Hired them for a move from Kure Beach to Florida with them storing our furniture until we found a house to buy. Estimate was $5400 to their storage then $650.00 per month to climate control storage and $5700 to repack truck and deliver when we found a new home. Estimator made a "Mistake" and initial move to storage was$2200.00 higher than estimate which meant storage was $1050.00 instead of lower estimated amount of $650.00 and delivery to Florida was $7400.00 instead of quoted $5700.00 Employees were top shelf but a Mistake in estimating weight of our things cost us $5000.00 more than estimate. Owner returned phone call after five attempts contacting him. Salesman Brooks told me he couldn't sleep when he found out how badly he screwed up our estimate. Ultimately owner took 10% off the bill for extra weight his sales rep had screwed up. What can you do when they low ball price then tell you its just an estimate not binding but now they have all of your things and their held ransom. So sick and tired of moving company scams. No regulation or anyplace to take your issues to for resolution. I really thought trying to hire locally would be a good thing and reviews were all five stars Humm!!!! Wonder if their all honest reviews or their stacking the deck having friends play customers for reviews. There's no five star review from me.

Sadly tons of my furniture was scratched, smashed, and broken. It was a very sad and frustrating experience overall. However I felt the staff was extremely friendly and outgoing. They also reimbursed the majority of damage. I fell for the small estimate I originally received before the move.

We found Sean and his team - Kevin, Dan and Chris - as a result of amazing positive posts on our local NextDoor site. We were moving into a brand new home just across town. The guys were courteous, capable and even made suggestions since Paul was having knee surgery in a week ! A previous neighbor used Dry Ridge 3 times and raved about them. Strongly recommend

If I could leave more than 5 stars, I would! The Gasperson Moving team made my relocation simple and care free. From beginning to end: estimate, office coorespondences, movers, and management; all aspects of my relocation were completed with zero complications. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job!

Would not recommend. This company had 2 guys come out to move my elderly mother and they charged her $600.00 to move 2 beds, table, 2 couches , washer, dryer and china hutch that they ended up breaking the glass inside it so she can not use it at the moment. They had to travel 12 miles to her new home. She had requested that I not do a review as she is scared they will come after her. This is so sad. First and only time we will use this company.

The process of finding a good mover can seem daunting. But doing a little research is worth it. 1. Get recommendations from neighbors 2. Do an initial screening and ask questions 3. You should end up with at least two or three licensed companies to call for a free in-home estimate 4. When an estimator comes to your home, show him everything 5. Be wary of any company that comes in much lower than the others 6. Now check out the contenders in more detail; confirm licensed and insured

With all the reviews I am the only one who have bad experience. They broke some of my things and left me hanging on the phone. I will just use other company when my next move.

These guys were great. Packed it all up and unloaded after the move without me lifting a finger. The guys were personable and enthusiastic. I dreaded this whole process and couldn't be more please.

I called this wonderful company on Tuesday for help moving our things from a 26 ft UHaul on Thursday. Sheri asked if 4:00 would be ok and I asked if they could do it at 1:00. She advised they were booked up, however would check on this time. She called back later and said they could do it. Two guys arrived about 45 minutes early and worked hard. Not only did they have to unload the big truck but had to load it up onto a 16ft truck . They were great to work with, very professional and courteous . No walls were touched with the furniture and placed where we wanted. We would hire them again and you should hire them also. Thank you

Did miss a couple of items left behind in a closet. Could have done a better job of covering floors - especially between elevator and apartment (which was required). Fair to OK in flooring coverage in apartment but could have been better coverage in carpeted rooms.

I purchased a used air hockey table from a family in the Asheville area and I needed to get the table to Greensboro. I spoke with Doug Carpenter several times. He went to look at the house to see what sort of truck would be needed as well as to see if there would be any obstacles impacting his ability to get the table out of the house. He didn't want to simply quote me a price without understanding the situation. I don't hold the moving company industry in high regard but I was super impressed with Doug and Appalachian Movers. Doug was very clear in how the process would work and he delivered as promised.

