Lorry drivers and satnav technology

Being a lorry drivers isn’t an easy job contrary to what some may think. Besides the long hours and sometimes physically demanding days, moving a huge vehicle through sometimes unbearable traffic can be quite a task especially for those who have to travel through busy cities and towns where there are tons of restrictions and spaces that your lorry just won’t fit into.

Luckily for some more fortunate lorry drivers, they have set routes which they get used to over time and after a few months with know the area like the back of their hand. Unfortunately for others, they will have to head off in a new direction almost every day and not knowing exactly where you can and cannot go due to traffic restrictions, low hanging bridges and narrow alleys. This can quickly become a nightmare, especially since most navigation systems were designed with cars in mind and thus don’t take into account large, abnormally shaped and heavy vehicles.

Navtruck

Navtruck however provides such drivers with a great alternative to getting around without having to worry about backing their lorry up for an eternity, because their GPS sent them down the tiniest road in the city. Not only does this app take into account lorry restricted roads when planning your route, it also avoids any low bridge overpasses with width and height restrictions.

This alone is something which can make life so much easier but some of the other commercial considerations just take this app to the next level. This app not only allows you to input the dimensions of your lorry to ensure that all roads selected are appropriate, it also allows you to change between vehicles of different sizes which have already been inputted automatically. This means that no matter which type of lorry you have to drive around for the day switching is quick and simple.

Smartphone app

There are several other ‘little’ features that also enhance this app just a little more, such as the fact that highways are preferred to smaller roads or that it avoids U-turns at all costs. These of course are apart from conventional navigation system add-ons such as live traffic and weather updates or points of interest- although the points of interest are custom designed for lorry users such as truck stops or weigh stations or rest areas.

This app is available on IPhone platforms through IOS and can easily be downloaded and installed. There are of course customised extras which can also be purchased with this app such as special features including alerts for mixer which optimises safety when transporting a mixer.

It goes without saying that just like most IPhone apps worth mentioning, you have a wide selection of languages, the app can be used while on phone calls or while other apps are also being used. All in all a great app for any lorry driver, making life just that much easier and working that much safer.

Have a plan!

It’s needful to put your things to the boxes as they are in your rooms. You won’t mix the kitchenware with your underwear, will you?

The best engines of 2017

Like every year, also in this year was the 19th year of prestigious inquiry Engine of the year, in which  Ferrari took the gold. But it isn’t any surprise because they took the price of the best engine last year too. However, other known names scrapped because of front places, and hybrid engines from BMW and Honda mixed up with cards. Vice-versa, you nearly can’t find diesel engines in results.

Jury, which judge the engines was consisted of 58 journalists of all the world. And the trend is clear. While in the past the front bars have been rolling down economical diesels, followed by hybrids and then small-volume turbocharged aggregates, now engines come to the foreground, which are only for the chosen ones. This is especially true of the main category where the powerful, supercharged 3.9-liter 8-cylinder from the sinful precious Ferrari 488 GTB has been placed for the second time.

It is not for everyone

As we have mentioned above, dominant attenuation of diesel engines have caused growth of expensive and strong engines, like in 488. Ferrari’s overcrowded engine was once again crowned with success. The Maranella carmaker confirmed it as the first milestone in the sports engine class of the year and also in its volume category from three to four liters. So the springing stallion has a hetrik. He added gold even in the “New Motor of the Year” class last year, but he couldn’t have been here this time. On the other side we can also find the engine, which scored last year. And again from the most exclusive class – SuperSports class. It is a flat, supercharged, three-liter 6-cylinder Porsche 911 with variable turbocharger geometry. We can even certainly say, that he improved his position. So the Porche Turbo doesn’t hurt either.

The Tricycle was closed by a hybrid sports car from Munich’s BMW brand called i8. His hybrid engine was placed just behind the Porsche 911 with a total of 151 points. However, against Ferrari’s winning engine, it loses up to 100 points. This lead points up to dominance of overcrowded Italian engines.

In the top ten was Audi engines, specifically the 2.5-liter 5-cylinder, Ford EcoBoost engine from Ford, which can be found in the new Ford Fiesta, Focus and Mondeo models. On the 6th place was an electric motor from a well known company Tesla, under the guidance of visionary Elon Muska, and immediately followed by a French 1.2 liter PSA Peugeot – Citroen.

Ecology was also important

You can’t easy find these ecological cars for low prices. “The green engine of the year” class was taken by Model S of Tesla, before the plug-in Hybrid SuperSport BMW i8 and the clean electric car Chevrolet Bolt. A pair of engines from BMW, specifically the electric and hybrid engine from the model series i3, obtained around 80 points. There was no shame nor for Volvo, and for their hybrid 2-liter engine, which also drives the XC90 or V90 models. Tesla still wins, and the fact is, that point difference between Tesla and Volvo is 142 points. And this feature just confirm the dominance of Tesla.

New engine of the year

Strong engines also dominated the most exciting class, such as the “New Engine of the Year”. Here is hybrid the winner, but in combination with the 3.5-liter 6-cylinder and three electric engines for the amazing Honda NSX coupe. The new 4-cylinder diesel 220d in the Mercedese-Benz E class at least in any case defends the middle class. It ended up among the news on the second bar. By the way, this is the only diesel engine in statistics. You can’t find others. And the third is again honest 6-cylinder 2.9 bi-turbo for the sharp Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Verde.

