I relocated my business with Transtar and couldn't have been happier.

I had your typical office stuff to move, but quite a bit of heavy equipment as well. From the initial quote process with Patrick through the moving day with a punctual, capable, friendly and patient team (6 chaps, 2 trucks, 2 trips), right on through follow up, I couldn't have been happier with Transtar.

Moving is stressful and hard, but Transtar helps alleviate many of the headaches, without creating any new ones. If you're a business, you need these guys on your RELO Team.

Great work, great service, great price. Five stars.

I simply moved to BURLINGTON, and it was my first huge move so I was somewhat apprehensive about it. I'm so happy I ran with ARPIN MOVING SYSTEMS to help me, since they took a great deal of the worry of moving. The group who came in and stuffed up my things were watchful, proficient, and experienced. My furniture arrived consummately on time and in the same condition I had abandoned it in. I will be utilizing them as a part without bounds.

QuestionIn 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).

QuestionThe 1950's were quite different than the years to come.They were more likely tobe considered"Knights of the Road", if you will, for helping stranded travelers.In these times truck driverswere enviedandwere viewedas an opposition to the book "The Organization Man".Bestseller in 1956, author William H. Whyte's novel describes "the man in the gray flannel suit", who sat in an office every day.He's describing a typical office style job that is very structured with managers watching over everyone. Truck drivers represented the opposite of all these concepts. Popular trucking songs glorified the life of drivers as independent "wanderers".Yet, there were attempts to bring back the factory style efficiency, such as using tachnographs.

Trailer jacks may alsobe usedfor the leveling of the trailer during storage. To list a few common types of trailer jacks are A-frame jacks, swivel jacks, and drop-leg jacks.
