I hired the services of Us Van Line after searching online and reading some reviews. We called the customer service and asked for a quote given the specifics of the house size, number of boxes and furniture. We settled to a very affordable price and scheduled the move. The moving team was very courteous and polite and removed their shoes in both properties to protect the floor when requested. Everything was accounted for and it was delivered in perfect condition. I would certainly use their services again and recommend them to my friends and family.

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY If i could give ZERO stars i would. This company is shady. My husband who served in the US Army for 20 years and served 3 Iraq tours was treated like trash. Im located in houston and will follow him shortly to PA. My husband just retired from the military taking a job in PA from killeen tx. When the truck came to the house it wasnt big enough to hold all his stuff(mind you its just a 3bedroom house with only his stuff. Not alot of stuff) they had him sign a contract before hand then once his stuff didnt fit they made another contract saying its going to cost him $2500 than what was originally told. He was on a time schedule with starting his new job and just paid. Because the truck was too small he had to leave several large items behind. So why did they charge more when he couldnt take his stuff? The delivery was just as bad. They didnt show when they said they would, then the 18 wheeler couldnt fit down his road. So now he had to rent a uhaul. The driver bought his 18yr old son qith him who was all of 80lbs soaking wet. So my husband had to help these guys move his stuff from an 18wheeler to a uhaul truck and help move his own stuff. The trucker said to be honest im not even suppose to help you unload this to your uhaul? Over $4000 paying them then renting his own uhaul and moving his stuff?? Makes me sick to my stomach. I guarantee they havent heard the last from us! DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY

These guys are extremely professional, well-organized and friendly. On our moving day, they arrived 10 minutes earlier and started packing everything right away. They promised to be very careful with the stuff that I said was very fragile and delivered everything without dropping and breaking anything.

All I truly needed to move was my studio loft from Atlanta to Gilbert AZ.. Doing a reversal home. I just had a room set and a few boxes and Presto was sensibly estimated, I saw some different costs that were close yet the organizations didnt appear to be excessively solid.

I have had the opportunity to work with several moving companies, these guys are by far the best team! They were professional, helpful and very positive despite a difficult move. The entire team worked with our staff on the move and never had a grunt or a grumble about any difficult aspect of the move. I would not hesitate to recommend Condor Moving Systems -- you will not go wrong with this professional and excellent company! Thank you so very much Condor -- you really are the best!

The delivery men John, Narry, and Jarvis were absolutely amazing at bringing in our household effects as well as putting together the items that needed assembling. They even asked if there were other things that they needed to help us set up or assemble. I hope if bonuses are given, that these men get one because they were great and very professional at their job.

Please do not use this moving service. They were 5 hours late for pickup. They should have around between 6-9am in the morning but arrived past 1 am instead. We had to drive across country the same day with three kids and a dog so time was of essence to us. Once the movers arrived, the boss supposedly calculates all of your boxes, furniture, etc. We had more boxes than expected so we knew our move would cost a tad bit more than the quote. However, the mover calculated our move to cost double the original quote. I couldn't figure out how it was possible until I realized, all too late, that they overcharged us for the cubic feet. The mover charged 4.5 cubic feet for all of our boxes rather than charging for their actual cubic feet! Some boxes were x-small, small and medium. So, the cubic feet should have corresponded. At pickup, the mover gave me an ultimatum: either pay double the original quote or pay him $300 cash under the table and he will give me a base (label) rate for the move. Of course, we were stressed out with the kids and the movers were so late. We really needed to get on the road and the mover took advantage of that. We withdrew $300 cash and gave it to him so that he would charge us a base rate. The mover acted like he was giving us a special deal and his intent was to take advantage of us. Our delivery took longer than 21 days to arrive. Upon delivery, our TV stand was broken and Versace china set had a few plates broken. Our other furniture was scratched up a bit. You have to fill out a claim form that is very lengthy and time consuming, difficult process if any of your items are broken or damaged. I emailed and called the moving company several times concerning the ultimatum that was given to us. One representative, named Carmen, told me in e-mail that if I send her back some sort of proof that her company would cut us a check for the loss. The only proof I had was the withdrawal receipt corresponding to day and time of move. This proof wasn't enough for Fine Line Relocation. This morning, I left a voicemail because its hard to get someone on the phone first try. I did receive a call back. The rep. verbatim said, " Who in their right mind would pay cash under the table and not call our office instead to report the incident?" She then continued to insult my intelligence in a similar matter in a loud tone and voice. I hung up. Please, save yourself the trouble and deal with another company. The original estimate might sound good but once the drivers arrive to pick up your move, you have to be really experienced in moves and know what you are doing in order to not be taken advantage of.

