Celebrating Van Operator Appreciation Week

This week, we recognize United Van Lines' 4,300 van operators

We dedicate this week to the men & women that keep United Van Lines moving!

United is setting aside the week of May 6-10 to recognize the service and celebrate the dedication of its more 4,300 drivers. “We understand our van operators make many sacrifices for a life on the road,” said Safety Director, Dave Pile. “This week, we want to show our appreciation for their hard work, their compassion and their drive to provide a premier customer experience.” Van operators passing through United Van Lines’ headquarters in suburban St. Louis can participate in special activities, receive giveaway items, be treated to breakfast or lunch and much more. For those drivers unable to visit headquarters, United will have other special giveaways. In addition, United agents across the country are hosting events of their own for the van operators serving their agencies.
