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

QuestionIn the United States, the term 'full trailer'is usedfor a freight trailer supported by front and rear axles and pulled by a drawbar. This term isslightlydifferent in Europe, where a full traileris knownas an A-frame drawbar trail. A full trailer is 96 or 102 in (2.4 or 2.6 m) wide and 35 or 40 ft (11 or 12 m) long.

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.


The concept of a bypass is a simple one. It is a road or highway thatpurposelyavoids or "bypasses" a built-up area, town, or village.Bypasseswere createdwith the intent to let through traffic flow without having to get stuck in local traffic. In general theyare supposedto reduce congestion in a built-up area. By doing so, road safety willgreatlyimprove.
A bypass designated for trucks traveling a long distance, either commercial or otherwise,is calleda truck route.


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,justlike 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 truckswere determinedand 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 amaximumspeed of 15 miles per hour (24km/h) continued to limit the use of these trucks tomostlyurban areas.

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.
