Just moved from Indianapolis, IN to Columbia, SC metro areas (mid-December 2017). Eric W. was the overall coordinator, and Michael V. was the primary onsite person.
Eric W. came to my home (and Storage Unit) in November. He was professional, and detailed. He gave me a quote for everything I asked. Initially I wasn't going to go with American Way since a competitor tried to poke holes at their statements. I first went with the competitor, but a day later after finding both American Way and National Van Lines are A+ with the BBB, I decided to go with them mainly due to their professionality.
The day the packers were supposed to show was a mess. There were a ton of people sick, and a truck was broke down, so, at the end, they needed to come moving day. I was not pleased with this, since I like to avoid last minute stress, but at the end, everyone needs to remember, stuff happens, and what makes one company better than the other is how they deal with bad stuff.
I'm not going to say moving day was without stress. It was, but Eric from a coordination side, and Michael, from an on-site side, did everything to make it work. It took longer because of the packers and movers working at the same time, but it did get done.
The biggest surprise was how fast they were able to get everything to its new home. We closed on the new house on 12/15, and the furniture was delivered on 12/16 (8am, as promised). This was way shorter than the potential date of 12/26. Absolutely no complaints. Also, since we did a Do Not Exceeds quote, even though the weight of the truck was slightly higher than estimated, they honored their agreement.
Moving everything back in day was mainly with the same people who loaded the truck up. That was a big, happy surprise to me, and made keeping track of the inventory that much easier. Between their knowledge of what they packed, and the system they used for inventory control it went smooth and simple.
I can't say enough. Out of the many moves I have done, this was the easiest, most straightforward. Things were far from perfect, but in each challenge American Way and National Van Lines, addressed and overcame it.
Thanks to the entire team!

Touched base on time, incredible demeanor, and helped us move into our new mountain home - which talks miles for an organization willing to move us up here. We will call these folks again if we require moving administrations. Exceptionally suggested!
Prior tothe 20th century, freight was generally transported overland via trains and railroads.During this time, trains were essential, and they werehighlyefficient at moving large amounts of freight.But, they could only deliver that freight to urban centers for distribution by horse-drawn transport.Though there were several trucks throughout this time, theywere usedmore as space for advertising that for actual utility.At this time, the use of range for trucks was quite challenging.The use of electric engines, lack of paved rural roads, and small load capacities limited trucks to most short-haul urban routes.
In 1976, the number one hit on the Billboard chart was "Convoy," a novelty song by C.W. McCall about a convoy of truck drivers evading speed traps and toll booths across America. The song inspired the 1978 action film Convoy directed by Sam Peckinpah. After the film's release, thousands of independent truck drivers went on strike and participated in violent protests during the 1979 energy crisis (although similar strikes had occurred during the 1973 energy crisis).
With 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'.
The feature film "Joy Ride" premiered in 2001, portraying the story of two college-age brothers who by a CB radio while taking a road trip.Although the plot seems lighthearted, it takes a quick turn after one of the brothers attempts a prank on an unknown truck driver. They soon find out the dangerous intentions of this killer driver, who is set on getting his revenge. Seven years later in 2008 the sequel "Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead" came out on DVD only.Similar toits predecessor, the plot involves another murdering truck driver, a.k.a "Rusty Nail". Heessentiallyplays psychological mind games with a young couple on a road trip.
