Dan and his crew were awesome! Dan was great to deal with and he delivered. We felt price was fair and they were nice hard working guys. Move was a little tricky and Dan was extremely knowledgeable. Final price was less then estimated ~ when does that ever happen? We could not have been happier with move. Would highly recommend using Dan

Moving is so stressful but Dan and his crew were so professional, polite and true gentlemen. They even arrived a few minutes early, wrapped everything and carefully moved my belongings with ease. Will highly recommend Dan the Man to all my friends and colleagues. Thanks guys!

They were snappy, deferential and careful. I would prescribe this group to anybody hoping to move! Our land specialist suggested this organization and I know why!

Dan is absolutely a dependable mover and does it much less expensive than the other moving companies. I've used him twice so far and I'm very much satisfied with his work, both Dan and Ray make an incredible team. No damage to any of our furniture for both moves. Keep being awesome guys!

So let me simply begin at first I was truly apprehensive. I have never utilized movers and I didn't know what to think. Be that as it may, they were extraordinary. Super expert, they showed up two or three days before to make sense of what all would have been moved. At that point the two folks appeared at the time guaranteed and they were awesome folks. Super cautious with all my stuff and everything was moved so rapidly. They began at 7am and were finished by around 9am. I was outrageously inspired nothing got softened or harmed up any way. The folks were so magnificent and I am truly happy we utilized Dan The Affordable moving man :).

Question Beginning the the early 20th century, the 1920's saw several major advancements. There was improvement in rural roads which was significant for the time. The diesel engine, which are 25-40% more efficient than gas engines were also a major breakthrough. We also saw the standardization of truck and trailer sizes along with fifth wheel coupling systems. Additionally power assisted brakes and steering developed. By 1933, all states had some form of varying truck weight regulation.

Question A trailer is not very difficult to categorize. In general, it is an unpowered vehicle towed by a powered vehicle. Trailers are most commonly used for the transport of goods and materials. Although some do enjoy recreational usage of trailers as well. 

Question The term "lorry" has an ambiguous origin, but it is likely that its roots were in the rail transport industry. This is where the word is known to have been used in 1838 to refer to a type of truck (a freight car as in British usage) specifically a large flat wagon. It may derive from the verb lurry, which means to pull or tug, of uncertain origin. It's expanded meaning was much more exciting as "self-propelled vehicle for carrying goods", and has been in usage since 1911. Previously, unbeknownst to most, the word "lorry" was used for a fashion of big horse-drawn goods wagon.


The FMCSA has established rules to maintain and regulate the safety of the trucking industry. According to FMCSA rules, driving a goods-carrying CMV more than 11 hours or to drive after having been on duty for 14 hours, is illegal. Due to such heavy driving, they need a break to complete other tasks such as loading and unloading cargo, stopping for gas and other required vehicle inspections, as well as non-working duties such as meal and rest breaks. The 3-hour difference between the 11-hour driving limit and 14 hour on-duty limit gives drivers time to take care of such duties. In addition, after completing an 11 to 14 hour on duty period, the driver much be allowed 10 hours off-duty.

Question Light trucks are classified this way because they are car-sized, yet in the U.S. they can be no more than 6,300 kg (13,900 lb). These are used by not only used by individuals but also businesses as well. In the UK they may not weigh more than 3,500 kg (7,700 lb) and are authorized to drive with a driving license for cars. Pickup trucks, popular in North America, are most seen in North America and some regions of Latin America, Asia, and Africa. Although Europe doesn't seem to follow this trend, where the size of the commercial vehicle is most often made as vans.
