Moving with Long Distance Relocation Group
DO NOT HIRE THIS COMPANY, YOU'LL REGRET IT!
I've moved crosscountry twice with different moving companies, the latter being this one. Provided an estimate and went through each room of my home, with accurate information on each item.The estimate that they gave me was SO FAR OFF from the final. Told me 5k, and they did NOT estimate correctly. They show up WITH A RENTED TRUCK, that wasn't going to move a home of items that we discussed. They loaded it up and were only half way through. Here's where they get you! THE TRUCK IS LOADED & THAT'S WHEN THEY SAY THIS IS GOING TO BE DOUBLE!
We tried to be reasonable with them on the phone,the guy was rude, kept talking over him, and HUNG UP W/O HELPING US! MIND YOU OUR LIFE IS SITTING ON THE TRUCK AND NEED TO BE 11 STATES AWAY IN 5 DAYS. Put us in a rock and a hard place, which feels like their plan all along!
I HAD TO PAY 11K FOR THIS MOVE. THAT WE DID NOT HAVE. Turned down 3 other companies and I regret it. To be clear, moving co's pick up from LOCATION A and to take items to new home at LOCATION B. That's it,not here.
They pick up w/ CONTRACTED WORKERS & RENTED TRUCK, THEN take items to their warehouse IN NJ TO RESHUFFLE! THEN TAKE TO LOCATION B. THIS IS WHERE MY $400 VACUUM WENT MISSING! Also how 80% of furniture was damaged. They just throw items around, I have BRAND NEW Dining & Bedroom sets 6 mo. old that were ALL DAMAGED. BUSTED CORNERS AND GAPING HOLES IN A WOOD DRESSER, HOW DOES THAT EVEN HAPPEN? BROKEN DISHES THAT WERE TRIPLE WRAPPED AND MARKED FRAGILE. FAMILY CHINA PASSED DOWN THAT'S UNABLE TO BE REPLACED! Ever since, NO ONE will call me back!
BECAUSE THEY HAVE A CALL CENTER SERVICE THAT ANSWERS THE PHONE AND PUSHES MESSAGES...OR SO THEY STATE, BECAUSE I'VE LEFT 10+ MESSAGES AND EMAILS AND NO ONE CALLS BACK.I'VE PLACED A CLAIM WITH THEIR 3RD PARTY INS. I'M ASSUMING AT THIS POINT A MONTH LATER THAT I'M NOT GETTING ANYTHING BACK FOR THEIR NEGLIGENCE.
BUYER BEWARE DON'T DO ANYTHING WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!!!!
This company is horrible. I have never had such a miserable customer service experience. This companies sales staff is aggressive, rude, and will bombard you with text messages on your personal number. The upper-level management couldn't be less helpful and frankly, it is very obvious they do not care about what they are doing or their customers. I was repeatedly given false, misleading information, and I was assured over and over that my items would arrive within 7-14 business days. It is now business day 14 and my items are still in Southern California, where they started. Do not even consider using this company any move.
Our ultimate goal in finding a mover was to get a reasonable price with no headaches. I heard a million bad stories about movers and luckily for us it wasn't a terribly tough decision to make after speaking with both Sammy and his supervisor patrick at Long Distance Inc . Sammy got me out a reasonable price and was able to give me a military discount. when abraham and his crew got here they got right to work and did pretty much everything for me. we were moving a 2/2 apt from jersey city to brooklyn so it was a pretty quick move. they got here this morning, loaded and packed it al in their truck (which was surprisingly clean my wife adds) and drove to brooklyn. we needed a little bit of in between time so the crew went for lunch and met us in brooklyn where they placed all the furniture into the house. overall the guys delivered on their promises and left me and my wife happy.
In the United States, shipments larger than about 7,000 kg (15,432 lb) are classified as truckload freight (TL). It is more efficient and affordable for a large shipment to have exclusive use of one larger trailer. This is opposed to having to share space on a smaller Less than Truckload freight carrier.
“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 1978 Sylvester Stallone starred in the film "F.I.S.T.". The story is loosely based on the 'Teamsters Union'. This union is a labor union which includes truck drivers as well as its then president, Jimmy Hoffa.
The Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways is most commonly known as the Interstate Highway System, Interstate Freeway System, Interstate System, or simply the Interstate. It is a network of controlled-access highways that forms a part of the National Highway System of the United States. Named after President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who endorsed its formation, the idea was to have portable moving and storage. Construction was authorized by the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956. The original portion was completed 35 years later, although some urban routes were canceled and never built. The network has since been extended and, as of 2013, it had a total length of 47,856 miles (77,017 km), making it the world's second longest after China's. As of 2013, about one-quarter of all vehicle miles driven in the country use the Interstate system. In 2006, the cost of construction had been estimated at about $425 billion (equivalent to $511 billion in 2015).
