Moving is a distressing knowledge yet the team at Swan made it as simple as would be prudent for us. We've moved ordinarily and this was the best one yet! We were dealt with exceptionally well starting with Dan who furnished us with boxes and good backing for our fractional pack. The packers did the critical step and were quick, perfect and extremely polite. Eric and his team stacked our 28,000 in record time with cautious consideration. The empty 2000 miles later went as easily. Eric even offered to scoop snow in prep for the empty and dropped by on out of town two or after three days and took the utilized boxes and pressing paper out of our way. We aren't completely unloaded yet however everything looks in place. I would suggest Swan without a second thought!

Swans helped us move a month ago. They made an incredible showing all the way. Exceptionally expert and brief persevering team. We evaluated different movers, they were less costly and we had an incredible ordeal.

From the initial phone call to the move of our growing business, it could not have gone smoother. I was highly impressed with the level of service they provided and you can tell they are pros and have their systems dialed in so you don't have to worry. I highly recommend them!

Did You Know


The intention of a trailer coupler is to secure the trailer to the towing vehicle. It is an important piece, as the trailer couple attaches to the trailer ball. This then forms a ball and socket connection.It allows for relative movement between the towing vehicle and trailer while towing over uneven road surfaces. The trailer ball shouldbe mountedto the rear bumper or to a drawbar, which may be removable. The drawbar secures to the trailer hitch by inserting it into the hitch receiver and pinning it.
The three most common types of couplers used are straight couplers, A-frame couplers, and adjustable couplers.Another option is bumper-pull hitches in which case draw bars can exert a large amount of leverage on the tow vehicle.This makes it harder to recover from a swerving situation (thus it may not be the safest choice depending on your trip).

QuestionA trailer is not very difficult to categorize. In general, it is an unpowered vehicle towed by a powered vehicle. Trailers are most commonly used for the transport of goods and materials. Although some do enjoy recreational usage of trailers as well.

QuestionThe year 1611 marked an important time for trucks, as that is when the word originated. The usage of "truck" referred to the small strong wheels on ships' cannon carriages. Further extending its usage in 1771, it came to refer to carts for carrying heavy loads. In 1916 it became shortened, calling it a "motor truck".While since the 1930's its expanded application goes as faras tosay "motor-powered load carrier".

QuestionThe 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.

QuestionAs we know in the trucking industry, some trailers are part of large trucks, which we call semi-trailer trucks for transportation of cargo.Trailers may alsobe usedin a personal manner as well, whether for personal or small business purposes.
