They took my call and scheduled my move in a fast a manner. The movers showed up on time, and the move flowed smoothly. They even did accommodate my cute little puppies. Respect for that high priority worker.

Never used High Priority Movers services before, always had to get my unwilling, surly friends, which at times did not end up well. My recent move I was done with having to deal with my friends a lot of misshapen if you all get what I mean. So I decided to use High Priority Movers, and I tell you I had landed on the best deal there possibly is. Every step Experience was pleasant and straightforward. Highly recommended.

Where so I begin with this company. They promise so much just like the negative comments below. I agree with all the one star rates on this page. Alex, Sal, Dan, and some rude arrogent lady names Tiffany. They blame each other and a different person calls you each time. I was quoted for weight and I have proof. At the time of purchase up the hired a 3rd party vendor who has even horrible rating and they took all our stuff on to the truck and then told us we will be paying by cubic square feet and if we give them cash they will knock off a few thousand dollars. These people try not to pay taxes on thier income by only collecting cash. They said the DOT requires 21 business for a move. We are at 23 business days, which is way over a month and no delivery. Bunch if crooks. Please do your famt a favor and never call them. You will save your a big headache, stress, and tons of money. They quoted us $3500. We got rid of half of the stuff in the estimate and we ended up paying close to $6500! They basically cornered us. I was terrified of the person they sent into my home.to pick up the furniture. When I called back to speak to the person that gave me the quote and follow up...sal and Alex... They said they don't work thier anymore. But other review I see online people are dealing with the same two guys. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!

DO NOT do business with this company!!! They will be very polite over the phone especially before they get your money. Alexis was our rep and she was incredibly diligent before we paid our money, she even looked over competitive quotes for us giving her "professional" feedback. All of that was BS she lied about the costs, she lied about the amount of space we needed, we were given fragile packing from another company Alexis said she would match that which was a lie. Before we paid our deposit she answered at least 10 phone calls and greeted us by name; she also answered text messages promptly. Once we paid our money we have NEVER spoken to her again, she never answered a call and after the 4th call we were sent straight to voicemail.

Our pickup date was scheduled for 9/7 and we were assured by Alexis and her managers that we would get a delivery by the 10th at the absolute latest, another LIE. Once the movers came we were told the amount of space we were quoted for was not possible with the amount of stuff we had, the mover agreed that our inventory was the exact same we gave to High priority but they lied to us about the amount of space we needed. We spoke to all of the "managers" at high priority for nearly 2 hours and were given zero help and were required to pay DOUBLE the quote.

Once our stuff was picked up by a third party company Cobra van lines out of Illinois we were told we would get a call on 9/8 for delivery date, that call never came. We called every number we could find for Cobra van lines and most of the numbers were disconnected/rang with no answer/ or went straight to voicemail. We entered an agreement with High priority not Cobra van lines. High priority knew nothing about the company that picked up our stuff it took them close to a week to get anyone from Cobra on the phone and no one had any answers as to when our stuff would arrive.

After almost 2 weeks over our expected delivery date our stuff showed up, we had several items damaged and will be pursuing options to get payment for the damages.

I apologize for this long review but it was necessary and I left our several other lies and shady business practices. Long story short DO NOT do business with this company, they will lie to you to get your money and do nothing to support you when things go wrong.

The movers that we hired were professional, hard working and efficient helping us to pack and move our 2 bedroom Brian was very reliable on quotes and explanations. I have provided his name to my realtor and I will refer anyone else I know who is in the process of relocation. Thanks again guys !

I don't think I've ever published a negative review. My wife and I both worked in the customer service industry for 4 years, so we know how hard it is to deliver top notch service all of the time. However, I urge you not to do business with High Priority Movers, or the moving company the contracted our job with, Neville and Sons Trucking (Clermont/Winter Garden, FL). I honestly don't have time to write out all of the details of how unprofessionally our situation has been handled. But here's the bottom line: our truck was loaded in Tacoma, WA, on July, 24, 2018. After a 14 hour (!!) load time, they said we had to pay 50% more than the estimate we were given the day before (!). Now, 34 days later, my wife, 3 children, and I sit in Huntsville, Alabama, in an empty house with no hope of our truck ever arriving. We have been given 4 different estimated arrival dates (Aug 1-3, Aug 7, Aug 22, and Aug 27), and all have come and gone. Today, I called the WA State Patrol, and we are now seeking legal counsel. Anyone we speak with at High Priority (Adam, Tiffany, Dan, Alexus, Sierra) handles us politely, but they are not to be trusted. Getting anyone on the phone from Neville and Sons has been next to impossible. Needless to say, I cannot discourage anyone strongly enough from doing business with either High Priority Movers or Neville and Sons Trucking.

