What is the Van Operator of The Year Award?

There are more than 1,500 drivers in the Mayflower Transit system, and Rubio was one of three winners this year. The van operator of the year began in the late 1970s to recognize the men and women who sacrifice so much for a life on the road and who help other families through one of the most stressful times in their lives.

The Chipman team is ecstatic to announce that our very own Wilfredo Espinal -Rubio has won Mayflower’s Transit Van Operator of the Year award.

Wilfredo “Willy” Espinal-Rubio, of our Garden Grove, California branch, was awarded Mayflower Transit’s Van Operator of the Year Award for the household goods west region. The award recognizes Rubio’s outstanding performance in the areas of customer service and safety. United Van Lines President and CEO Jason Mills along with Chairman of the Board of Directors Charles W. McDaniel presented the award at the Company’s recent Learning Conference held in early March in St. Louis.

In his eight years in the industry, Rubio has driven close to a million miles. Motivated by his desire to see the country and to help people, Willy began his journey as a van operator. He believes it is important to understand your customer’s personality in order to provide the best service.

“Safety is important to me because you are taking other people’s belongings and lives in your hands,” Rubio said. “It feels good to know you moved someone and all their goods and are helping to get them in good shape. I like being able to help and serve people.”

Rubio resides in Corona, California.  To learn more about his story and to see a day in his life the Mayflower team has created this video for you to preview.
