Long-distance container moving is convenient and flexible, offering all kinds of benefits to movers. First, Atlas Van Lines has moving containers of varying sizes, allowing us to handle a wide range of moves, from 1-bedroom apartments to 5-bedroom homes. In essence, no matter how many belongings you have, our containers can accommodate you. Plus, when you choose to transport your belongings via a shipping container, you can pack and load at your own pace (or hire someone to help you). There’s no rush. Once your moving container has been loaded, a professional driver will transport it to your destination. You can rest easy knowing that every moving container is tracked. All containers are logged through Atlas Van Lines’ internal tracking system, which allows us to locate your container anywhere in the world. 

Yes, Atlas Van Lines’ long-distance moving containers are as secure as can be. All furniture is padded and wrapped in moving blankets for extra protection, before being stored inside our “Exclusive-Use” Affinity Vault container. Beyond the furniture, any valuables will also be locked and sealed inside a waterproof container. Even better, if your new home or office isn’t quite ready for occupancy, we still store your moving containers in one of our climate-controlled warehouses. All Atlas Van Lines moving centers are clean, temperature-regulated, pest-free, and equipped with cutting-edge security systems. 


As mentioned, all long-distance moving containers are tracked throughout the entirety of the journey. In addition, if your moving container takes up temporary residence in one of our warehouses, each piece of your shipment will be inventoried and inspected for damage. From there, special tracking is used within the warehouse to ensure the extra protection of your items.


Here at Atlas Van Lines, our top priority is keeping your most valued possessions safe until they are transported to your home.

Items that you may not wish to move via long-distance shipping container include anything alive, such as plants, perishable food that can spoil, and hazardous materials, such as paint, aerosols, pesticides, gasoline, and more. In addition, while you may be advised not to pack valuables like money or jewellery into moving containers, Atlas Van Lines takes extra precautions (e.g. locking and sealing them inside waterproof containers and tracking them) to ensure these items stay safe throughout the journey. 

The cost of moving containers varies widely. This is because several factors determine how much they cost. For example, the total weight of your belongings, the length of time your items need to be stored (if applicable), and the distance between your current location and your final destination will all be used to calculate the cost. That said, you can typically expect a moving container to set you back between three and four figures. For a more precise estimate, don’t hesitate to contact Atlas Van Lines. Any one of our representatives would be pleased to walk you through our Affinity Vault container solutions and provide you with an estimate.
