He has been recognized countless times as a Van Operator of the Month Runner-Up as well.

Bob shared, “What I like most about my job is when a customer that has had a bad experience with moving companies sees my crews and I in action and then, within 30 minutes, know how true professionals operate. Their whole perception of our industry changes and at the end of their move they are all smiles.”

Bob has always been an outstanding representation of our organization and our industry. We’re thrilled that his accomplishments continue to be recognized by his customers and United Van Lines as well.
