These guys were local when I did my google search, and they ANSWERED the phone when I had called for a rate. My boss and I were ecstatic for the helpful staff that relocated us here in Los Angeles, CA. Hope you like the tip boys, you earned it! You guys definitely broke a sweat today.

England Van lines was one of the best moving companies I have ever used. It makes me sad to see that others did not have positive experiences with this company, I don't really see how its possible to not be pleased with their services. Not only are England Van Lines very reasonably priced, but they also made my move one to remember. I could not have been happier with the expert manner in which they packed and transported my things. I would definitely use them in the future.

This was the worst moving experience of my life. And I have moved by myself into a 4 story walk-up in the middle of DC summer, fell down a slight of stairs and got a mild concussion.

England Van lines are dishonest, thieves and extortionists who straight up lie to get a job, avoid any communication and then break all your stuff anyway.

Here is the story of our move with England Van Lines:
- 5/2016: rep comes to our home, sees all of our stuff, gives us what he says is "a price, not an estimate because we are a 5-star company and that's what we do". Guarantees our pick up date and drop off date within a 5 day window.
- 6/20/16: get call saying they will actually be arriving 3 days before the agreed upon pick up date because that's the only time they can come.
- 6/26/16: movers arrive. Suddenly decide that it will cost TWICE AS MUCH to move our stuff. Apparently were not informed we'd asked for packing as part of the move. Takes them SIX HOURS to load the van because the did not have enough people for the job.
- 7/15/16: the day we were "guaranteed" our stuff would arrive. Have not heard from them at all. Call multiple times, send emails. No response.
-7/17/16: after calling every 5 minutes for an hour someone answers the phone!!!! They have no idea when our stuff will be shipped. It is still in the warehouse. They inform us that they have 21 BUSINESS days despite the verbal contract we were given (of 5 day window) or the actual contract we signed which says nothing about business days
-7/20/16: still have not heard anything. Call 10 times. Leave voicemails. Speak to someone in sales who promises, promises someone from dispatch will call us back. No call back.
- 7/23/16: have still not heard anything from dispatch despite several calls and voicemails
- 7/29/16: after 5 calls that day get ahold of someone in dispatch. No trucks will be heading north in the next week apparently. I ask what can we do to get out stuff here in the next week. "Oh you could expedite the shipping for $4,000 more dollars". This is clear extortion but we have no choice. You can only sleep on an air mattress of so long.
-8/2/16: Truck arrives!!!! They give us about 4 hours warning, no the promised 24 but at least they come. Unfortunately it is full of broken things. Our mirror bent into two and shattered, TV stand scratched, dresser drawers off their hinges, etc. BTW the drivers mentioned they had made several other stops on the way north so clearly there was a truck that was heading our way but they waited until we would pay extra.

Moral of the story: we ended up paying nearly 3 times as much as the initial estimator promised and it took 5 times as long to come as we were promised. And our stuff was damaged and few things missing at the end of it....


Two of their representatives (Matt and David) came by our house and walked through every room and took down what was going to be moved. Based on their walk through we received a price. Once they left we went over the list and realized that they did not put the refrigerator on their list, so we called them back and asked them to add it.They said it would be no problem and they would not add anything to the price. They kept repeating how good their customer service was and how well they would take care of our furniture. On the day of the move they arrive and do another walkthrough. After going through the house, they point out that the refrigerator is not on the list and that our tables have glass tops and that our nightstands have granite tops. Therefore , they would have to up the price by 25%. We pointed out that they saw the furniture during the walk through and were well aware that we had glass tops, etc. They didn't care. In the end they just left and left us hanging. After calling their company main office they said they couldn't do anything and if we wanted to move we would have to pay the extra money. I said I would not do that, since that is extortion. I have no way of finding another mover on the same day and anybody who has moved knows how many parts have to come together during a successful move. These people will hold you hostage to extort money from you. DO NOT USE THEM!

I recently hired England Van Lines to move my house. They were without a doubt one of the best decisions I have made. They were VERY reasonable in price, they were on time and they cared for every item as if it was their own. I called them on short notice and the day after a holiday and they were very accommodating. I would recommend them to everyone I know.

QuestionIn the United States, the term 'full trailer'is usedfor a freight trailer supported by front and rear axles and pulled by a drawbar. This term isslightlydifferent in Europe, where a full traileris knownas an A-frame drawbar trail. A full trailer is 96 or 102 in (2.4 or 2.6 m) wide and 35 or 40 ft (11 or 12 m) long.


In the United States, commercial truck classificationis fixed byeach vehicle's gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). There are 8 commercial truck classes, ranging between 1 and 8.Trucks are also classified in a more broad way by the DOT's Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The FHWA groups them together, determining classes 1-3 as light duty, 4-6 as medium duty, and 7-8 as heavy duty.The United States Environmental Protection Agency has its own separate system of emission classifications for commercial trucks.Similarly, the United States Census Bureau had assigned classifications of its own in its now-discontinued Vehicle Inventory and Use Survey (TIUS,formerlyknown as the Truck Inventory and Use Survey).


In 1938, the now-eliminated Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) enforced the first Hours of Service (HOS) rules. Drivers became limited to 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period.At this time, work included loading, unloading, driving, handling freight, preparing reports, preparing vehicles for service, or performing any other duty in relation to the transportation of passengers or property.
The ICC intended for the 3-hour difference between 12 hours of work and 15 hours on-duty tobe usedfor meals and rest breaks.This meant that the weekly maxwas limitedto 60 hours over 7 days (non-dailydrivers), 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.

QuestionDOT officers of each state are generally in charge of the enforcement of the Hours of Service (HOS). These are sometimes checked when CMVs pass through weigh stations. Drivers found to be in violation of the HOS canbe forcedto stop driving for a certain period of time. This, in turn, maynegativelyaffect the motor carrier's safety rating. Requests to change the HOS are a source of debate. Unfortunately, many surveysindicatedriversroutinelyget away with violating the HOS.Such facts have started yet another debate on whether motor carriers shouldbe requiredto us EOBRs in their vehicles.Relying on paper-based log books does not always seem to enforce the HOS law put in place for the safety of everyone.

QuestionUltra light trucks are very easy to spot or acknowledge if you are paying attention.They are often producedvariouslysuch 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.Whileclearlynot suitable for highway usage, some variations maybe licensedas 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 thexebraelectric tricycle. Which, believe it or not, is able toattaina general license in the United States as a motorcycle.
