• “This was my first major move and I was not as prepared as I should have been, but your guys were so helpful and understanding. They were so efficient and amazing. They worked quickly, and truthfully, it was a pleasure having them. From the moment they walked in, I felt comfortable and knew I was in good hands. You run an unbelievable business.”

    - Danielle S., Yahoo!
  • “Your team is amazing in their communication, attention to detail, and providing excellent customer service to Sabre's employees and their families for their packing, shipping, and storage needs. Moving to and from an assignment can be terribly stressful for all parties involved, but you and your team really go above and beyond the normal expectations to relieve that stress from the employees and their families.”

    - Lynn W., Principal Global Assignment Services, Sabre Holdings

Next Week is National Consumer Protection Week!

From March 3-9, the Federal Trade Commission is celebrating the 15th anniversary of the National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW). NCPW focuses on encouraging the general public to make more informed decisions when it comes to purchases to avoid getting scammed.

According to RELO Roundtable, the moving industry doesn't play a big role when it comes to promoting NCPW and hasn't participated with the consumer protection project in the past. Organizations most notably absent are the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). However, we here at Arpin Van Lines want to keep you in the know so that you can take advantage of the resources associated with NCPW.

The FTC has contributed a lot of information to www.ncpw.gov, where you can find resources regarding a variety of topics ranging from identity theft to scam alerts. You can also check out the other organizations involved, which include the AARP, BBB, NAACP, and FDA.
