Long Distance Moving Services


Do you have a relocation planned? Could your move be accurately described as “long distance”?


Whether you’re retiring, accepting a job offer, or relocating your company, there’s one thing that everyone can agree on:


Long-distance moving takes a lot of planning, strategizing, and elbow grease.


First, you have to get your packing resources and accessories together. Then, you have to pack and unpack. And if that wasn’t enough, you have to work hard to coordinate possession dates and real estate deals in different cities, provinces, or countries. 


Here at Atlas Van Lines, we want to make your long-distance relocation as easy as possible. To that end, we have a full list of moving services that are designed to do just that. These would include:

  1. Cross-Border Moving

As a moving company that has helped thousands of people move over the years, we can say with confidence that every relocation comes with its own set of complications. And if your relocation is taking you to another province, things can get complicated in a hurry. When you work with a company like us, you can take a lot of the stress out of your cross-border move. Here’s why:


Any time that you’re picking up a new skill, there’s always a learning curve involved. Between driver’s licenses, healthcare registration, and generally getting oriented in your new city, you have enough on your plate as it is. 


With Atlas Van Lines, there’s no worrying about whether your mover can legally operate in Nova Scotia. We have the resources and the crew members needed to support your long-distance relocation all the way.

  1. Logistics Planning

There are regular, everyday items — like clothes or blankets — that aren’t too difficult to move across long distances. And then there are invaluable, one-of-a-kind items that must be transported safely at all costs.


If you’ve got priceless art or a bunch of industrial-level equipment that has to be moved, our logistics department has got you covered. We can take a hands-on approach to planning and transporting your valuables so that you can focus on managing the other aspects of your move.

  1. Moving Containers

What if packing was as easy as placing your belongings in a single location? What if bridging the gap between “I’ll need a few days for storage.” and “We’re ready to start moving.” was as simple as making a phone call? Believe it or not, moving containers make it possible for you to accomplish all of this and more.


If you’ve got a lot of items to transport and you want a secure and flexible transportation option, then you’ll love what a moving container or two can bring to the table. Get in touch with us to discuss the use of moving containers today!

  1. International Moving Support

When most people picture themselves moving to another country, they tend to focus on the difficulties of adjusting to a new culture or language. But if dealing with different administrative requirements is tricky when you’re moving to a new province, those problems are often magnified when you start crossing national borders.


From immigration departments to visas, transportation, and logistics, we pride ourselves on offering support to individuals and companies that are in the process of moving to another country. We’ll assist with the packing process and we’ll help you unpack and set up your furniture. Long-distance moving just doesn’t get any easier than that.

This one is very tough to answer. After all, some of the factors that may affect the cost of your moving bill might include:


  • The weight of your property
  • Whether you’re relying on additional services like our logistics division or our temporary storage options during your relocation
  • The number of crew members required to move and transport your property
  • Your chosen method of transportation


As a general rule of thumb, your average moving costs within Nova Scotia may cost around four figures. But as a company, we pride ourselves on offering excellent long-distance moving services at a fair price.

The two primary government bodies that regulate Canadian movers in Nova Scotia would be:


  • The federal government; and 
  • The provincial government


If the movers you’re considering have been either federally or provincially incorporated, you can look them up in a database to make sure that they’re a legitimate business. But beyond these registration concerns, Nova Scotia’s provincial government is the body that’s primarily in charge of regulating how movers can operate. These would include:


  • Highway rules and regulations
  • Conditions of carriage
  • Commercial vehicle regulations as handled by the Department of Public Works


In addition to these general regulators, there’s also the Canadian Association of Movers. Members of this organization are required to carry both liability insurance and proper insurance coverage for their employees. 


Other resources for long-distance movers would include the Office of Public Affairs and the Better Business Bureau. These groups might not necessarily have regulatory power, but they can help you spread the word about scammers or potentially give you a head’s up about a company’s history.


When you get right down to it, all long-distance relocations involve the same basic steps:


Packing, unpacking, and setting up your belongings. 


At Atlas Van Lines, we understand that this is often the most labour-intensive part of your move. That’s why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to provide our clients with services that make it possible for us to have your house or your office packed up and ready to go in no time. 


Here are some of the ways that we can simplify your moving supply and packing needs:


1. Packing and Unpacking


Whether you’re moving your business or your family, the process of organizing your property, deciding what you’re taking with you, and putting things away can be tedious enough on its own. But when you’ve got major pieces of furniture like your couch or your grandma’s antique piano to transport, however, the idea of handling the packing process on your own can start to feel quite daunting. 


And then there’s the reality that packing is only half the battle. Once you’ve reached your destination, you still have to unpack your belongings. 


The good news for Atlas Van Lines customers is that we offer packing and unpacking as a part of our full line of moving and packing services. Our crews will literally do the heavy lifting on your behalf while taking steps to protect your floors and your property. Long-distance moves just don’t get any more stress-free than that. 


2. Furniture Assembly


What do kitchen tables, office desks, and bed frames all have in common? They often have to be assembled with screws, nails, and tools after they’ve been unpacked. On a personal level, the last thing you want is to be struggling with furniture the day before your new job is supposed to begin. 


Our moving crews can place your furniture in the exact place you want it. And then they can handle the job of putting it together. It’s a part of our end-to-end moving solution.


3. Temporary Storage


Sometimes purchasing or leasing a new property while in another province just isn’t possible. Maybe the new property needs a final walkthrough or perhaps you’re staying in a hotel until you can find the right place. 


If there’s a gap between your move-out date and your possession date, we can hold on to your property until you’re ready to move in. We understand that long-distance moves can be complicated. And as a company, we’re committed to seeing your relocation through.


Our warehouses have security and temperature control so that your property can be kept safe throughout your storage period. In addition, we also make it easy for you to schedule your move-in date with us. 


We’re here to make your long-distance move as easy as possible!
