This merchant deserves ZERO start. It targets interstate movers who have several thousand dollar moving costs to spend. After paying the reservation fee to Allied Moving Group, you basically wait for the moving truck to show up at your door for God knows when it will show up and what the cost will be. Allied Moving Group agents make you believe the more you add to your moving list, the more saving you will get. By having a big moving list, you need to pay more for the reservation fee (one third of estimation cost). After you paid the fee, your call to the agent is blocked.
This company will do everything they can to scam you. The foremen will tell his crew to load everything light so they can charge you more for packing materials even though your load comes in underweight. They charged us an additional $1,000 for a 2 bdr, 2 ba house. I had to fight with the broker to get my money back. They showed up with a rental pick up truck and trailer, and even though we verified our delivery date several times, they called the day before to tell us that their truck was broken and they couldn't deliver on time. They will give you excuse after excuse why it can't be done on time. These folks are not reputable and also go by the name of Safe Load Moving and Storage. Buyer beware! Don't let them touch your belongings, you may never see them again.
05/08/2018 My significant other and I sought out moving services to have our belongings moved from Ohio to Illinois due to relocation of employment and reached out to Allied Moving Company to arrange our move on 5/5/2018. At that time we spoke to a man named Michael, of which was never "available" again to speak with after making the reservation and taking our deposit money. We were told at that time that our move had a window to be picked up between the 17th and the 18th of May. We were also told that someone would reach out to us at the beginning of the week to let us know the date and time of the move so that we could plan to have all of our belongings ready. It was explained at that time that we were limited on the 18th as we had an engagement in the afternoon that we would not be available and were told that they could accommodate that. At that time we put down a deposit of $580.00 to reserve the move. When the week came for our move, we were not contacted, I reached out to them on Monday and was told that they still didn't have a date and time. I was told by "Patty" that they would have a date and time the following day. Again, at the end of the day I had to reach out again because they didn't call back and was told that they would have the information to me by the end of the day tomorrow due to scheduling their trucks and that information was not available. I AGAIN, explained to the moving company when I first made the reservation that we had a prior engagement on the 18th and would not be available for a move pick up later in the afternoon and was told this time that they would "do their best" to accommodate the request. It was again "Patty" that stated she didn't know why "Michael" would say something like that and would address that with him. I heard from the moving company on Wednesday stating that the pickup would be on the 18th but didn't have a time as that information would not be available until the following day. I contacted them on Thursday about the pickup on the following date and was given the run around about not having a time yet and it would be available later in the afternoon. I was FINALLY given a time for pickup and it was in the afternoon even after requesting multiple times that if the 18th was the moving date, that it be in the morning. At this point, I wanted to collect as much information as possible about the moving company and their contracted mover and asked for their DOT license number and the movers as well as their MC number. I verified the numbers that were given to me by the broker (Allied) with the local company (Unique Van Lines) and the numbers were different. It was at this point that I began to worry that this was a scam. I also asked what the contracted movers BBB rating was and was told that it was a "D". I contacted the moving company before their closing time to speak to customer service and told them that I no longer wanted to use their services as this move has been a nightmare up to this point and they didn't even have our belongings yet. I also informed them that I would be contacting the movers to let them know that we would no longer be using their services. I spoke to them and explained that we would not be using their services. When I attempted to call back again and confirm that the cancellation was complete with Allied, the were no longer answering the phone, and the calls were made within their business hours. I made several attempts after that date to get in contact with the company about refunding my deposit as the services were cancelled and they wouldn't respond. I reached out to my bank to dispute the charge as fraudulent and that the services were cancelled. I was told by my bank to reach out to them one more time as good measure and request to have my deposit returned and I called them, no answer, left a message, and was never called back. Allied submitted a letter that they wanted to dispute giving me my money back. 07/11/2018 I received a letter from my bank to collect additional information about the move and to inform me that Allied is disputing the charges. I called Allied and again "Patty" answered the phone. I asked to speak with Irina Martsela, who is listed on this letter as the CEO and was told she wasn't available at this time as she was in an interview. I explained to Patty again that the services were cancelled and she acknowledged that she remembered me . I told her that the services were cancelled and therefore they were not entitled to keep my deposit and she stated that only the contracted mover was contacted, which was incorrect as I spoke to her on the same date as the mover. I informed her that I would also be filing complaints with the DOT and the Federal Motor carriers and requested their CEO call me back timely.
