These guys are all fantastic! Andy and Zack were totally expert in the entire process of moving me from downtown, to Old Mission! Their great attitudes really put me at ease! I appreciated the care they took in protecting each item and they made what I thought would be a difficult move into a quick, seemingly (!) effortless transition! Upon arrival, everything was placed exactly as requested and all the packing materials were removed, leaving the new home in spotless condition! I really can't say enough about everyone I dealt with when scheduling this move. In the front office, Mara, Shana and Amanda guided me seamlessly through things, from minute one. Moving always comes with a certain amount of apprehension, but I have to admit, their team made this extremely easy and stress-free! Many, many thanks and highest marks to everyone at Two Men and a Truck, TC!

Jesse and Brian were AWESOME! They helped me with a cross-town proceed onward Sunday and were proficient, useful, and productive all through the whole move. Also, yes, they were even patient as they moved out of an old cabin into a townhome with an excess of stairs (sorry about that, folks). The evaluating was sensible, they could secure a quick arrangement (approached Friday and could get a Sunday appt.), and everything made it to the new place unscuffed and in incredible condition. I would prescribe these folks for anybody hoping to move in Michigan!

I utilized Two Men and a Truck prior this month, and they are the Movers Who Care! They brought additional consideration with the pieces I was worried with, and did all that they could to keep our effects safe while filling in as fast as would be prudent. They kept an uplifting demeanor, notwithstanding when it was pouring down downpour. Besides, they moved from a second story loft to a second story flat in three hours, which was under the cited time so it spared me cash. It can't show signs of improvement than that!

Employed Two Men and A Truck to empty a few trucks for us. They appeared on time, took after our directions and were quick and affable.

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.

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).

The number one hit on the Billboard chart in 1976 was quite controversial for the trucking industry. "Convoy," is a song about a group of reckless truck drivers bent on evading laws such as toll booths and speed traps. The song went on to inspire the film "Convoy", featuring defiant Kris Kristofferson screaming "piss on your law!" After the film's release, thousands of independent truck drivers went on strike. The participated in violent protests during the 1979 energy crisis. However, similar strikes had occurred during the 1973 energy crisis.

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.

A semi-trailer is almost exactly what it sounds like, it is a trailer without a front axle. Proportionally, its weight is supported by two factors. The weight falls upon a road tractor or by a detachable front axle assembly, known as a dolly. Generally, a semi-trailer is equipped with legs, known in the industry as "landing gear". This means it can be lowered to support it when it is 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).

Unfortunately for the trucking industry, their image began to crumble during the latter part of the 20th century. As a result, their reputation suffered. More recently truckers have been portrayed as chauvinists or even worse, serial killers. The portrayals of semi-trailer trucks have focused on stories of the trucks becoming self-aware. Generally, this is with some extraterrestrial help.

Ultra light trucks are very easy to spot or acknowledge if you are paying attention. They are often produced variously such as golf cars, for instance, it has internal combustion or a battery electric drive. They usually for off-highway use on estates, golf courses, parks, in stores, or even someone in an electric wheelchair. While clearly not suitable for highway usage, some variations may be licensed as slow speed vehicles. The catch is that they may on operate on streets, usually a body variation of a neighborhood electric vehicle. A few manufacturers produce specialized chassis for this type of vehicle. Meanwhile, Zap Motors markets a version of the xebra electric tricycle. Which, believe it or not, is able to attain a general license in the United States as a motorcycle.
