PLEASE save yourself money and frustration. Look for a different moving company. If I could give negative stars I would. They pad the bill by adding boxes and doubling some of your items. But really that is not the worst of it. I swear the truck was in an accident. Multiple times they told us our items were loaded on the truck and on the way. Never showed up. Call back and find...NOPE items unloaded into a warehouse and not on the way. This happened twice. Two months later our things arrive looking like a truck ran over them. Tire marks on cloths. 1/2 of the boxes WET and moldy. I even have an email from them stating that our items were in good condition when picked up from our storage. After a lot of back and forth they just shove you to their claims department that will deny most of your claim and then offer 0.06 cents per pound. Yep 306.20 on over $30,000 in danage and missing items.

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.

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!

We have moved twice in the last two years, the first move we used 2 men and a truck and they were horrible. They moved is 3 days after our scheduled date and were careless with our things, oh and expensive. This last move we used Brockstar and they were amazing. There were prompt, fast and very careful of our belongings and with both the apartment we moved out of and the condo we moved into. They were fantastic and even helped us move a couple of thing around at the new place that would have been difficult or impossible for us to do on our own. Their price was way more reasonable and I highly recommend them. If you have to move, Call Brockstar Moving!

Had 3 people to assist with recent move and 1 seriously couldn't keep up. I'm double their age and had to assist with move to complete in a timely matter given 2 were not in shape to be doing this job. Itemed were dropped during move, which luckily were not breakable. Boxes marked as fragile had heavy boxes stacked on them. Didn't follow Covid-19 guidelines during move as website stated would be followed with none of the movers wearing masks. Had used previously in 2020 without complaints, but have told multiple people to steer clear when they have inquired about movers to use. To top it off, they damaged all my furniture that I paid to put in their storage when paying top dollar to have it protected with reimbursement that won't even buy me a new chair for the table and chairs they damaged. They deny that the items were damaged in their care when this was the first time they were moved since purchased. Horrible customer service, horrible business that will not stand by their services or agreements.

These folks are awesome. From start to finish, they made an awesome showing for us. We had some inconvenience at first finding a mover, however once we associated with Capital City Transfer, they were at our home the following day giving us an appraisal. The move itself went faultlessly. The cost was to a great degree reasonable. We couldn't be more satisfied.

We used Ferguson Transfer in June of 2010 for a crosscountry move. They are associated with North American Van Lines, which is trustworthy, and they were likewise very prescribed by our coast watch companions who utilized them a year or two prior. I think the Coast Guard utilizes them a lot really, as they are found right alongside their trade on Ocean Blvd. Anyway, I orchestrated them to do a walk-through, and it went genuinely well. The proprietor (Jim Cahill) was extremely amiable and fast. I do wish he had gone over things somewhat more precisely, yet we'll get into that very soon.. The lady in their office (Julie) had a touch of a state of mind from the begin, and tho I met with her in individual and via telephone numerous times, I never got the sense she would be an extremely decent individual to manage if things wound up going sideways for reasons unknown. We continued at any rate, in view of suggestions from our dear companions.

We hired Bertsch for our move from Silverton to San Diego in February 2016. Joseph Norris was our sales rep and he was a great help though the bidding and coordination process. When the move started his involvement was done. We had a great team in our Silverton location load our house and it was very typical of how we were treated by Joeseph. It was the actual delivery and follow through that warrants 2 stars. Our delivery was farmed out to about a half dozen 'day laborers' who were very rude and whined every chance they got. The actual truck driver was great (he worked from Bertsch directly). The crew just threw everything in our house, rushing us though the process where we later had to spend days sorting though what went where because they didn't want to follow our instructions. We had a load going to storage and of course that was not labeled properly resulting in items arriving to our home that should have gone to storage. They miscalculated our load so they also had more stuff that did not make it, that had to be delivered 'some time' in the future. They could not tell me when, it took about a month to get the remaining items delivered (about 40+ items). Then there's the cars. We had them move our two cars. They put one in the big rig, however we were promised both cars would be shipped with our household items (the only reason why I paid DOUBLE the amount it would take for me to hire a care transport company to deliver them). One of our cars got left behind with the other 40+ items. They had no idea as to when we would get our vehicle. They then proceeded to loose the car. They farmed it out to a third party car transport company (probably someone similar to who I'd hire on the open market for half what they were charging me). About 6 weeks later and 3 dozen emails we finally received our car. I contacted our rep, Joseph Norris for a credit back for the car. I demanded a full refund of the car transport for the whole ordeal (about $1,000 out of the entire $11,000 move), he refused. He stated it was up to us to ask the car moving company for a credit. I told him I hired their team for the move, not this third party they farmed it out to. He continued to ignore my calls or emails. He did eventually send us a refund of $150 for our 'trouble'. I considered pursuing the issue further, however opted to move on and not waste time pursuing it other than to warn other potential customers of how this team operates. Honestly, if they had just taken a little bit of responsibility for the disaster that was my move then their review would be much better. The main issue I have is that they washed their hands of this when it was 100% their responsibility to make right.

As 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 also be used in a personal manner as well, whether for personal or small business purposes.

In 1895 Karl Benz designed and built the first truck in history by using the internal combustion engine. Later that year some of Benz's trucks gave into modernization and went on to become the first bus by the Netphener. This would be the first motor bus company in history. Hardly a year later, in 1986, another internal combustion engine truck was built by a man named Gottlieb Daimler. As people began to catch on, other companies, such as Peugeot, Renault, and Bussing, also built their own versions. In 1899, the first truck in the United States was built by Autocar and was available with two optional horsepower motors, 5 or 8.

