A brief history of Arpin Preferred Movers

Buddy’s Father Leo Morgan started Howard’s Van Lines in 1966 at the age of 28 working with our military families. From the time Buddy was very small he spent a lot of time with his father at work.

He went right into the moving business at the age of 14, and then he met his wife Cindy while in high school, and then she began working in the family business.

The family worked local, and as they grew, they decided to branch out and open their own company, Arpin Preferred Movers in Dayton, Ohio.

“By this time the children had grown and both are involved in the moving business with us. Believe it or not, this year our oldest granddaughter is working in the summer months, so now we are on our 4th generation in our family business.”

QUOTE” said Buddy.

Arpin Preferred Movers is proud to say the company is still services its military families. Formerly affiliated with Arpin Van Lines since 1983, Arpin Preferred Movers became an interstate agent for Bekins Van Lines in 2022 with Bekins’ acquisition of Arpin Van Lines.
