Moving to Seattle, Washington with Long Distance Movers
Have you ever considered leaving your cozy town and moving to another state? Have you ever considered moving to Seattle, Washington? If you have, but you eventually gave up the idea just because you were intimidated by the complicated relocation process or eye-watering moving company prices, you don’t have to worry any longer, for we are here to make that tiresome process of moving easier for you. What you need is reliable moving and storage service and moving helpers, and that’s exactly what Long Distance Movers provide you with.
Before you get down to packing boxes for moving, read on to find out more about this wonderful city. Even if you have already done some research on the subject, you should still take a look at the numerous interesting facts about Seattle we have prepared for you, and perhaps you’ll find something that will help you make a decision in case you are still having second thoughts about moving.
About Seattle, WashingtonThe first thing that you should know about Seattle is that it is a seaport city. It is located on the west coast of the United States, around 100 miles away from the Canada-United States border, and it is estimated to be the fourth largest port in North America. Even though today it is highly developed in respect to different areas, it was not until 19th century that the city became a shipbuilding center, and it developed as a technology center only in the late 20th century. It should be also noted that Seattle has a rich musical history, which would be particularly interesting to explore for jazz fans, given the fact that some of the great jazz musicians, including Ray Charles, Ernestine Anderson and Quincy Jones started their careers in this city. If you are interested to find out more about the history of Seattle before you contact our professional movers.
The Climate in Seattle, Washington
Seattle is popularly known as Rain City, and, needless to say, there’s a reason for giving it such a nickname. The climate of the city is classified as oceanic, which means that precipitation is dispersed throughout the year, so occasional light drizzle is something you will have to get accustomed to once you move there. In case you don’t really like those movie-like walks in the rain, don’t worry, other than that, the weather is mostly fair. Winters are somewhat cold, but mild (extremely cold temperatures are rare), and summers are dry more often than not.
The Culture of Seattle, Washington
When it comes to the culture of this exciting urban city, one thing’s for sure – Seattle is without a doubt the right place for you to broaden your horizons. Being a regional center for the performing arts, the city offers a great variety of choice of art forms – it can be said that you can always find something that you take interest in Seattle. Sounds tempting, don’t you think? Then, don’t waste any more time, give us a ring and our long distance moving company will help you with relocation, so you can start exploring various cultural contents in Seattle as soon as possible. We assumed you would like to take a look at some cultural institutions you might visit when you get there, so we have prepared a list of some of the numerous museums and galleries that you will probably like to remember before moving to Seattle.
- Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture – if a natural history museum is the first thing on your must-see list, then this is the right choice for you. Burke Museum is the oldest natural history museum west of Mississippi River and it has been estimated that it has a collection of over 16 million artifacts. Can you imagine what an experience it is to visit such a glorious place? Well, with State to State Movers, you don’t have to.
- Center for Wooden Boats – this museum, as the name itself suggests, is dedicated to the maritime history, and not just of Seattle, but the whole Pacific Northwest area. Not only does it give you the opportunity to learn something about the maritime culture, but it also offers boat rentals, together with various classes, lectures and workshops.
- Frye Art Museum – should you decide to visit Frye Art Museum, you will get to see a great number of paintings and sculptures created during the last three centuries. This art museum offers a collection of various actors’ masterpieces; some of the great names that you’ll come across include Eugène Isabey, Franz von Lenbach, Leopold Schmutzler, Eugène Boudin, William-Adolphe Bouguereau etc.
Since we have listed only a few well-known museums in Seattle, you can click here and learn about many others, not only in the city, but in Seattle Area, as well.
As for galleries, you might be interested in visiting some of the following:
- Henry Art Gallery – it boasts a collection of 25,000 objects, including the works by Sean Scully, Louise Bourgeois, and Bruce Nauman, among others.
- SOIL Art Gallery – what’s particularly interesting to note about SOIL is the fact that it is one of the few galleries which provide emerging artists with an opportunity to showcase their work. Perhaps you would like to be one of them? Remember that with Long Distance Movers and our top-notch moving service you can sail through the relocation process.
- James Harris Gallery – this contemporary gallery covers various works of art, from paintings to photography and video. It is definitely worth visiting.

Seattle Long Distance Movers Review
Long Distance Movers stood out and impressed me the most, their structure was well formatted and the way they presented me with recent references I could refer to created that comfort I needed... To sum up my wonderful experience I want to say with no doubt I would recommend and continue using this company.

