We value all of our customers big and small. From every day accounts to one load of stone for someone's driveway.

We know time is money which is why our trucks are armed with GPS unit that track your load in live time.

Headquarters:

Arms Trucking headquarters is in the former Claridon Elementary School in East Claridon.  After the school district closed the school several years ago Arms bought the building, part of it dating back to the early 1900's.  The company remodeled half the school for its offices and dispatch center--the rest is unchanged from when it was a school with classrooms, hallways lined with lockers and a gym.  Arms makes the building available for community activities, and it is used regularly by the Geauga County MRDD Board, the Geauga County Sheriff's Department Parent Project and other organizations.

Located at 14818 Mayfield Rd.

Community: 

Howard Bates is active in the community and believes that giving back is important for his company and himself. He is active on the Geauga County Fairboard and was the president from 2009 - 2010. He is always there to lend a hand and volunteer himself or his company's resources. In 2008, along with the Geauga Rotary, he helped see that a Bookmobile was delivered to a community in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

In 2007, Howard Bates received the Emerald Leader Award. This award is presented annually to an individual, a business and/or a non-profit agency that exemplifies outstanding leadership by positive contributions through volunteerism, philanthropy, or innovation that impact the quality of life in Geauga County.