I believe I submitted a review before. I loved everything about my move. The efficiency, kindness, professionalism, and incredible care and hard work. All was brilliant and extremely satisfactory from beginning to end. Also loved the sense of humor by all hard working gentlemen. Thank you for making a stressful moment fun

Moving With Children: How to Keep Your Head Through the Hassle

  • It can be difficult to make kids get rid of toys, even if they never play with them anymore. If there are certain items you know your kids will never touch again, stash them away a few weeks before packing and if your kids don’t wonder where they are, it’s a safe bet that you can donate them to charity.
  • Be sure to outline every task that needs to be done. This way, you can easily identify all chores and moving doesn’t seem quite as stressful.
  • Give your kids some duties that can help with the moving effort so that they can feel included and you can get some extra stuff done.
  • Be flexible. As with almost everything in life when you have children, moving to SC is an experience that can have many surprises pop up.



How To Eat Your Way Through South Carolina Like A True Southerner

  • Shrimp & grits are a local delicacy that you’re hard-pressed to find anywhere outside the American Southeast. Though many Southern states make the dish, it’s best in South Carolina.
  • Oysters are eaten by the dozen and natives never get tired of them.
  • You can eat red crab any old day; South Carolinians know that the best crabmeat under the sun is pulled from blue crabs.
  • The barbecue in South Carolina is more than just grilled meat; it’s a way of life. South Carolinians take their barbecue seriously, and never even dream of having it without first bathing it in a homemade hot sauce.



5 Quick Reasons That Charleston Will Be Your New Favorite City

  • Southern Hospitality is alive and well, and you’ll never feel like a stranger to anyone.
  • Days are spent lounging on the porch in wicker rocking chairs, enjoying the sunshine, year-round.
  • The way the sunsets dance along the waterfront will steal your heart.
  • Tea is served sweet and the best crabmeat is blue.

4 Red Flags of a Super Low Price You Shouldn't Overlook

  • You should never pay less than $70 per hour for professional movers. One reason for a deep discount below the industry standard is that companies might skimp on Worker's Compensation Insurance, which means that if a mover is injured on your property, YOU have to foot the bill.
  • If the SC movers lack valid federal licensing, they might try to entice customers with outrageously low rates.
  • When you're paying a ridiculously discounted price, you're probably not getting well-trained and qualified movers, but day laborers who will work for low wages.
  • Moving scams are unfortunately prevalent. If the price seems too low and you are trying to find "the catch," trust your instinct. Rogue movers are always trying to find new ways to rip-off customers.

Do you know quotes

Words have always had a different meaning or have been used interchangeably with others across all cultures. In the United States, Canada, and the Philippines the word "truck" is mostly reserved for larger vehicles. Although in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa, the word "truck" is generally reserved for large vehicles. In Australia and New Zealand, a pickup truck is usually called a ute, short for "utility". While over in South Africa it is called a bakkie (Afrikaans: "small open container"). The United Kingdom, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Ireland, and Hong Kong use the "lorry" instead of truck, but only for medium and heavy types.

In American English, the word "truck" has historically been preceded by a word describing the type of vehicle, such as a "tanker truck". In British English, preference would lie with "tanker" or "petrol tanker".

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

In 1999, The Simpsons episode Maximum Homerdrive aired. It featured Homer and Bart making a delivery for a truck driver named Red after he unexpectedly dies of 'food poisoning'.

Very light trucks. Popular in Europe and Asia, many mini-trucks are factory redesigns of light automobiles, usually with monocoque bodies. Specialized designs with substantial frames such as the Italian Piaggio shown here are based upon Japanese designs (in this case by Daihatsu) and are popular for use in "old town" sections of European cities that often have very narrow alleyways. Regardless of the name, these small trucks serve a wide range of uses. In Japan, they are regulated under the Kei car laws, which allow vehicle owners a break on taxes for buying a smaller and less-powerful vehicle (currently, the engine is limited to 660 ccs {0.66L} displacement). These vehicles are used as on-road utility vehicles in Japan. These Japanese-made mini trucks that were manufactured for on-road use are competing with off-road ATVs in the United States, and import regulations require that these mini trucks have a 25 mph (40 km/h) speed governor as they are classified as low-speed vehicles. These vehicles have found uses in construction, large campuses (government, university, and industrial), agriculture, cattle ranches, amusement parks, and replacements for golf carts.Major mini truck manufacturers and their brands: Daihatsu Hijet, Honda Acty, Mazda Scrum, Mitsubishi Minicab, Subaru Sambar, Suzuki Carry   As with many things in Europe and Asia, the illusion of delicacy and proper manners always seems to attract tourists.

