Tri-State Area Movers Reviews

Very professional, efficient, and friendly movers. Highly recommended!
- Clarkson

They were fast, efficient and did the job well, all during a tropical storm. I don't know how they managed to protect the furniture so well through a driving rain, but everything was clean and dry and in good shape. Great job!
- Carolyn Covelli

Stay Away!!! You get what you pay for. It is understandable that things happen that are out of your control, however.... Tri State does not tell you what is going on just what they think you want to hear. A pick up time is confirmed and hours later I was told they should be there within a few hours, the truck however was over 600 miles away. This happened on both legs of the trip, pickup and delivery. I do not recommend it at all.
- Joan Scholl

The movers were very courteous and quick. They took very good care of my items especially the difficult to move bulky furniture. The call center staff were very nice and courteous. They met my date and everything was punctual and seamless. It was an excellent experience during a very stressful time!
- John Amorin

Movers from the Tri-State Area handled all my possessions with great care. They made this very stressful move easy from NY to IL. I highly recommend these highly professional movers.
- Miguel Atwood

I booked Tri-State last minute and was thoroughly pleased that they showed up when I needed them, the movers were professional and the job was done at a very reasonable cost. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to friends.
- Jay Blondel

Great service, fair price! These guys are awesome!! If I ever move again from NY to NJ, I am sure I will hire this company again. Moving is always painful but Tri-State Area Movers help a lot during the process!!
- George Santana

These guys were absolutely AWESOME! They were so professional and hustled the whole time but were very careful with our furniture. I highly recommend Tri-State Area Movers for your moving needs. QUALITY CUSTOMER SERVICE, movers were professional and a fair price.
- Allen S. Borkowski

I called several moving companies and a friend of a friend who uses his truck and some friends to help move - tri-state movers' quote was less than 1/3 the price of any of the other people I spoke to. After the took a small deposit, they were incredibly flexible with scheduling and were extremely communicative. In the end, a family from PA offered to come up and help us with our move at which point tri-state refunded our deposit. Even though we didn't end up using them, I wanted to share our positive experience.
- Jenna Prada

I had a great experience with Tri-State Area Movers. The movers were QUICK, DILIGENT, didn't break or scratch things, and knew what could fit where, etc. Would recommend.
- Lewis S. Burger

From the initial phone call to the last item unloaded from the truck. This moving experience from NY to FL with Tri-State Area Movers was excellent. The guys worked faster than the initial quote. Thanks for the incredible move. We will definitely contact these movers again in the future.
- Carole A. Rodriguez

The gentlemen were timely, well skilled with tricky items & got all of my stuff moved in one piece. It was nice to have some of the moving stress relieved. The pricing compared to some competitors was great too. I would definitely recommend them.
- Betty Kane

Tri-State Area Movers recently moved our household goods from NY to IL. These guys worked really hard. We have not found anything damage. They were careful & did a great job. Would highly recommend it as we would use them again!
- Kimberly J. Deramus

They are wonderful hard working people. The leader of the group who unfortunately forgot his name is very professional and they deserve a raise!
- Edna Ko Yang

I cannot recommend Tri-State Area Movers enough. The day I moved, it rained all day. By the time they were at my new location in FL it was pouring. And yet, they finished the job in just over 3 hours, took GREAT CARE of all my items and they even were able to start early after finishing their morning job quicker than expected. They were nothing but professional and efficient. Recommended.
- James Sanchez

They were wonderful gentlemen who came on time, got our furniture out loaded and to our new place put everything where I wanted it and the move was done peacefully professionally.
- Sheryl Wasserman

These guys are efficient, RELIABLE and AFFORDABLE. My moving was very smooth and I would definitely recommend them for all your moving needs.
- Lisa A. Reyes

Best move!!! They communicated their pricing and services clearly up front. They arrived on time. They were extremely careful with our furniture and boxes during our move from NY to NJ. They were pleasant and professional. We highly recommend it.
- Sandra Smith

Wow. The most stressful thing anybody can do, is move their entire family and house contents a few states away. Tri State Area movers did an outstanding job. Elaine at the office helped set everything up quick and easy. Closing dates kept changing due to unforeseen issues, and the company adapted quickly. On moving day, we had more stuff than would fit on a truck, and again, they reacted quickly and put our fears at ease. The 2nd truck made it soon after, and BOTH trucks showed up on time the next morning in another state. Every single item of ours made it, with no damage and no issues. Furniture was re-assembled and boxes placed where we needed them. I can't say enough good things about my experience. Gotti ran the main crew, and it just went flawless. Arnold, PJ and a few others were all super professional and helpful. Thank you for making this move smooth and helping my family relocate. I absolutely recommend them. I'd give 6 Stars if I could....
- Allon Theilen

