THE COMPANY OPENING HOURS

Great move!! As someone who moves a lot, it's important that things go smoothly. My team was courteous, quick, and took good care of my things. Thanks
Wow! All three of our movers rocked. They cared and had wonderful attitudes. We also had a weather delay and they adjusted the move to make it safe for all. Thank you!
The team that moved my stuff from Frisco to Dallas did an over the top excellent job. I could not be more happy with the process from start to finish. Thank you for the great work.
This is the second move we've used with Unified Van Lines. I was provided a quote and was very thorough. We received a lower quote from another company but they explained our belongings could easily spill into two trucks. We opted for a second truck and it made the move go much quicker and provided us more flexibility since we were on a tight timeline. We ended up finishing in less time and for much less than we thought. Very nice and courteous movers.
The company has very polite people working for them and they always offer help and try to find the cheapest and the most convenient solution to all your problems. And I thank the perfect team for helping me with the moving.
Our movers were very respectful in every way. Very accommodating and made sure we were happy with their service. Thank you
The office staff was courteous and very thorough as we talked about pricing, estimates, and scheduling the date. We were very comfortable with the movers in our home and handling our furnishings. They worked efficiently, were kind to my small children, and treated our property like it was their own. We definitely recommend Unified Van Lines. Would we hire them again? Absolutely!
Guys took good care of us. Furniture was moved without a problem. Put boxes where we asked. Pretty much met the time estimated.
I used to think that a company would never do the moving well. I was wrong. Unified Van Lines helped me to understand that and I am glad I found such a great company. It's great when some other people do the job for you.
When I called Unified Van Lines, I liked the way they communicated with me and the way they answered my questions. They gave me the plan of the moving. They have their style and they have the techniques and equipment and so many other great things. They were great in action!
Receiving nation attention during the 1960's and 70's, songs and movies about truck driving were major hits. Finding solidarity, truck drivers participated in widespread strikes. Truck drivers from all over opposed the rising cost of fuel. Not to mention this is during the energy crises of 1873 and 1979. In 1980 the Motor Carrier Actdrasticallyderegulated the trucking industry. Since then trucking has come to dominate the freight industry in the latter part of the 20th century. This coincided with what are now known as 'big-box' stores such as Target or Wal-Mart.
In 1978 Sylvester Stallone starred in the film "F.I.S.T.". The story islooselybased on the 'Teamsters Union'. This union is a labor union which includes truck drivers as well as its then president, Jimmy Hoffa.
Medium trucks are larger than light but smaller than heavy trucks. In the US, theyare definedas weighing between 13,000 and 33,000 pounds (6,000 and 15,000 kg). For the UK and the EU, the weight is between 3.5 and 7.5 tons (3.9 and 8.3 tons).Local delivery and public service (dump trucks, garbage trucks, and fire-fighting trucks) are around this size.
The term "lorry" has an ambiguous origin, but it is likely that its roots were in the rail transport industry.This is where the wordis knownto havebeen usedin 1838 to refer to a type of truck (a freight car as in British usage)specificallya large flat wagon. It may derive from the verb lurry, which means to pull or tug, of uncertain origin.It's expanded meaning was much more exciting as "self-propelled vehicle for carrying goods", and has been in usage since 1911.Previously, unbeknownst to most, the word "lorry"was usedfor a fashion of big horse-drawn goods wagon.
