TriStar Trucking Bait and Switch Scam Artists , Internet
I was one of the manytaken for the scam these guys are running and was demanded over $300 more than the quoted price in the contract.
Contract quote: $600 + $170 broker fee = $770 Total
I paid the $175 deposit (which they gladly took a check or credit card for deposit) and upon delivery, took my car hostage and was then demand to pay $900 in order to have the car released to me [For a total of $1075]. Finally I was told they did not take Check or Credit Card. Im sure they are worried people would cancel the check or call the credit card companies on them after they were taken for these scams.
Not to mention Pickup and Delivery were both 3-4 days late and I actually had to deliver the car to them!
Since March of this year alone they have received 27 complaints regarding the same issues.
On multiple occasions the company's defense for it's actions are calling its own customers liars and scam artists. Since the "I'm rubber and your glue" defense is alway a good one.
Now you may wonder .. "why the good reviews?" Well, on the same public rating website they "admit" to bribing people for good reviews.

They have an "F" rating with the Better Business Bureau and multiple complaints.

We work hard for our money and these crooks find loopholes and use deceptive practices to take it.
Together we can at least warn others from them taking any more dollars from hard working Americans.
