Your Statewide Moving Reviews

I had heard some terrible moving stories from friends and family, so I worked hard to find capable, conscientious movers with integrity. We certainly found the in Scully Statewide.
We moved from an hour south to Grand Rapids.
The movers were experienced, very hard-working and careful. We had one piece of bedroom furniture that they worked hard to finally fit into the room (narrow hallway and abrupt turn).
I had high expectations and they were completely fulfilled.

As a long standing customer moving that seems to be, Statewide simply moved me for the fourth time. I am as satisfied today as I have dependably been. The devotion and polished methodology which the men showcase is unrivaled.

I am exceptionally inspired with the way they wrap each bit of furniture as they move it onto the van.

Each of the men Chad, Joel, John and Larry are such diligent employees and don't stop till things are finished. It was without a mess which is uncommon today.

None of the men appear like they brain what they do by any stretch of the imagination, chuckling but finishing their work.

Mark gives cites that are so reasonable and moderate before you move, they seldom veer off

by any stretch of the imagination.

I can not think about any movers I can genuinely say I really am awed with!

You will never be frustrated by this moving company...

They go well beyond in their work execution.

Really delightful!

We needed to move a truck heap of furniture from a two room townhouse in Central Mass into an outfitted three room house in Metro West and these folks were breathtaking!

They sorted out and swap out furniture such as champs! They were on-time, neighborly and proficient.

The quote was right on target and they even sent additional folks to complete up ahead of schedule with no extra cost.

Robert Heckman, President of Statewide was anything but difficult to work with in setting up the day!

We would utilize them again instant!

QuestionTrucks and cars have much in commonmechanicallyas well asancestrally.One link between them is the steam-powered fardier Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot, who built it in 1769. Unfortunately for him, steam trucks were notreallycommon until the mid 1800's. While looking at thispractically, it would be much harder to have a steam truck. This ismostlydue to the fact that the roads of the timewere builtfor horse and carriages. Steam truckswere leftto very short hauls, usually from a factory to the nearest railway station.In 1881, the first semi-trailer appeared, and it was in fact towed by a steam tractor manufactured by De Dion-Bouton.Steam-powered truckswere soldin France and in the United States,apparentlyuntil the eve of World War I. Also, at the beginning of World War II in the United Kingdom, theywere knownas 'steam wagons'.

QuestionMany modern trucksare powered bydiesel engines, although small to medium size trucks with gas engines exist in the United States.The European Union rules that vehicles with a gross combination of mass up to 3,500 kg (7,716 lb) are also known as light commercial vehicles. Any vehicles exceeding that weightare knownas large goods vehicles.

QuestionDOT officers of each state are generally in charge of the enforcement of the Hours of Service (HOS). These are sometimes checked when CMVs pass through weigh stations. Drivers found to be in violation of the HOS canbe forcedto stop driving for a certain period of time. This, in turn, maynegativelyaffect the motor carrier's safety rating. Requests to change the HOS are a source of debate. Unfortunately, many surveysindicatedriversroutinelyget away with violating the HOS.Such facts have started yet another debate on whether motor carriers shouldbe requiredto us EOBRs in their vehicles.Relying on paper-based log books does not always seem to enforce the HOS law put in place for the safety of everyone.


The rise of technological development gave rise to the modern trucking industry.There a few factors supporting this spike in the industry such as the advent of the gas-powered internal combustion engine.Improvement in transmissions is yet another source,justlike the move away from chain drives to gear drives. And of course the development of the tractor/semi-trailer combination.
The first state weight limits for truckswere determinedand put in place in 1913.Only four states limited truck weights, from a low of 18,000 pounds (8,200 kg) in Maine to a high of 28,000 pounds (13,000 kg) in Massachusetts. The intention of these laws was to protect the earth and gravel-surfaced roads. In this case, particular damages due to the iron and solid rubber wheels of early trucks. By 1914 there were almost 100,000 trucks on America's roads.As a result of solid tires, poor rural roads, and amaximumspeed of 15 miles per hour (24km/h) continued to limit the use of these trucks tomostlyurban areas.

QuestionLight trucksare classifiedthis way because they are car-sized, yet in the U.S. they can be no more than 6,300 kg (13,900 lb). Theseare used bynot only used by individuals but also businesses as well. In the UK they may not weigh more than 3,500 kg (7,700 lb) andare authorizedto 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.
