Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon. I'm sorry to see that you are in this very bad situation. Yes, you have a legal case against both the broker and the moving company. Your written agreement with the movers should have a delivery date. If that date has not been met, then that is a breach of contract. You can sue the mover and the broker for the return of your money and also the cost of repairing any damage that they have caused to your furnishings. The broker can be joined in the suit as an agent for the company. In the meantime, it would be a good idea to contact another more reputable moving company to pick up your property from where it's being stored, and move it to where it is supposed to go.

No. We are not permitted to recommend professionals. I can send to a list of attorneys in your county which are on-line. Or you may ask a friend who knows local attorneys. I can do that even after you enter a rating for this assistance.
