Omg they won't allow me to sit unbothered! I rounded out ONE structure online for a short time back to look at movers,now I'm assaulted day and night through phone,emails and letters from this and numerous different companys...

Most exceedingly terrible expert move I have had, and that even tops the movers who very generous disposed of the things they broke so I couldn't assert any protection. Rather, Wakefiled Moving and Storage recorded each and every thing I possessed as being marked, scratched, ruined, severely worn, and so on (some most itmes have 10 things wrong recorded with each) on each and every surface so I couldn't assert much either when they dismembered my furniture inaccurately and tore screws right out of sheets. As a sample, three fresh out of the plastic new hassocks were set apart as "severely worn". Fortunately, they were not harmed by the movers but rather I discovered it a prime case of how shady they were. Numerous different things were harmed however, one being a ruler size bed outline/headboard that is unrecoverable. They likewise accomplished something else really tricky - Told me my movers were touching base at twelve, when truth be told the driver let me know he was advised to land at 10am, and I was told twelve in light of the fact that the driver just needs to hold up 2 hr before putting all you're having a place into storage...at which time they charge you a huge number of dollars to get it out and moved once more. So on the off chance that I was even the slightest bit late, they wouldn't be there and I'd be paying more cash. Luckily, for me (I figure) they gave the driver the wrong postal division so he wound up a few hours late subsequent to going to another town.

QuestionThe Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is an agency within the United States Department of Transportation.The purpose of the FMCSA is to regulate safety within the trucking and moving industry in the United States.The FMCSA enforces safety precautions that reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving large trucks and buses.


Full truckload carriersnormallydeliver a semi-trailer to a shipper who will fill the trailer with freight for one destination.Once the traileris filled, the driver returns to the shipper to collect the required paperwork.Upon receiving the paperwork the driver will then leave with the trailer containing freight. Next, the driver will proceed to the consignee and deliver the freight him or herself. At times, a driver will transfer the trailer to another driver who will drive the freight the rest of the way.Full Truckload service (FTL) transit times are generally restricted by the driver's availability. This is according to Hours of Service regulations and distance.It istypicallyaccepted that Full Truckload carriers will transport freight at an average rate of 47 miles per hour. This includes traffic jams, queues at intersections, other factors that influence transit time.


Compliance, Safety, and Accountability (CSA) are fundamental to the FMCSA's compliance program. The purpose of the CSA program is to oversee and focus on motor carriers' safety performance. To enforce such safety regulations, the CSA conducts roadside inspections and crash investigations.The program issues violations when instances of noncompliance with CSA safety regulationsare exposed.
Unfortunately, the CSA's number of safety investigation teams and state law enforcement partners are rather small in comparison to the millions of CMV companies and commercial driver license (CDL) holders. A key factor in the CSA programis knownas the Safety Measurement System (SMS).This system relies on data analysis to identify unsafe companies to arrange them for safety interventions. SMS is incredibly helpful to CSA in finding and holding companies accountable for safety performance.


The FMCSA has established rules to maintain and regulate the safety of the trucking industry.According to FMCSA rules, driving a goods-carrying CMV more than 11 hours or to drive after having been on duty for 14 hours, is illegal.Due to such heavy driving, they need a break to complete other tasks such as loading and unloading cargo, stopping for gas and other required vehicle inspections, as well as non-working duties such as meal and rest breaks.The 3-hour difference between the 11-hour driving limit and 14 hour on-duty limit gives drivers time to take care of such duties.In addition, after completing an 11 to 14 hour on duty period, the driver muchbe allowed10 hours off-duty.

QuestionIn 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.
