They will outsource your move to an ...

The crew arrived 2.5 hours late in July 2020. We were told the crew would wear masks and practice social distancing. They didn't. Masks stayed down around necks and later disappeared entirely. We signed our contract on the day of the move and were not provided a copy. The name of the company on the contract, the name online and the name we ultimately Zelle'ed our final payment to were all different. Our emails came from madisone.tristatevanlines@gmail.com and Tri State Van Lines appeared on our quote. The name on the contract was Mirit - Great American. We sent our final payment to Mega Moving Inc. The crew was not in uniform or anything that might ID them and the truck was a generic Penske. In hindsight that should have been a red flag. The movers explained glass items were not covered for damage if they were not properly wrapped and we could opt to have them wrap items for an extra cost. We paid $75 to have our 40 gal fish tank wrapped. It was a waste of money. The tank came off the truck in pieces. Our $75 was not returned and the insurance included in our contract offered us just $24 as reimbursement. This wasn't the only damage. Nearly everything we own was roughly handled and we saw it happen. We watched one mover push a bookcase, top down across a concrete floor. We watched others stack boxes marked fragile under boxes marked heavy. Boxes and furniture were stacked precariously so that our stuff hit the ground multiple times during the day. At one point, a guy tried to carry a floor lamp with a glass shade dangling by the lamp cord up four flights of stairs. When it was time to settle up, the leader tried to charge us $150 for "stairs and long carry" even though the contract and our quote clearly says there is no extra charge for either. He told us we should pay that money directly to him since "his crew were the ones doing the work." We knew it was a scam but we had planned to tip the men anyway so we paid. Not long after, my husband found him smoking weed behind the truck. At this point, any confidence we had left evaporated. It gets worse. The only elevator broke down with a chest of drawers and 30+ boxes on the ground floor. Our unit was on the fourth floor. It was late and still over 90 degrees outside. We were legitimately afraid this careless, unprofessional crew would drive off and leave us so we paid them an extra $200 cash to carry the last items up four flights of stairs. 3 days after our move, our landlord called to tell us we would have to repair the flooring or lose our security deposit. The movers had gouged several deep gashes in the hardwood. This was a nightmare experience. The crew was careless, dishonest and unprofessional. In the end, we helped carry dozens of boxes up 4 flights of stairs which defeated the purpose of hiring movers. We handed over $400 in cash on top of what we paid the moving company directly. When we asked for a partial refund for our troubles, we were ignored.

Careful and efficient

The best moving experience we had with Tri-State Van Lines. The moving team was extremely efficient, careful and organized. No extra or hidden charges, everything was fair and simple. We had more boxes than originally quoted for but they were nice to help out with those and even additional small items we didn't pack without any issues. Great work all around and definitely a recommendable moving company for an easy and stress-free move.

Quality in every aspect

These movers are awesome. I was amazed at the level of professionalism, courtesy, and attentiveness to care. So much so, I called them back in a week for another phase of my move. I will continue to refer Tri-State Van Lines. It’s so nice to know there is this kind of help available to those of us who can no longer pick up-and-move like we used to. My only regret is that I didn't find them sooner. Quite satisfied with the amazing service provided by this moving company.

Best price and service

Moving is a difficult thing to do I always believed but Safeway moving recently proved me wrong and I would encourage others to look at their offers. I had to move NJ to PA. So, I was kind of thinking that it might be very costly. But their sales person offered me a brilliant offer at a very reasonable rate which I just had to take. I was particularly impressed with their capability of handling fragile items. Now I can live happily in my new sweet home. Thanks Tri-State Van Lines for your service.

No worries with this mover

When I called Tri-State Van Lines for a price quote, they came to our place within the hour to give us a price. Team arrived on time on moving day and had the trucks packed in record time. They unloaded our 20+ boxes and several rooms of furniture in a quick, professional manner. This was my fastest move ever. The moving team was great to work with. I will definitely use this great moving service for my next relocation.

Pleasure to work with them

The sales rep from was very knowledgeable and easy to work with from the very beginning. The movers arrived in time to provide a price quote for the move and had a great personality. On the day of the move they showed up on-time and did a great job at packing up the apartment and communicating with us during the pack. On the day after packing they drove early in the morning and allowed us to tell them where everything was to be placed in the new house and didn't complain about having to take all the furniture up stairs. Overall a great group to work with and have great personalities as well. I will definitely recommend Tri-State Van Lines for any moving needs.

