Days are getting longer. The temperatures are warming up. It’s a great time of year to get outside and enjoy nature.

Des Moines, Washington has a lot of opportunities for you to enjoy nature. As Des Moines movers, we have enjoyed this area for a long time and we have seen families move to the area and fall in love with it too. One of the best ways to get out and enjoy this summer is to go to the beach – Redondo Beach.

This beach has so much to offer.  Like any beach, this offers swimming and sunbathing on the sand, but it is so much more than that. It also has opportunities for boating and fishing. Take your boat out to fish or utilize the great fishing pier.

If you would rather stroll beside the shore without getting your shoes filled with sand, there is a nice walking path with benches.  You can stroll or sit and soak up the beach atmosphere.  You can make a day out of it by bringing a picnic or visiting one of the restaurants by the shore.

There are a lot of ways to take advantage of this picturesque beach.  Go visit Redondo Beach and relax.  It’s a treasure to Des Moines and is sure to be one of your favorite spots.

Official Moving Company of the Seattle Seahawks Makes a Friendly Super Bowl Bet

Official Moving Company of the Seattle Seahawks Makes a Friendly Super Bowl Bet

Super Bowl Bet

Every day, Bekins Northwest and Olympia Moving & Storage work with agents in the Wheaton/Bekins interstate moving network to provide exceptional moving services to their customers. When it comes to quality and great service, these two companies are always in agreement. Super Bowl XLIX, however, causes a major disagreement.

Bekins Northwest is the official company of the Seattle Seahawks, and their loyalties in this week’s upcoming game are obvious. In fact, Bekins Northwest was the company in charge of moving all of the Seahawks’ equipment to Arizona after the NFC championship. Olympia Moving & Storage is based out of Boston, so their employees will all be rooting for the New England Patriots.

To settle the rivalry, Olympia has challenged Bekins Northwest with a friendly bet in the name of charity. If the New England Patriots lose on Sunday, Olympia will donate $500 to Keaton’s Korral at Give Kids the World Village, a cost-free vacation resort in Florida exclusively for children suffering from life-threatening illnesses and their families. If the Seattle Seahawks lose, Bekins Northwest will make the same donation to Keaton’s Korral. Only one company wins bragging rights, but Keaton’s Korral has a guaranteed win.

Wheaton World Wide Moving | Bekins Van Lines have been strong supporters of Keaton’s Korral at Give Kids the World Village since 2000 and are working to achieve a fundraising goal of $22,000 for the cause. You can help accomplish this goal by visiting their website to make a donation.

Bekins Northwest is excited for a Seahawks win this Sunday!

Seahawks Send Off

Bekins Northwest was honored to once again be a part of the Seattle Seahawks Sendoff this last Sunday, transporting Seahawk Players equipment to the airport where the team was leaving for the “Big Game”.  Our trucks followed the Team in their shuttle busses, in a caravan that went through the streets of Seattle, lined with an overwhelming showing 12th Man team spirit.  As one of our movers, Michael described, “our Bekins trucks were following the Seahawks Equipment Manager in the motorcade.  It was amazing. Upwards of 75,000 people to see our team off!!!  It was just so exciting to be a part of”.

Another Mover, Nacho, said “The feeling was just indescribable! You feel the power of the 12th Man, it’s absolutely amazing.  And, you know, we feel it all of the time when moving the Seahawks equipment – even if it is 3:00 in the morning, raining hard outside… we always see those hardcore 12’s outside the VMAC or the Airport.  There is just nothing like the 12th man spirit!

Bekins Northwest is the Official Mover for the Seattle Seahawks, moving equipment for all away games, and other needs.  Once the team was ready, our crew geared up, and took the Seahawks Equipment down to Arizona for Super Bowl XLIX.  We are always ready to help in any way, because Bekins Northwest is so proud of our Hawks, and being a part of their team!

Bekins Northwest is Taking the Seahawks to the Super Bowl Again!

Bekins Moves the Seahawks

Yesterday, the NFC championship game between the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks kept spectators in suspense until the final seconds.  In the dramatic fourth quarter, the 12th Man rallied behind the Seahawks to help spur them on to victory.

The Seahawks came back from a 16 point deficit with amazing plays and strong teamwork to win in overtime with a score of 28-22.   Seattle celebrates as their beloved Seahawks take their third trip to the Super Bowl.  Congratulations Seahawks on being the first team since 2005 to have back-to-back Super Bowl appearances!

It’s back to work today for the Seahawks and their official mover, Bekins Northwest.  We have been given the distinct privilege of transporting the team’s equipment to Arizona. We were told that in the event of a Seahawks win on Sunday, we would need to have a truck at the loading dock first thing Monday morning.

Our Seattle movers watched the game intently on Sunday and were ready to roll first thing Monday.  We are thrilled with the game’s result and the opportunity to participate in the country’s largest sporting spectacle once again.

