  • Florida booming with 'deceptive' moving companies as people flock to Sunshine State, officials say

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Over three months after moving into his new home in Daytona Beach, some corners of Bill Orrender’s house are still empty. He was expecting the moving company to deliver his stuff in seven days.Now, it's been over 100. "I feel very, almost hopeless to a point. Because I don’t know where to turn," he said. WESH 2 sat down with Orrender, who said the movers loaded up his belongings on May 9, and that’s the last time he saw them. "So it’s having to rebuild everything at this point," he said. He said he ended up working with two moving companies. "I did a Google search obviously and it came up Nationwide Moving. Which I thought that was the actual company that was going to handle my business. It actually was a broker from what I later found out," Orrender said. He hired a broker, Nationwide Moving Services, based out of Delray Beach. They then contracted a different company that did the actual move: Confidant Movers LLC, based out of Aventura. Orrender said he agreed to a price with the broker, but when the contractor showed up, none of the prices matched what I had agreed to. They had a different contract in hand. In fact, the new contract didn’t have a total written in at all. Orrender says the movers weighed in: "They said, 'We’ll straighten all this out. Just go ahead and sign the paper.’ So I did. I took it at good faith because I had talked to these people at Nationwide numerous times," he said. Orrender says he also handed over partial payment, a cashier’s check for over $900. He was told his stuff would be delivered in a week, but then weeks and months passed with no delivery. The people he had been speaking to? The number was disconnected. Nearly three months later, he got texts from the companies with a demand for more money.

  • Movers holding belongings ‘hostage’ in missing truck, couple says By WBZ Staff Published: Aug. 9, 2

    TAUNTON, Mass. (WBZ) - A couple ready to retire to Florida says their plans have been put on hold after their moving truck – with all their belongings inside – went missing. After raising children and grandchildren, John Simmons and his wife were set to fulfill their longtime dream of moving from Massachusetts to Florida. But now, the couple wonders if they’ll ever see their belongings again. A confusing trail of calls and texts began July 31 when the moving truck with their stuff inside didn’t arrive in Florida, as expected. Simmons had hired movers from a company called Landmark out of Fort Lauderdale, and they outsourced the job to a company called United. ADVERTISEMENT One of the alleged movers started texting Simmons for more money. “He called me three days ago, and he said, ‘I left these guys. I’m on the street right now.’ He said, ‘They’re deceitful. They’re lying. They’re stealing from everybody,’” Simmons said. Simmons then called truck rental company Penske directly. He was told the moving truck had been reported stolen. The couple filed a report with Taunton Police in Massachusetts, but it feels like a search for a needle in a haystack. They have no idea where the truck is, and the picture of it matches a lot of others on the highway.

  • Don't let moving companies 'box' you in

    PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- We're coming into the peak season for moving. In fact, more people move between April and September than any other time of year. If that's you, don't get ripped off in the "moving process." Moving companies are one of the most complained about industries that 3 On Your Side hears about. "It's upsetting. It's worrisome. It's stressful. Through the years, 3 On Your Side has had a front-row seat for a variety of moving fiascos. On a recent occasion, a moving company refused to unload a consumer's household goods until more money was paid. With help from the Arizona Department of Public Safety, which regulates movers, the movers reluctantly unloaded the truck without getting a dime more than their contract said. Tierra Terry is with the Phoenix Better Business Bureau. "We had 1,200 approximately 1,200 consumer complaints just come through BBB regarding movers and moving companies." Terry said in 2020, those 1,200 complaints were just for Arizona and Southern California. So, how do you protect yourself? Research Moving Companies. "Verify the mover's claims, credentials, and professional memberships. Scammers won't be able to substantiate any good reputation online," Terry said.
