We couldn't be happier with the service we received from Vanguard. We recently had to move from Cambridge, MA to Santa Fe, NM (in the middle of the pandemic, no less!) We weren't sure if a local company would be able to handle this cross-country move, but Vanguard responded to our query within hours. Since in-house visits were impossible because of COVID, Vanguard based their estimate on a FaceTime tour of our apartment and things (the only company to do so; this meant they were also more confident in and committed to their estimate than other moving services we considered). The quote we received was very reasonable and lower than other companies we'd looked at. Tom and his crew showed up on time (wearing PPE) and were extremely professional and friendly. Vanguard was communicative with us throughout the move, they arrived on schedule, and not a single item of ours was damaged in the 35-hour drive. And as a final (unheard of!) surprise, the cost we paid ended up being a little lower than the estimate, since packing and unpacking took less time than they'd predicted. I would recommend this company to anyone with enthusiasm -- they combine the communication and care of a local business with the infrastructure and capacity of a much larger company. Thank you, Tom and Julie, for all your help! You made what could have been a very stressful move so easy for us.

I am EXTREMELY unsatisfied with MacDonald Moving services. They moved our entire house 1 state away and into a storage unit. I was not able to get into the storage because it was so full. However, about a year later when we are pulling out furniture we see that multiple pieces were damaged by MacDonald and tucked away without notification. It was not noted on their paperwork either. The amount that we paid these scam artists makes this entirely unacceptable! Do not, I repeat DO NOT use MacDonald Moving services. They suck!

So many 5 star reviews to read - what could possibly go wrong? Nothing that couldn't have been completely avoided. Maybe my little apartment move wasn't enough for them, so they had to make it more worthwhile to them? I just don't know. It started out with a good estimate. Not the highest one, not the lowest one, just right in the sweet spot. The estimator was friendly, professional and explained everything. So a few days later, after making my comparisons, I called and booked a day of packing and moving the next day after that. Normally I would pack up myself but trying to get it together between medical issues was daunting, so I bit the bullet and had them do it. It was my lifetime move #33 so not having to pack up was admittedly going to be an improvement on my usual stress-fests! Two packers were friendly, seemed professional and were super speedy-they arrived at 9am as planned. Basically they reassured me I could get out of the way while they worked. Off I went to a medical appointment. They were gone by 2pm with only a few items left for the next day. Tips were handed out and everyone was happy. Next day four movers arrived at 9am and started right in. I was expecting two movers but as it turned out they were killing time while waiting for another job to start so I was unexpectedly paying for their waiting time. Not a huge deal since it meant they'd be done twice as fast. All in all, there were very few glitches and the move was done by early afternoon. Surprise #1: the final bill was 20% higher than the estimate. I expected 10% but 20%? Yikes. I'd have gone with a mover who's moved me before (but who always breaks something) based on the estimate. Not so much I can do at that point, so . . .again, tips were disbursed, they left happy with the leftover breakfast donuts. Then I started unpacking. Surprise #2: a few hours in unpacking and I opened one of the bigger boxes, a china box. Usually packed with dishes & kitchen stuff, this one had even more paper than the previous ones, which were chock-full of packing paper. And more paper, and more paper and . . . yes, more paper all the way to the bottom of the box. Nothing but lots of paper wadded and screwed up in bunches to fill the boxes. Unpacking one empty box after another was a punch. All total, five large boxes with nothing but paper. Why?? Surprise #3: once I finally got everything unpacked I realized: I was missing two walking canes, one about 45 years old brought back from Barbados, with a carved fish head on top and one Amazon Choice with purple flowers for the last knee surgery. I called Burkhardt Brothers to inquire (1) if they had my walking sticks, (2) why the final total cost went 20% over, and (3) why bother stuffing boxes with paper if they were going to overcharge me anyway??caveat emptor and be FAR more watchful than I was if Burkhardt Bros pack you up because being charged for the empty boxes and a ton of packing paper is just adding insult to injury.

Marcia Tyarks 1 review in the last week I really can't say enough about Daley & Wanzer! My husband and I have worked with them on both local and long distance moves and they always go above and beyond. All of our moves/storage needs were last minute and somewhat chaotic. Sheila is a rock star, Kate is amazing. The movers, both in Hull and down here in NC, were terrific. Everyone we spoke to and dealt with in the office in Hull was great. We will hopefully be moving into our permanent home in Chapel Hill in about 8 months, and we really wish D&W had an office here.