Currently, the engine is limited to 660 cc [0.66L] displacement. These vehicles began being used as on-road utility vehicles in Japan. Classified as a low speed vehicle, these Japanese-made mini trucks were manufactured for on-road use for competing the the off-road ATVs in the United States. Import regulations require that the mini trucks have a 25 mph (40km/h) speed governor. Again, this is because they are low speed vehicles.   However, these vehicles have found numerous amounts of ways to help the community. They invest money into the government, universities, amusement parks, and replacements for golf cars. They have some major Japanese mini truck manufacturarers as well as brands such as: Daihatsu Hijet, Honda Acty, Mazda Scrum, Mitsubishit Minicab, Subaru Sambar, and Suzuki Carry.

As most people have experienced, moving does involve having the appropriate materials. Some materials you might find at home or may be more resourceful to save money while others may choose to pay for everything. Either way materials such as boxes, paper, tape, and bubble wrap with which to pack box-able and/or protect fragile household goods. It is also used to consolidate the carrying and stacking on moving day. Self-service moving companies offer another viable option. It involves the person moving buying a space on one or more trailers or shipping containers. These containers are then professionally driven to the new location.

During the latter part of the 20th century, we saw a decline of the trucking culture. Coinciding with this decline was a decline of the image of truck drivers, as they became negatively stigmatized. As a result of such negativity, it makes sense that truck drivers were frequently portrayed as the "bad guy(s)" in movies.

A moving scam is a scam by a moving company in which the company provides an estimate, loads the goods, then states a much higher price to deliver the goods, effectively holding the goods as lien but does this without do a change of order or revised estimate.

The 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 are in 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.

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.

Signage of business routes varies, depending on the type of route they are derived from. Business routes paralleling U.S. and state highways usually have exactly the same shield shapes and nearly the same overall appearance as the routes they parallel, with a rectangular plate reading "BUSINESS" placed above the shield (either supplementing or replacing the directional plate, depending on the preference of the road agency). In order to better identify and differentiate alternate routes from the routes they parallel, some states such as Maryland are beginning to use green shields for business routes off U.S. highways. In addition, Maryland uses a green shield for business routes off state highways with the word "BUSINESS" in place of "MARYLAND" is used for a state route.

In 1938, the now-eliminated Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) enforced the first Hours of Service (HOS) rules. Drivers became limited to 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period. At this time, work included loading, unloading, driving, handling freight, preparing reports, preparing vehicles for service, or performing any other duty in relation to the transportation of passengers or property.   The ICC intended for the 3-hour difference between 12 hours of work and 15 hours on-duty to be used for meals and rest breaks. This meant that the weekly max was limited to 60 hours over 7 days (non-daily drivers), or 70 hours over 8 days (daily drivers). With these rules in place, it allowed 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period, 9 hours of rest, with 3 hours for breaks within a 24-hour day.

Advocation for better transportation began historically in the late 1870s of the United States. This is when the Good Roads Movement first occurred, lasting all the way throughout the 1920s. Bicyclist leaders advocated for improved roads. Their acts led to the turning of local agitation into the national political movement it became.

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.

The most basic purpose of a trailer jack is to lift the trailer to a height that allows the trailer to hitch or unhitch to and from the towing vehicle. Trailer jacks may also be used for 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. Other trailers, such as horse trailers, have a built-in jack at the tongue for this purpose.

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.

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. Just to 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.

With the ending of World War I, several developments were made to enhance trucks. Such an example would be by putting pneumatic tires replaced the previously common full rubber versions. These advancements continued, including electric starters, power brakes, 4, 6, and 8 cylinder engines. Closed cabs and electric lighting followed. The modern semi-trailer truck also debuted. Additionally, touring car builders such as Ford and Renault entered the heavy truck market.
