To start, when the movers arrived, they suggested I call and cancel my reservation so they could ""do the job on the side"" for less. So I was leary from the start. I had used Father & Son moving two times in St. Louis and had good experience, but the last time in Aug. 2007 it was a nightmare; apparently they are under new ownership, acc. to the movers. \r
The phone quote didn't match the quote when the movers arrived & once that had been detemined the price increased again after they were finished. They tried to scam me by charging a fuel charge that wasn't on the contract I had signed and I was never quoted that prior to the final payment time. They used a different contract to show me it was legit (yeah right). Second, they changed the price of mypiano move 3 times, saying I'd been quoted for a different size piano (not true I was very specific) and finally they wanted extra cash for some larger items that ""weren't included in the quote because of their special nature."" They also kept avoiding writing these extra fees on the contract and it was pretty clear they intended to pocket the money, or at minimum not declare it. I refused to pay some of the ""hidden"" charges, and there was a confrontation. Not pleasant. I still lansded up paying more than I should have (and it was expensive) and had to put up with their foul language and lloiud behavior on top of the whole unpleasant experience.\r
I would NEVER recomment them. BEWARE. They were dishonest and the worst moving experience ever (and I've used allot of different movers).
Pros: Nothing worth the trouble
