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

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 In 1991 the film "Thelma & Louise" premiered, rapidly becoming a well known movie. Throughout the movie, a dirty and abrasive truck driver harasses the two women during chance encounters. Author Michael Dunne describes this minor character as "fat and ignorant" and "a lustful fool blinded by a delusion of male superiority". Thelma and Louise exact their revenge by feigning interest in him and then blowing up his tanker truck full of gas.

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 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.
