Hilldrup’s Differentiating Values for Drivers
We’re values-driven and driver-focused! Our values ensure that we are an employer of choice among drivers in our industry, and our focus on solid driver partnerships allows for our drivers to have longevity in their careers with Hilldrup and help to simplify their lives as well.
Hilldrup’s support of our drivers goes well beyond what is commonly provided in the industry. Everyone at Hilldrup – from our Senior Management team on down – understands that our drivers are the backbone of our organization and deserve the highest levels of recognition and support for all that they do! Hilldrup is pleased to have our own full-time Driver Advocate to address the needs of those who drive for us. Dispatch support for our drivers is also provided seven days a week.
Steady and consistent work is what we offer our drivers—something that our competitors struggle to offer. Our drivers are busy with move assignments throughout the year – not just during peak season. Hilldrup is the largest booker in the UniGroup system and the third largest hauler out of over 200 household goods agents. Packing and hauling opportunities are also available.
Hilldrup offers an on-site garage/shop at our Corporate Headquarters for minor repairs and maintenance. We’re also proud to reveal one of the newest additions to our Corporate Headquarters – a Driver’s Lounge where drivers can relax, sleep in a full-size bed, and even do laundry.
Extended time away from friends and family is a major struggle for drivers. At Hilldrup, drivers can live anywhere and will always be supported by our team; in fact, dispatch support is available seven days a week.
