Long-distance move from Long Beach, CA to Fort Myers, FL
Throughout the step, Westar maintained calling to make sure we paid the extra price. There were issues with the chauffeur paying the men employed to move our things furniture as well as also re-assembling. We finished up paying out of pocket for someone to remain to re-assemble our furnishings and also are still trying to recover the price from Westar. And Also, Weststar Relocation still owes us money they have not returned
My moving experience was great from beginning to end. I moved from Los Angeles CA to Chicago IL. The movers were on schedule, respectful and worked efficiently. Everything arrived without a problem with the exception of a few minor dings on my items, as expected, it is a long distance move after all. I would highly recommend them to anyone planning to move long distance.
Weststar Relocation is the most professional moving company I've ever done business with. I had been searching for moving company for over a month and decided to call Weststar because they've recently moved a coworker of mine,who was very happy with his move.Alex and the two other movers arrived on time and quickly did their job. They had everything packed up in less than five hours.They took care to keep our belongings safe from any damages and treated them like they were their own. All the furniture was carefully rapped up.If you're looking for the best moving company,look no further.
I've recently moved from CA to TX. Best interstate moving and storage our broker, recommended us Weststar, and we've never regretted following their advice. The movers were very professional and knew exactly what they were doing. They also provided us with packing supplies to make sure nothing gets broken. They delivered everything on time. Alex was always in touch with us throughout the whole process. We're very happy with our move.
We had a coast to coast move and found BIMS to be the most economical solution for our large family. We received a great sales pitch, were told they "were with us every step of the way" but things started breaking down close to moving day. Three days before the move, we were told WESTAR RELOCATION would be our moving company. I called my BIMS rep to tell her I wasnt happy with Westar reviews and was very nervous. She informed me I had nothing to worry about and Westar was "A" rated, etc. Moving day came and all of the things I read about in the Weststar reviews came to life - price gouging for plastic wrap, being told we needed an extra truck, etc. We also paid for an exclusive truck and direct delivery and Weststar told us we didnt get any of that. You name it, they tried to squeeze more money from us. I knew their game and called BIMS. BIMS stepped in after two full days of unnecessary stress from Weststar to help. BIMS also did help when Weststar refused to deliver the goods immediately, which was the original plan. Delivery day came and my boxes were handled like kids throwing legos at each other. Boxes that clearly said FRAGILE were thrown around in my garage. After noticing the lack of professionalism, I asked one of the workers if he was a professional mover - He and the three other guys were picked up in the Home Depot parking lot as day laborers on the south side of Philadelphia. One was a convicted felon, one was so hung over he threw up in my backyard (see picture) and tried to cover it with his shirt as if we wouldnt notice and he was illiterate so he couldnt read me the numbers on the boxes. The last guy appeared to be juicing on the job with whatever bottle he had in a brown paper bag. The Russian truck driver (not a professional mover, only a transporter) didn't speak english, demanded his all cash payment and proceeded to let these random street people unload my household goods while he sat in his air conditioned semi. Nobody affiliated with Weststar was at delivery. There were not professional movers involved at all. We decided not to let the criminal and drunk (who cleaned up the vomit with his hands after we confronted the truck driver and then carried more boxes into the house) or the other street people in our house. They unloaded everything into the garage and driveway. They had no idea they were supposed to assemble the furniture disassembled at pickup nor were any of these guys qualified to do so. They literally dropped my washer / dryer off the truck upside down (over 3.5k to replace), they dropped numerous fragile boxes, broke furniture, rode in my kids battery powered ATVs, etc. Expensive bikes were all thrown together, like a mess of metal spaghetti. It was actually something out of a horror movie and I now know why I wasnt able to purchase moving insurance with this carrier. I still have over 50 unaccounted boxes. Opening the boxes on this end has led to all types of suprises like ceramic lamps thrown in boxes with heavy scales, baseballs. It was like someone blind just threw things into a box. No wrapping, no care of the items. Stupidly, we didnt self pack anything breakable thinking the "professionals" would do a better job. BIMS helped until the problems became serious and now that I am requesting resolution for the lack of professional movers (breach of contract), cant get any responses from those who were "there with you every step of the way." If BIMS resolves this perhaps I can update my review but beware as you are at the mercy of their "A" rated movers, which were nothing more than home depot day laborers in my situation.
I had a really good experience with WestStar as the broker. I am not entirely sure how the process works, but we contacted them - they gave us an accurate quote and all the information necessary to make our decision to move forward. We had a crazy tight timeline and somehow they managed to make it work even though it was the busy time of year (May). We moved from Seattle to San Fran (shorter move) and had our stuff in about 3 days! We paid for packing and unpacking service. That part of the service was "okay". They didn't have the best skills at organization, but our stuff was not prepped at all! We decided to move and had the movers there in 1 week, so we didn't get to do much preparation ourselves. On the back side, there was one particular Russian mover that was AAAA MAZING! He had clearly been doing it for years and was strong and efficient. I wish I could remember his name, but it's been several weeks now. Basically, he knew when to ask for guidance (e.g. what goes where) and when to just get out of his way! I think the difference maker is always the actual crew that you get. Mine was top notch - LA based. I can't speak for the others, but I had a good experience with them.
Weststar was contracted by Colonial Van Lines, another unethical company, and to date can not tell us where our entire life is at. They over charged, brought shuttle vehicles without contacting us to let us know that that there would be an additional charge. Very difficult to deal with the driver in charge and no straight answers after over 20 days of having our effects in their possession. no one seems to know where anything is or when it will arrive. We have been trying to find out anything thru Colonial, and this has been completely useless, plus called directly to Weststar and have not received any helpful information. Only that the driver should know and Allie can not get a hold of the driver, so knows nothing.
PLEASE do not use this company. They were actually hired by Colonial Van Lines Relocation that I hired (not knowing that at the time) My pickup in Los Angeles was 11/14 and they had a delivery window of up until the 24th. They came on time but started adding packing charges right and left to the quotes I was given. When they found out I had items insured, they told me they needed to be shrink wrapped at an additional fee. Should have been a red flag, but no, and now it is December 2nd and they are telling me that the delivery window is now Dec 6-10th. This is the 4th delivery date I have been given, and meanwhile I am sleeping on a borrowed futon on the floor of an empty house. I called them today to say I was sending someone else to get the load, but they tell me ' it's on the trailer in the middle of a load and will be $1100 to unload' Can they prove it's on there with a picture? Of course not. Avoid them or you may NEVER get your belongings, I have not.
This company quoted me $5500 and the actual bill was $8900. They damaged my furniture and contenct me with Anthem Claims Management LLC (under carrier for Weststar) to reslove issue and damages. anthem is a shaddy company run by one person and will not respond to 6 written requests to settle damages to my furniture. I am now working with CA DOJ, BBB and the DOT. This compoany has multiple complaints against them on the BBB website. Do not use these folks!!!!
