Value ***WARNING*** this company is a fraud! It has been 24 days (and counting) since this company took my belongings!! They will NOT return calls or emails after your stuff are picked up. I have filed a complaint with the BBB, FMCSA and will pursue legal actions.

I dont write reviews, but this one was needed. I would give zero stars if possible. To start, we were quoted 4000 and once the items were loaded we were told 8000. If we said no and unload we would have lost our 2000 dollar deposit.The entire experience with this company has been terrible. Our first date of delivery was December 30th. In the contract they say they can deliver within 21 days of that date for any reason. We lived in an empty house for 18 days till Jan 17th. Communication with office workers was terrible. Asking them questions was terrible, and trying to figure out where our stuff was located or could be delivered seemed like we were bothering them. When we finally got a delivery date and time we were warned by the company to take a picture of the check and send it to the office, and if the driver tried to up charge us or ask for cash call the office. I said "It sounds like youre worried about this guy stealing your money" Silence on the other end. The driver called my wife the day of delivery and said that he wasnt going to come that day and would be there the next day, my wife tried to get him to come that day and explained we had been sleeping on air matresses for a month his reply? "One more night wont kill you". That same night the office called to ask how the delivery went. They had no idea the driver didnt complete it. The communication is so poor. DELIVERY DAY. The first thing you must do is give them a check and sign the paper you later find out that is says you received all your items, how could you know that since everything is on the truck? This is how they get you, and why the things we are missing we will never get. Including all of out wedding photos and photo albums that are unreplacable. They dont care, you signed the paper. WE STILL HAVE 7-10 BOXES MISSING The driver had picked two guys up from home depot and was very rude to them. He also told them to not accept a cash tip and to only let him get the money. (I spoke with the two men after and tipped them individually.) After they had unloaded the items which I helped them do, the driver told me that they normally charge 185 to set up and move the items into the rooms, but he would waive it if I gave him a BIG CASH TIP. I said no way, put the stuff together and leave. Now for the worst parts. Once we had unpacked we noticed we had a box of large paintings that are not ours. I called the office and let them know and sent pictures of the items. WE STILL HAVE THEM! I want to send them to the owner but dont know who. My wife called the office to ask and they said "oh someone did call about missing paintings, but I lost the postit i wrote the customers name on" Sweet. That is the same fate of our missing items. I have called and email the office many times, and have recieved maybe 2-3 calls back in total in the experience. This company isnt in the buisiness of service, they want to get your money with the least possible output of energy in return.

I was given a quote of $1587.00 for a move across country. I spoke with Tamar and she guaranteed the price was locked and that I need not to worry because they are A+ ratings on BBB. Therefore, I made a deposit of $200.00. I was also told that it would take 7-14 days to get to Ny and make sure that someone is there to receive it. I stated that someone is there to receive it. I told Tamar all things that I had in my apartment but she put what she felt on the inventory. The guys came to move my stuff and the Russian mover charged me twice the amount from the quote, almost three thousand of dollars. He even charged me for long haul of $75.00 when my apartment is less than 75 feet from the truck. The driver even charged to pack my sofa, coffee table and TV, when I was told by Tami that the guys will do this and it is in the quote. I asked him, how is this possible, he stated that I have double the space. Therefore, I went to the truck and I stated that he padded the truck front. He did not respond. I told him to unload my truck and He refused to unload. He stated that I must sign the paper and talk to customer service. I called Customer service that day but no one answered and I texted Tamar but no answered. The next day, I was able to get a hold of Tamar and she stated that she is going to rectify the problem and she is going to remeasured the size. She also stated that she is going to call me the next day. I never received a call from her. I called and texted her, and older man with a russian thick accent said she left for the day and she will call me back tomorrow. Tamar never did call and I told the Russian guy my problem and he stated I will give you a call by the end of business day but no call. This went on for three to four weeks. No returns the call and no one returns text messages. On march 22,2019, I received a called from the driver,Ben, that he wants to deliver my stuff on sunday and I stated that I waiting on the office to call me back in regards to price. He stated ok. He called the next day stating that he is going to deliver on Monday and I also stated that I waiting for the office to rectify the price. He stated ok, Monday he will deliver. The next day at 07:25, the same driver called and stated that he will be there in five hours to deliver my stuff. He also stated that make sure that there are no stairs to go up to dleiver my stuff, make sure that an 18 wheeler truck can pass then he stated that you have the full amount of money is cash. I stated that I am waiting for a call from the office and I only received an email of a credit of $250.00 and this is not what I signed up for. He stated then I can sue and good luck to me in doing so. So, I stated that I will sue because I noticed that a lot of former customers had the same issues with this company. He never came with stuff. They have my stuff hostage. I called Tamar, on 03/25/19, she told me that she can not talk to me because I said I was going to sue.

Get as far away from this company as you can. Consistently lie. Double charge of estimate. Came 5 days late for pickup, took 2 months to ship to Hawaii. Did not honor contract on several points including re-assembling furniture they had knocked down. Sent one man to unload household of furniture. Stole half of the tools we had shipped. They could never give us a location of our shipment, lied about arrival date multiple times. Weekend contact person was surly, could care less about what he was doing. Never again. Hate to even give them one star, that is as low as I can rate.

