Moving with Unified Van Lines
Amazing Moving Company-Very professional and Friendly movers From start to finish, these guys made our move completely painless. They responded to my quote request the same day (within a couple hours, actually), showed up on time for the move, and the movers themselves were polite
I was thrilled with this move and moving or furniture within the house. 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 when we sell the house. God bless all of you!
I had a great day of move with Unified Moving. I knew these guys were well but they just exceeded our expectation. The strong guys arrived on time and worked like that is nothing to them. We had so many furniture and delicate antiques.
They were very polite and courteous , would highly recommend this moving company. Their reputation exceeds them. Would refer to anyone looking to move with a company you can trust to do the job.
The movers were so hard working. They said they might go over on time because there was a little difficulty moving my couch but they finished up right on the quote time!
In the United States, shipments larger than about 7,000 kg (15,432 lb)are classifiedas truckload freight (TL). It is more efficient and affordable for a large shipment to have exclusive use of one larger trailer. Thisis opposedto having to share space on a smaller Less than Truckload freight carrier.
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).
In 1991 the film "Thelma & Louise" premiered,rapidlybecoming a well known movie.Throughout the movie, a dirty and abrasive truck driver harasses the two women during chance encounters.Author Michael Dunne describes this minor character as "fat and ignorant" and "a lustful fool blinded by a delusion of male superiority".Thelma and Louise exact their revenge by feigning interest in him and then blowing up his tanker truck full of gas.
Released in 1998, the film Black Dog featured Patrick Swayze as a truck driver who made it out of prison.However, his life of crime continued, as hewas manipulatedinto the transportation of illegal guns.Writer Scott Doviak has described the movie as a "high-octane riff on White Line Fever" as well as "a throwback to the trucker movies of the 70s".
There are various versions of a moving scam, but itbasicallybegins with a prospective client. Then the client starts to contact a moving company to request a cost estimate. In today's market, unfortunately, this often happens online or via phone calls. Soessentiallya customer is contacting them for a quote when the moving company may not have a license. These moving sales people are salesman prone to quoting sometimes low.Even though usually reasonable prices with no room for the movers to provide a quality service if it is a broker.
