i have lead generation companies, they just ripped off.
After searching leads i signed up with Easymove, they charge per transaction, you not paying for leads.It is fare enough.
it is better to pay from my earning and be with money in my pocket, rather that without and getting those stupid leads
I have, in the last month, figured out what went wrong with my move on February 24th. Correira Brothers did not show up for the move, and they felt they didn't have to, even after a verbal agreement on the phone and exchanged emails, saying they would (for $400). This is because, apparently, on Feb. 2nd I had visited Billy.com for some quotes. (That was what was asked of me, had I visited them, during the present dispute, when Correira Bros. showed up for a posed, fake check for damage.) Now, it must be said that I made no agreement with anyone but Correira Brothers, which I thought was a legitimate moving company, but I did request quotes from several sites, even forgetting which was which. Apparently, when you enter sites like this, any even legitimate moving company who signs up there too, and pays dues, may auction off your move to the lowest, I repeat: the lowest bidder possible. And this is legal, I ask? Moreover, where has the honorable contract disappeared to, nowadays? On the Internet, one falls prey to predators, and moving companies who sign up at sites like this must be brought down. How dare they use unsuspecting persons, such as myself, who also happens to be disabled and a Social Security recipient. The world out there has turned evil, my friends. EVIL. More below...Here's what happened with my move:
This was the worst moving experience I have ever had. I waited for hours for an appointment we had made over the phone. By the way, I'll state from the outset that I am disabled and could not move the furniture on my own.
Some guy comes by, an hour late, and says the moving team would be on their way soon, but he wanted to survey things. I wait another two hours and finally called the company.
Diana says that there was some dispute about the price, so they weren't going to come! I had no idea what she was talking about, and I told her so. I said, look, I need to move, and I have to work online at the new place tonight (besides, I had told the then-present landlord that I would be out that day)!
I had very little furniture, some to be thrown away, and they charged 400 bucks. The furniture I kept was all less than a year old. But they weren't going to come! After I called, they reconsidered and decided to send two guys in a car to collect the money -- without a receipt -- and they promised they would be back with a truck.
They show up an hour later with a U-Haul truck and didn't even cover my brand new furniture with blankets -- although I even offered them one. No, they said, there were blankets in the truck (which they did not use). My furniture, one beautiful wooden table that was never, ever used and a glass kitchen table -- same thing -- never used (I live by myself). The furniture all got completely scratched and dented, and I even mentioned it to one of the guys. He said, "Oh, that's not a big deal. That can all be fixed with furniture pens."
Can you imagine that?!! Why should I spend 400 bucks to have other people move my furniture when every single piece of it, thereafter, would have to be "fixed" with furniture pens?! Besides, the damage they did to the glass table and the beautiful wooden table I mentioned cannot, I repeat CANNOT be fixed with furniture pens?!!
So then, I call the company as I was looking over my furniture in the next 12 days, and I am feeling heartbroken. (I bought the furniture with my Social Security Disability money, and will not be able to replace this for a long time! Plus, I moved into an efficiency unit and could not even fit everything, so I already had to throw away have of my sectional couch!) The couch, too, showed up with all kinds of velour rubbed off it because they didn't even care, apparently, when squeezing it in the door.
Diana and some Correira brother, the one who showed up to "survey" that day of the move, and then decided not to do my move, show up (a day late, again -- after a cancelled appointment), look at my stuff, take pictures, and then, don't get back to me at all, even after this dispute. It's been a week, again! I am so poor and was disabled for two years! I am trying to get back on my feet and had to borrow the money for my move!
I feel totally jipped; I do not even believe, anymore, that Correira is a legitimate moving company at all. I think they customarily contract things out, and feel fine in so doing if one even enters Billy.com's site, and never even contacts other companies -- especially in relation to supposed "idiots" or "undesirables" like me -- Social Security recipients, and they don't give a CRAP about you or your furniture! They used me!
This was not only NOT worth 400 bucks; they should be giving me some money back by now, and they should be ASHAMED of themselves for using an already disadvantaged person and RUINING her BRAND NEW furniture! Can you believe the AUDACITY of these people, too -- they actually asked me if I visited BillyBob's website or something like that. The name wasn't even right. (This offered up as an excuse, presumably, for why they contracted me out to "Jack and Jill's," as Diana told me, a company, which I can't even find on the Internet now!) I had visited several sites a month prior to my move, to get quotes, but I ABSOLUTELY, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, made any contract with ANY of them, neither verbal, nor written -- I had ONLY made a verbal contract with Correira Brothers, over the phone. I TRUSTED them, and I WAITED for them for SIX hours -- they almost made me late to a BRAND NEW JOB! They could have screwed up my life, not only my furniture and my NERVES! The stress with this move was the WORST I have EVER experienced, and I have moved out of the country three times and worked abroad; I also drove myself across country three times and even had my horses shipped. I have never seen the likes of this level of lack of professional behavior with regards to a move. Are all their reviews fake, then? One must pause to wonder...
I got ripped off by one of their suggested movers. A 450.00 quote cost me 1220.00 in the end. The company was River Moving and Storage, criminals.
i got licensed movers calling me very quickly, and got a reallygood price from one. The were careful with my stuff, and I paid what we agreed on. I would definitely use it again.
These guys gave me free referrals; I tried it got one out of 10 i believe; not bad so far, but it gets infinitely worse.
When free referrals was up they asked my firm if I wanted to pre-load money to pay for supposedly "vetted referrals)."
No problem loaded 200.00 Billy whoever this scam artist crook is sent me a few more referrals which I declined to purchase as I was busy at xmas.
I purchased one more lead a no go/ but then the leads stopped. deadend contacted 'Billy" three times no response.
They are not in the business of selling legit leads buy just that first 200 hit just like insurance and they they move on to the next sucker.
Do your business a favor take a pass from this very bad actor
