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.

.

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.

    Get ready to have some fun in Seattle!

    Here’s our cherry-picked list of places and attractions that are perfect for having fun in Seattle in springtime:

    • Tulip Festival
    • Sail to Victoria
    • Visit the Discovery Park
    • Check the Mariners out
    • Walk on the Waterfront
    • Take a stroll in one of the gardens
    • Enjoy a cold craft beer or two
    • Give the Seattle Aquarium a tour

    Of course, this is but a fraction of what this glorious city has to offer. There are many more attractions that are well worth your time but we feel that the above selection is a great way to start. If you are feeling particularly adventurous, you might want to ensure that you have enough energy for all of them. Hiring movers and packers Seattle will take away most of the work, allowing you to focus on having fun. And that is what life’s all about!

    Tulip Festival

    To start with, you may want to get into the springtime mood right off the proverbial bat. And there is no better place to do so than the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. It is held in April and features numerous fields of amazingly vibrant Tulips, in every shade imaginable. You may like these flowers so much, you may wish to decorate your self storage Seattle with them! Do note that if you do so, you will need to check up on them regularly. They require special care, after all.

    Sail to Victoria

    One of the best places to have fun in spring is on a boat!

    Moving on, the best way to soak up all the sunshine the spring brings is to take a trip across the water! In downtown Seattle, you can embark on a cruise that will take you straight into Victoria’s Inner Harbour. There, you can explore the BC’s capital at your leisure, shopping around Johnson Street, visit the Royal BC Museum, or even take a stroll through the Butchart Gardens. As an added benefit, you can always say that you’ve gone to another country!

    Visit the Discovery Park

    But if your tastes lie more in walking around great sceneries, Discovery Park is where all the fun’s at. With numerous hiking trails and an expansive stretch of coastline, your time will slowly melt away. If you can, try to arrive at the West Point Lighthouse at sundown, where you will be able to bask in the glory of the Sound. It is an amazing sight to behold, one worth the trip. But the trip is a fun adventure in and of its own, as well.

    Check the Mariners out

    Perhaps you are a sports fan? If so, you can get your daily “fix” with the Seattle Mariners at the T-Mobile Park. Enjoy a couple of hours of excitement with a fresh hot dog, peanuts, and beer while cheering for the local team. It is a great way to really get into the spirit of Seattle after your local movers Seattle bring in your belongings. The Mariners always put up a great show and you will not be lacking in excitement and thrills, that’s for sure.

    Enjoy springtime in Seattle – Walk on the Waterfront

    After an enjoyable game, why not take a walk at the Waterfront Park? Or maybe treat yourself to some local seafood at the Elliott’s Oyster House? The views are amazing all along the Alaskan Way, all the way to the Seattle Great Wheel, as well. It is a literal treasure trove of great feelings. Try it out, you will definitely not be disappointed!

    Take a stroll in one of the gardens

    Seattle’s gardens will leave you in awe.

    Another great place to take a leisurely stroll is one of the awesome Seattle Gardens. The spring is the season where the flowers are in full bloom and it is always supremely relaxing to simply stop and smell them. There are numerous gardens all across Seattle but the Woodland Park Rose Garden and Queen Anne’s Parsons Gardens are the outliers. The latter is considered to be a “secret garden” of sorts, as it is well off the beaten path. But it is really worth your while to visit, and it might make you feel like a true insider. We cannot recommend it enough, to be honest.

    Enjoy a cold craft beer or two to enjoy springtime in Seattle

    After all these activities, you might simply want to sit down, relax, and enjoy a cold beer. Luckily for you, there is no shortage of brews to taste in Seattle. There are numerous small breweries, taprooms, and other places which serve craft beer. Each one unique and flavorful. But if we had to select a few, we would go for Cloudburst, Seattle Beer Company, and Pike Brewing. The last one is obviously our favorite!

    Give the Seattle Aquarium a tour

    Lastly, you simply can’t enjoy springtime in Seattle to its fullest without a visit to the Seattle Aquarium. The underwater exhibits that are on display in the spring will draw happy smiles from all who gaze upon them. The seals are particularly fun to watch as they splash about and stroke the starfish. Additionally, it is a great educational experience and you will leave the Aquarium with a lot more knowledge (and appreciation) of the water around us and its inhabitants. It is great fun for the entire family and is 100% safe for children. Most of the exhibits are above you, which makes the viewing much more enjoyable. If you are new to Seattle, definitely give the Aquarium a go, you will definitely not regret it!