Quite an interesting experience we had with them. Since the very first moment they showed up, everything has been easy going all they way to the delivery. These guys worked their buts off! It was like a marathon! Everything synchronized and well handled. I've moved before yet this was a different and pleasant experience. Both, the crew leader and the helper were very polite and social. I'd recommend them to my friends. While the move was stress free for me, the price was too. Not the cheapest mover you'll see, yet there were no hiccups. Thank you Barnes!

Mike Reynolds and his group moved my Jamaica Plain 2BR loft lodging me, my wife, and 8 month old child. They made an extraordinary showing all the way. A four man group stuffed us up from 830AM-630PM or something like that. They worked rapidly and proficiently with awesome collaboration. They were all extremely alright with one another and made the pressing more agreeable. Unloading was extraordinary as well. A two-man group (counting Mike once more) unloaded us from 830AM-430PM or somewhere in the vicinity. Once more, they worked rapidly and proficiently. By and large, they were constantly agreeable, constantly proficient, and at last nothing was broken or unaccounted for. We were passed up how painstakingly they wrapped each of our dishes, glasses, and so on. It made unwrapping somewhat crazy with immense heaps of paper however I surmise that is about as good anyone might expect. The aggregate expense was about $5500 including full pack. It was an incredible worth contrasted with a considerable measure of alternate appraisals I got. They additionally did an in-home evaluation before they stuffed up so I got a "won't surpass" gauge. I'd run with them again instant!

I would procure them again instant.

I utilized Compass Moving for my turn toward the end of May and they were extraordinary! Having never employed movers, I had no clue what to search for or what data I expected to furnish them with. I observed their estimating to be aggressive and moderate, and the support of be awesome. Upon the arrival of the move, the majority of my effects (even the shoddy molecule board kind of furniture) was maneuvered carefully and nothing at all was broken or harmed. The movers who assisted with my turn were agreeable, proficient and super-speedy. It required far less investment than I suspected it would take and I couldn't have been more satisfied with the administration. I've as of now prescribed them to some of my companions for their up and coming moves.

I'd had a couple of companions who've utilized them and gotten great results, so for my first movers, I chose to try them out. Nathan and Mike were fabulous; they got to my place when they could, and explored the lift and long arrangement of sections out to the stacking docks. When they got to my new residence (the third story of a house), they attacked moving like creatures. These folks truly knew how to function! We needed to urge them to enjoy a reprieve to hydrate or drink some Gatorade. In the range of three hours, they had every one of my containers and furniture transported starting with one difficult to-achieve put then onto the next difficult to-achieve place. At the cost, they're simply astounding. On the off chance that you require an moving company, employ them now!

amicable folks who appeared to have a great time cooperating and with us. they buckled down and were exceptionally proficient and accommodating. in any case, a few things were harmed regardless of the fact that slightly.first, they broke a wheel/caster off my weber barbecue. i didn't find this until later on and this took some doing on my part to repair. it will never look 100% again.secondly, they scratched one of the dark safety glass racks to our television stand. when we were endeavoring to return the racks on at the new house we couldn't at initially figured which one went where until part of the gang said goodness better believe it the scratched one goes on top! well I knew it was not scratched when we cleared out the old address but rather I said nothing as it was an exceptionally cumbersome minute and i had a ton else on my plate.what would I have achieved by saying anything so I bit my tongue.i have put dark electrical tape over the three and a half creep scratch.lastly, they broke part of the box on our office desk.there is a scar where i stuck it and the part moves some when touched however fundamentally it is by all accounts ok.overall somewhat baffled. wish I hadn't tipped them so well at this point.

I moved in August just before the top week toward the end of the month. The movers were on time, if not somewhat early, and they were speedy and expert. They couldn't have been more pleasant, particularly despite a small staircase in Beacon Hill! The entire move took 4-5 hours. It was somewhat more than I expected, and there was an entire hoopla with installment experiencing twice. In general however, they were an incredible decision for movers and took extraordinary consideration of my things, particularly the greater part of my sketches. I would utilize them once more.

The USDOT (USDOT or DOT) is considered a federal Cabinet department within the U.S. government. Clearly, this department concerns itself with all aspects of transportation with safety as a focal point. The DOT was officially established by an act of Congress on October 15, 1966, beginning its operation on April 1, 1967. Superior to the DOT, the United States Secretary of Transportation governs the department. The mission of the DOT is to "Serve the United States by ensuring a fast, safe, efficient, accessible, and convenient transportation system that meets our vital national interests and enhances the quality of life for the American people, today and into the future." Essentially this states how important it is to improve all types of transportation as a way to enhance both safety and life in general etc. It is important to note that the DOT is not in place to hurt businesses, but to improve our "vital national interests" and our "quality of life". The transportation networks are in definite need of such fundamental attention. Federal departments such as the USDOT are key to this industry by creating and enforcing regulations with intentions to increase the efficiency and safety of transportation. 

