Five stars for a last-minute call for help and fine work. Kevin's help was much-needed after our original crew backed out with short notice. Upon recommendation from a friend, I called KEVCOR and - on a busy weekend - he obliged by providing an able-bodied and good-natured man for our ride to another state to collect estate items. (We'd rented a truck). Our family, along with our knowledgeable KEVCOR crew member, Paul, had the job finished and were back in BHAM at the storage unit within hours. Then, entirely unsolicited, owner Kevin Soles and two other of his brigade, appeared to help us unload. All communication was prompt and clear, with promises kept. His attitude was one of "we can and will accommodate." We can't recommend this company and its professional behavior enough. Thanks, KEVCOR!

They were extremely circumspect of her and ensured we knew they had everything close by. Furthermore, they're FAST!!! All out move time from our two room apartment suite to the next house... 3 1/2 hours! Appraisal was spot on the nose. Ace Tip: there is a base drive time of 30 minutes (doubled)... So a hour of drive time considered into our 5 hour gauge. And still, after all that the aggregate time was 4 1/2 hours, so they completed in front of timetable.

This administration was WONDERFUL. I called and got an appt the following day. The folks appeared acceptable on time and were well disposed and gracious, the heap up was brisk and they completed everything in a matter of minutes (garbage pull away). The administration isn't modest, yet when you're moving and require stuff gone it's sensible - particularly since they do everything for you. I'd prescribe these folks instant.

This organization is exceptionally questionable. They go about as thought they are helping us out and we are paying a huge number of dollars for a move. Their telephone and client administration sucks. They grabbed my furniture on October twelfth and I was assume to get is it on the 21st in Nevada. Come the 21st and this gentleman Joe that works in Dispatch converses with me such as he has no idea of anything and lets me know that the truck in departing south Florida today the 21st or tomorrow. I feel that I gave them all that anyone could need time to get this shipment right. After that I kept call ing to see what the status was on the driver and they have no clue on the driver. What sort of control and backing for their customers is this? Well I will let you know this organization is exceptionally untrustworthy considering that I have 2 little children and no furniture in my home for over a week. They basically have all that I claim. On the 28th, they come to me and offer me a markdown of like 5% which is around 150 off. That is watching over their customers right. well I believe that is a slap on the face with regards to benefit considering they totally dropped that ball. Correspondence with this organization is terrible and if the proprietor is perusing this he ought to be embarrassed about the administration they are giving their customers. By the way my bill was 4,200. Horrendous COMPANY! Try not to RECOMMEND THEM AT ALL!

We've utilized a couple of various moving moving company throughout the years all around L.A. what's more, Walter's Transfer was by a wide margin the best. For our last move I got three unique quotes from different moving company and Walter's had the best cost and no shrouded expenses/counterfeit surcharges...plus they had the biggest truck. On moving day they appeared on time and gave all the closet boxes I required at no extra cost. There were 3 movers absolute, however Frank the "head mover"/manager of the other two folks was marvelous. He was so proficient and kept things moving at an enduring pace. He has years of involvement with this organization, and he said the proprietor was an incredible gentleman to work for (I really conversed with the proprietor on the telephone when I got the quote and he did appear like a decent fellow). Moving can be truly distressing and doesn't generally go as arranged, however this time it went shockingly smooth. One of my bookshelves did get harmed, yet for the most part since it was shoddy and it wasn't generally their deficiency. General I profoundly prescribe this moving company and would utilize them once more.

This organization made a FABULOUS showing pressing and moving 2 truck heaps of family unit things for my crew. From my early introduction starting with the opportune and point by point gauge through the emptying of the last box has been completely first class.

We are resigned Navy and have done a great deal of moving and this has been my best experience as such. Much obliged to you such a great amount for making an extremely unpleasant assignment a great deal less distressing!!

Cash well spent. We were going to lease a truck and attempt to proceed onward our own. I'm so happy we didn't. I had called different organizations and the quote I got from Motivated Movers was the least expensive, however the administration we got was first class. They moved us rapidly and the greater part of our stuff made it securely to the new house. The folks all had awesome mentalities and were useful getting everything set up. On the off chance that I need to move once more (and I genuinely trust I don't), I wouldn't dither to contract them once more.

Took a risk on a nearby moving company and hit a grand slam with Purple People Movers!!! They were so quick and effective that they had my whole 2/1 loft (second floor) stacked onto the truck in 45 minutes level. The way that they work on a level rate over a hourly rate was extremely decent and doesn't give impetus to wait around. They were exceptionally watchful with the greater part of my effects and asked me how I needed certain things stuffed. They likewise discharged out a capacity unit I had (second floor) also in short request. Every one of the three movers were exceptionally respectful and affable and had my sweetheart and I moved into our new flat (second floor....) after each one of those stops in less than four hours. It was a neighborhood move however they didn't squander a minute and I didn't need to lift a finger. Much less expensive than I could have sought after also :) Would prescribe to anybody and will utilize at whatever time I have to move later on! Sorry it took so long to compose this, yet thank you Purple People Movers!!

