I am having a very poor experience with Traditional Express. First, while selling me on thier services, the sales rep told me I could pay for the deposit, the payment due at pickup, and the final payment all with a credit card on file. I had a confusing conversation with the driver who picked up my boxes and he told me that wouldn't be the case and "maybe you heard incorrectly". I wasn't able to reach anyone that weekend and spent the next week trying to get in touch with my rep to clarify. When I final got him on the phone (begrudgingly), he told me again that final payment by credit card was fine but had 3-4% service charge. Then he gave me another number to call for any future questions - it was clear he had earned his commission off me and didn't care do deal with my file any more.

I then contacted the customer service rep he told me to speak with. The service rep eventually (after several emails trying to clarify) told me that no, I couldn't use the credit card method for the final payment unless I had "pre-approval prior to pick up" and she did not see that approval in the notes.

Then there is the issue of scheduling the delivery. I was told originally during the sales pitch the delivery would happen sometime between August 8-12. Then after being directed to the service rep I was told August 13-14th. When I reached out on the 12th to confirm I was told the delivery was now scheduled for the 17th. When no one showed up or called on the 17th, I reached out and was told it was coming on the afternoon of August 18th.

Today is the 18th, my second day of setting aside other responsibilities to wait for delivery, and the movers haven't shown up or called. I can't get ahold of the service rep. All in all I have found the communication extremely lacking and feel I'm being lied to. I didn't mind waiting a little while for a delivery, but I was given specific, incorrect information as a sales tactic and had the delivery window changed 4 times.

I really wanted to give this company a good review. It started off well with the sales person but when the men came to my home the price went up. I talked over and over with their office and explain it was too much money. Now I hate this company for what they did next, they sent the truck to do a delivery and refused to take the stuff off the truck until I paid in full. Crooks that don't speak English, read and learn from my horrible experience.

QuestionThe interstate moving industry in the United States maintains regulation by the FMCSA, which is part of the USDOT.With only a small staff (fewer than 20 people) available to patrol hundreds of moving companies, enforcement is difficult.As a result of such a small staff, there arein many cases, no regulations that qualify moving companies as 'reliable'. Without this guarantee, it is difficult to a consumer to make a choice. Although, moving companies can provide and often display a DOT license.

QuestionIn the United States, the Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1986 established minimum requirements that must be met when a state issues a commercial driver's license CDL. It specifies the following types of license: - Class A CDL drivers. Drive vehicles weighing 26,001 pounds or greater, or any combination of vehicles weighing 26,001 pounds or greater when towing a trailer weighing more than 10,000 pounds. Transports quantities of hazardous materials that require warning placards under Department of Public Safety regulations. - Class A Driver License permits. Is a step in preparation for Class A drivers to become a Commercial Driver. - Class B CDL driver. Class B is designed to transport 16 or more passengers (including driver) or more than 8 passengers (including the driver) for compensation. This includes, but is not limited to, tow trucks, tractor trailers, and buses.


In 1938, the now-eliminated Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) enforced the first Hours of Service (HOS) rules. Drivers became limited to 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period.At this time, work included loading, unloading, driving, handling freight, preparing reports, preparing vehicles for service, or performing any other duty in relation to the transportation of passengers or property.
The ICC intended for the 3-hour difference between 12 hours of work and 15 hours on-duty tobe usedfor meals and rest breaks.This meant that the weekly maxwas limitedto 60 hours over 7 days (non-dailydrivers), or 70 hours over 8 days (daily drivers). With these rules in place, it allowed 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period, 9 hours of rest, with 3 hours for breaks within a 24-hour day.

QuestionReleased in 1998, the film Black Dog featured Patrick Swayze as a truck driver who made it out of prison.However, his life of crime continued, as hewas manipulatedinto the transportation of illegal guns.Writer Scott Doviak has described the movie as a "high-octane riff on White Line Fever" as well as "a throwback to the trucker movies of the 70s".

QuestionCommercial trucks in the U.S. pay higher road taxes on a State level than the road vehicles and are subject to extensive regulation. This begs the question of why these trucks are paying more. I'll tell you.Justto name a few reasons, commercial truck pay higher road use taxes.They are much bigger and heavier than most other vehicles, resulting in more wear and tear on the roadways.They are also on the road for extended periods of time, which also affects the interstate as well as roads and passing through towns. Yet, rules on use taxes differ among jurisdictions.
