Founded in 1890, Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage has successfully weathered many history-changing events including the Great Seattle Fire, WWI, the Spanish Flu of 1918, the Great Depression, WWII, the 2008 recession, and 9/11 among many other public crises. We are taking the current COVID-19 threat very seriously and will promptly adhere to any and all directives from local, state and federal government officials. Hansen Bros. has been categorized as an essential industry business (moving & relocation) within the current mandate established by Washington State Governor Jay Inslee.


As an essential industry business, we will maintain normal operations until such time as either company management determines we must close our offices or we are directed to do so by a governmental authority. We are taking extensive precautionary measures including the adoption of all CDC guidelines and the establishment of our own policies intended to minimize health risks for all customers, employees, contractors, vendors, and community stakeholders. We are proud to be able to support the needs of our customers during this crucial time but are prepared to quickly change course as required.

Stay safe together with Hansen Bros. Moving and Storage

The COVID-19 crisis is fluid and there are many uncertainties and factors outside of our control that may, with little or no advance notice, impact our delivery of moving & storage services. Please be aware the current crisis could potentially result in small inconveniences such as a delayed project start time or significant inconveniences such as the complete rescheduling of services.

Although there are many unknowns to be navigated, you can be certain that Hansen Bros. will be timely and transparent in our communications regarding servicing your moving & storage needs, and our professional relocation consultants will work diligently to offer creative solutions in the event your project is impacted by the current health crisis.

Steps Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage is Taking:

  • Company-wide Implementation of all precautionary measures recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
  • Office staff and moving crews are being monitored daily for symptoms and/or known exposure by management and asked to go home, contact their healthcare provider, and self-quarantine as directed. Staff that experience symptoms and/or aware of exposure when not at work have been directed to stay home and notify their supervisor.
  • Office staff and moving crews are receiving daily briefings on precautionary measures and have been directed to follow them on and off the job.
  • Office staff and moving crews are being instructed to maintain appropriate “social distance” of 6 feet minimum between one another, customers, and all other people.
  • Office staff and moving crews are being provided with appropriate hand sanitizer and surface disinfecting supplies. They have been directed to disinfect truck cabs and moving equipment between each move to the best of their ability. These supplies will continue to be replenished as we are able, based on availability from retailers.
  • Moving crews will be furnished with work gloves to be worn during the moving process and disinfected both during their work and between customers.
  • Moving crews will be furnished with appropriate masks (when available) to be worn during the moving process, as circumstances require.
  • Hansen Bros. is limiting visitation to our branch offices. If you wish to purchase moving boxes or supplies, please simply call in your order and we will happily deliver to your vehicle outside.
  • Hansen Bros. is offering Virtual Estimate Appointments! For more information, please visit our Virtual Estimate Appointment page or ask about this terrific option when speaking with one of our professional relocation consultants.

Steps We’re Asking Customers To Take Prior To Our Arrival At Your Residence:

  • Please notify us immediately if you or any members of your household have been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms including cough, fever, or difficulty breathing.
  • 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 residence and office windows open throughout the moving process as this allows for greater airflow and less potential containment of germs.

We are all in this together.  The team at Hansen Bros. is proud to continue offering our wide range of services in accordance with the necessary precautions outlined above. Whether you or your business will be moving down the street, across the country, or around the world, we are here to make the process seamless & safe for you just as we’ve done for well over a century.

    Whether you are recruiting nationwide or worldwide for your business in the Northwest or transferring employees between branch locations anywhere in the country or the world, Hansen Bros. and Allied have a solution you can count on.

    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. 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:

    The 2 young men who did my move were fantastic. They were very efficient and made sure that I was satisfied at every step. They are to be commended as excellent employees and great marketing for your company.

    • 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 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.
