They include coverage, logistics, and moving and storage solutions.  And because Allied Van Lines understands your needs, they’ve launched “Corporate Express”, a service that is specifically designed to handle small corporate relocations for long-distance moves. Among the many recipients of this new service, this is also an applicable solution for small-shipment candidates like newly graduated professionals, interns, and temporary employees.

This is especially beneficial in the busier, more congested major metro areas. In traditional spaces, small relocations can take weeks. With Allied’s alternative service, transferees can relocate in days – specifying pick-up and delivery dates that can be made flexible, free of charge.
