They didn't squander at whatever time beginning and in the event that they found any issues with my furniture, they guided it out toward me. They moved rapidly with reason and were worried about my fulfillment along the way. I have as of now prescribed them to other people who re hoping to move and will keep on doing as such.

If I had a choice, I would give this company a -1 star rating. The most unprofessional and dishonest service. They provided and quote but did not abide by it which caused an excessive charges for extra square footage. Careless packaging of our items, multiple items were damaged upon arrival and upon further inspection. Management was unprofessional and used vulgar language on the phone. We were bullied and threatened to pay additional fees or they were going to lock the truck and drive away with our items. They also have their drivers drive more than the allotted government time. Our driver drove 20 hours straight to reach the destination. Please do not use this moving company!

Do NOT use this carrier. The driver who picked our car did not speak English and asked us to sign a blank screen on his cell phone. When we asked what we were signing, he was unable to explain. Our car was already on his truck, so he literally drove off with it while we were trying to get help from the company on our phone. The driver clearly transported something INSIDE the car, as there were interior damages when the car arrived. The company won't take responsibility for the damages because they forged our signatures on the drop off/pick up checklist. Beyond irresponsible, this carrier does illegal and damaging activity. DO NOT USE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Take your business elsewhere.

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

The decade of the 70s saw the heyday of truck driving, and the dramatic rise in the popularity of "trucker culture". Truck drivers were romanticized as modern-day cowboys and outlaws (and this stereotype persists even today). This was due in part to their use of citizens' band (CB) radio to relay information to each other regarding the locations of police officers and transportation authorities. Plaid shirts, trucker hats, CB radios, and using CB slang were popular not just with drivers but among the general public.

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.

“The association of truckers with cowboys and related myths was perhaps most obvious during the urban-cowboy craze of the late 1970s, a period that saw middle-class urbanites wearing cowboy clothing and patronizing simulated cowboy nightclubs. During this time, at least four truck driver movies appeared, CB radio became popular, and truck drivers were prominently featured in all forms of popular media.” — Lawrence J. Ouellet