The Price Tag of International Moving: What You Can Expect When You Move Abroad

  • The most common type of international move involves for the customer to pack his or her own belongings and have an international moving company handle their processing overseas.
  • This is called a “door to door move,” and is fairly routine in this day and age with technology on the rise, and our world being more connected than ever.
  • It goes without saying, but a move overseas is bound to cost much more than a simple domestic long distance move.
  • This is due to the extra distance involved, as well as extra amenities like translation services, visa paperwork, and customs authorizations.
  • In addition to bracing yourself for the total cost of the move, it’s important to factor in that your household goods shipment might take a few days or some weeks to arrive to your new place. Budget the cost of food and temporary lodging when all your stuff is in transit.
  • Most importantly, have fun! Traveling is an experience coveted by all but enjoyed by few, so make sure to make the most of your international move and the time you spend waiting for your possessions to arrive.

 

The Art of Eating (And Drinking) Like a Texan

  • Tex-Mex food is more than just Americanized Mexican cuisine, it’s a way of life for Texans.
  • The most effective way to beat the brutal Texas heat is to grab a frosty margarita. If you don’t drink, no problem! Non-alcoholic options are always on the table.
  • Barbecue is more than just a way to cook meat, it’s a way to bring people together. Cookouts, outdoor parties, and family get-togethers all center around this down-home, Southern meal.
  • The people in Texas may be sweet, but their tea is even sweeter. In the Deep South, tea is served on ice and with more sugar than some desserts.



Little-Known Details About Life in Texas

  • Tech-xas: Since the flood of innovation of the digital age, Texas has had a jump in tech companies opening offices, and even headquarters, in cities like Houston, Austin, and Dallas.
  • Taxes/Texas: The words may look similar, but they are indeed very different; residents of Texas do not pay personal state income tax.
  • Innovation: Some of the most unexpected yet commonplace parts of our daily lives originated in Texas, such as the ATM and elevator music.
  • Everything's Bigger in Texas: It’s quicker to drive from El Paso, TX to California than it takes to drive from El Paso, TX to Dallas, TX.

Heavy Lifting: The Art of Moving Large Furniture

  • Make it a group effort. When you lift something heavy and bulky by yourself, you are putting yourself in the way of tremendous harm. Be safe and get a group of people (preferably movers Texas) to help evenly distribute the weight of the object.
  • If you can take it apart, do it. Some large furniture items like dressers, wardrobes, desks, and tables can be disassembled for easier transport.
  • Get the right equipment. When you use the proper tools to move, such as dollies and lifts, your heavy item can be transported safely and properly. Most moving companies Texas will have these items for rent.
  • Leave it to the pros. It’s usually best for the safety of the item (and everyone involved) that movers in Texas with specialized training lift and transport it.
  • Heavy items that need extra care: Pianos, hot tubs, refrigerators, pool tables, beds, and sofas need to be treated with extra care in order to move them successfully.

The Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways is most commonly known as the Interstate Highway System, Interstate Freeway System, Interstate System, or simply the Interstate. It is a network of controlled-access highways that forms a part of the National Highway System of the United States. Named after President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who endorsed its formation, the idea was to have portable moving and storage. Construction was authorized by the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956. The original portion was completed 35 years later, although some urban routes were canceled and never built. The network has since been extended and, as of 2013, it had a total length of 47,856 miles (77,017 km), making it the world's second longest after China's. As of 2013, about one-quarter of all vehicle miles driven in the country use the Interstate system. In 2006, the cost of construction had been estimated at about $425 billion (equivalent to $511 billion in 2015).

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.

A 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. 

