SCAM! AVOID AT ALL COSTS! Unfortunately I fell for this scam run by two “moving” companies, currently using the names Exclusive Van Lines and Bridgeview Van Lines. These people are thieves who use the moving industry as their method of theft. Based on a FaceTime walk though of all the things in my apartment to be moved, they quoted me a price of $2,900 for an intercity move, somewhat less than what other companies quoted, but not a lot less. Though my lease was ending, they wouldn’t give me a date for when they would do the move until a few days before. However as those days came and went I kept calling them, they kept promising me to call me back within a specific time, and they never did. With just a couple days left and no response from them, I was forced to scramble to look for last minute alternates. They did finally show up with one day left. I was so relived they actually came, and really had no alternatives, so that when they announced that even though I had 10% FEWER boxes than they estimated, they were going to charge me a total of $6,170, more than double what they had quoted me (and a lot more than any other moving company I had talked to months before). At this point I had no alternative, so I agreed. When they arrived at the moving destination, they demanded that before opening the truck and letting me even see my belongs that: a) I sign a document saying that I had already received all my belongings, and that they were all in good condition, b) I pay the remaining balance of $1,270 in cash, and c) that I pay them an additional $500 in cash for what they said was a long hallway (it was less than 50 feet, and they knew all along that this was going into a big apartment building). They made it very clear that they were holding my belongs hostage until I did all these things, and if I didn’t do them, I’d never see any of my belongs again. The movers put me on the phone with their boss in the Bronx, who in full Mafia style was really threatening and nasty, and dared me to call the police, and told his men to just drive away. In order to get my belongings, I had to do everything they said. My boxes were beat-up, with the fragile arrows upside-down, etc. There weren’t even box numbers or my name on anything – and so I didn’t get all my stuff (though they did give me a TV that wasn’t mine, which I had them take back – but it isn’t going to do its owner any good, since the screen was smashed in). And needless to say, several things of mine that I did get were broken. All in all, $900 of my possessions were lost or broken, and the “insurance policy” that they claimed to have offered me a total of less than $150 to compensate for everything they had lost or broken. So I paid $6,670 for a job with a guaranteed price of $2,970 and the worst moving experience of my life – these people intentionally underquote to lure people in, and then hold your belongs hostage as they extort you for way more than you’d ever pay for any other mover. I have reached out to the district attorney’s offices of my old and new home to see if there’s any way to criminally prosecute these people for fraud, or at least put them out of business. P.S. If you look at their online reviews you’ll see other people with similar experiences – but you’ll also see many good reviews – which I’m pretty sure are fake reviews they’ve done on themselves.

This company took advantage of and ripped off my elderly parents. I wish I had read all of the other one-star reviews before using Bridgeview, as they apparently practice this sort of manipulation on everyone who hires them. My parents had some belongings that they simply wanted to ship cross-country as they are preparing to live closer to home. The first customer service person quoted one price that we agreed to. Then we had to speak to a “Quality Assurance” (LOL) person who raised the original quote and made us add on to our deposit, but “guaranteed” us that we would get a discount on pickup and drop off, because he was reserving us way more square-footage than my parents’ belongings would take up. I should have stopped the process right there, but these nice-sounding, smooth-talking customer service people assured me that we wouldn’t pay higher than our quote, and that we would most certainly pay less. When the items were picked up, the drivers were to collect half of the remaining balance of what were were told we would owe. The “quality assurance” man gave us a worst-case scenario of what we would owe at that time, and again assured us that it would be lower based on our list of items to ship. Unfortunately, my elderly father was the only one there at pick-up (I was to be on the receiving end), and the driver fast-talked and manipulated him into thinking he had to pay a couple hundred MORE than the original quote. AND my dad opted to NOT ship some of the items on the original list from when the square footage was calculated. So, then, once the items arrived for delivery, we had to pay the same amount that they talked my father into in order to finish the delivery. And now nobody at Bridgview Van Lines will answer my emails or inquiries. They originally told me they were waiting for a bill of lading from the trucking company, who, by the way, refused to leave any receipts or copies of any paperwork at either pick up or drop off. (Who does that?) Now they are completely ghosting me. DO NOT USE BRIDGEVIEW VAN LINES!

0n July 5th 2023, I contacted Bridgeview Van Lines LLC, regarding an interstate move from Maryland to Minnesota in September 2023. After speaking with the customer service representative, we decided to utilize their services for our move. They shared with us that you are a "NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED EXPERT in the moving and relocation industry. With a friendly attitude and a confident manner, our carriers will exceed your expectations and make your experience smooth and PROBLEM FREE. We are the best at getting the job done right and without hassle." We felt great knowing this and moved forward with a video estimate and sent an initial payment. On September 11th, we received a quality assurance call prior to the pick up of our goods which was scheduled on September 16, 2023. Customer service informed us about the possibility of revising the original estimate of 2800 cubic feet required for the move. He assured complete utilization of a full truck promising a just charge - we were assured that we would "only pay for the space we used" on the truck. At that time, the customer service representative added square footage to our contract and we paid additional fees bringing the amount paid to Bridgeview Van Lines, LLC to a bit over $6K. He placed us on hold, but apparently could still hear us speaking as my husband and I commented that this seems a bit like all of the horrible experiences we had read about and that, here it is..., the last minute increase in costs now that we are close to the moving date. When he addressed us next, he said he had overheard our conversation and he admonished us. He firmly stated that Bridgeview is not a predatory company. He proclaimed that your company takes great pride in itself as a "family" and that everyone who works with them is vetted and part of the Bridgeview family with shared goals of service. He further stated that the company is well aware of the stress that accompanies moving, especially long distance moves and works hard to minimize this stress as the reputation of the company is paramount. (They should have this phone call on tape as we were notified it was being recorded and I requested they maintain the recording). On Friday, September 15th, 2023, at approximately 8:30 pm (I have a record of this call) a driver called and asked if I "really needed a full truck for my stuff" and how far did I "live from Baltimore." I stated that our recent call with Bridgeview indeed revealed that we would need most of a 53' foot truck, but were told we would only pay for what we needed. He said he had no idea who Bridgeview Van Lines LLC was and he did not work for them, The moving process only became more of a mess following this phone call. I called Bridgeview Van Lines LLC. I was told by customer service that the company they sold our contract to must abide by the contract I signed with Bridgeview. We paid for packing/material and disassembly/reassembly services. Not only did they not have ANY packing material (stated they did not have a contract to pack/unpack which we added to and paid you for on our contract with you), but my husband was required to load and unload the truck as there were no movers available for the final load when the truck arrived in Minnesota. When I conveyed this to the driver that you sold our contract to, he actually laughed and stated that he had never heard of "Bridgeview" and Bridgeview had no "power" over him. Bridgeview did nothing to assist us! Upon the request of their customer service, I sent a video of the truck that arrived at our home in Maryland with more than half of the truck already filled with another customer's load. Again, Bridgeview Van Lines, LLC did nothing to assist us. This does not seem like "family" to me.I believe they were not truthful describing the relationship with the company they sold our contract to. I do not believe they vetted this company properly/thoroughly, nor did they determine that they were a trustworthy company. They sold our contract to an unethical company. I am committed to prevent others, especially senior citizens with fixed incomes-like us, from becoming victims of your predatory practices which are the total opposite of what you promised, which was, "a friendly attitude and a confident manner, carriers (that) will exceed your expectations and make your experience smooth and PROBLEM FREE."

Bridgeview is the best long-distance moving company I definitely recommend! I spoke to Tony he was the best, he told me he would make it stress free. My last job transfer I lost half of my things and it took the movers 92 days to deliber. Bridgeview didn’t tell me a delivery date but I got my things going 11 days later I was going about 2900 miles
