as long as you let me know what was going on. We had been able to send in all quotes from venders on May 15, 2016 due to getting everyone to submit their quotes. We received this--
-(-Dear Mr. Casale ,

Graebel Vanlines Holdings, LLC. has received your claim form for your move to SC. Our file indicates that your delivery date was 4/1/16. We received your property claim form on 4/8/16. Notification of property damages has to be within 48 hours of occurrence.

Again we had over 200 boxes and they now were saying we had 48 hours.We were told we had 30 days by Loretta. (Less)
I had a fantastic involvement with this moving company, to such an extent that I'm thinking about whether the past commentators and I are portraying the same moving company. All aspects of the experience from the introductory review to the convey was on-time and totally bother free. They pressed and unloaded everything deliberately and were exceptionally gracious the whole time. The correspondence previously, then after the fact the move was likewise more than I anticipated. I have no protests and exceedingly suggest Graebel's administrations.
We likewise had issues with a few broken things and missing stock. Client administration was a bad dream and the things that were feeling the loss of (the greater part of my costly ski apparatus) won't be repaid in light of the fact that they by one means or another were excluded on the stock. We were never advised we expected to chase after the 3 women pressing in 3 unique ranges of the house to check what was in every case before it was stacked onto the truck. Rather, they stuffed it and stacked it onto the truck and afterward instruct you to simply sign the stock sheets. At that point they lose the stock and intervention is your just choice.
The public idea of the trucking industry in the United States popular culture has gone through many transformations.However, images of the masculine side of trucking are a common theme throughout time.The 1940's first made truckers popular, with their songs and movies about truck drivers. Then in the 1950's theywere depictedas heroes of the road, living a life of freedom on the open road.Trucking culture peaked in the 1970's as theywere glorifiedas modern days cowboys, outlaws, and rebels. Since then the portrayal has come with a more negative connotation as we see in the 1990's.Unfortunately, the depiction of truck drivers went from such a positive depiction to that of troubled serial killers.
Another film released in 1975, White Line Fever, also involved truck drivers. It tells the story of a Vietnam War veteran who returns home to take over his father's trucking business. But, he soon finds that corrupt shippers are trying to force him to carry illegal contraband.While endorsing another negative connotation towards the trucking industry, it does portray truck drivers with a certain wanderlust.
The year 1611 marked an important time for trucks, as that is when the word originated. The usage of "truck" referred to the small strong wheels on ships' cannon carriages. Further extending its usage in 1771, it came to refer to carts for carrying heavy loads. In 1916 it became shortened, calling it a "motor truck".While since the 1930's its expanded application goes as faras tosay "motor-powered load carrier".
Popular among campers is the use of lightweight trailers, such as aerodynamic trailers. These canbe towed bya small car, such as the BMW Air Camper. Theyare builtwith the intent to lower the tow of the vehicle, thus minimizing drag.
AMSA wanted to help consumers avoid untrustworthy or illegitimate movers. In January 2008, AMSA created the ProMover certification program for its members. As a member, you must have federal interstate operating authority.Members are also required to pass an annual criminal back check,be licensed bythe FMCSA, and agree to abide by ethical standards. This would include honesty in advertising and in business transaction with customers.Each must also sign a contract committing to adhere to applicable Surface Transportation Board and FMCSA regulations. AMSA also takes into consideration and examines ownership. They are very strict, registration with state corporation commissions.This means that the mover must maintain at least a satisfactory rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB).As one can imagine, those that passare authorizedto display the ProMove logo on the websites and in marketing materials.However, those that fail willbe expelledfrom the program (and AMSA) if they cannot correct discrepancies during probation.
