By far the WORST moving experience in my life. This company is unethical at best. They WILL lie about your quote, disrespect you, break your items, damage your house and not pay for the repairs. I was quoted $4 thousand dollars for my move and ended up paying them almost double because they wouldn't leave my property unless I did. I should have called the cops. Their negligence broke my mom's wrist, they damaged several pieces of furniture including a wrought iron fireplace (how is that possible if not intentional???). Unless you want to over pay someone to treat you, your belongings and property like garbage, do NOT hire this company. I pray they go out of business so they experience a little bit of the hell they purposely inflict on their customers.

Next Door Relocators sent me a contract for 2 workers to move my one bedroom apartment. When they showed up on of the workers had a bad knee and was upset and rude and did not want to do the work. They advised that I had to pay for 5-7 hours of work instead of the agreed upon amount of 3 hours and if necessary 5 hours of work with two workers for the amount of $105. When I advised that I could not grantee 5 to 7 hours and for them to move what they could in 3 they left leaving me stranded. When I asked for my deposit back the manager advised that he did not want to give me back my deposit and would send other movers. Instead of sending 2 more workers he sent 4, which I had to pay 125 per mover and they still charged me for 5 hours when it only took them 3 hours. They would not move my furniture off the truck until I went to the bank and paid them in cash. They advised that that they would not continue to help until they were paid to complete the job. I felt intimidated and scared. The Movers were super unprofessional and the sales Rep Scott Likens orchestrated the whole thing. This company robbed me without a gun. I would never recommend this company to my worst enemy please be warned!!!

My Boss Bob (Robert) Wise booked this Company for his Move in Marietta, Georgia. He called the companies representative at Phone: 770-855-0141 from our companies business line several times to sure up things for the move. The NDR Rep called back in and cussed out our Company Support Desk Personal when they answered the phone and accused them of being a telemarketer. When the Company Support Desk Personal calmly and politely tried to explain that they were not a telemarketer and was not selling anyone something the NDR Rep proceeded to cuss them out and hang up. The number the NDR Rep called is the Main Business Line for a POS Company and all phone calls are recorded. So we have this call recorded.

Michael was referred by a co-worker, wow, what a mistake. I sent him 30 pictures of our 2 bedroom apartment for an accurate quote and he quoted us 5-7 hours MAX! This was from a 3rd floor to a 4th floor, he said he knows the place we moved very well and compensated for all the walking and floors in his estimate according to him. Somehow his "quicker" 3 man crew took 11 hours!!! I said this is totally ridiculous, Michael was yelling and cussing on the phone, threatening to call the police on us. So unprofessional. I ended up paying them hundreds of dollars in cash and even more on a credit card. They also damaged 5 things and Michael refused to replace or repair them. This company is just awful all over the place. People like Michael should not be allowed to do business and take advantage of consumers like he does. F grade is deserved here.

This business is a fraud and the "Sales Director" is a crook. The "Sales Director", Scott Likens, estimated the job twice to account for the original estimate being too low. Even then came in at 50% over that estimate. This company left several thousand dollars worth of patio furniture, lawn equipment, and bicycles (all large, expensive and cumbersome items) in the garage and did not complete the job they were hired to do. At no time during the 4+ hours of packing was I alerted that there was going to be a space issue. Several requests to talk to a "General Manager" - apparently named Mike - were ignored throughout the move by Likens. When asked what the plan was for them to complete the job that they had committed to do, all they wanted was their money. Obviously they left larger items that can't fit easily into a personal vehicle in order to get more money and offered to provide a new estimate to complete the job they were already hired and paid to do. When asked if this is how they do business, Likens answered "It is today" and threatened to call the police if I didn't sign the credit card slip. I never threatened to withhold payment. I paid over $1600 to do a job that was never completed. Do not do business with this company. According to the movers, this is par for the course with any job that Likens bids.

Do not hire these guys. First off, the estimate was 4 to 6 hours to move my house. I got 4 people and a 26 ft truck. It took 9 hours at $135 plus truck fee and etc.. My neighbors even commented how slow can those guys work. During the process, they ripped my sofa and scratched my Antique bench. The movers stated "Don't worry, they could repair it onsite". HA. A month later after Scott Likens, stating that they would take care of it and it would have to be scheduled to be picked up. For a month, the scheduling was 2 or 3 times a week. And they were a no show every time to pick up the sofa and the bench. I gave them an ultimatum, pick up or I shall see an attorney by a certain day. Guess what, no show and no courtesy call stating they were not going to show. Which a courtesy call never happened. I was always calling them. I am in the process of contacting an attorney and getting the repairs done myself and handing off the bill for repairs and my attorney. I only hope that the people reading this review heave warning and do not hire these people. I have tried to be patient and considerate. Scott was only giving me lip service and his troubles with the business with no results. Bottom Line. They like to milk the clock and if they damage anything they don't care.

