They did a good job. I would probably have given them a 5 star rating but they were over an hour and a half late. But it was a really rainy day here in So.

the were on time, very professional. the were able to pack up everything I needed in the time I asked for. the took care of all my furniture and they understood the rush I was in to get things packed. i would totally recommend them for your next move.
Moving day went super well thanks to the Steve and his helper! They arrived on time and went above and beyond what I expected from movers. They put my bed frame together better than it has ever been! I appreciate their help and eye for safety of my furniture. Highly recommend!!
My arrival time for the movers was between 8am and 9am.by 9:05am I was already getting stressed out that this was a no show. I called Pack Rat and they got in touch with Stephen. He called me to let me know they were on their way - just running late. Also, one of the movers called me to let me know they were coming. BIG Relief!!…Read More Always hear those horror stories of no show movers. Ryan and Ray showed up at 10:00am, they went right to work. Packed my whole storage pod including the light stuff. What a nice job. They were so nice and careful with our stuff. Took extra measures to make sure everything was secure in the pod. Really nice guys! Thank you Tri County Movers! I will recommend you. In fact, I already have!
Due to the typical traffic issues, they arrived a bit later then scheduled. However, Steve and Ray got right to work and finished the job excellently. I am very happy with their effort and expertise. They performed beyond my expectations. I would absolutely hire them again.
After leaving two messages I had to hire someone else when they didn’t show.

Cheryl I am truly sorry. I had two jobs that day and they were only 6 miles apart. The guys were finished with first job and had plenty of time to get to your place.

They were professional and handled all our furniture and piano with care. They worked diligently, swiftly and at the end of it all saved our family money.

They worked hard and we're able to complete a large amount of what I needed to get done in the small amount of time I had.

Very unprofessional. Very unorganized. They were suppose to pack up and load into pods. We cancelled them to unload a month later when our pods were delivered. Did not use them for our offloading. Won't use them again.Show Response
Very unprofessional and unorganized?? Which part of the four times you had us come out was the unprofessional or unorganized part. Was it the fact that I did not charge you for the overages on the second POD when we worked late into the night? Perhaps it was the offer to unload the two PODS for FREE when you talked about the money issue with me. I can't help but think this was a way to get out of paying the late cancellation fee (which I would not have charged you anyway). To give a one sta

The workers did a good job the company did not supply them with the tools they needed to do the job I had to supply the tools the company is not a good service or a good company and workers were late by about three hoursShow Response
Your factually correct and I apologize for the issues on this job. I think you forgot about the five guys I had on the two man job that was not charged to you or that I sent a man (not on the clock) to pick up the missing shrink wrap. But, again, I apologize for the uncontrollable issues that day that made us late but I did keep you in the loop. Hope you and your wife enjoy your new home.

Jake and his Colleague were on time, respectful, courteous and they knew their job! They required minimal supervision due to their experience and wrapped and covered everything carefully. Would definitely recommend them and use them again, if needed!
5***, but I'd give them 10***. Have already recommended Tri-City Movers to my real estate agent and to my friends on Facebook. The movers were not on time, but called me to communicate their minor delayed time, and asked if that was going to be OK. Southern California has undependable traffic conditions, and we had fires in t…Read Morehe area tying up the freeways, so this communication was appreciated. Wow, this crew hustled and worked hard. They were extremely careful walking up and down my sunken living room, careful not to nick walls or the front door. They did an extremely thorough initial walk through to see what we were packing, since some of my furniture/items my kids were taking to their apartments. We had a couple small additional items to handle, so they kept out a mattress and recommended we pack that last to secure the load. They tackled my packed house and garage with excellence. I would use Tri-City Movers again...DEFINITELY!Show Response
Thank you for the kind words Debra. Just for the record though we are Tri-County Movers not Tri- City Movers although they too are a professional group of movers in their own right.
~ Tri-County Movers
I was very pleased with the outcome from having selected Tri-County. Got confirmation plus re-confirmation one day prior. Guys texted an ETA update while at their prior job so I knew when they would show up. Everything moved in with great care - no breakages whasoever. Very fair pricing and guys kept up a strong pace.
Steve and his crew worked very hard, were extremely accommodating and helpful as we ran into some space challenges with the Container we rented. They went above and beyond to make it all work out and helped to minimize the stress of the move. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat!
The guys from Tri Country were great. They were each very pleasant to deal with and hard working. The four stars is due to the fact that one of the workers started to feel ill about half way through the job and then couldn't work any more for the rest of the time booked, which is understandable. However, we were never offered a …Read Morerebate based on the fact that we only had two people working the job instead of three.

Hi Adam your move fell within the minimum of time for your move. I should have explained that issue with you more thoroughly when we did the paperwork. It was so hot that day all I could think of was cooling off somewhere. But because of that and you guys were very pleasant to work with I'm sending a refund anyway to you for the unused time regardless of the minum and wish you luck with your new projects.