I was so nervous about moving from one state to another, but High Priority made me feel at ease. Alexus and Sierra kept me updated every step of the way. The movers showed up on time, they were polite and very professional. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking to move.

Thank you again High Priority Movers!

Best decision I made during our fast move! My husband's job was relocated on the east coast and we had very little time to move our family of three. I'm not sure there is anything I have dreaded more than moving with a toddler but High Priority Movers made it a cake walk. I initially did a search and came across their VERY simple to use website. I filled out the form and within the hour I was contacted by one of their friendly representatives Kurt who walked me through the entire process. After doing some research I was surprised at the affordable prices and no "hidden" or additional fees. I can't say enough great things about my entire dealings with this company. The movers showed up on time and ready to rock. They packed our entire house up, loaded the boxes, transported, unloaded at the new place and even set up our new home. With everything else going on during a family move I can say they made it the best, easiest, most stress free experience. If we find ourselves moving again they will be the very first call I make. Highly recommend, do yourself the favor.

Question 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.

Question The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is an agency within the United States Department of Transportation. The purpose of the FMCSA is to regulate safety within the trucking and moving industry in the United States. The FMCSA enforces safety precautions that reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving large trucks and buses.

Question There are many different types of trailers that are designed to haul livestock, such as cattle or horses. Most commonly used are the stock trailer, which is enclosed on the bottom but has openings at approximately. This opening is at the eye level of the animals in order to allow ventilation. A horse trailer is a much more elaborate form of stock trailer. Generally horses are hauled with the purpose of attending or participating in competition. Due to this, they must be in peak physical condition, so horse trailers are designed for the comfort and safety of the animals. They're typically well-ventilated with windows and vents along with specifically designed suspension. Additionally, horse trailers have internal partitions that assist animals staying upright during travel. It's also to protect other horses from injuring each other in transit. There are also larger horse trailers that may incorporate more specialized areas for horse tack. They may even include elaborate quarters with sleeping areas, bathroom, cooking facilities etc.

Question The industry intends to both consumers as well as moving companies, this is why there are Ministers of Transportation in the industry.

Question As we've learned the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 was crucial in the construction of the Interstate Highway System. Described as an interconnected network of the controlled-access freeway. It also allowed larger trucks to travel at higher speeds through rural and urban areas alike. This act was also the first to allow the first federal largest gross vehicle weight limits for trucks, set at 73,208 pounds (33,207 kg). The very same year, Malcolm McLean pioneered modern containerized intermodal shipping. This allowed for the more efficient transfer of cargo between truck, train, and ships.

Question

The intention of a trailer coupler is to secure the trailer to the towing vehicle. It is an important piece, as the trailer couple attaches to the trailer ball. This then forms a ball and socket connection. It allows for relative movement between the towing vehicle and trailer while towing over uneven road surfaces. The trailer ball should be mounted to the rear bumper or to a drawbar, which may be removable. The drawbar secures to the trailer hitch by inserting it into the hitch receiver and pinning it.
 
The three most common types of couplers used are straight couplers, A-frame couplers, and adjustable couplers. Another option is bumper-pull hitches in which case draw bars can exert a large amount of leverage on the tow vehicle. This makes it harder to recover from a swerving situation (thus it may not be the safest choice depending on your trip).

Question In 1976, the number one hit on the Billboard chart was "Convoy," a novelty song by C.W. McCall about a convoy of truck drivers evading speed traps and toll booths across America. The song inspired the 1978 action film Convoy directed by Sam Peckinpah. After the film's release, thousands of independent truck drivers went on strike and participated in violent protests during the 1979 energy crisis (although similar strikes had occurred during the 1973 energy crisis).

Question 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.

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 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.

Question As we know in the trucking industry, some trailers are part of large trucks, which we call semi-trailer trucks for transportation of cargo. Trailers may also be used in a personal manner as well, whether for personal or small business purposes.

Question A business route (occasionally city route) in the United States and Canada is a short special route connected to a parent numbered highway at its beginning, then routed through the central business district of a nearby city or town, and finally reconnecting with the same parent numbered highway again at its end.

