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.

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

Warehouse Storage in Tacoma

Moving for the First Time?

Once you’ve selected a moving company and opted for their storage solutions, you’ll set a moving date. On this day, the movers will arrive at your residence or business to load your pre-packed items onto their truck. They will safely transport your belongings to the storage facility and place them on your designated pallet.

Certain storage facilities offer the option to retrieve specific items during their storage period. Should you need an item from storage, the facility’s staff can assist using the packing list. Note that this might require some advance notice and might incur an additional fee. When your new place is move-in ready, the movers will deliver and unpack your belongings. Once everything is in place, you’ll review all your items, culminating with a final confirmation on the Bill of Lading alongside the team leader.

What Is the Cost of Warehouse Moving Storage Services in Tacoma, WA?

Prices are highly variable in the moving industry as they depend on several factors, such as the size of your home or office, the number of items you have, and the total weight of your items. This is why getting at least three free moving and storage quotes is essential to find the best company for you. This Forbes article estimates, “Storage units can cost between $75 and $300 per month, with larger units and temperature-controlled storage costing more.”

Typically, the price of warehouse storage moves is based on the weight of your items. However, if you require additional services like packing and unpacking or enhanced moving valuation, you will incur additional charges.

At Mountain Moving & Storage, we are deeply committed to maintaining a clear and transparent pricing approach for our warehouse storage. We calculate our estimates based on item weight, the number of vaults needed, and any additional services chosen. We understand how vital transparent pricing is for our customers, so we offer thorough, no-obligation on-site and virtual assessments.

When you move with Mountain, you move without ever paying any hidden fees. “Understanding your needs and ensuring clarity in costs is key to our customer service,” states our General Manager, Shannon Phillips.

How Do I Find a Reliable Warehouse Moving and Storage Service in Tacoma?

When searching for dependable warehouse storage in Tacoma, it is essential to look for the company’s experience, licenses, insurance, and customer reviews. A reputable moving company will have the necessary licensing and insurance, demonstrating compliance and readiness for unexpected situations.

Google Reviews can provide genuine insights into a company’s performance. Aim for businesses with higher ratings, preferably above 4/5 stars. Accolades and industry memberships, like an A+ rating from the BBB and awards in the moving industry, further prove a company’s credibility. This CNN article agrees, “Look through Google and Yelp reviews, checking for any red flags. The Better Business Bureau is another excellent place to find ratings.”

What Steps Does the Warehouse Moving and Storage Process in Tacoma Include?

As most moving services do, the warehouse moving and storage process starts with an in-home or virtual estimate. Then, your moving company will create a plan that your moving specialist will share with you.

On your scheduled move day, your moving crew will arrive at your house to load your packed belongings onto our trucks. At this point, you will receive a Bill of Lading. explains, “Think of it as a giant receipt that details the contents of all your possessions loaded on the mover’s truck.”

Your moving team will then transport your items to the warehouse and place them on your dedicated pallet. They will then put the pallet into your designated vault. Having individualized vaults for every customer allows the moving company to accurately manage its storage systems, floor space, and storage capacity.

Once your new home or office is move-in ready, you will notify your moving specialist to schedule a delivery time. On delivery day, your moving crew will deliver your items to their final destination. Then they will unload your belongings and place your items per your instructions.

At Mountain Moving & Storage, our approach centers on personalized service. From the moment you request an estimate, a devoted moving specialist will guide you through every step of your journey. With Mountain, our seasoned team provides free furniture disassembly and reassembly services when using our warehouse storage services. Our General Manager, Shannon Phillips, emphasizes, “We tailor every step to your specific needs, from the first estimate to final delivery. With our experienced team, you can expect thorough care for all your belongings.'”

How Do Moving Companies in Tacoma Store and Organize Their Customers' Items in the Warehouse?

Different moving and storage businesses have varying storage methods, often based on their warehouse size. According to, “A good mover will have a large warehouse capable of storing all of your belongings in the short term.” It’s common in the industry to store items on pallets or inside vaults. If the storage space is large enough, many use a racking system that places these heavy-duty pallets on special pallet racks for storage. This way of storing saves space, keeps things organized, allows for easy access when needed, and offers better air circulation and protection for valuable and delicate items.