This is the second time in three years we have hired Tri County. They arrived on time, they had two hand trucks, one four wheeled dolly, plastic wrap, a few moving blankets/pads ( I had rented six dozen) and some basic tools for dismantling furniture. I recommend taking apart your own furniture prior to their arrival as it he…Read Morelps with the overall efficiency. Their work ethic was top notch and they never slowed except for an occasional water break, which was very necessary with temps in the 90's. They maintained a very positive attitude about everything and their pace never slowed. They were more respectful about my property than I am! Of course I would hire them again. Steve, Randy, Mike and Jason were an absolutely awesome "helpers" to my family. They stuffed the 26' Uhaul perfectly to its gills! I have to say their work ethic remained consistent even when they unloaded the truck at our new place. Remember folks the more moving blankets you have the better especially when it comes to protecting your furniture and place from damage. I would also recommend you purchase moving plastic shrink wrap to help with your move. Thanks again boys!
Steve and his staff arrived on time and worked very hard to complete the job of moving our items into the 16' Pod. Also their ability to organize the boxes and furniture to maximize space was noteworthy. My only concern was the lack of equipment to move very heavy items, i.e., with larger dollies, lift equipment. Could have save…Read Mored some time and backache !
Tri-County Movers did a really awesome job. It was an extremely hot day at >90 degrees and there was a lot of heavy lifting and difficult stairs to navigate. Not one single complaint or gripe/groan. Steve, Randy, and Ryan could not have been more helpful and accommodating and they worked their tails off. Not one piece of furnitu…Read Morere damaged, not one wall or floor damaged. We have moved a lot and that is a real rarity. Would use them again in a heartbeat.
Just as when loading my goods into the POD, the team was equally careful at unloading them back into the house. They worked tirelessly and followed my instructions cheerfully and efficiently. I would definitely recommend them to others.
Had a little problem with start time but that was resolved. They did an excellent job filling the pod and making sure my belongings wouldn't get damaged. Also did some extra tasks which helped me very much. I appreciated the questions they asked which caused me to rethink how I was handling things.
They arrived on time. They were very professional, competent and friendly. They provided everything we needed, including their expertise. They worked extremely hard and got the entire job done in a timely way. I would use them again and recommend them with out reservation.
Steve & his team worked very hard to get our move completed quickly. We had more boxes than we anticipated (surprise!) and they still accomplished the job in less time than we had scheduled. He called when we booked the job to confirm and the day ahead to be sure we were still on schedule.
I have relocated 4times in the last 2 yrs due to family health care needs.and relocated my Fathers and his personal i teams to healthcare fasility , and stored his remaining things.

The workers very respectful , perfitional,hard working people. What 2 people moved in 4 hrs took other the other movers w/3 people 10 hrs. If tri county movers saw some damaged before they wrap and or packaged they would point out the damage. So no mix up.and one of tri county movers was a women. The only braces they took was for water or bathroom.....I can't say enough good things about them. I would use them every time I have to move or store something. And besides doing a better job the cost was so much cheaper then big name company's save over $2000.... it's a no brained . Thank you guys . See u soon Kathy
Our movers were terrific. Very thoughtful and professional. They moved very rapidly, but were scrupulous in making sure that every item was appropriately packed and secured. If I ever need moving labor help again, I will definitely call Tri-County Movers.
They were almost 3 hrs late. I believe they were inexperienced .A lot of my furniture was scratched and broken. Didn't take good care even though I supplied moving blankets. most of them wound up on the floor of the pod instead of padding my furniture . I definitely would not recommend .
3.5 hours late. We hired 4 people for 4 hours. Someone called in sick so they brought someone's girlfriend to fill in. She had flats on which was unsafe and she couldn't help with much and spent the last 30-40 mins of the two hour job smoking in her car.

I used them to unload when we first moved to Tustin. Their service was great....so we called them for this current move. I don't know how their service could go down so quickly. We had to load a pod. They were almost an hour late. I kept asking them to be sure to put all furniture in it because we could tell the pod wasn't l…Read Morearge enough. I had to push them. When we moved in they lifted our frig over counter (over and above thus why we contracted them a second time) I ask them to do the same again. The owner said he would be there to help them. He came at the end of the move and we were charged almost an hour for them to take frig apart. We had them come to load a budget truck to get the rest of the things. We were giving them benefit of doubt. The owner said he would give a discount. Well he showed up over an hour late. They were told there were two heavy pieces to be loaded. We got a man and a lady for the second part. We had the truck half loaded by the time they got there. Even with the discount we were very disappointed. They were scheduled for the final unload of the pod but I am seeking another company. I hope they are able to correct these issues so they can get higher ratings.
I used Tri-County Movers twice. Once to pack my POD and the second time to unpack my POD 11 days later. The problems I had with their service, they were 2 hours late both times. However, once they arrived, they were prepared for the job, they worked hard, and not only respectful with our property and goods but also respectful…Read More to us. Since they were late once, why, you may ask, did I use them a second time? They were very apologetic for being late saying their first job ran long and everything I said once they arrived made me want to give them a second chance. Would I use them again? No. Nice guys, hard workers but not considerate of our time or our time schedule.
I was so impressed with the services of Tri-County Movers! I especially enjoyed the care and consideration they gave to my furnishings as they unloaded my POD & installed each piece into my new spaces. Steve and Mark were very careful with my freshly painted walls, placing boxes exactly where I asked and meticulous with my uph…Read Moreolstered furniture, placing it out of the sun as they needed to bring in other pieces first. I felt that their pricing was very reasonable and the communication of plans and arrival times was very reassuring. They were completely prepared with a hand truck, pads & great technique! Thank you so much for making a potentially stressful event one of ease and confidence for me.
These guys were the best! I couldn't have asked for a better pair of guys to help me. They were careful with my things above all. They treated my things as of they belonged to them. They worked efficiently and at a good pace. I'd call them again in a heartbeat!
These guys are awesome! They unloaded a 26' truck filled with furniture and boxes in no time. They were also very pleasant and has a great customer centric attitude. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to my friends.
I hired Tri county movers to move out my 2 bedroom apt to a pod. They packed that thing perfectly and fit in all my items (which were a lot) They also were very handy and were able to take apart all my tables, beds etc so that it would all fit. They were nice and friendly as well!
I felt uneasy about their service from the beginning due to the fact that I had to call them several times up until the day before my scheduled move date to get an idea as to what time the movers would arrive. Approx. 2 hours after they were scheduled to arrive I called the owner and first of all he states that he was going to …Read Moregive me a call. He stated that his drivers were running late and he would contact them and let me know an ETA. Well..after about 30 minutes with no return call I called him back. 30 minutes after that the driver called and stated that they were about an hour away but they were going to stop for lunch and would be at my home sometime thereafter. Bottom line is that they were 4 hours and 45 min late. someone from their company called me later on that night and said the owner (Steve) was going to give me a call within 20 minutes and I did not hear from him until approximately a week later. He left a message and stated that he wanted to dispute my bill!!!
When the workers were there, they were excellent and very active. But they arrived two hours after their estimated start time. Their home office is much too far away to service Ventura.