Question

In 1938, the now-eliminated Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) enforced the first Hours of Service (HOS) rules. Drivers became limited to 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period. At this time, work included loading, unloading, driving, handling freight, preparing reports, preparing vehicles for service, or performing any other duty in relation to the transportation of passengers or property.
 
The ICC intended for the 3-hour difference between 12 hours of work and 15 hours on-duty to be used for meals and rest breaks. This meant that the weekly max was limited to 60 hours over 7 days (non-daily drivers), or 70 hours over 8 days (daily drivers). With these rules in place, it allowed 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period, 9 hours of rest, with 3 hours for breaks within a 24-hour day.

Question DOT officers of each state are generally in charge of the enforcement of the Hours of Service (HOS). These are sometimes checked when CMVs pass through weigh stations. Drivers found to be in violation of the HOS can be forced to stop driving for a certain period of time. This, in turn, may negatively affect the motor carrier's safety rating. Requests to change the HOS are a source of debate. Unfortunately, many surveys indicate drivers routinely get away with violating the HOS. Such facts have started yet another debate on whether motor carriers should be required to us EOBRs in their vehicles. Relying on paper-based log books does not always seem to enforce the HOS law put in place for the safety of everyone.

Question The basics of all trucks are not difficult, as they share common construction. They are generally made of chassis, a cab, an area for placing cargo or equipment, axles, suspension, road wheels, and engine and a drive train. Pneumatic, hydraulic, water, and electrical systems may also be present. Many also tow one or more trailers or semi-trailers, which also vary in multiple ways but are similar as well.

Question 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).

Question The word cargo is in reference to particular goods that are generally used for commercial gain. Cargo transportation is generally meant to mean by ship, boat, or plane. However, the term now applies to all types of freight, now including goods carried by train, van, or truck. This term is now used in the case of goods in the cold-chain, as perishable inventory is always cargo in transport towards its final homeEven when it is held in climate-controlled facilities, it is important to remember perishable goods or inventory have a short life.

Question

The concept of a bypass is a simple one. It is a road or highway that purposely avoids or "bypasses" a built-up area, town, or village. Bypasses were created with the intent to let through traffic flow without having to get stuck in local traffic. In general they are supposed to reduce congestion in a built-up area. By doing so, road safety will greatly improve.
 
A bypass designated for trucks traveling a long distance, either commercial or otherwise, is called a truck route.

Question The decade of the 70's in the United States was a memorable one, especially for the notion of truck driving. This seemed to dramatically increase popularity among trucker culture. Throughout this era, and even in today's society, truck drivers are romanticized as modern-day cowboys and outlaws. These stereotypes were due to their use of Citizens Band (CB) radios to swap information with other drivers. Information regarding the locations of police officers and transportation authorities. The general public took an interest in the truckers 'way of life' as well. Both drivers and the public took interest in plaid shirts, trucker hats, CB radios, and CB slang.

Question The 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 tests essentially led to the 1964 recommendation by AASHTO to Congress. The recommendation determined the gross weight limit for trucks to be determined by a 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.

Question In 1933, as a part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “New Deal”, the National Recovery Administration requested that each industry creates a “code of fair competition”. The American Highway Freight Association and the Federated Trucking Associations of America met in the spring of 1933 to speak for the trucking association and begin discussing a code. By summer of 1933 the code of competition was completed and ready for approval. The two organizations had also merged to form the American Trucking Associations. The code was approved on February 10, 1934. On May 21, 1934, the first president of the ATA, Ted Rogers, became the first truck operator to sign the code. A special "Blue Eagle" license plate was created for truck operators to indicate compliance with the code.

Question There many reasons for moving, each one with a unique and specific reason as to why. Relocation services, employee relocation, or workforce mobility can create a range of processes. This process of transferring employees, their families, and/or entire departments of a business to a new location can be difficult. Like some types of employee benefits, these matters are dealt with by human resources specialists within a corporation.

Question With the ending of World War I, several developments were made to enhance trucks. Such an example would be by putting pneumatic tires replaced the previously common full rubber versions. These advancements continued, including electric starters, power brakes, 4, 6, and 8 cylinder engines. Closed cabs and electric lighting followed. The modern semi-trailer truck also debuted. Additionally, touring car builders such as Ford and Renault entered the heavy truck market.