Totally top engines

Even in the “Sports Motor of the Year” class, we have no chance of finding anything popular. Here reigns the Ferrari 488 GTB and behind it the atmospheric 8-cylinder 4.0 V8 for sharp versions of Porsche 911 GTR, GT3 RS and R. Now you are asking, what is here for “basic” people? So we can find the answer to this question among the winners of smaller volume classes. But most of them are old well-known. In a one-liter class the gold is for 1.0 EcoBoost 3-cylinder from Ford and the 1.4-liter 3-cylinder 1.2-liter PureTech from PSA.

One level higher, among the engines with capacity between 1.4 and 1.8 liters, was again rewarded the premium brand – BMW with its 1.5-liter 3-cylinder coupled with an electric motor in superSports8. However, the most people should for this one at least 30 years. In our chart wasn’t mentioned the name of favorite German brand- Volkswagen. Fotŕ this brand only the eyes were crying because the new 4-cylinder 1.5 TSI did not move to more than fourth place. But is at last praiseworthy. At least they have something to improve to the next year’s Engine of the Year, where he will attack the hetrik a red horse from Italy.

How to move wisely? Useful tips for carefree moving.

You have to move away but you are concerned? Inspire yourself by our advices how to move reasonably and mainly without stress. To have everything under control.

Have a plan

Plan everything thoroughly about the moving in time. Plan every step of moving, whether it’s a room, a flat or an office, all you have to do is plan. And in advance you should also think of the removal service. Order them in good time to avoid of occupied term. Especially the last weekend before the end of the month isn‘t often free.

It has a reason. This is when the lease is over. Removal company will be available on request for a visit and give you an approximate cost of transportation. They will plan the necessary staff, a suitable truck, the number of ways and the order in which things will be taken. The informations about on which floor do you live, if the lift is available, size and capacity of the lift and also dimensions of staircase are really important. Because details often take decisions during the moving.

Permissions

You shouldn’t forget about possibly permissions. For example, parking next to the entrance isn’t always matter of course. If the entrance is forbidden for trucks, it is necessary to arrange a permission from the city office. Before the transportation check the staircase. Although is‘s common space, the neighbors can store unnecessary things or have flowers to preserve, and so on. If you moving the whole apartment, you should also remind it of other tenants of the apartment or panel building. In order to avoid any misunderstandings.

Which moving company to choose

Fortunately, thanks to us and our portal, you don‘t have to spend hours on the computer and look for the right company on the Internet. Just register on our website, fill in the order and wait. Then you just have to choose the right shipper or removal company and it is done. The difference between larger and renowned companies and smaller ones is mainly in the price. Their system is based on a specific amount for a flat that is different from the number of rooms depending on the area, square meters. This price doesn‘t include a shipping charge and a standing charge, as well as various surcharges, such as overpayments or staircases if there is no elevator in the house, heavy duty charges and daytime or holiday pay surcharges.

On the other hand, the advantega is, that they have wide fleet and they will send you a car of the right size. From some companies you can buy packiging material or they can even provide you for a charge a space if you don’t have enough. Disadvantage is more expensive transportation and harder estimate for the price, that you will pay.

To the smaller companies you will pay exact amount per hour, regardless of the floor, the possibility of lifts, removal and packaging. Amount of this price is dependent of the number of workers, it also includes standing cars, and in the first hour there is a shipment. Most companies charge after one hour every started half an hour or fifteen minutes. You will pay only for heavy loads or moving over long distances. Many smaller companies don‘t charge surcharges for free days and holidays. So the biggest advantage of this smaller companies is lower price and chance to count an approximate price.

Smaller disadvantage is, that they have limited fleet and during the moving a bigger appartment or house, it may happen that everything won‘t fit in the car at once.

Pack thoroughly…

Don’t forget about thorough packing, to avoid of possible damages. The strong paper boxes with holds on both sides are appropriate for packaging, and you will appreciate it when simply lifting and wearing. Moreover, they are made of high quality multi-layer board with reinforced walls and bottom. Covers from the shops are free, but they don’t have necessary capacity, so ensure the bottom of the box for example by taping, and be careful during the transport that the buttom is not opened or damaged.

Rope up more pieces

If you need to bring for example books, rope them up together before putting into the box. At least 5-7 books. Don‘t forget that book and documents have thier weight. Therefore is the best to choose smaller boxes. Not only you and shippers won‘t pick up one large box, but during the transportation can be damaged. Less is more. And this also apply on the moving. Transfering of more ligher boxes is more convenient than effort with one large. You should better take closable boxes, to not to damage things you are transporting during the ride.

Fragile things and texitles

Fragile things thoroughly pack into bubble foil before you put them into the box. If you don’t want to spend your money on it or you don’t have it at home, you can use newspaper as well. It isn’t economically demanding and it will safe glass and fragile things from scratches and possible damage very well.

If you are transporting textiles, use the plastic waste bags. Buy coarser bags and also be careful about overload. Very practical are plastic bags with vacuum suction, which you can use later to store seasonal clothing or feathers. Everything mark thoroughly. It is useful to number your boxes because you can quickly chceck, if something is missing.

Notify the staff of the shipping service by yourself about breakable things and heavy boxes.

Electronics

Breakable electronics pack into the boxes. Refill and defrost the frigde. Be aware that it can’t be swich on immediately. As a result of transport, the cooling system may not function properly. Secure the washing machine with the screws to prevent damage.

Finally the last advice. Things of personal and everyday needs transport at the end to have them right by your hand after moving. If you think on such things ahead, you will avoid stress and you will move reasonably and without problems.
