My wife and I have moved twice internationally within the last 10 years. In our prior moves the movers were professional, our things were moved with care, and the final price for the moves was very similar to what was quoted. In August we move within NH (about 14 miles) with Cormier Movers and were very disappointed on all accounts.
We ended up with thousands of dollars of damage to our things (including some sentimental items), and damage to the home we moved out of and the new home we moved into. Cormier also lost our silverware, a few cutco knives, and other kitchen items. Cormier suggested they would only compensate us for a small fraction of the value of the damaged and lost items (base on the weight rather than the value).
In addition, Cormier charged us nearly double what they quoted for the move. The owner of the company did a thorough walk-through of our three bedroom home and provided a quote for $2,475 for packing, moving, and unpacking our home. However, the final price charged was $4,208, approximately 70% above the quote.
The crew was very unprofessional, unproductive, and did not appear to be experienced. The lead mover in charge of the crew was lazy and provided his inexperienced crew no direction. They were supposed to have everything packed and loaded into the truck by mid-day, and have us unpacked by the afternoon. When I saw very little was getting done and the crew was moving painfully slow or just standing around I started directing them- assigning different members of the crew to different tasks (packing boxes, moving things from certain rooms, loading the truck with things ready to go, etc). I asked one of the guys to move all the boxes out of the basement and forgot he was in there. Two hours later I remember I hadn’t seen him and went back down to the basement to find him still there.
We’re appalled with how poorly this move was executed. We spent much more than quoted, are out thousands of dollars in damages, and will not using this company in the future.
