Additional Services

If you’re thinking about moving, there is a lot of planning involved. From packing to settling in, let Atlas® moving companies provide services to help you go new places®, stress-free.

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.


Atlas movers 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 mover will bring in the specific tools and experience to move your item.


Atlas movers have transported a vintage Asian crown, a genuine Apollo Space Capsule, and large backyard playsets that resemble pirate ships or rocket ships. Atlas has 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. Check out our infographic on Most Interesting Things Moved by Atlas.
