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.

    As a leading, professional  moving and storage company, we stock cartons of just about every shape and size imaginable in addition to the industry standard types of moving boxes and shipping crates Seattle residents typically require

    • 1.5 cubic ft
    • 3.0 cubic ft
    • 4.5 cubic ft
    • Dish pack
    • Wardrobe moving boxes

    For your convenience, let’s take a closer look at what you should consider using these standard sizes.

    1.5 cubic ft moving boxes Seattle

    This is one of the smallest moving boxes Seattle customers typically need. While pretty little by comparison to other options, they play a vital role in packing correctly and protecting your items. Given their size, they are perfect for office moving WA and, in particular, for storing smaller but resilient and heavier items such as books.

    3.0 cubic ft moving boxes

    The 3.0 cubic ft is one of our mid-sized moving boxes and. With the 3.0 cubic ft of space, you can pack many different things. Still, we would not suggest packing items in this type of moving boxes as they can become very heavy. These are perfect for storing items that are large with regards to space needed but are not necessarily very heavy. An example would be children’s toys, individual dishes, or larger bowls. Obviously, in the case that you are going to be placing fragile items in this type of moving boxes or any other for your interstate moves from/to Washington, you should make sure to use the correct size and the proper amount of cushioning.

    4.5 cubic ft moving boxes

    When it comes to packing and transporting large bulky items that require a lot of space but are not overly heavy or delicate, one of the largest moving boxes, the 4.5 cubic ft. moving boxes is perfect for the task  These are used primarily for transporting large items of moderate weight. Items such as blankets, sheets, pillows that do not require shipping crates Seattle moves to employ for large items susceptible to damage If you are about to start packing for your residential move yourself rather than hiring Bellevue movers, you should make sure to invest in a sufficient supply of 4.5 cubic ft moving boxes Seattle moves typically require.

    Dish pack

    Now, in the event where you have a large number of dishes, fine china, and kitchenware that you want to make sure survive the move without any damage, it’s highly suggested you consider packing them in our dish pack cartons. This is one of the safest ways to protect your fragile kitchen items during a move. Fully packed dish packs tend to be quite heavy. Therefore, you should be extra careful when moving day comes. Make sure to carry them with someone’s help to be sure that they arrive in your new home in perfect condition while protecting your back.

    Obtaining wardrobe moving boxes

    For packing your hanging clothes, you should invest in wardrobe moving boxes. As the name suggests, these moving boxes are specially designed for safely and efficiently packing your items of clothing. Each carton comes equipped with a metal bar onto which you will be able to hang your clothing on their own hangers. Wardrobe boxes can handle a large volume of clothing, protecting it from the elements and even preserving the appearance of previously ironed garments.

    For most people, getting settled into our new home as quickly as possible following a do-it-yourself move or after using Edmonds movers is a high priority. Using wardrobe boxes for packing and transporting your clothing allows for an efficient unpacking process – simply transfer the hanging garments directly from the wardrobe box to the new closet!

    Professionals can help you move efficiently and within budget limits.

    While both options are available to you, we would highly suggest relocating within or out of the State of Washington with help from professional movers. While many people are physically able to move by themselves, ourselves, fact remains that hiring a professional and reliable moving company to help you relocate represents an investment in safety, efficiency, and peace of mind. 

    In fact, if you do not have experience in making a move, you could potentially find yourself overwhelmed and unable to complete the move without assistance. While a do-it-yourself move may seem to be a more cost-effective route, once you consider the rental of trucks and equipment plus retail costs for boxes and moving supplies, the overall move cost could be the same or higher than hiring a leading moving company that will help you to prepare well and execute your move on time and on budget.

    Hiring professional movers such as Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage can provide you with a trouble-free relocation process. As our services are offered on an a-la-carte basis, you only choose the services you need, your expenses will be kept to a bare minimum. We are certain that you will benefit from having quality movers by your side through your relocation process.
