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.

    Willie, Nate, Robert C., and Juan were all great. It always felt like they valued our time and possessions. They were cautious, but balanced with moving quickly. We were communicated with extensively. We would recommend your business without reservation.

    How Motorcycle Moving Works

    • Our specially-equipped trucks will pick up your motorcycle from a private residence or commercial location anywhere in the U.S. All interstate motorcycle shipping orders are transported in air-ride trailers that absorb road vibration.
    • Motorcycle shipping ramps can be risky, so we only use lift gates, allowing your motorcycle to stay completely still when moving from the ground to the truck. Your motorcycle will be carefully strapped and padded to ensure maximum safety en route.
    • Every motorcycle move is double-checked before any vehicle movement begins. The final check ensures your motorcycle is ready to make the trip safe and sound.
    • Once at the destination, your motorcycle is carefully unloaded and delivered in perfect condition, exactly the way you left it. No surprises.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Motorcycle Movers

    • What is “door to door” motorcycle shipping?
      With our door to door service, we pick your motorcycle up wherever you’d like and take it to the exact address you specify. Most of our competitors require you to take your motorcycle to their nearest shipping depot (which can be quite far away) and then pick it up at the depot closest to your destination. This can add a great deal of additional time and hassle which is why we go the extra mile for our customers.
    • How long does it take to ship my motorcycle?
      The time it takes for shipping varies on a number of factors but generally speaking, a coast-to-coast move takes between 10 and 14 days. This time can be extended due to unforeseen issues such as poor weather, truck maintenance or excessive traffic.
    • What do I need to do to prepare my motorcycle for shipping?
      To make your motorcycle safe for transport, please empty the gas tank to at least half so fuel is not spilled. It is also good to empty any saddle bags as extra items are not insured during transport.
    • Do I need to carry any special insurance for my motorcycle during its shipping?
      Your motorcycle is insured during shipping for the Blue Book Value at that time. However, you may want to purchase additional insurance if you feel this isn’t sufficient.
    • How much notice do you need before the day of the move?
      The more time you can provide will allow us to find the most inexpensive option for your motorcycle transport. Generally, we need a minimum of seven days but prefer a one-month notice.
    • Can I track my shipment along the way?
      Some of the shipping trucks are equipped with GPS devices which will allow you to track your motorcycle shipment. However, we cannot guarantee that this feature will be available for your shipment.