Bruce Gates, Seattle Seahawks’ account manager at Bekins Northwest, arranged to have our truck at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center bright and early this morning. Several staff members will travel to the game to ensure that all of the equipment will arrive without any hiccups. They also have the awesome opportunity to attend the big game on February 1 as the Seahawks take on the New England Patriots.

Any prediction on who will win? It’s a little biased if you ask this Seattle moving company.

Bekins Northwest has been the official mover of the Seattle Seahawks for over 12 years and we are excited to take them to the Super Bowl for the second time. Let’s bring home the Lombardi Trophy again.

Go Hawks!

Top 5 Tips to Help You Tackle Your Move

Top 5 Tips to Help You Tackle Your Move

5 Moving Tips

Moving can be an overwhelming task.

If you don’t have a plan of attack, it can seem impossible.

Tacoma Residential Movers, Bekins Northwest, have over 110 years of experience. We have been your residential movers in Tacoma since 1903 and have gained some tips and tricks over the years.

Here are our top 5 tips to help you conquer your move:

  • Timing Is Everything– The busy season is May to September, so avoid these months if possible. If not, then schedule your move as soon as possible.
  • Be Strategic– Packing is one of the hardest parts of the move. Bekins Northwest offers packing services, but if you would rather pack items yourself, then have a plan. Know which items you can’t pack such gasoline, alcohol, flammable liquids, etc. Pack and label boxes based on the room and the priority. Clearly mark which boxes you are taking with you.
  • Weed Out Extras– While you are packing, make a pile of items you want to get rid of. You can schedule a pickup with the Salvation Army if you are unable to take it to a drop off location.
  • Keep Essentials Separate– When you are packing up items, put aside any essentials that you will need that first day and pack them in their own box. Take it with you unless you don’t have any room in your car.
  • Make The Switch– Open your bank account in your new town so that you will have access to your money. Call the utility companies to start your services and change your address with the post office to ensure you don’t miss any mail. Check out our moving Updater to save time and money organizing and completing move related tasks.

The best way to keep from getting overwhelmed during your move is to be plan ahead. These five tips will help you stay organized and get prepared for the move ahead. The more prepared you are, the more you get to enjoy the opportunity that lies ahead.

Tips that Will Make Moving Your Business to Eastern Washington Simple

Tips that Will Make Moving Your Business to Eastern Washington Simple

Moving in Eastern Washington

Whether you run a regional office branch or a small family business, moving your company across state lines is challenging without proper planning. Business moves are more complex than household moves because you have high volumes of expensive equipment to transfer and clients to notify. The first step you should take before moving to Eastern Washington is contacting a reputable moving company. To make the moving process even simpler, the Spokane commercial movers at Bekins Northwest suggest that you:

  • Make a Floor Plan

Your move will be chaos if you don’t inform your employees and commercial movers in Spokane of where everything should go. Schedule some time several weeks (or months!) in advance to make a floor plan, and ask for employee feedback.

  • Coordinate with Your Building

Coordinate with your new building to make sure your movers will have space for parking and elevator room on moving day.

  • Change Your Address

Change your address with the post office and interested parties such as banks, suppliers and utility companies. Make sure your clients are informed of your new address, and don’t forget to update your website!

  • Notify Your Clients

If your move is taking place during business hours, let your clients know ahead out of courtesy.

  • Have a Backup Plan

Loss of data or computer problems can set you back days or weeks. Make sure you have all of your data backed up, plenty of installation CDs ready and the assistance of a tech expert who can help in an emergency.

Moving to Spokane, the second largest city in the state of Washington will give your business plenty of room to grow. Don’t delay, and contact our qualified commercial Spokane movers now to begin!

Gearing Up for a Winter Move in Tacoma

Gearing Up for a Winter Move in Tacoma

Tacoma Winter

Planning even just a local relocation in Tacoma can be a large task – especially in the winter months.  As the cold weather and your moving date approach, keep in mind a few of these tips for moving in cold weather from our Tacoma local movers.

Keep your gear readily available.  When packing, it is easy to bury the winter weather clothes deep in boxes, but it is best to keep a clearly marked, easily accessible box of warm clothing and blankets packed for moving day.

Plan ahead.  Keep in mind that moving in cold weather can increase the time it may take to complete your move.  Keep on track by having your belongings packed up and boxes clearly labeled before the movers arrive at your home.

Protect your home.  Winter weather can bring along with it ice, slush and snow – all which will cause a mess and potentially even damage to your home.  Protect floors, doorways and entranceways in both homes to prevent any unnecessary damage.

Stay warm.  Have warm beverages and take breaks during your move.  It may not seem like it, but keeping warm will actually help your move to move much more quickly and smoothly.  Your movers will appreciate the kind gesture, and their appreciation will show.

Are you ready to get started with our Tacoma moving company?  Give us a call or fill out our online quote form to receive your free moving estimate today! Bekins Northwest looks forward to hearing from you.
