Local & In-State Moves

A local move is any move that begins and ends within a radius of approximately 55 miles within Washington State.

A move that is over 55 miles is called an intrastate move. All moves over 55 miles within the State of Washington are charged based on mileage and the weight of the shipment.

In order for a moving company to perform a move within the state the mover must be licensed by the Washington Utilities & Transportation Commission. For a move between two different states, the mover needs to be licensed by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

It is important when choosing a mover to verify that the mover is licensed within the state. If your mover is licensed, it will mean that your mover has filed his workman’s compensation, liability, & cargo insurance information with the state authorities.

Pricing

Moving services can be very costly. Regardless of the cost of your move, it is very important to us that you understand what you are paying for. In a normal move, the charges will be broken into 4 different components as follows:

  • Labor
    Labor is the price you are paying for each mover for each hour that work is being done.
  • Travel time
    The time it takes our truck to reach your home at the beginning of the move and the time it takes to return to the garage after the move is completed.
  • Packing materials
    In order to perform your move in a professional manner, specific materials are needed to protect your household goods during handling and transport.
  • Valuation Coverage
    Moving companies are required by law to provide customers with valuation coverage at no additional cost. This type of coverage is based upon weight and will not cover actual value of an item damaged or lost during a move. You can supplement the coverage by purchasing additional coverage.

Testimonials


I've been after my son Edington to respond to you for some time now. However, the younger generation lose the sense of priority on certain issues. Therefore, I take it upon myself to tell you that the shipment of his goods from Seattle to England came off without a hitch and he is extremely pleased with your services. All household goods arrived with nothing broken/damaged or missing. The dood-to-door service went as planned and now his problem is what is he going to do with all these extra things (living space in UK is much smaller than in the USA).

Once again, we salute you for a job well done and thank you for making a difficult move easy.
