If you're not opposed to renting your own truck and dollies, I found the movers at People Helping People Moving in Tacoma to be excellent. I needed to move from a small 1300 sq ft apartment to a 2300 sq house and just wanted help for a Sunday morning to move the big stuff (we had a whole week to move the little stuff and were moving down the street) and was getting all sorts of wild quotes. PHPM quoted me a fair price for three hours of two movers and they were able to do way more than I expected when we were done.
Godwin - I am a move manager and have several great referrals. You said within Greater Seattle. From where to where? Movers charges start when they leave their dock, or office. Having movers that are nearer to at least one end of your trip can reduce cost.
Let me know where and I will refer my best guys in that area!
You want to get an estimate in person, by video or photos to get the closest quote.
Make sure you are getting them scheduled 1.5 months prior to your move so you get your dates. They are busy!!
I could talk about this forever. If you want prep, estimate acquisition, scheduling, day of or unpacking and nesting support, we are here for you!
