Before you pack, you'll need the right materials in the proper amounts. Atlas packers and movers know which packing materials, such as packing boxes, and techniques are right for every item. Atlas recommends you use the same professional grade materials we do. These include double- and triple-cell constructed cartons, cushioning wraps, and packing tape (see the complete list below). Atlas can provide everything at affordable prices; just ask your Atlas Account Representative what you need.
Atlas inspects items before they go onto the truck. We want to ensure everything has the proper protection for safe transport. So, if your Atlas Professional Van Operator or a crew member asks you to repack something, it's because we are looking out for your best interests. If you prefer, we will repack the item for a modest charge.
We ask that you pack high-value items in the presence of your Atlas Professional Van Operator or packing crew, so we can identify these items and write them on the inventory. If you prefer, your Atlas crew will, for a fee, pack any item to ensure it is properly protected. By the same token, your Atlas Agent can make a custom carton for anything you wish. For your special and valuable items, this added protection can be a wise investment.
Note: Some things, such as grandfather clocks and hot tubs, require special preparation. Although Atlas does not prepare these items, we can recommend a reputable provider.
