A local couple arranged for All My Sons Moving & Storage to store their household items in their secure, climate controlled facility, while they sold one home and built another. When everything was delivered to their new home, it was nearly all “damaged or destroyed” with damage from “urine, fecal matter, apparent vomit, cigarette burns…” & more, according to a newly filed lawsuit.

In November of 2016, Plaintiffs  Milton and Alisha Erickson were scheduled to close on sale of their home in Fairview, TN, and construct a new home in Franklin, TN. The couple  arranged for most belongings to be stored with All My Sons Moving & Storage of Nashville, until their new home was complete. The agreement was their property would be stored at a secure, climate-controlled facility owned by the company, at 2709 Locust Street in Nashville, which is described as “neat as a pin” in advertisements, and described that property is “carefully” stored in “sanitized vaults, per the website.

In March of 2018, as All My Sons Moving & Storage was moving the furniture into the Plaintiffs new home, it was noticed that much of the property was “damaged or destroyed”, according to the newly filed lawsuit. The suit alleges the property was returned with damage from “urine, fecal matter, apparent vomit, cigarette butts, burn holes, stains, moisture of unknown origin, and heat damage.”

The Plaintiffs report that in the process of moving the, now contaminated, property into the newly constructed home and unpacking it, the moving company’s agents scattered fecal matter and other debris from the furniture about the home.

The Plaintiffs are alleging breach of contract and fraud, and are seeking $450,000.00 in Circuit Court. This is the 30th lawsuit against All My Sons Moving & Storage filed since 2000. Two others are currently open before the court at this time, including a $1,000,000 lawsuit alleging movers were using drugs in a client’s garage involving a spoon, and then holding their property hostage in the back of a moving truck the client paid double the quoted price to return it. Some of the more recent suits have been dismissed due to an arbitration clause in the contracts signed between the parties.
