||Moving Tips & Guides|
Look into Company Policies |
Familiarize yourself with company policies. Not all companies have the same rules and policies – one company may be equipped to move antiques, while another may not. Also make sure that you are familiar with each individual aspect of your move ahead of time. It will save you headaches later on down the road.
When is the Best Time to Hire a ... |
Typically, moving season is between May and September (during the summer when school-aged children are on break) so moves booked and performed during this time are generally more costly. You may also have trouble finding a mover unless you book well in advance. If you can, try to move during an “off” season, like the winter, to avoid price hikes.
Green Moving Tips |
The environment should always be at the back of our minds, even when undergoing major life changes like moving to a new home. Everything you do during the moving process can have an impact on the environment, even packing. Thinking about the environment when you move helps you stay environmentally sound by recycling and reusing packing materials and doing your move the green way.

Figuring Out the Cost of an ... |
Every move is unique because of the different circumstances that often compose the moving process. However, when you are getting prepared to move and planning for your upcoming relocation, you may be curious about the cost of an average move, as knowing this can better help you shape your moving budget and know just how much money you need to allocate for the move.

Full House Movers Inc
|This company is straight up amazing!! I have used several moving companies and this is by far the best. The team helped get stuff out of two storage units, take a part furniture that was too big to fit through the doors, and after over 8 hours of work everyone on the crew were incredibly nice and helpful. We had a team of 4 and each one of them asked if there was anything at all they could help with before leaving. Oh....and nothing was broken either! Best moving company I have ever used|

Full House Movers Inc
|This is truly the worst experience I've ever had!! So they quoted us about $2200 to move, showed up and wanted an extra $1200!!!! I hadn't accumulated anything extra in the week or 2 since talking to them, but no way was I going to pay 1200! I had to move that day so I threw away and gave away a bunch of our stuff and STILL ended up paying $2600+. Unbelievable. Then to top it all off, they just left our stuff in the truck and never moved at all for 2 weeks!!! Meanwhile we are calling about our stuff, dispatch never knows where they are, when they are coming or anything useful. Now we just get voicemail. We can't reach the drivers, for all we know they took off with our stuff and we'll never see it again! Last i heard it had been 2 weeks and they still hadn't even started driving with our stuff yet. Blamed it on the weather. ??%0d%0aWe are out even more money because we couldn't stay in our new house yet without any sort of clothes, furniture, dishes, baby stuff, etc. We had just the essentials for a week to week and a half (a reasonable amount of time for the transition), and a very short term place to stay, just enough time for them to arrive with the stuff. My husband had to delay starting his new job because his work clothes and tools are on the truck which NEVER EVEN LEFT for 2 whole weeks!! I mean seriously, WTF??? Not to mention we had to extend our stay (more money), eat out because we have nothing to cook with (more money), find somewhere to launder our clothes (more money), get a few things for the baby, it's just positively unreal. Edited to add: I just found out they used to go by the name Triple 7 Movers in Nevada, then went to California and went by the name Full house movers, then moved to Washington but kept the name. They've had countless complaints and were investigated by the BBB, then they shut down. Only to pop up elsewhere....|

|They lost all of my belongings|
Lincoln Moving & Storage Co
|They lost all my belongings I had stored with them. I spent two days gathering receipts and proof of what was stored with them to fill out a claim. A month later, they came back to me with a fraction of the value I had stored with them. They even accused me of lying about items on the claim and decided to give me zero value for them. They're not even willing to reimburse me on the storage costs so I basically paid them to lose my belongings. I'm currently in the process of looking for a lawyer since they seem to not be willing to update their offer. If you're looking for storage in Seattle, use anyone but this company! Also, I used Closetbox to pick up my stuff and store it with them so if you use Closetbox make sure they are not storing with Lincoln Moving |

Moving to Washington?
Tucked in the Pacific Northwest region of United States, Washington State with its rich, varied culture and climate is the only state that has been named after a U.S. president. Due to its huge tracts of forested lands that have contributed both to the timber industry and the ecosystem alike, the state has been nicknamed the “Evergreen State.”
Puget Sound - the seat of Washington's commercial and industrial development – is comprised of navigable bays over which cities such as Seattle, Tacoma, and Everett are situated. Seattle and Everett have two firsts to their credit - the former is famous for the first revolving restaurant while the latter is the site for the world's largest building, Boeing's final assembly plant.
Native Americans inhabited Washington State long before the arrival of the Europeans, whose livelihood consisted of hunting, salmon fishing, food gathering and some forms of agriculture. These indigenous tribes were famous for their totem poles, which are sculptures carved from large Red Cedar trees. Makah, another indigenous tribe is famous for their whaling skills in their canoes.
