Why choose Atlas® over other van lines or doing it yourself?

You have it in you to go new places.®
Leave the heavy lifting to us.

Whether you have a new home or new family, a new job or new retirement, you have it in you to go new places®. And you’ll make the most successful move when you leave the heavy lifting to a pro, like Atlas. It’s what we do best. We can give you more than a few reasons why you should consider using Atlas.

“SHOULD I USE A PROFESSIONAL MOVER, LIKE A VAN LINE?”

You've likely heard that moving is one of the most stressful situations in life. However, if you’ve moved with a professional before, you know the burden they can lift from you, and you know the help begins well before the actual moving day. If you’ve never used a pro, you’re about to learn that moving doesn't have to be difficult — it can be a positive experience. Ask us for a no obligation, online moving estimate.

“WHICH VAN LINE SHOULD I USE?”

We’re proud to be the second largest van line in North America, making Atlas one of the best known and most trusted names in moving. While we’re a large and secure company, we’re made up of local agents. They work directly with you, they handle your belongings, and they perform the move. More than our size, we’re most proud of our strict Atlas Agent quality requirements. Atlas standards surpass even those set by the industry – the stringent AMSA* certification process known as ProMover. If a prospective agent doesn’t meet our requirements in twelve critical customer areas, they don’t earn the Atlas stripes, even if they do qualify as a ProMover. Your local Atlas Agent can provide a free estimate. Begin here.

Should You Move Yourself?

If you're not prepared to spend significantly more time moving, coordinate many details at once, or literally lift the heaviest items in your home, you should consider hiring a pro. The hidden costs of moving yourself only multiply along with the size and distance of your move. You may be surprised how efficient a professional can be compared to the total costs of moving yourself.
