I utilize these folks A LOT. They are my go-to movers. I claim my own organization and contract them month to month for customer activities. We simply completed an extremely confounded move with 5 unique destinations alongside makeshift stockpiling of more than 10,000 things. All managed without mistake. Extraordinary organization to work with.

We moved from a 2 room unit around 10 minutes to a 1 room loft on the second floor. The folks were prompt, didn't mess around and were staggeringly proficient. The move went easily and speedier than anticipated, cost was extraordinary and administration was well disposed. Will utilize again and prescribe to anybody moving soon.

What should have been a 2 hour job ended up being 3 1/2. One of the two movers that showed up was so hung over that he ended up puking/sleeping the second half of the move. This was the only day I could have moved (I took off work) so I ended up helping the other guy who worked his ass off. At the end of the day the guy tried to charge me full price but ended up working it down. Frustrated with the whole experience I called the company and let them know and they asked if I had any proof. Just the vomit on my sidewalk. Don't know if anything came of it.

Had an incredible involvement with this group. To begin with, I could audit the organization's strategies and after that timetable the pickup/conveyance day in around 10 minutes. Next, the group touched base on-time and they managed some unscheduled development work before our working with tolerance and an inspirational mentality. They had everything moved in a little more than 2 hours, with no scratches or other harm to the furniture. Along these lines, general, I that is about the best experience I've had with any move I've made.

I'm shocked that Main Movers doesn't have more Yelp surveys! These folks were extraordinary. They helped me and my beau move flats in the city and truly took the anxiety from us. They were quick, proficient, and careful. Normally I would be concerned to give movers a chance to move my wonderful cream hued love seat and coordinating seat - in trepidation of soil markings, and so on., however Main Movers dealt with my stuff as though it were their own. Much appreciated Main Movers and thank you Julian for attaching a young lady on the low expenses! I'll unquestionably prescribe you to anybody/everybody I know who needs a decent, strong moving organization.

"Six Day on the Road" was a trucker hit released in 1963 by country music singer Dave Dudley. Bill Malone is an author as well as a music historian. He notes the song "effectively captured both the boredom and the excitement, as well as the swaggering masculinity that often accompanied long distance trucking."

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).

“Country music scholar Bill Malone has gone so far as to say that trucking songs account for the largest component of work songs in the country music catalog. For a style of music that has, since its commercial inception in the 1920s, drawn attention to the coal man, the steel drivin’ man, the railroad worker, and the cowboy, this certainly speaks volumes about the cultural attraction of the trucker in the American popular consciousness.” — Shane Hamilton

This meant that the weekly max was limited to 60 hours over 7 days (non-daily drivers), or 70 hours over 8 days (daily drivers). With these rules in place, it allowed 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period, 9 hours of rest, with 3 hours for breaks within a 24-hour day.
