The Mountain Moving gentlemen who moved us couldn’t have been more courteous and skilled. Prompt, careful of all our belongings- including our piano-, and done in less time than the estimate- what’s not to love? Highly recommend!

Had Jim, Greg, and Dave (I think I have those names right) move my apartment this morning and they were such a great crew. Very respectful of the space and they were such a pleasure to work with. The whole process was really easy. Thanks!

My nonprofit organization recently worked with Doug's moving crew to coordinate the move-out of our building and into storage while we right size to a better office. Doug was helpful in answering questions, following up on needed information, and... responding to our concerns quickly and professionally. His team was flawless and fast on our moving day, finishing up the work early and under budget,. They also coordinated the efforts for the discarded items to the dump, eliminating extra hassles and time for our staff. We have also worked with Shannon in the business office to take of billing, and those interactions have been helpful, courteous and professionally managed as well. We are so grateful for the excellent work ethic and follow through from everyone at Mountain Moving & Storage, and we look forward to working with them more

Excellent move from beginning to end. I’ve worked professionally with Mountain for over 20 years and was always impressed with their low claims ratio. This was the first time I got to experience it personally. The crew was outstanding and the packing was... superb. We didn’t have a single damaged item in our move. We are upper happy and impressed. If you want or need a flawless move, please do not hesitate to contact Mountain to have the job done more

Great experience. Professional, did not cut corners. Had another local company cancel on me the day of my planned move and had already received a quote from Mountain Movers prior to the other company’s cancellation. Called them and asked if they could... move me ASAP and they were there the next morning. No nonsense, rapid move, never had to redirect their movers back on task. Highest recommend!read more

Above & beyond service. Doug provided a very thorough estimate, which prepared us more than we expected. We appreciated getting the follow-up confirmation from Shannon.

They were a joy to work with and took great care of our belongings. Thank you!read more

The workers moved a restored juke box filled with CD’s that couldn’t be jostled too much, or I would have spent hours re-organizing them. It was very heavy and awkward, yet two of them handled it no problem. It was moved between two residences smoothly.... Initially we were not sure if it would take three people to move it, so a third mover was there, but went unneeded. The good news was that they were honest and did not charge me for the third person. I would have paid, since he was on the premises, and they refused to charge me. THAT is why I will hire them again in the future should I need to. Honest, efficient, personable work...the way it should be.Joeread more

These guys were amazing! The estimator called me back immediately, quoted a fair price and sent two great guys to move my mom.

My husband and I would like to thank Ed and his crew for the wonderful job they did moving our 10x10 shed today. We feel it was a very good price for the service. Though it was a lot of hard work they put in and maneuvering around they had to do, they... maintained great attitudes and were friendly. They work very well together. We also want to thank Doug for his timely responses to us through e-mail. We will definitely recommend Mountain Moving and Storage to others who may need a building moved or moving in general. We are sure your quality of service would be the same. Thank youRichard and Elaine Maceread more

The gentleman I talked to on the phone to arrange a move didn't seem to have a good handle on what was going on. Had to call 4 times to check on my delivery because he wasn't sure where his crew was or when they had an opening. The moving crew was... phenomenal. They unloaded my entire 26' truck (due to an injury I had) in only an hour. No broken items and they were more than willing to be gentle with the more delicate items and even moved things into the rooms I asked for to ease the hassle of doing it myself. Great job guys I'm more

Great experiences with Mtn Moving. I have used them twice - once when they were assigned to my military move from WA to HI, and a second time when I chose them for a move from one point in Tacoma to another.I can't comment on pricing for the first move... (paid for by military), but the second move's pricing was very fair. James (estimator) arrived as scheduled, provided a written estimate and tentatively scheduled a moving day. A 'what-to-expect on moving day' PDF was provided. He offered to provide boxes and packing materials, if needed.Movers (Todd, Tua, Fah) arrived on time on moving day. Walked thru, discussed basic plan and they got to work. Watched the guys move all items and they used standard equipment (carpeted dollies, pads, tie downs, etc). Everything was handled carefully and nothing was thrown or dropped. Load up time was less than estimated and very smooth. Unloading at the new house took even less time.All in all, an excellent experience. Simply put, the service provided was the service promised. I think prepping for moving day is 80-90% of what makes things go smoothly. We had everything boxed up, labeled, and staged by the doors of each room on moving day. Clothes taken out of closets and dressers and boxed up. Read thru the "what-to-expect" PDF and transported prohibited items ourselves before moving day (open chemical containers, alcohol, high value items). Everything you leave for the movers on moving day to deal with adds TIME. That, in turn, will increase your final cost, or torpedoes the whole move because of some more

