The movers were on time and worked efficiently throughout the day. They communicated with me several times during my move to make sure they were doing things correctly. They really made my move effortless! A pleasure to work with and I would use them again.

Citywide Movers have moved myself and other members of my family numerous times and have always done a great job. They go above and beyond in caring for my furniture and making everything easy. I highly recommend their moving and storage service

No, no, no! Don't consider using Citywide Movers!!!

No, no, no! Don't consider using Citywide Movers!!! I contracted with Citywide Movers to move my daughters bedroom furniture and approximately 9 boxes of personal belongings to N.C. where she started a new job on August 1st. Prior to and during the booking process, I was assured (by Nate and Sheila) that the furniture would be delivered in 3-5 days. I made it VERY clear that this was crucially important. We originally scheduled the move for Friday July 28th but I was contacted by Citywide (Sheila) and told that they had a truck leaving for North Carolina on Thursday July 27th and if they could pick up my daughters thing that day, it would ensure delivery by August 1st (or within the 3-5 day time slot). As a result of that, we then rescheduled for Thursday, July 27th. Just as an aside, the movers came 1.5 hours late for a move requiring a scheduled elevator reservation that was supposed to end after 1 hour and 45 minutes. In addition, they charged us 40% over the price quoted even the the load size was as stated and properly packed by us. The furniture was delivered almost one month later on August 22! When I called Citywide from Durham on July 31st to check on the arrival time, I was informed by Travis that the load did not make the truck and they didn't know when another truck would be going in that direction. We'll keep you posted. Needless to say, I was furious and have followed up frequently since then. I even asked that they find a driver to take the stuff by itself to North Carolina. Of course they told me that it would cost quite a bit more and I said, OK, get me a price. I never heard back. I demanded on about August 14th that my daughter's things be returned to my possession so that I could hire a legitimate mover to take them to North Carolina. I was told by Travis at Citywide said that they aren't allowed to do that. The contract requires us to take you things to North Carolina. In the meantime, while they held her possessions hostage, my daughter slept on the floor, no lights, clothes, required MEDICINES, kitchenware, etc. As stated above, the furniture finally arrived on August 22 damaged! Two desks were totally ruined and had to be thrown away, the drawers on the dresser no longer close, and the upholstered bed frame was very badly soiled. I filed a damage complaint form as required by Citywide movers and asked for $800 in damages which was an understatement of the damages incurred. Citywide offered me and insulting $97! In addition, they won't pay the $97 unless I remove my online complaints!!! No wonder they don't have more bad reviews! Stay away from this dishonest, unethical and incompetent mover!

I relocated recently from IL to GA. Though it was not the first time for me but I eventually experienced a perfect move for the first time and that was possible only because of this company. Their sales executive offered me the best possible deal and the movers pulled out a miracle. They were running ahead than the schedule, provided extra bit of support, which was not mentioned in the initial quote, safely delivered my goods and also charged less than the quote. I call it the ultimate service. Thanks guys!

Absolutely terrific in every way! I found and booked Citywide Movers one week before my move, and it seems I got lucky. The men were professional, hard working, accommodating and their friendly approach actually made the horrific process of moving quite fun! When booking things like this, I'm usually suspicious that I may be working with people who are untrustworthy or unmotivated, especially in the knowledge that I'm not paying for the most expensive service in town, but this company was neither of those things. I would recommend them to anyone.

Citywide is awesome! Excellent customer service, spot on attention to all details of my move, and most importantly careful with absolutely no damage to my high value and some fragile personal items. My crew arrived on time and make the moving experience quick and simple. I will definitely recommend them for any future moving needs to any friend or colleague.

I urgently needed to move some office equipment. I called in just before closing hours on Saturday and was happy to find out that there was a crew available for Sunday morning. Move went very well. Movers were able to put all cubicles in place together with all the office furniture. My office was all good to go for Monday morning! Thank you for your hard work!