In the United States, the term 'full trailer' is used for a freight trailer supported by front and rear axles and pulled by a drawbar. This term is slightly different in Europe, where a full trailer is known as an A-frame drawbar trail. A full trailer is 96 or 102 in (2.4 or 2.6 m) wide and 35 or 40 ft (11 or 12 m) long.

In many countries, driving a truck requires a special driving license. The requirements and limitations vary with each different jurisdiction.

Beginning the the early 20th century, the 1920's saw several major advancements. There was improvement in rural roads which was significant for the time. The diesel engine, which are 25-40% more efficient than gas engines were also a major breakthrough. We also saw the standardization of truck and trailer sizes along with fifth wheel coupling systems. Additionally power assisted brakes and steering developed. By 1933, all states had some form of varying truck weight regulation.

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.

Trucks of the era mostly used two-cylinder engines and had a carrying capacity of 1,500 to 2,000 kilograms (3,300 to 4,400 lb). In 1904, 700 heavy trucks were built in the United States, 1000 in 1907, 6000 in 1910, and 25000 in 1914. A Benz truck modified by Netphener company (1895)

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.

Without strong land use controls, buildings are too often built in town right along a bypass. This results with the conversion of it into an ordinary town road, resulting in the bypass becoming as congested as the local streets. On the contrary, a bypass is intended to avoid such local street congestion. Gas stations, shopping centers, along with various other businesses are often built alongside them. They are built in hopes of easing accessibility, while home are ideally avoided for noise reasons.

The term "lorry" has an ambiguous origin, but it is likely that its roots were in the rail transport industry. This is where the word is known to have been used in 1838 to refer to a type of truck (a freight car as in British usage) specifically a large flat wagon. It may derive from the verb lurry, which means to pull or tug, of uncertain origin. It's expanded meaning was much more exciting as "self-propelled vehicle for carrying goods", and has been in usage since 1911. Previously, unbeknownst to most, the word "lorry" was used for a fashion of big horse-drawn goods wagon.

Implemented in 2014, the National Registry, requires all Medical Examiners (ME) who conduct physical examinations and issue medical certifications for interstate CMV drivers to complete training on FMCSA’s physical qualification standards, must pass a certification test. This is to demonstrate competence through periodic training and testing. CMV drivers whose medical certifications expire must use MEs on the National Registry for their examinations. FMCSA has reached its goal of at least 40,000 certified MEs signing onto the registry. All this means is that drivers or movers can now find certified medical examiners throughout the country who can perform their medical exam. FMCSA is preparing to issue a follow-on “National Registry 2” rule stating new requirements. In this case, MEs are to submit medical certificate information on a daily basis. These daily updates are sent to the FMCSA, which will then be sent to the states electronically. This process will dramatically decrease the chance of drivers falsifying medical cards.

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.

The year of 1977 marked the release of the infamous Smokey and the Bandit. It went on to be the third highest grossing film that year, following tough competitors like Star Wars and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Burt Reynolds plays the protagonist, or "The Bandit", who escorts "The Snowman" in order to deliver bootleg beer. Reynolds once stated he envisioned trucking as a "hedonistic joyride entirely devoid from economic reality"   Another action film in 1977 also focused on truck drivers, as was the trend it seems. Breaker! Breaker! starring infamous Chuck Norris also focused on truck drivers. They were also displaying movie posters with the catch phrase "... he's got a CB radio and a hundred friends who just might get mad!"

By the time 2006 came, there were over 26 million trucks on the United States roads, each hauling over 10 billion short tons of freight (9.1 billion long tons). This was representing almost 70% of the total volume of freight. When, as a driver or an automobile drivers, most automobile drivers are largely unfamiliar with large trucks. As as a result of these unaware truck drivers and their massive 18-wheeler's numerous blind spots. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has determined that 70% of fatal automobile/tractor trailer accident happen for a reason. That being the result of "unsafe actions of automobile drivers". People, as well as drivers, need to realize the dangers of such large trucks and pay more attention. Likewise for truck drivers as well.

The Federal-Aid Highway Amendments of 1974 established a federal maximum gross vehicle weight of 80,000 pounds (36,000 kg). It also introduced a sliding scale of truck weight-to-length ratios based on the bridge formula. Although, they did not establish a federal minimum weight limit. By failing to establish a federal regulation, six contiguous in the Mississippi Valley rebelled. Becoming known as the "barrier state", they refused to increase their Interstate weight limits to 80,000 pounds. Due to this, the trucking industry faced a barrier to efficient cross-country interstate commerce.

Moving companies that operate within the borders of a particular state are usually regulated by the state DOT. Sometimes the public utility commission in that state will take care of it. This only applies to some of the U.S. states such as in California (California Public Utilities Commission) or Texas (Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. However, no matter what state you are in it is always best to make sure you are compliant with that state

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").

In today's society, there are rules and regulations everywhere you go, the same goes for commercial vehicles. The federal government has strict regulations that must be met, such as how many hours a driver may be on the clock. For example, 11 hours driving /14 hours on-duty followed by 10 hours off, with a max of 70 hours/8 days or 60 hours/7 days. They can also set rules deciding how much rest and sleep time is required, however, these are only a couple of regulations set. Any violations are often subject to harsh penalties. In some cases, there are instruments to track each driver's hours, which are becoming more necessary.

In the United States and Canada, the cost for long-distance moves is generally determined by a few factors. The first is the weight of the items to be moved and the distance it will go. Cost is also based on how quickly the items are to be moved, as well as the time of the year or month which the move occurs. In the United Kingdom and Australia, it's quite different. They base price on the volume of the items as opposed to their weight. Keep in mind some movers may offer flat rate pricing.
