4 Surprises About Moving Out On Your Own
- You may not think you have too much stuff, but you’ll be shocked at just how much you can fit in your old room at your parents’ house.
- It may seem like you can discard almost everything, but you are probably (and unexpectedly) attached to some of the nostalgia you find when you pack.
- Moving supplies aren’t cheap. Luckily, you can get free moving boxes from several different establishments if you ask nicely.
- When you do pay for moving supplies, they are very durable and can withstand a lot of external pressure!
Cut the Costs of Your Move Like a Natural
- Skip the full-service moving van with its high pricing. Instead, rent a one-way cargo van for small moves.
- Ask your moving company what fees are associated with your relocation.
- Instead of utilizing the packing services of moving companies, make sure to pack your boxes yourself.
- Utilize the interactive tool for finding the most reputable moving companies that Moving Authority provides for free.
The moving industry in the United States was deregulated with the Household Goods Transportation Act of 1980. This act allowed interstate movers to issue binding or fixed estimates for the first time. Doing so opened the door to hundreds of new moving companies to enter the industry. This led to an increase in competition and soon movers were no longer competing on services but on price. As competition drove prices lower and decreased what were already slim profit margins, "rogue" movers began hijacking personal property as part of a new scam. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) enforces Federal consumer protection regulations related to the interstate shipment of household goods (i.e., household moves that cross State lines). FMCSA has held this responsibility since 1999, and the Department of Transportation has held this responsibility since 1995 (the Interstate Commerce Commission held this authority prior to its termination in 1995).
Advocation for better transportation beganhistoricallyin the late 1870s of the United States. This is when the Good Roads Movement first occurred, lasting all the way throughout the 1920s. Bicyclist leaders advocated for improved roads.Their acts led to the turning of local agitation into the national political movement it became.
Released in 1998, the film Black Dog featured Patrick Swayze as a truck driver who made it out of prison.However, his life of crime continued, as hewas manipulatedinto the transportation of illegal guns.Writer Scott Doviak has described the movie as a "high-octane riff on White Line Fever" as well as "a throwback to the trucker movies of the 70s".
