Moving with Unified Van Lines
THE COMPANY OPENING HOURS
Monday Thru-Friday: 9:00-18:00
When they came to pick us up, they arrived on time and the crew that was sent to us was more than ready to work with us. They did everything from packing and loading to unloading. By the end of the move, I was very happy that nothing was damaged and all my possessions were unharmed.
The team was very efficient and fast and wrapped all of my expensive furniture so well, in order to avoid any damage.I am very happy with Unified Van Lines and would recommend them to everyone
Thanks to Unified I feel a lot better. My move was scheduled for a Saturday and given a window of noon to 6pm. I got a call at 8AM asking if I was ready (I wasn't). So I got another call at noon and by then I was ready.They showed up, packed everything I had (one really thing I liked is not having to pack up my clothes on hangers b/c they just take the hangers and hang them on a makeshift closet made out of a cardboard box).
I am very impressed with their staff's professionalism. Follow-up to confirm booking & emails & telephone calls. Hopefully, knock on wood, things go smoothly. Have a pretty small moving job & hopefully it'll be done quickly.
Crew were fast and efficient! Thanks for your hard work and patience! Will definitely pass on the word about this crew! Thank you!
It was our first time using professional movers and I can't believe how easy. Team was fast, efficient and polite. We are happy to recommend them to everyone and will likely use them again.
We signed a lease and wanted to move two days later.
The movers, 3 young men were polite and very efficient! They had us moved out and in within the 3 hour minimum and went ABOVE and BEYOND! To help us out! I would never use anyone else!Thank you so much Unified Van Lines!
Our move was longer than what was charged but this was of course waived. That was very nice of them to call us for a follow-up regarding our review of Unified Van Lines. While my boyfriend and I do not intend to move anytime soon, we would like to use them again.
One of the simplest, most straightforward moving companies I've ever used. Planned my in-city move less than a week out, and was able to get both the date and times I wanted. Answered some basic questions to get started -- not a time-consuming questionnaire like many other movers and had everything confirmed within a day. Very impressed.
Had a lovely intro chat with Unified Van Lines. They was speedy, professional, kind, and thorough. The moving rates seem reasonable and they were able to accommodate a fairly quick request. I'll update this review post-move with more details.We had a great experience with the move day-of, as well. Movers were timely, thorough, and courteous.
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.
The moving industry in the United States was deregulated with the Household Goods Transportation Act of 1980. This act allowed interstate movers to issue binding or fixed estimates for the first time. Doing so opened the door to hundreds of new moving companies to enter the industry. This led to an increase in competition and soon movers were no longer competing on services but on price. As competition drove prices lower and decreased what were already slim profit margins, "rogue" movers began hijacking personal property as part of a new scam. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) enforces Federal consumer protection regulations related to the interstate shipment of household goods (i.e., household moves that cross State lines). FMCSA has held this responsibility since 1999, and the Department of Transportation has held this responsibility since 1995 (the Interstate Commerce Commission held this authority prior to its termination in 1995).
The interstate moving industry in the United States maintains regulation by the FMCSA, which is part of the USDOT.With only a small staff (fewer than 20 people) available to patrol hundreds of moving companies, enforcement is difficult.As a result of such a small staff, there arein many cases, no regulations that qualify moving companies as 'reliable'. Without this guarantee, it is difficult to a consumer to make a choice. Although, moving companies can provide and often display a DOT license.
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 USDOT (USDOT or DOT)is considereda 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 wasofficiallyestablished 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 thisstates 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.
