National Van Lines

At first blush, a corporate relocation might seem demanding. Perhaps even daunting. But neither “D” applies when you choose a boutique mover such as mid-sized National Van Lines to oversee your organization or team-member relocations. Instead, rely on the National Van Lines 7 Ts of corporate relocation:

  • Tech
  • Touch (not)
  • Teamwork
  • Tenure
  • Tips
  • Tailor
  • Trust


National Van Lines uses the latest technology to ensure safe packing, handling, transportation and—if need be—storage of your employee or corporate belongings. When it comes to moving and storing your property, security is the key. At National Van Lines, we provide the latest in security technology at all of our facilities and we inventory, tag and pad your treasures before placing them in a storage vault.

We also can provide state-of-the-art climate-control solutions so your employees can relax knowing their fragile items are protected while in our care. National Van Lines promises reliable inventory, secured locations and long- and short-term arrangements for pick-up and delivery. Whether you need to store a household item, business asset or any other items, National Van Lines provides secure moving-and-storage solutions. Factor in our air ride-equipped vans and our tech will take you far.

Touch (not)

In these uncertain times, you and your team members will feel comfortable knowing National Van Lines offers zero-touch moving estimates for your corporate relocation. Your organization and employees now enjoy a choice of online tools just as accurate as the old-fashioned method of in-person visits—only safer and far more convenient. We offer ReloQuote (powered by Yembo)—a state-of-the-art estimating tool. Using your smartphone or tablet, your employees move room-to-room, taking snapshots of their belongings. Average time to complete: 15 minutes.

Plus, there are no appointments to make, keep,  cancel or reschedule. That means employees can get an estimate 24/7. How’s that for the utmost in convenience? If your team members enjoy face-to-face contact, but still want to remain in the virtual world, FaceTime might be the best choice. This telephony tool allows an employee to survey his home in real time to obtain a clear-cut idea of what it will cost to move across the country. Our moving-estimate expert will talk—and virtually walk—your team members through this easy-to-use process. Questions can be asked and answered in real time. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s a relief to know our FREE social distance-approved estimates go the distance.

Our agents work together like sprockets spinning in a well-oiled machine.

Plus, we don’t just let anyone join our team. All our agents undergo a thorough vetting process and must remain in solid Better Business Bureau standing.