When you call, you're assigned a contact who will be your point person throughout your move. This person, Brian, was very courteous and helpful. Moving is never any fun, but Brian knew what he was talking about, we were able to create our estimate, and I signed electronically. Easy. The crew that came to pick up my belongings was on time, efficient, and very courteous. I did not pay by the hour--and they took their time with my belongings. They did a great job wrapping my antique bed, tv, and other precious items. When the moving van was en route to my destination, I received text message updates on my phone, so I knew where the truck was at any given moment. The team that delivered my belongings actually arrived early and was amazing at unpacking and putting everything together. It was seamless. Nothing broken, nothing lost. I liked the personnel, they had a lot of energy and took a lot of pride in their work. Communication was great throughout the whole process. I highly recommend Long Distance Movers! read lessGigi G.Seattle, WA7/18/2018

WOW They were great.Let me start by saying that I used another moving company from San Diego to Seattle...and they were horrible. They packed all my furniture and boxes very carefully, but when they arrived in Seattle, everything was thrown upside down. They broke all of my dishes, two antique chairs, an easel and a bike (more than $5000 of damage)...when I claimed the broken items for insurance, they offered to pay me $15.With all that being said, I was very nervous to move again. When I received my quote from LDM, they assured me that the same company packs and unpacks the truck. They quoted a fair price, and they provided a small delivery window. They packed up all of my items and treated my home with respect. When I arrived to Texas, I had a different crew, but they were just as lovely. No broken items!!! My items got to Texas with ninja speed and my home was unpacked immediately.I will definitely use LSD for my next move. Thank you! read lessCosette S.Seattle, WA11/02/2017

Let me tell you that these guys came out on top as far as overall moving experience is concerned. The movers were possessed with only one goal when they came in to my apartment, to consolidate all the garbage I had accumulated, which I called furniture, and package it nice and clean for the ease of transportation across the country. They moved their magic wands and within a few hours my house was as empty as my wallet always is. Strictly speaking in engineering terms, they minimized the number of boxes needed to pack all the stuff, without excluding anything, no matter how trivial it was, for example iPhone instruction manual (who needs that) or "Microwaving for One" book I had lying around. They were able to carry heavy loads on their shoulders and walk in a straight line, without hitting walls or hot girls coming their way. They shipped my car 2K miles in open trailer, without damaging it and the car arrived exact same day that was promised to me, nothing short of amazing. My apartment stuff arrived a week later, was promptly unloaded from truck, assembled nicely and my case file was closed. We had completed our longest move ever without much hassle and stretching our budget. If I ever move again ,though chances of that happening are less than a meteor strike on 29th February, I would call these guys first. I would whole heartily recommend these guys for their timeliness, coordination and helpfulness. I hope your business goes the long distance. read lessShreyash U.Seattle, WA5/03/2017

Long Distance Movers arrived on time, extremely pleasant group of guys, very courteous, treated all of our belonging with the utmost of care, and went out of their way to protect our property too. They were cautious with moving around our furniture, making sure that nothing touches the wall, making sure that our rugs would not get dirty. At one point they wanted to take off their shoes because our rug was just cleaned, but I told them they did not have to. One thing that I really liked was once we got into my brand-new home they reassembled some of my furniture. They seemed to have loved their job, they were very friendly and professional. Very professional - I really can't say enough good things about Long Distance Movers. They made me feel very comfortable, and had an amazing attitude. I have never been able to say how great a moving company was. The last experience I had with a moving company had me worried about the process. They didn't have the great attitude, strong worth ethic's, and fair prices like Long Distance Movers had. My sister is also about to move into Seattle and i already have her using Long Distance Movers as well. I would totally recommend them to everyone. read lessStephy D.Seattle, WA9/09/2016

I used to get all my friends and family together to help pack boxes, carry heavy furniture and go get that rented box truck (which never seemed to run right). I have done it many times and thought that was the norm. Our last recent move we decided to try something new. We called up Long Distance Movers, which we heard from a friend was awesome. They gave us a great quote and also gave us peace of mind that everything would be taken care of. After talking with the owner, I felt at ease with the move. He was very friendly and made sure all of our concerns were taken care of. The level of professionalism was perfect. I was comfortable and had a lot of confidence on this team. I literally stood back while the guys hand packed everything in the house with meticulous care. I didnt even pack one thing (although i tried). The furniture was wrapped and the dishes and fragile furniture was wrapped in bubble wrap. Not only did they do a good job packaging our belongings, they were very careful. They weren't in any rush and made sure that no furniture would bang up the walls or slide around in the back of the truck. Everything was moved into their huge truck. After everything was packed and loaded up, the house was spotless. All we had to do was vacuum. No one wants to move, but if you do, call Long Distance Movers. They are very reliable. read lessEesha P.Seattle, WA9/06/2016