We had a very smooth moving with Ben and his colleagues. The moving was scheduled at 2pm and they came on time. They carefully wrapped the furniture and did extra job to make sure our stuff was well protected. I noticed that Ben even took off the light bulbs from each of the floor lamps and stored them properly which shows that they are really willing to go extra miles in order to provide good service. My stuff was in good hands. After going through nightmares with the other moving companies I am happy that we found them.

I am technically not even giving them 1 star. DO NOT use this company. Horribly rude, there drivers sexually harassed my teenage daughter, and then showed up with our stuff and tried to charge us a much higher rate than quoted in addition to our most valuable item on the truck which was a big flat screen TV missing. They would not return our calls or emails and we never got our tv back. Horrible company that takes pride in scamming people.

We were moving to live close to our family. United Transportation Moving & Storage was referred to me by my brother in law. I called them and easily got a reasonable quote. The movers arrived early and started packing up my belongings. They loaded everything onto the truck very carefully. The delivery was made on time. Nothing broke or got damaged on the way. In the end, I realized that this move was just too easy. I have read reviews where people said how easy their move was. I never thought I would experience one of those.

Paying for professional, organized people is worth every penny and United Transportation Moving & Storage in the one. They could not have been more kind, courteous, and willing to work. They confirmed all details ahead of time both on phone and by email. The team showed up right on time and started doing their job. The guys knew the best way to load and unload things and were overly careful with all of my belongings. They really knew how to use their time in the best way. They really helped me and I even was able to save some money. I must say great deal!

The guys from United Transportation Moving & Storage did a great job during our last long distance move. Everything went well from my initial contact to the follow up after the move. The moving crew of 3 young men arrived on time, completed their tasks on time with a good working pace and provided clear instructions to me when needed. Everything proceeded as promised from the beginning till the end. Thanks for the hassle free move guys; I will definitely recommend them to all!

United Transportation Moving & Storage have many tricks up their sleeves. And I mean good ones! They know how to take anything out from an apartment no matter how big it is. They will use the backdoor, or the window or the balcony. Any way possible! They will not give up on you. And plus, they will not damage a single thing. Highly recommended! Oh one more thing, they have the best rates in this business. Cheers!

I moved from CA to NV, and the United Transportation Moving and Storage really helped me stress less about moving. When we were about to move, we became nervous about moving. The United Transportation Moving and Storage company provided excellent service and quality work. We were very impressed with the efficiency of the company. It was a very fast move, and we would definitely hire them again. We highly recommend their services to anyone.

Absolutely awesome to deal with! Very professional crew and did not touch a single wall! I am very pleased with the professionalism and efficiency of this moving company. Took great care with my belongings, were polite and friendly I was really pleased with the entire experience and would recommend United Transportation Moving and use them again myself as well. By the way the delivery was made on time and when I checked the inventory, there was not a single damage.

They impressed me all the way. United Transportation Moving did a terrific job with my move. No more doing a move by myself. I will always hire this moving company. Their sales rep told me not to worry and told me he will take care of everything. And that is exactly what he did. He sent over a foreman and 3 helpers to help me with me move. They were efficient, caring and took the job very seriously. They really did a good job. Every single one of my belongings were safely delivered and without a scratch. I am very thankful!

Moving business is very competitive. Most moving companies are really improving their games in order to keep up. I recently hired United Transportation Moving to handle my relocation and I was absolutely surprised seeing how efficient and professional these guys are! From their timing to their skills, everything was top notch. It took the movers such a small time to finish loading everything from my 4 bedroom house. Not even a glass was delivered broken! The fierce competition also meant a low quote for me. It really is a movers market these days!

United Transportation is a moving company with very high standards. I had hint about their quality when I first called them and the man on the phone sounded so experienced. He called me back with an amazing quote. Everything went smoothly from there on. The movers were all very enthusiastic and efficient. They finished the job so fast without taking any breaks. Each of my valuables was moved without even a slight scratch on them. I can blindly rely on this amazing moving company.

I am totally broken hearted. You moved us through Long Distance Movers from Ogden, Utah to Debary Florida You lost some very important stuff of mine. somewhere someone has my belongings. I had Doterra iols, A treasure chest, healing stones, kitchen stuff, bathroom stuff, a Christmas village, and you lost the side rails to our bed. We had to buy a new bed as they did not sell replacement parts. I had a hand made box with my name on it made by my daughter that is priceless to me. I cannot believe that this company is in business. I would give my right arm to have my stuff back that I am sure you could care less about. What did come came broken, my desk, the chain guard on my bike, A hole punched in the headboard, damage to 2 dressers, if I could add pictures I would. I am looking into filing a claim, calling the BBB and the attorney General. I believed what I was told that you cared, that my stuff would be handled with care. I WILL NOT RECOMEND YOU TO ANYONE. I would love for you to find all the stops the trucker made and send me it back at your cost since you lost it.

