Decent occupation. The movers appeared on time and, except for a meal break, didn't stop until the employment was finished. Everything was taken care of pleasantly. It did keep running over the sum that was cited me, which is the reason I'm not giving them 5 stars. In this way, at last, the markdown coupon didn't have that quite a bit of an effect.

These folks were great! I was blowing a gasket about moving in light of the fact that I have had some terrible encounters with Sata Clara movers before, yet they truly cleared out my desires. They were super well disposed and expert. I had my questions when three thin folks touched base at my entryway, yet they moved my stuff like it was nothing (and I possess some overwhelming side tables and other clumsily molded furniture). I will never again utilize whatever other movers!

It has taken me some time to offer my review. I had such a traumatic moving experience with my previous landlord. My Pastors ended up helping me to offer support. The team was great and also really helped lift the experience. Initially, the team of packers came to my old unit to pack my things. I was nervous, at first, but, they were friendly, focused, and professional. It was a small team, but, they were amazing. Super organized. They knew exactly what to do. They used a variety of boxes, (wardrobe, large, small), and great packing material for everything. They packed a large one, almost 2 bedrooms, in only 3.5 hours. Alisa, Ruben, and Miro--thank you so much! Next, the crew came to load my belongings into the van. These are big, strong, guys, but, they were very kind and professional. They loaded the truck and unloaded it at a storage facility since my new apartment was not ready to move into yet. Although I had two of the largest storage units, they were still quite small and the team managed to fit my many items neatly and securely into both. Afterward, all the work was very neatly displayed on the order and the payment process was smooth. When unpacking my items, it is very clear that a lot of thought went into how to pack them so that they would be secure/unbroken. Ultimately, this was an excellent experience that I will consider for my next move. Thank you, Micah, Salvador, and Kevin. May God bless your whole team and family!

More or less this is the most exceedingly awful moving organization I have ever utilized. Roger cited me it would take 3.5 - 4 hours for my turn to be finished with 3 movers and a truck. He showed up the morning of the planned move with just 1 other mover (so 2 altogether) with no heads up and continue to assume control 7 hours to finish the move. This wound up costing path more than the first 3.5 - 4 hour cite. Moreover, amid the move our bed outline must be dismantled and reassembled and this was done so inadequately, I don't think the bed casing will survive another move. To finish it off, while the bed casing was being dismantled, Roger was assembling about the way that it was Ikea furniture the entire time which I was exceptionally amateurish. I would not utilized this organization again and unquestionably not prescribe them.

With everything taken into account great and reliable! I had a slight stir up with the affirmation - simply realize that on the off chance that you book on the web, the online affirmation in your affirmation. They call the day preceding the move. Thus I scratched off my turn for that day (supposing it wasn't affirmed), yet they were truly awesome about re-booking me and giving an evaluation. The telephone client backing was incredible, and they reached me upon the arrival of the move. John and Shox were marvelous! They went ahead time, and albeit doubting that we could do the move so rapidly came through at record quick time. They were exceptionally watchful with my furniture and extremely open. Would utilize once more.

I used this moving company once Ive got rave reviews from my mom and dad and aunty who just moved and they had an outstanding experience!!! They had to reschedule the move twice because construction company delayed the completion of the renovation project their house and it was not done. When they called the office they were so understanding and helpful. The day before my move Mike called me to remind about my appointment, I liked that! Driver also called me the next day. Movers arrived on time that day. And worked very careful and efficient. Movers packed the entire house and moved it in one day and did a very good job on packing all the fragile items. Even it was a local moving we still had to pack boxes and take all the beds apart. But packing and moving of kitchen cabinet content we still left for the guys to do. I have checked after the move there was no scratches or any furniture damage on any of the items and nothing was broken. I am very satisfied with my move and will hire these movers for my next relocation https://i.imgur.com/HWY2v5r.jpg https://i.imgur.com/h4x96yY.jpg

The city of San Jose is known as the capital of the Silicon Valley. Population wise, it is one of the top three largest cities in California. The city of San Jose is known for its high living costs. In the later part of the 20th century, it became known as the capital of the Silicon Valley because many of the largest tech companies at the time had their headquarters in the area. Since it is located near the bay, the climate for most of the year is warm and sunny. It is relatively landlocked, since it is surrounded by mountains on three of its four perimeters.

San Jose is home to some well known universities, such as San Jose State University, and California State University East Bay. Other schools in the nearby region include UC Berkeley, Stanford University, and San Francisco State University. San Jose is home to technology companies such as Adobe, eBay, and nearby Apple. Traffic in the area increased majorly due to the settling of these companies in the area in the late 1990s.

In July of 2015, Apple computers bought the rights to a 40 acre site in San Jose, at the cost of $139 million. The downtown area of San Jose holds some of Silicon Valley’s most attractive landmarks, such as the Tech Museum, and the San Jose Museum of Art. Downtown San Jose is located near the San Jose International Airport. Because of this, the buildings in Downtown San Jose have a height restriction. Public art is becoming a more and more enticing part of the city.

San Jose was one of the first cities to adopt a public art ordinance at around 2% of building projects. The crime rate in San Jose was formerly lower than many other California cities. This was until 2013, when crime rates in the city rose higher than the national average. The library system is unique to San Jose. Public transportation in the area is plentiful.

