I came across a critical review of City Hound Professional Movers on a Scam Reporting website – DirtyScam.com, titled ‘City Hound Professional Movers is scammer’.
DirtyScam allows anonymous submission of complaints from angry consumers and victims of scams. Since the website is hosted offshore (probably in Russia or India), we take this (negative) review against City Hound Professional Movers with a pinch of salt.
Here is what the review says –
Im 6 months pregnant and unable to move anything heavy, so I hired City Hound Professional Movers to help move furniture within my house (pub table from dining room to basement, old sectional from living room to outdoor deck area, a dresser from one bedroom to the bedroom next to it and a sectional from the master bedroom to the living room). No vehicle necessary. I appreciate that they answered the phone right away and were able to squeeze me in the same day. I was told they would be there at 5pm, which is the time that I would be back home. I received a phone call from the owner at 3:38pm letting me know that his 2 guys would be there in about 30 mins. That is way before 5pm. I let him know that I was out, but would do my best to get home earlier. His movers called me 2x at 4:11pm, then texted me a photo of my front door to let me know they were there (I found that odd). I kindly reminded them that we agreed for 5pm and that I would be there as soon as I can.I arrived home at 4:37pm and they began moving my items right away. They finished moving all of my things at 5:15pm. Even though they were here for less than an hour, they have a 2 hour min (which I knew about) and was charged $155 total. The odd thing is that I found them on craiglist and their ad states its 65/hour for a 2 man team, so I shouldve only been charged $130 total. I didnt appreciate the dishonesty, but ultimately just wanted my furniture moved to accommodate new furniture thats being delivered the very next day. If I wasnt in such a time crunch, I wouldve called around to get estimates from other movers.
