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.

    Reasons You Want to Hire Professional Packers and Movers

    People often hesitate at the idea of hiring professional packers and movers. Moving is typically approached as a do-it-yourself task, leaving you responsible for everything from packing to driving the moving truck. However, there is a lot more that goes into a successful, hassle-free move than meets the eye.

    Why Professional Packers and Movers are Your Best Moving-Day Option

    Whether you have years of experience moving or it’s your first time, relocation can be a daunting task that spans several days. It takes a careful, organized approach to ensure that you don’t miss a single step – or item.

    Handing the reigns over to professional packers and movers frees you up from the most time-consuming and physical portions of moving, allowing you to focus on getting settled in a new home. Plus, it’s hard to ignore the benefits of hiring a team of experts:

    I had used Hansen Bros in a move many years ago and had been happy. So seeing you recommended again by my new community was pleasing. And you more than lived up to my expectations. Your new moving services as also more than worth it! Thanks again!

    • Your belongings are safe during packing and transit. Haphazardly throwing items in a box and failing to secure them in the moving truck increases the likelihood of damaged and lost belongings. Professionals come prepared on moving day with proper equipment & packing materials, and know how to best pack, arrange and secure items so they’re protected during transit. Additionally, most movers give you the option to purchase insurance, which covers the cost of any damaged belongings.
    • Movers can store items if necessary. Inclement weather, last-minute home repairs and inspections are just a few things that can delay move in. And if any of these unexpected events arise, you don’t want to get stuck with a truck full of belongings. Professional moving companies often have storage facilities available in the area, securing your belongings for an extra day or two until you’re ready to move in.
    • Professional packers and movers offer a variety of transportation options. Moving doesn’t always involve a few boxes and a moving truck. Cars, motorcycles and bulky furniture need to make the journey, too. Look for a moving provider that can accommodate these items. Worried about an aquarium breaking in the moving van? Movers can ship directly to your home. Have an extra car you can’t drive? Professional movers will load and deliver your car right to your driveway.