I didn't authorize this payment to be paid. I still have not heard from Steve the owner of the moving company. I am very unhappy about what happened this time with my move. It should have been simple. Everything was already packed in a storage unit, I provided the truck and all they needed to do was put the items into the truck …Read Moreand unpack them at my place of residence. They did not arrive until 12:30pm, so my X-husband and I already had most of the units boxes loaded onto the truck. For some reason one of the movers decides that he will unpack some of my already packed items and shrink wrap it. I did not request anything to be shrink wrapped, I had plenty of blankets and it was already packed in the truck. The whole remainder of the afternoon seem to go in slow motion. We finally finished with the unit and were well over the time frame that I budgeted and planned for. We leave to come to the house and I receive a call from one of the movers that they are broken down on the freeway and want me to come and get them. That was when I phoned Steve the owner of the company and informed him of the days events. He informed me that he would call his movers and get them set up with a Uber car and get them to my house to off load the truck and make things right for me one this move. I personally requested Steve because he had moved me in 2013 and did a wonderful job, treated my antiques with respect. This time was not the case. I have broken items that were not informed to me but the pieces placed on the items themselves. Priceless family pieces that I am 3rd and 4th generation to have them and now are broken. Off loading then truck stacking boxes and tubs clearly marked FRAGILE placed on the bottoms of 4 to 5 more heavy boxes. I am just shaking my head. I feel like I am in a dream or should say a nightmare. I was going to lose my storage unit to auction because I have been unemployed and had to borrow this money to move these things to my families home and I still feel like I have been taken advantage of. I am very disappointed in how this move went and very sad for my loss. Tracy Grant
Ray and Burt were scheduled to arrive between 1-2pm but did not arrive until 5pm. However, Ray communicated with me periodically to let me know he was stuck on the 91 & 71 freeways. When they finally arrived they were apologetic and were raring to get to work. They were both respectful and worked hard. They were able to load two…Read More pods and were very mindful of our belongings. The only negative thing I can say is because of the late start they completed the job at 12:15am. I would use Ray and Burt again when the pods need to be unloaded in December.
The four movers I had from Tri-County movers were excellent.

I have already recommended Tri-County Movers to a friend of mine who is moving soon.
Overall I wish I could give them a higher score. However they have some serious communication issues. Just as another review I had issues with my tri-county mover manager. Although he was supposed to contact us within 48 hours of the order being processed I did not hear from him at all. I ended up leaving a few voicemail's t…Read Morehat he did not respond to. After contacting hire a helper after 2 weeks of no response from Tri County I finally received a call from "Steve". It sounded as though he was in the middle of helping someone move and he didn't have his paperwork so he was going to call me back. After another week and playing voicemail tag he called me back. I informed him we had some special circumstances that required a packing expert for a container as well as carts or some type of transportation to get our belongings to the pod. It sounded as though he had written everything down but clearly he had not. After calling him every week prior to our move to ensure that they knew of our special situation I thought we were in the clear. When the 2 guys showed up on moving day they were surprised to find out that our container was up a hill over 600 feet away. Which I had told Steve about numerous times at this point. So they called someone with a van to come and assist. Our understanding was that they were just bringing a van and leaving it with the 2 helpers that we had hired. However the van showed up and there were 2 people in it. At the end of the move they wanted to charge us for the additional people that I had not authorized to come. Overall the movers themselves worked very hard. Barely taking any breaks and sweating hard. We offered them water and anything else they needed. The guy that was packing the pack rat did an excellent job and was careful to make sure heavy boxes were on the bottom and fragile boxes were placed properly. They were flexible on the arrival time since the pack rat arrived an hour and a half late!!! Also they stayed until the job was done. Like I stated previously the workers were great but there was definitely some communication problems.
They were 3 hours late and forgot some of the moving equipment I asked them to bring. They did work hard and were very nice but there was a strange incident after they left, about 10 minutes later one of the men all of a sudden appeared from one of the bedrooms and scared the crap out of me. He said he just wanted a signature bu…Read Moret the piece of paper was blank so it didn't make sense, and he didn't come through the front door. Later that night the house was broken into and items taken and trash left in the house, including cigarettes. It was a very unsettling experience and would NOT recommend. Very unprofessional.
Even though they arrived one hour late, I like the team a lot. They work so efficiently and well experienced. They take the glass table top and other fragile items very carefully. And they work so hard like non-stop, we actually saved one hour and half from my order :) I would love to use them again for sure.
All of the movers were friendly and cooperative, and I was impressed with how quickly and efficiently they got the job done, with spending less time and using few workers then we had anticipated.

Great job! Not only were they on time, they were actually there a little before they said they would be there. They brought everything they needed to make the move as painless as possible.

They were on time, adequately prepared for the task at hand and they didn't stop until everything was done.

The moving labor help I needed was last minute and Hire a Helper worked very hard to help me find a great company.

Everything went very smoothly with the timing and the move itself. …Read More Both men from Tri- County were friendly courteous and more than helpful. They were very contentious of my property and belongings. They unloaded everything from the moving containers in under the minimum time, so they helped me assemble a bed, and move some things around to make my life easier.

