Moving Month: Mover Highlight UniGroup
UniGroup is one of the nation’s leading transportation companies in the household goods industry. Founded in 1988, it is the parent company to United Van Lines, the nation’s leading corporate mover, and Mayflower Transit, a well-known name in the moving industry. Between the two van lines, UniGroup handles one in three professional interstate moves. UniGroup is also the parent company of UniGroup Logistics, UniGroup Worldwide and other transportation related brands. The depth of UniGroup’s history is contained in its people and agent network, its culture and its unique way of doing business.
As VP Government and Industry Affair/Deputy General Counsel, Heather Paraino notes, “UniGroup is committed to providing a premier customer experience with an emphasis on quality, innovation and safety. We are pleased to be able to serve our residential and national account customers and honored to be able to assist our military members by providing a stress-free relocation experience as a small token of appreciation for their service.”
UniGroup’s focus on putting people first and embracing and valuing the differences of every individual have been the cornerstone of its success – fostering strong relationships with its associates, who in turn, provide outstanding service to customers. UniGroup and their agents are committed to promoting values of drive, collaboration and delivery, which serve as the foundation for its work in its communities and across the county. As an example, in an effort to eradicate hunger across the U.S., UniGroup partners with Move For Hunger and works with its Mayflower and United Van Lines agents across the country to collect non-perishable foods through drives and customer education during the pre-move process. Additionally, UniGroup is the driving force behind MoveRescue, a consumer assistance program designed by UniGroup in 2003 to help customers who are looking for reputable moving companies or who may have fallen victim to fraudulent or criminal activity in the moving process.
ATA’s Moving and Storage Conference values the work UniGroup and its agents do and are so pleased support them and their efforts in the moving and storage industry.