This was the first occasion when I didn't hazard spinal damage by moving myself, and I'm so content with my choice! They cited me a reasonable cost, and adhered to it. I've amassed a significant accumulation of china throughout the years and had practically surrendered myself to the way that not every last bit of it would survive the move unscathed. It did! I will be utilizing SPARKS MOVING and STORAGE in the event that I move later on.

As we've learned the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 was crucial in the construction of the Interstate Highway System. Described as an interconnected network of the controlled-access freeway. It also allowed larger trucks to travel at higher speeds through rural and urban areas alike. This act was also the first to allow the first federal largest gross vehicle weight limits for trucks, set at 73,208 pounds (33,207 kg). The very same year, Malcolm McLean pioneered modern containerized intermodal shipping. This allowed for the more efficient transfer of cargo between truck, train, and ships.

Receiving nation attention during the 1960's and 70's, songs and movies about truck driving were major hits. Finding solidarity, truck drivers participated in widespread strikes. Truck drivers from all over opposed the rising cost of fuel. Not to mention this is during the energy crises of 1873 and 1979. In 1980 the Motor Carrier Act drastically deregulated the trucking industry. Since then trucking has come to dominate the freight industry in the latter part of the 20th century. This coincided with what are now known as 'big-box' stores such as Target or Wal-Mart.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 40 million United States citizens have moved annually over the last decade. Of those people who have moved in the United States, 84.5% of them have moved within their own state, 12.5% have moved to another state, and 2.3% have moved to another country.

In 1978 Sylvester Stallone starred in the film "F.I.S.T.". The story is loosely based on the 'Teamsters Union'. This union is a labor union which includes truck drivers as well as its then president, Jimmy Hoffa.

The Federal Bridge Law handles relations between the gross weight of the truck, the number of axles, and the spacing between them. This is how they determine is the truck can be on the Interstate Highway system. Each state gets to decide the maximum, under the Federal Bridge Law. They determine by vehicle in combination with axle weight on state and local roads

All cars must pass some sort of emission check, such as a smog check to ensure safety. Similarly, trucks are subject to noise emission requirement, which is emanating from the U.S. Noise Control Act. This was intended to protect the public from noise health side effects. The loud noise is due to the way trucks contribute disproportionately to roadway noise. This is primarily due to the elevated stacks and intense tire and aerodynamic noise characteristics.

The interstate moving industry in the United States maintains regulation by the FMCSA, which is part of the USDOT. With only a small staff (fewer than 20 people) available to patrol hundreds of moving companies, enforcement is difficult. As a result of such a small staff, there are in many cases, no regulations that qualify moving companies as 'reliable'. Without this guarantee, it is difficult to a consumer to make a choice. Although, moving companies can provide and often display a DOT license.

A semi-trailer is almost exactly what it sounds like, it is a trailer without a front axle. Proportionally, its weight is supported by two factors. The weight falls upon a road tractor or by a detachable front axle assembly, known as a dolly. Generally, a semi-trailer is equipped with legs, known in the industry as "landing gear". This means it can be lowered to support it when it is uncoupled. In the United States, a trailer may not exceed a length of 57 ft (17.37 m) on interstate highways. However, it is possible to link two smaller trailers together to reach a length of 63 ft (19.20 m).

In some states, a business route is designated by adding the letter "B" after the number instead of placing a "Business" sign above it. For example, Arkansas signs US business route 71 as "US 71B". On some route shields and road signs, the word "business" is shortened to just "BUS". This abbreviation is rare and usually avoided to prevent confusion with bus routes.

A relatable reality t.v. show to the industry is the show Ice Road Truckers, which premiered season 3 on the History Channel in 2009. The show documents the lives of truck drivers working the scary Dalton Highway in Alaska. Following drivers as they compete to see which one of them can haul the most loads before the end of the season. It'll grab you with its mechanical problems that so many have experienced and as you watch them avoid the pitfalls of dangerous and icy roads!

The term "lorry" has an ambiguous origin, but it is likely that its roots were in the rail transport industry. This is where the word is known to have been used in 1838 to refer to a type of truck (a freight car as in British usage) specifically a large flat wagon. It may derive from the verb lurry, which means to pull or tug, of uncertain origin. It's expanded meaning was much more exciting as "self-propelled vehicle for carrying goods", and has been in usage since 1911. Previously, unbeknownst to most, the word "lorry" was used for a fashion of big horse-drawn goods wagon.