Pros: The two movers that showed up did an awesome job! Customer service at Hire-A-Helper was awesome! Cons: The contact person at TriCity Movers was a total flake (let's call him "Steve"). Horrible at returning phone calls/text messages. I'm talking really, really bad. I was told by Hire-A-Helper to contact Steve right…Read More away after scheduling the move. Called 3-4 times over 3 days -- no reply. Had to call Hire-A-Helper to get Steve to respond. Steve called back told me he would email me stuff to do to prepare, never did. Called him back 2-3 times again over the next 3-4 days, he never called back, emailed me or texted me the info. Was about to cancel and find someone else when he finally called. Were they on time? They arrived about an hour late. Were they prepared for the job? Mostly. They forgot to bring Allen wrenches (despite being told by flakey TriCity Movers contact person) but otherwise did great. Did they work hard? Yes -- very hard. Were they respectful of my property and goods? Yes. Would you use them again? Sadly no. Because I can't be worrying whether they are going to show up or not because they don't call or text me back. BUT I would use Hire-A-Helper -- they RULE; I'd just pick a different mover off of their list which is SAD because the movers they sent did a great job.
Luis and Manny did a fantastic job for us! They arrived on time and had tools for furniture assembly, as we requested. They unloaded (6) small pods in our driveway. We had close to (40) boxes. Although we didn't have a massive amount of furniture; there was a lot of miscellaneous pieces. The guys were upbeat, fast and per…Read Moresonable. Both were respectful of us, our home and our stuff. They moved our new refrigerator from a lower patio and up (1) flight of stairs. This was very difficult; the doors had to come off the frig, go thru a narrow door and up a 40" wide staircase. Luis took the time to be a great problem solver. This unloading was done on a really hot and humid day, pretty unpleasant. No whining; just smiles and hard work. You get the most for your hourly rate with this great team of helpers! I would hire Luis and Manny again, in a heartbeat.
I had trouble reaching them at first. I ended up calling HireAHelper and then finally got a call back the day before the job to make sure they were actually coming and at what time. I had to take some time off my new job to meet them at 10 AM, which would've been fine... except they didn't show at 10. I called at 10:30 and wa…Read Mores told they were having trouble with the dispatcher and were picking up equipment in 20 minutes. All right, stuff happens, maybe they'd show up around 11:15-11:30. 11:30 comes around. I call again. Twice. No answer. I get a text saying that they're picking up equipment and apologize for the delay. A little before 1 PM two guys show up saying that some other guys didn't show, and they seemed as uninformed as I was on the situation. My wife and I had moved a bunch of little stuff on our own at this point, and she oversaw the bigger stuff while I went back to work because it had already been nearly 3 hours past when I expected them. Some stuff got misplaced around the house, but overall the guys that ended up showing up were good people and we got everything done that we were hoping to. I got 20% off for the delay, which I certainly appreciate, but between the extremely poor and scattered communication and the enormous delay in what was a tight schedule for me, I don't think I'll be using them again after the stress-fest that day turned out to be. To be fair, I'm 90% sure this is the exception given the other glowing reviews, so if you're considering them don't let this deter you too much.
I would definitely use Tri-County Movers again. They were professional and totally respected of all my furnishings. They made this part of my move extremely pleasant and not stressful at all. They definitely did it in a timely manner and I just let them do their job. Perfectly. Thank you.....Sallie
Hired 4 movers...2 were several hours late due to car trouble. When the unloaded 2 leather couches, they were damaged because when the originally loaded them they put leather on leather...dye came off in several places and leather pealed.
It was a hectic day with lots of communication necessary to get everything set up. However, once the team arrived they made short work of emptying my PODS container. They took time to make sure not to damage walls or doors. Did have one issue, but that wasn't their fault. They were friendly and worked hard. Would recommend a…Read Morend I am already hiring them for my next PODS unload.
They were VERY nice and polite. But they were a couple hours late, did not have the proper supplies, and were not exactly respectful of my property.

Our movers were two hours late, and didn't provide notice until an hour in.

Stephen from Tri-County Movers came with one helper. This guy suddenly quit on him without any incident or reason.

Steve is the hardest working man I have ever met. Can't say enough good things about him. An honest, sincere guy that wants to help you get your move done as quick as possible and packs things to save the most space. Will absolutely hire again!
The team from Tri-County Movers did a great job for us.

Using HireAHelper was extremely useful in arranging our move; they recommended a list but the highest ratings went to The Tri-County Movers, so we chose them. They are awesome! The only flaw was that they were late but they stayed until the job is done. You wouldn't even know we had a massive move were it not for the huge PACK-R…Read MoreAT container that was sitting in our driveway this morning, which was just picked-up and is on its way from CA to VA. Everyone who came to the house from Tri-County Movers were not only professional in packing boxes for us and carefully, methodically placing everything into the container for shipping, but they spotlessly cleaned up the area before they left. One other thing that cannot be overlooked. Moving is stressful but by the time we were done, Steve, Daniel and the rest of the crew had been so helpful, with smiles and lightheartedness throughout the day that it was as if they were all family and the day flew by...we were actually sad to say goodbye as they drove away. Anyone who lives in the L.A. / Orange County areas, I highly recommend hiring Tri-County Movers. You will not be disappointed.

I have used hire a helper twice. Both times the movers showed up hours after their scheduled arrival time. The service is overcharged and movers inexperienced In both occasions. I will never your services again or would recommend them to anyone.
Steve and Brad were incredible! They were hard working and very efficient. They packed up every square inch of the pod and handled out furniture with care. I would highly recommend Tri-County Movers without reservation and would use them again in the future!
Great guys and hard workers, they knew what they were doing and did a great job. I scheduled for 8am they arrived at 10 after 10. I did receive a call they would be later.

We hired Tri-County Movers to load our 2 large PODs and we had packed up all of our boxes prior to their arrival.