The number one hit on the Billboard chart in 1976 was quite controversial for the trucking industry. "Convoy," is a song about a group of reckless truck drivers bent on evading laws such as toll booths and speed traps. The song went on to inspire the film "Convoy", featuring defiant Kris Kristofferson screaming "piss on your law!" After the film's release, thousands of independent truck drivers went on strike. The participated in violent protests during the 1979 energy crisis. However, similar strikes had occurred during the 1973 energy crisis.

The trucking industry has made a large historical impact since the early 20th century. It has affected the U.S. both politically as well as economically since the notion has begun. Previous to the invention of automobiles, most freight was moved by train or horse-drawn carriage. Trucks were first exclusively used by the military during World War I.   After the war, construction of paved roads increased. As a result, trucking began to achieve significant popularity by the 1930's. Soon after trucking became subject to various government regulation, such as the hours of service. During the later 1950's and 1960's, trucking accelerated due to the construction of the Interstate Highway System. The Interstate Highway System is an extensive network of freeways linking major cities cross country.

Alongside the many different trailers provided are motorcycle trailers. They are designed to haul motorcycles behind an automobile or truck. Depending on size and capability, some trailer may be able to carry several motorcycles or perhaps just one. They specifically designed this trailer to meet the needs of motorcyclists. They carry motorcycles, have ramps, and include tie-downs. There may be a utility trailer adapted permanently or occasionally to haul one or more motorcycles.

"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."

During the latter part of the 20th century, we saw a decline of the trucking culture. Coinciding with this decline was a decline of the image of truck drivers, as they became negatively stigmatized. As a result of such negativity, it makes sense that truck drivers were frequently portrayed as the "bad guy(s)" in movies.

There are certain characteristics of a truck that makes it an "off-road truck". They generally standard, extra heavy-duty highway-legal trucks. Although legal, they have off-road features like front driving axle and special tires for applying it to tasks such as logging and construction. The purpose-built off-road vehicles are unconstrained by weighing limits, such as the Libherr T 282B mining truck.

The interstate moving industry in the United States maintains regulation by the FMCSA, which is part of the USDOT. With only a small staff (fewer than 20 people) available to patrol hundreds of moving companies, enforcement is difficult. As a result of such a small staff, there are in many cases, no regulations that qualify moving companies as 'reliable'. Without this guarantee, it is difficult to a consumer to make a choice. Although, moving companies can provide and often display a DOT license.

A semi-trailer is almost exactly what it sounds like, it is a trailer without a front axle. Proportionally, its weight is supported by two factors. The weight falls upon a road tractor or by a detachable front axle assembly, known as a dolly. Generally, a semi-trailer is equipped with legs, known in the industry as "landing gear". This means it can be lowered to support it when it is uncoupled. In the United States, a trailer may not exceed a length of 57 ft (17.37 m) on interstate highways. However, it is possible to link two smaller trailers together to reach a length of 63 ft (19.20 m).

A relatable reality t.v. show to the industry is the show Ice Road Truckers, which premiered season 3 on the History Channel in 2009. The show documents the lives of truck drivers working the scary Dalton Highway in Alaska. Following drivers as they compete to see which one of them can haul the most loads before the end of the season. It'll grab you with its mechanical problems that so many have experienced and as you watch them avoid the pitfalls of dangerous and icy roads!

“Writer-director James Mottern said he was influenced by nuanced, beloved movies of the 1970s such as "The Last Detail" and "Five Easy Pieces." Mottern said his female trucker character began with a woman he saw at a Southern California truck stop — a "beautiful woman, bleach blonde ... skin tanned to leather walked like a Teamster, blue eyes.” - Paul Brownfield

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) is an influential association as an advocate for transportation. Setting important standards, they are responsible for publishing specifications, test protocols, and guidelines. All which are used in highway design and construction throughout the United States. Despite its name, the association represents more than solely highways. Alongside highways, they focus on air, rail, water, and public transportation as well.

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 main purpose of the HOS regulation is to prevent accidents due to driver fatigue. To do this, the number of driving hours per day, as well as the number of driving hours per week, have been limited. Another measure to prevent fatigue is to keep drivers on a 21 to 24-hour schedule in order to maintain a natural sleep/wake cycle. Drivers must take a daily minimum period of rest and are allowed longer "weekend" rest periods. This is in hopes to combat cumulative fatigue effects that accrue on a weekly basis.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issues Hours of Service regulations. At the same time, they govern the working hours of anyone operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in the United States. Such regulations apply to truck drivers, commercial and city bus drivers, and school bus drivers who operate CMVs. With these rules in place, the number of daily and weekly hours spent driving and working is limited. The FMCSA regulates the minimum amount of time drivers must spend resting between driving shifts. In regards to intrastate commerce, the respective state's regulations apply.

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.

Although there are exceptions, city routes are interestingly most often found in the Midwestern area of the United States. Though they essentially serve the same purpose as business routes, they are different. They feature "CITY" signs as opposed to "BUSINESS" signs above or below route shields. Many of these city routes are becoming irrelevant for today's transportation. Due to this, they are being eliminated in favor of the business route designation.

The concept of a bypass is a simple one. It is a road or highway that purposely avoids or "bypasses" a built-up area, town, or village. Bypasses were created with the intent to let through traffic flow without having to get stuck in local traffic. In general they are supposed to reduce congestion in a built-up area. By doing so, road safety will greatly improve.   A bypass designated for trucks traveling a long distance, either commercial or otherwise, is called a truck route.

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".
