Your The Ideal Move Reviews

I have to put one star in order to be able to post this review

They do not deserve one star.

This move has undoubtedly been one of the most stressful moves of my life
I have moved dozens of times having been an Air Force brat and then living all over the world in my lifetime and I've never ever experienced such incompetence and actual meanness for no reason.

So far after a dozen phone they do not return your calls, they still have not been able to track my furniture.

It has been 22 days since they picked up my things and they haven't been able to deliver my furniture or even tell me where it is.
They only say "maybe it'll be here in a few more days".

I fear for the condition it will be in if and when it arrives.

Professional, careful, efficient and diligent. Guy and his team did a great job and took a lot of the hassle out of the moving process.

We hired Ideal Move today. We have dealt with movers before and we have never had a more pleasant experience. We had 3 movers, Rocco, Rob and Dave. They had a huge job to do (4 flights of stairs and a great deal of furniture, equipment and an excessive amount of boxes moving into 3 more floors at the new place). They were nice, proficient, funny and amazingly productive. The price that was quoted was reasonable in the first place, however they figured out how to get us moved in a fraction of the time expected, despite the fact that they needed to remove an entryway and dismantle a cooler to make it fit. I highly recommend Ideal Move to anybody. I truly need to thank those folks again for the colossal job they did. In the event that you are moving, this company is your most solid option.

Extraordinary movers.....from the beginning to the end. No curve balls toward the end. The cost charged after the move was very quote gave. The movers, Rock, John, and Joel took special care of each box, each bit of furniture, each patio nursery instrument like they were their own belonging. Rock stuffed our storage unit so decisively that all things fit great. Incredible group. This is my second move by the Ideal Move this year. I will hire them again in March 2015 to move into my new house.Thanks so much guys!

Did You Know

QuestionA semi-trailer is almost exactly what it sounds like, it is a trailer without a front axle.Proportionally, its weightis supported bytwo factors. The weight falls upon a road tractor or by a detachable front axle assembly, known as a dolly. Generally, a semi-traileris equippedwith legs, known in the industry as "landing gear". This means it canbe loweredto support it when itis uncoupled. In the United States, a trailer may not exceed a length of 57 ft (17.37 m) on interstate highways.However, it is possible to link two smaller trailers together to reach a length of 63 ft (19.20 m).


Implemented in 2014, the National Registry, requires all Medical Examiners (ME) who conduct physical examinations and issue medical certifications for interstate CMV drivers to complete training on FMCSA’s physical qualification standards, must pass a certification test. This is to demonstrate competence through periodic training and testing. CMV drivers whose medical certifications expire must use MEs on the National Registry for their examinations.

FMCSA has reached its goal of at least 40,000 certified MEs signing onto the registry. All this means is that drivers or movers can now find certified medical examiners throughout the country who can perform their medical exam. FMCSA is preparing to issue a follow-on “National Registry 2” rule stating new requirements. In this case, MEs are to submit medical certificate information on a daily basis. These daily updates are sent to the FMCSA, which will then be sent to the states electronically. This process will dramatically decrease the chance of drivers falsifying medical cards.

QuestionThe basics of all trucks are not difficult, as they share common construction.They are generally made of chassis, a cab, an area for placing cargo or equipment, axles, suspension, road wheels, and engine and a drive train. Pneumatic, hydraulic, water, and electrical systems may also be present. Many also tow one or more trailers or semi-trailers, which also vary inmultipleways but are similar as well.

QuestionThe decade of the 70's in the United States was a memorable one, especially for the notion of truck driving. This seemed todramaticallyincrease popularity among trucker culture.Throughout this era, and even in today's society, truck driversare romanticizedas modern-day cowboys and outlaws.These stereotypes were due to their use of Citizens Band (CB) radios to swap information with other drivers. Informationregardingthe locations of police officers and transportation authorities. The general public took an interest in the truckers 'way of life' as well. Both drivers and the public took interest in plaid shirts, trucker hats, CB radios, and CB slang.

QuestionHeavy trucks. A cement mixer is an example of Class 8 heavy trucks. Heavy trucks are the largest on-road trucks, Class 8. These include vocational applications such as heavy dump trucks, concrete pump trucks, and refuse hauling, as well as ubiquitous long-haul 6×4 and 4x2 tractor units. Road damage and wear increase very rapidly with the axle weight. The axle weight is the truck weight divided by the number of axles, but the actual axle weight depends on the position of the load over the axles. The number of steering axles and the suspension type also influence the amount of the road wear. In many countries with good roads, a six-axle truck may have a maximum weight over 50 tons (49 long tons; 55 short tons).
