I remember using this company and they damaged my furniture and they refused to repair or respond to my emails or the BBB. They even charged me over 600 to move from an apartment in same complex. They also used guys that smelled like alcohol. Very unprofessional.

The guys who came to move we were great. Fun personalities, helpful and kind. That's about all the good I can say about this experience. They were horrible at loading the truck. There was some much wasted space. It was a slow process and should have been completed in a much shorter time period. It took my family of 4, 3 hours to move 2 years ago and it should have taken 2 hours for 3 guys to move out/ in. Everything was packed and ready for them to load. After 5 hours I asked they to stop and leave. I was done paying by they hour. What irritated me the most was i had to rent a U haul to get everything out. . I spoke to the owner and I was refunded part of my charge. He was very nice and listened to my comments and understood my frustration.

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.

I cannot be more unhappy with Bekins, and strongly suggest that if you are looking for reputable and customer focused moving company you look elsewhere. I paid extra to have a 77' OLED TV boxed during my move, as it is a delicate and expensive piece of equipment. It was declared on the high value item sheet. When my items were delivered, I was told by the driver I was signing that all items were delivered. What he did not tell me is that by signing the high value sheet, I was agreeing that the TV box was opened and already checked for damage. Keep in mind he had me sign this as well as him signing it while standing right next to the huge 77' TV box that was clearly unopened. I opened the box first right after they left (generously tipped by the way) and of course, the TV was damaged. I filed a claim less than an hour after the movers had left, and of course, they came back and said the claim was denied because I had signed that paper saying it was not damaged. (super small print, not surprising). The deception on the part of the driver is my concern here. Yes I could have stood there for awhile reading everything, but I took his word. I have no doubt that this was done on purpose, and Bekins refuses to even apologize and acknowledge that the fault was also on the driver for misinforming me regarding what I was signing. I don't expect to ever get a resolution on this, but I am dedicated to letting others know what they are getting into with this company. I have done other cross country moves and had no issues with claims after the movers had left. I truly feel this practice is well planned on their part. Beware.

I would not recommend this company to anyone. They were scheduled to arrive between 8-9. At 830 I got a call that I was being rescheduled for the next day because it was sprinkling and they don't work in the rain. There is rain in the forecast for the next couple of days. I asked what happens if it's raining tomorrow. The answer: I get rescheduled. So I'm sitting here with a packed up house and no movers for today and potentially no movers for the next couple of days. I have to be out of this house as I have sold it and my leaseback ends shortly. They really didn't care. . Fortunately, I was able to find another moving company and am scheduled for pickup tomorrow.

Ryan, thanks for the move from Seabrook to Ft.Worth! Your team moved our three bedroom safely on 12/22, in one day. We had no issues with social distance or your crew not wearing masks. You guys rock! I showed you everything I had to move and my next step was to get the hell out of the way.

I had heard some terrible moving stories from friends and family, so I worked hard to find capable, conscientious movers with integrity. We certainly found the in Scully Statewide. We moved from an hour south to Grand Rapids. The movers were experienced, very hard-working and careful. We had one piece of bedroom furniture that they worked hard to finally fit into the room (narrow hallway and abrupt turn). I had high expectations and they were completely fulfilled.

These guys are topnotch. Professional and hardworking both times I have used them and we had different crews help us with each move. Very friendly and willing to go above and beyond to make sure that everything is carefully moved and positioned like you want it. They worked all day with zero complaints and smiles on their faces on some really hot days. Prices are very reasonable and consistent. I don't know what else to say other than you are doing yourself a disservice if you hire someone else to move your stuff.

"Similar to other reviewers who mention that expensive items went missing during their move, that happened to us as well. I've filled a Police report and will be pressing charges. I'll share with the community the outcome."

Try not to contract this moving Company - on the off chance that you need to be normal. They are only old snare and switch. All work is done on back of poor foreigners; while the drivers and administrators are having a ball numbering cash.. They broke our stuff furthermore numerous things we not conveyed. Totally inept.

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.

A moving company, removalist, or van line are all companies that help people as well as other businesses to move their goods from one place to another. With many inclusive services for relocation like packing, loading, moving, unloading, unpacking and arranging of items can all be taken care of for you. Some services may include cleaning the place and have warehousing facilities.

