Frequently Asked Moving Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I choose a moving company?

The best way to choose a mover is to get referrals from friends, family members, co-workers and anyone else you know who has moved recently.  It is also important to choose a company based upon the services that you desire for your relocation.

What are the advantages of using a professional mover?

When you are undergoing a relocation, it is important to ensure that all of your belongings are accounted for, properly packaged and properly transported.  All of our movers at Bekins Northwest undergo extensive training to learn and employ the proper techniques for moving all of your belongings.

How much does it cost?

There is no finite answer on the estimated cost of your relocation.  Many prices for relocations are determined by the weight of your shipment.  However, price also varies based upon additional services that you may require for your relocation.

When is the best time to move?

Moving companies are their busiest during the summer months.  From May 15 – September 15, professional moving companies will have continuous, back-to-back relocations.  Moving in the off-season is often a good choice if you have flexibility with your move.

What if my home isn’t ready yet? Can I store my items?

Bekins Northwest offers both short-term and long-term storage options for residential and commercial belongings.  It is important that you choose a facility with fire- and theft-protection systems, as well as a warehouse that is climate-controlled.
