Excalibur Moving & Storage
Moving with Excalibur Moving & Storage
I had an outstanding experience with Excalibur movers. I hired them to move my 3 townhouse, it was 3 levels which made the move a bit difficult. The movers did a great job protecting my furniture and the walls, they were very efficient and courteous with our needs. I paid exactly like what i was quoted by the estimator that was in my house prior the move. I will 100% recommend this company to my friends and family.
This is my second time using Excalibur movers. These guys are awesome, Their crews are professionals and efficient. Rates are fair and includes all packing material. I will use them again in the future and will recommend them to anyone that need a good moving company
Excalibur is truly in a league of their own. Having several experiences in the past with moving companies that just gave me a headache I was a little apprehensive about choosing the right company. Excalibur met all my expectations and exceeded. Professional, great customer service and handled my move with care. I can't rave enough! Thanks Excalibur, if I ever move again, I know who to count on for quality and great service
These folks were astonishing they went ahead time and they worked rapidly. They are affable, useful and made inquiries on things-such as how I'd like things masterminded or what required additional consideration. When I move once more, I will be calling them. Incredible folks!
The Motor Carrier Act, passed by Congress in 1935, replace the code of competition.The authorization the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) place was to regulate the trucking industry. Since then the ICC has been long abolished,however, it did quite a lot during its time.Based on the recommendations given by the ICC, Congress enacted the first hours of services regulation in 1938. This limited driving hours of truck and bus drivers.In 1941, the ICC reported that inconsistent weight limitation imposed by the states cause problems to effective interstate truck commerce.
The decade of the 70s saw the heyday of truck driving, and the dramatic rise in the popularity of "trucker culture". Truck drivers were romanticized as modern-day cowboys and outlaws (and this stereotype persists even today). This was due in part to their use of citizens' band (CB) radio to relay information to each other regarding the locations of police officers and transportation authorities. Plaid shirts, trucker hats, CB radios, and using CB slang were popular not just with drivers but among the general public.
A semi-trailer is almost exactly what it sounds like, it is a trailer without a front axle.Proportionally, its weightis supported bytwo factors. The weight falls upon a road tractor or by a detachable front axle assembly, known as a dolly. Generally, a semi-traileris equippedwith legs, known in the industry as "landing gear". This means it canbe loweredto support it when itis uncoupled. In the United States, a trailer may not exceed a length of 57 ft (17.37 m) on interstate highways.However, it is possible to link two smaller trailers together to reach a length of 63 ft (19.20 m).
A business route (occasionally city route) in the United States and Canada is a short special route connected to a parent numbered highway at its beginning, then routed through the central business district of a nearby city or town, and finally reconnecting with the same parent numbered highway again at its end.
In the United States and Canada, the cost for long-distance moves is generally determined by a few factors. The first is the weight of the items tobe movedand the distance it will go. Cost is also based on howquicklythe items are tobe moved, as well as the time of the year or month which the move occurs. In the United Kingdom and Australia, it's quite different. They base price on the volume of the items as opposed to their weight. Keep in mind some movers may offer flat rate pricing.
