3 movers and a big truck. Moved from 2nd story apartment to a townhouse. So the 3 guys had to move a king sized mattress set and a queen sized for guest room. down 2 stories and then carry back up another steep and narrow flight of stairs on the other end of the move. Plus the shrink wrapped the wood furniture to protect it for scratches. Plus dining room (Solid wood), TV and living room with recliners. August in Florida. Nice guys and nothing broke. 3 men came out and 1 man went down due to dehydration. They called in another man for replacement. I thought we would be through about 1 pm. Nope it was 10:30 am.. Family owned business, and working for over 30 years. Richard came out and gave a quote prior to moving and actually the quote was within $20.00
The truck driver from ADM moving company decided to leave a client’s personal property on the side of the rode while delivering my friend’s belongings to our house. On top of that, he didn’t even deliver all of my friend’s things to our house because he claims that he’s “just the driver”. So apparently that means he can drive around and a huge truck without knowing what he is hauling! (Btw they quoted my friend $1,570 and but ended up tacking on $1,100 because there were items such as a lamp that she failed to include in the item listing)
I spoke with "Vinny" from this company and he sounded very honest and genuine. He told me that they "are a family owned company" and how much his customers mean to them. He quoted me 1,300$ to move 3.5 bedrooms 600 miles. He "talked me through an online contract" where he "highlighted" the important parts so I "would be clear" and have "no confusion" about the contract. In particular he emphasized "anything we disassemble we will reassemble" and how my personal belongings were insured, directing my attention to parts of the contract that made them sound like an honest company. Furthermore, he told me that for "only 300$" I could reserve a truck and full service move. After booking the move, I was alarmed when I read some of the reviews about this company. I was also skeptical because Vinny had sounded so genuine on the phone and he told me I could call or email him "anytime". I decided to call him back for reassurance. However, after he got my deposit I never heard from him again. I called him several times and emailed him but got no response. At that point I read the contract in more detail and realized that I didn't pay attention to the parts of the contract that stated that it could take "7-14 business days" for them to deliver our belongings. In addition, deposits are only refundable if there is a cancellation that they acknowledge 7 days before the date of the move. I could not get a hold on anyone in this company by phone or email to request that my deposit was refunded. It was very naive of me not to read the entire contract and needless to say I did not get my 300$ deposit back. This was a learning experience for me and if you are considering hiring American Discount Movers I urge you to learn from my mistake. Please do not be fooled by how honest and genuine they sound on the phone. Read the entire contract before signing, and pay specific attention to how long it could take them to deliver your belongings. Also be aware of the "window" of time they allow themselves for picking up your possessions.
They charged us $450 to HIRE a moving company for us. They neglected to give the moving company our change of delivery date which ended up COSTING US HUNDREDS of more dollars. They have a F rating on BBB and now I know they deserve that. I called and talked to the manager who interrupted me, yelled at me and hung up on me when I asked for the email proof that they informed the movers of the new move date. He said he worked hard for his money which I find funny since he has managed to swindle our hard earned money and then some. I would not wish this company on my worst enemy. Beware!!!!!!
The absolutely WORST experience! Not only was the staff at ADM rude, a bunch of liars and not helpful, the moving company we got hooked up with were a bunch of liars as well! They were almost 2 days late picking up our stuff and because we shared a truck with another customer and they had "more than the were suppose to" so they strapped our belongings to the outside of the truck!!!! I had about enough at that point and the movers were extremely rude when I told them I wasn't paying them THOUSANDS of dollars to have my things strapped to the back of a truck! Not to mention, when they FINALLY showed up to our new home (unannounced by the way and days late), they wanted a TIP! REALLY? We were charged TRIPLE the original quote. I advise to NEVER EVER use this company. It would have been cheaper and saved a lot of headaches if we just rented a U-HAUL to drive 6 1/2 hours from Syracuse to Maryland. I thought it would have been better to hire movers. If we ever move again, we'll do it ourselves! STAY FAR AWAY FROM THESE PEOPLE!
They are not movers. They are BROKERS. They subcontract out your move to the lowest bidder. This means ADM has no idea what's going on with your move! And the subcontracted mover can charge you whatever they want! The movers -- All My Family -- were very professional and courteous. It was the brokerage process that was terrible. ADM wanted an inventory before I was done packing. They told me to put in the max # of boxes I'd have, and that the movers would adjust the inventory (and price) when they got there. The mover said he wouldn't readjust it. ($300) ADM told me my price was $0.66/lb. They'd weigh my things once they were picked up and readjust the price. So I shipped all my heavy books USPS at $0.23/lb. The movers said the price was based on cubic feet, not weight -- so that was a waste. ($50) ADM said there were no long-carry charges. The mover had a long carry charge. $75 ADM said my first flight of stairs was free. My mover charged me for non-existent stairs (elevators count as "stairs"). $75 ADM said the movers would reassemble my furniture. My mover would not reassemble it unless I paid a fee.
Spoke with Eli who was very courteous, professional and definitely convincing. All changed after that. I Paid my deposit and they disappeared. Movers showed up and price doubled. Services i was told were included were not. At that point i was hooked, was leaving town the day after they picked up everything, no time to find anyone else or move myself. No returned calls or emails. Don't waste your money. I truly feel like i was robbed.
I highly recommend not using this company for your moving needs. Our whole experience from beginning to end and even during the claims process was exceptionally stressful and frustrating. They sub-contracted our move to another company after we paid for certain services. We never received the services we paid for and neither company would accept responsibility even though we gave all our money to ADM LLC. ADM LLC refused to take responsibility and repeatedly told us to call their sub-contractor. The sub-contractor refused all communication with us and was unbelievably rude and unprofessional. We ended up just throwing in the towel and never received the hundreds of dollars that ADM LLC owes to us in a refund because we were so stressed and frustrated dealing with them.
This is the most shady company I have ever used for anything. STAY AWAY from them, once you pay them their portion they will never contact you again. They are a broker and should be with their customer every step of the way. I have had to deal directly with the people they contracted the job to. They are so shady. I should have used Mayflower or United Van Lines. You definitely get what you pay for with this company. This is in no way a reflection on the people who actually moved my things, they were excellent. The moving brokers are a nightmare!!
This company practices dishonest, fraudulent and unethical practices. I paid a $450 deposit for my move. The carrier never showed up, never called and when finally reached, was not going to be at my home on the appointed date and American Discount Movers could not provide another carrier. They tried to get me to find someone else to be at my home the next day because they would have a carrier there then. This was not possible. In order to get my refund, I was instructed I had to send a cancellation notice for it to be processed. Then, my refund was denied because I sent a cancellation notice on the day the move was supposed to occur. I only sent the cancellation because their carrier was a no show. This practice is in breach of their contract. If they do not provide service, I am entitled to my refund. Instead, they claim because I cancelled, per their suggestion, I forfeit my refund. I am appalled at the practice of this company. They lie and deceive in order to make money. I filed a complaint with the Florida Attorney General and urge all other customers to do the same. This company should not be allowed to be in business.
