Moving Kings Van Lines
Moving with Moving Kings Van Lines
After going back and forth for week about hiring movers or to try and wing it ourselves we came across Moving Kings. I had called two other companies(I was not only shopping for a fair price but good customer service) Kings was very reasonably priced, and instantly put our minds at ease. They showed up on time had everything loaded into the truck in what seemed to be instant and we were on our way to our new home. The 5 men that showed up all introduced themselves with a smile. They set up our new place in less time then we had originally had scheduled. Shout out to Cam, Kevin, Gerson, Dennis, ( I am sorry I am missing one) for making this move such a pleasure. Family members are moving soon and have already decided they wont go with any other movers.
I have a mixed review about my move with "Moving Kings". The actual moving crew (Richard and Gerson) did a commendable job packing and transporting the house contents. They proved to be very courteous and very diligent in their duties and I was very pleased with their work.
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about Customer Service. I got some serious jerking around from their representative (Maritza) not only on the delivery schedule but also on the empty promises to deliver a furniture repair kit for some unfortunate damage on a very expensive piece of furniture.
1. The delivery problems: After having the furniture in storage while we found a new home, I called Maritza at least 10 days in advance to indicate that we would need to have the furniture delivered on the 1st of May. She indicated that it would be no problem since she had no other deliveries scheduled for that day. A couple of days before the due date, she called me to say that the delivery had to be postponed for at least two more days since she had several people that also wanted their moves on the 1st of May. (Wasn't she obligated to honor my request since obviously the others came long after I reserved that date?) This two-day delay cost me considerable additional expenses since we had to find accommodations for those two extra days.
2. The empty promises: As soon as the damage to the fine dining room set (valued at $5,000) was noted, the mover (Richard) called the home office to have a furniture repair kit mailed to me so that we might correct the damage and avoid complicated claims. Two weeks later, I called again about the kit and was told that it was "in the mail". Ten days later (still no kit), I spoke with Maritza and she apologized and said she would "overnight" it to me. Well, another week went by and this "overnight" never happened. When I tried calling one last time I could not even get anyone to answer the phone so I simply left a message that this was my last call and that I was left with no other choice but to publish my story on the company's reviews.
This company was excellent! Every person I spoke to was professional and helpful. The guys that showed up to move were great as well. They were polite, and they worked fast. I spoke to a live person every time I called in to get updates. All of my belongings arrived in great condition.
I am so glad I went with this company. I had a horrible experience with another company during my past move and I was skeptical about using another company. These guys were great from start to finish. Everything was on time and my items arrived in perfect condition. I was called regularly for updates on where the truck was and when delivery would be. Great communication from the entire team
I am so happy with the way this moved turned out. This company was great from beginning to end. They were easy to get a hold of every time I called in, they were patient and answered all of my questions. Everything was picked up and delivered on time. Thank you so much!
Super happy with this company! They were wonderful from start to finish. Everyone I spoke with was very helpful. The moving crew showed up as scheduled for pick up and drop off. I will be using them for any other moves and telling any friends that need to move about them as well.
These guys were wonderful! They helped me arrange a move for my mother. They were very understanding and accommodating. I am so happy I went with them after countless hours of trying to work with different companies. All of my mother's belongings arrived in top condition and she was so happy.
There guys really are the kings of moving! They gave me a better price than anyone else I contacted, they even included some packing services, they have someone there to answer the phone all the time. I spoke to a real live person even after 10pm. The crew that showed up was professional and respectful. They provided all of the packing materials I needed and quickly packed up my entire house. I was informed when to expect them to drop off my belongings and they were punctual.
I could've made a terrible mistake too if I hadn't chosen these guys. My colleague chose a different moving company while myself chose Moving Kings for our relocation to the same State of Georgia. Moving Kings took absolute care of my properties and delivered them the next day. But sorry to say that my colleague things arrived in 7 days and on top of that, some of his things were missing and some too were damaged. What a pity! I'm glad I chose these guys for my job, they actually did a good job and I'll not hesitate to hire them again in the near future.
My husband and I were curious about shifting to Arizona State with Moving Kings because all of our friends recommended this company to us when searching for a reputable mover. As described, they accomplished the task in an excellent mode, clean delivery! We shall make them our perpetual mover.
“The association of truckers with cowboys and related myths was perhaps most obvious during the urban-cowboy craze of the late 1970s, a period that saw middle-class urbanites wearing cowboy clothing and patronizing simulated cowboy nightclubs. During this time, at least four truck driver movies appeared, CB radio became popular, and truck drivers were prominently featured in all forms of popular media.” — Lawrence J. Ouellet
There are certain characteristics of a truck that makes it an "off-road truck". They generally standard, extra heavy-duty highway-legal trucks. Although legal, they have off-road features like front driving axle and special tires for applying it to tasks such as logging and construction. The purpose-built off-road vehicles are unconstrained by weighing limits, such as the
A moving scam is a scam by a moving company in which the company provides an estimate, loads the goods, then states a much higher price to deliver the goods, effectively holding the goods as lien but does this without do a change of order or revised estimate.
The interstate moving industry in the United States maintains regulation by the FMCSA, which is part of the USDOT. With only a small staff (fewer than 20 people) available to patrol hundreds of moving companies, enforcement is difficult. As a result of such a small staff, there are in many cases, no regulations that qualify moving companies as 'reliable'. Without this guarantee, it is difficult to a consumer to make a choice. Although, moving companies can provide and often display a DOT license.
The industry intends to both consumers as well as moving companies, this is why there are Ministers of Transportation in the industry. They are there to set and maintain laws and regulations in place to create a safer environment. It offers its members professional service training and states the time that movers have been in existence. It also provides them with federal government representation and statistical industry reporting. Additionally, there are arbitration services for lost or damaged claims, publications, public relations, and annual tariff updates and awards. This site includes articles as well that give some direction, a quarterly data summary, and industry trends.