At Mountain Moving & Storage, we take the security and order of your belongings seriously. Our 51,000-square-foot storage facility is conveniently located near Mountain Moving & Storage’s office in Tacoma and provides plenty of warehouse storage space for your belongings. Our warehouse utilizes specific vaults for every customer, so your belongings stay separate from everyone else’s.

Once your items are placed in their designated spot, they remain untouched until you’re ready for delivery unless you need something in between. With Mountain Moving, we personalize our storage services to fit each customer’s needs, ensuring every item is cared for and neatly organized. “Every item you store with us is carefully placed in its own vault, ensuring your belongings are well-organized and securely stored until you need them,” says Shannon Phillips, our General Manager.

What Measures Do Moving Companies in Tacoma Take to Keep Items in Storage Safe and Secure?

When it comes to storage, keeping your items safe is the top priority. Certain items, like artwork, electronics, wooden decor or furniture, musical instruments, and delicate fabrics, need stable temperatures to prevent damage. This is why most storage facilities have climate control in their warehouse facility. Additionally, the best storage facilities have measures against water damage and maintain 24/7 security. This Indeed article mentions, “There are a number of security technologies that can help to improve warehouse security, such as video surveillance, access control systems, and intrusion detection systems.”

At Mountain Moving & Storage, we don’t compromise on safety. Our warehouse is 51,000 square feet and climate-controlled to protect sensitive items. We’ve installed flood control and pest prevention systems to safeguard your belongings. With around-the-clock surveillance, security cameras, alarm systems, and a background-checked security team, we ensure your items are secure and free from unauthorized access or activities. “We have strong security measures so your items are protected just as if they were with you,” says Shannon Phillips, our General Manager at Mountain Moving & Storage.

How Does the Pickup and Delivery Process for Warehouse Storage Work?

Careful planning is key when moving items in and out of storage. This process begins by understanding what you’re moving and your specific needs. From there, your moving team will collaborate with you to draft a detailed moving and storage strategy. On your moving day, your moving crew will securely load your items onto the truck, transport them to our warehouse, and place them in their designated vault. According to Angi (formerly Angie’s List), “Vaults offer better storage efficiency, climate control, and professional moving help.”

Once your new home or workspace is move-in ready, we collect your belongings from our warehouse, deliver, and set them up at the desired location. Many moving companies offer unpacking services at an additional fee for a hassle-free transition.

At Mountain Movers, we aim to make your move as easy as possible. Integrating warehouse storage into our services ensures your relocation feels smooth and stress-free. After all, the only difference between a regular move and one with storage is the initial destination of your items. “We handle the details so your transition feels just as smooth as a direct move,” says Shannon Phillips, our General Manager.

What Rules and Regulations Do Tacoma Moving Companies Have For Short-Term and Long-Term Storage?

Short- and long-term storage terms and regulations often align with each other. The terms usually address key points like contract duration, costs, access to items, specific care guidelines, and protocols for changing or ending the service. According to, “You can typically store anything that’s not on a list of prohibited items—but those things can vary by company.” Clear and upfront terms are essential to guarantee the company’s services fully meet your needs and to avoid misunderstandings.

At Mountain Moving & Storage, we emphasize transparency in every storage agreement. We discuss all terms, from pricing to care protocols, openly with our customers before finalizing any storage service. Before you sign on with us, we commit to informing you of all the terms and conditions. This way, you can confidently select the storage solution that fits your needs. “We walk you through every detail to ensure clarity and peace of mind,” explains Shannon Phillips, our General Manager.

What Insurance Options Do Moving Companies in Tacoma Offer and Include in Their Warehouse Storage Plans?

In the moving world, “insurance” is often termed “moving valuation.” explains, “Valuation coverage is simply the amount of liability that your moving company is willing to accept in the case that your belongings become damaged or lost.”  It’s crucial to protect your belongings against potential mishaps during warehouse storage. By law, all moving companies offer Limited Liability Coverage, which provides compensation at 60 cents per pound for any damaged or lost items at no extra charge.

However, this basic coverage may not be enough for all customers. That is why many moving companies offer Full Value Protection at an additional cost. If your items are lost or damaged during the move under Full Value Protection, your moving company will repair, replace, or refund the current market value of all affected items.

At Mountain Moving & Storage, we provide both Limited Liability Coverage and Full Value Protection options. “Choosing the right protection level for your move and storage can make all the difference. We help you navigate these options to find the coverage that best suits your needs,” assures Shannon Phillips, our General Manager.
