this if you say so some break and as Jim suspected we’ve got to pay now so it should be full unloading so I have to pay the balance before unloading and if we don’t pay for stairs and heavy stuff yoga alone another this beef if I don’t pay all these charges you’re just gonna unload my stuff here yeah like back in the house no okay to have the audacity to even say that you’re going to unload someone’s goods on their lawn is just incredulous time for step two in our plan Meghan says they’ll get their money at the new place the stress that I would be going through right now if I were the customer unbelievable okay they’re leaving wait till you see the surprise we have for them okay should I start downloading if you want to loan the furniture on the street you go right ahead when we come back and later why our vets investigation left many of you barking mad shady moving companies are emptying the pockets of Canadians across the country okay they’re leaving so now we’re tailing one sketchy outfit our chase car has them in sight that’s stiffed us and many people with hidden charges behind them okay even threatened to dump our furniture if we don’t pay those fees husky movers have been getting away with this stuff but not today so we’re gonna have it out with them what will they do when we turn the tables and refuse to pay those extra charges they’ve insisted on not unloading the furniture until they’re paid we’re not going to pay the thing we’re at our new place there’s the truck time to lay out the plan to Megan our undercover customer the sidewalk in front of the house is where you need to do this okay will there be a showdown on the street at a certain point we’ll come out with cameras rolling Megan takes a stand I’m not going to pay any more money for these extra charges that I didn’t agree to you should have told me earlier Lee it’s a standoff Sam’s refusing to unload our stuff he gets headquarters back of the line but Husky isn’t moving on the bill I don’t want to pay these charges time for me to make my move remember we’ve already paid them 250 bucks we just don’t want to pay for the charges they never told us about on the phone but as they’ve done to so many Husky puts the gun to our head that’s right they’ll bring our furniture back to the first house and unload it how do they put it back in the house my name is Tom Harrington and I worked for marketplace at CBC okay and we know what you guys are up to and what your company has been up to how can you go into a house on moving day to do this to anybody I don’t know if you want to call the company let’s put him on speaker what kind of operation is this that you’re running this isn’t a proper moving company what was explained to the foot on the phone the contract over the phone was $45 an hour plus an hour for travel time everything else is included that’s what was said on the phone that’s what she agreed to these fellows come in and her a contract which she has 30 seconds to read and can’t see everything in the first place then they start saying oh we’re going to add for things like stairs yep hung up but the mystery man on the phone is calling the shots they should I start downloading if you want to load the furniture on the street you go right ahead if that’s where you think if that’s what you think you should do is that what he said to do Ethan he will take the legal actions against him so he’s gonna sue her maybe we should sue this customer did and I won and I feel good just like us charaluta t Bakula got stuck with hidden charges this is outrageous I was not expecting these charges the judge agreed saying that sneaking them into a last-minute contract was not fair Carroll sued City Hawks movers and storage guess what sane people behind husky movers sam says he’s just following orders even if it

means dumping the stuff right in front of our new place he could be dining under the stars tonight at this point if all the dining furniture ends up there they’ve made good on this threat so that’s it you’re gonna leave it on the lawn yeah as for seeing them in court not worth our time so we pay the entire bill we’ll keep the receipt if we want them to move our stuff inside that’ll cost extra enough hang anymore they get the heck out of Dodge but not so fast the showdowns not over we say in four up ahead yep we follow their truck because it’s our best lead to the boss we end up on the outskirts of town so there’s two big husky mover trucks and discover a Corral of battered trucks our movers leave but we notice the Husky brand we check back in another day they like that Ursa husky movers truck right there and the Husky name on that truck is painted over wonder what else they’re covering up time to round up some answers why do you do speed we have to stop you have to stop this and later our marketplace investigation into vet bills continues we’re investigating a shady moving company that’s more like a moving target husky movers hit us with hidden charges and dumped our furniture we call the owner Harpreet Singh he says they are upfront about the charges but declines to come on camera saying he’s in California we’re not giving up though we’re staking out another moving day no trucks today they must be very busy we hope the trucks will return because when they do there our plan is to deliver our own charges to husky movers for misleading the public with hidden charges threatening to hold furniture hostage and unprofessional service we’re waiting for another showdown but it’s almost sundown will they be a no-show they are back holy and there’s a fancy black sedan we’ve done our homework it’s a company car is the owner inside hey I doing I’m Tom Harrington from market flakes and I’m your with husky movers no you sure you are what are you doing in this parking lot just see it in the chicken you yeah sure no no you’re with husky movers what’s your name what’s your name why he won’t give us his name but we give him our charges here’s here’s I’m gonna give you this is our hey this is our bill these are our charges this is for misleading people missing the public lot with hidden charges what are you sure to read this because this is what you do to Canadians men no no no there it is it off your cameras no answer the question why do you do is to be we have to stop you have to stop this I’ll just put this in your windshield he can run but he can’t hide later sources tell us that was Harpreet Singh the owner of husky movers we leave another copy of our bill behind to make sure he gets the message but maybe he is already since we started poking around husky movers charges for stairs and heavy items are posted on their website but remember in the Wild West of the moving business it can be a treacherous road to dodge your own moving day nightmare here’s our Survival Guide watch out for low prices you can be hit with hidden charges later demand a written estimate and a copy of the contract before you move get proof they’ve done insurance to protect you and your stuff deposits are usually paid before moving day and do your homework check out reviews online we’re back digging into our investigation into what you pay at the vet last week marketplace brought in Marshall a real watchdog to reveal five ways you may be paying too much at the vet by the end Marshall racked up a bill of over $500 in questionable charges and boy did we hear from you in one of our strongest reactions ever people coast-to-coast told us they could relate to being overcharged and our barking mad can’t believe the level of discrepancy

between pet beds the government must step in and regulate this industry as a veterinarian I found that your program just scratched the surface veterinary medicine today is primarily about making money we sure heard from a lot of vets who disagreed vets didn’t go to school for that many years to ripoff clients are owners aware of how often vets actually / costs down to bare minimums and provide services free of charge and our investigation continues across the country you pitched in and shared your own vet bills – and what do they reveal a range of prices for similar procedures across Canada for a wellness exam you’re paying between $50 and 81 when it comes to dental cleaning for cats prices ranged from three hundred and forty dollars for Scout to six hundred and fifty-four for dusty as for x-rays Dexter’s owners spend a hundred and forty three bucks while deja Vu’s x-rays cost two hundred and fifty seven at the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association here’s what President Jim Berry had to say there’s a lot of different factors that roll into cost so everything from cost of living where you live if you have factors like what equipment is is being used so the different procedures that are being asked for in clients right now basically really expect and rightly so I think have very high quality medicine even so when it comes to saving money at the vet it might pay to shop around and you can check out our cross-country comparison anytime online next week on marketplace oh there’s that smell again we’re back checking in again casting hotels promises Wow that doesn’t look good does it oh okay with your help so we’re really really clean I couldn’t believe my eyes how dirty hotels cleaned up their act could this be the same stain as last year it’s possible how much better the bath man looks clean or worse why hasn’t anyone got the message you have to clean the sheets can things get you
