Horrible! Zero ethics. They bid $7,400 for a small two bedroom house then charged $12,000 when they came to load.

For those earlier pictures with damages on the boxes. I share your sentiment and I am sorry this happen to your boxes. Please remember to use ONLY IMEREX BOXES when shipping your items because they are a lot STRONGER QUALITY than the others , Can carry up to 220 lbs. The POOR QUALITY which are NOT IMEREX boxes has a tendency of breaking down hence the tear on the sides which a lot of times items a falling out of the boxes. when they are out for distribution in the Phils. Imerex Staff in Carson strapped them securely before loading them to Container to the Phils. When they arrived and unload these heavy boxes in IMEREX Manila Warehouse, they needed to be taped before they are delivered to the Receiver. . I havent had any problems with them.

Very very shity company too call for moving first off they were late. Both movers complaind the hole time about how they hate their jobs an wanted too take a marijuana break . most of our nice things ended up broken or either scratched up.. And on top of that their thieves one will try to get you all together and talk to you outside while the other ones going through your belongings they stole $940 cash out of our drawer... and apparently the owners aren't willing to work with us we have filed a police report and are taking it from there very very very poor company for moving. If you love your nice things and enjoy having them I would most certainly call another moving company because all my sons moving are nothing but thieves and have police reports to prove it if anyone would like to see!!!!!

Your crew (Tyler B.; Hunter G.; Nick, Kevin, and Derrek) did an outstanding job in completing the move of our furniture, numerous boxed items, a piano located in the basement of our home, a heavy sofa bed, etc. to a controlled temperature storage unit near our home. We were amazed on their ability to stack these items to make maximum use of the storage unit, and the overflow (boxes) to an adjacent unit. They were very courteous and wasted no time in the move. We would like to have this same crew back for the second part of our move to a rental unit later this month. These guys are rated 15 on a 1-10 scale.

AMAZING! I called 6 different places in Dayton that all gave me the same quote for 2 guys for 6 hours. Tobin Bros was the only company to come to my home, look around and give me a quote that was more than half of what the others charged for the same guys and hours. They were on time, polite and very knowledgeable. It was 95 degrees and they worked hard to ensure they were finished within the time they said they would be! We were all moved in and settled before 4pm! Definitely recommend them!!

I would not recomment this organization to anybody. While the movers that showed up and really did my turn were pleasant and amicable the same can not be said for the proprietor David Unger. During the time spent the move, my floor was harmed in a few spots. When I reached the proprietor about this, I was given the circled and in the end they sent somebody out to take a gander at the floor. Until that point, I was satisfied with the organization. Be that as it may... Tragically Mr.Unger let his conscience act as a burden and requested payme t in brimming with his moving administrations before they would even consider repairing my harm. I offered to pay half of the moving costs now and half when the repairs were finished however he requested full installment. To finish things off, the following day Mr.Unger called and left an undermining voice message on my telephone saying he was going to "take me to court" and he can not hold up to "see me in person"... What sort of trustworthy entrepreneur acts like that? Surely NOT one I would ever send any of my companions to....

I won't say anything terrible. I do have a few suggestions. They do have an incredible cost for the quote I got. Once the movers showed up they charged me more. Envision attempting to deny with no choice as you have a move out date. I was a prisoner to the circumstance. Amid the quote I recorded in point of interest all things. Drivers were late, did not have space on their truck and needed to complete two days after the fact. I wish I would have purchased the redesigned protection. Numerous things were lost and harmed. They didn't pay out the $/lb in the agreement guaranteeing restorative harm is not secured. Envision furniture that has slashes in it. Not secured at full rate because of it simply being corrective. Additionally they confessed to losing things on the telephone yet did not pay for them since I didn't by and by state it on the conveyance receipt. The driver would not sit tight for me to check each thing. I got the administration I paid for. I will spend more later on.

