Nightmare moving experience

Please DO NOT use this company.

I was moving from a 3 bedroom house into a new property. I thought this would be a common situation for most experienced moving companies. On moving day, the 3 movers spent hours on the phone with Niko arguing about the terms of our agreement (confirmed a month before in writing and on the phone) and then unloaded the 12 boxes they had slowly loaded onto their truck, said they wouldn't do the move - and drove away!

Only after I threatened litigation did they return with 5 men, 2 trucks and talk of higher rates.

The movers smoked on the truck with my possessions on board, and didn't pack their truck properly, so multiple trips had to be done to the storage lockers ( which I was forced to rent because Niko didn't follow through on his promise to store the furniture on the truck for a day.) Only with my help was this first part of the job finished before midnight.

I thought Niko would try extra hard to make up for the first part of the move, but instead, he also backed out of the second part of the move (from the lockers to the new house) saying his men weren't available as he said they would be, but he could do it another day. Instead, I hired another moving company as I should have from the beginning - this company's 3 men fit everything onto one truck and unloaded it at my house in the same time as the 5 men sent by Niko and his 2 trucks.

This whole experience was absolutely unbelievable. I don't understand how a business can operate like this.
