USE ANYONE ELSE!!! I am going to share the letter I sent to the vice president and sales manager of Southwest Virginia Moving and Storage. They broke things, they attempted to overcharge me by 35%, they equipment in disrepair, but worst of all, an entire box was missing (all I know is it contained all my towels - and I believe fragile articles which are gone...but they also STOLE MY LAPTOP. It wasn't expensive and was 3 years old - but they STOLE MY LAPTOP. As you will read - I basically gave them a pass if they just would come fix the piece of equipment they damaged. They chose not to respond - so you get the whole story here. "I just thought I would let you know, now that I am nearly fully unpacked how much I loathe the experience I had with your company. First, of course is that your company worked through the rainiest day in August - a set of conditions, particularly with my steps, you had to know would result in a longer workday than you anticipated. Rather than reschedule so that the charges would be in line with the estimate, your company chose to just work through the rain, and charge me 35% more than the job should have required. The workers broke an irreplaceable vase/sculpture, which I largely ignored. BUT ...after they left, it got much worse. I realized they dismantled my Powerplate to move it, but did not reassemble it. This is a multiple person job as it is very heavy, (IT DID NOT REQUIRE DISMANTLING)...only a dolly which is how it got into the house I was in. They LEFT IT DISMANTLED. This is a $9000 piece of equipment that I cannot use until it is reassembled - so when the delivery guys from Lowes came with my washer and dryer, they attempted to reassemble, but two of the three bolts that hold it together were immediately identified as damaged - cross threaded. Probably why your people left without reassembling. I waited until now to contact you because I wanted to have unpacked ALL my boxes. Why? Because my laptop is missing. Ne. stolen. Not an expensive laptop but it is gone. As is the box it was in with all my bath towels. I don't remember what else was in the box. The towels were old and of little value. The laptop was only about $350 new. But the problem is all is missing. It was less than a mile's drive between homes. Stuff doesn't fall off the truck. But it is the Powerplate situation that REALLY has me upset. There was NO REASON to dismantle it. But once dismantled, it ABSOLUTELY SHOULD HAVE BEEN RESTORED TO OPERATING CONDITION!!! I would have contacted you sooner, but I wanted to make sure my assertion that the laptop and box with towels and who knows what else were in fact GONE. Judging by the way the company handled the rain/billing situation, I don't expect satisfaction - but if you get your people to my house (NOT the ones who stole from me) to reassemble and make right the Powerplate, I won't share the meat of this email with every review site I can find. If you don't want to

Due to Covid, I was kinda skeptical on reserving movers. But I really needed help moving items. Not only did the movers wear masks but they practiced social distancing. In the end, they got everything out and did great job

FLYT Moving provided excellent service in packing many of my valuable collection items; loading, moving, and unloading the contents of my 4 bedroom home. The team arrived on time and performed all of the work on a timely manner. Their price was very competitive. They provided a binding quote unlike other experiences we had with movers, we actually received a reduction in final price because they finished sooner than estimated. I would strongly recommend and use them again if we ever move again.

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!!!!!!! 1ST MOVE, 3 PACKERS LEFT BEFORE STARTING FELT THAT THEY WERE NOT GOING TO MAKE ENOUGH MONEY. WORKERS GET PAID BY THE POUND. MOVE WAS SUPPOSED TO START AT 9:00 am . FINALLY 3 WORKERS SHOWED UP AT 12:30. 2 MORE WORKERS SHOWED UP AT 5:30. WE LEFT HOUSE AT 10:30 AT NIGHT. 2ND MOVE TO NEW HOUSE. I WAS TOLD BY MIKE AT HARRISON'S THAT THE MOVE WOULD START BETWEEN 9:00 AND 11:00 am. 3 WORKERS SHOWED UP TO ADDRESS, BUT THE WORKERS WERE TOLD THAT THE WEIGHT OF THE MOVE WAS 7000 LBS. WHICH IT REALLY IS 15000 LBS. THEY CALLED THE SUPERVISOR FOR THE DRIVER OF TRUCK WHICH TOLD THEM "THEY WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE AT THAT ADDRESS". IT TOOK THE WORKERS 2 HOURS TO DRIVE FOR THIS JOB. MY QUESTION IS HOW DID THE WORKERS GET THE ADDRESS IF THEY WERE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THERE? DRIVER TOLD MY WIFE THAT THE ANOTHER SET OF 4 WORKERS ARE ON THERE WAY WHICH IS AGAIN OVER 2 HOURS AWAY. IT IS NOW 2:00 pm AND STILL NO WORKERS, SO DRIVER GOT TIRE OF WAITING AND STARTED THE UNLOAD. WIFE IS GIVING HIM A HAND. NO WEEKEND EMERGENCY NUMBER FOR HARRISON'S OR MIKE THE SUPERVISOR FOR THE MOVE THAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS FIASCO . MIKE WON'T RETURN MY CALL OR ANSWER HIS PHONE. I HAVE NEVER BEEN TREATED BY A COMPANY IN MY LIFE LIKE THIS. IT IS TOO BAD I CAN'T GIVE A NEGATIVE STAR RATING. I HAD TO POST 1 STAR OR I COULD NOT SEND THIS POST. I THOUGHT I WAS USING A REPUTABLE COMPANY. AGAIN DO NOT USE THEM!!!!! GREG

