ALEXANDRIA, VA — The American Moving & Storage Association congratulates the 2018 Fleet Safety Award winners for their exceptional record of success as the nation’s safest moving and storage company truck and van fleets. These annual awards recognize overall safety, improvement in safety, and creativity and leadership in safety program design.

AMSA Fleet Safety Awards  

Three of the four winners this year are located in Virginia. The 2018 winners are by category:

  • Under 5 Million Miles: Able Moving & Storage of Manassas, Va.
  • 5-10 Million Miles:JK Moving Services of Sterling, Va.
  • Over 10 Million Miles:United Van Lines based in Fenton, Mo.
  • Safety Improvement Award:Hampton Roads Moving & Storage in Suffolk, Va.

The Mileage Awards are based on annual miles traveled and presented to the interstate carrier in each mileage category that has the best weighted combination of the lowest U.S. Department of Transportation recordable accident rate per million miles of vehicle operation, and the lowest vehicle and driver out-of-service rate. The Safety Improvement Award recognizes a carrier’s successful efforts to reduce the incidence of accidents.

“The American Moving & Storage Association proudly honors these winners for their record of excellence in safe vehicle operations,” said Scott Michael, president and CEO. “They have demonstrated a strong commitment to the highest level of safety for their customers and themselves.
