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.

Virtual Estimate Appointment

Free Moving Estimate

    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!

    We stored furniture in 4 pods for 6 months. Every thing went smoothly. Several schedule changes were necessary and the accommodated without complaint. Movers were kinda scruffy, but were polite and worked hard and efficiently. Would use again.
