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 :).

Did You Know

Question The number one hit on the Billboard chart in 1976 was quite controversial for the trucking industry. "Convoy," is a song about a group of reckless truck drivers bent on evading laws such as toll booths and speed traps. The song went on to inspire the film "Convoy", featuring defiant Kris Kristofferson screaming "piss on your law!" After the film's release, thousands of independent truck drivers went on strike. The participated in violent protests during the 1979 energy crisis. However, similar strikes had occurred during the 1973 energy crisis.

Question Public transportation is vital to a large part of society and is in dire need of work and attention. In 2010, the DOT awarded $742.5 million in funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to 11 transit projects. The awardees specifically focused light rail projects. One includes both a commuter rail extension and a subway project in New York City. The public transportation New York City has to offer is in need of some TLC. Another is working on a rapid bus transit system in Springfield, Oregon. The funds also subsidize a heavy rail project in northern Virginia. This finally completes the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's Metro Silver Line, connecting to Washington, D.C., and the Washington Dulles International Airport. This is important because the DOT has previously agreed to subsidize the Silver Line construction to Reston, Virginia.

Question Logistics is generally the ability to organize and put in place many complex operations at a single time. It is the management of the flow of things to meet the needs of customers or corporations. Resources managed in logistics includes tangible items such as food, materials, animals, equipment, etc. Not to mention the items that are not tangible such as time and information. This means that the movement of physical items, such as in the moving industry, involves a clear understanding of solid workflow. Such logistics can involve the handling of necessary materials, producing, packaging, inventory, transportation, warehousing, and often security.

Question The 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 and was shocked when 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.


The rise of technological development gave rise to the modern trucking industry. There a few factors supporting this spike in the industry such as the advent of the gas-powered internal combustion engine. Improvement in transmissions is yet another source, just like the move away from chain drives to gear drives. And of course the development of the tractor/semi-trailer combination.
The first state weight limits for trucks were determined and put in place in 1913. Only four states limited truck weights, from a low of 18,000 pounds (8,200 kg) in Maine to a high of 28,000 pounds (13,000 kg) in Massachusetts. The intention of these laws was to protect the earth and gravel-surfaced roads. In this case, particular damages due to the iron and solid rubber wheels of early trucks. By 1914 there were almost 100,000 trucks on America's roads. As a result of solid tires, poor rural roads, and a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour (24km/h) continued to limit the use of these trucks to mostly urban areas.
