It's always a good idea to get to know your movers.

How much time do you put into getting to know your mover? It's more important than you might think; after all, these professional van operators (PVOs) are responsible for a huge moment in your life. Getting to know them is a way to make the most out of any moving experience.

Each year, Atlas Van Lines sheds light on PVOs with its "King of the Road Survey". From this questionnaire, we learn all sorts of valuable insights:

93 percent of PVOs use smartphones. Of that number, 94 percent rely on these devices to check email.

Exercise is important to this group; in fact, 75 percent rely on moving furniture for their workouts. Healthy eating is also big on the road, with 44 percent eating fresh fruit and 79 percent opting for water over sugary drinks.

These PVOs rely on their favorite brands to get them through the week. Popular options include Dunkin' Donuts coffee, Michelin tires, Comfort Inn hotels, Rand McNally electronic log devices, Tums antacids and Shell Rotella oil.

But the best PVOs on the open road work for Atlas Van Lines, where moving is all about the experience.
