On the Move: Atlanta’s Top Mobile Services From shopping to personal care and beyond, some of the city's best on-wheel offerings
Atlanta residents are busy! We have places to go and people to see. So it helps when we can access the services we need close to home. Fortunately, the city and surrounding areas have become a mecca for an array of unique mobile services, all of which are designed to bring a high level of convenience to locals’ lives. From shopping to personal care and beyond, there’s either a truck you can visit or a vehicle that will come straight to your door, offering you whatever it is that’s on your list. It takes “takeout” to a whole new level. So be sure to check out these fantastic metro Atlanta-based options.
Amazon Treasure Truck
Amazon’s Treasure Truck is the latest mobile delight to hit the metro scene. The bright blue carnival-themed vehicle began traveling the streets of Atlanta in late July. One surprise item is selected to be on the truck during each offer day; to find out what’s on the truck, you can sign up for text messages by texting “TRUCK” to 24193 or receive in-app notifications from the free Amazon app. When you receive an alert, you can purchase the selected item through the app and pick it up from the truck at a designated time and location. “Treasures” are usually highly coveted items (from trending tech to holiday must-haves) and sell out quickly—and Atlanta is only one of six states in the country to have a Treasure Truck. So sign up and get ready to shop!
Noah’s Bark Mobile Veterinary Services
Pets are members of the family, and their health and well-being are top priorities for owners everywhere.

That’s why Eric Mueller, DVM, and his team will come to you, rain or shine. Offering a range of services, including wellness exams, vaccinations, dental cleanings, x-rays and more, Noah’s Bark provides north Atlanta residents with high-quality care and peace of mind for their pets.
