We started our move with this company with them picking up our HHG 3 days after our promised date. Upon booking I was not informed of any type of pick up window. I talked to Heidi and Liz - they were not friendly in regards to pick up. Instead they were condescending and rude.

We started our move with this company with them picking up our HHG 3 days after our promised date. Upon booking I was not informed of any type of pick up window. I talked to Heidi and Liz - they were not friendly in regards to pick up. Instead they were condescending and rude. I never received any phone calls saying the truck was not coming, I would only find out by call LDM myself to find out what time the truck would be there that day. Only to find out they were not coming. I was them promised an early pick up time and the movers did not show up for an hour and a half after this time. When they got there they were nice but something did not seem right. The mover kept trying to get me to sign a blank contract, and tried to charge us for things we did not need. Now onto the delivery nightmare... Our stuff was picked up June 4 and today - June 25 we still have not received any of it. I began calling LDM a week after the pick up, and they said it would be delivered in 5-10 days. On day 7 I called for an update - turns out it did not make the truck and was still sitting in storage. I was told it would be on the next truck. Again I call, two days later and it still has not made the truck. No one is able to tell me where my stuff is, when it will be delivered or what the weight of the HHG are... Any time I call all I hear is we have 30 days to deliver - when I was assured that it would not take longer than 2 weeks. I am not impressed at all, and I am truly worried about the whereabouts of my items.

In American English, the word "truck" has historically been preceded by a word describing the type of vehicle, such as a "tanker truck". In British English, preference would lie with "tanker" or "petrol tanker".
The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) is an influential association as an advocate for transportation. Setting important standards, they are responsible for publishing specifications, test protocols, and guidelines. All which are used in highway design and construction throughout the United States. Despite its name, the association represents more than solely highways. Alongside highways, they focus on air, rail, water, and public transportation as well.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issues Hours of Service regulations. At the same time, they govern the working hours of anyone operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in the United States. Such regulations apply to truck drivers, commercial and city bus drivers, and school bus drivers who operate CMVs. With these rules in place, the number of daily and weekly hours spent driving and working is limited. The FMCSA regulates the minimum amount of time drivers must spend resting between driving shifts. In regards to intrastate commerce, the respective state's regulations apply.
Throughout the United States, bypass routes are a special type of route most commonly used on an alternative routing of a highway around a town. Specifically when the main route of the highway goes through the town. Originally, these routes were designated as "truck routes" as a means to divert trucking traffic away from towns. However, this name was later changed by AASHTO in 1959 to what we now call a "bypass". Many "truck routes" continue to remain regardless that the mainline of the highway prohibits trucks.
Moving companies that operate within the borders of a particular state are usually regulated by the state DOT. Sometimes the public utility commission in that state will take care of it. This only applies to some of the U.S. states such as in California (California Public Utilities Commission) or Texas (Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. However, no matter what state you are in it is always best to make sure you are compliant with that state
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).
