Moving with Granite City Moving and Storage
I will say the movers were very efficient and timely with moving everything. There were several pieces of furniture that were damaged during the move. The back of my couch had a huge gouge in it, one of the cusions for my couch has a tear in it, my dining room table had a huge chip in the corner, one of my pieces of bathroom furniture has a huge scratch and several corner chips in it, a small kitchen island I have has the enitre handle torn off with no way to repair it, the door frame entering my apartment has gouges in it, the wall outside of my apartment door has a huge gouge going about a 1/4 inch deep. Considering every piece of furniture they moved with the exception of a 5 shelf bookshelf, one section of my couch, and a 3 shelf bookshelf was damaged during the move I would not recommend or hire them again.
I just composed a sparkling review...but now we found that our handtruck is missing. It is exceptionally occupied when they indicate up....but we were content with them. Today...husband returned home to move boxes and he searched all over the place for his OLD red handtruck. Not a single where in sight. A simple error perhaps...to take it. I called them. Trust we get it back soon. I'll change my survey when we do!

The public idea of the trucking industry in the United States popular culture has gone through many transformations.However, images of the masculine side of trucking are a common theme throughout time.The 1940's first made truckers popular, with their songs and movies about truck drivers. Then in the 1950's theywere depictedas heroes of the road, living a life of freedom on the open road.Trucking culture peaked in the 1970's as theywere glorifiedas modern days cowboys, outlaws, and rebels. Since then the portrayal has come with a more negative connotation as we see in the 1990's.Unfortunately, the depiction of truck drivers went from such a positive depiction to that of troubled serial killers.

AMSA also takes into consideration and examines ownership.