The truck was right on schedule arriving on move day and finishing up in about 5 hours (which was alot sooner than i expected). Everything was packed very well, preventing any breakage and shifting damage. I was a bit scared something would happen so the guys packed everything double with out me even asking. This made me feel like they really do care about our belongings. Everything arrived safe. Going to our new home they were very quick on unpacking and moving everything into the new house. Luckily it was only one story but many rooms, so every time they brought a box, they would ask us what room they wanted it to be in. I honestly don't think they even took a break. They had a very strong work ethic and I really respected that. Blankets, bubble wrap, pack paper and boxes - the estimate of these materials was spot on and the quote as well. No surprises with anything, Great communication and an even better crew. This was a move that exceeded my expectations and I recommend Long Distance Movers. read lessJessica B.Seattle, WA9/04/2016

The day of our move they arrived only about five minutes late max, but the crew chief, called to let me know which was very responsible. They definitely made up for it in speed of move! Not only did they work quick, but they were cautious also and very careful with our furniture. They moved our piano perfectly, and made sure all of our belongings were packaged in a safe manner. We heard zero complaints about it. One stand out moment: They picked up a large TV cabinet that I closed my drawers with tape on and they said they kept hearing something small roll around so they wanted to make sure it wouldn't ruin the inside of the cabinet so they checked it. I guess when they opened it and they found my brothers money clip with some cash and his credit card in it. I had forgotten to pack it up and they brought it to my attention. Thank goodness they were careful and honest. Saved me lots of tears over my mistake! And towards the end their supervisor also stopped by to check in on things. I thought this was excellent for the boss to make sure the crew was doing a stand up job. And the price was amazing, when I requested for a quote it did take a couple of hours but I was overall satisfied considering that it was the cheapest deal out of four different companies that I have called. And they did a follow up about four days later and asked me how the whole process went which I thought was very professional. I would've definitely paid more for this teams service highly worth it.

Everyone knows moving is really stressful and these movers took that element out of the picture for me entirely. From the pleasant and professional interaction on the phone with the Cordinator, to the movers who were so quick, efficient and very professional and their prices which are much less expensive than other movers. I literally called three different companies and these guys were the best price. I got my quote after a couple of hours after requesting for one. They came early in the morning as I asked, I was in a strict schedule and had to go back to work at the end of the day to close up.. I was very worried that this whole process would take long but the gentlemen literally worked very fast but don't get me wrong they were very careful as well... Very organized and responsible with my belongings, they even asked me if I wanted to double wrap some of the furniture. They were beyond careful with my things, they made certain everything was handled with the most care and in general were just the most friendly movers. At some point I let them do their own thing and left to run a couple of errands, that's how comfortable I was with them. And when I came back they were finishing up just doing extra work they shouldn't have been doing. They truly went above and beyond and I'm so appreciative of their wonderful efforts. Nothing was damaged and they made certain everything was where I wanted it to go. Even though I'm in no hurry to move again, i would definitely call the movers again in a heartbeat. Im extremely happy with the outcome. It was an awesome experience that couldn't have gone any smoother. read lessVeronica S.Seattle, WA8/25/2016

Thankfully, the quote took less than a day to get to me and just a few hours to complete after a couple gentlemen arrived alongside their supervisor to check out the size of the house, I requested quotes from a couple other places and they got back to be when these guys started the process with me promptly and efficiently.I definitely did not expect the move to be so easy, because it was the one thing which was worrying me for months on end. My father kept stressing me out by reminding me whichever company we choose better be experienced and ready to handle a lot of work. I was fortunate enough to fall into the right hands and not get scolded for choosing a group of guys that did not know what they were doing. The movers from Long Distance relieved me of all my worries as soon as I spoke to the receptionist, they assured me that they would be able to accommodate to any specific guidelines we may have. I did not have the time to wrap all of my stuff in plastic but they made it an effort to keep my stuff safe and sound in transportation. Let me tell you, my packing was atrocious. I was worried about showing the guys the amount of boxes of clothing and furniture they had to deal with. They let me know that they could relocate my things without ripping me off. Not only that, but I had a lot of electronics to transport, and they showed me how they were able to organize my television set, computer, video players, and fridge in the car. Everything came into my house in one piece and we were so happy to find out nothing had been lost or damaged on the route there. I am super sensitive when it comes to being on time and staying on schedule, the guys over at Long Distance surpassed my expectations and got to my place sooner than I did! They helped me take my stuff out and even organized it around my house with no extra charge which we really appreciated. At this time they were off the clock and had no requirement to do that since their job was technically already over, they took all of our stuff from one place to another, that final part was just a good gesture by the movers which showed that they truly were an awesome group of workers.I would recommend them to absolutely anyone who likes efficiency and organization from a moving company that delivers the very service that they guarantee to provide. I would definitely go through another transition with them, especially when it comes to a long distance move they are definitely the best in their business at what they do. If I had to start all over again from scratch I would not do a single thing differently and these guys would still be the movers I would end up hiring read lessIlham A.Seattle, WA8/09/2016
