If you want to hire slow movers at an hourly rate, this company is for you! The workers to 2 breaks from a move time 9am-12pm. Paying for breaks for workers is one thing, but after they left I realized that the driver Robert racked up an extra 45 mile that he charged me for on my bill! Those were not breaks, they were joy rides out of the way to waste my time and my husband's hard earned money. Also, it was not 3 movers working all at the same time. I have hired 2 professional movers that did the job in half the amount of time! I will never use this company again or refer them to anyone! Be aware of charming personalities and do not mistake that as genuine kindness. These kind of people will steal from you.
From the move coordinator to the actual packers and delivery men, everyone was very helpful and courteous. Moving is never fun, but they tried to make it as painless as possible. The guys did a good job of getting things to the places I designated and were patient with me as I was juggling a few things at a time while they were here.
We hired Still Transfer to load a POD for the first part of our cross town move. The crew of three - including Lamar & Persian were absolutely phenomenal. Friendly, punctual and extremely hard-working and very capable in their container management skills - so impressive that everything fit!!
I would highly recommend them and we'll be using them again this week for the unload...
During the latter part of the 20th century, we saw a decline of the trucking culture.Coinciding with this decline was a decline of the image of truck drivers, as they becamenegativelystigmatized.As a result of such negativity, it makes sense that truck drivers werefrequentlyportrayed as the "bad guy(s)" in movies.
Advocation for better transportation beganhistoricallyin the late 1870s of the United States. This is when the Good Roads Movement first occurred, lasting all the way throughout the 1920s. Bicyclist leaders advocated for improved roads.Their acts led to the turning of local agitation into the national political movement it became.
The main purpose of the HOS regulation is to prevent accidents due to driver fatigue. To do this, the number of driving hours per day, as well as the number of driving hours per week, havebeen limited.Another measure to prevent fatigue is to keep drivers on a 21 to 24-hour schedulein order tomaintain a natural sleep/wake cycle. Drivers must take a dailyminimumperiod of rest andare allowedlonger "weekend" rest periods. This is in hopes to combat cumulative fatigue effects thataccrueon a weekly basis.
Business routes generally follow the original routing of the numbered route through a city or town.Beginning in the 1930s and lasting thru the 1970s was an era marking a peak in large-scale highway construction in the United States. U.S. Highways and Interstates weretypicallybuilt in particular phases.Their first phase of development began with the numbered route carrying traffic through the center of a city or town.The second phase involved the construction of bypasses around the central business districts of the towns they began.As bypass construction continued, original parts of routes that had once passed straight thru a city would often become a "business route".
