PVO'S Know It Takes A Lot To Be A Pro

Their job is about planning and precision. It’s about knowing all the pieces and figuring out how they fit together. Every step of the move is in the hands of an Atlas Professional Van Operator (PVO). 

That’s why we set aside a week every September to recognize what it takes to be a pro. From September 21-25, 2015, Atlas Van Lines and its network of agencies celebrated BRAVO (Boosting Recognition of Atlas Van Operators).

BRAVO week saw increased participation from the agency family in 2015. Nearly 160 locations across the United States and Canada threw parties, bought lunches, passed out gifts and hosted other various events to celebrate PVOs.

“We fully embrace BRAVO week and use it to demonstrate our appreciation not only for PVOs, but all of our crew members and staff. We are people who work tremendously hard,” said Jeffrey Mason, President at R.C. Mason Movers, Inc. (1362).

“There is a huge effort to get through busy season. This is the least we can do as an Agent to thank everyone.” Thank you’s during BRAVO week often come by way of meals, gift cards, and free weight tickets. R.C. Mason Movers knows that any token of appreciation is welcomed by their staff. 

“It gives everyone a chance to relax and get away from the stressful and challenging summer. So, we go all out. We cook breakfast almost every morning and do lunch a few times during the week. There is always a corn hole tournament that lasts a few days and we’ll make sure the winner walks away with a little money. We also hold an ice cream social one day. We enjoy it at the Atlas Convention, so we brought a little bit of that home."
