Moving with Charles E. Groff & Sons
Unfortunately this company messed up our move by not sending a crew on the date and time we were to move. When we called to say "Where are you?" we did not receive a "We are so sorry, we messed up, here's how we're going to make it up to you." Instead we heard, "You must have called and changed the date." Really? When we talked with a manager she threw her employee under the bus by saying, "I wish I could hire perfect employees." The moving crew was great once they were assigned to us (5 hours after our move was to take place). They were the most professional, pleasant and responsible employees of the bunch.
These folks were great. They were effective and extremely cautious with all that they moved and were particularly watchful to put each piece precisely where it should have been at the new area. This is the second move I've taken an interest in with this organization, and them two have gone off predictably. In the event that I ever need to move myself they will absolutely get a call from me.
We concede that we were anxious about our turn from Pennsylvania to Florida on the grounds that neither Charles E. Groff or us marked any reports ahead of time. In any case, at 8:00 a.m. on "move day" the truck was at our home and everything went as booked. John and his team were additionally exceptionally expert, and nothing got softened up the move. We very prescribe Groff to make your best course of action.

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.
Relocation, or moving, is the process of vacating a fixed location, such as aresidenceor business, and settling in a different one.A move might be to a nearby location such as in the same neighborhood or a much farther location in a different city or even a different country.Moving usually includes packing up all belongings, transferring them to the new location, and unpacking them. It will also be necessary to update administrative information. This includes tasks such as notifying the post office, changing registration data, change of insurance, services etc. It is important to remember this step in the relocation process.
In 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.