Overall I think this moving company did a great job with my move. Nothing was damaged and the whole arrangement was done under 2 hours. Granted I did not have a lot of items to move, they did not take their time.ย  Their demeanor was professional the whole time. I didn't have any doubts before and after about their service. Conversation and paperwork all went smoothly.ย  I am giving 5 stars for good move and no problems.

Moving Authority are an absolute lifesaver! My girlfriend and I needed to pack up house in a hurry, with both of us simultaneously landing exciting new work opportunities. While this was an exciting time, negotiating new terms and brushing up on skills, we also had to pack up our entire lives in less than a month. We both own a bunch of precious heirlooms, as well, adding to the stress. Moving Authority were fast, thorough, detailed, and very, very careful with our belongings! They were also incredibly hard working and easy-going. They made moving into our new home entirely painless and stress free! Highly recommended!

My experience with the moving company was a great one and I'd definitely go with them again if I ever have to move again. The moving crew handled my things with care and the customer service agent I initially contacted was very reassuring that the move would be smooth and easy. It didn't take too long to move and it didn't break the bank either. All in all, I made the right choice going with them.

I have really been impressed by the level of service and professionalism that I have encountered with them since my first call. They did do a nice job of packing up the last of my large items that I was unable to do alone. They were on time, kept to schedule, and stayed on budget! The quote they gave me was more than reasonable.

WORSE MOST DISHONEST COMPANY EVER DEALT WITH!!!! DO NOT USE!! Response to b_ll Sh__ customer service. John the general supervisor at united transportation moving and storage, is let's be clear. You definatly declined to allow an Addendum to be added to form stating that if payment wasn't not made by your company I had protection. Since you have more than one review from an online source stating failure to pay settlements or told people bankruptcy was filed with your CEO/owner) so was it was necessary to have an agreement that would guarantee payment. He is a crook and so is your company. I told you you shouldn't of messed with me.

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).

In the 20th century, the 1940 film "They Drive by Night" co-starred Humphrey Bogart. He plays an independent driver struggling to become financially stable and economically independent. This is all set during the times of the Great Depression. Yet another film was released in 1941, called "The Gang's All Here". It is a story of a trucking company that's been targeted by saboteurs.

The Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways is most commonly known as the Interstate Highway System, Interstate Freeway System, Interstate System, or simply the Interstate. It is a network of controlled-access highways that forms a part of the National Highway System of the United States. Named after President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who endorsed its formation, the idea was to have portable moving and storage. Construction was authorized by the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956. The original portion was completed 35 years later, although some urban routes were canceled and never built. The network has since been extended and, as of 2013, it had a total length of 47,856 miles (77,017 km), making it the world's second longest after China's. As of 2013, about one-quarter of all vehicle miles driven in the country use the Interstate system. In 2006, the cost of construction had been estimated at about $425 billion (equivalent to $511 billion in 2015).

The USDOT (USDOT or DOT) is considered a federal Cabinet department within the U.S. government. Clearly, this department concerns itself with all aspects of transportation with safety as a focal point. The DOT was officially established by an act of Congress on October 15, 1966, beginning its operation on April 1, 1967. Superior to the DOT, the United States Secretary of Transportation governs the department. The mission of the DOT is to "Serve the United States by ensuring a fast, safe, efficient, accessible, and convenient transportation system that meets our vital national interests and enhances the quality of life for the American people, today and into the future." Essentially this states how important it is to improve all types of transportation as a way to enhance both safety and life in general etc. It is important to note that the DOT is not in place to hurt businesses, but to improve our "vital national interests" and our "quality of life". The transportation networks are in definite need of such fundamental attention. Federal departments such as the USDOT are key to this industry by creating and enforcing regulations with intentions to increase the efficiency and safety of transportation. 

The American Association of State Highway Officials (AASHO) was organized and founded on December 12, 1914. On November 13, 1973, the name was altered to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials. This slight change in name reflects a broadened scope of attention towards all modes of transportation. Despite the implications of the name change, most of the activities it is involved in still gravitate towards highways.

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 he was manipulated into 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".

Ultra light trucks are very easy to spot or acknowledge if you are paying attention. They are often produced variously such as golf cars, for instance, it has internal combustion or a battery electric drive. They usually for off-highway use on estates, golf courses, parks, in stores, or even someone in an electric wheelchair. While clearly not suitable for highway usage, some variations may be licensed as slow speed vehicles. The catch is that they may on operate on streets, usually a body variation of a neighborhood electric vehicle. A few manufacturers produce specialized chassis for this type of vehicle. Meanwhile, Zap Motors markets a version of the xebra electric tricycle. Which, believe it or not, is able to attain a general license in the United States as a motorcycle.

With the ending of World War I, several developments were made to enhance trucks. Such an example would be by putting pneumatic tires replaced the previously common full rubber versions. These advancements continued, including electric starters, power brakes, 4, 6, and 8 cylinder engines. Closed cabs and electric lighting followed. The modern semi-trailer truck also debuted. Additionally, touring car builders such as Ford and Renault entered the heavy truck market.
