Moving with Palmetto Moving Services
I highly regret hiring these movers. I feel I was overcharged, and that could be miscommunication, but we did pay $500 to have one 10x20 storage unit moved less than 3 miles. BUT, my real issue is that the driver hit our mailbox, and they didn't repair. Moving took place on Thursday, and I was assured by the owner, Perry Farrow, that it would be repaired. I told them that my home was closing Monday, and it needed to be done Sunday by 3 PM. On Saturday he assured me someone would be there that afternoon to repair. No one ever showed, I tried calling and texting....not a word from them. My attorney even tried to reach them for 4 days, since our closing was pushed to Friday. He never responded or apologized. Extremely unprofessional.
Perry and his crew were outstanding. They were extremely helpful and careful with moving our belongings from storage into our new home. And, very patient with me as we shifted furniture from one spot to another. They went above and beyond. Very pleased with their services.
Worst guy to get your stuff moved. He was on time for the estimate. He gave 4 hour move calculation (his employee - Keith said that Perry always gives lower estimate to get the business). First of all, they were late. One of the employee - James, said that he lost $400 at a bar playing fishtank gambling game. Keith was talking on the phone all the time with his girlfriend. That four hour move took more than 7 hours. Later, Perry said that he had a family emergency and can't come. As soon as we went inside the house, he came in his truck to drive the truck. Both- Keith and James said that they don't know how to drive that truck. There was furniture damages. However, Perry avoided coming and haven't come yet. Do not hire this guy.
I required an evaluation to get a washer and dryer and convey it. Their base is 3 hours, which I believe is ridiculous.Why does there have to a base? Frightful organization!
Incredible experience! I have used these folks a few times. I highly suggest their service. The owner, Perry is great! Friendly and an expert! I wouldn't use any other person!
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 are in 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.
Trailer stability can be defined as the tendency of a trailer to dissipate side-to-side motion. The initial motion may be caused by aerodynamic forces, such as from a cross wind or a passing vehicle. One common criterion for stability is the center of mass location with respect to the wheels, which can usually be detected by tongue weight. If the center of mass of the trailer is behind its wheels, therefore having a negative tongue weight, the trailer will likely be unstable. Another parameter which is less commonly a factor is the trailer moment of inertia. Even if the center of mass is forward of the wheels, a trailer with a long load, and thus large moment of inertia, may be unstable.
Words have always had a different meaning or have been used interchangeably with others across all cultures. In the United States, Canada, and the Philippines the word "truck" is mostly reserved for larger vehicles. Although in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa, the word "truck" is generally reserved for large vehicles. In Australia and New Zealand, a pickup truck is usually called a ute, short for "utility". While over in South Africa it is called a bakkie (Afrikaans: "small open container"). The United Kingdom, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Ireland, and Hong Kong use the "lorry" instead of truck, but only for medium and heavy types.
Known as a truck in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, it is essentially a motor vehicle designed to transport cargo. Otherwise known as a lorry in the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, and Indian Subcontinent. Trucks vary not only in their types, but also in size, power, and configuration, the smallest being mechanically like an automobile. Commercial trucks may be very large and powerful, configured to mount specialized equipment. These are necessary in the case of fire trucks, concrete mixers, and suction excavators etc.
