Business by the Golden Rule.
In 1948, a group of 33 entrepreneurs in moving and storage formed an alliance. These entrepreneurs believed they could help one another build their businesses by better serving customers. They envisioned their own cooperative from coast to coast, doing business according to the golden rule. Taking the name "Atlas® Van Lines," the group established headquarters in Chicago, Illinois. This group of independent Agents (commonly referred to around the halls of Atlas as moving companies, or simply local Atlas movers) have gone on build a global network of moving companies that help our customers go new places®.
Atlas is comprised of a family of companies headquartered in Evansville, Indiana. Atlas provides comprehensive, global services for people and businesses that need to relocate. True to their vision, the packers and crew at Atlas Van Lines continue to handle customers’ belongings as if they are their own. More than 430 independent Atlas moving companies across the U.S. and Canada, plus 1,500 global partners in 17 countries, work in concert to bring reliable, stress-free service to customers every day.
