I am so glad i did not make my decision for a moving company based on reviews. I was moving from Denver to Firestone. 1 bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor to a 2 bedroom house. I had 3 moving companies come out and give me a estimate for packing and moving my apartment. All 3 companies were with in $500 of each other. I chose Great Plains because the salesman showed up on time and made me feel comfortable. On the day of the move i got a phone call from Great Plains letting me know the crew was about 30 min away. Surprisingly they showed up on time but only had 3 movers. I was told that their would be 4 - 6. Walked the crew lead through my place and let him know what was to be packed and what was staying. They started packing at about 10 am and started moving my furniture about 1130 am. Those 3 guys had my apartment completely moved out and loaded by 4 pm. They arrived in Firestone at 530 pm. I walked the crew through my house and told them where i wanted everything. That crew was absolutely amazing. They put everything where i wanted it. All my furniture set up (couch, table, chairs, bed, dresser w/mirror, washer and dryer). The whole crew was awesome. I have nothing negative to say about my move. Thank you Great Plains.

Beyond terrible customer service. After the date our delivery should have arrived passed we called and were told "sears shouldn't give out delivery dates, we only go to your area once a month... it should arrive some time in March" We ordered a HUGE French door fridge. This is unacceptable and the worst part was customer service, if you want to call it that.

I had been perusing frightfulness stories about long separation movers so I brought a chance with these folks and the experience was good to the point that I wish I could give more stars. They moved me out of my stockpiling unit in Denver and moved every one of my things to Texas. But rather one thing was even chipped.

Question 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'.

Question Trucks of the era mostly used two-cylinder engines and had a carrying capacity of 1,500 to 2,000 kilograms (3,300 to 4,400 lb). In 1904, 700 heavy trucks were built in the United States, 1000 in 1907, 6000 in 1910, and 25000 in 1914. A Benz truck modified by Netphener company (1895)

Question 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.

Question “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

Question

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.