They showed up on time and were prepared for the job. They worked very hard doing many things I had not even thought of. Thanks again for recommending them.
Bill & Brian arrived late but we expect that due to traffic in LA. Once they arrived, they went to work immediately and they both worked very, very hard.

These guys are my new best friends, and only friends. Called at the last minute on a Sunday afternoon to help get a refrigerator ups a flight of stairs. Friendly, fast, courteous, respectful. They will be my go to guys for all my needs, small and large.
Bill and Brian were FANTASTIC!!! Could not have moved without them. No one thought that my house would fit in the POD but somehow they were able to get it all in. Otherwise I would have been in big trouble. They were a God send. Would highly recommend them!!
Movers arrived about 2 hours later than what had been represented. Some calls were not returned and there was not much advance feedback/confirmation of work to be done. Communication was not so good. However, once they arrived, the movers were well prepared, did a good job of packing the containers, and worked hard. They we…Read Morere willing to stay until the work was done (later than anticipated). They wrapped the more fragile and scratchable items with shrink wrap and blankets. I thought I got my money's worth and would definitely use them again.
I booked the movers late the day before my move. Even though I provided a cell number the rep contacted me through email which delayed getting the scheduling worked out. The guys were late getting to my place but got things done in 2 hours.
The folks from Tri-County arrived early and worked very hard until the work to unload was done. Ryan and Ron were friendly, great communicators, and went above and beyond to do a good job. They were careful with my belongings, andI thought the did a great job. I would use Tri-County again if the need ever arises.
I was extremely impressed with my two movers - Marty and Brian. They worked hard, were pleasant, tried to meet all of my needs, and filled the POD to capacity. Excellent.

The team that the owner of Tri-County Movers, Stephen Russell, put together for this move was amazing. Each person was positive, respectful and hard working. This was a very big move that took a lot of time and the attitude of this team remained positive and up beat till the end. So very impressive!
Marty and Oliver were professional, on time, and took great care to ensure that all of our belongings were handled with care.

Tri-County Movers were fantastic. We got our PackRack a good deal earlier than expected and learned as it was being set in place in front of our house that our HOA does not allow containers.

When his first crew of movers didn't show up Steve from Tri-County movers still came through! He found another crew and arrived later that same day to move everything in. Would highly recommend using this moving company as they were very professional and took good care of all the items they moved.
Bad management, Owners word was no good, made promises,that weren't kept, scheduled arrival times that were never met with no explanation.

I would definitely recommend Tri-County Movers. They were quick, efficient and prepared for packing my items on the truck.

Tri- County movers are very friendly and make you feel like your going with the right company. On moving day though Steve the head of the movers was extremely unorganized and did not come through on assisting me on some key issues that I had planned for a week ahead of time therefore costing me an additional $60 at the end of th…Read Moree move which I couldn't help feel was done on purpose. The two guys that actually did the move were good but my purpose of using Tri-County Movers was that they were supposed to be experts at packing pods. I was extremely organized and tried to make the packing relatively easy. Half way through I was worried about everything fitting and asked if I needed to condense items. They continually told me it would be close but I would be OK. At the end they had me throw half of my clothes in my car that was being transported ( which was not expected) and acted surprised that I planned on taking my elliptical and couch! I would have had them pack those 1st if I knew it was going to be an issue! I actually ended up moving to a different state with NOT ONE piece of furniture to sit on in my house!!!!! I blame Steve because he was supposed to be the expert and wasn't there to direct anyone. The walk through he did with the guys was so unbelievably half done, it was no surprise that my major items didn't make the move. I WOULD NOT recommend this company if you want all your desired items to come with you when your moving afar. I gave then a four star because they were extremely friendly and the older guy that actually moved my boxes was excellent and both guys worked their tales off! They deserve other jobs but needed direction from the Steve guy who unfortunately on this job failed everyone!
These gentlemen did an excellent job. They helped for 4 hours, during the middle of a 90+ degree day, moving heavy furniture upstairs, and never complained. Truth be told, I wasn't fully prepared for moving day (lots of stuff still unpacked), but these guys were polite about it and did what it took (including helping me disa…Read Moressemble some large items) to make the best of the situation.

Job: moving 60 boxes and several items of furniture from my apartment to a self storage center. Tri-County-Movers: Came on time and worked hard. Finished the job quickly and efficiently and treated my stuff with care. I will definitely use them again when we move our stuff out of storage. Highly recommended!
I would strongly recommend Tri-County Movers to anyone who wants a highly professional team to manage their move at a very fair price. Steve called me numerous times prior to the move to make sure he and his team were fully prepared and that they would meet our expectations. On the day of the move they were on-time, extremely …Read Morecareful (as if it was their own items) and keep me updated at every step of the process.

I must say, and I don't say this often for movers, the tri county did a great job! They were prompt and hard working. they called to confirm appointment and communicated professionally. My hat goes off to Bill Lacy. He really goes above and beyond. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

They showed up an hour late, called me 10 minutes after they were supposed to be here to let me know they were going to be 30 minutes late which was actually 50 minutes. Site listed they would be uniform crews, only 1 was in a shirt that said their company name. I requested 3 guys for 2 hours. It seemed as though one of the guys…Read More had never been on a move before and was new to the whole process. He stayed in my garage while the other 2 ran everything up the stairs. He did not know how to breakdown a bed frame so my husband had to do it while he spent 30 minutes trying to figure it out. He also was dragging my furniture across the floor and lifting things alone and slamming them into walls. I think had this guy not been on the job it probably would have been fine. The other two were very careful not to hit walls. I don't know if I would use them again.
This was a late order for help and I understand being a little late. However, the window was 1:00-2:00 and they did not arrive until 4:00 pm. The guys worked hard for one hour and 15 minutes.

