Michael Sosa and Justin O. did an excellent job and were very careful with moving my items. Simi was a pleasure to meet as well. I was, however, given a quote of $545 and the actual cost ended up being $730.50. That is quite a far ways off from the quoted price.

I have some delicate stuff, and nothing was harmed amid transportation. Proceed, book a move with them now.

I recently moved to Park Slope and I should say that U. Santini was great! I was nervous on moving day, yet the movers arrived early and went above and beyond! Tito was the name of part of the crew and he took the time to reassemble my child's crib and set up in my new home! They were careful with the dividers when getting furniture and even put paper down so my wood floor wouldn't get scratched. The owner, Dan came by and checked in middle of the day to ensure all was going well. Once more, I was very surprised! Now that I'm a local I stop by his office every so often to see his dog, Lola and have been able to know his dad who still works the business. Extraordinary company, incredible family and awesome experience! I adore my new Park Slope home...but having U. Santini move me practically makes me want to move just to work with them once more! I think that is why they've been doing business for so long.

I can't recommend this moving company enough. This is the third moving company I have employed and they are by a wide margin the most experienced, quick and careful with your belonging. The move was completely smooth , they painstakingly set up our furniture back together and were troopers as they went all up and down the stairs without complaints in our new home which didn't have an AC yet. We lived above Santini before and used them for our last move, we never, ever had an issue with any of their staff. They are attentive, respectful and proficient in their work both with their clients and the eachother all in all. Thank you Brian and group for the awesome service!

QuestionWith the partial deregulation of the trucking industry in 1980 by the Motor Carrier Act, trucking companies increased. The workforce wasdrasticallyde-unionized. As a result, drivers received a lower payoverall.Losing its spotlight in the popular culture, trucking had become less intimate as some unspoken competition broke out.However, the deregulation only increased the competition and productivity with the trucking industry as a whole. This was beneficial to the America consumer by reducing costs.In 1982 the Surface TransportationAssistanceAct established a federalminimumtruck weight limits. Thus, trucks were finally standardized truck size and weight limits across the country.This was also put in to place so that across country traffic on the Interstate Highways resolved the issue of the 'barrier states'.

QuestionAs most people have experienced, moving does involve having the appropriate materials.Some materials you might find at home or may be more resourceful to save money while others may choose to pay for everything.Either way materials such as boxes, paper, tape, and bubble wrap with which to pack box-able and/or protect fragile household goods. It is also used toconsolidatethe carrying and stacking on moving day. Self-service moving companies offer another viable option. It involves the person moving buying a space on one or more trailers or shipping containers. These containers are thenprofessionallydriven to the new location.

QuestionThe 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).

Question

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 Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is a division of the USDOT specializing in highway transportation. The agency's major influential activities are generally separated into two different "programs". The first is the Federal-aid Highway Program.This provides financial aid to support the construction, maintenance, and operation of the U.S. highway network.The second program, the Federal Lands Highway Program, shares a similar name with different intentions.The purpose of this program is to improve transportation involving Federal and Tribal lands.They also focus on preserving "national treasures" for the historic and beatific enjoyment for all.
