Local Move Testimonials

“I am writing to commend the gentlemen from Hansen Bros. who moved me at Chateau Pacific in Lynnwood, WA from from my apartment to a temporary apartment and then back again so that my original apartment could be painted.  Both men were courteous and helpful during this traumatic time for me.  I am now resettled into my apartment and it is like brand new.  Thank you for making this move such a positive experience – I really appreciate it!” ~ Margaret (Lynnwood, WA)

 “Thank you for making our recent move from Winthrop, WA to Mazama, WA the most pleasant and professional experience we have had in three moves in the past 10 years!  Hansen Bros. office and sales staff and, in particlar, the three men assigned to our move made it the easiest and least stressful experience we have ever had.  Again, thank you.  Our expectations were very low when we started out and soared as your company went above and beyond what we should have expected in the first place.” ~ Gay and Mary Ann (Mazama, WA)


Excellant Service. The crew was great.

Until my experience with Hansen Bros., I associate moves with the greatest possible level of anxiety. Your organization changed that for me. Although your excellent reputation had been conveyed to me by friends, I was not prepared for the uniquely refreshing experience that I encountered. I take great pleasure in singing the praises of a company that literally redefines moving.” ~ Bill (Seattle, WA)

“We were so pleased with the job everyone at Hansen Bros. did for us! …our sales rep, and his professionalism and excellent communication skills were really appreciated. The gentlemen who packed and moved our possessions…were fast and very considerate. Not having used professional movers before, we didn’t know what to expect. This experience was terrific. I can assure you if we need moving services again, or we know of anyone who does, Hansen Bros. will be our choice!” ~ Don & Connie (Mount Vernon, WA)

“We could not have been more pleased with the excellent job…when moving our personal belongings to our new home. Professionalism was apparent throughout the job.

“Careful planning paid off handsomely…initial step was the packing…which went without a hitch. Your crew…I cannot emphasize how careful they were with my antique and rather expensive furniture,…they were cheerful and obliging to the very last minute, saying repeatedly, “We want you to be happy and satisfied.” Moving a household, after 34 years in the same place, is fraught with frustration and takes a long time to recover from, but it has been made easier through the Hansen movers…for which I am most grateful.” ~ Rosemary (Seattle, WA)

Paula's estimate was accurate and she was very supportive while I was in panic mode. The movers did more than we expected (brought extra things to dump). I had been overly stressed, because they handled everything efficiently and nothing even broke--with I'd used Hansen myself in the past. I would recommend Hansen Bros. for sure.

Commercial Move Testimonials

“Our recent Seattle office move was not the most organized event as you know, you rearranged your schedule a few times to accommodate our changes. I just wanted to write to tell you how much I appreciate your team and what you guys made happen for us last weekend. We got the OK to move our warehouse at approximately 1:30 on Friday (Memorial Day weekend) and we had 4 trucks in our parking lot by 2:00pm. That is service!! The guys were extremely professional and did a great job managing it all and communicated with me every step of the way. Thank you for coming in on your weekend to make sure we were all doing OK. Please pass along this compliment so they know how much I appreciate the professional job they did for us. Thank you so much for everything.” ~ Comcast – xfinity
