A guy I know just moved in down the street from me. He got his Chinese friend to phone the movers and ask for a price from A to B. They told him 2-3 thousand. He agreed.
They come to his house put the stuff on the blue truck…and take him to his new home and then ask for 15,000nt. I come outside to help with the translating…
They tell me 3,000 is for a small vehicle. I ask what’s smaller than a blue truck and he points to a van.
So you quote him 3,000 on the phone and then drive a different vehicle than the one you quoted?
He says all of his stuff wouldn’t have fitted into the van…uhh yeah…but how’d you know that if without coming and looking first?
And if you assumed someone moving houses couldn’t fit everything into the van then why quote the price for it?
Well, the short of it was that’s their scam. You phone them ask for a price…they say about 3,000…then later they jack up the price astronomically and make up excuses.
They argued for about 20-30min the movers lowered their price from 15k to 10k then 8k and finally settled for 5k because that’s all the guy had on him.
F*&kers…they wanted 15,000nt for an hour’s worth of work? You’d think with all the money they make they could afford to buy shoes…or toothpaste for that matter.
