what a great experience. I would love to know how they are able to stay so affordable.

moving for me was a nightmare. I had no idea where to begin. I found this company online and felt that it was time to spend a little bit of money to ease my stress. I expected a very high price for the amount of work that was needed to be done. I was wrong! they were less than $1000 to move me from Queens NY to Albany. I was shocked and have no found it my duty to let the public know about this companies work ethic/price reasonability.

very careful and considerate people work here. I am thrilled I made the right choice. I won't hesitate to move with them again in the near future.

I had to get moving quick. My landlord was being unreasonable. Simply put I needed to move out really quick. I had hired traditional express two years ago for my move out and found them to be fair with pricing and responsible with my mother's furniture. I hired them once more for this most recent move and was quite happy with the experience. They offered me some free storage while I sorted my life out. Thank you Luis for your help!

hey traditional! loved the service! packed my whole apartment up in 4 hours. soon will have my girls moving with them too to georgia.

We hired these guys after getting back dozens of quotes from other companies.These guys were amazing and most of all they were all in sync and worked well as a team. Super careful, fast and professional.
I ended up paying less which lead to a better tip for the fantastic crew. Ask for Louis and John because from our personal experience they are very skilled and quick on their feet.Thanks!

I was quoted by 5 different moving companies for my studio apartment. And I made the right decision by choosing Traditional. They were organized and efficient and made my move as easy as possible. I would highly recommend them and use them again.

I've multiple moved times in my life. This was a great move, everything could not have gone more smoothly. The movers arrived right on time and were incredibly nice and professional. Everything was done in exactly the given window, with the team communicating with me every step of the way. They also included storage that helped out with me and my family finding a place in San Diego. The customer service leading up to, during and following the move were also exceptional. Very communicative and supportive!

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.

Did You Know

QuestionIn the 20th century, the 1940 film "They Drive by Night" co-starred Humphrey Bogart. He plays an independent driver struggling to becomefinanciallystable andeconomicallyindependent. This is all set during the times of the Great Depression. Yet another film was released in 1941, called "The Gang's All Here". It is a story of a trucking company that'sbeen targeted bysaboteurs.

QuestionThe United States Department of Transportation has become a fundamental necessity in the moving industry.It is the pinnacle of the industry, creating and enforcing regulations for the sake of safety for both businesses and consumers alike.However, it is notable to appreciate the history of such a powerful department.The functions currently performed by the DOT were once enforced by the Secretary of Commerce for Transportation.In 1965, Najeeb Halaby, administrator of the Federal Aviation Adminstration (FAA), had an excellent suggestion.He spoke to the current President Lyndon B. Johnson, advising that transportationbe elevatedto a cabinet level position. He continued, suggesting that the FAAbe foldedor merged, if you will, into the DOT.Clearly, the President took to Halaby's fresh ideasregardingtransportation, thus putting the DOT into place.


A circumferential route refers to a public transportation system that follows the route in the shape of a circle.Over time a nickname developed in the European Union, calling transportation networks such as these a "ring road".This is no surprise as Europe has several famous "ring roads" such as the Berliner Ring, the Brussels Ring, the Amsterdam Ring, the Boulevard Périphérique around Paris and the Leeds Inner and Outer ring roads. Other countries adopted the term as well which in turn made the name go international.Australia's Melbourne's Western Ring Road and India's Hyderabad's Outer Ring Road both adopted the name.Howeverin Canada, the term is mostcommonlyused, with "orbital" used to a much lesser extent.
On the contrary, the United States calls many "ring roads" as belt-lines, beltways, or loops instead.For example, the Capital Beltway around Washington, D.C. Some ring roads use terminology such as "Inner Loop" and "Outer Loop".This is, of course, for the sake of directional sense, since compass directions cannotbe determinedaround the entire loop.

QuestionThe 1980s were full of happening things, but in 1982 a Southern California truck driver gained short-lived fame. His name was Larry Walters, also known as "Lawn Chair Larry", for pulling a crazy stunt. He ascended to a height of 16,000 feet (4,900 m) by attaching helium balloons to a lawn chair, hence the name.Walters claims he only intended to remain floating near the ground andwas shockedwhen his chair shot up at a rate of 1,000 feet (300 m) per minute.The inspiration for such a stunt Walters claims his poor eyesight for ruining his dreams to become an Air Force pilot.

QuestionIn today's society, there are rules and regulations everywhere you go, the same goes for commercial vehicles. The federal government has strict regulations that mustbe met, such as how many hours a driver may be on the clock. For example, 11 hours driving /14 hours on-duty followed by 10 hours off, with a max of 70 hours/8 days or 60 hours/7 days.They can also set rules deciding how much rest and sleep timeis required,however, these are only a couple of regulations set. Any violations are often subject to harsh penalties.In some cases, there are instruments to track each driver's hours, which are becoming more necessary.
