I am an executive...

I am an executive that moved recently from NJ to FL. I hired a sham moving company which was ripping off the trademark of a reputable firm. I am now 3 weeks without my furniture, and now the company I used has no idea where my very valuable possessions are - or when I can expect them !?!?!? I need help! Police won't file theft charges.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Florida - but it was interstate - they picked up in NJ and have offices in several states including Florida

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

Constant emails constant phone calls my sons calling - they are complete scam artists. I have proof of trademark infringement and fraud

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I need someone to handle this for me - I work 70 hours a week and can't deal with this stress. All of my paintings and furnishings are lost :( sur

Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help - do you have signed contract with this company? what were the terms of the contract?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 26 days ago
I have signed yes, and nothing I read makes sense. They lied about every part of their services - they are not "Spartan Van Lines" they are brokers.

On the contract that you signed - did it say how long it would take to get your belongings to Florida? Did it say their company would bring your belongings or they would contract out?

Thank you for choosing SPARTAN VAN LINES. We are happy to provide you, the Customer, this estimate based on the list of items and services you requested at the time this estimate was prepared. This BINDING estimate is based upon the specific items to be moved and services ordered as listed on the estimate.

Please carefully review this estimate for accuracy. If you make any changes to the list of services ordered or the items to be moved, you must notify the estimato r prior to your move date so an updated estimate can be issued to you and last minute price changes can be avoided. Accuracy of your estimate is wholly dependent upon the completeness of the specific items you inform the estimator that you are moving. Be advised that any changes to your order will result in a change to your estimated price.For example, if you add additional items to be moved or order additional services at the last minute your price will increase accordingly. In order to avoid last minute price changes we urge you to notify your salesperson if you wish to make any changes to the services ordered and number of items to be moved. If on the date of the move you order last minute services or tender additional items to be moved the mover will issue you a new updated written estimate reflecting the change to the total estimated price.
