I would hire these guys again and HIGHLY recommend them. Scheduling was a breeze and communication was at an all time high. Their truck and equipment got me from a 2nd story loft into another rear unit with winding stairs in a instant. EXCELLENT WORK.Thank you!
The guys even hung around and helped us put little felt pads on the legs of all the furniture so it wouldn't scratch the hardwood floors in our new place. I gave them a big tip when they left...and they definitely deserved it! Will certainly use them again!
i've moved in town and across the country. I did two moves of 100 miles with these guys and you won't find a better company and this includes their pricing. Call me if you want to hear my thoughts directly.Thanks
Unified Van Lines are amazing!!! Moving my daughter into school this was a last min request to get a bed and pick up a mattress. They had had a full day but said they would help us if nobody else could and they did. Really 100% about customer service!! Thank you. I highly recommend using them!!
They arrived 5 minutes early and they:
- super professional
- amazingly efficient
- came with dollies, moving boxes for clothes, smart pack, etc.
- very fast at what the do
- treated my stuff better than I would during a move
- very clear and fair pricing
Everything came to my new place like I was moving it myself, not even a dent on furniture. They worked as fast as they could and I'm absolutely happy. Wardrobe for clothes is cool. I'd definitely use their services again if I need it in the future.
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".
The American Trucking Associations initiated in 1985 with the intent to improve the industry's image. With public opinion declining the association tried numerous moves. One such move was changing the name of the "National Truck Rodeo" to the "National Driving Championship". This was due to the fact that the word rodeo seemed to imply recklessness and reckless driving.
The USDOT (USDOT or DOT) is considered a federal Cabinet department within the U.S. government. Clearly, this department concerns itself with all aspects of transportation with safety as a focal point. The DOT was officially established by an act of Congress on October 15, 1966, beginning its operation on April 1, 1967. Superior to the DOT, the United States Secretary of Transportation governs the department. The mission of the DOT is to "Serve the United States by ensuring a fast, safe, efficient, accessible, and convenient transportation system that meets our vital national interests and enhances the quality of life for the American people, today and into the future." Essentially this states how important it is to improve all types of transportation as a way to enhance both safety and life in general etc. It is important to note that the DOT is not in place to hurt businesses, but to improve our "vital national interests" and our "quality of life". The transportation networks are in definite need of such fundamental attention. Federal departments such as the USDOT are key to this industry by creating and enforcing regulations with intentions to increase the efficiency and safety of transportation.
The Federal-Aid Highway Amendments of 1974 established a federal maximum gross vehicle weight of 80,000 pounds (36,000 kg). It also introduced a sliding scale of truck weight-to-length ratios based on the bridge formula. Although, they did not establish a federal minimum weight limit. By failing to establish a federal regulation, six contiguous in the Mississippi Valley rebelled. Becoming known as the "barrier state", they refused to increase their Interstate weight limits to 80,000 pounds. Due to this, the trucking industry faced a barrier to efficient cross-country interstate commerce.