Tri-State Area Movers damaged my furniture when they did my move six months ago. The mover dropped the furniture and said they would pay for it. I’ve been calling for 6 months for them to come back and repair the damage. I made seven(7) separate appointments with them and every time - they were a no show. This company is terrible! Unfortunately I recommended them to a friend who sold their house in Nassau County. After they moved 90% of the furniture Tri- state movers billed 3x their quote. They are refusing to deliver the homeowners gym equipment and furniture unless their 3x quoted bill is paid in full. We both have to take off more days of work to take this company to court ! Avoid them at all costs.

The movers were on time, friendly and professional. The estimate and the management's answers to questions about the estimate were very misleading. Expect to pay 50% more than the estimate. I couldn't have been clearer with what I had to move. I was given an estimate of 2 hours labor and 1 hour travel which sounded right (Levittown to Kew Gardens). I was given an estimate about $500 (don't have exact figures handy - this included a few boxes). The whole move took exactly 3 hours. I was charged $768. The travel time was also counted as labor time. So I was charged 1 hour traveling and 3 hours labor all at $155/hr. There is no way the man who gave me the estimate thought it would take 30 min to pack in Levittown and 30 min to unpack in Kew Gardens. The intent was clearly to deceive. In addition they charged $75 for extra stairs. I told them I was moving from the second floor to the second floor. I was told I was charged because outside my new apt building there is a flight of stairs down to get to the entrance. Also, they charged the entire estimate 2 days before the move. The woman I spoke to claimed it was just a hold/authorization but the transaction posted the day before the move. They charged the balance to my card the second I got off the phone complaining about to bill.

Worst moving company ever! I moved in August 2020 and this scammy company totally ripped me off. They quoted me a fair price initially and then on the day of the job after it was all completed they completely changed it to a much higher and outrageous price. But obviously at that point I had no choice but to pay it. The movers didn’t even finish the whole job, after a lot of work they up and decided that they were finished and left a significant amount of stuff still at my old house that me and my wife had to move ourselves. The company also boasted about providing free moving boxes for their clients, don’t fall for this. They made it so hard for us to actually get the boxes that we ended up not even using their stuff. And the worst part of it all is that the movers BROKE our beautiful leather couch! The recliners no longer work and the whole couch sags inward. When I spoke to the owner about this he told me he would either give me $180 for the couch (even though the couch cost me well over $1,000) OR he would come and personally fix the couch himself. I chose to have him come and fix the couch and guess what, he never came. I kept making appointments with him to come and fix it and he never showed up and eventually he stopped answering my calls. At this point I have given up on him ever fixing my couch and now I just hope they don’t trick any other people into using their scammy service. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!

DO NOT TRUST THEIR QUOTES - TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE Followed the recommendations on their site and sent them pictures for my move. On 6/8/2020 received a quick call from a gentleman offering me a quote based on my pictures for $495.00. I said let's do it and scheduled my move for Monday, 6/29/2020 and gave him a $100 deposit. On 6/26/2020 called to confirm my move, and the rep I spoke with asked me how I was going to pay the balance. I asked her for the amount, and she said $395.00 but there is a chance there will be extra fees if they need to do more work. She said it would just be an authorization and not a charge until the actual move is complete. I said to use the same card. On Sunday 6/28/2020, I noticed a CHARGE for $514.80. - RED FLAG #1 I tried calling, but could not get is Sunday. On Monday 6/29/20, the movers arrived and completed the move. Even though they completed it, there were issues. They reassembled my bed incorrectly and threw out 13 out of 14 screws for my foot board and did not tell me. They attached it with 1 screw...and attached it incorrectly. Also scratches and dents on both furniture and apartment. At the end, the foreman had me sign a paper stating they arrived at 10:30 and left at 4:30 (6 hours) and asked me if I wanted to leave a gratuity. I said yes, so he called whomever but they didn't speak to me. The foreman stated they were going to call me for authorization and amount. Never happened. I went downstairs to get items from my car, while walking back up, I saw the movers leave and they said goodbye. When I went back upstairs and started looking at my items closely, there was some minor damage and the issue with the bed. That evening, Monday 6/29/2020 I noticed another charge for $556.40 I immediately reached out to them via their website, and no one got back to me. Today, 7/1/2020, I reached out to them and spoke to the first rep, who was very polite and who agreed with me that I was over charged but stated a portion of it is that they worked an additional 1.75 hours at $140 per hour. I agreed that they did. But based on my calculations that was an additional $235 on top of what I was quoted, which was $495.00. He stated he was going to have someone call me within the hour to discuss it because he wasn't sure. I called within the hour again, and spoke with Linda who started out professional, but quickly became combative and rude. She accused me of not being able to read their quote and that they also charged me for some truck fee and $150 tip to the drivers. I explained that the original quote was $495 and I paid my deposit and should have been charged an additional $395 plus the extra 1.75 hours of labor, but I told her no one explained that they were charging some sort of truck charge as well as I did not authorize a $150 tip, especially since they broke my bed. The conversation escalated to the point where I did not want to continue it. I explained to her that if they do not fix the issue, I will be forced to contact my credit card company and file a dispute, she told me to go right ahead and that they will tell my credit card company that I am committing fraud. I hung up and called my CC company and will deal directly with them. BE AWARE - THESE PEOPLE ARE DISHONEST CROOKS WHO WILL LIE AND OVER CHARGE YOU. Obviously I will never use them again and will do everything in my power to make everyone aware of their terrible business practices.

BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE! This company is a SCAM!!! The online reviews are FAKE!! We got a quote from them of $500 for 3 hours after giving full information about the number and size of furniture, but they ended up taking 6 hours and breaking a piece of furniture that they never refunded (now they stop receiving my call) and leaving multiple scratches on the floor. Here's the breakdown of what happened .. The guys came at 1:14 (which was within their window of 1:30), looked at the furniture, and took my signature. 20-25 minutes later they showed up with the blankets and other accessories. They were extremely extremely slow from the beginning. But after 2.5 hours when I realized that there's no way they can finish on time, I asked them what's the plan!! At that point they told me that they were told that it was a pickup only job which is incorrect and started arguing with me. I called the office and tried to find out what happened, but now they started blaming the elevator and parking and whatever. Note: they brought in 3 people 1 of which is new and absolutely useless and was on his phone for the most part. He at least had 5-10 phone calls that he received. In the process, they totally disregarded some of the instructions which would have helped them to pack faster, and ended up breaking one of the furniture. After more than 3 hours they finally started towards the destination. Meanwhile we called the office and tried to figure out what went wrong, the manager started yelling at us and telling us that these are highly professional people (who doesn't even know how to put a sofa in an elevator) and I didn't mentioned that it was 7 flight, we didn't have dedicated elevator this and that and hung up on us! Then they arrived after 45 minutes (which is a 20 minute distance at most) And asked for the money. If we don't pay, they are not going to bring down any of the furniture!!!! We paid them and they started bringing stuff in. We told them not to set up some of the furniture by seeing their incapability and knowing that it will cost us more if they set up everything they only put together 2 beds one of which was left dangerously loose. The office said they will reimburse us for the broken furniture. It's been 3 months, I tried multiple times to get the money back. Now they stopped picking up my phone call altogether. I picked them by reading the reviews online. Please know that the reviews are fake and paid. They are scam artists. be very very careful of them.
- Mahmud Islam

Bottom line is that they damaged nearly everything that they moved. Scratches and deep cuts to beds, dressers and broke my refrigerator. Two of my items are actually missing! Just never arrived. But the worst part is that despite their assurances they have refused to get back to me about the damages. I showed the movers the damages the day of, he took pictures (as did I) and said they would call and get an estimate on costs. Never happened. I called multiple times, emailed pictures, etc and was told they would get back to me. Never happened. Now they have gone completely silent. I would think long and hard about dealing with this company - there has to be a better option out there.
- Leigh Gross

If you're looking for a good quality/honest moving company look elsewhere! First review I’m writing in my 31 years of life. I feel obligated to warn future potential customers about this fraud of a company. Quoted $650 for a one bedroom move out of a storage unit to 10 minutes down the road into a house. It all came out to $1,400.00 after they were finished nickel and diming. Linda assured me she would credit us some of the difference, but instead developed a sudden case of amnesia and added to the price after the fact. Checked with the BBB and they have over a dozen complaints. Do yourself a favor and call a real company or do it yourself. You will thank me later.
