Granite City Moving and Storage
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!
I had Jim gone to my home he was extremely proficient let me know what was required dealt with my turn 100% consumer loyalty I would prescribe them to every one of my loved ones Great moving company !!!!

Within the world of transportation, bypass routes are often very controversial.This ismostlydue to the fact that theyrequirethe building of a road carrying heavy traffic where no road existed before.This has created conflict among society thus creating a divergence between those in support of bypasses and those whoare opposed. Supporters believe they reduce congestion in built up areas. Those in opposition do not believe in developing (often rural) undeveloped land.In addition, the cities thatare bypassedmay also oppose such a project as reduced traffic may, in turn, reduce and damage business.
The American Association of State Highway Officials (AASHO)was organizedand founded on December 12, 1914.On November 13, 1973, the namewas alteredto 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 itis involvedin still gravitate towards highways.
Moving companies that operate within the borders of a particular state are usually regulated by the state DOT. Sometimes the public utility commission in that state will take care of it.This only applies to some of the U.S. states such as in California (California Public Utilities Commission) or Texas (Texas Department of Motor Vehicles.However, no matter what state you are in it is always best to make sure you are compliant with that state
