The movement and transportation of a college team’s equipment is an awesome responsibility. There is the value of the cargo to consider - in most cases, the equipment is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. One must also consider the time-sensitivity of college sporting events. The teams themselves, but also the sponsors and advertisers involved, are all counting on the fact that, come game-time, the teams are ready to play and the event takes place as planned.
Central Van is proud to be the official moving partner of the West Virginia Mountaineers for the past seven years. The Mountaineers of West Virginia University, are an NCAA Division I school that is located in Morgantown, WV. In 2012, The Mountaineers joined the Big 12 conference and also became a member of the Mid-American Conference as an affiliate member for men's soccer.
Our employees work tirelessly to ensure that moving the equipment of The Mountaineers is a smooth process and that equipment arrives on time and in perfect, game-ready condition for the team’s road games. In addition to transporting the equipment, our employees assist in the loading and unloading process. The Mountaineers travel to schools like the University of Texas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, and Iowa State and Central Van routinely ships the team equipment to these interstate destinations, no matter the distance. WVU’s football team has had the “the hardest transportation schedule in the country, within the 48 states” over the past four years (since 2015) with the “longest average away game mileage (1,150 miles one way) of all NCAA DI football teams.” Despite the tough schedule, Central Van has performed tremendously, never missing a deadline.
Because of their hard work, our employees are appreciated and treated like valued members of the Mountaineers’ team. It’s rewarding to know that another exciting Mountaineers game has taken place on time and without issue because of the effort and commitment of our coordinators, drivers, and many other employees.
