I have several copies in my e-mail and a paper copy the mover had me sign before he left. It says the first day your items can be delivered. I said 08/24/13. So that didn't bind them to that day. It will all end up costing 5800.00 I am broke and sick and alone. it is very sressfull
I don't know their address says Florida. But the actual movers says Tarzana Ca. I would have to look at my emails. I would lose my connection to you
I just checked the e-mails and it say florida
Kathleen,Before you do that, let me post an answer for your review. Then if the information I provided is not quite what you found in their documentation, you can reply to me and we can amend the response.What you are describing appears to be a 'bait and switch' operation that intentionally provides one set of numbers to hook you in, and then an another set of numbers for the actual contract. Unless something fundamentally changed on your end, and they can justify the additional costs, what you are describing happens to be against the law. As a consequence I would very strongly urge you to reach out to the California Attorney General's office, speak with the consumer protection division, and request that they investigate. You can also directly contact the California Department of Consumer Affairs below and likewise request that they look up this company for you:http://www.dca.ca.gov/As for filing for small claims, you can most definitely do so if the company has failed to honor terms, unreasonably changed the terms, and attempted to charge you more (or is now withholding your items without cause, not to mention refuses to ship them to you as contracted). Since the contract took place in California, to sue you would need to pursue them in California as well. You can sue for the costs you were exposed to, the loses to your property, and the value of items that they are unreasonably withholding. You can likewise sue in Florida if they have no physical location in California, since their head office is the location for suit if all other locations are not able to be pursued by you.Good luck.
Can I sue them in Florida? I am sick and cant get back to ca. My son lives in florida he could help me/
Kathleen,If their office is in Florida, then you are always able to sue a defendant business at their place of incorporation. That is likewise a valid option if that is where they are located.Good luck.
