A story of the 15-year-old office with over 20,000 successful moves so far! 

Over the past 15 years, our German team has worked tirelessly to build a strong reputation in the industry, and we are incredibly proud of all that they have accomplished. From helping families move to new homes to assisting businesses with complex relocations, our team has always gone above and beyond to ensure that every customer receives the highest level of service possible. This year, in May, is their birthday! Here is how they started…
AIG German office celebrates 15th anniversary

Arpin International Group’s German office is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, and what a journey it has been! The office has grown tremendously from humble beginnings with just two employees to now employing 23 staff members, including our subsidiary Vokus Moving.

When Hans Oelze, the managing director at that time, and Juergen Alberti, manager of customer relations, started working together in the newly opened office on May 1, 2008.  On the first day at work, no office desks or equipment were to be seen. Basically, they had to set up everything from scratch, including the office furniture and computers, before they could start working. As you can see from the photo taken on May 12, 2008, the office was half empty, but Hans and Juergen were determined to build a successful business.

Fast forward 15 years, Arpin International Group’s German office has become one of the most successful in the industry. The AIG German office is the only AIG subsidiary worldwide with its own trucks, full-time packers, and storage space, making us a one-stop shop in Germany for all our clients’ international moving needs.

There, we have organized over 20,000 moves in the past 15 years, helping families and businesses move across the country and worldwide. Our experienced team is dedicated to making your move as smooth and stress-free as possible, and one of the main characteristics we are described in customers’ reviews are exceptional customer service, a can-do attitude, and human touch.

What sets us apart from our competitors is our family-oriented approach to business. Our German staff members are loyal, with eight of them working for AIG in Germany for over 10 years. This is almost 35% of our regional workforce, which shows how much our team enjoys working with us in our unique Arpin culture.

As we celebrate our 15th anniversary, we thank our clients for trusting us with their moves over the years. We understand that moving can be a stressful experience, but with us, you can rest assured that your belongings will be in safe hands – from the beginning to the end of your move. Whether you are moving locally or internationally, we have the expertise and resources to make your move a success.
