While we have incurred over $3,000.00 in damages, they will not only not pay for furniture repair but will not pay the claim amount of $300.00. Do not use this company for storage or out of state. So many boxes did not arrive, so much broken and lost.

We used Popeye Moving & Storage LLC and it was the best decision we made during our move! Their team was totally professional and quick on their feet when it came to problem solving- wide couch, narrow door situation. Also, it was so convenient that they brought wardrobe boxes for us to borrow, made things so easy. The hourly rate is pretty good too! We'll definitely use them again.

I can't believe there are any good reviews on this company, those must be fake. First my deposit was never refunded to me when we canceled one local move, so we decided to have them pack the moving truck for the house that passed escrow. They ripped the doors of my refrigerator forcing it through the screen door, which they also broke off. This was how they began, but my husband did not inform me of any of these things, if he had, i would have fired them without pay right there. Especially since they went on to break my washer, dryer, computer chairs, monitors, pool table, china set, my antique dining room table i inhereted from my family, I have no clue how they extensively tweaked the headboard to my bed set.. This is only the most expensive of the damages it did not end at all. I have no furniture that is not damaged. They took apart everything to the smallest pieces as well. I have a few random screws, but no clue what they go to. This is the worse experience of my life. If you do not want every thing you own destroyed than call someone, anyone else. Ohhh they charged us $100 for a broken box wrapped around the slate of my pool table that they proceeded to shatter anyway.

All I truly needed to move was my studio loft from Atlanta to Gilbert AZ.. Doing a reversal home. I just had a room set and a few boxes and Presto was sensibly estimated, I saw some different costs that were close yet the organizations didnt appear to be excessively solid.

The worst possible storage and moving company. Canceled my pickup the night before. No apologies. No suggestions. No help. Did not even feel bad. Use anybody but these guys or you will surely regret it.

I recently had to pack up and move from San Francisco to Denver for a new job opportunity. I looked for a moving company on Yelp and found Air1moving. From the first call I had a great experience with these guys. They were fair in their pricing, respectful, and punctual. They made the experience pleasant and easy. I recommend hiring them.

DON'T USE THIS COMPANY! In 2019 this company moved me and stored my things in their so-called warehouse overnight, which I paid $120 plus for, because they moved me out one day and was supposed to move me in the next day - that's how we scheduled it. One of my large, specially marked boxes with over $7000 of brand new, never worn designer label clothes was stolen from their truck overnight in their locked warehouse. I know damn well this was an inside job and my things were stolen by one of their workers and when I called the owner, Mike, multiple times to complain and ask him to investigate the theft, he was highly dismissive of me telling me my box "probably got taken to the dump site!" He claimed they didn't even have a camera system to monitor the truck where consumer's things are stored. I intend to pursue this matter legally!

Was charged 55+% above estimate. Originally charged 200% of original estimate, then acted like I should be great full for the reduction made after contacting them. Poor business practice. Would not use them again

Did miss a couple of items left behind in a closet. Could have done a better job of covering floors - especially between elevator and apartment (which was required). Fair to OK in flooring coverage in apartment but could have been better coverage in carpeted rooms.

Love these folks!! Have utilized them twice for our office and they are extremely conscious of our structures rules. They are responsive to our solicitations and have an incredible can-do state of mind! I profoundly suggest them for home and business moving requirements!

