Amazing movers! We were completely discouraged and overwhelmed at the prospect of packing up our home and moving, but then James, Douglas and Andrew arrived. James took the time to explain everything they would be doing and answer all of our questions. They were unstoppable and packed everything with great care, and a smile. We were also fortunate to have James and Douglas deliver our endless boxes to our new home (3 hours away). They carried each piece of furniture and all our boxes up 3 flights of stairs, again with great professionalism and a smile. Everything arrived safely and nothing was broken or scratched in our move. Although moving is still not something I hope to do again soon, James, Douglas, and Andrew from Olympic Movers made it flawless and much less stressful. Thank You!
The Olympic moving and storage team of James, Doug and Andrew are a packing tornado! They had me packed up in no time, and I had a town house full of stuff. Highly recomended. I would ask for them specifically.
“Country music scholar Bill Malone has gone so far as to say that trucking songs account for the largest component of work songs in the country music catalog. For a style of music that has, since its commercial inception in the 1920s, drawn attention to the coal man, the steel drivin’ man, the railroad worker, and the cowboy, this certainly speaks volumes about the cultural attraction of the trucker in the American popular consciousness.” — Shane Hamilton

Throughout the United States, bypass routes are a special type of route mostcommonlyused on an alternative routing of a highway around a town.Specificallywhen the main route of the highway goes through the town.Originally, these routeswere designatedas "truck routes" as a means to divert trucking traffic away from towns.However, this name was later changed by AASHTO in 1959 to what we now call a "bypass".Many "truck routes" continue to remain regardless that the mainline of the highway prohibits trucks.
Commercial trucks in the U.S. pay higher road taxes on a State level than the road vehicles and are subject to extensive regulation. This begs the question of why these trucks are paying more. I'll tell you.Justto name a few reasons, commercial truck pay higher road use taxes.They are much bigger and heavier than most other vehicles, resulting in more wear and tear on the roadways.They are also on the road for extended periods of time, which also affects the interstate as well as roads and passing through towns. Yet, rules on use taxes differ among jurisdictions.
