Long distance Seattle, Washington moving companies

When you are seeking a mover to support your long distance move to or from Seattle, Three Men and a Truck suggests that you review the advice offered by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (called FMCSA):

  1. Limit your search to companies that register with FMCSA. Registration is required and can be validated by the mover’s DOT number. You can also check for the company on the FMCSA site, where you will be able to review safety data and any customer complaints.
  2. Always get a written estimate based on a visual inspection of the goods you are shipping. It’s a great idea to compare bids from several movers to understand the price range for your move.
  3. Don’t automatically take the lowest offer. Consider the reliability of the company and the service level. The mover you choose has a lot of responsibility, so choosing well is as crucial as getting the best price.

Local movers in Seattle, Washington

Local moving companies in Seattle, Washington are not regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, although they should be registered with the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission. It’s the consumer’s responsibility to determine that the mover has adequate insurance, particularly workers’ compensation coverage.

It’s always great if someone you trust recommends a moving company to you when planning a move, but don’t assume they have the right coverage and an active business license. It’s safer to ask for documentation. Always get a written estimate and ensure that your household goods are protected by the mover’s liability insurance as well.

How much will a move to or from Seattle, Washington cost?

Local moves are priced on an hourly basis and can often be completed for under $1,000, although large homes will cost more. The mover will offer an estimate based on how much time they need to do the work, and the bid will specify the number of movers they will use for the job.

Long distance relocation averages over $4,000 but can be much higher if the residence is sizable and the distance is significant. Moving companies base the estimate on weight and mileage and add charges for ancillary services and logistics.
