Here is what can happen in this business. You can come and meet me anytime at my office 21 Eskow Road Worcester,Mass. Sometimes vehicles will be late due to truck problems other issued snowstorm, traffic, accident etc. BUT THE FOLLOWING WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
Do not use Jim Ford trucking under any circumstances. I paid him $1750 cash up front to get my car shipped. He was supposed to pay $1500 to the drivers when they picked up my vehicle. The drivers later told me that nobody ( Jim) was present when they picked up my car, so they weren’t paid. He had just parked it at some other location. The transport company was B-line Trucking, Russian owned and operated. 18 days
(a week late) I get a call from B-line Trucking in Vancouver, WA; A guy named Roman Netesov, who says I must pay them $1500 cash or they will hold my car and refuse to deliver. Additionally he said that he would charge me storage at a high daily rate and then if I refused he would drive it back to PA. I contacted Jim Ford and he said it was just a paperwork mixup. He said he would refund me the $1500 that he had not paid the drivers, and That I could pay them the $1500 ransom they were demanding and that the check to me would go in the mail as soon as I had paid the drivers. So I paid the drivers and now after repeated promises to pay me, it is now 11/9 and I have not been paid and Mr Ford will not answer my messages to his phone. I have been defrauded out of $1500 and the police say its just a civil matter and refuse to get involved.
Jim is a smooth talker and a liar and a crook. He has set up an elaborate trap for the innocent consumer!! He is probably very closely allied to the driving company and they both claim to be innocent even though he was supposed to pay the drivers up front and the drivers hold a contract which clearly states that Jim Ford was supposed to pay them C.O.D. ( not the car owner) I will be notifying the FBI, Police and three different state Attorney Generals’ office in the coming days, as well as filing a complaint with the district magistrate. These government agencies will likely do very little but its all I have left.
DO NOT PAY UP FRONT!!!!
DO NOT USE ANY BROKERS OR TRANSPORTERS YOU FOUND USING A SEARCH ON THE INTERNET!!They are all running the same scams!!
USE ONLY A LOCAL REPUTABLE MOVING COMPANY!!!
