They are a big time money extortioners.The initial quote was given for 1500$, when they arrived to pick the items, they said inventory list provided is not correct and they will charge 3600$ for the things. The things missed in the inventory, were 2 side tables , 4 bags and a chair. Charging 2000$ more for that was too much.
Movers said, the truck has cubic feet markers, after loading the truck, we will measure the cubic feet and charge.We said ok. After loading the items, cubic feet marker was at 350.We were thinking, they are gonna charge for 350 cubic feet, 4.75 $ per cubic feet, which is 350 * 4.75=1557.5 $. Instead they charged for 650 cubic feet,suddenly adding 300 cubic feet, saying 300 cubic feet for the extra space loaded above the drivers cabin.
We tried to explain him, the space above the drivers cabin, was not even half the space occupied by loaded items. We asked them to charge at least half of 350 cubic feet for that extra space on the top of drivers cabin.
Joshua, the mover over phone started shouting, saying the space above the drivers cabin is 300 cubic feet. Joshua started yelling at me, saying"Do you think iam lying? Do you think, i dont know the size of my truck??
My friend said, "Do you think, we dont have eyes?the truck is right in front of me, and the size of the space above the drivers cabin, is not 300 cubic feet ."
Arguments went back and forth between me,moving company person Joshua and the company owner Yaron. I tried to explain them,and what they are doing is not fair. Joshua and yaron were shouting and yelling at me, thinking that by raising their voice they can get things their way.Dont go to alpine movers.You will end up losing money and all your stuff broken.They charged me 4000$ for 1500$ work. They try to lure you by giving a really low quote initially,and later will charge you like hell
