Hilldrup Van Operator, Johnny Abbott, Recognized by United Van Lines

Hilldrup knows that our biggest strength is our people – our dedicated, hard-working employees who make Hilldrup the best moving company in the industry. That’s why we can’t help but take pride when one of our own is recognized on a national level. Johnny Abbott, a van operator based out of our Stafford branch, was recently recognized by United Van Lines as a Runner-Up in the Household Goods category for Van Operator of the Month for December 2017.

“I’ve done it all my life, and I do it well,” said Johnny with a laugh. “Hilldrup is a really a good company to work for – they definitely look out for their drivers.”

Each month, an announcement is shared with United agents with the winner and runners-up of United’s Van Operator of the Month from each of the 4 regions: Western, Great Lakes/Southeast, West-Central and Northeast. Johnny rose to the rank of Runner-Up for the Great Lakes/Southeast region among all of United’s domestic agents across the United States.

“About 90% of the time I’m on the road I’m traveling from the West to the East coast,” said Johnny. “Every day is different as a van operator – it’s what I enjoy about the job.”

Congratulations on this exciting accomplishment, Johnny! On behalf of everyone at Hilldrup, thank you for your commitment to excellence and safety to those we serve.
