SPRINGFIELD, VA, January 29, 2016 – Interstate Van Lines, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has been named the American Moving and Storage Association’s (AMSA) 2015 Independent Mover of the Year. Each year, AMSA presents the award to recognize the industry’s commitment to outstanding performance among independent movers who are not affiliated with a national van line. Interstate is the only company to win this distinguished award twice.

“We are honored to kick off 2016 with such a prestigious award,” says Interstate Van Lines President, John (J.D.) Morrissette.  “When my grandfather opened Interstate’s door in 1943, I’m not sure he could even imagine what the company would be today, 70-plus years later. Every year, we continue to grow, which is a testament to our service and our loyal customers,” adds Morrissette.

In 2015, Interstate handled more than 13,000 moves, which resulted in a 17% revenue increase over 2014. The company sets itself apart with its legendary Top Hat® Service, which is a pledge to remain on the cutting edge of training, methods and technology. As a result, Interstate has earned its reputation as one of the most trusted movers in the region.

Interstate has also garnered a number of awards along the way. In 2015 alone, Interstate was named one the area’s Top 100 Largest Private Companies by the Washington Business Journal; a 2015 Outstanding Corporate Citizen (mid-size business category) by the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce; and a Cornerstone Award Winner by SmartCEO Washington. Interstate also announced recently that it received its seventh Fleet Safety Award from AMSA.

Interstate will accept its award at AMSA’s 97th Annual Education Conference & Expo in New Orleans, March 20-23, 2016.
