Rickships Reviews

We worked with RickShips to deliver furniture from our home in North Carolina to our daughter in St. Louis. We had to revise the delivery date and they were willing to work with us on that. All of the people picking up and delivering were easy-going, very careful with the furniture, and enjoyable to work with. We highly recommend this company.

RickShips is the most professional shipper I have ever worked with. They are efficient, reliable, and careful. We use their services for shipping furniture and fragile items between North Carolina and New York City and have been delighted with the results. Highly recommended.

- Bud Barnett

The two drivers broke the mirror backing to my Stickley display case while in transit. And the drivers outright lied saying something along the lines of "Our boss will contact you after he gets some quotes to replace the mirror". Well that was weeks ago and I have received no call, no email. The drivers it turns out were very sneaky, deceptive and therefore very unprofessional, DON'T BE FOOLED. I had to go to the expense to have the mirror replaced. I DO NOT RECOMMEND USING RICKSHIPS!!!

I had many very good experiences with shipping. It is fine if all goes well, but do not expect them to accept any responsibility if there is damage or other problems. Rick himself does not try to make things right and is frequently rude.
- Kevin Decker

This company damaged our shipment and they did not , I repeat, they did not take any responsibility nor they paid for repair,, truly believe they are not even insured. They rather blamed the damage on us after item was on their possession for a month before delivering on the other side. Avoid the headache by not using them. Bad business practices,,
- Ira Galvis

I have engaged Rick Ships for several inbound deliveries. Scheduling the pick-ups was easy, and all items received timely. I recommend Rick Ships without hesitation.

***BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY *** I requested a quote from this rick ships, now known as metro white glove. The first bid I received was reasonable enough. However, they tried to “bait and switch” me! I received a different bid because I was told the bed was “too heavy”. In my request for a bid, I fully disclosed the weight and the fact the bed was on the second floor. After receiving the second bid that almost doubled, I called and was told it was “their mistake” and they’d “fix the problem”. It’s been FOUR DAYS! I’ve called and left several messages to see what’s going on, but no response. BUSTED!!
