This organization and it's representatives were great to work with. They were quick with giving a quote to the move - fast to react when I had questions - and brilliant at catching up to affirm the arrangement.
The genuine moving group was the best I've ever experienced. A 3 man group moved a 2 bed loft in Wicker Park to a top floor 2 bed flat in Uptown in under 2 hours. It was stunning. Nothing was broken - they were watchful with each bit of furniture and even wrapped things (I didn't think to wrap our sofa!) for us for no additional charge.
I would prescribe this organization to anybody that likes a straightforward move with persevering representatives that take care of business.
If you need a great moving company go with this one. The guys are honest, hardworking and personable. I had 2 households to move into 1 home. They worked with me to be sure that we got everything including outdoor items. They were efficient - going the extra mile when I asked to have additional items loaded onto the truck since there was room. Everything arrived in great shape. The week of the move was the hottest temperature in 6 years but no complaints from them! I had asked for quotes from Elite and another "national" company. Elite called back in 1 day - the other company finally got back to me after we had moved. If you are looking for a moving company that you can trust - this is it! Price was more than fair. We bought them pizza and had ice water on hand because we were grateful for their hard work. If you need them to pack extra items they come prepared for that as well. I am not one to write reviews but this time I wanted to. Bottom line - great company - great workers!!!!!
The interstate moving industry in the United States maintains regulation by the FMCSA, which is part of the USDOT.With only a small staff (fewer than 20 people) available to patrol hundreds of moving companies, enforcement is difficult.As a result of such a small staff, there arein many cases, no regulations that qualify moving companies as 'reliable'. Without this guarantee, it is difficult to a consumer to make a choice. Although, moving companies can provide and often display a DOT license.
In some states, a business route is designated by adding the letter "B" after the number instead of placing a "Business" sign above it. For example, Arkansas signs US business route 71 as "US 71B". On some route shields and road signs, the word "business" is shortened to just "BUS". This abbreviation is rare and usually avoided to prevent confusion with bus routes.
Public transportation is vital to a large part of society and is in dire need of work and attention.In 2010, the DOT awarded $742.5 million in funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to 11 transit projects. The awardeesspecificallyfocused light rail projects. One includes both a commuter rail extension and a subway project in New York City. The public transportation New York City has to offer is in need of some TLC. Another is working on a rapid bus transit system in Springfield, Oregon. The funds also subsidize a heavy rail project in northern Virginia.This finally completes the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's Metro Silver Line, connecting to Washington, D.C., and the Washington Dulles International Airport.This is important because the DOT haspreviouslyagreed to subsidize the Silver Line construction to Reston, Virginia.
DOT officers of each state are generally in charge of the enforcement of the Hours of Service (HOS). These are sometimes checked when CMVs pass through weigh stations. Drivers found to be in violation of the HOS canbe forcedto stop driving for a certain period of time. This, in turn, maynegativelyaffect the motor carrier's safety rating. Requests to change the HOS are a source of debate. Unfortunately, many surveysindicatedriversroutinelyget away with violating the HOS.Such facts have started yet another debate on whether motor carriers shouldbe requiredto us EOBRs in their vehicles.Relying on paper-based log books does not always seem to enforce the HOS law put in place for the safety of everyone.
