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.

Question

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.

QuestionThere are many different types of trailers thatare designedto haul livestock, such as cattle or horses.Mostcommonlyused are the stock trailer, whichis enclosedon the bottom but has openings at approximately.

QuestionThe 1950's were quite different than the years to come.They were more likely tobe considered"Knights of the Road", if you will, for helping stranded travelers.In these times truck driverswere enviedandwere viewedas 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. Driversroutinelysabotaged and discovered new ways to falsify the machine's records.