They were on time, started work right away and just kept going until we were done. I really appreciated all they did, I would hire them again in a heart beat. I'm a real estate agent and see some real bad moving experiences, I will tell everyone I work with how great they were.
Our two movers went the extra mile literally since our POD was parked a block away They used their truck to shuttle everything to the garage where they staged it for moving up the narrow stairs to the second floor apartment And they did it with a great attitude !
The 2 gentlemen that packed my POD were fantastic! They arrived on time, were definitely prepared and treated my things with great respect- more than I expected. I can't say enough about how good they were and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
Crew arrived on time, were professional, and friendly. They used quality materials to pack and wrap my goods. My items travelled from CA to NJ and arrived perfectly. This was a great crew and I would highly recommend them again to anyone moving locally or long distance!
I enjoyed my experience with your team. Very helpful. It was a very overwhelming time for me and part of that was made easier due to the team you sent. Thank you so much, they arrived on time and did not waste anytime to get my truck packed. Took great care with my items and boxes.
They were wonderful. They came out and made a horrible day easier for me and treated my belongings with great care. I will most definitely be using them again when I move my stuff out of storage and into my own place again. Thank you for showing up at such last minute when no one else would. ....

I hired them for a Loading job. Strongly suggest that you find out where your labor is coming from in order to arrive at your job site. Unknowingly, I was in San Diego, and labor coming from Anaheim. They claimed there were an hour late because of traffic, an issue that would not have been an issue if they had been local. Als…Read Moreo, the job involved going about 3 miles to a second loading address, but they said they got lost, so that was another half hour that we waited for them...even though I suggested they follow me, or use GPS, they used my hastily drawn map and had no idea where the ocean was so went east instead of west...because they are not familiar with San Diego. While the men were late, tried calling their office, because no one called to tell us the status. After calling office, who said he would get right back to me...no return call, and another couple calls he just did not answer the phone. This was also an issue when trying to reach him the day before the job. There is some good news...they did a fabulous job of securing my belongings and packing for a long drive. It was really a problem of customer service and logistics. Use them if you live in Orange County only!!
Steve/Bill did a great job on my move. It was a move of 1 bedroom items into a PODS.

I had no idea they were coming until they called. They also were great. It turns out the piece was completely busted and not put in correctly (hence the 4 stars). I was not happy but it was on the inside. It would have been another story if it was the outside piece. Anyway, bed was fixed and they moved a huge dresser for me. I would use them again for the labor. But now about Stephen Russell. He gets 1 Star. He was impossible to get a hold of. I texted, emailed and called 2 numbers and was able to get a hold of him maybe once. The day before my move I called to confirm things and could barely hear him. I later found out he was out of town. When I contacted him about the bed problem he cancelled on me twice and told me he would be in touch the next morning (twice) and never did. I had to hunt him down again. I have not heard from him since. I understand he is working and can't drop everything but it shouldn't be impossible to get a hold of him. This is a service business and he needs to provide customer service as well as the service of moving.

