Atlantic Relocation Systems in Atlanta: DOT # doesn't match

Postby snazz » Thu Mar 31, 2005 1:53 pm

I am waiting for a quote from Atlantic Relocation Systems (an agent for Atlas) in Atlanta. Their Atlanta office is their Corporate Headquarters and largest office.

So, following your advice under How to Find a Reputable Mover, I looked the up DOT number (125550) the agent gave me for this office and it comes up with an Atlas office in Evansville, Indiana (which is not listed on the brochure they gave us).

I am confused. Is Atlantic Relocation Systems in Atlanta legitimate or what?

Thanks for your help.

Local movers sign on with national van lines to offer interstate service. So the carrier on your interstate move would be Atlas Van Lines in Indiana. Atlantic is just their local rep in Atlanta. Atlantic isn't requred to have a DOT number of their own, because they are a rep for Atlas.

Snazz,

Yes they are very legit. One of Atlas' larger agents.

Thanks Nancy and Michael for your answers. Will keep them in my list of possible movers.

Anyone know of a good agent in the Atlanta area for North American Van Lines?

There are two NAVL agents in your area, Beltmann and A1 Freeman. They are fairly new because Atlantic used to be with NAVL. They were the only agent in town, and later switched to Atlas Van Lines. It was a quick transition and NAVL scrambled to get new coverage there. Both of these agencies are part of larger agency groups, the Beltmann group is one of the largest in the NAVL system. A1 Freeman is probably in the top group too.