Just moved from Indianapolis, IN to Columbia, SC metro areas (mid-December 2017). Eric W. was the overall coordinator, and Michael V. was the primary onsite person. Eric W. came to my home (and Storage Unit) in November. He was professional, and detailed. He gave me a quote for everything I asked. Initially I wasn't going to go with American Way since a competitor tried to poke holes at their statements. I first went with the competitor, but a day later after finding both American Way and National Van Lines are A+ with the BBB, I decided to go with them mainly due to their professionality. The day the packers were supposed to show was a mess. There were a ton of people sick, and a truck was broke down, so, at the end, they needed to come moving day. I was not pleased with this, since I like to avoid last minute stress, but at the end, everyone needs to remember, stuff happens, and what makes one company better than the other is how they deal with bad stuff. I'm not going to say moving day was without stress. It was, but Eric from a coordination side, and Michael, from an on-site side, did everything to make it work. It took longer because of the packers and movers working at the same time, but it did get done. The biggest surprise was how fast they were able to get everything to its new home. We closed on the new house on 12/15, and the furniture was delivered on 12/16 (8am, as promised). This was way shorter than the potential date of 12/26. Absolutely no complaints. Also, since we did a Do Not Exceeds quote, even though the weight of the truck was slightly higher than estimated, they honored their agreement. Moving everything back in day was mainly with the same people who loaded the truck up. That was a big, happy surprise to me, and made keeping track of the inventory that much easier. Between their knowledge of what they packed, and the system they used for inventory control it went smooth and simple. I can't say enough. Out of the many moves I have done, this was the easiest, most straightforward. Things were far from perfect, but in each challenge American Way and National Van Lines, addressed and overcame it. Thanks to the entire team!

So much damage it's unbelievable. The movers were exhausted and said it was their 3rd move. My leather couch is shredded on both ends. My dining table and Ashley bedroom set has dents, paint from for jams, and scrapes all over it. My bed is badly torn. The movers said they didn't have the proper equipment to move it. Calling the store they just said to email the pics which I did and to contact a hotline to fix my things. The movers said my things were already damaged like that. Never use this company! I'm going to put reviews everywhere and contact BBB. I've used movers several times and NEVER have I had my things destroyed like this!

Light trucks are classified this way because they are car-sized, yet in the U.S. they can be no more than 6,300 kg (13,900 lb). These are used by not only used by individuals but also businesses as well. In the UK they may not weigh more than 3,500 kg (7,700 lb) and are authorized to drive with a driving license for cars. Pickup trucks, popular in North America, are most seen in North America and some regions of Latin America, Asia, and Africa. Although Europe doesn't seem to follow this trend, where the size of the commercial vehicle is most often made as vans.

Alongside the many different trailers provided are motorcycle trailers. They are designed to haul motorcycles behind an automobile or truck. Depending on size and capability, some trailer may be able to carry several motorcycles or perhaps just one. They specifically designed this trailer to meet the needs of motorcyclists. They carry motorcycles, have ramps, and include tie-downs. There may be a utility trailer adapted permanently or occasionally to haul one or more motorcycles.

A commercial driver's license (CDL) is a driver's license required to operate large or heavy vehicles.

The Motor Carrier Act, passed by Congress in 1935, replace the code of competition. The authorization the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) place was to regulate the trucking industry. Since then the ICC has been long abolished, however, it did quite a lot during its time. Based on the recommendations given by the ICC, Congress enacted the first hours of services regulation in 1938. This limited driving hours of truck and bus drivers. In 1941, the ICC reported that inconsistent weight limitation imposed by the states cause problems to effective interstate truck commerce.

In the United States, shipments larger than about 7,000 kg (15,432 lb) are classified as truckload freight (TL). It is more efficient and affordable for a large shipment to have exclusive use of one larger trailer. This is opposed to having to share space on a smaller Less than Truckload freight carrier.

Another film released in 1975, White Line Fever, also involved truck drivers. It tells the story of a Vietnam War veteran who returns home to take over his father's trucking business. But, he soon finds that corrupt shippers are trying to force him to carry illegal contraband. While endorsing another negative connotation towards the trucking industry, it does portray truck drivers with a certain wanderlust.

The Federal Bridge Law handles relations between the gross weight of the truck, the number of axles, and the spacing between them. This is how they determine is the truck can be on the Interstate Highway system. Each state gets to decide the maximum, under the Federal Bridge Law. They determine by vehicle in combination with axle weight on state and local roads

Medium trucks are larger than light but smaller than heavy trucks. In the US, they are defined as weighing between 13,000 and 33,000 pounds (6,000 and 15,000 kg). For the UK and the EU, the weight is between 3.5 and 7.5 tons (3.9 and 8.3 tons). Local delivery and public service (dump trucks, garbage trucks, and fire-fighting trucks) are around this size.

In some states, a business route is designated by adding the letter "B" after the number instead of placing a "Business" sign above it. For example, Arkansas signs US business route 71 as "US 71B". On some route shields and road signs, the word "business" is shortened to just "BUS". This abbreviation is rare and usually avoided to prevent confusion with bus routes.

