    What makes Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage your most valuable ally in the relocation process?

    As one of the oldest moving and storage companies in the state of Washington, our company has spent over 130 years in the moving industry. Peter Hansen set out to create a moving business that would be the most trusted provider of moving and storage services, whether it’s local, long-distance, interstate, or international. Four generations of his family have since followed that vision and have made all of our customers happy and satisfied in the process.

    With over 250 years of combined moving industry knowledge that our executives have, it would be an understatement to say that we are a company with experience. Although there are other Eastside Seattle moving companies out there, none of them have the commitment and history that Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage brings to the table. We have kept up with the times, constantly upgrading our business, keeping it up-to-date with modern equipment, and the use of the best relocation techniques and procedures in the industry.

    Our Eastside Seattle movers are proud of being:

    • Fully licensed and insured.
    • The owner of a well-established reputation for service quality and reliability.
    • Ranked A+ by the Better Business Bureau.
    • Owner of a fleet of clean and safe vehicles that are able to accomodating both large and small moves.
    • A company that offers flexible pricing and payment options.

    After all, we did not earn outstanding customer testimonials and were not voted “Best in Western Washington” by KING5 seven times by chance. Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage has worked hard to be where it is today, and people recognize this devotion and diligence in all the Seattle moving services that we offer.

    Alex, Ted and Kyle were awesome! The whole move went very well, from first phone call to last boxed moved! I have already recommended Hanson Bros. to someone who just asked about what movers I used and how did it go. Thanks so much.
