I had a very positive experience with Bekins

I had a very positive experience with Bekins. My household items arrived sooner than expected, and the gentlemen who unloaded were very pleasant and worked hard. Packing was a little more stressful, because it happened quickly and I had to pay close attention. The only thing I have not found is the lid to a pot, and otherwise, as far as I can tell, everything arrived OK. The car also arrived a little sooner than expected. It was actually perfect timing. Nothing was damaged in transit.

Love working with them

Working with pre- move stuff, Jim Dessin and Julie Betts have been more than awesome to work with. Jim came and gave us an estimate, Julie has been so helpful with my many pre -move questions. Love working with them and can't wait to use Bekins for our upcoming move.

Move from Florida to Montana

John Gish is the nicest person you will ever work with! He handled our move from Florida to Montana at a price well below his competitors. Not one single item damaged. He was in constant contact with us and handled all the details! We have used him before and we will continue to use him and refer him to others. Thanks, John!

Moving Items from Storage

John Warner and his team did an absolutely excellent job in moving my storage from Public Storage to my home in West Seattle. They really went above and beyond in setting up the new dwelling to make it as functional as possible! Very efficient! I am going to highly recommend this group to our Keller Williams office in West Seattle and Downtown Seattle! Thank you again!

Move from Alabama to Alaska

John Gish did a fantastic job of tailoring our move and working within our budjet. We were able to bring everything we wanted to from Alabama to Alaska. Our car received some damage in transit, and they took care of that also. Highly recommend John Gish and Bekins Northwest!

A three thousand mile move

This was the most amazing moving experience due to the high degree of professionalism, kindness and support in a three thousand mile move and total life change. The logistics of the move were completely taken care by John Gish and his staff and we are deeply grateful. This is the only company to use in our opinion. A Big Thank you to all at Bekins.

Cross Country Move

I just relocated from Missouri to the Northwest and used Bekins NW's services. John Gish and his team did an amazing job with scheduling, packing, transporting and storing of my household items insuring top notch care. Relocating several times...this move was definitely one of the easiest moves I've encountered. John goes the extra mile in every aspect of his business, and I will be happy to recommend his services to anyone!

The crew was OUTSTANDING

To say the least moving is a stressfull thing to do. John Gish was so patient, helpful and accomodating during a difficult time. The crew was OUTSTANDING. Everyone of the five movers went above and beyond what anyone would expect. They did a house and apartment in one day and did it with care and a sense of humor. It was honestly a pleasure to be around them. They made it so much easier. Would not hesitate to recommend BEKINS to anyone who is relocating two blocks or two thousand miles. Thank you.

Moved from Hillsboro, Oregon to Olympia

We just moved from Hillsboro, Oregon to Olympia and it was a great experience! The packers were very friendly and accommodating . They worked nonstop and we actually moved early. They were on time and so efficient that the unloading went smoothly. I particularly liked that I had two guys with me throughout the move which was the packing, loading, and unloading. I would recommend this company highly!!!

Move from Los Alamos, NM to Olympia, WA

Just completed a move from Los Alamos, NM to Olympia, WA. Could not have been happier with the service provided by Bekins. Working with Mr. John Gish to arrange the move was a pleasure. The packers, a husband (Eppie), wife, and daughter team from Albuquerque arrived exactly as scheduled on 1/6/13 and did a terrific job packing our possessions in less than half the time anticipated. The driver (Moisses) and his co-driver (Kat) also arrived exactly as scheduled 1/8/14. Not only was I impressed with Moisses'ss trailer backing skills, but also with the four man loading crew from Albuquerque, All our possessions were wrapped and loaded quickly, safely and professionally. Moisses ran a tight ship and the trailer was packed beautifully. The truck with Moisses and Kat at the wheel arrived exactly as scheduled in Olympia just four days later and the unloading crew also did an outstanding job off-loading our possessions and re-assembling our furniture in various locations on site. The entire move was accomplished successfully, exactly as scheduled, and at less than the estimated cost. My wife and I were very happy with the entire Bekins crew. If we have need to move again, I will have Bekins, and John Gish, at the very top of my list.

