CAR TRANSPORT, MOTORCYCLE MOVER, PIANO MOVERS, POOL TABLES

While it’s all special, some pieces are actually called “Special Items.”

Special or unique items? Yes, we move them. Every day – thousands of times each year. We bring the necessary equipment and specifically skilled people to move your special items.

KNOWING THE EXTRA STEPS

Atlas Agents are equipped with the knowledge and methods to move even the most special items. They know how to make the extra arrangements to prepare for packing and transporting. If there’s a unique piece or situation beyond our scope, however, your local agent will bring in the specific tools and experience to move your item.

UNUSUAL MOVES

Atlas Agents have transported a vintage Asian crown, a genuine Apollo Space Capsule, and large backyard playsets that resemble pirate ships or rocket ships. Agents have even used a helicopter to move to and from the floor of the Grand Canyon. We’re your partner when it comes to a unique move, no matter how unusual.

Our Special-Item Service Includes:


Car Transport

From your personal car transport, to managing the time-sensitive move of a complete fleet, Atlas and our partners have done it all. Based on your unique requirements, your local Atlas Agent can begin the correct process.

Motorcycle Shippers

Whether you’re moving your bike to a new permanent address, or shipping it to a bike week, Atlas motorcycle movers have the experience to move your motor bike. We drain the fuel before loading the bike onto the truck using a ramp. We pad for protection, and temporarily remove any vulnerable protruding components (with your permission). We secure your bike with straps to prevent shifting during transport. Begin here, with your local Atlas Agent.

Boat Movers

Local Atlas Agents regularly help customers with boat transport. Agents can ship only the boat as a special service, or include it as part of a complete household move. We can advise you on the best options for safe, secure boat transport, including preparing your boat for shipping. Contact your local Atlas Agent today for a free quote on boat shipping.

Piano Movers

For uprights and vintage spinets, Atlas piano movers are trained in the proper handling and equipment. The appropriate dolly and pad wrapping is used to protect each instrument and delicate finishes. We make sure the floor is protected before we roll out or in. A padded piano moving board allows us to safely carry the piano case, including up and down stairways. Inside the trailer, we secure the piano with straps to minimize shifting. For concert grand pianos, a special Atlas crew or partner is required to remove and reassemble legs, pedals, lid, and music rack before and after transport. Your local Atlas Agent can provide a free quote for any type of piano move.

Pool Table Movers

Your Atlas Agent can assess your pool or billiards table, and know when to call in the experts. A proper move and packing requires detaching the frame, slate, pockets, felt, and table legs. Reassembly is only handled by the experts. Your local Atlas Agent knows where to begin to move the table, and can assist in finding the experts to reassemble the table at your new address. In many cases, the assembler is a partner or subcontractor of the Agent.

Playsets And Swing Sets

It’s not at all unusual for a child to be attached to today’s well-made playsets. Atlas understands this attachment, and moves swing sets or playsets from one home to another, using expert local crews for assembly and reassembly. Your local Atlas Agent can provide a free quote to move your family’s playset.
