Shetler Moving & Storage Recognized as OMEGA MVP
It’s no secret that moving can be a pain. From the inordinate amounts of pots and pans to the miscellaneous knick knacks picked up over the years, getting your belongings moved from home ‘A’ to home ‘B’ becomes a daunting task. Luckily, there is someone out there who prides themselves on their ability to make your transition easier.
In 1899, B.J. Shetler started a simple delivery service in Southern Indiana—Shetler Moving & Storage. They started by delivering the final mile of mail order items from flat boats on the river to the customer’s residence, using only horses and wagons. As time went on and the company grew from wagons to trucks, Shetler was able to join forces with 29 other movers and found Atlas Vans Lines, the second largest relocation company in the nation. By 1984, Shetler expanded to the Cincinnati Metro area and now operates in all of the 48 continental states.
As times have changed, Shetler Moving & Storage has been right alongside of it. “Today’s customer has a lot more goods being moved,” Tom Shelter Jr, president of Shetler Moving said. “But with the interstate highway system becoming more efficient, we can relocate a whole household from Evansville, Indiana to California in just four days! In my grandfather’s day, it would take nearly two weeks, with half as much stuff!”
Shetler not only helps with home moving, but also provides domestic and international corporate relocation services, as well as a safe and secure place to store belongings that you just don’t need around every day.
A family owned and grown company, Shetler Moving & Storage continues to thrive under the direction of B.J.’s great-grandchildren, Bob and Tom Shetler, as well as their children. Whether you are in the need of relocating or warehouse storage, Shetler Moving & Storage can help make the transition easier.

The OMEGA MVP program was organized to help recognize, celebrate and promote the Merchants, Vendors and Partners of OMEGA Processing Solutions. Shetler Moving & Storage, Inc has been an OMEGA merchant since 2015.

In the late 1800s, at the height of the U.S. Industrial Revolution, the average American worked 12-hour days and seven-day weeks in order to eke out a basic living. On September 5, 1882, in protest of these unfair, often unsafe working conditions, 10,000 workers took unpaid time off to march from New York’s City Hall to Union Square, holding the first Labor Day parade in U.S. history. The idea of a “workingman’s holiday” took off, and Congress would legalize the holiday 12 years later, bringing the American workers’ rights squarely into the public’s view.
Today, more than 130 years later, we celebrate the contributions and achievements of American workers on the first Monday of every September. Labor Day is now celebrated with a day off of work filled with festivals, food, and fireworks. Take a look at some of these fun facts about the day:
- The ‘no white after Labor Day’ rule began because families would come home from vacation and pack all of their summer clothes away.
- That means Labor Day (un)officially marks the end of summer and start to a new school year.
- Labor Day is the third most popular holiday weekend for barbecuing, after the Fourth of July and Memorial Day.
- It’s also, according to the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council, the official end to hot dog season. (The official beginning of the season is Memorial Day)
- The switch from NFL pre-season to regular season starts during the week following Labor Day.
- Retailers have turned Labor Day into the second largest ‘sale’ day in the United States. Their first is Black Friday.
ETA’s Certified Payments Professional Program lands Ok in Top 2 percent
[FORT THOMAS, Kentucky — September 1, 2016] OMEGA Processing Solutions is pleased to announce that seven-year OMEGA veteran, Caroline Ok, Merchant Underwriting and Risk, has earned the designation of ETA Certified Payments Professional (CPP), the professional certification program administered by the Electronics Transactions Association. By successfully meeting the ETA’s rigorous certification examination requirements, she has joined an exclusive community of electronic transactions professionals who have earned this distinguished certification.
The ETA CPP program sets the standard for professional performance in the payments industry and is a symbol of excellence. It signifies that an individual has demonstrated the knowledge and skills required to perform competently in today’s complex electronic payments environment.
The ETA CPP certification program was launched in 2011 as a means to recognize the unique skills and knowledge required of electronic transactions professionals. The program recognizes that today’s merchant service providers must have a broad knowledge of the industry and must demonstrate mastery not only of sales, but also pricing and interchange, business process, operations and workflow, products and solutions, as well as risk, regulatory, compliance and security matters. In addition to meeting the program’s education and experience requirements, those awarded the ETA CPP designation must complete a minimum of 36 hours of industry-related professional education every three years.
With less than 2 percent of professionals in the payments industry receiving this designation, the commitment shown by OMEGA and its employees to the ETA CPP certification signifies the company’s dedication to industry excellence and increased customer satisfaction. OMEGA Processing Solutions prides itself in having another one its associates secure this honor.

Consider just a few stats:
