Had a great move by Flying Eagle from Del Mar to San Jose . Inquired with Roman via Yelp then reached out directly. He was super helpful and made me feel at ease as this was the first time I have used movers and moving long distance. Roman sent me a very competitive bid to move, significantly less than his competitors but not the cheapest option. I appreciated that his bid was "flat rate" this may be on a case by case basis but I wasn't sure how many boxes I would have, just general idea (of course I was 10-15 boxes short) and the big items + it was a inclusive bid so I did not pay hourly/ tolls/ gas etc. Everything went very smooth from initial contact, I paid deposit online and then reached out with a few questions prior to move date. Morning of guys showed up right on time and got my wardrobe (they handle boxing hangers etc) 30 boxes + furniture packed and loaded in about 2.5 hours. 8.5 hours later we were all in San Jose and they were unloading everything just as fast (shout out to the parallel parking job that they did in a huge truck). My only complaint is they brought up tipping multiple times, I was told the day before when I talked to Roman, read it on my confirmation email and the mover awkwardly told me what was standard and the $$ amount- I'm all for a tip when deserved, and these guys deserved every bit of it, but don't like to feel obligated to a % or $. None the less I am here, my stuff is here in perfect condition and I did little to no work, so I am happy. Thanks Roman and Flying Eagle Moving!!!

The guys who came to move we were great. Fun personalities, helpful and kind. That's about all the good I can say about this experience. They were horrible at loading the truck. There was some much wasted space. It was a slow process and should have been completed in a much shorter time period. It took my family of 4, 3 hours to move 2 years ago and it should have taken 2 hours for 3 guys to move out/ in. Everything was packed and ready for them to load. After 5 hours I asked they to stop and leave. I was done paying by they hour. What irritated me the most was i had to rent a U haul to get everything out. . I spoke to the owner and I was refunded part of my charge. He was very nice and listened to my comments and understood my frustration.

So much damage it's unbelievable. The movers were exhausted and said it was their 3rd move. My leather couch is shredded on both ends. My dining table and Ashley bedroom set has dents, paint from for jams, and scrapes all over it. My bed is badly torn. The movers said they didn't have the proper equipment to move it. Calling the store they just said to email the pics which I did and to contact a hotline to fix my things. The movers said my things were already damaged like that. Never use this company! I'm going to put reviews everywhere and contact BBB. I've used movers several times and NEVER have I had my things destroyed like this!

Most exceedingly awful. Organization. EVER. Keep away from THIS COMPANY At all costs. My experience was so awful I will be reaching the Better Business Bureau. They charged me 4 times my evaluation and that was the minimum of my issues. They lied about the conveyance date TWICE, which made me miss two days of work, and afterward got frightful with me when I requested a rebate taking into account their deception that made me miss two entire days of pay. In the long run they just essentially overlooked my telephone calls and various messages. Such a great amount for client administration I presume. At the point when my stuff was at long last conveyed, I needed to tip $300 all together for the movers to put the furniture where I needed. The movers were additionally discourteous and contemptuous on top of everything, and one of them possessed an aroma similar to death and left a stink that was mind-boggling in my new home.

I am so awed by WCS Trucking! From my first telephone call, through the genuine move, and afterward the subsequent telephone call, the entire experience was the most wonderful it could have been. I expected to move with 3 days notice. They put me on the calendar and sent me two magnificent men (Desmond and Revere) to make my turn as easy as could be expected under the circumstances. These two mean were proficient, kind and a portion of the most diligent folks I've ever seen. Much thanks to you!

Avoid this horrible company! I called to get a quote for a move, and asked for a grand total price on what I'd pay. I was given the quote, and read it back to the guy to confirm. I then called other companies for quotes, and called Sigavan back to schedule my move later in the day. I again read the quote back to the guy, and confirmed with him that this was my grand total cost for the move- he confirmed this. The day of the move came, and the movers were prompt, fast, polite, and effective - I cannot say a single bad word about the guys who showed up and actually did the moving. However, after the move I was shocked when I was handed my bill. I only had a small amount of stuff to move a couple cities over, and the move was fully competed in under 2.5 hours. However, I was charged for 3 hours, with each hour charged at the price I was quoted for the entire job! I explained to the movers that this was not what I was quoted, so they reached out to the boss who then drove over to meet us. He was the most rude, unprofessional, and offensive business owner I have ever met! He got into my face and started poking at my chest with his finger, as if he was going to scare me into paying him the amount of money he wanted. He lied to my face and told me that he said things on the phone which he never did, and he acted as if it was my responsibility to know that the quoted price was not enough, so I should therefore have expected to pay more. I tried to explain to him that I don't know what his overhead costs are, and the only thing I have to go off of is the price I was quoted and which was confirmed to me multiple times- he didn't care. I also explained to him that I received quotes for less than what he was attempting to charge me, and that I wouldn't have hired his company if he was upfront about his pricing - again, he didn't care. All he seemed to care about was insulting me, cussing at me, and trying to squeeze as much money out of me as he could. It was only after asking him for his business license number, and telling him that I was going to report his unhonest and unethical business practices, that he finally agreed to settle for less. I ended up paying him only about what I would have paid another company, and not the full ridiculous amount of money he wanted- however, I think he is lucky he even got that with the business practices he uses! All I can offer as advice, is to stay far far away from Sigavan!

My mother and I went to the 3 day good countries visit drove by "Gathering Pete" and adored it. I appreciated the agenda and pacing of stops and would not have barred any of them. The transport size is topped at 16 and was impeccable, as it wasn't such a variety of individuals that it backed off the gathering. I like the meeting place as it's extremely focal and simple to spot. Pete was an extremely wary and safe driver, exceptionally instructive, fun, clever, and well disposed. He has every one of the characteristics of an incredible visit guide and unmistakably an important part to the Emarald group. We settled on the primary decision of a B&B Suite and got it - it was a flawless B&B we stayed at for both evenings and I felt like we settled on the ideal decision.

“The association of truckers with cowboys and related myths was perhaps most obvious during the urban-cowboy craze of the late 1970s, a period that saw middle-class urbanites wearing cowboy clothing and patronizing simulated cowboy nightclubs. During this time, at least four truck driver movies appeared, CB radio became popular, and truck drivers were prominently featured in all forms of popular media.” — Lawrence J. Ouellet

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.

In many countries, driving a truck requires a special driving license. The requirements and limitations vary with each different jurisdiction.

A trailer is not very difficult to categorize. In general, it is an unpowered vehicle towed by a powered vehicle. Trailers are most commonly used for the transport of goods and materials. Although some do enjoy recreational usage of trailers as well. 

“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

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 the United States, a commercial driver's license is required to drive any type of commercial vehicle weighing 26,001 lb (11,794 kg) or more. In 2006 the US trucking industry employed 1.8 million drivers of heavy trucks.

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.

The moving industry in the United States was deregulated with the Household Goods Transportation Act of 1980. This act allowed interstate movers to issue binding or fixed estimates for the first time. Doing so opened the door to hundreds of new moving companies to enter the industry. This led to an increase in competition and soon movers were no longer competing on services but on price. As competition drove prices lower and decreased what were already slim profit margins, "rogue" movers began hijacking personal property as part of a new scam. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) enforces Federal consumer protection regulations related to the interstate shipment of household goods (i.e., household moves that cross State lines). FMCSA has held this responsibility since 1999, and the Department of Transportation has held this responsibility since 1995 (the Interstate Commerce Commission held this authority prior to its termination in 1995).

As we know in the trucking industry, some trailers are part of large trucks, which we call semi-trailer trucks for transportation of cargo. Trailers may also be used in a personal manner as well, whether for personal or small business purposes.

Public transportation is vital to a large part of society and is in dire need of work and attention. In 2010, the DOT awarded $742.5 million in funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to 11 transit projects. The awardees specifically focused light rail projects. One includes both a commuter rail extension and a subway project in New York City. The public transportation New York City has to offer is in need of some TLC. Another is working on a rapid bus transit system in Springfield, Oregon. The funds also subsidize a heavy rail project in northern Virginia. This finally completes the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's Metro Silver Line, connecting to Washington, D.C., and the Washington Dulles International Airport. This is important because the DOT has previously agreed to subsidize the Silver Line construction to Reston, Virginia.

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.

Logistics is generally the ability to organize and put in place many complex operations at a single time. It is the management of the flow of things to meet the needs of customers or corporations. Resources managed in logistics includes tangible items such as food, materials, animals, equipment, etc. Not to mention the items that are not tangible such as time and information. This means that the movement of physical items, such as in the moving industry, involves a clear understanding of solid workflow. Such logistics can involve the handling of necessary materials, producing, packaging, inventory, transportation, warehousing, and often security.

The FMCSA has established rules to maintain and regulate the safety of the trucking industry. According to FMCSA rules, driving a goods-carrying CMV more than 11 hours or to drive after having been on duty for 14 hours, is illegal. Due to such heavy driving, they need a break to complete other tasks such as loading and unloading cargo, stopping for gas and other required vehicle inspections, as well as non-working duties such as meal and rest breaks. The 3-hour difference between the 11-hour driving limit and 14 hour on-duty limit gives drivers time to take care of such duties. In addition, after completing an 11 to 14 hour on duty period, the driver much be allowed 10 hours off-duty.

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 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.

The Federal-Aid Highway Amendments of 1974 established a federal maximum gross vehicle weight of 80,000 pounds (36,000 kg). It also introduced a sliding scale of truck weight-to-length ratios based on the bridge formula. Although, they did not establish a federal minimum weight limit. By failing to establish a federal regulation, six contiguous in the Mississippi Valley rebelled. Becoming known as the "barrier state", they refused to increase their Interstate weight limits to 80,000 pounds. Due to this, the trucking industry faced a barrier to efficient cross-country interstate commerce.

The industry intends to both consumers as well as moving companies, this is why there are Ministers of Transportation in the industry. They are there to set and maintain laws and regulations in place to create a safer environment. It offers its members professional service training and states the time that movers have been in existence. It also provides them with federal government representation and statistical industry reporting. Additionally, there are arbitration services for lost or damaged claims, publications, public relations, and annual tariff updates and awards. This site includes articles as well that give some direction, a quarterly data summary, and industry trends.

Heavy trucks. A cement mixer is an example of Class 8 heavy trucks. Heavy trucks are the largest on-road trucks, Class 8. These include vocational applications such as heavy dump trucks, concrete pump trucks, and refuse hauling, as well as ubiquitous long-haul 6×4 and 4x2 tractor units. Road damage and wear increase very rapidly with the axle weight. The axle weight is the truck weight divided by the number of axles, but the actual axle weight depends on the position of the load over the axles. The number of steering axles and the suspension type also influence the amount of the road wear. In many countries with good roads, a six-axle truck may have a maximum weight over 50 tons (49 long tons; 55 short tons).
