• “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

The First Annual "Moving With Arpin" Contest

Arpin Van Lines is proud to announce the start of a new contest, “Moving With Arpin!” The contest is open to any undergraduate student attending a college or university in the state of Rhode Island. The concept of the contest is to have students create a promotional video about Arpin’s services in the most creative way possible.

Submissions will be uploaded to the Arpin Van Lines’ YouTube® channel, where the public can vote for their favorite video.  A cash prize of $1,500 will be awarded to the video submission with the most Likes, along with an iPad and an iTouch awarded to the second and third place finishers respectively.  All promo videos are to be no longer than sixty (60) seconds in length.

Here are some important dates:

  • September 24, 2012: The contest begins.
  • November 30, 2012: Submission(s) deadline.
  • December 3, 2012: Videos will be hosted on the Arpin Van Lines’ YouTube® Channel.
  • December 31, 2012: Voting ends.
  • January 4, 2013: Finalists will be contacted.

To get in the spirit of the contest, Arpin created a video to join in on the fun.

“Our Marketing Advisory Board suggested that we create a video contest looking for off-the-wall ideas to help energize our brand. YouTube is the second largest search engine, and with the ease of video production, we felt that was the best avenue to pursue,” said Senior Vice President of Agency Development, Conrad Swanson. “We wanted to jump start the contest, and with a fun idea from Kerrie LaPlante, we pretty much had the premise we were looking for. We were able to cast each of our department members in one of the roles in the video, so it became a fun team-building experience. In the end, we took ideas from all members of our department, put it on video, and created something that was not only fun, but an example of what the Board envisioned.”
