3 LITTLE-KNOWN COSTS OF MOVING YOU WON’T SEE COMING

  • Stopping utility fees. Sometimes, the companies that provide your electricity, water, or cable will assess certain fees if you’re not able to transfer their to your new address (for example, if you’re moving long distance).
  • New deposits. Additionally, if you’re moving state to state, you’ll need to get new utility services started, so you might have to pay a fee there as well.
  • Cleaning costs. When you rent a place, you put down a hefty security deposit and receive it as a refund when you move out (provided the place is in as good a condition as when you moved in). When you move out, you might look around and be shocked at how much cleaning there is to do in order to receive your deposit back, and usually, time is on short supply. Hiring cleaners can ease that burden, but also put a small dent in the money you plan to receive back.






Did You Know

QuestionTrailer stability can be defined as the tendency of a trailer to dissipate side-to-side motion. The initial motion may be caused by aerodynamic forces, such as from a cross wind or a passing vehicle. One common criterion for stability is the center of mass location with respect to the wheels, which can usually be detected by tongue weight. If the center of mass of the trailer is behind its wheels, therefore having a negative tongue weight, the trailer will likely be unstable. Another parameter which is less commonly a factor is the trailer moment of inertia. Even if the center of mass is forward of the wheels, a trailer with a long load, and thus large moment of inertia, may be unstable.

QuestionSignage of business routes varies, depending on the type of route they are derived from. Business routes paralleling U.S. and state highways usually have exactly the same shield shapes and nearly the same overall appearance as the routes they parallel, with a rectangular plate reading "BUSINESS" placed above the shield (either supplementing or replacing the directional plate, depending on the preference of the road agency). In order to better identify and differentiate alternate routes from the routes they parallel, some states such as Maryland are beginning to use green shields for business routes off U.S. highways. In addition, Maryland uses a green shield for business routes off state highways with the word "BUSINESS" in place of "MARYLAND" is used for a state route.

In the moving industry, transportation logistics management isincrediblyimportant.Essentially, it is the management that implements and controls efficiency, the flow of storage of goods, as well as services.This includes related information between the point of origin and the point of consumption to meet customer's specifications.Logistics is quite complex but canbe modeled, analyzed, visualized, and optimized by simulation software.Generally, the goal of transportation logistics management is to reduce or cut the use of such resources.A professional working in the field of moving logistics managementis calleda logistician.

QuestionThe American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) conducted a series of tests.These tests were extensive field tests of roads and bridges to assess damages to the pavement.In particular they wanted to know how traffic contributes to the deterioration of pavement materials. These testsessentiallyled to the 1964 recommendation by AASHTO to Congress.The recommendation determined the gross weight limit for trucks tobe determined bya bridge formula table. This includes table based on axle lengths, instead of a state upper limit. By the time 1970 came around, there were over 18 million truck on America's roads.

QuestionTracing 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 Greektrokhos(τροχός), meaning "wheel", fromtrekhein(τρέχειν, "to run").

QuestionCommercial trucks in the U.S. pay higher road taxes on a State level than the road vehicles and are subject to extensive regulation. This begs the question of why these trucks are paying more. I'll tell you.Justto name a few reasons, commercial truck pay higher road use taxes.They are much bigger and heavier than most other vehicles, resulting in more wear and tear on the roadways.They are also on the road for extended periods of time, which also affects the interstate as well as roads and passing through towns. Yet, rules on use taxes differ among jurisdictions.
