Moving Review on essential movers

2.2

I hired these movers in March to complete a move this past weekend. they took a small deposit and they provided a couple of estimates. the estimates are based on weight and not incorrect,but the amount of weight they suggest for the quote,is much lower than the real quote will be.%0d%0a%0d%0aI had to put most of my items in a POD (16' X 8' X 8') which has a maximum weight capacity of about 5-6000 lbs.%0d%0a%0d%0aI also had a few items used during staging that I would estimate at about 3000 lbs.%0d%0a%0d%0aEssential movers used 5,000 lbs in their highest quote. The real amount turned out to be over 14,000%0d%0a%0d%0aand here is where the sleazy part of the scam begins. Our move was on a Friday and when all the items are picked up the movers drove away and were going to meet me in Picton,the next on Saturday.%0d%0a%0d%0aSo Saturday morning I woke up early to find an email with a quote bill for $5,805 less the deposit of $200.%0d%0a%0d%0aThis was almost 3 times the highest quote they provided.%0d%0a%0d%0aThe moving van was scheduled for 8am and I had to scramble to find cash or arrange the debit limits so I could pay the bill. You also had the option of using a credit card,with a 3% fee.%0d%0a%0d%0aIf you do not have the money ready to pay by the time the show up at your house,they then warn you will be charged with a waiting fee.%0d%0a%0d%0aI paid the bill,as I needed to have my stuff brought into the house.%0d%0a%0d%0aThe movers were not bad,%0d%0a%0d%0aWhen I contacted the company on Monday to enquire by email,no reply.%0d%0a%0d%0aI will continue to inform about these scammers