Please do not use this company. They were my worst nightmare. I hired Pure Moving Systems because I thought I was hiring another legitimate moving company whose name they have recently taken. Three scary looking guys showed up, I was afraid and told my daughter to hide in her room and be ready to call 911. They raised the price on a binding quote, after loading all my things into their U-haul. I shipped tax returns and the next day my identity was stolen by someone 13 miles from their office (I lived 600 miles away). They demanded cash for everything. Half of my stuff was missing, and they broke all of my lamps, my vacuum and my Pilates Reformer, which they left in a pile in my garage. I asked if they were planning to dump it and they said that would cost extra. Pure Moving Systems charged nearly twice as much as was quoted (in a binding quote). They were absolutely abusive the whole way through. They refused to talk to the police about the identity theft, and hung up on him and then when he called back, they transferred him to an extension that just rang and rang. So in summary, Pure Moving Systems broke or "lost" half of my stuff, charged me double and abused me, the police, my banker and my lawyer along the way. Please save yourself the major stress and financial loss and do not use Pure Moving Systems. The story is much longer but I am so tired of talking about it, I just want to move on but I also don't want anyone else to go through the pain of working with Pure Moving Systems. By the way, they used to be Apple Van Lines, so you can see more negative reviews by Googling that company if you are not convinced by these reviews for Pure Moving Systems.

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. 

In 1999, The Simpsons episode Maximum Homerdrive aired. It featured Homer and Bart making a delivery for a truck driver named Red after he unexpectedly dies of 'food poisoning'.

Invented in 1890, the diesel engine was not an invention that became well known in popular culture. It was not until the 1930's for the United States to express further interest for diesel engines to be accepted. Gasoline engines were still in use on heavy trucks in the 1970's, while in Europe they had been entirely replaced two decades earlier.

In some states, a business route is designated by adding the letter "B" after the number instead of placing a "Business" sign above it. For example, Arkansas signs US business route 71 as "US 71B". On some route shields and road signs, the word "business" is shortened to just "BUS". This abbreviation is rare and usually avoided to prevent confusion with bus routes.

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!

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 to be used for meals and rest breaks. 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.

The Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula is a mathematical formula used in the United States to determine the appropriate gross weight for a long distance moving vehicle, based on the axle number and spacing. Enforced by the Department of Transportation upon long-haul truck drivers, it is used as a means of preventing heavy vehicles from damaging roads and bridges. This is especially in particular to the total weight of a loaded truck, whether being used for commercial moving services or for long distance moving services in general.   According to the Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula, the total weight of a loaded truck (tractor and trailer, 5-axle rig) cannot exceed 80,000 lbs in the United States. Under ordinary circumstances, long-haul equipment trucks will weight about 15,000 kg (33,069 lbs). This leaves about 20,000 kg (44,092 lbs) of freight capacity. Likewise, a load is limited to the space available in the trailer, normally with dimensions of 48 ft (14.63 m) or 53 ft (16.15 m) long, 2.6 m (102.4 in) wide, 2.7 m (8 ft 10.3 in) high and 13 ft 6 in or 4.11 m high.

The basics of all trucks are not difficult, as they share common construction. They are generally made of chassis, a cab, an area for placing cargo or equipment, axles, suspension, road wheels, and engine and a drive train. Pneumatic, hydraulic, water, and electrical systems may also be present. Many also tow one or more trailers or semi-trailers, which also vary in multiple ways but are similar as well.

In 1986 Stephen King released horror film "Maximum Overdrive", a campy kind of story. It is really about trucks that become animated due to radiation emanating from a passing comet. Oddly enough, the trucks force humans to pump their diesel fuel. Their leader is portrayed as resembling Spider-Man's antagonist Green Goblin.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is a division of the USDOT specializing in highway transportation. The agency's major influential activities are generally separated into two different "programs". The first is the Federal-aid Highway Program. This provides financial aid to support the construction, maintenance, and operation of the U.S. highway network. The second program, the Federal Lands Highway Program, shares a similar name with different intentions. The purpose of this program is to improve transportation involving Federal and Tribal lands. They also focus on preserving "national treasures" for the historic and beatific enjoyment for all.

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".

The 1950's were quite different than the years to come. They were more likely to be considered "Knights of the Road", if you will, for helping stranded travelers. In these times truck drivers were envied and were viewed as an opposition to the book "The Organization Man". Bestseller in 1956, author William H. Whyte's novel describes "the man in the gray flannel suit", who sat in an office every day. He's describing a typical office style job that is very structured with managers watching over everyone. Truck drivers represented the opposite of all these concepts. Popular trucking songs glorified the life of drivers as independent "wanderers". Yet, there were attempts to bring back the factory style efficiency, such as using tachnographs. Although most attempts resulted in little success. Drivers routinely sabotaged and discovered new ways to falsify the machine's records.