They did an excellent job of very tightly packing the boxes and much of the furniture. We could not have packed the back of the containers more thoroughly. However, after they left we did have to disassemble a few items in near the doors of the containers to make additional room for our remaining items. The movers took care o…Read Moref all of the most important items (heaviest) that we especially needed help with and went above and beyond our expectations such that we were happy to pay for a few additional hours to save us a substantial amount of loading time. To address the general concerns of most potential customers: They were on time (something I've rarely seen in laborers) They were mostly (forgot some tape) prepared for the job They worked very hard They were respectful of our property, and we would use them again
Steve and Tony arrived on time with the right equipment. They moved furniture, took furniture apart and rebuilt it, and did not scratch, break, chip, or tear any part of the furniture or the wood and tile floors or the walls. They were incredibly hard-working and very polite and careful. I would use them again without any hesita…Read Moretion. Great job! Thanks!
I was having anxiety about packing and moving, but thankfully I called Tri-County Movers to help me. They were great. Packed everything with great care, were organized, walked me through what I needed and told me not to worry they were there for me. And Wow, their employees were happy doing their jobs. They were prepared, wo…Read Morerked fast, and worked hard. Friendly, courteous and respectful of my home, pets and belongings. I would definitely use them again and refer them to my friends and family. Thank you Tri-County Movers, Christian, Tony and Steve.
They did a great job. The whole truck was unloaded in 2 hours, which was pretty awesome considering they had to go up stairs and around a corner. They were nice and worked hard. They wrapped and unwrapped stuff in the blankets very quickly and expertly.
These guys were great. They had the entire 17 foot truck loaded in a little over 2 hours and they were very polite and friendly. They worked very hard in very hot weather with no air conditioning. Not a single thing was broken or damaged. They were a little late, but called to let us know and it didn't affect anything.
We needed help unloading two large relo-cubes and after reading the reviews on HireAHelper, we decided on Tri-County Movers. After submitting our request, owner Steve promptly contacted us and was super flexible working with our schedule. He sent us a pair of very nice, quick workers and with my husband's help, it took them on…Read Morely 2 hours (we live on the 2nd floor with an elevator). Steve checked in with me during the project, which shows excellent customer service. Highly recommend!
Good news, bad news. The good news is that once the movers arrived they did a great job. Moved some very heavy stuff up some difficult stairs and did not do any damage to the house or furnature. Seemed like nice guys. The bad news is that they were almost 2 hours late. I had to call them to confirm they were going to show up…Read More on the day agreed upon. I had to call them to find out they were going to be late. I had to give them directions to find my place after they called to say there were in Seal Beach instead of San Pedro. Again, once they showed up they were great. However, before they arrived they were less then professional to say the least.
I left three messages and sent an email to try to confirm the details of my move. Though I appreciated the quick acceptance of the job, the fact that I needed to make sure he would be able to be there at a specific time (as I will be driving 5 hours once the truck is loaded and need to leave at a decent time) and his lack of re…Read Moresponse is why I had to cancel. I had left messages before and after he accepted so I am not sure why he was unable to call or email me back. Since it has only been 12 hours since booking and it is my schedule that made it so I had to give up on hearing from him, I am at least leaving some stars.
The two movers that were hired to move my apartment were 15 minutes early, and worked above and beyond their duties. They brought tools to the job site, and broke down my bed and moved two giant desks with no problem at all. They even stayed a little bit past their time requested (15-20 mins). I was very satisfied with the mover…Read Mores, and their attitude was great as well!
good guys ... ran a little late from a previous job (and im sure the traffic didnt help) but i didnt mind i had plenty to do ... they arrived ready to git r done no complaints about the labyrinth of stairs just ready to lift heavy stuff, worked fast (definitely not trying to work slow to get extra hours) ... unloaded a 6x7x8' cu…Read Morebe in about an hour! very friendly and polite and worked hard and fast and no hassles
Please type review here...I want to thank Tri-County Movers for the professional job they did in helping me load my UHaul today. The two movers were on time and extremely professional. They did an excellent job of loading the truck, taking care to make sure nothing was broken. They were pleasant and very customer service oriente…Read Mored! Great Job !!!!
We needed help getting our POD emptied into our new apartment. We had a very short window to do it and Dave, Charles and Garrison were wonderful. They each introduced themselves from the start and worked very quickly and efficiently. Along the way we talked and they made the move quite fun which was a welcomed surprise. They wer…Read Moree personable and polite and had a sense of humor when it came to all the little things that usually stress movers out. Without their positive attitudes and willingness to work hard we would have never been done on time. We will definitely use them again. -Big Mama :)
I was disappointed from the very start, they show up without the equipment they state is included in the price. They damaged my couch and tv. One of the guys smelled like alcohol. I feel completely ripped off and every time I look at my 6 month old couch it will be terrible reminder. I would never use this company again.
Tri-County Movers stepped in to help us last minute on a job in California, while we are located in Texas. Steve stayed in touch with me through out the days they worked for us letting me know how everything was coming along. I was very impressed with his professionalism, and I will not hesitate to use Tri-County Movers again.
Our movers called and arrived early. They had all the supplies necessary to perform the job expediently. They were friendly, quick, careful, and completed the job in a very professional manner. I would highly recommend Stephen and his helper to anyone in the area. Thank you for a positive experience.
We had a little trouble getting started but once we were underway I was very surprised about what a wonderful, professional job they did. This was the friendliest service I've received since moving to California! Our movers were thorough, polite, and extremely personable. Our truck was unloaded in less than the time and after…Read More all that our movers were even cheery about shifting furniture around for us inside! My loyalty is always based on friendly customer service so I will definitely be using this company for my next move!
They were courteous and timely. They worked fast and very effiicient. They had everything in the truck within two hours flat. Everything was pack full and tight and I was able to take along even those things which I had thought I might need to leave behind. I was very happy with their service and would really recommend them …Read Moreto anyone.
I LOVED these guys! Christian and Jesse arrived early, assessed the move and went right to work. My move was not easy and to make matters worse, I grossly underestimated the time needed. They worked non-stop for 7 hours and only took one 20 minute lunch break. They were professional, extremely careful of my furniture and kno…Read Morewledgable in how to pack a truck and move furniture. I have used other movers in the past and these two were by far the best! Cyndi
We were very happy with the help provided by Brian and Christian. They were a bit late because they got stuck in traffic, but once they arrived they were friendly, professional, and competent. We originally booked them to help us move our piano, but when they got there, they assessed that the piano actually needed 3 movers (…Read Morewe only had 2 there), and said they would be happy to help us arrange another pick up time later. While this was slightly inconvenient, I was extremely thankful that they didn't just try to move it on their own. My piano is my baby and I would be heartbroken if it got damaged. They made the right call.
They were scheduled to show at 9am and work until 11a. They arrived at 8:30 and stayed until 10:30 instead, which still worked out for me. I had already started moving things myself so they went right to work. I am very happy with the service and will use them again.
