This was another great experience. The crew arrived on time and were not only professional and polite, they were fun to be around but will give them 4 stars because my 2 chairs has been damaged. Thank you.
Wish I could give negative stars! This was the more awful experience ever! I am a solitary instructor that moved from Alaska to ohio. This was my first crosscountry move and it cost me 8,000+ dollars... You would have thought I was paying for some client administration! The lead packer went out and left two packers there alone. They needed to pack till midnight the night I flew out. At that point I needed to call to check whether they had a last weight on my truck and it took 11 days to get my shipment weighed and my quote discounted. At that point I was misled and told that I had unloading as a feature of my turn I mean what am I paying $8,000 dollars for?!!! What's more, it wasn't! It took 9 weeks and 4 days to get my things! I'm an educator and have taught six weeks of unique needs preschool with none of my materials!! I was in interim lodging lastly discovered 9 days before my things were to arrive and by then I had no chance to get of getting a house before my things arrived so as of now I paying for capacity. What's more, on the day my home products were to arrive I discover my things are in Kentucky! Shipping my things to Kentucky from Alaska thoroughly sidesteps ohio! So they squandered a greater amount of my time and my things were at long last conveyed three days after the fact!
Never at any point utilize this organization!

By the time 2006 came, there were over 26 million trucks on the United States roads, each hauling over 10 billion short tons of freight (9.1 billion long tons). This was representing almost 70% of the total volume of freight.When, as a driver or an automobile drivers, most automobile drivers arelargelyunfamiliar with large trucks.As as a result of these unaware truck drivers and their massive 18-wheeler'snumerousblind spots.The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has determined that 70% of fatal automobile/tractor trailer accident happen for a reason.