These guys were so awesome! I am never, ever moving myself again. They were so fast AND careful. Not a thing was broken and we were moved into our new place within a matter of a few hours. They were extremely nice and personable as well, and very reasonably priced. Hopefully my next move won't be for many years, but when I do I will definitely call Citywide Movers again.

I used citywide for a recent move and they were phenomenal. Everyone was extremely nice and efficient and took all the stress out of the move entirely. They quoted me a rate that was fair and below others and even completed the job early. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who needs to move.

Very easy move with this company. They gave me the lowest estimate so I went with them for the move. They disassembled and wrapped everything carefully, so nothing was damaged. They were very fast, only took a few hours to move our whole apartment. Professional. The final price ended up being slightly lower than the estimate so I was happy.

I am writing this one hour after my move, because I was so impressed by these guys. They arrived early, worked hard and fast, went above and beyond, and completed my move in a full hour less time than I had estimated. I wouldn't think twice about hiring them again and am going to recommend them to all of my friends.

The 3 movers showed on time, were perfect gentleman and gentle movers taking very good care of all furniture and art.

Just a fantastic company! We used Citywide Movers this year because my wife had used them last year and loved them. They wrapped every single piece of furniture and even provided wardrobe boxes to borrow. They clearly care about performing a quality job and taking care of your stuff. They are super respectful and pleasant. I just can't say enough good things about these guys!

I was quoted one rate by Nate, and sadly I could not supervise the move due to a medical emergency. So my family did and the movers doubled the rate. On top of that the move was right across the street, so why would It double so quickly. I had 25 boxes in the initial quote to be moved, half of them were moved. So now I'm looking at to asking family to help me move the rest. Also they...

So beware, I really wish I could've booked the moving company I wanted the only reason I didn't is they were totally booked.

In many countries, driving a truck requires a special driving license. The requirements and limitations vary with each different jurisdiction.

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. 

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.

A moving scam is a scam by a moving company in which the company provides an estimate, loads the goods, then states a much higher price to deliver the goods, effectively holding the goods as lien but does this without do a change of order or revised estimate.

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.

Compliance, Safety, and Accountability (CSA) are fundamental to the FMCSA's compliance program. The purpose of the CSA program is to oversee and focus on motor carriers' safety performance. To enforce such safety regulations, the CSA conducts roadside inspections and crash investigations. The program issues violations when instances of noncompliance with CSA safety regulations are exposed.   Unfortunately, the CSA's number of safety investigation teams and state law enforcement partners are rather small in comparison to the millions of CMV companies and commercial driver license (CDL) holders. A key factor in the CSA program is known as the Safety Measurement System (SMS). This system relies on data analysis to identify unsafe companies to arrange them for safety interventions. SMS is incredibly helpful to CSA in finding and holding companies accountable for safety performance.  

The American Association of State Highway Officials (AASHO) was organized and founded on December 12, 1914. On November 13, 1973, the name was altered to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials. This slight change in name reflects a broadened scope of attention towards all modes of transportation. Despite the implications of the name change, most of the activities it is involved in still gravitate towards highways.

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.

In the United States, the term 'full trailer' is used for a freight trailer supported by front and rear axles and pulled by a drawbar. This term is slightly different in Europe, where a full trailer is known as an A-frame drawbar trail. A full trailer is 96 or 102 in (2.4 or 2.6 m) wide and 35 or 40 ft (11 or 12 m) long.

A moving company, removalist, or van line are all companies that help people as well as other businesses to move their good from one place to another. With many inclusive services for relocation like packing, loading, moving, unloading, unpacking and arranging of items can all be taken care of for you. Some services may include cleaning the place and have warehousing facilities.

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).

"Six Day on the Road" was a trucker hit released in 1963 by country music singer Dave Dudley. Bill Malone is an author as well as a music historian. He notes the song "effectively captured both the boredom and the excitement, as well as the swaggering masculinity that often accompanied long distance trucking."

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 40 million United States citizens have moved annually over the last decade. Of those people who have moved in the United States, 84.5% of them have moved within their own state, 12.5% have moved to another state, and 2.3% have moved to another country.