Worst moving company ever. I hired these scumbags for a July 14 move and a few days prior they call and request I change my date to the 13th because they overbooked. I agreed cause I was told there would be a discount. They chose the time and showed up 2.5 hours late with one less person than requested. The movers were rude, didn't care about my stuff and even broke two items in front of me. I asked them what the process was for replacing, they shrugged their shoulders and said it's not their problem. They complained the whole time and also hit my mailbox which the driver denied even though I saw it happen. Once the truck was filled with my help, we went to the next house. Upon arrival one of the scumbags stated that I should be able to afford to tip them nicely after looking at my new house. Then once we were done and yes I had to help. I had to speak to their manager because they were trying to overcharge me. I negotiated down to the original price jut to get them out. But I had put down a 100 dollar deposit which they decided to keep so they made an additional 100 dollars. I would never recommend these guys to anyone and don't understand how they are still in business.

Thanks for taking care of my antiques! I moved here from Illinois 6 months ago and moved from my rental house to my new house. I was very concerned about my antique furniture. Once the movers arrived my worries were over. The guys did a fantastic job wrapping and securing all my antique furniture. My new house had wood floors and I really like the way the guys put floor runners on the floor to protect it. The job was finished one hour ealier than the quote. Anyone looking to move should consider Next Door Relocators. I feel I got a great deal.

All ran well with my late move from Citrus Heights to Auburn. Heather, Kevin, and Jerred [aka The Dream Team], thank you such a great amount for your exceptionally proficient employment.

P.S. I have quite recently wrapped up the crates, and not one thing has been broken or harmed. Another sign of the high polished methodology of Kevin and Jerred.

Question 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".

Question “ The first original song about truck driving appeared in 1939 when Cliff Bruner and His Boys recorded Ted Daffan's "Truck Driver's Blues," a song explicitly marketed to roadside cafe owners who were installing juke boxes in record numbers to serve truckers and other motorists.” - Shane Hamilton

Question 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.

Question The term "lorry" has an ambiguous origin, but it is likely that its roots were in the rail transport industry. This is where the word is known to have been used in 1838 to refer to a type of truck (a freight car as in British usage) specifically a large flat wagon. It may derive from the verb lurry, which means to pull or tug, of uncertain origin. It's expanded meaning was much more exciting as "self-propelled vehicle for carrying goods", and has been in usage since 1911. Previously, unbeknownst to most, the word "lorry" was used for a fashion of big horse-drawn goods wagon.

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 1950's were quite different than the years to come. They were more likely to be considered "Knights of the Road", if you will, for helping stranded travelers. In these times truck drivers were envied and were viewed as 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. Drivers routinely sabotaged and discovered new ways to falsify the machine's records.

Question A commercial driver's license (CDL) is a driver's license required to operate large or heavy vehicles.

Question Beginning the the early 20th century, the 1920's saw several major advancements. There was improvement in rural roads which was significant for the time. The diesel engine, which are 25-40% more efficient than gas engines were also a major breakthrough. We also saw the standardization of truck and trailer sizes along with fifth wheel coupling systems. Additionally power assisted brakes and steering developed. By 1933, all states had some form of varying truck weight regulation.

Question A trailer is not very difficult to categorize. In general, it is an unpowered vehicle towed by a powered vehicle. Trailers are most commonly used for the transport of goods and materials. Although some do enjoy recreational usage of trailers as well. 

Question The public idea of the trucking industry in the United States popular culture has gone through many transformations. However, images of the masculine side of trucking are a common theme throughout time. The 1940's first made truckers popular, with their songs and movies about truck drivers. Then in the 1950's they were depicted as heroes of the road, living a life of freedom on the open road. Trucking culture peaked in the 1970's as they were glorified as modern days cowboys, outlaws, and rebels. Since then the portrayal has come with a more negative connotation as we see in the 1990's. Unfortunately, the depiction of truck drivers went from such a positive depiction to that of troubled serial killers.

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 All cars must pass some sort of emission check, such as a smog check to ensure safety. Similarly, trucks are subject to noise emission requirement, which is emanating from the U.S. Noise Control Act. This was intended to protect the public from noise health side effects. The loud noise is due to the way trucks contribute disproportionately to roadway noise. This is primarily due to the elevated stacks and intense tire and aerodynamic noise characteristics.

Question The year 1611 marked an important time for trucks, as that is when the word originated. The usage of "truck" referred to the small strong wheels on ships' cannon carriages. Further extending its usage in 1771, it came to refer to carts for carrying heavy loads. In 1916 it became shortened, calling it a "motor truck". While since the 1930's its expanded application goes as far as to say "motor-powered load carrier".

Question There are certain characteristics of a truck that makes it an "off-road truck". They generally standard, extra heavy-duty highway-legal trucks. Although legal, they have off-road features like front driving axle and special tires for applying it to tasks such as logging and construction. The purpose-built off-road vehicles are unconstrained by weighing limits, such as the Libherr T 282B mining truck.

