Our story

Four decades of experience


Atlas International Movers has over 40 years of experience providing the highest quality relocation services to its private and commercial customers.

Founded in The Netherlands in 1981, Atlas International Movers originally operated as a local moving company until in 2011 when the company was acquired by Dees Peters who, with his relocation expertise, expanded the company’s operations to international relocations. Dees Peters still oversees the growth of the organisation while Jan Koets manages the day-to-day operations in The Netherlands and continues to grow Atlas’s presence in the industry. Today Atlas’ office and top of the line storage facility is located in in Rijssenhout, The Netherlands and several custom fitted removal truck & trailers are on the move continuously throughout Europe.
