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.

Here are five useful services that Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage offers.

    Relocation services you can always count on

    As you know, the leading service we offer is the physical transportation of items from one place to another. Simply put, our Seattle movers move things from point A to point B! More specifically, however, we offer other helpful relocation services that include:

    • Residential moving – the relocation of household belongings and furniture from one home to the other
    • Commercial moving – the relocation of office contents, equipment, supplies, documents, and other corporate property
    • Specialty moving services – for moving fragile and valuable items such as antiques, sculptures, pianos, artwork, pool tables, etc.

    Residential moving in a manner most convenient for you

    When buying or selling a new home, so much is at stake. During this challenging transition period, the Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage team recognizes the importance of keeping our word and offering the top-quality moving expertise Seattle residents expect without fail. Some highlights of our residential relocation work include:

    • Expertise in moving discerning customers with significant investments in their furnishings and belongings as well as their residence.
    • Timely, accurate, and competitive cost estimates without hidden fees or unnecessary up-front deposits
    • Professional teams of local movers Seattle customers trust that sincerely care about the possessions and property of our customers.

    Commercial moving services more Seattle business count on than any other moving company

Our commercial relocation specialists are used to working in partnership with project managers, purchasing departments, financial directors, staff, company managers, and other involved parties – all to ensure the smooth relocation with minimal business disruption.

    Apartment moving for a smooth and fast relocation

    Living in Seattle and surrounding urban areas is extremely convenient. However, when the time comes to move, those who reside in an apartment and/or condominium highrise buildings have a number of unique factors to address when planning a successful move.

    Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage is a company with over a hundred years’ worth of experience in terms of anticipating challenges before they complicate moving day. We are preferred apartment movers in downtown Seattle and throughout the greater Puget Sound region.

    • An experienced and responsive relocation consultant who will provide a realistic cost estimate and also take the time to work with you to plan out your entire relocation.
    • Proper preparation for moving day – parking permits, barricades, and liability coverage for the highrise building.
    • The appropriate equipment and materials necessary to accelerate the moving process involving elevators and long walking distances.
    • Professional lifting equipment, cranes, and resources in case you need to hoist a piece of furniture through a window or deck.
    • Certificate of Insurance. An assurance of liability coverage for any property damage or injuries during relocation.

    Packing services at your disposal

    There’s no question that the moving process is riddled with tedious activities involving packing and moving objects. And then unpacking these same objects as soon as they reach their final destination. We provide packing and unpacking services in addition to top-quality packing supplies, all to save you as much time and effort as possible while ensuring that all your items arrive at their destination safely.

    Undoubtedly, the benefits of saving time and reducing stress by using full or partial packing expertise are significant.

In the event  you decide to take advantage of our packing services, you can expect us to do the following:
