Hi - here is a recent thread where this company was discussed - http://www.movingscam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4817 As you probably know, it's an Atlas agent. On its website it advertises that you can get free full replacement value coverage if you're a member of AAA, so if you're moving interstate you might ask about that.

People in the industry raised some questions about an estimate provided by this company. First, it was charging the customer $850 to self-haul the load, and someone said that it isn't standard practice to list such a fee as a separate line item, although there's nothing illegal about it. Second, Shannon said it would have to charge for a minimum weight of 5000 pounds (the load was estimated at around 2100 pounds) in order to provide a GNTE rather than Nonbinding estimate, and people seemed to think that wasn't right. These things could mean nothing or they could be warning signs. I suggest that you get a couple more quotes.