Question Trailer 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.

Question AMSA wanted to help consumers avoid untrustworthy or illegitimate movers. In January 2008, AMSA created the ProMover certification program for its members. As a member, you must have federal interstate operating authority. Members are also required to pass an annual criminal back check, be licensed by the FMCSA, and agree to abide by ethical standards. This would include honesty in advertising and in business transaction with customers. Each must also sign a contract committing to adhere to applicable Surface Transportation Board and FMCSA regulations. AMSA also takes into consideration and examines ownership. They are very strict, registration with state corporation commissions. This means that the mover must maintain at least a satisfactory rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). As one can imagine, those that pass are authorized to display the ProMove logo on the websites and in marketing materials. However, those that fail will be expelled from the program (and AMSA) if they cannot correct discrepancies during probation.

Question The FMCSA is a well-known division of the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT). It is generally responsible for the enforcement of FMCSA regulations. The driver of a CMV must keep a record of working hours via a log book. This record must reflect the total number of hours spent driving and resting, as well as the time at which the change of duty status occurred. In place of a log book, a motor carrier may choose to keep track of their hours using an electronic on-board recorder (EOBR). This automatically records the amount of time spent driving the vehicle.

Question The definition of business logistics can be difficult to understand. Logistics can be simply put as a means of management that plans, implements, and controls the efficiency of the business. The notion of business logistics incorporates all sectors of the industry. It is used as a means to manage the fruition of project life cycles, supply chains, and resultant efficiency.

Question

As the American Interstate Highway System began to expand in the 1950's, the trucking industry began to take over a large market share. That is, a large share of the transportation of goods throughout the country. Before this era, trains had been relied on to transport the bulk of the goods cross country or state to state. The Interstate Highway System was influential as it allows for merchandise to travel door to door with ease. Since then, truckload carriers have taken advantage of the interstate system, especially when performing a long distance move. Typically, they bring the merchandise from one distribution center of the country to another part of the country. The increase in truckload freight transportation has reduced the time it takes to transport the goods. Whether the freight was manufactured or produced for the different areas internationally, the time it takes to transport goods has decreased dramatically.
 

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 1950's were quite different than the years to come. They were more likely to be considered "Knights of the Road", if you will, for helping stranded travelers. In these times truck drivers were envied and were viewed as an opposition to the book "The Organization Man". Bestseller in 1956, author William H.

Yet, there were attempts to bring back the factory style efficiency, such as using tachnographs. Although most attempts resulted in little success. Drivers routinely sabotaged and discovered new ways to falsify the machine's records.

Question The 1980s were full of happening things, but in 1982 a Southern California truck driver gained short-lived fame. His name was Larry Walters, also known as "Lawn Chair Larry", for pulling a crazy stunt. He ascended to a height of 16,000 feet (4,900 m) by attaching helium balloons to a lawn chair, hence the name. Walters claims he only intended to remain floating near the ground and was shocked when his chair shot up at a rate of 1,000 feet (300 m) per minute. The inspiration for such a stunt Walters claims his poor eyesight for ruining his dreams to become an Air Force pilot.

Question 1941 was a tough era to live through. Yet, President Roosevelt appointed a special committee to explore the idea of a "national inter-regional highway" system. Unfortunately, the committee's progress came to a halt with the rise of the World War II. After the war was over, the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1944 authorized the designation of what are not termed 'Interstate Highways'. However, he did not include any funding program to build such highways. With limited resources came limited progress until President Dwight D. Eisenhower came along in 1954. He renewed interest in the 1954 plan. Although, this began and long and bitter debate between various interests. Generally, the opposing sides were considering where such funding would come from such as rail, truck, tire, oil, and farm groups. All who would overpay for the new highways and how.

Question A Ministry of Transport (or) Transportation is responsible for transportation within a country. Administration usually falls upon the Minister for Transport. The term may also be applied to the departments or other government agencies administering transport in a nation who do not use ministers. There are various and vast responsibilities for agencies to oversee such as road safety. Others may include civil aviation, maritime transport, rail transport and so on. They continue to develop government transportation policy and organize public transit. All while trying to maintain and construct infrastructural projects. Some ministries have additional responsibilities in related policy areas as mentioned above.

Question Driver's licensing has coincided throughout the European Union in order to for the complex rules to all member states. Driving a vehicle weighing more than 7.5 tons (16,535 lb) for commercial purposes requires a certain license. This specialist licence type varies depending on the use of the vehicle and number of seat. Licences first acquired after 1997, the weight was reduced to 3,500 kilograms (7,716 lb), not including trailers.

Question In the United States and Canada, the cost for long-distance moves is generally determined by a few factors. The first is the weight of the items to be moved and the distance it will go. Cost is also based on how quickly the items are to be moved, as well as the time of the year or month which the move occurs. In the United Kingdom and Australia, it's quite different. They base price on the volume of the items as opposed to their weight. Keep in mind some movers may offer flat rate pricing.
