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.

    Take a ride on Victoria clipper

    If you like riding a boat but the gondola is too slow for you, maybe you will enjoy a ride on Victoria Clipper. Ok, a ferry ride is not the fastest way to travel by boat. But at least it is not man-powered.

    These are not the only fun activities around Newcastle WA

    Those are the best fun activities around Newcastle WA. Of course, there are many more great things that you can do to relax and have fun. However, you will have to find them on your own.

    You might just end up liking it so much that you decide to move here

    If you are preparing to move to Newcastle, before you start thinking about fun activities, you need to make sure that your relocation is organized well. If you hired movers Newcastle WA and their full moving service to give you a hand then all you have to think about is cleaning your new home, unpacking, arranging your furniture, and decorating.

    Get to your new home before your movers arrive

    One of the first things that you have to do when you enter your new home is cleaning. However, cleaning can be very difficult if your cross country movers Seattle already delivered your boxes and your new home is loaded with your items. That is why the best thing to do is to get to your new home at least a couple of hours before your movers so you could have an empty home for yourself. Think about this before you go. Prepare your cleaning gear and your cleaning products, talk to your movers, and find a way to get to your home before they do.

    Don’t stop until you unpack everything

    If you managed to clean your new home before your long distance movers Seattle arrives, then the next step is to unpack your boxes. However, before you do, check your boxes and your items to see if everything is there and undamaged. Maybe you thought about this in advance and you have hired their packing and unpacking services as well. If you had, then your movers will do the unpacking as well. If not, you will have to unpack your boxes on your own. This is a difficult and tiring task. Especially after a  long and difficult relocation.

    Still, it is very important to do it right away and not to postpone the unpacking process. Many people have trouble with unpacking. So it is not unusual to see unpacked boxes in someone’s home months after they’ve moved in. If you do not want this to happen to you, do the unpacking in one stroke.

    Arrange your furniture or let your movers give you a hand

    Hopefully, you have thought about this day in advance. If you did, then you had a blueprint of your new home and decided on furniture placement before you moved. Then all you have to do is place the furniture where you want. An even better solution is to hire an unpacking service that will help you to place your items wherever you want. If you will be doing this on your own, be careful not to get hurt. Moving heavy furniture can be dangerous. Especially If you do not have anyone to help you. Once you place your furniture it is time to think about relaxing and doing some fun activities in Newcastle WA.
