The movers called and changed my move date

Yep, the one thing I didnít want to happen. They were supposed to come on the 9th. I scheduled everything around them. I called and scheduled them in JUNE!!

He wanted to move it to Aug 20th. I said no way. Weíre doing it the 10th. Iím guessing itíll change and Iíll be stuck with the 20th. Hereís what gets me, first, he was complaining about how busy summer is. I know, thatís why I called so far ahead. And, he was saying he had moves come up. So, you let people butt in front of me? Not cool dude.

Iíd understand (kind of) if it was a worker shortage. If that was the case, allow for it. But he made it sound like other moves were more important.

I really want to call back and ask what kind of discount theyíre going to give me for my inconvenience.

Iím livid. Livid.

I am livid for you. There is no excuse. Unfortunately customer service sucks. People just donít care anymore and do not take pride in their work. Are the movers thinking they can make more money on other jobs and therefore throwing you lower in the queue? I really hope you get delivery on the 10th. And after delivery I would write a review on the company.

And is he doing it because he knows you are moving out of your parents' house so he figures you don't HAVE to be out that day vs. you sold your house and MUST be out?
Doesn't matter. You planned ahead and they accepted the job and the date. He needs to stick to it.

You are a teacher. You need to be settled so you can be moved in and ready to make a good transition to a school year for x number of students whose lives have been in turmoil all last year. Make the movers live up to their agreement!!!

I'm so sorry, Greyhound Girl. I hope it works out for the 10th.

This has not been a smooth process for you! Soon enough you will be settled into your new home and all of the struggles getting there will be memories!

Oh no! That's so irritating. I can understand if something had happened but it's so rude.

That is so annoying! I hope it works out. Iíd be really upset too.
I know when my friends moved they used a pod. It was suppose to arrive on a specific date but it didnít end up arriving until like two weeks later. So they went without a lot of their stuff. Then I guess the truck with the pod couldnít get to the street because it was too narrow. It was just a mess!

Well can you call around and see if you can get another company to move you? I'd go onto YELP and let people know the lack of customer service they give. I don't care that you are moving from your parents's home, you hired him to do the job on the 10th. What does your contract say about changing the date? I would do all I could to get it on the 10th. Wishing you luck. Next year this will be a blur that you don't remember.

BTW-----are you sure Aikman didn't set this up? Was he saving his and paid the guy to change the date
