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.

    Are you surprised by the good weather lately? Time is flying by. We can’t believe that the spring is already here either. It’s time we freshen up our homes. Spring cleaning is crucial for everyone, but especially for those prone to allergies. And it’s much more necessary in this pandemic era. If you want to get rid of all the dirt and germs in your house, just follow our springtime cleaning tips, and your house will be spotless in no time.

    Top 10 springtime cleaning tips

    Are you wondering what the most effective way to approach your spring cleaning process is? With these few tips, this year’s spring cleaning can go a little bit easier. If you’re planning on moving out to the countryside during the summer, feel free to call moving companies Everett WA to help you out.

    Make your annual spring cleaning easier with these few springtime cleaning tips.

    1. Focus on one area at a time

    Deep cleaning your home is best done one room at a time so you don’t miss any spots. It’s helpful to create cleaning checklists for each room so that you can stay on top of your cleaning duties. Focus on the areas that have been largely ignored during the winter months first.

    2. Organize your workspace first

    Clutter removal takes up a big chunk of your time. Thus, we suggest that you use our four-step strategy for this. Develop and implement action plans to deal with the issues you’ve identified and the clutter they’ve caused. Depending on how organized you are, sorting your belongings into four categories can be helpful during your spring-cleaning process. Have one pile for trash, another for donations, and the last two for what you’re going to keep. One should be the things staying with you and the other pile for storage. It doesn’t matter if you decide to donate the clutter to a charity or hold an estate sale in your neighborhood, you should get rid of it as soon as possible. With our office movers Seattle, you can rest easy knowing that we’ll handle the heavy lifting for you.

    3. Always begin at the top and work your way down

    It’s important to start at the top and work your way down when spring cleaning your house. As a result, you won’t have to dust or clean your space again. This will save you both time and effort! When cleaning your ceilings and ceiling fans, use an extension hose if you have one. So that you can get into every nook and crack and get rid of cobwebs and dust. After that, vacuum up all of the dust and debris from your floor surfaces before dusting everything else. It’ll save you a lot of time in the long run.

    4. Thoroughly clean your walls and windows

    Cleaning the walls and windows is less common than cleaning the floors. The floor and other surfaces aren’t covered in all the dust that’s floating around. In fact, some particles of dust never seem to settle. When it comes to cleaning walls and blinds, all you need is a damp cloth (starting from the top). Don’t forget to remove and wash your exterior window screens as well. We don’t recommend using chemical cleaners to clean the windows. Instead, use a steamer, if you have one, or a natural solution. If you’re planning to move soon, pay particular attention to the windows and walls. You can put your trust in our Washington movers for the actual moving and packing.

    5. Involve your family members

    Assign some of your family members to help you with your spring cleaning. This could also be a great bonding time. Even your little toddler can help pick something up. Make sure to assign age-appropriate responsibilities to ensure that everyone feels included but no one is overwhelmed. Split the tasks evenly. Consider putting on some music while you all clean. Or you can make it into a game and have some household reward as an incentive to get the job done faster and more efficiently.

    6. Don’t forget about your backyard!

    Once you declutter your household, take out all of your winter clothing and clean the house, it’s time to clean up the backyard. That’s right. It often happens to me that when I have just sat down to take a break after cleaning the whole house, I take a look at my backyard and sigh. Nobody liked looking at overgrown bushes and dirty pavements. As soon as the weather allows you, clean up that yard. If you don’t have much space in your house, feel free to call Seattle storage and rent out a unit. In addition, bring out your spring decorations to give your home a new look.

    5. Try to use some alternatives for heavy chemical products

    We highly suggest avoiding very harsh and abrasive cleaning products as it isn’t good to inhale them as often. However, if you want to use up some of your products, you can. Just make sure you’re wearing gloves. And don’t use those cleaning products as often after they do the job for the big spring clean. You can even mix up your cleaning solution with a little bit of lemon juice and baking soda. And this is a much better option. Plus, it works great!

    6. Make it your goal to clean something in the house every day

    This is one of our best springtime cleaning tips. You should try your best to make dusting up a daily habit if you can. Having a big spring clean is an excellent opportunity to make it your goal to upkeep your house more regularly. If you can spend at least 15 minutes a day completing a cleaning task, your home will be kept in perfect condition.
