CHOOSING BETWEEN VAN LINES AND MOVING COMPANIES, OR DOING IT YOURSELF

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

A new home or new family, a new job or new retirement – congratulations! You have it in you to go new places®. And, you’ll likely make the most successful move when you leave the heavy lifting to a pro, like Atlas. It’s what we do best – every day. Naturally, we can give you more than a few reasons why you should strongly consider using Atlas. See below, we’ll be brief.

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

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 in for a very pleasant surprise. Moving can be positive, and not one of the most difficult experiences in your life. Ask us for a no obligation, online moving quote.

“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 agent. They work directly with you, they handle your belongings, and they perform the move. That’s why, 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.

This fact speaks the loudest about the service that Atlas delivers daily. In addition, your local Atlas mover is likely a long-standing fixture in your community. They’ve gained and kept their respect in your area by providing the best moving services.

Should You Move Yourself?

Hiring a pro, rather than moving yourself, depends on the value of your time, your desire to coordinate many details, your ability to literally lift the heaviest items in your home, and the size and distance of your move. When either size or distance are great, you may be surprised how efficient a professional can be when comparing the total costs of moving yourself.
