Full Service Storage
"I used Hansen Bros to store stuff for 6 months while travelling out of state. Everyone I dealt with from the sales people over the phone to the driver who dropped off and picked up the boxes were easy to work with and professional. Start to Finish, I couldn't have asked for a smoother experience."
Brian M. / Seattle, WA

How Full Service Storage Works
Your furniture and belongings are inventoried and listed on a manifest describing each item and its condition at the time of pickup. Then your furniture is wrapped in heavy cloth pads, carefully placed into large vaults which are forklifted into our warehouse where they wait until you call for them, whether it’s weeks, months, or years later.
Sofas are first wrapped in soft, clean cloth moving pads and then further protected with plastic stretch wrap. Sofas are then placed on large shelves to ensure they stay clean and have no pressure dents or tears when removed from storage. Oversized items which do not fit into the vaults are also pad wrapped and placed within the racking system for safe keeping.
If your origin or destination location is able to accommodate large moving equipment, the vaults can be transported within our specially designed moving vans and loaded or unloaded at your location. This reduces the risk of damage as less handling is required.
For your short-term storage needs, we also offer storage trailer service. With your possessions pad-wrapped and placed in the securely locked van for storage, possible damage from extra handling is eliminated. Plus the competitive daily rate saves considerable expense.
Advantages of Full Service Storage
One of the biggest advantages to full service storage is that the protection of each item is much better than that achieved by stacking them in a garage or mini storage unit. Many self storage facilities are damp or unheated and if your items are placed directly on a concrete floor, they may absorb moisture possibly creating mold and mildew.
Moving your items in and out of self storage or mini storage location can be a time-consuming chore, especially if they have long halls and multiple stories requiring an access elevator. If you are hiring a moving company, this becomes an expensive waste of time and if you are a “do it yourself” individual, it is a long strenuous process, increasing the possibility of damage and injury. Full service storage actually saves you time and money as your items are transported directly to our warehouse where they are efficiently loaded into storage vaults. Should you need to access your items, all it takes is a phone call to your warehouse location, and arrangements for access can be made.
In the event that you are out of the greater Seattle area, by having a manifest of all your items in full service storage, you can simply call the warehouse and request that one or more items be shipped or delivered – without having to return to the greater Seattle area. This is particularly convenient should you need to ship your items across the country or around the world. Best of all, since we already have a manifest and the weight of your shipment, we are able to give you an accurate quote for shipping and get it on its way without any hassle.
By comparison, moving your items stored in a mini storage or self storage location can be challenging – this usually requires a return trip to town or arranging for a shipper’s representative to act on your behalf. Accurate shipping cost estimate for items in self storage is difficult if not impossible. The moving estimator is unable to see what is going to be shipped inside the storage unit or if it is packed adequately to meet transportation requirements. In order to ensure an accurate estimate for moving items from self storage, you will probably have to unload a good portion of the storage locker for viewing.

If you are moving cross country using a van line, many self storage facilities are not accessible with a large tractor trailer unit. This would require additional charges by the moving company to “shuttle” the goods from the self storage building to the waiting cross country moving van. This also increases the risk of damage due to the additional handling. For more information about Hansen Bros. Full Service Storage, please use our Contact Us form or call us at 1-888-300-7222.