In 1984 the animated TV series The Transformers told the story of a group of extraterrestrial humanoid robots. However, it just so happens that they disguise themselves as automobiles. Their leader of the Autobots clan, Optimus Prime, is depicted as an awesome semi-truck.

The year of 1977 marked the release of the infamous Smokey and the Bandit. It went on to be the third highest grossing film that year, following tough competitors like Star Wars and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Burt Reynolds plays the protagonist, or "The Bandit", who escorts "The Snowman" in order to deliver bootleg beer. Reynolds once stated he envisioned trucking as a "hedonistic joyride entirely devoid from economic reality"   Another action film in 1977 also focused on truck drivers, as was the trend it seems. Breaker! Breaker! starring infamous Chuck Norris also focused on truck drivers. They were also displaying movie posters with the catch phrase "... he's got a CB radio and a hundred friends who just might get mad!"

The rise of technological development gave rise to the modern trucking industry. There a few factors supporting this spike in the industry such as the advent of the gas-powered internal combustion engine. Improvement in transmissions is yet another source, just like the move away from chain drives to gear drives. And of course the development of the tractor/semi-trailer combination.   The first state weight limits for trucks were determined and put in place in 1913. Only four states limited truck weights, from a low of 18,000 pounds (8,200 kg) in Maine to a high of 28,000 pounds (13,000 kg) in Massachusetts. The intention of these laws was to protect the earth and gravel-surfaced roads. In this case, particular damages due to the iron and solid rubber wheels of early trucks. By 1914 there were almost 100,000 trucks on America's roads. As a result of solid tires, poor rural roads, and a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour (24km/h) continued to limit the use of these trucks to mostly urban areas.

The decade of the 70's in the United States was a memorable one, especially for the notion of truck driving. This seemed to dramatically increase popularity among trucker culture. Throughout this era, and even in today's society, truck drivers are romanticized as modern-day cowboys and outlaws. These stereotypes were due to their use of Citizens Band (CB) radios to swap information with other drivers. Information regarding the locations of police officers and transportation authorities. The general public took an interest in the truckers 'way of life' as well. Both drivers and the public took interest in plaid shirts, trucker hats, CB radios, and CB slang.

Unfortunately for the trucking industry, their image began to crumble during the latter part of the 20th century. As a result, their reputation suffered. More recently truckers have been portrayed as chauvinists or even worse, serial killers. The portrayals of semi-trailer trucks have focused on stories of the trucks becoming self-aware. Generally, this is with some extraterrestrial help.

By the time 2006 came, there were over 26 million trucks on the United States roads, each hauling over 10 billion short tons of freight (9.1 billion long tons). This was representing almost 70% of the total volume of freight. When, as a driver or an automobile drivers, most automobile drivers are largely unfamiliar with large trucks. As as a result of these unaware truck drivers and their massive 18-wheeler's numerous blind spots. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has determined that 70% of fatal automobile/tractor trailer accident happen for a reason. That being the result of "unsafe actions of automobile drivers". People, as well as drivers, need to realize the dangers of such large trucks and pay more attention. Likewise for truck drivers as well.

Driver's licensing has coincided throughout the European Union in order to for the complex rules to all member states. Driving a vehicle weighing more than 7.5 tons (16,535 lb) for commercial purposes requires a certain license. This specialist licence type varies depending on the use of the vehicle and number of seat. Licences first acquired after 1997, the weight was reduced to 3,500 kilograms (7,716 lb), not including trailers.

Tracing the origins of particular words can be quite different with so many words in the English Dictionary. Some say the word "truck" might have come from a back-formation of "truckle", meaning "small wheel" or "pulley". In turn, both sources emanate from the Greek trokhos (τροχός), meaning "wheel", from trekhein (τρέχειν, "to run").
