A friend recommended I call ideal to get an estimate for my upcoming move.

When I first spoke with them, they were attentive and diligent. I told them I wasn't ready to firm book and that was ok.

Three days later I got a call asking to set up the moving times and as I said initially i wasn't ready to firm book.
Long story short, they were nasty and very uncooperative on this front. Needless to say, they will not be moving my furniture.

I was EXTREMELY content with our turn. It was valued reasonable, the movers were on time, nothing got broken or lost.

What I was particularly awed with was with how the managed issues. In any move there will be issues. For my situation, my lord bed wasn't assemble effectively. I saw this before they had left, and the team lead instantly and by and by went and settled it, and did not charge for an ideal opportunity to alter it.

Perfect Moving was extraordinary!! My mother was so busy at her new home so it was upon me to pack and move her home. I'm disabled and can't lift more than a couple pounds. A friend of mine recommended them since she had used them a year back and was truly content with everything. I'm happy I took her recommendation. It was an holiday weekend and they were still available. I spoke with them thru email and telephone, which was truly convenient. The folks that came were friendly and pleasant. They were productive and in general I am very much satisfied with their service. I will call them again and I will recommend Ideal Moving to everybody I know. Much thanks! Ideal Moving saved the day!!

Keep away from THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS!! I asked for quotes from moving companies. Most sent me an email, with a follow up call and stopped when I did not call back. Ideal Moving and Storage called and called, messaged and texted me 19 times, always bringing down their cost. When I finally got a contract with them, they messaged me the following day and said they couldn't respect their agreement cost since it was too low (the day before the move).

I was surprised and told that we have an agreement and they need to respect it, and they won't. Next their business administrator calls me and continues to verbally abuse me by letting me know I'm attempting to direct the expense of my move. Mind you, Joseph Cem messaged me at 5 a.m. on July 4th to send me another quote I did not ask for. At that point she sends me an email, and lets me know i can't do this, blah, blah, blah.

This company utilizes BAIT and SWITCH strategies to inspire you to sign, and afterward when you're when absolutely necessary, they hit you with the higher expenses, and afterward "offer to bail you out by meeting you midway." They never admitted their mistake and blamed it on their software. What a pack of losers!!!

QuestionAs we've learned the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 was crucial in the construction of the Interstate Highway System. Described as an interconnected network of the controlled-access freeway. It also allowed larger trucks to travel at higher speeds through rural and urban areas alike.This act was also the first to allow the first federal largest gross vehicle weight limits for trucks, set at 73,208 pounds (33,207 kg). The very same year, Malcolm McLean pioneered modern containerized intermodal shipping. This allowed for the more efficient transfer of cargo between truck, train, and ships.

QuestionMany modern trucksare powered bydiesel engines, although small to medium size trucks with gas engines exist in the United States.The European Union rules that vehicles with a gross combination of mass up to 3,500 kg (7,716 lb) are also known as light commercial vehicles. Any vehicles exceeding that weightare knownas large goods vehicles.

QuestionDuring the latter part of the 20th century, we saw a decline of the trucking culture.Coinciding with this decline was a decline of the image of truck drivers, as they becamenegativelystigmatized.As a result of such negativity, it makes sense that truck drivers werefrequentlyportrayed as the "bad guy(s)" in movies.


A circumferential route refers to a public transportation system that follows the route in the shape of a circle.Over time a nickname developed in the European Union, calling transportation networks such as these a "ring road".This is no surprise as Europe has several famous "ring roads" such as the Berliner Ring, the Brussels Ring, the Amsterdam Ring, the Boulevard Périphérique around Paris and the Leeds Inner and Outer ring roads. Other countries adopted the term as well which in turn made the name go international.Australia's Melbourne's Western Ring Road and India's Hyderabad's Outer Ring Road both adopted the name.Howeverin Canada, the term is mostcommonlyused, with "orbital" used to a much lesser extent.
On the contrary, the United States calls many "ring roads" as belt-lines, beltways, or loops instead.For example, the Capital Beltway around Washington, D.C. Some ring roads use terminology such as "Inner Loop" and "Outer Loop".This is, of course, for the sake of directional sense, since compass directions cannotbe determinedaround the entire loop.

QuestionIn 1933, as a part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “New Deal”, the National Recovery Administration requested that each industry creates a “code of fair competition”. The American Highway Freight Association and the Federated Trucking Associations of America met in the spring of 1933 to speak for the trucking association and begin discussing a code. By summer of 1933 the code of competition was completed and ready for approval. The two organizations had also merged to form the American Trucking Associations. The code was approved on February 10, 1934. On May 21, 1934, the first president of the ATA, Ted Rogers, became the first truck operator to sign the code. A special "Blue Eagle" license plate was created for truck operators to indicate compliance with the code.
