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.

The good thing is that there are many reputable companies on the market at the moment.

    And if you aren’t sure what to look for, we’ll gladly help you out. For starters, you need to ensure that the company you choose offers all the moving assistance options that you will require. That means that you might need to find movers who offer both packing services and premier Seattle storage. Secondly, you ought to find movers who have sufficient experience in the industry. If a company has completed thousands of successful projects, then there’s a good chance your move will be a success too. Finally, you need to ensure that the company you opt for is within your budget. There is no reason to put yourself in debt when you have so many companies to choose from.

    Don’t lose sight of smaller moving tasks that are ahead

    It’s superfluous to say that you should remember to pack your belongings for your move to Issaquah because this is the task no one ever forgets about. But unlike packing, there are many tasks people fail to plan for or they completely forget about. For some of those tasks, you can find appropriate help by looking into our HB move management department. For others, you’ll just have to either do it yourself or enlist the help of a trusted friend or family member. So what are these tasks we are talking about?

    1. Transfer your utilities. Unless you want to sit in the dark after moving to Issaquah WA, transfer your utilities a couple of weeks prior to your moving day.
    2. Inform everyone about your move. Besides family, friends, and your employer, you should also change your mailing address, cancel your subscriptions, and change your address at the bank.
    3. Declutter your home. Whether you like it or not, decluttering should be a mandatory part of your relocation. Don’t get sentimental – it will be good to start fresh and not be weighed down by unusable items.
    4. Organize a yard sale. What a better way to earn some extra money for your relocation than by selling the items you decide not to relocate to the new home?

    Luckily, there’s an easy way to stay on top of things during your move – simply make a moving checklist. Sit down and think of all the things you ought to accomplish before your Issaquah relocation. It will be hard to forget about a task when it’s right there in front of you!

    Think about organizing a farewell party before your move to Issaquah

    Mind you that this isn’t a mandatory part of your relocation. However, if you are having trouble saying goodbye to your loved ones and moving to a new location, you might benefit from organizing a small get-together. You don’t have to throw a lavish going-away party in order for it to be successful. All you have to do is invite your dearest friends, buy some beverages, and order plenty of good food. And voila – you are already on a good path to having an incredible farewell party.

    At the end of the day, residential relocation is hard.

That’s why it’s very important to have the people you love close to you when moving to Issaquah WA. By organizing a goodbye party, you’ll get a perfect opportunity to have everyone you love in the same room so that you can reminisce about all the good times you had. And all the great times that are yet to follow! Because your move is only the beginning!