The United States' Interstate Highway System is full of bypasses and loops with the designation of a three-digit number. Usually beginning with an even digit, it is important to note that this pattern is highly inconsistent. For example, in Des Moines, Iowa the genuine bypass is the main route. More specifically, it is Interstate 35 and Interstate 80, with the loop into downtown Des Moines being Interstate 235. As it is illustrated in this example, they do not always consistently begin with an even number. However, the 'correct' designation is exemplified in Omaha, Nebraska. In Omaha, Interstate 480 traverses the downtown area, which is bypassed by Interstate 80, Interstate 680, and Interstate 95. Interstate 95 then in turn goes through Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Furthermore, Interstate 295 is the bypass around Philadelphia, which leads into New Jersey. Although this can all be rather confusing, it is most important to understand the Interstate Highway System and the role bypasses play.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is an agency within the United States Department of Transportation. The purpose of the FMCSA is to regulate safety within the trucking and moving industry in the United States. The FMCSA enforces safety precautions that reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving large trucks and buses.

The FMCSA is a well-known division of the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT). It is generally responsible for the enforcement of FMCSA regulations. The driver of a CMV must keep a record of working hours via a log book. This record must reflect the total number of hours spent driving and resting, as well as the time at which the change of duty status occurred. In place of a log book, a motor carrier may choose to keep track of their hours using an electronic on-board recorder (EOBR). This automatically records the amount of time spent driving the vehicle.

The Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula is a mathematical formula used in the United States to determine the appropriate gross weight for a long distance moving vehicle, based on the axle number and spacing. Enforced by the Department of Transportation upon long-haul truck drivers, it is used as a means of preventing heavy vehicles from damaging roads and bridges. This is especially in particular to the total weight of a loaded truck, whether being used for commercial moving services or for long distance moving services in general.   According to the Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula, the total weight of a loaded truck (tractor and trailer, 5-axle rig) cannot exceed 80,000 lbs in the United States. Under ordinary circumstances, long-haul equipment trucks will weight about 15,000 kg (33,069 lbs). This leaves about 20,000 kg (44,092 lbs) of freight capacity. Likewise, a load is limited to the space available in the trailer, normally with dimensions of 48 ft (14.63 m) or 53 ft (16.15 m) long, 2.6 m (102.4 in) wide, 2.7 m (8 ft 10.3 in) high and 13 ft 6 in or 4.11 m high.

The word cargo is in reference to particular goods that are generally used for commercial gain. Cargo transportation is generally meant to mean by ship, boat, or plane. However, the term now applies to all types of freight, now including goods carried by train, van, or truck. This term is now used in the case of goods in the cold-chain, as perishable inventory is always cargo in transport towards its final home. Even when it is held in climate-controlled facilities, it is important to remember perishable goods or inventory have a short life.

Although there are exceptions, city routes are interestingly most often found in the Midwestern area of the United States. Though they essentially serve the same purpose as business routes, they are different. They feature "CITY" signs as opposed to "BUSINESS" signs above or below route shields. Many of these city routes are becoming irrelevant for today's transportation. Due to this, they are being eliminated in favor of the business route designation.

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 were typically built 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".

With the onset of trucking culture, truck drivers often became portrayed as protagonists in popular media. Author Shane Hamilton, who wrote "Trucking Country: The Road to America's Wal-Mart Economy", focuses on truck driving. He explores the history of trucking and while connecting it development in the trucking industry. It is important to note, as Hamilton discusses the trucking industry and how it helps the so-called big-box stores dominate the U.S. marketplace. Hamilton certainly takes an interesting perspective historically speaking.

Some trailers can be towed by an accessible pickup truck or van, which generally need no special permit beyond a regular license. Such examples would be enclosed toy trailers and motorcycle trailers. Specialized trailers like an open-air motorcycle trailer and bicycle trailers are accessible. Some trailers are much more accessible to small automobiles, as are some simple trailers pulled by a drawbar and riding on a single set of axles. Other trailers also have a variety, such as a utility trailer, travel trailers or campers, etc. to allow for varying sizes of tow vehicles.

The industry intends to both consumers as well as moving companies, this is why there are Ministers of Transportation in the industry. They are there to set and maintain laws and regulations in place to create a safer environment. It offers its members professional service training and states the time that movers have been in existence. It also provides them with federal government representation and statistical industry reporting. Additionally, there are arbitration services for lost or damaged claims, publications, public relations, and annual tariff updates and awards. This site includes articles as well that give some direction, a quarterly data summary, and industry trends.

The American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA) is a non-profit trade association. AMSA represents members of the professional moving industry primarily based in the United States. The association consists of approximately 4,000 members. They consist of van lines, their agents, independent movers, forwarders, and industry suppliers. However, AMSA does not represent the self-storage industry.

Tracing the origins of particular words can be quite different with so many words in the English Dictionary. Some say the word "truck" might have come from a back-formation of "truckle", meaning "small wheel" or "pulley". In turn, both sources emanate from the Greek trokhos (τροχός), meaning "wheel", from trekhein (τρέχειν, "to run").