We had a wonderful experience with Mountain Moving! The initial consult was informative and easy. The day of move was smooth- they arrived timely and moved quickly, making sure everything was taken care of. We had them pack some things also and everything... was packed with care.

My wife and I scheduled these guys to help us with our local move. We have used several local companies in the past and have never been happy with the result, hence why we kept trying someone new. These guys are my goto recommendation if you need... assistance moving. I called and reserved a team of 4 and two trucks about a week before our move. They let me know the price estimate and gave us the estimate time they would be there. They called to confirm the day prior and called the morning of to let us know they were on their way. The guys that showed up (Mark, Gabriel, Robert, Jesse) were polite and professional and knew what they were doing. We showed them what needed to go and they quickly got to work. They treated our stuff just like it was there own. They worked quickly and efficiently. Moving is always stressful, these guys made at least this part of it easy. Instead of shopping around for who may be the cheapest, save your self the hassle and call these guys to take care of your more

Apartment Movers In Tacoma

Moving for the First Time?

To kick off your apartment move, you’ll want to get in touch with the moving company and request an estimate. They’ll then schedule a visit to your apartment to assess how much stuff you’re bringing to your new home. Once you’re happy with the estimate, they’ll send over an Order of Service, which lays out the services they’ll provide. If your apartment is in a multi-story building, it’s usually a good idea to reserve the elevator for a specific time slot to keep things running smoothly. And if you’ve opted for packing services, a team will swing by a few days before moving day to pack up your belongings.

On the moving day itself, you’ll receive a Bill of Lading, which is essentially a receipt for your items that also outlines the delivery terms. Your movers will carefully load everything onto the moving truck. Once you arrive at your new place, the moving crew will unload your items, making sure everything matches up with the Bill of Lading. Lastly, do a quick walkthrough to ensure everything’s in order and sign off with the team leader.

What is the Cost of Hiring Apartment Movers in Tacoma?

In the moving industry, the cost of hiring apartment movers can vary based on several factors, including the size of the move, distance, and any additional services required. On average, for local apartment moves in Tacoma, the cost can range from $530 to $3,500. For long-distance moves, costs can start from $2,000 and can go up to $7,000 or more. Getting an accurate estimate tailored to your specific needs is essential to understand the potential costs better.

What Services Can Apartment Movers Provide?

Full-service apartment movers typically offer a comprehensive range of services, including moving specialty items, packing and unpacking, loading and unloading, transportation, and sometimes even storage solutions. These services are designed to make the moving process seamless and stress-free. While loading, unloading, and transportation are standard, services like packing and storage might come at an additional cost.

At Mountain Moving & Storage, we pride ourselves on offering a vast variety of moving and storage services. From local, long-distance, and international moves to senior moves, labor-only moves, and packing services, we’ve got you covered. We also offer specialty moves for delicate items like gun safes and pianos, ensuring that your belongings are handled with the utmost care. For those needing warehouse storage, our 51,000 sq ft climate-controlled warehouse is under 24/7 surveillance, ensuring the safety of your items.

How Do Professional Apartment Movers Handle Delicate or Valuable Items?

Handling delicate or valuable items is a crucial aspect of the moving process. Professional movers use high-quality packing materials and techniques to protect all your items, especially those that are delicate and fragile. This can include bubble wrap, padded moving blankets, and custom crating for particularly fragile items. It’s essential to choose a moving company with expertise in handling specialty items like antiques, artwork, and other valuables.

