The Port of Everett, Washington State Ferries and Snohomish County Airport are all nearby and only 25 minutes away is SeaTac Airport.
This is the third time we have moved in as many years, and the Hansen Bros. team stands head and shoulders above the rest. Everyone we spoke to was friendly, professional, and extremely helpful. The moving team worked deliberately and efficiently without feeling like we were standing in a whirlwind or wondering if our things were going to be damaged. Overall, we were extremely pleased with Hansen Bros. We will recommend them to others, and we also plan to use them for our next move. — Gabe P., 6/21/2016See What 2,087 Customers are Saying
