Our Company

American Van Lines launched April 2011 in Chicago as an independent motor carrier and van line focused exclusively on relocating the household goods for our military families within the contiguous United States and Alaska.

In 2017 American Van Lines partnered with Atlas Van Lines in order to provide service to the national account market.  Atlas Van Lines is the second largest van line in North America and is one of the best known and most trusted names in moving. 

As an Atlas Interstate agent, American Van Lines is poised to be a premier transportation service provider. We offer unparalleled customer service to the U.S. Department of Defense, its military branches, their families, and all national account customers.