Mountain Moving & Storage understands how much you value your belongings. Our team is expertly trained in packing and handling specialty items, including antiques, artwork, and other valuables. We always provide top-quality packing materials with our packing services, and we disassemble bulkier furniture items to keep them safe during transit. Upon arrival, we reassemble your items free of charge. With our air-cushioned trucks and the experience of our crew, you can have peace of mind knowing that your precious items are in safe hands.

How Long Does the Apartment Moving Process Take in Tacoma?

The duration of the apartment moving process can vary based on the move’s size, the travel distance, and any additional services required. For local moves in Tacoma, the process can often be completed within a day or two. However, long-distance or more complex moves might take longer, spanning several days to sometimes weeks.

We highly recommend getting a free estimate to accurately predict your moving timeline. For a rough estimate of a long-distance apartment move, it is a good rule of thumb to allow at least one day for loading, one day for unloading, and an additional day for every 500 miles traveled. However, the estimate from your moving company will be the most accurate.

With Mountain Moving & Storage, efficiency is one of our top priorities. We offer same-day estimates that include an estimated moving timeline. This ensures you have all the information you need to make your decision on your moving company. At Mountain, we aim to complete your move promptly without compromising on the quality of service. Our team works hard to ensure that the moving process is as smooth and swift as possible, catering to each customer’s unique needs.

Do Apartment Movers Offer Free Moving Estimates?

Yes, many professional moving companies offer free moving estimates to provide customers with a clear understanding of the potential costs involved. These estimates can be based on an in-person survey of the items to be moved or through virtual consultations, especially in today’s digital age. We recommend getting three estimates to move your belongings so you can compare the cost to move with each company and the customer service each company provides.

Mountain Moving & Storage believes in transparency and customer satisfaction. That’s why we offer free, no-obligation on-site or virtual estimates. We also offer same-day estimates, especially for small moves like apartments, so that we can get your move on the calendar as soon as possible. You can request your free apartment moving estimate by completing our online estimate request form or calling us at (253) 581-2414.

Where Can I Read Reviews From Previous Customers of a Tacoma Moving Company?

Reviews from previous customers can typically be found on the moving company’s website, Google reviews, or other third-party review platforms like Yelp and Better Business Bureau (BBB). Remember that reviews on third-party sites like Google and Yelp are the most credible, as the company cannot filter them. These reviews provide first hand experiences of the quality of service and customer experience provided.

Mountain Moving & Storage values the feedback of our customers. We are proud to be highly rated at a 4.5/5 star overall rating with over 100 Google reviews. Our A+ rating by the BBB further attests to our dedication to providing quality moving services and customer satisfaction. We encourage our customers to share their moving experiences and feedback to help us continually improve our services. Check out our Google Customer Reviews today to learn more about the experiences that our customers have had moving with us.

Mountain Moving & Storage

How am I Covered If Something Gets Damaged Or Lost During The Move?

Federal law requires moving companies to offer Limited Liability Coverage free of charge with every move. This compensates the customer 60 centers per pound per item that is lost or damaged. However, this level of coverage is not enough for some customers, which is why many moving companies offer Full Value Protection plans at an additional cost.

If you purchase Full Value Protection, your moving company will have to repair, replace, or reimburse you for the fair market value of any items broken or lost during the move. If you have items valued at $100 or more per pound, you must claim them on an Items of Extraordinary Value Declaration. Otherwise, your moving company will not be liable for them. Since there are so many forms of moving valuation, it’s essential to understand the different valuation options available and choose the amount of coverage that best suits your needs.

At Mountain Moving & Storage, we prioritize the safety of your belongings. We are licensed and insured, ensuring your items are protected during the move. We also offer Limited Liability Coverage included with every move. However, if that level of coverage does not meet your needs, we also offer Full Value Protection and Items of Extraordinary Value Declaration at an additional cost. This way, when you move with Mountain Moving & Storage, you will be protected at the level of your choosing.

Why Choose Mountain Moving & Storage?

  • Free On-Site Estimates Available
  • Same-Day Estimates
  • Same-Day Service Available
