Radius Moving & Storage
Moving with Radius Moving & Storage
A short message from Michelle the owner. I have working with many moving companies and carriers and in these past years my experience has taught me a lot about moving people and their homes. No body wants to get ripped off or promised the world with empty promises at the end of the day. People have different requirements and every move situation is different. We understand moving is tuff and you want to stick to a budget and it can be hard to plan and be ready. We at Radius Moving try to make it clear to everyone so that everyone has a clear understanding of there needs on their move. You the customer in control of entire move and we are here to help. We do our best to have the least amount of surprised as possible so that everything stays calm and the move goes smooth as possible. We care.
These guys are great movers, considerate, careful, pleasant, great to be around. The company as a whole is responsive, organized, easy to work with. I really can't give enough praise to them for making a stressful move very easy. Thanks again!
They moved me into my new place- very fast, very efficient, awesome job. Would absolutely use them again. Did the whole thing in under 3 hours, put everything where I asked, and just great, courteous professionals.
They did a fantastic job in preparing my belongs for storage and moving them there. Fast and efficient. I'll request them for my next move and recommend them to everyone.
They did everything quickly & efficiently! They were polite and careful the whole time. I really suggest this moving company, & the movers! Will definitely be recommending to friends and family
Great company to work with. Very friendly staff and handled all items with care.
Best experience I've had with movers. On-time. Wrapped all my furniture that was hard to navigate out of the house/rooms. They even moved our entire business to our new Loft. They are a class act!!
The drivers and their teams were friendly and did everything to make the move as easy as possible for us. I would not hesitate to recommend them. Our possessions arrived undamaged and were place according to our wishes. In some cases they moved items already placed because of our indecision. Everything was done in a timely manner so none of our travel plans needed to be changed.
Robert and Tony were very efficient and on time. They helped me move my home and were very fast. They were patient with me and even helped me pack some minor things. I will definitely use them again.
LOVE this moving company. Helpful and polite. Very detailed and careful. They wrapped everything neatly and secure. They were respectful of our items and totally okay with our dog running around. They helped to utilize the most of our truck. I will use them Again and won't be hesitant to refer them to my friends.
Was taking my furniture and other stuff from a townhouse to a storage. Robert and his assistant did an excellent job loading the truck and then unloading it into the storage unit. Everything was done very carefully, fast, efficiently. Would definitely hire these guys again.
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.
The moving industry in the United States was deregulated with the Household Goods Transportation Act of 1980. This act allowed interstate movers to issue binding or fixed estimates for the first time. Doing so opened the door to hundreds of new moving companies to enter the industry. This led to an increase in competition and soon movers were no longer competing on services but on price. As competition drove prices lower and decreased what were already slim profit margins, "rogue" movers began hijacking personal property as part of a new scam. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) enforces Federal consumer protection regulations related to the interstate shipment of household goods (i.e., household moves that cross State lines). FMCSA has held this responsibility since 1999, and the Department of Transportation has held this responsibility since 1995 (the Interstate Commerce Commission held this authority prior to its termination in 1995).
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 awardeesspecificallyfocused 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 haspreviouslyagreed to subsidize the Silver Line construction to Reston, Virginia.
By the time 2006 came, there were over 26 million trucks on the United States roads, each hauling over 10 billion short tons of freight (9.1 billion long tons). This was representing almost 70% of the total volume of freight.When, as a driver or an automobile drivers, most automobile drivers arelargelyunfamiliar with large trucks.As as a result of these unaware truck drivers and their massive 18-wheeler'snumerousblind spots.The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has determined that 70% of fatal automobile/tractor trailer accident happen for a reason. That being the result of "unsafe actions of automobile drivers". People, as well as drivers, need to realize the dangers of such large trucks and pay more attention. Likewise for truck drivers as well.
Some trailers canbe towed byan accessible pickup truck or van, which generally need no special permit beyond a regular license. Such examples wouldbe enclosedtoy trailers and motorcycle trailers. Specialized trailers like an open-air motorcycle trailer and bicycle trailers are accessible.Some trailers are much more accessible to small automobiles, as are some simple trailers pulled by a drawbar and riding on a single set of axles.Other trailers also have a variety, such as a utility trailer, travel trailers or campers, etc. to allow for varying sizes of tow vehicles.
