Why the Bird?

Arctic Terns found on Inner Farne Island, Northumberland. Latin name Sterna Paradisaea.

Turn Services invests a great deal of planning, thought, and attention to detail in everything we do — and that includes the design of our logo. So why the bird? Well, it’s not just any bird – it’s an Arctic Tern. This bird migrates mostly over oceans, from the Arctic to Antarctica, spanning over 44,000 miles each year. 

We selected the Arctic Tern because it perfectly embodies who we are: it is highly focused, unbelievably efficient, hardworking, and travels great distances. At Turn Services, we believe that all of these qualities are admirable in a bird, a person, and a great company.

Our company believes in the old adage that success in business means never standing still. Each day of every year, Turn Services strives to enhance its level of service and its commitment to customers.

Just like our namesake and logo, we are focused on working hard and getting to our next destination quickly and efficiently.
