  • 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.

We believe excellent customer service involves offering plenty of options in everything we do. With this in mind, Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage proudly offers an alternative to our professional in-person estimate appointments. By harnessing the wonders of modern technology, our 130-year old company can provide virtual estimate appointments upon request. Please be sure to ask your relocation consultant if you’re interested in a virtual estimate appointment.

The virtual estimate appointment is both efficient and effective. You will simply need the following:

  • A charged smartphone or tablet (either Android or Apple) with a stable internet connection (can be cellular or WiFi)
  • Access and Passwords to an active Google Play account (for Android) or an App Store Account (for Apple)

What is a “Virtual Estimate Appointment” and how does it compare to an In-Home Estimate Appointment?

  • In-Home Estimate Appointments involve one of our professional relocation consultants visiting your home or office to document the belongings you plan to relocate and access for our trucks. They can also answer any questions or answer any special requests that you might have.
  • Virtual Estimate Appointments involve one of our relocation consultants connecting with you virtually over the Internet via a special app, saving you the time and effort of hosting them in-person. You can then simply walk through your residence or office, showing the items you want to relocate and how our trucks will best access your location.

Both options accomplish the same objective of gathering the information necessary to create an accurate moving cost estimate. The difference is that the Virtual Estimate Appointment is more effective and less time-consuming. And, just like an In-Home Estimate, your Virtual Estimate is free and carries no obligation!

During the Virtual Estimate Appointment, your consultant can also snapshot the various spaces while you do the walkthrough with notes so that, on moving day, our crew is prepared to meet your specific needs.

This review is way overdue. I can't say enough nice things about Hansen Bros. Moving. Last summer, I had to move my husband's ex-wife from W Seattle to Iowa... yes, there's a long story that goes with that. Every step of the way, from the estimate, to the crew picking up all the boxes and furniture to the Hansen Bros driver who delivered everything in excellent condition, was flawless. Thank you for making a challenging task easier!