I recently had to pack up and move from San Francisco to Denver for a new job opportunity. I looked for a moving company on Yelp and found Air1moving. From the first call I had a great experience with these guys. They were fair in their pricing, respectful, and punctual. They made the experience pleasant and easy. I recommend hiring them.

Their drivers seem to thi k it is funny to sit and joke around at the gas pump while other companies are waiting to fill uo. As the driver was laughing while pulling away. If they are that rude and unprofessional just filing up on gas i would hate yo see what they do woth their clients items.

5 STARS !! J Barber came to me highly recommended, and my own experience strongly supports this !! From my first contact with Kate, my customer liaison manager, planning and carrying out my move has been easy and pleasant. The moving crews at both pickup and delivery arrived on time, worked with energy and purpose, and took great care for the safekeeping of my goods and property. When my Closing and Delivery were delayed through no fault of mine, the Company was most reasonable in accommodating my need for reschedule. Team leaders Carrie and Woody, and individual Crew members, were all most cooperative and helpful throughout the process. J Barber Moving and Storage has my very highest recommendation !!

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.

Little Guys is a completely astounding moving company! They went well beyond, ensuring everything was precisely right, even to the point of repairing furniture that was not assemble accurately in any case! Not just did I get an extraordinary value, I got phenomenal, cordial, and expert administration. I would prescribe them to anybody.

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!

4 Terrible Reasons Your Moving Quote is So Low

  • If you're quoted less than $70 per hour by movers Virginia, there's a good chance that this company doesn't insure its workers with Workman's Compensation Insurance. If that's the case and someone in injured on your property, YOU are the responsible party.
  • If the company doesn't have the proper auto insurance and federal licensing, they could be offering heavily discounted rates in order to lure customers that ordinarily wouldn't do business with them.
  • Professional VA moving companies invest lots of money in their crews. Illegitimate companies tend to hire day laborers with no skills or passion for the moving industry.
  • Con artists are unfortunately lurking out there, and always looking to scam unsuspecting customers. If your price seems too good to be true, it probably is.

4 Aspects of Furniture Movers in VA That Will Save You Time and Money

  • How much large furniture needs to be moved? This is the first step in determining a price point for furniture movers.
  • Will you need storage? It’s common during a move that some of the items in the origin will need to be placed in a storage facility rather than into the new place.
  • What do you do with extra stuff? If you have too much furniture and don’t want to put it in storage, consider selling it with a yard sale, online through a service like Craigslist or eBay, or even with friends and family.
  • If all else fails, donate. Many churches can use your old, unwanted furniture, and so can charities. Check out the philanthropy route by asking local churches and charities about what they need, or even giving to a national charity like The American Red Cross or Goodwill.

Do you know quotes

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.

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

The public idea of the trucking industry in the United States popular culture has gone through many transformations. However, images of the masculine side of trucking are a common theme throughout time. The 1940's first made truckers popular, with their songs and movies about truck drivers. Then in the 1950's they were depicted as heroes of the road, living a life of freedom on the open road. Trucking culture peaked in the 1970's as they were glorified as modern days cowboys, outlaws, and rebels. Since then the portrayal has come with a more negative connotation as we see in the 1990's. Unfortunately, the depiction of truck drivers went from such a positive depiction to that of troubled serial killers.

