They moved efficiently and quickly, while being very careful with our items, wrapping them well and being super aware of the space so as not to damage anything. They were very professional and friendly, I enjoyed moving with these guys. We will definitely call this company the next time we move again!
They moved us from Greenpoint to Jackson Heights. A team of five agreeable folks (Marko, Tasa, Jhon, Melvin and Ted) appeared on time, stuffed every one of our things, and stacked and unstack their truck in six short hours. They even assembled our bed for us in the new condo - just for about $2100 (counting packing materials and tip).
I couldn't have been more fulfilled.
Supper happy, in new home and finally settled. Going to open a nice bottle of wine tonight and invite my girlfriend over. Lift thank you for the move today it was a long one but we did it.

These testsessentiallyled to the 1964 recommendation by AASHTO to Congress.The recommendation determined the gross weight limit for trucks tobe determined bya bridge formula table. This includes table based on axle lengths, instead of a state upper limit. By the time 1970 came around, there were over 18 million truck on America's roads.
