    Review:They quoted a total delivered price and I contracted them for the job. When the car arrived the trucker would not release the car unless I paid another 175.00 above the contracted price. The trucker and I exchanged our contract info openly and came t... [ More ]

    Subject:Tri Star
    Review:These guys are really good. I had no problems. They did what they said and were on time. I called them and ask for a quote to move my vehicle. They were prompt and got right back to me. We set a time and they were there when they said they would ... [ More ]

    Review:TriStar used unethical scam/scare tactics to try and collect additional fees. We chose a standard pickup at $0 additional cost. The vehicle was picked up within 1 week (scheduled by TriStar) and delivered to us 2 days later. When the delivery was ... [ More ]

    Subject:PLEASE DO NOT USE Tristar Trucking for your car move
    Review:I was cheated into believing the car could be shipped to NJ for $700. After I submitted a request the Tristar sent me an e-mail claiming due to one client backed out of the deal it can offer me a better price. After negotiation, I got an e-mail fro... [ More ]

    Subject:PLEASE DO NOT USE Tristar Trucking for your car move.
    Review:PLEASE DO NOT WORK WITH Tristar Trucking. It's nightmare to deal with them... Hi Mike, Thanks you for helping me get my car from Ohio to Texas. But for sure I did not like the price surprise. The guy who delivered the car needed me to pay $550... [ More ]
    Response:unfortunately the customer did not read the contract and did not want to pay the broker fee, even though right up at the top of transport reviews it indicates that there will be a 170.00 broker fee added to each and every order. As far as informing h... [ More ]

    Subject:Another SCAM from Harvey
    Review:Read the other reviews and you will see the same MO! Harvey outright LIES to you. Quoting you a price and then he sends over the contract. I printed it out and read over EACH line. There were 2 areas of concern and one of them was line 15 which ta... [ More ]
    Response:The customer was fully aware of the possible additional charges, they chose to neglect it in the contract until it came to delivery. The broker fee of $170.00 appears in all contracts as an extra as well as other items. Why blame us for this cust... [ More ]

    Subject:Outright Lie
    Review:I took a chance ordering a pick up of my vehicle with Tristar. I read the reviews and decided to hire them anyway because I was enticed by the $645 "total" fee. I became concerned after receiving the contract (which is only sent for review ... [ More ]
    Response:He never told us to keep the car, and in fact we could not, the trucker has the car and we have no control over him. The customer was only charged based on the contract we assume that after he thought it over the car was probably not worth the freigh... [ More ]

    Subject:Ripped off by hidden fees.
    Review:After a quote of $650.00 to move my car I was surprised to find out that I owed $725.00 upon delivery. I read the contract and questioned the added fees prior to agreeing to delivery. I was told that $475.00 would be my deliverables after paying th... [ More ]
    Response:This customer paid a fair correct and standard fee for his vehicle transport. If he took one of his many offers that he said he received, he would have lost his deposit and his car would still be sitting. We did a very good job transporting his vehic... [ More ]

    Subject:Thanks Mike Bell, Harvey and Sam
    Review:Mike Bell the logistics guy found a cancellation at a good price, Harvey (I think he is the VP) prepared the paperwork and Sam the dispatcher got my car from New York to LA at a very good price. I would recommend these guys and they seemed to work as... [ More ]

    Subject:SCAM from Tricking company (not Trucking!)
    Review:I’m just next victim of Harvey and Sam SCAM team. The same fraud: “One of our trucks had a cancelation and I can offer you a discount…” Finally they do not have any truck and ordered truck for price almost twice bigger than qu... [ More ]
    Response:How could anyone like this lie, the car was picked up within the timeframe of the service ordered standard service 10-15 day pickup, it was picked up 5 days after original requested pickup date. The additions were spelled out in the contract and the... [ More ]

    Subject:DO NOT USE! SCAMMERS!!!!!
    Review:Do not use these people. They are not honest. They gave us a quote of $460 TOTAL. They told me (repeatedly) in emails that the price WOULD NOT CHANGE. When I asked if there were any other charges that I could be charged, they said (in big, red le... [ More ]
    Response:The customer was fully aware of the contract and terms and conditions, she signed the contract and knew what she could expect. I guess that she has to complain since she agreed to the contract completely. [ view ]

    Review:I signrd a contract for delivery of my car for $1065. Without any forewarning at the final delivery the driver demanded an additional $510. I called Tri-Star and received no satisfaction. Stay away from these scammers. [ View ]
    Response:The customer was fully notified of any change on 6/15/2011, as per paragraph#15a of the contract and terms and conditions [ view ]

    Subject:Save your Time, Hassle, and Money!
    Review:It's obvious that I don't have to tell you what this review is going to say. I was also one of the ones “taken” for the scam these guys are running and was demanded over $300 more than the quoted price in the contract. Contract quote: $... [ More ]
    Response:I guess that we are not suppose to be paid, we should do it for nothing, just give the customer the name and telephone number of the trucker and then walk away. Customers like this are the scam, since they are fully aware that there will be a br... [ More ]

    Review:I settled an order for transport of my car for $750 out of which I paid 175 as deposit and remaining $575 was due at delivery. After seven days of my desired date, I called company and they told me that my car will be picked up in the next coming day... [ More ]
    Response:this customer was given a credit for the full deposit, the customer was informed that the drivers all wanted more money, he agreed that it was ok and that he would pay it, when the drivers came he refused to give the car,. [ view ]

    Review:Tristar is probably the worst company I have ever dealt with. This is a long story, but I will try to be as concise as possible. In short, I gave them a $175 deposit for nothing. After being repeatedly lied to and receiving terrible customer service,... [ More ]
    Response:the customer could have canceled and received a full refund, we did call the customer and inform them that the trucker wanted more money, and that he should make a decision or we would continue to look for another trucker at a possible lower price, h... [ More ]
