Johnny Abbott Recognized as United’s Van Operator of the Month for October 2020

Stafford Van Operator Johnny Abbott is no doubt one of Hilldrup’s best of the best – and if you’re familiar with his list of accolades and recognition, from not only our organization but the moving and storage industry, you know why! Johnny’s commitment to safety, quality and customer service both in the homes of our customers and while on the road is unmatched. It’s why, yet again, Johnny has been recognized by UniGroup and United Van Lines as Van Operator of the Month – this time for October 2020.

Johnny, based out of Hilldrup’s corporate headquarters, was recognized specifically within the Household Goods category of the Great Lakes/SE Region.

  • Earn a minimum safety performance rating of 25,000
  • Hold a 100 in safety
  • Rate a 1 on a scale of 1 – 5, with 1 being the best, in the areas of Claims, Compliance Safety Accountability, Customer Service, and Updating.

We’re thrilled Johnny has continued to provide award-winning service in the eyes of his customers, our organization and among the industry! Previously, Johnny was named Hilldrup’s Van Operator of the Year in 2019 and has been recognized by UniGroup as a Runner-Up for United Van Lines’ Van Operator of the Month Award, a total of seven times since December 2017.
