Ram Moving Corp
Check their multiple listings on Yellow Pages under different names by address-which is the same as Win Moving Van Lines. They have 10 different moving company names owned by one man. They have a class action lawsuit and many judgements/complaints against them, over 400. Check BBB, search their name in any search engine. I didn't, and now I am paying for it! They took all of my belongings from CA, supposed to meet me in AZ the next day per the man at my house with the 3 workers and everyone I ever spoke to at the company-they never showed up! When I called to get their ETA, they said they were unloading my stuff into a storage warehouse and wont tell me where!! They said I did not read the fine print, they had 7 days to deliver. It has now been 8 days and the driver is now "sick" so they don't know when they will deliver my stuff. Run away!! Search their name, the owner was on the news ( you can watch it yourself) for scamming and decieving numerouse people!
Tips & Advices
Yes, it’s best to empty drawers, wardrobes and chests before a move. Items always get knocked around a bit, and doors can fly open even if they’ve been taped. In fact, more often than not, movers will want to remove the drawers from a dresser--or disassemble the wardrobe to be more space-efficient.
Yes, it is customary to tip movers, but the amount varies widely. For full-service moves, a 5 percent tip is suggested, although, for extra service, some people go up to 10 percent . For small local movers, you can give each mover $10 for a few-hour job, or $20-$40 for jobs that take longer.
A bill of lading is the legal contract for the move. It provides a detailed receipt, in addition to a contract between the client and the mover. It authorizes the mover to transport the goods from one specific point to another, and it outlines the exact scope of services, with cost breakdown for those services. It also provides an itemized list of the inventory, and carrier liability protection for each declared item. Finally, it specifies the payment arrangement. Make sure to go over your itemized list extremely carefully before finalizing the paperwork--and get a copy of the full document. A good mover will go over everything on the bill of lading with the customer.
There are several items that moving companies will not move – those items will be listed on a document as “non-allowables.” These items typically fall in three categories: perishables, sentimental/personal items, and hazardous material. Perishables are food and plants. Sentimental/personal value is up to the client to decide, but usually includes jewelry, medical and dental records, personal paperwork, valuables and collectibles. Hazardous material is the tricky category, since it includes a lot of everyday items found in the garage, garden or kitchen. For example, cleaning liquids and pesticides both are considered non-allowable by many companies. Some go so far as to disallow nail polish and batteries.
A binding estimate means that the moving company cannot charge more than the stated amount, though they can lower the final bill if the scope of the job was smaller than expected. A non-binding moving estimate is more likely to wind up costing more than expected, since the movers can increase their rates for unforeseen variables like stairs, “long carry” and materials.
