Invest in America signs Allied Van Lines agent.
Under a CUcorp partnering pact with one of Allied Van Lines' largest agents, Carey Moving & Storage Co. of Charlotte, N.C.., eligible CU members can receive price discounts up to 60% for both local and interstate moves and on storage.
CU members also can take advantage of "enhanced transit times, expedited claims settlements and complementary pairs and sets valuation protection" on broken furniture, said CUcorp in detailing the service offer.
The agreement with Allied follows a similar discount and finance arrangement that started this month on recreational vehicles with Thor Corp. the nation's largest RV manufacturer.
Meanwhile, CUcorp, an arm of the Michigan Credit Union League, said it is in discussion with other Fortune 500 companies, which it did not name, to arrange similar discount programs under branding patterned after its original linkup with GM and Chrysler and a Ford Motor Co. pilot.
CUcorp said the Invest brand is designed to demonstrate the industry's support of U.S.-based companies "to keep local economies and jobs strong." There are nearly 2,000 CUs actively promoting the entire Invest in America program.