Trucks and cars have much in common mechanically as well as ancestrally. One link between them is the steam-powered fardier Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot, who built it in 1769. Unfortunately for him, steam trucks were not really common until the mid 1800's. While looking at this practically, it would be much harder to have a steam truck. This is mostly due to the fact that the roads of the time were built for horse and carriages. Steam trucks were left to very short hauls, usually from a factory to the nearest railway station. In 1881, the first semi-trailer appeared, and it was in fact towed by a steam tractor manufactured by De Dion-Bouton. Steam-powered trucks were sold in France and in the United States, apparently until the eve of World War I. Also, at the beginning of World War II in the United Kingdom, they were known as 'steam wagons'.

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.

A semi-trailer is almost exactly what it sounds like, it is a trailer without a front axle. Proportionally, its weight is supported by two factors. The weight falls upon a road tractor or by a detachable front axle assembly, known as a dolly. Generally, a semi-trailer is equipped with legs, known in the industry as "landing gear". This means it can be lowered to support it when it is uncoupled. In the United States, a trailer may not exceed a length of 57 ft (17.37 m) on interstate highways. However, it is possible to link two smaller trailers together to reach a length of 63 ft (19.20 m).

Popular among campers is the use of lightweight trailers, such as aerodynamic trailers. These can be towed by a small car, such as the BMW Air Camper. They are built with the intent to lower the tow of the vehicle, thus minimizing drag.

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.

A relatable reality t.v. show to the industry is the show Ice Road Truckers, which premiered season 3 on the History Channel in 2009. The show documents the lives of truck drivers working the scary Dalton Highway in Alaska. Following drivers as they compete to see which one of them can haul the most loads before the end of the season. It'll grab you with its mechanical problems that so many have experienced and as you watch them avoid the pitfalls of dangerous and icy roads!

The United States Department of Transportation has become a fundamental necessity in the moving industry. It is the pinnacle of the industry, creating and enforcing regulations for the sake of safety for both businesses and consumers alike. However, it is notable to appreciate the history of such a powerful department. The functions currently performed by the DOT were once enforced by the Secretary of Commerce for Transportation. In 1965, Najeeb Halaby, administrator of the Federal Aviation Adminstration (FAA), had an excellent suggestion. He spoke to the current President Lyndon B. Johnson, advising that transportation be elevated to a cabinet level position. He continued, suggesting that the FAA be folded or merged, if you will, into the DOT. Clearly, the President took to Halaby's fresh ideas regarding transportation, thus putting the DOT into place.

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.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issues Hours of Service regulations. At the same time, they govern the working hours of anyone operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in the United States. Such regulations apply to truck drivers, commercial and city bus drivers, and school bus drivers who operate CMVs. With these rules in place, the number of daily and weekly hours spent driving and working is limited. The FMCSA regulates the minimum amount of time drivers must spend resting between driving shifts. In regards to intrastate commerce, the respective state's regulations apply.

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.

The American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA) is a non-profit trade association. AMSA represents members of the professional moving industry primarily based in the United States. The association consists of approximately 4,000 members. They consist of van lines, their agents, independent movers, forwarders, and industry suppliers. However, AMSA does not represent the self-storage industry.

Light trucks are classified this way because they are car-sized, yet in the U.S. they can be no more than 6,300 kg (13,900 lb). These are used by not only used by individuals but also businesses as well. In the UK they may not weigh more than 3,500 kg (7,700 lb) and are authorized to drive with a driving license for cars. Pickup trucks, popular in North America, are most seen in North America and some regions of Latin America, Asia, and Africa. Although Europe doesn't seem to follow this trend, where the size of the commercial vehicle is most often made as vans.

Known as a truck in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, it is essentially a motor vehicle designed to transport cargo. Otherwise known as a lorry in the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, and Indian Subcontinent. Trucks vary not only in their types, but also in size, power, and configuration, the smallest being mechanically like an automobile. Commercial trucks may be very large and powerful, configured to mount specialized equipment. These are necessary in the case of fire trucks, concrete mixers, and suction excavators etc.
