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.

    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)

    Until my experience with Hansen Bros., I associate moves with the greatest possible level of anxiety. Your organization changed that for me.

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.

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)

    “I wish to commend your company…for such great service during our move. We lived in our house for 40 years and were moving to a new condo.

    “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)

Brad is a GREAT asset to your moving company!

    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
