A Couple of Movers Moving Company Complaint Group on Facebook started this petition to Ashley Moody and

Every year thousands of families pack up locally. Their worldly processions are loaded up on a truck by contracted strangers and driven to a new destination.

If you are on the lucky side of things, the move will be perfect. But many us end up on the other side of perfect. Despite assurances by the local moving companies, furniture isn't protected and is damaged, our homes were damaged by careless workers, and boxes will be unloaded smashed and torn. Sometimes items will just go missing.

Problems are brushed off as “don’t worry, you can just file a claim” but they are empty promises when the company won't answer your calls or respond to your e-mail. In the case of A Couple of Movers, many of us were unable to leave voicemails at the extensions given to me because the voicemailbox was never set up. E-mails were ignored and despite the admin of the Facebook page seeing our messages, reviews, and comments, they were ignored as well. 

In some cases, workers for A Couple of Movers demanded cash instead of credit cards to more easily defraud customers and refused to unload the truck until they were paid. Rates were sometimes quadruple the quoted amount. One woman reported feeling sexually harassed. 

These are not problems specific to one company. There is an industry-wide network of brokers, contractors, and "moving companies" that engage in deceptive practices knowing that many people will just give up. Moving companies should be held to the same consumer practices of other businesses and monitor their employees to ensure that the customer's needs are met. Sending out surveys that don't get responses doesn't meet that standard. 

I challenge you to start holding these companies accountable. I challenge you to step up your game and to support the local families impacted by these companies.