In 1976, the number one hit on the Billboard chart was "Convoy," a novelty song by C.W. McCall about a convoy of truck drivers evading speed traps and toll booths across America. The song inspired the 1978 action film Convoy directed by Sam Peckinpah. After the film's release, thousands of independent truck drivers went on strike and participated in violent protests during the 1979 energy crisis (although similar strikes had occurred during the 1973 energy crisis).

In the United States, shipments larger than about 7,000 kg (15,432 lb) are classified as truckload freight (TL). It is more efficient and affordable for a large shipment to have exclusive use of one larger trailer. This is opposed to having to share space on a smaller Less than Truckload freight carrier.

Very light trucks. Popular in Europe and Asia, many mini-trucks are factory redesigns of light automobiles, usually with monocoque bodies. Specialized designs with substantial frames such as the Italian Piaggio shown here are based upon Japanese designs (in this case by Daihatsu) and are popular for use in "old town" sections of European cities that often have very narrow alleyways. Regardless of the name, these small trucks serve a wide range of uses. In Japan, they are regulated under the Kei car laws, which allow vehicle owners a break on taxes for buying a smaller and less-powerful vehicle (currently, the engine is limited to 660 ccs {0.66L} displacement). These vehicles are used as on-road utility vehicles in Japan. These Japanese-made mini trucks that were manufactured for on-road use are competing with off-road ATVs in the United States, and import regulations require that these mini trucks have a 25 mph (40 km/h) speed governor as they are classified as low-speed vehicles. These vehicles have found uses in construction, large campuses (government, university, and industrial), agriculture, cattle ranches, amusement parks, and replacements for golf carts.Major mini truck manufacturers and their brands: Daihatsu Hijet, Honda Acty, Mazda Scrum, Mitsubishi Minicab, Subaru Sambar, Suzuki Carry   As with many things in Europe and Asia, the illusion of delicacy and proper manners always seems to attract tourists.

These are very popular for use in "old town" sections of European cities, which often have very narrow alleyways.

Currently, the engine is limited to 660 cc [0.66L] displacement. These vehicles began being used as on-road utility vehicles in Japan. Classified as a low speed vehicle, these Japanese-made mini trucks were manufactured for on-road use for competing the the off-road ATVs in the United States. Import regulations require that the mini trucks have a 25 mph (40km/h) speed governor. Again, this is because they are low speed vehicles.   However, these vehicles have found numerous amounts of ways to help the community. They invest money into the government, universities, amusement parks, and replacements for golf cars. They have some major Japanese mini truck manufacturarers as well as brands such as: Daihatsu Hijet, Honda Acty, Mazda Scrum, Mitsubishit Minicab, Subaru Sambar, and Suzuki Carry.

"Six Day on the Road" was a trucker hit released in 1963 by country music singer Dave Dudley. Bill Malone is an author as well as a music historian. He notes the song "effectively captured both the boredom and the excitement, as well as the swaggering masculinity that often accompanied long distance trucking."

In the 20th century, the 1940 film "They Drive by Night" co-starred Humphrey Bogart. He plays an independent driver struggling to become financially stable and economically independent. This is all set during the times of the Great Depression. Yet another film was released in 1941, called "The Gang's All Here". It is a story of a trucking company that's been targeted by saboteurs.

All cars must pass some sort of emission check, such as a smog check to ensure safety. Similarly, trucks are subject to noise emission requirement, which is emanating from the U.S. Noise Control Act. This was intended to protect the public from noise health side effects. The loud noise is due to the way trucks contribute disproportionately to roadway noise. This is primarily due to the elevated stacks and intense tire and aerodynamic noise characteristics.

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 some states, a business route is designated by adding the letter "B" after the number instead of placing a "Business" sign above it. For example, Arkansas signs US business route 71 as "US 71B". On some route shields and road signs, the word "business" is shortened to just "BUS". This abbreviation is rare and usually avoided to prevent confusion with bus routes.

Public transportation is vital to a large part of society and is in dire need of work and attention. In 2010, the DOT awarded $742.5 million in funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to 11 transit projects. The awardees specifically focused light rail projects. One includes both a commuter rail extension and a subway project in New York City. The public transportation New York City has to offer is in need of some TLC. Another is working on a rapid bus transit system in Springfield, Oregon. The funds also subsidize a heavy rail project in northern Virginia. This finally completes the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's Metro Silver Line, connecting to Washington, D.C., and the Washington Dulles International Airport. This is important because the DOT has previously agreed to subsidize the Silver Line construction to Reston, Virginia.

The Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula is a mathematical formula used in the United States to determine the appropriate gross weight for a long distance moving vehicle, based on the axle number and spacing. Enforced by the Department of Transportation upon long-haul truck drivers, it is used as a means of preventing heavy vehicles from damaging roads and bridges. This is especially in particular to the total weight of a loaded truck, whether being used for commercial moving services or for long distance moving services in general.   According to the Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula, the total weight of a loaded truck (tractor and trailer, 5-axle rig) cannot exceed 80,000 lbs in the United States. Under ordinary circumstances, long-haul equipment trucks will weight about 15,000 kg (33,069 lbs). This leaves about 20,000 kg (44,092 lbs) of freight capacity. Likewise, a load is limited to the space available in the trailer, normally with dimensions of 48 ft (14.63 m) or 53 ft (16.15 m) long, 2.6 m (102.4 in) wide, 2.7 m (8 ft 10.3 in) high and 13 ft 6 in or 4.11 m high.

As the American Interstate Highway System began to expand in the 1950's, the trucking industry began to take over a large market share. That is, a large share of the transportation of goods throughout the country. Before this era, trains had been relied on to transport the bulk of the goods cross country or state to state. The Interstate Highway System was influential as it allows for merchandise to travel door to door with ease. Since then, truckload carriers have taken advantage of the interstate system, especially when performing a long distance move. Typically, they bring the merchandise from one distribution center of the country to another part of the country. The increase in truckload freight transportation has reduced the time it takes to transport the goods. Whether the freight was manufactured or produced for the different areas internationally, the time it takes to transport goods has decreased dramatically.  

Relocation, or moving, is the process of vacating a fixed location, such as a residence or business, and settling in a different one. A move might be to a nearby location such as in the same neighborhood or a much farther location in a different city or even a different country. Moving usually includes packing up all belongings, transferring them to the new location, and unpacking them. It will also be necessary to update administrative information. This includes tasks such as notifying the post office, changing registration data, change of insurance, services etc. It is important to remember this step in the relocation process. 

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.

The American Association of State Highway Officials (AASHO) was organized and founded on December 12, 1914. On November 13, 1973, the name was altered to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials. This slight change in name reflects a broadened scope of attention towards all modes of transportation. Despite the implications of the name change, most of the activities it is involved in still gravitate towards highways.

The decade of the 70's in the United States was a memorable one, especially for the notion of truck driving. This seemed to dramatically increase popularity among trucker culture. Throughout this era, and even in today's society, truck drivers are romanticized as modern-day cowboys and outlaws. These stereotypes were due to their use of Citizens Band (CB) radios to swap information with other drivers. Information regarding the locations of police officers and transportation authorities. The general public took an interest in the truckers 'way of life' as well. Both drivers and the public took interest in plaid shirts, trucker hats, CB radios, and CB slang.

Smoke and the Bandit was released in 1977, becoming the third-highest grossing movie. Following only behind Star Wars Episode IV and Close Encounter of the Third Kind, all three movies making an impact on popular culture. Conveniently, during that same year, CB Bears debuted as well. The Saturday morning cartoon features mystery-solving bears who communicate by CB radio. As the 1970's decade began to end and the 80's broke through, the trucking phenomenon had wade. With the rise of cellular phone technology, the CB radio was no longer popular with passenger vehicles, but, truck drivers still use it today.

The industry intends to both consumers as well as moving companies, this is why there are Ministers of Transportation in the industry. They are there to set and maintain laws and regulations in place to create a safer environment. It offers its members professional service training and states the time that movers have been in existence. It also provides them with federal government representation and statistical industry reporting. Additionally, there are arbitration services for lost or damaged claims, publications, public relations, and annual tariff updates and awards. This site includes articles as well that give some direction, a quarterly data summary, and industry trends.

Light trucks are classified this way because they are car-sized, yet in the U.S. they can be no more than 6,300 kg (13,900 lb). These are used by not only used by individuals but also businesses as well. In the UK they may not weigh more than 3,500 kg (7,700 lb) and are authorized to drive with a driving license for cars. Pickup trucks, popular in North America, are most seen in North America and some regions of Latin America, Asia, and Africa. Although Europe doesn't seem to follow this trend, where the size of the commercial vehicle is most often made as vans.
