Valuable appliances are carefully padded and then moved on specially designed appliance carts for maximum safety.

Your automobile can travel on the same van as your furniture. Our full air ride suspension provides a cushion of air instead of steel springs so all your belongings get a smooth ride.

Your shipment is carefully loaded and arranged in tiers to ensure that your possessions are packed in tightly so as not to shift during transport.

Atlas maintains a fleet of clean, modern tractor-trailers with all of the proper equipment including clean moving pads, logistic straps and decking bars to ensure safe transport of your valued possessions.

Your Atlas crew will take every possible precaution to ensure that your furniture arrives damage free at your new home.

Atlas' Operators Control Center coordinates and monitors the progress of your shipment and stays in constant touch with your van operator to ensure that your preferred scheduling is met.

Your van operator will call you a minimum of 24 hours prior to delivery to make arrangements to meet at your new home. At this time, he will confirm the address and the amount of the C.O.D charges (unless your employer is being invoiced for your move). Arrangements to pay by Visa or Mastercard should be made prior to your shipment being loaded at origin. Your Atlas representative will have discussed this matter with you when they came to perform the visual survey.

Your van operator will also contact your local Atlas agent at destination to advise them of the delivery schedule and ensure they have made the necessary arrangements for any third party services (i.e appliance reconnection) or unpacking of Atlas packed cartons that has been requested.

Atlas and its family service providers will do their utmost to ensure that you have a smooth trouble free move.

Specialized Transportation

We can also utilize Atlas Van Line’ scheduled run service which operates weekly on an east-to-west and west-to east basis serving all major centres. Atlas can arrange for the services of reputable third party firms to ship your vehicle by rail or on an over-the-road car carrier. Your vehicle will be properly strapped down and plywood decking is erected to protect the vehicle from other items on board.



Your possessions are then stored in government approved, pest controlled, sprinklered and climatically controlled warehouses with proper alarms and security devices. In some short term storage situations or if you require a delayed delivery, you may want to consider Atlas' container service which is available in most areas.


Long Distance Moving

Again payment options are cash, certified cheque, money order or VISA, Mastercard or Amex.Your van operator will go to a government weigh scale to weigh his truck before loading your shipment. Because the cost of your move is dependent on the weight of your shipment and the distance you are moving, you should always have a moving consultant come to your home to view the contents.


Local Moving

At the start of your local move, your van operator will do a walk-through of your home to see exactly what is to be moved and to make note of anything that requires special attention or dismantling. Our professional moving consultants can help determine your moving costs, offer the service options you might need and tell you exactly what will happen at every stage of the moving process.



Delicate glassware and china are individually wrapped in clean newsprint with each bundle placed on edge over a thick layer of crushed paper in a specially designed, triple thick walled china barrel for maximum protection. While some items like bedding, towels and books don't necessarily call for professional attention, other items demand the kind of protection that only experienced, professional packers can provide.
