Hansen Bros. requests the following of our customers:

  • If you have a scheduled estimate appointment or booked move, please notify us immediately if you or any members of your household have been exposed to COVID-19, tested positive for COVID-19, or are experiencing symptoms including cough, fever, or difficulty breathing. Please rest assured there is NO CHARGE to reschedule your estimate or move due to illness – we will work together to find an alternate date that works for you.
  • Please use disinfectant/cleaner to wipe down commonly touched surfaces, objects, door handles, etc. at your residence.
  • Please make a sink, hand soap, and paper towels available to your outside salesperson and moving crew for handwashing during their time within your home.
  • Please keep all windows open throughout the moving process as this allows for greater airflow and reduces the containment of germs.
  • Please maintain a social distance of 6’ or greater during both your in-person estimate appointment and while moving services are being performed.

Never moved an employee? There are many aspects of an employee relocation to consider. Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage will meet with you to establish a complete employee relocation policy outlining your requirements regarding what your company would like to authorize an employee to move.

Why Choose Us



Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage is locally owned and operated by the same family for four generations, since 1890. We have a well-established reputation for service quality and reliability with a high percentage of repeat household and commercial clients.



We’re a certified ProMover by the American Moving and Storage Association with A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, voted “Best in Western Washington” in 2009 and from 2011 to 2016 by KING5. Our company is fully licensed and insured and member of WMC and AMSA.



Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage provide free, no-obligation in-home estimate and competitive rates, including low minimum rates for shipments moving under 300 miles. We’ve set a refund policy for unused packing materials and three Puget Sound locations to help clients save on travel fee costs.

Allow Hansen Bros. to Manage Your Employee/New Hire Relocations

The policy is written in a no-obligation pricing agreement that can be used for 1 move or 1,000 moves, depending on your needs. This can be customized depending on an employee’s position within the company. Services that can be customized include:

  • Full packing of all loose items
  • Partial packing or no packing at all
  • Packing of just fragile items
  • Transportation (How much is allowed?)
  • Storage while looking for a new residence
  • Shipping auto(s)
  • Shipping motorcycles
  • Shipping boats
  • Bulky items i.e.; pianos, kayaks, canoes, recreational equipment
  • Valuation levels
  • The company paying for everything, just part, or reimbursing the transferee a lump sum?

Plus many other items to consider so the company’s policy and the transferee’s or new hire’s expectations are the same before the relocation begins. A clear understanding of what is allowed and expected helps ensure employee satisfaction and still maintains budgetary constraints.

Moving an employee can be a stressful time for them and their family, so having everyone’s responsibilities outlined helps them plan accordingly. If it’s a new hire, it is good to have a moving policy established before the interview process so that if the topic comes up, the policy is in place, and it is less of a negotiable item.

Hansen Bros. can provide insight into what other businesses are providing across the country to help ensure you are staying competitive in the market. The prospective employee will be able to consider the relocation policy along with your job offer during their decision-making process so there are no surprises later. Starting with a well-defined plan and expectations helps them integrate into their new position easier, increasing productivity and trust with their new employer.

All of the move parameters are addressed in a pricing agreement structured exclusively for your business. The Allied Pricing agreement also automatically awards your business these additional benefits:

  • Free valuation based on the weight of the shipment
  • Preferred pickup and delivery dates
  • Guaranteed pricing levels, even in peak season
  • Direct company billing with prior credit approval
  • Expedited claim service
  • Sets and pairs coverage
  • Shipment tracking

All of this is in a “No Obligation” Pricing Agreement. Whether or not you are planning on moving employees in the near future, a predetermined policy reduces undue stress and saves money when the time arrives.
