I am moving from Anchorage to New Jersey and chose the Moving Man. I can't think of enough good things to say. I was pretty stressed out but the guys were great, fast and tried to pack as much of my stuff as they could. It made the whole process easy and the entire process was very professional and eased my mind a lot . The quote was no problem and came in right around the ballpark of what was estimated. I highly recommend this company.

Avoid this company if you need to move. I have been trying for over a month to get a quote from them and nobody gets back to you. They came out and assessed my things and each time I called hoping to get a quote and confirming a move date I get nowhere. In the long run needed to talk to another person because of a plain lack of response.


DON'T CHOOSE THIS COMPANY!!! My family absurdly utilized this organization to move from Anchorage to Olympia, WA in 2014. More than one thousand dollars of our products were stolen from the shipment (which was more than two weeks late) and invaluable family photographs and tokens. The hundred dollars the proprietor charged us to wrap our things was never done either and a few bits of our furniture broke as a consequence of poor taking care of and stacking. In the wake of checking on them on facebook, the proprietor, Martin, continued to irritate us in a profane way through private messages. He didn't assume any liability for this occasion and would not permit us to record a case for their organization protection. We got no remuneration for this loss of property.

Question 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

Question Business routes always have the same number as the routes they parallel. For example, U.S. 1 Business is a loop off, and paralleling, U.S. Route 1, and Interstate 40 Business is a loop off, and paralleling, Interstate 40.

Question

The Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula is a mathematical formula used in the United States to determine the appropriate gross weight for a long distance moving vehicle, based on the axle number and spacing. Enforced by the Department of Transportation upon long-haul truck drivers, it is used as a means of preventing heavy vehicles from damaging roads and bridges. This is especially in particular to the total weight of a loaded truck, whether being used for commercial moving services or for long distance moving services in general.
 
According to the Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula, the total weight of a loaded truck (tractor and trailer, 5-axle rig) cannot exceed 80,000 lbs in the United States. Under ordinary circumstances, long-haul equipment trucks will weight about 15,000 kg (33,069 lbs). This leaves about 20,000 kg (44,092 lbs) of freight capacity. Likewise, a load is limited to the space available in the trailer, normally with dimensions of 48 ft (14.63 m) or 53 ft (16.15 m) long, 2.6 m (102.4 in) wide, 2.7 m (8 ft 10.3 in) high and 13 ft 6 in or 4.11 m high.

Question Unfortunately for the trucking industry, their image began to crumble during the latter part of the 20th century. As a result, their reputation suffered. More recently truckers have been portrayed as chauvinists or even worse, serial killers. The portrayals of semi-trailer trucks have focused on stories of the trucks becoming self-aware. Generally, this is with some extraterrestrial help.

Question Smoke and the Bandit was released in 1977, becoming the third-highest grossing movie. Following only behind Star Wars Episode IV and Close Encounter of the Third Kind, all three movies making an impact on popular culture. Conveniently, during that same year, CB Bears debuted as well. The Saturday morning cartoon features mystery-solving bears who communicate by CB radio. As the 1970's decade began to end and the 80's broke through, the trucking phenomenon had wade. With the rise of cellular phone technology, the CB radio was no longer popular with passenger vehicles, but, truck drivers still use it today.
