In keeping with Hansen Bros. Moving and Storage’s overall philosophy, we welcome the opportunity to provide as much or as little service as the customer desires. Most companies try to fit your task into a small box of their offerings which makes it easy for them instead of investigating every possible solution. At Hansen Bros. we are here to meet the customer’s needs first which we believe is the true mark of customer service.

With experience gained from years of working with clients we take into consideration their project size, number of items, weight, how fragile are the items, value, transit time and budget to construct the plan. We find and offer a menu of various solutions which enable our customers to pick and choose the best solution for them by having the information to make an informed decision. Besides all of our full service capabilities we also have solutions for some clients that would like to do just part or all of the work themselves.

Arsen, Kory, and Moses (I hope I spelled all of their names correctly) were AWESOME. Worked extremely hard, very cheerful and professional. There was one mis-hap, a broken glass top for a bureau, but they notified me immediately and gave me instructions for filing a claim.

Packing Materials

Packing is a time consuming labor intensive process. Since labor packing is time and time is money any amount of packing you take care of yourself will save on your budget. If you are thinking of packing some or all of your own belongings the planning process should take a few items into consideration.

First would be how much time in days do you have before your moving day. Whether you are moving yourself or having professionals load your items, being completely packed the day before move day makes the loading process much easier and much less hectic for you. Since the loading process requires basically putting a puzzle together by stacking your articles into the truck, whoever is doing the loading needs to be able to see all of the items that will be moving. That helps the fit of the load which makes it much more secure and safer riding during the journey.

The way to pack more efficiently, make the items safer and speed the loading process is use our standard size moving boxes and materials. The same materials our Hansen Bros. packers use are available at any of our 3 conveniently located facilities. We purchase in very large quantities so we are able to pass our savings onto you. If you would like to view just a few of the items in stock please click here. When you visit we would be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding your packing project or call 1-888-300-7222.

Self storage or Mini storage lockers – PortaBox Storage

If you are considering storing your belongings, need access to items on a regular basis and you are physically able to move them yourself, full service storage is probably not the best solution for your goods. Self storage or mini storage allows the owner to access the locker whenever they would like during their business hours. The problem is it isn’t convenient to get to your items because you need to rent a truck, load the items and unload so you can carry them down long hallways and up elevators to get to your locker.

The economical PortaBox Storage system delivers containers right to your driveway so there is no need to rent a truck or handle your goods numerous times. Ground level loading saves time and your back. After they are loaded and you have put your own padlock on the door just give us a call. Our PortaBox Storage driver picks them up and places them in our modern warehouse for safe keeping. Access is as easy as calling a day or 2 before you would like to access so when you arrive your container(s) are sitting on the floor of the warehouse for easy entry. Unlock your padlock and there are your items within steps of your truck or car. If you would like to save even more, instead of PortaBox delivering containers to your door bring the goods to our warehouse saving the delivery fee. Either way it is a trouble-free way to store your belongings. If you would like additional information click here or for online ordering go to Still have questions,  please give us a call at 1-888-300-7222.

There are also car trailers and dollies available which enable your vehicle to be towed behind the moving van.

Small shipment containerized shipping by PortaBox

Small shipments of household goods sometimes fall below minimums for Moving Companies which can increase the cost per pound and extend pick up and delivery times. Renting a truck involves tedious driving and additional expenses for fuel and lodging along the way. For small amounts of furniture and misc. items Portabox Storage offers a cost effective shipping solution by transporting the entire container to your destination anywhere in the country.

How does it work? PortaBox Storage delivers a shipping container to your origin location for you to load or you bring the items to 1 of our convenient locations therefore saving the delivery fee. Once the items are securely loaded, the container is locked, banded and weighed preparing it for shipping. By placing the container in a common carrier system the shipment is transported with a fairly short delivery window to most points in the country. Then the container is delivered to your final destination or we can make arrangements for delivery right into your home. If you would like additional information on small shipment solutions please contact us or call 1-888-300-7222.
