Don't Ignore Plants When Moving!
- Plants, because they are living things, aren’t allowed to go inside of a moving truck.
- If you’re staying local, it’s best to transport your plants and flowers in your own personal vehicle.
- If you’re moving long-distance, however, this can be somewhat difficult.
- If you’ll take your own car along with having a moving truck, and you can take your plants along for the ride.
- If you’re traveling a long way without a personal vehicle, it’s for the best that you find a new home for your plants. Get some new ones at your destination to make your new place feel like home.
Relocating Like a Pro

- This means that you should think about whether you are moving your home, your office, or even both.
- Moving only your home is called a residential move.This is the most common type of relocating service in the industry.
- Moving only your office or your business is called a commercial move. This happens when a business graduates to a larger space, gains a new location, or moves to a new location.
- A combination of a residential and office move happens when a business owner begins again in a new place.

In many countries, driving a truck requires a special driving license. The requirements and limitations vary with each different jurisdiction.
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).
Trailer stability can be defined as the tendency of a trailer to dissipate side-to-side motion. The initial motion may be caused by aerodynamic forces, such as from a cross wind or a passing vehicle. One common criterion for stability is the center of mass location with respect to the wheels, which can usually be detected by tongue weight. If the center of mass of the trailer is behind its wheels, therefore having a negative tongue weight, the trailer will likely be unstable. Another parameter which is less commonly a factor is the trailer moment of inertia. Even if the center of mass is forward of the wheels, a trailer with a long load, and thus large moment of inertia, may be unstable.
A business route (occasionally city route) in the United States and Canada is a short special route connected to a parent numbered highway at its beginning, then routed through the central business district of a nearby city or town, and finally reconnecting with the same parent numbered highway again at its end.
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 andwas shockedwhen 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.
