Being Friday the 13th, we figured something a little spooky might be in store for this edition of the blog. Unfortunately, a lot of things can go wrong while moving, and the industry is full of horror stories from folks who have had bad experiences. Here are a couple of the worst moving horror stories we have heard here at Garrett’s Moving and Storage.
Have you had a moving horror story? Tell us about it in the comments!
I hired a guy off of Craigslist because he gave me a good quote. He not only dinged all my furniture, but got sweat stains all over my sofa. He acted like he had a few too many drinks and nearly fainted half way through the move.
Craiglist Crazy Pt 2.
I was moving within my neighborhood and found a company off Craigslist. The two movers were super fast in loading the truck but when we got to my new place they refused to unload anything unless I paid them both $100 extra cash (this was on top of the original price). Needless to say I refused and an hour later they finally unloaded my things.
Moving Truck MIA
I was moving from Dallas to New York and the movers were supposed to get here a week after I arrived. I called 1 day before the movers were supposed to arrive to make sure everything was on schedule. The woman said she would check and get back with me. For the next 3 days I kept calling and calling with no response. For one week I lived in a sleeping bag and the barest of essentials. The movers did not arrive until a full week after they were supposed to.
I remember being a kid and witnessing my aunt and uncle’s move from an apartment. My aunt’s prized upright piano was loaded by my dad and uncle into the back of their pickup. I watched as the truck climbed up a steep hill and the piano came rolling out the back and smashed on the street. My aunt cried, but I thought it was actually pretty funny.