The decade of the 70s saw the heyday of truck driving, and the dramatic rise in the popularity of "trucker culture". Truck drivers were romanticized as modern-day cowboys and outlaws (and this stereotype persists even today). This was due in part to their use of citizens' band (CB) radio to relay information to each other regarding the locations of police officers and transportation authorities. Plaid shirts, trucker hats, CB radios, and using CB slang were popular not just with drivers but among the general public.

With the partial deregulation of the trucking industry in 1980 by the Motor Carrier Act, trucking companies increased. The workforce was drastically de-unionized. As a result, drivers received a lower pay overall. Losing its spotlight in the popular culture, trucking had become less intimate as some unspoken competition broke out. However, the deregulation only increased the competition and productivity with the trucking industry as a whole. This was beneficial to the America consumer by reducing costs. In 1982 the Surface Transportation Assistance Act established a federal minimum truck weight limits. Thus, trucks were finally standardized truck size and weight limits across the country. This was also put in to place so that across country traffic on the Interstate Highways resolved the issue of the 'barrier states'.

“The association of truckers with cowboys and related myths was perhaps most obvious during the urban-cowboy craze of the late 1970s, a period that saw middle-class urbanites wearing cowboy clothing and patronizing simulated cowboy nightclubs. During this time, at least four truck driver movies appeared, CB radio became popular, and truck drivers were prominently featured in all forms of popular media.” — Lawrence J. Ouellet

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)

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

“Writer-director James Mottern said he was influenced by nuanced, beloved movies of the 1970s such as "The Last Detail" and "Five Easy Pieces." Mottern said his female trucker character began with a woman he saw at a Southern California truck stop — a "beautiful woman, bleach blonde ... skin tanned to leather walked like a Teamster, blue eyes.” - Paul Brownfield

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) is an influential association as an advocate for transportation. Setting important standards, they are responsible for publishing specifications, test protocols, and guidelines. All which are used in highway design and construction throughout the United States. Despite its name, the association represents more than solely highways. Alongside highways, they focus on air, rail, water, and public transportation as well.

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.

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.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issues Hours of Service regulations. At the same time, they govern the working hours of anyone operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in the United States. Such regulations apply to truck drivers, commercial and city bus drivers, and school bus drivers who operate CMVs. With these rules in place, the number of daily and weekly hours spent driving and working is limited. The FMCSA regulates the minimum amount of time drivers must spend resting between driving shifts. In regards to intrastate commerce, the respective state's regulations apply.

The concept of a bypass is a simple one. It is a road or highway that purposely avoids or "bypasses" a built-up area, town, or village. Bypasses were created with the intent to let through traffic flow without having to get stuck in local traffic. In general they are supposed to reduce congestion in a built-up area. By doing so, road safety will greatly improve.   A bypass designated for trucks traveling a long distance, either commercial or otherwise, is called a truck 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.

Ultra light trucks are very easy to spot or acknowledge if you are paying attention. They are often produced variously such as golf cars, for instance, it has internal combustion or a battery electric drive. They usually for off-highway use on estates, golf courses, parks, in stores, or even someone in an electric wheelchair. While clearly not suitable for highway usage, some variations may be licensed as slow speed vehicles. The catch is that they may on operate on streets, usually a body variation of a neighborhood electric vehicle. A few manufacturers produce specialized chassis for this type of vehicle. Meanwhile, Zap Motors markets a version of the xebra electric tricycle. Which, believe it or not, is able to attain a general license in the United States as a motorcycle.

Driver's licensing has coincided throughout the European Union in order to for the complex rules to all member states. Driving a vehicle weighing more than 7.5 tons (16,535 lb) for commercial purposes requires a certain license. This specialist licence type varies depending on the use of the vehicle and number of seat. Licences first acquired after 1997, the weight was reduced to 3,500 kilograms (7,716 lb), not including trailers.

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").

There many reasons for moving, each one with a unique and specific reason as to why. Relocation services, employee relocation, or workforce mobility can create a range of processes. This process of transferring employees, their families, and/or entire departments of a business to a new location can be difficult. Like some types of employee benefits, these matters are dealt with by human resources specialists within a corporation.

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.
