With a trove of Industry Awards, this Moving Professional has racked up the equivalent of 58 trips around planet Earth with over 1,450,000 safe miles during his 38 year journey in the Relocation industry. To put it in another perspective, since Vega and Roadrunner are Houston based; this is the equivalent of driving to the Moon and back over three times!
In 2010, Atlas Van Lines, Inc. awarded Richard Top Driver Honors, and he was also honored as Industry Runner-up for the Super Van Operator Award at the American Moving and Storage Association’s Annual Conference.
If that weren’t enough to convince someone that Richard is “The Best of the Best”, how about this statistic: During 2010, Richard Vega loaded, transported, and delivered over ½ million pounds (592,602 lbs. to be exact) of household goods incurring 1 claim amounting to a miniscule $54 Fifty-Four Dollars in cargo loss or damages. Along with his Safe Mileage, this was enough to earn Richard the coveted “Superior Achievement Award” from Atlas Van Lines. To give some perspective on how amazing a feat this is, consider: on average, movers can expect to see claims on approximately 20% of all household good shipments they perform .
Richard, originally from San Antonio, Texas, began his career in 1972, fresh off his second combat tour of Vietnam where he proudly served his country as a United States Marine. He credits much of his success as a Professional Van Operator to his experiences in the Marine Corp., which he admits prepared him for any of the myriad of challenges his unique profession has presented over the years. Richard’s fearless, ready-to-roll attitude comes in handy when he is met with a challenging job. For instance, during the recent harsh winter, he was forced to dig a several foot deep by over one-hundred foot length trench in the snow just to enable access to his customer’s home.
Though Richard is modest about his achievements, he clearly provides insights as to what makes him unique and of great value to his clients, many of whom have relocated with Richard numerous times and through multiple generations. The list of his customers reads like a “who’s who” of Americans: Celebrities, Fortune 500 CEO’s, Government dignitaries, Movie Stars, Top Athletes, the list continues.
