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!

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

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

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.

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

How Much Do Local Moving Services Cost in Tacoma?

The cost of local moving services varies since pricing is based on a variety of factors, such as distance between the current and new locations, amount of items that need to move, and more. According to MoveBuddha, “The typical cost for hiring movers in Tacoma, WA is $133 per hour with a total move cost ranging from $490 to $4,399, on average. For the most accurate estimate, a complete home survey is necessary as it takes into account the size and weight of items, packing requirements, and any additional services you require. If a company doesn’t do an in-depth survey, that is a red flag as they won’t be able to accurately gauge the pricing correctly. This may leave you with hidden fees and unpleasant surprises when you get the bill.

Mountain Moving & Storage offers both in-home and virtual surveys to provide customers with accurate estimates, free of hidden fees. These comprehensive surveys assess all items, ensuring a thorough and accurate pricing structure. They are committed to providing estimates based on a complete understanding of the customer’s moving needs, rather than vague over-the-phone guesses. “Our commitment to transparency starts with the estimate process,” says General Manager, Shannon Phillips. “We ensure every customer receives a personalized and detailed quote, eliminating surprises and building trust from the start.”

How Quickly Can a Moving Company Complete My Tacoma Move?

Most moving companies are pretty efficient with local moves as long as they have a team of experienced movers on the job. The timeframe for your move depends on various factors, such as the size of the move, the distance, and specific requirements. In terms of scheduling, moving companies usually only need one or two weeks of advance notice, as long as it’s not a busy season, to prepare for your move. MoveBuddha explains, “If you’re hiring professional movers for a small local move, it’ll take a few hours.”

Our Mountain Moving & Storage team prides itself on efficient and timely services. We strive to work within your schedule to ensure minimal disruption to your routine, but please contact us as soon as possible, as our schedule can fill up, especially in the summer months. “We understand the importance of sticking to schedules, especially during such a significant change,” says our General Manager, Shannon Phillips. “Our team makes every effort to accommodate your timing needs, ensuring a smooth transition to your new home.”

Mountain Moving & Storage

How Can I Tell if a Tocama Local Moving Company Is Licensed and Insured?

In order to legally offer and execute local moves, each moving company needs to acquire a state license from the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (WUTC). All reliable moving companies should have a minimum of these two licenses and list them either in the header or footer of their website so they are easy to find. USA Home Listings states, “The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires all moving companies to have property damage and cargo insurance.” For your physical and financial protection, do not choose an unlicensed moving company as your Tacoma local mover.

As all moving companies should be, Mountain Moving & Storage is fully licensed and insured. In order to protect our customers and our team, we have general liability and worker’s compensation insurance. Our WUTC license number is CC57070, and our USDOT number is 885643. “Ensuring the safety and security of our customers’ belongings and our team is a top priority,” says our General Manager, Shannon Phillips. With Mountain Moving & Storage, you can move confidently, knowing that your belongings are in the safe hands of professionals.

Mountain Moving & Storage

Where Can I Read Reviews and Rating From a Moving Company’s Past Customers?

It is essential to find a quality moving company in Tacoma that is highly recommended by prior customer reviews. Look for moving companies that have reviews on a third-party site, such as Google Reviews or Yelp, to ensure the reviews are as unbiased as possible. You also want to make sure the company has at least 4.5/5 stars as an overall rating so you know you are getting the best of the best. The number of reviews is also important, as the more reviews the moving company has, the more reliable its overall rating becomes.

Mountain Moving & Storage is proud to have consistently high ratings, recommendations, and positive reviews from our past customers. With over 130 Google customer reviews, our commitment to delivering exceptional service is evident in the feedback from our satisfied customers. “We take great pride in the positive feedback we receive, as it reflects our dedication to excellence in every move,” says our General Manager, Shannon Phillips. “We encourage you to read our Google Reviews to see what our customers say about their experiences moving with us.”

Do Tacoma Moving Companies Offer Any Guarantees?

Local moving companies guarantee the safe transport of your belongings to your new location. Moving Companies are required by law to offer Limited Liability Coverage, meaning the moving company must compensate you 60 cents per pound for lost and damaged items.

At Mountain Moving & Storage, we offer guaranteed pricing, so you will not get any unpleasant surprises when you get your bill. We believe in full transparency with no hidden fees, ensuring that our customers clearly understand the costs associated with their move. “Our approach to pricing is straightforward and honest, guaranteeing that the quote you receive is the price you pay,” states our General Manager, Shannon Phillips.

Mountain Moving & Storage

How Do Local Tacoma Moving Companies Handle Lost or Damaged Items?

Most moving companies do everything they can to protect your belongings; however, all moving companies are required by law to offer Limited Liability Coverage, at no additional cost, for anything that is broken or lost during the move. This plan compensates you 60 cents per pound on each item that is lost or damaged. If you want more coverage, most moving companies offer other valuation plans at an additional cost.

For greater protection, many moving companies offer Full Value Protection Coverage. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration states, “Under Full Value Protection, your mover is responsible for the replacement value of lost or damaged goods in your entire shipment.” Under this plan, if an item is lost or damaged during the move, the moving company will either repair it, replace it, or offer a cash settlement for the cost of the repair or the current market replacement value.

At Mountain Moving & Storage, we take utmost care to prevent any damage or loss during the move. However, we offer Limited Liability Coverage and Full Value Protection as moving valuation options. Therefore, if such an unfortunate event occurs, you will be covered exactly how you want to be. “We’re committed to your peace of mind, ensuring that your belongings are protected throughout the moving process,” explains our General Manager, Shannon Phillips.

Can a Local Tacoma Moving Company Accommodate My Moving Schedule?

Almost all moving companies will do their best to work with your moving timeline. However, calendars can fill up fast, especially during the summer, so make sure you contact your moving company at least a week or two in advance to get on the calendar. explains, “ If you do have to move during peak moving season, we suggest aiming for a mid-month, mid-week move. Demand for movers tends to be highest during weekends, as well at the beginning and end of the month.”

At Mountain Moving & Storage, we understand that moving can be stressful and that flexibility is crucial. We offer weekend availability to accommodate your preferred moving date and time to the best of our ability. We recommend getting on our schedule sooner rather than later, as you’ll be more likely to secure your preferred moving time. “Our goal is to make your move as convenient as possible, which is why we offer flexible scheduling options, including weekends,” says our General Manager, Shannon Phillips.
