National moving company Atlas Van Lines has recognized two of its South Sound moving agents as recipients of its annual Milton M. Hill Quality Award.

Ace Relocation Systems, Inc., based in Kent, and Atlantic Relocation Systems, based in Tacoma, were recognized with the award. Named for former Atlas director Milt Hill, “those recognized (by the award) have proved continuous success in providing harmonious moving experiences for their customers,” according to a release from Evansville, Ind.-based Atlas. 

Criteria for the award included high scores in warehouse inspections, hauling revenue requirements, estimating accuracy and customer satisfaction.

Fifty-three agencies earned the award; the two area winners are the only two within Washington state.

“The award is the definitive mark of distinction for Atlas agents,” said Glen Dunkerson, chairman and CEO of Atlas World Group. “They are truly the best of the best and I am honored to work alongside such dedicated individuals.”