Very good and helpful moving company

We moved with Tri-State Van Lines and the move went right on schedule, it was perfect. The items that we had relocated were pretty fragile and I was pretty sure that there will be some errors. That wasn’t the case in any way, it was just so pleasant. I received all my items intact and without a scratch. Thank you to the guys at this company for giving us a great move, Thank you

A right company for moving

The movers from Tri-State Van Lines were terrific. They packed most of our stuff and all of the valuables and delicate things. We did not have one nick or chip out of anything including glass sculptures and designer side tables. The moving team showed up on time on the moving day and were very efficient in getting everything boxed up and loaded on their truck. They arrived later in the day and were as efficient unloading as they had been at the originating location. I was totally impressed with their attention to detail. They made the moving part go smoothly-great job.

Excellent from Start to Finish

The complete process was great with Tri-State Van Lines – from start to finish and all people involved. Between the original assessment, the follow-up calls, and the final move were all beyond my expectations. They gave us a timeline and worked within it. The movers were careful and did not damage a single piece of furniture. They asked where I wanted furniture placed in the new house and reassembled all items. They were very friendly. I think this company will go very far in this industry and I wish them all the best.

Thanks for the great service

We decided to hire Tri-State Van Lines based on recommendations. I have friends who relocated with them before and they always told me how good this company is. I certainly got a taste of it this time. The movers, who maintained their timings, were just so efficient. Their speed really ensured my bill to stay low. All our belongings were carefully packed, loaded and delivered without any issues. I am just so grateful to this moving company and will recommend them to everyone for sure.

Total satisfaction

I have worked with numerous moving companies in the past. But none of them measured up to the standards of Tri-State Van Lines. This company just blew my mind with their helpful customer service, experienced crew and reasonable prices. It’s a combination that is so rare in the moving business. But somehow this company managed to provide amazing services at such low costs even in this economy. To add to their amazing list of achievements, none of my valuables suffered any damage while they helped me move. I take my hats off to these guys.

Such An Amazing Crew

My fiance and I moved in together in our new place in California stress free thanks to tri state van lines! We had a 2 bedroom apartment with a decent amount of boxes so I was anticipating a larger cost but was pleasantly surprised. Everything was moved comfortably and in a timely manner too, I have a busy schedule being a manager in a cosmetics facility yet they were able to work around that. I will definitely use you guys again!!!

Long Move Done With Expertise

Recently my spouse and I relocated to Salt Lake City from Delaware. Tri State Van Lines helped us and so I wish to write in two words how pleased we are. At my friend's suggestion they said for moving so far it's best to buy all new there and sell everything here. Since my spouse was against selling our household furniture and stuff we had to hire movers. Tri State Van Lines were amazing and very helpful. The move itself was difficult and long due to the distance, but they managed to load the stuff during one day. After 14 days we got all the stuff in Utah and they unloaded it, arranged the furniture in our new property and put each box exactly where I asked.. I can't imagine more successful result for a long distance move. Great service. Thank you so very much.

Smooth and stress free

With my past moves I learned what not to do. A lot of things can get ruined and go wrong in a move. However, it was all different in my last move with Tri State Van Lines. These movers are really experts in what they do. They made sure that nothing was damaged or ruined during the move. It was all perfect, stress free and seamless. I really recommend them to anyone looking for good movers to make a move. We had lived in our old house a long time and hence it was really difficult making the decision to leave but it was difficult circumstances that we had to move. The movers were everything we needed to make the transition more comfortable. They were there by our side ensuring that nothing goes wrong and packed, moved and were very clean in the process.

Reliable and careful movers

I have moved several times over last few years. So I have both good and bad experiences. When I see several complaints against a mover then I investigate and find out best one for my instant moving. After using Tri-state Van Lines, I don’t feel any necessary to search for other movers. I had great experience with them when they moved my house hold first time in 2015. This is 2nd time I used them for my shifting from New York to South Carolina. They were careful with all of my belongings as they were in 1st moving. They delivered on time and my things always arrived without a scratch. I have recommended them to all of my friends and colleagues.

Great price and even better service

The movers from Tri-State Val Lines simply didn’t give me a chance to worry about a single thing. They were great at every aspect. From their low quote to the movers unpacking everything- it was just effortless. They stuck to the quote at the end which is quite rare for moving companies. The movers were all very strong men who displayed amazing skills and strength. I’m not the most easily impressed kind of person. But these guys pleased me beyond any imaginations.

Smooth moving from start to finish

I would unquestionably suggest people to use Tri-State Van Lines. From initial conversation to ending the job, the communication and overall standard of Tri-State Van Lines was outstanding. They offered very reasonable rate in comparison with their rival movers. The foreman arrived on time at moving day and stayed in contact throughout the move. His brilliant direction towards his skilled workers made the whole move less stressful. They loaded all items on the truck, and unloaded again with deep concentration. I am the kind of character, who would detect any small mark on my furniture, all performance was simply flawless. My all items were handed over on spotless condition. Keep it up guys!
