Thought I would have a great experience. Pre-move survey was conducted quickly and professionally. However, they were experience a busy month, and were in the middle of moving a lot of equipment for the University of Alaska SE.
On the first day of the move they only sent over 2 guys, but they were hard workers. They packed up almost the entirety of the garage and kitchen, which are apparently the two hardest rooms to pack, single-handedly. I was impressed.
The second day there were 4-5 guys there, and they finished the rest of the house save for a few large pieces and furniture. On the last day only 2 guys showed up; really 3, but one left after an hour because he had celebrated his 21st birthday recently and was hungover. It took almost all day to load the boxes because it was just 2 guys working.
After they were finished, the trailer sat in front of my house. I thought they’d bring a truck to move it, but I was told it would either leave that night or the following day. The team leader didn’t have a padlock, and I was told I couldn’t lock the trailer because it had other people’s belongings in it, and they had already signed acceptance of my property. The teamleader said that if they didn’t drive it away that night he’d come out and put a padlock on it. When I came back in the morning, the trailer was still sitting in front of my house unsecured.
Once I arrived in Eagle River and got my boxes, I couldn’t unpack right away because I immediately had to report to my unit. Over the next week and a half as I unpacked, I had a lot of issues.
In closing, if you use this service, especially if you’re military; watch them closely. Pack up what you absolutely cannot stand to have broken or get stolen, and check everything thoroughly on the other side.
In 1976, the number one hit on the Billboard chart was "Convoy," a novelty song by C.W. McCall about a convoy of truck drivers evading speed traps and toll booths across America. The song inspired the 1978 action film Convoy directed by Sam Peckinpah. After the film's release, thousands of independent truck drivers went on strike and participated in violent protests during the 1979 energy crisis (although similar strikes had occurred during the 1973 energy crisis).
The FMCSA is a well-known division of the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT). It is generally responsible for the enforcement of FMCSA regulations. The driver of a CMV must keep a record of working hours via a log book.This record must reflect the total number of hours spent driving and resting, as well as the time at which the change of duty status occurred.In place of a log book, a motor carrier may choose to keep track of their hours using an electronic on-board recorder (EOBR). Thisautomaticallyrecords the amount of time spent driving the vehicle.
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 decade of the 70's in the United States was a memorable one, especially for the notion of truck driving. This seemed todramaticallyincrease popularity among trucker culture.Throughout this era, and even in today's society, truck driversare romanticizedas modern-day cowboys and outlaws.These stereotypes were due to their use of Citizens Band (CB) radios to swap information with other drivers. Informationregardingthe 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 alsobe usedfor 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.