Awesome! I had a very complicated move, and everyone I worked with were professional, helpful, and just wonderful. My move came under the price quoted, and the movers worked hard without any complaints. I recommend to everyone!

Rockstar Retirement Move

Roger, our driver/mover was a rockstar! He is professional, courteous, conscientious and personable. Your Los Angeles based team of Raymon and Daniel to your Seattle based team of Jeremy and Tim were outstanding gentlemen....worked very hard and they made our move less stressful.

Shoutout to Julie

Julie Betts, has been an exceptional help, and Bekins should clone her. She is a complete professional, caring and helpful at a very stressful time in anyone's life. Moving is always stressful, but Julie made it bearable. She helped me retain my sanity when everything seemed to be falling apart. Thank you, Julie.

My initial contact was through Jon Warner - he responded quickly, professionally, and stayed on top of this transaction. Loved working with him! Dave, from Federal Way, showed up on time to provide an estimate. It was delightful to work with. The estimate was spot on to the final bill. About the actual move - Mark was in charge of the group of four and did a fantastic job. These guys had some really difficult things to move including a hot tub, piano, pool table, massage chair, and treadmill. I was impressed how easily they managed each of these items. When they move the treadmill they left some black marks on our hardwood floor. One of the movers immediately went back in the house when I told them and worked on removing the black marks until they were gone. I was dumbfounded. I profusely thanked him for doing it and he told me that it was their responsibility and that they have integrity to take care of any damage they cause. I don't believe I've ever had movers have do that before. Going forward, Bekins will be the only company I call!

Very Proud of the Service You Provided!

The entire experience with Bekins was excellent in every respect. Our first encounter was with Mark Simonds, General Manager of your Yakima, Wa. facility. He handled the pricing, provided shipping boxes and packing material. Mark also provided two employees to handle packing of high value items. He was a professional in every respect and immediately re-acted to any of our questions or comments. The driver, Mr. R. Payne was also very professional and quite honestly the best we have ever worked with. During my professional career at Merrill Lynch I was involved in 11 relocations with Allied Van Lines and others and none of those ever came close to the services provided by Mr. Payne. I would give him the very highest rating possible. Our delivery date was originally scheduled for 12/6/2016 but at the last moment it had to be changed to 12/7/2016. Mr. Payne agreed to move the date without any hassle whatsoever. This was extremely helpful to us! You folks should be very proud of the service you provided! You folks moved an entire household from Cle Elum, Wa. to Goodyear, Arizona which was some 1500 miles with lots of very expensive and fragile items. Not one single item was damaged or broken. Give credit to your packers, the individuals packing the truck and of course the driver. We greatly appreciate the excellent services you provided and will recommend you to others without any reservations whatsoever. Thank you ever so much for a job well done!

Best Move in 33 Years!

Best Move in 30 Years!

I want to let you know that I have been working on corporate relocations for over 30 years and the move staff Bruce Gates put together this past weekend was by far the best I ever worked with. As I am a prior service SGM my standards are very high. My thanks to Bruce and his very professional team for a job well done... The team with Rick running it was by far the best in every way. On time. Polite. Everyone knew their job. Made my job simple.

Enjoyed the Whole Experience

I had a great experience with Bekins Northwest!

Starting off, Ralph Eronemo was a professional and personable representative of your company.  He came to talk with me right away explaining the process and answering all my questions. He was able to arrange the movers to come to meet my schedule.

The movers were here on the day and time as promised and what nice men!  They even put up with me practicing my bad Spanish on them 🙂  They took great care to pad doorways, cover the walkway to the front door and carefully wrapped and padded all my furniture.  They worked carefully yet efficiently.

They arrived at my new home at the time promised and again worked carefully and efficiently.  They were very professional and personable asking questions if they were unsure of anything and giving ideas for placement of some pieces.

I dreaded this whole ordeal of finding a moving company but ended up enjoying the whole experience.
Kudos to:  Ralph, Courtney, Mike, Pascual, Norberto and Jose!