The intention of a trailer coupler is to secure the trailer to the towing vehicle. It is an important piece, as the trailer couple attaches to the trailer ball. This then forms a ball and socket connection. It allows for relative movement between the towing vehicle and trailer while towing over uneven road surfaces. The trailer ball should be mounted to the rear bumper or to a drawbar, which may be removable. The drawbar secures to the trailer hitch by inserting it into the hitch receiver and pinning it.   The three most common types of couplers used are straight couplers, A-frame couplers, and adjustable couplers. Another option is bumper-pull hitches in which case draw bars can exert a large amount of leverage on the tow vehicle. This makes it harder to recover from a swerving situation (thus it may not be the safest choice depending on your trip).

“ The first original song about truck driving appeared in 1939 when Cliff Bruner and His Boys recorded Ted Daffan's "Truck Driver's Blues," a song explicitly marketed to roadside cafe owners who were installing juke boxes in record numbers to serve truckers and other motorists.” - Shane Hamilton

“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

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'.

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.

"Six Day on the Road" was a trucker hit released in 1963 by country music singer Dave Dudley. Bill Malone is an author as well as a music historian. He notes the song "effectively captured both the boredom and the excitement, as well as the swaggering masculinity that often accompanied long distance trucking."

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 the United States, the Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1986 established minimum requirements that must be met when a state issues a commercial driver's license CDL. It specifies the following types of license: - Class A CDL drivers. Drive vehicles weighing 26,001 pounds or greater, or any combination of vehicles weighing 26,001 pounds or greater when towing a trailer weighing more than 10,000 pounds. Transports quantities of hazardous materials that require warning placards under Department of Public Safety regulations. - Class A Driver License permits. Is a step in preparation for Class A drivers to become a Commercial Driver. - Class B CDL driver. Class B is designed to transport 16 or more passengers (including driver) or more than 8 passengers (including the driver) for compensation. This includes, but is not limited to, tow trucks, tractor trailers, and buses.

In the United States, commercial truck classification is fixed by each vehicle's gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). There are 8 commercial truck classes, ranging between 1 and 8. Trucks are also classified in a more broad way by the DOT's Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The FHWA groups them together, determining classes 1-3 as light duty, 4-6 as medium duty, and 7-8 as heavy duty. The United States Environmental Protection Agency has its own separate system of emission classifications for commercial trucks. Similarly, the United States Census Bureau had assigned classifications of its own in its now-discontinued Vehicle Inventory and Use Survey (TIUS, formerly known as the Truck Inventory and Use Survey).

As of January 1, 2000, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) was established as its own separate administration within the U.S. Department of Transportation. This came about under the "Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999". The FMCSA is based in Washington, D.C., employing more than 1,000 people throughout all 50 States, including in the District of Columbia. Their staff dedicates themselves to the improvement of safety among commercial motor vehicles (CMV) and to saving lives.

Truckload shipping is the movement of large amounts of cargo. In general, they move amounts necessary to fill an entire semi-trailer or inter-modal container. A truckload carrier is a trucking company that generally contracts an entire trailer-load to a single customer. This is quite the opposite of a Less than Truckload (LTL) freight services. Less than Truckload shipping services generally mix freight from several customers in each trailer. An advantage Full Truckload shipping carriers have over Less than Truckload carrier services is that the freight isn't handled during the trip. Yet, in an LTL shipment, goods will generally be transported on several different trailers.

The rise of technological development gave rise to the modern trucking industry. There a few factors supporting this spike in the industry such as the advent of the gas-powered internal combustion engine. Improvement in transmissions is yet another source, just like the move away from chain drives to gear drives. And of course the development of the tractor/semi-trailer combination.   The first state weight limits for trucks were determined and put in place in 1913. Only four states limited truck weights, from a low of 18,000 pounds (8,200 kg) in Maine to a high of 28,000 pounds (13,000 kg) in Massachusetts. The intention of these laws was to protect the earth and gravel-surfaced roads. In this case, particular damages due to the iron and solid rubber wheels of early trucks. By 1914 there were almost 100,000 trucks on America's roads. As a result of solid tires, poor rural roads, and a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour (24km/h) continued to limit the use of these trucks to mostly urban areas.

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.

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.

In today's popular culture, recreational vehicles struggle to find their own niche. Travel trailers or mobile home with limited living facilities, or where people can camp or stay have been referred to as trailers. Previously, many would refer to such vehicles as towable trailers.

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.