Tri-County movers added stress to my move by not showing up on time and not providing the supplies they said they would have. The owner ended up staying and completing the job with the helpers to be sure it was done right. Once they showed up, things went smooth and they completed the job in only 1 hour.
Started out average but ended up awful. I let a LOT of stuff roll off my back. And in fact was even called "Super Mike" by the very guys hired to help me move. (story to come later). But I simply can't sit by any longer and not express my utter disgust with this company. From the beginning there was something a little off ab…Read Moreout them. First, they never contacted me to confirm. I ended up calling the office line and the owner's cel phone. When Steve got back to me he was very apologetic and agreed that someone should have called me before then. No big deal at all if that was where it ended. Michelle finally called to confirm but it went to my voice mail. So the next day from the road I called her back and went to her voice mail but assured her that I was coming and was going to be there on time and that I had already confirmed with Steve the owner. She calls back again and I confirm with her in person (now for the third time confirming) that indeed I was going to be in LA as scheduled. Again, no big deal, more of a funny annoyance at the time. Then I arrive in LA ahead of schedule and Edgar the mover calls me to confirm that I was going to be there on time. At this point I was like, you have got to be kidding me, but still laughing I told Edgar that I had now confirmed four different times and that yes I was already there ahead of schedule. Edgar was really excited with this news and said he'd be there early. Great! Wrong. Edgar showed up late. Still no big deal. I was friendly and just excited to be in LA. Now I live on the 3rd floor and there's no elevator. I also have really nice actual wood and very heavy (read not cheap IKEA particle board) furniture. I informed TriCounty movers of this ahead of time when I filled out the form to hire them. But of course that information wasn't given to Edgar. That being said, Edgar was a sport. He apologized for being late and vouched that they could get my furniture upstairs undamaged b/c they know several "magic tricks". I said great and told them I'd help them carry boxes up. Then Edgar made the comment that his helper friend needed to get out of the car and start helping. I said nothing. Eventually we were able to pull his helper out of the car to start working and we started the process. Edgar's helper was NOT made to be a mover. He was furious about the stairs and was honestly flat out lazy. Edgar yelled at him several times to keep working and was getting very frustrated with him as time went on. I feel for the man - it was hard work. But you know what? I didn't ask him to be a mover. He chose to do the job. So ummm pick up some boxes and move. I continued working through out moving multiple boxes up by hand while Edgar and his helper used dollies. Finally came time for the big furniture. They were really rough on my couch. Knocking it into walls and flipping it onto the platform. At this point I was a nervous wreck and it was breaking my heart. I actually politely reminded them that the dresser couldn't be treated that way and Edgar said "OK Boss, we'll get it up there". And I continued muscling up boxes three at a time. When they finally moved the dresser, I thought Edgar's helper was going to have a heart attack. Again I felt terrible for the guy, but again, why did he sign up to be a mover?? So they decided to dolly up the dresser. Made the most sense. And in Edgar's defense, he did put a furniture pad around the dresser to protect it. However, (I'm sure you know where this is going) but when all was said and done, the top of the dresser was permanently bruised from the bolts in the dolly. Now in my defense, I never raised my voice, I never yelled or cussed, and everyone will vouch that I handled myself very professionally. We continued on with the job and even though they took a small 5 minute break, I never stopped moving boxes. We finished the job in just two hours, exactly the time scheduled. However, that's when Edgar called me Super Mike saying that the only way they finished was b/c I worked my butt off, AND laughed and said "is that how they do it back in Cincinnati?" Yes boys, that is how we do it back in the midwest. We work the job til we get it done. So at the end they wanted me to sign damage waivers and pay them. I politely refused saying I wouldn't sign or pay anything until I talk to Steve about what next steps were for the furniture. Edgar was furious saying he wouldn't get paid until I released payment. I apologized and said he needed to take that up with Steve. At that point, with Edgar as my witness, I called Steve and left him a voice mail explaining the situation and even defended Edgar saying that he tried his best to protect my furniture, but the fact remained that it had been damaged. But since it was a voice mail, I didn't feel resolved and so I sent Edgar home without signing anyhting or releasing payment. Within minutes Michelle called and was very sweet and apologetic. Again, I never raised my voice and we had a very nice polite and professional conversation about my experience. She was very apologetic and assured me that they would take care of me in every way shape or possible, but that I needed to go ahead and release payment. So I agreed with the proviso that steps would be taken to ammend the damage. That was now exactly two weeks ago, and guess what, have HEARD NOTHING from Tri-County Movers. NOT A THING! Obviously I'm not going to let this die. But I would ABSOLUTELY NOT recommend these movers to anyone.
As for my input from the help we received from Edgar and Mario, they did a really good job, they were quick and had a great sense of humor. They were very pleasant and they worked extremely hard getting everything packed into our 26' U-Haul for us. Only comment, my husband had to reorganize how they loaded the truck a little …Read Morebit but all in all, they were extremely helpful and pleasant to work with. We would use them again if we were in California. Thank you!
I specifically want to comment on the actual 2 helpers that arrived at my location. Both Christian and John were very professional, understanding and courteous. Upon arrival they immediately began the move and completed it within 20 minutes and departed once I had confirmed completion via the telephone. I say this because I …Read Morehad difficulty with the owner, Stephen Russell. To be fair I want to say that I had some difficulty obtaining the truck that I was renting to move the furniture to the helper location. I notified Stephen that I would not make the scheduled time of 2:00 PM, however, in that I had sceduled for 2 hours time I was confident that I would arrive before 3:00 PM and that would give them sufficient time to unload the 6 peices of furniture. Stephen said that would be fine because he was at another location and was running behind. Bottom line it wasn't until 6:00 PM that Christian and John arrived. They informed me that they were notified at 5:00 PM of the assignment. That tells me that Stephen was not totally honest with me. as he had said that they would be there at 4:00 Pm and Again at 5:00 PM. Bottom line is that the actual service from Christian and John was outstanding. Unfortunately, I cannot say tht for Stephen. My rating goes to Christian and John only.
Gilbert and Justin were fantastic. We had to move our date when the helpers arrived the first time to the next day and were told it was not a problem. Gilbert and Justin were professional, courteous and very helpful. Would highly recommend!
Eric and Robert were amazing! I needed to move everything out of my 2 bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor...(no elevator) into my 26 ft uhual.

The Tri-County Movers crew did an awesome job.

Christian and John were fantastic. They called before the job and arrived an hour early.allowing us to get more done than planned. They are very hard working and courteous. All of our furniture was handled with care and packed into a container in a smart and professional manner. Very highly recommended.
They were very efficient and hard workers, and did it all with a smile. They were very easy to work with and made the whole ordeal very simple and easy. This team was awesome... if only they could help me unpack when my stuff got to Washington! Thanks!
Excellent Work! The workers did a very good job of filling all space in the truck and keeping things from moving around during a long move. Only a couple items had minor wear from the move, and that was mostly due to us not having enough blankets early on. We needed an extra hour and they were more than happy to stay for that…Read More time at the extra hourly rate. I was hesitant originally to have helpers, but I am more than happy that I did and would have definitely done it again. Thank you Tri-County Movers!
Tri-County Movers saved my move.

Movers were awesome. They worked their tails off for us and padded the furniture as it should be.

The two men (David & Garland) that helped with the loading of my truck were extremely capable, easy to get along with, knowledgeable, & hard working.
