Memorial Day 2022: Honoring The Fallen The Best Way We Know How
Wednesday May 25, 2022

This Memorial Day, we appreciate the men and women who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and our gold-star families. We have the utmost respect for all those who serve. Advance Relocation Systems honors them by providing high value, customer-oriented services to ease the stress of frequent military moves.

For most moving companies, military moves aren’t the most desirable because they’re not as profitable as regular household moves. At Advance Relocation Systems, we choose to see military moves differently. We have an entire division dedicated to making the relocation process easier for the men and women who serve our nation. 

In addition to moving service men and women to new bases, we also specialize in a type of move called Blue Bark. 

“Blue bark refers to any U.S. military personnel, U.S. citizen civilian employees of the Department of Defense, and the dependents of both categories who travel in connection with the death of an immediate family member. It also includes the designated escorts for dependents of deceased military members. The term is also used to designate the personal property shipment of a deceased member.” - www.USLegal.com

Blue Bark shipments are such sensitive shipments. At ARS, we treat them as an opportunity to honor our fallen heroes and their families. 

Our respect for and relationship with the U.S. military goes beyond just working with them. We also have quite a few members of our team who are military veterans. Hiring veterans is just one of the ways that we show our appreciation. In our experience, veterans make some of the best team members because they bring a very high level of training and discipline.

At Advance Relocation Systems, our goal is to provide a moving experience that leaves our clients satisfied. We value our opportunities to work with the military and Department of Defense on household and institutional moves. On the occasion of Memorial Day, we reflect on what a privilege it is to honor our nation’s heroes and their families. May this Memorial Day be a blessed one for you and your family.
