Moving with Unified Van Lines
Fantastic movers and great company to do business with! They have an excellent customer service, the moving team showed up right on time and were friendly, fast, and efficient. Great experience in general!
They handled my furniture carefully and were very communicative throughout.They provided wardrobe boxes, tape, shrink wrapped. They finished up, and quickly got moving to the next location. I definitely recommend this company, and will hire them again the next time I move.
I must say that this company has an excellent service! Their customer rep was amazing -she answered all my questions, gave me useful tips and supported me during the moving process.
Our crew did a great job, they showed up on time and were extremely professional. From scheduling to move day, this was the smoothest moving experience my family has ever had. I highly recommend them for moving
My overall experience was very positive. The customer support was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The movers were attentive to my needs, quick and professional. None of my belongings were broken or scratched. Great job! Thanks!
Have had nothing but good experiences with Unified Van Lines. We hired them them for a large-scale office relocation and all their services were great. We will use them again for our next seasonal move. Highly recommend these guys!
I contacted Unified Van Lines and was pleasantly surprised with my experience from the moment I spoke to their customer representative to the final delivery. Everything was simply amazing. The guys were quick, careful and extremely professional.
They helped me out so much during my last move. I was busy running errands while they meticulously packed everything I own and loaded them onto their van. I received the delivery on time and believe me when I tell you that everything I own was delivered in perfect condtion.
They explained the forms which were short and concise. They worked without a break from the time they arrived, till the time they left our home and till the final drop-off. Not one piece was damaged. Not one wall scratched.
I was so happy with this move. I was also able to donate an organ that I had been told could not be donated, but your crew recommending we take it to Good Will. They were fast, kind, and thorough. I will definitely use them again.
Their packing skills were amazing and they were very prompt. They followed my every instruction and never complained or asked for a break. Not even a glass was broken when they made the delivery. I have to commend them for being so efficient and hardworking.
“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

As of January 1, 2000, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)was establishedas its own separate administration within the U.S. Department of Transportation. This came about under the "Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999".The FMCSAis basedin Washington, D.C., employing more than 1,000 people throughout all 50 States, including in the District of Columbia.Their staff dedicates themselves to the improvement of safety among commercial motor vehicles (CMV) and to saving lives.
DOT officers of each state are generally in charge of the enforcement of the Hours of Service (HOS). These are sometimes checked when CMVs pass through weigh stations. Drivers found to be in violation of the HOS canbe forcedto stop driving for a certain period of time. This, in turn, maynegativelyaffect the motor carrier's safety rating. Requests to change the HOS are a source of debate. Unfortunately, many surveysindicatedriversroutinelyget away with violating the HOS.Such facts have started yet another debate on whether motor carriers shouldbe requiredto us EOBRs in their vehicles.Relying on paper-based log books does not always seem to enforce the HOS law put in place for the safety of everyone.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is a division of the USDOT specializing in highway transportation. The agency's major influential activities are generally separated into two different "programs". The first is the Federal-aid Highway Program.This provides financial aid to support the construction, maintenance, and operation of the U.S. highway network.The second program, the Federal Lands Highway Program, shares a similar name with different intentions.The purpose of this program is to improve transportation involving Federal and Tribal lands.They also focus on preserving "national treasures" for the historic and beatific enjoyment for all.
