Making Your Move

On The Move

If you're considering the daunting task of moving your company, help is just a phone call--or a mouse click--away. Here are some resources you can turn to:

Atlas also offers a Web site stocked with relocation-related information, accessible at http://www.atlasvanlines.com

  • Dickson Moving Technologies offers an array of relocation fliers, brochures and computer software programs, including: "Bidding Office Moves," a program that calculates projected costs; and a 30-page Super Task List, about as thorough a checklist as there is for entrepreneurs facing a move. For information, call Dickson at (407) 566-8517.