Compliance, Safety, and Accountability (CSA) are fundamental to the FMCSA's compliance program. The purpose of the CSA program is to oversee and focus on motor carriers' safety performance. To enforce such safety regulations, the CSA conducts roadside inspections and crash investigations. The program issues violations when instances of noncompliance with CSA safety regulations are exposed.   Unfortunately, the CSA's number of safety investigation teams and state law enforcement partners are rather small in comparison to the millions of CMV companies and commercial driver license (CDL) holders. A key factor in the CSA program is known as the Safety Measurement System (SMS). This system relies on data analysis to identify unsafe companies to arrange them for safety interventions. SMS is incredibly helpful to CSA in finding and holding companies accountable for safety performance.  

Implemented in 2014, the National Registry, requires all Medical Examiners (ME) who conduct physical examinations and issue medical certifications for interstate CMV drivers to complete training on FMCSA’s physical qualification standards, must pass a certification test. This is to demonstrate competence through periodic training and testing. CMV drivers whose medical certifications expire must use MEs on the National Registry for their examinations. FMCSA has reached its goal of at least 40,000 certified MEs signing onto the registry. All this means is that drivers or movers can now find certified medical examiners throughout the country who can perform their medical exam. FMCSA is preparing to issue a follow-on “National Registry 2” rule stating new requirements. In this case, MEs are to submit medical certificate information on a daily basis. These daily updates are sent to the FMCSA, which will then be sent to the states electronically. This process will dramatically decrease the chance of drivers falsifying medical cards.

The main purpose of the HOS regulation is to prevent accidents due to driver fatigue. To do this, the number of driving hours per day, as well as the number of driving hours per week, have been limited. Another measure to prevent fatigue is to keep drivers on a 21 to 24-hour schedule in order to maintain a natural sleep/wake cycle. Drivers must take a daily minimum period of rest and are allowed longer "weekend" rest periods. This is in hopes to combat cumulative fatigue effects that accrue on a weekly basis.

The USDOT (USDOT or DOT) is considered a federal Cabinet department within the U.S. government. Clearly, this department concerns itself with all aspects of transportation with safety as a focal point. The DOT was officially established by an act of Congress on October 15, 1966, beginning its operation on April 1, 1967. Superior to the DOT, the United States Secretary of Transportation governs the department. The mission of the DOT is to "Serve the United States by ensuring a fast, safe, efficient, accessible, and convenient transportation system that meets our vital national interests and enhances the quality of life for the American people, today and into the future." Essentially this states how important it is to improve all types of transportation as a way to enhance both safety and life in general etc. It is important to note that the DOT is not in place to hurt businesses, but to improve our "vital national interests" and our "quality of life". The transportation networks are in definite need of such fundamental attention. Federal departments such as the USDOT are key to this industry by creating and enforcing regulations with intentions to increase the efficiency and safety of transportation. 

The 1980s were full of happening things, but in 1982 a Southern California truck driver gained short-lived fame. His name was Larry Walters, also known as "Lawn Chair Larry", for pulling a crazy stunt. He ascended to a height of 16,000 feet (4,900 m) by attaching helium balloons to a lawn chair, hence the name. Walters claims he only intended to remain floating near the ground and was shocked when his chair shot up at a rate of 1,000 feet (300 m) per minute. The inspiration for such a stunt Walters claims his poor eyesight for ruining his dreams to become an Air Force pilot.

The decade of the 70's in the United States was a memorable one, especially for the notion of truck driving. This seemed to dramatically increase popularity among trucker culture. Throughout this era, and even in today's society, truck drivers are romanticized as modern-day cowboys and outlaws. These stereotypes were due to their use of Citizens Band (CB) radios to swap information with other drivers. Information regarding the locations of police officers and transportation authorities. The general public took an interest in the truckers 'way of life' as well. Both drivers and the public took interest in plaid shirts, trucker hats, CB radios, and CB slang.

The most basic purpose of a trailer jack is to lift the trailer to a height that allows the trailer to hitch or unhitch to and from the towing vehicle. Trailer jacks may also be used for the leveling of the trailer during storage. To list a few common types of trailer jacks are A-frame jacks, swivel jacks, and drop-leg jacks. Other trailers, such as horse trailers, have a built-in jack at the tongue for this purpose.

Commercial trucks in the U.S. pay higher road taxes on a State level than the road vehicles and are subject to extensive regulation. This begs the question of why these trucks are paying more. I'll tell you. Just to name a few reasons, commercial truck pay higher road use taxes. They are much bigger and heavier than most other vehicles, resulting in more wear and tear on the roadways. They are also on the road for extended periods of time, which also affects the interstate as well as roads and passing through towns. Yet, rules on use taxes differ among jurisdictions.

In the United States and Canada, the cost for long-distance moves is generally determined by a few factors. The first is the weight of the items to be moved and the distance it will go. Cost is also based on how quickly the items are to be moved, as well as the time of the year or month which the move occurs. In the United Kingdom and Australia, it's quite different. They base price on the volume of the items as opposed to their weight. Keep in mind some movers may offer flat rate pricing.
