Ballantyne & Beyond Moving
Moving with Ballantyne & Beyond Moving
Wow...I'm still in disbelief after my conversation today about damages to my furniture after being moving into a storage facility. Let me start of by saying that I didn't use professional movers when I relocated from Virginia to Charlotte and my furniture paid the price. So this time I decided to hire professional movers. So, my house was moved last year into a storage facility and the move went smoothly or so I thought....Fast forward to April 30th, 2017 as I'm moving out of my 10x20 storage unit that was filled front to back, top to bottom and I could barely open the door. As I'm moving my things out for transport to my new home I'm finding damage after damage....broken antiques, ripped fabric on a chair, scratches on filing cabinets and furniture, handle broken of a chest of drawers, dents on my washer and dryer and the list goes on. I contacted them about the damages and was told their liability ended once they placed it in storage as they have no idea what might have happened while in the storage unit and someone else may have handled it and done the damage.....Really, the unit was filled from front to back and top to bottom.....I couldn't have moved anything if I tried. Not to mention I took pictures of the damages as I found them "in the storage unit". The person I spoke with did tell me that if I had stored with them or they had done this move as well they would have responsibility. It's their policy. I could have an owner call me to explain it to me if I want....really, what's the point. Clearly they do not accept responsibility for a poor move! And now I have to try to find someone to repair / replace the damages. I will never use them again and will be certain to tell everyone I know as well.
I wish I could give no stars. Contracted with them to do a straightforward store pickup to be conveyed before starting a move. They were to get the thing, present to it my condo, then move my effects to another loft in the same complex. I needed to rehash the directions a few times to the individual on the telephone due to her battles with English. That ought to have been my notice. I faxed the receipt to their office as trained, as they expected to present it to get the things. At the beginning of today I got a call from the driver who was completely confounded, and again showed trouble with English, shouting via telephone: "I can't do this! You should be here. I have an open contract." I had a go at letting him know that wasn't the arrangement,but he kept shouting and yelling. I was stunned and truly baffled.
I have utilized Ballantyne and Beyond for two moves. I'm inspiring prepared to move again and going to call them. Hence, it constrained me to compose a positive audit for them. Both times I've utilized them, they were quick and effective. I was moving to a loft on the third story every time. They took not very many breaks and everything was moved in rapidly and where I needed it. The costs were exceptionally sensible. I've utilized different movers beforehand that were "angie's rundown best" and they were not in the slightest degree the best. Unless I move to another state, I will keep on utilizing Ballantyne and Beyond movers for any of my future moves.
