Collins Brothers handles domestic household goods moves,some international operations, hospitality installations, commercial moves and final mile home deliveries for designers and stores.
“On behalf of the employees and professional van operators of Collins Brothers, I am honored to receive this most prestigious award,” said Frank Webers, CEO of Collins Brothers. “It is our staff of professionals that have made this possible.”
The van line agent is consistently recognized with industry awards and honors from Atlas Van Lines. For example, Collins Brothers is a 16-time winner of the Milton M. Hill Quality Award – which recognizes the company’s outstanding performance ratings in customer satisfaction – given annually by Atlas Van Lines, among other awards. As a result of their outstanding moving services, Collins Brothers attained at least a 90 percent favorable response when customers were asked if they would again choose the agency’s services.
In addition to high-quality service to its customers, Collins Brothers immerses itself in community involvement and giving back. The company recently contributed trailers and packing materials to help send relief items to Hurricane Sandy victims, and donated drivers and trucks to the American Red Cross in Manhattan after the Sept. 11 attacks.
“For more than 100 years, Collins Brothers has built its business around first-class service, and Atlas is honored to have them as part of our agent family,” said Glen Dunkerson, chairman and CEO of Atlas Van Lines. “Collins Brothers produces exceptional results year after year, and earning one of AMSA’s top awards is well-deserved.
