Moving with Monster Movers
Overall great movers - recommended by a friend and glad I used them. The protected all furniture and walls and floors.
Great choice if you are looking for Boston movers - used for a local apartment move after a successful long distance move from New York. Great service ever and even better prices. Compared to other highly regarded movers in the area - I would estimate they are about 10-20% less expensive.
I interviewed dozens of Boston movers for two moves that I had - one was a personal move of my apartment in Westborough MA to Port Chester, NY the other was for my 5 person office from Cambridge to NYC. Both long distance moves were exactly as I expected and I will refer them to others. Both moving crews were exceptional and were very professional. They were able to secure insurance certificates that my management companies required without additional charges and at the last minute. Office staff did a great job following up and making sure all of my questions were answered in a timely manner.
I've used Monster twice and recommended to friends who also used them. In fact, we were coordinating moving furniture between three different houses on different days, and MM handled all of it very well. We had only one incident of damage (a piece of glass for a tabletop which cracked) and they quickly replaced it, no hassle, no questions, it was just replaced. I was traveling for work and my wife managed one of the moves. She had no issues with the movers and they even set up some of the furniture for her, due to the size and weight.
They were a cost effective solution and were available on short notice. We did tip them (generously) but even with the tip, they were far less expensive than other services we spoke with.
I'd recommend them and use them again for my next move.
Great movers. Used for a local move Boston to Cambridge. No damage, friendly people.
As we've learned the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 was crucial in the construction of the Interstate Highway System. Described as an interconnected network of the controlled-access freeway. It also allowed larger trucks to travel at higher speeds through rural and urban areas alike. This act was also the first to allow the first federal largest gross vehicle weight limits for trucks, set at 73,208 pounds (33,207 kg). The very same year, Malcolm McLean pioneered modern containerized intermodal shipping. This allowed for the more efficient transfer of cargo between truck, train, and ships.
Medium trucks are larger than light but smaller than heavy trucks. In the US, they are defined as 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 definition of business logistics can be difficult to understand. Logistics can be simply put as a means of management that plans, implements, and controls the efficiency of the business. The notion of business logistics incorporates all sectors of the industry. It is used as a means to manage the fruition of project life cycles, supply chains, and resultant efficiency.
In 1991 the film "Thelma & Louise" premiered, rapidly becoming 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.
