Tips for Household Moving to Atlanta, GA
Apparently it’s Georgia-week here at American Auto Shipping. A few days ago, we discussed car transport services to the Atlanta metro area, and today we’re going to be dishing out some household moving tips to Atlanta, Georgia, as well as some information about the city, in our weekly “Household Moving Tips” blog series. If you follow our blog at all, or if you simply know your geography, you’ll know that Atlanta is the largest city in the state of Georgia, as well as its capital, and is also the anchor of the Atlanta Metropolitan Statistical Area, one of the largest metro areas in the entire region. This makes household moving to Atlanta a lot easier to find and also a lot more cost-effective as well.
Typically the anchor city of a metropolitan area is going to be large and sprawling, and Atlanta is no exception. Household moving companies like to run routes through major cities, as that’s typically where they find the majority of their freight. Atlanta is big, and sprawling, and there are many bedroom communities and cities that surround it. This makes household moving to the entire Atlanta area a lot more affordable for a number of people, since the operating cost for the shipper to move to a bedroom city or to Atlanta proper is about the same. This means better prices for you, and typically faster booking and scheduling if you’re moving to or from anywhere in the Atlanta area.
Atlanta is an old city, which means that it was built up before the advent of the automobile. This can make household moving services into Atlanta proper more difficult for nationwide moving trucks, which are often built like semi-trucks and trailers as opposed to your usual U-Haul truck. If you’re moving into or out of an area that your moving company’s truck can’t physically get to, it will likely result in your goods being transferred into the custody of a local mover with smaller trucks that can access those areas that your nationwide hauler can’t physically get to. Most of the time this service is included with your overall costs for household moving to Atlanta, but you’ll want to double-check with your agent or representative to learn more about this service and the details that come with it.
