Atlas storage

We don’t only move your goods, we can store them for you too!


Do you require safe temporary or long-term storage space? We can offer short- or long-term storage at one of our facilities in either Zurich or Basel. We also have our own highly secure, customs bonded warehouse facility at our head office location in The Netherlands. This location is very close to the port of Rotterdam where we can safely store your belongings either enroute from overseas to final delivery in Switzerland or pending export clearance approval to an overseas destination. We will always offer you the most secure and cost-effective solution.

Besides our own warehouse facilities, we can also store your goods with our trusted partners around the globe. Just give us a call and we will make all the arrangements for you.

Frequently asked questions
Any questions?

It is not required but highly recommended. A survey allows us to accurately estimate the volume of the household goods that you would like to ship. Additionally, it provides us with the opportunity to assess the local situation (access, parking spots, special requirements, etc.). A virtual survey is also possible and is sometimes preferred given distances and time zones.

Alternatively, you can provide a detailed inventory and any additional information about your move. This enables us to provide you with an indicative quotation.

We recommend that you schedule your survey at least 1 month prior to your preferred packing date. Summer is our busy season and currently we are seeing it extended from May to September. If you plan to move during this period, a survey 2-4 months in advanced is recommended.

A survey usually takes about 30 min to 1 hour.

Decide which items you would like to ship.

Identify items that may require special treatment (e.g. valuable or fragile objects).

Inform us of any difficult situations that might have occurred when you moved into your current home.

Have an idea of critical dates for your move, such as property handover dates, flights, when you would like your goods in your new location etc. so that packing dates can be booked accordingly.

You do not need to confirm your move with us immediately upon receiving a quote.  However, it is helpful for planning purposes if you can confirm 1-2 months in advance of your preferred packing dates. Especially for a move during high season (May – September)!

The time to pack a move depends on the volume of the household goods and any specific service requirements.

Yes and no. For insurance purposed it is best that our professional crews pack your items. If you would like to do some packing in advance, we are happy to bring you packing material. However, please do not close the boxes so that your Atlas crew can view the contents and confirm that they are packed correctly.

Please note, some countries with stricter customs clearance/inspections do not permit  boxes packed by owner, for this reason we recommend leaving boxes open so we can seal and sign off for them.

The import of alcohol is heavily restricted in most countries. Each county has their own regulations concerning alcohol and food and your Atlas move manager will inform you of your destination country’s regulations accordingly.

It is highly recommended but not mandatory.

Do not pack jewelry, cash, or important documents (e.g. marriage certificates, medical records, birth certificates etc.) in your shipment. We recommend that you hand-carry these items in person to your new destination.

There are a lot of things to consider when moving. Please download our Atlas Move Checklist to help you keep track!

Top service from A-Z.I chose Atlas Movers back then because they have a top Google rating and now I understand why and I can only agree with them. We moved to Bahrain from Switzerland and had to have some of our belongings sent via AirFright. Communication was great from start to finish. The first few interviews took place over the phone. I felt in good hands at all times. I got emails back to me even on weekends and late in the evening. A big thank you to Abdel, who packed our things carefully yet quickly and for his friendly and professional manner! Thanks to Stephanie, who was always at our side. The takeover in Bahrain also went smoothly. Would do a relocation again with Atlas Movers anytime! Thanks to the whole team!

Exceptional from start to finish.In the past 2 years I have undertaken major moves from Singapore to Switzerland and Switzerland to Italy. My career has necessitated numerous international moves over the years, employing numerous different removal companies.ATLAS has excelled in every aspect, where others have been disappointing.A clear proposal and a fair quote was followed with exceptional communications from Jennifer, our move coordinator, and reliable and punctual movers at both ends.I was particularly impressed with the responsiveness and flexibility ATLAS showed when the odd issue did arise due to changes in timings and delivery location on my part.Recommended without hesitation.

By far the most professional, friendly, caring and hard working moving company I have ever used. They took all the stress away and treated all our items like it was their own. 5*+ service and could not recommend a company more highly.

Absolutely professional and personal service from start to finish. I had a big move (for me) from Switzerland to Uk and they ably guided me through everything. In particular, the level of detail and care put into packing all my personal possessions was astounding. If you need help with a move, look no further than Atlas, I would not hesitate to use them again.

Great experience working with John and Nicole from Atlas for my move from Sweden to the USA.When I started looking for a mover it took me about a year before I finally nailed down a time for the move. Whenever I had questions John explained the process well and, whenever I wanted a new quote he always responded to me quickly with updates. After I finally booked the move with Atlas, Nicole took over and guided me through the whole process. She kept me updated with all the dates, from pickup, to loading, to ship sailing, arrival, etc. When the quantity of stuff ended up being higher than initial estimate, they quickly issued a refund for the overage, and fixed an issue with wire transfer. When my things arrived, some items were lost in transit. After reaching out to their partners with no luck, Nicole helped me file an insurance claim and that was also quickly approved and paid out without any hassle.Throughout the process I really appreciate how Nicole kept me updated every step of the way without me ever needing to ask her. More than a few times I would wonder about the status, and I’d get an email from her the same day or next with a current update as if she read my mind. Moving is always stressful but she made it so I never worried about it. Despite some issues with the move, they were very good with resolving the issue quickly. Overall John and Nicole at Atlas made my move very easy and stress-free. I’d definitely recommend them. If for some reason the political climate takes a turn for the worse and I need to leave the country, I’ll definitely reach out to them again!

Excellent company / team all the way. Right from the beginning to the end someone was always here and I felt I was really appreciated as a customer and person. Atlas was here for me from the moment on I decided to do the move with them from Toronto to Switzerland. I would move anytime again with Atlas and will recommend Atlas to all my friends.