In the 20th century, the 1940 film "They Drive by Night" co-starred Humphrey Bogart. He plays an independent driver struggling to become financially stable and economically independent. This is all set during the times of the Great Depression. Yet another film was released in 1941, called "The Gang's All Here". It is a story of a trucking company that's been targeted by saboteurs.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A properly fitted close-coupled trailer is fitted with a rigid tow bar. It then projects from its front and hooks onto a hook on the tractor. It is important to not that it does not pivot as a draw bar does.

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.

In the moving industry, transportation logistics management is incredibly important. Essentially, it is the management that implements and controls efficiency, the flow of storage of goods, as well as services. This includes related information between the point of origin and the point of consumption to meet customer's specifications. Logistics is quite complex but can be modeled, analyzed, visualized, and optimized by simulation software. Generally, the goal of transportation logistics management is to reduce or cut the use of such resources. A professional working in the field of moving logistics management is called a logistician.

The main purpose of the HOS regulation is to prevent accidents due to driver fatigue. To do this, the number of driving hours per day, as well as the number of driving hours per week, have been limited. Another measure to prevent fatigue is to keep drivers on a 21 to 24-hour schedule in order to maintain a natural sleep/wake cycle. Drivers must take a daily minimum period of rest and are allowed longer "weekend" rest periods. This is in hopes to combat cumulative fatigue effects that accrue on a weekly basis.

In 1991 the film "Thelma & Louise" premiered, rapidly becoming a well known movie. Throughout the movie, a dirty and abrasive truck driver harasses the two women during chance encounters. Author Michael Dunne describes this minor character as "fat and ignorant" and "a lustful fool blinded by a delusion of male superiority". Thelma and Louise exact their revenge by feigning interest in him and then blowing up his tanker truck full of gas.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is a division of the USDOT specializing in highway transportation. The agency's major influential activities are generally separated into two different "programs". The first is the Federal-aid Highway Program. This provides financial aid to support the construction, maintenance, and operation of the U.S. highway network. The second program, the Federal Lands Highway Program, shares a similar name with different intentions. The purpose of this program is to improve transportation involving Federal and Tribal lands. They also focus on preserving "national treasures" for the historic and beatific enjoyment for all.

A circumferential route refers to a public transportation system that follows the route in the shape of a circle. Over time a nickname developed in the European Union, calling transportation networks such as these a "ring road". This is no surprise as Europe has several famous "ring roads" such as the Berliner Ring, the Brussels Ring, the Amsterdam Ring, the Boulevard Périphérique around Paris and the Leeds Inner and Outer ring roads. Other countries adopted the term as well which in turn made the name go international. Australia's Melbourne's Western Ring Road and India's Hyderabad's Outer Ring Road both adopted the name. However in Canada, the term is most commonly used, with "orbital" used to a much lesser extent.   On the contrary, the United States calls many "ring roads" as belt-lines, beltways, or loops instead. For example, the Capital Beltway around Washington, D.C. Some ring roads use terminology such as "Inner Loop" and "Outer Loop". This is, of course, for the sake of directional sense, since compass directions cannot be determined around the entire loop.

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".

Smoke and the Bandit was released in 1977, becoming the third-highest grossing movie. Following only behind Star Wars Episode IV and Close Encounter of the Third Kind, all three movies making an impact on popular culture. Conveniently, during that same year, CB Bears debuted as well. The Saturday morning cartoon features mystery-solving bears who communicate by CB radio. As the 1970's decade began to end and the 80's broke through, the trucking phenomenon had wade. With the rise of cellular phone technology, the CB radio was no longer popular with passenger vehicles, but, truck drivers still use it today.

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.

Known as a truck in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, it is essentially a motor vehicle designed to transport cargo. Otherwise known as a lorry in the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, and Indian Subcontinent. Trucks vary not only in their types, but also in size, power, and configuration, the smallest being mechanically like an automobile. Commercial trucks may be very large and powerful, configured to mount specialized equipment. These are necessary in the case of fire trucks, concrete mixers, and suction excavators etc.

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.
