This company is a great service. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to move.

Very impressive work, these men were incredibly meticulous. They wrap furniture as if it were their own, and it was highly appreciated that they took such great pride in their profession. My wife was as nervous as could be since we had never moved out of state before, but within about an hour of these guys getting started she saw we were in good hands - thank you for that! The price point was binding just as Eric indicated, and all-inclusive, so we had as smooth of an experience as anyone could wish for. John, George, and crew worked their tails off and were extremely pleasant to be around from start to finish. I highly recommend Eric, Best Cost Movers, and staff. Two full trucks to Oregon, fully completed in just 4 days is no easy accomplishment, but they pulled it off without a hitch. Thanks again for everything.

Excellent experience, and wonderful results. This was a very large move to Utah, with lots of large and expensive pieces. Other movers came out to do estimates and all they seemed interested in was fast talking me into signing up with them without much care about going over the specific inventory. The owner Eric at Best Cost Movers came out personally to do my estimate and the very first thing he pointed out was a $3,000.00 grandfather clock in my foyer and said he would be having a 3rd party specialist prep and crate it to ensure it arrived safely. He was so meticulous about what his staff would do and gave me a very detailed process about everything. Impressive, to say the least. Everything went as indicated, and there was not a single thing I could critique negatively. Thank you all for such a terrific service, and the chocolates and candy left for my wife and daughter for Valentine's Day was a very nice personal touch. I will recommend you to anyone that asks!

Very happy! Great attention to detail, and excellent pricing, and exclusive truck for just our move, which we liked.

Question

The trucking industry has made a large historical impact since the early 20th century. It has affected the U.S. both politically as well as economically since the notion has begun. Previous to the invention of automobiles, most freight was moved by train or horse-drawn carriage. Trucks were first exclusively used by the military during World War I.
 
After the war, construction of paved roads increased. As a result, trucking began to achieve significant popularity by the 1930's. Soon after trucking became subject to various government regulation, such as the hours of service. During the later 1950's and 1960's, trucking accelerated due to the construction of the Interstate Highway System. The Interstate Highway System is an extensive network of freeways linking major cities cross country.

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 The United States' Interstate Highway System is full of bypasses and loops with the designation of a three-digit number. Usually beginning with an even digit, it is important to note that this pattern is highly inconsistent. For example, in Des Moines, Iowa the genuine bypass is the main route. More specifically, it is Interstate 35 and Interstate 80, with the loop into downtown Des Moines being Interstate 235. As it is illustrated in this example, they do not always consistently begin with an even number. However, the 'correct' designation is exemplified in Omaha, Nebraska. In Omaha, Interstate 480 traverses the downtown area, which is bypassed by Interstate 80, Interstate 680, and Interstate 95. Interstate 95 then in turn goes through Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Furthermore, Interstate 295 is the bypass around Philadelphia, which leads into New Jersey. Although this can all be rather confusing, it is most important to understand the Interstate Highway System and the role bypasses play.

Question

The FMCSA has established rules to maintain and regulate the safety of the trucking industry. According to FMCSA rules, driving a goods-carrying CMV more than 11 hours or to drive after having been on duty for 14 hours, is illegal. Due to such heavy driving, they need a break to complete other tasks such as loading and unloading cargo, stopping for gas and other required vehicle inspections, as well as non-working duties such as meal and rest breaks. The 3-hour difference between the 11-hour driving limit and 14 hour on-duty limit gives drivers time to take care of such duties. In addition, after completing an 11 to 14 hour on duty period, the driver much be allowed 10 hours off-duty.

Question

The rise of technological development gave rise to the modern trucking industry. There a few factors supporting this spike in the industry such as the advent of the gas-powered internal combustion engine. Improvement in transmissions is yet another source, just like the move away from chain drives to gear drives. And of course the development of the tractor/semi-trailer combination.
 
The first state weight limits for trucks were determined and put in place in 1913. Only four states limited truck weights, from a low of 18,000 pounds (8,200 kg) in Maine to a high of 28,000 pounds (13,000 kg) in Massachusetts. The intention of these laws was to protect the earth and gravel-surfaced roads. In this case, particular damages due to the iron and solid rubber wheels of early trucks. By 1914 there were almost 100,000 trucks on America's roads. As a result of solid tires, poor rural roads, and a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour (24km/h) continued to limit the use of these trucks to mostly urban areas.
