        seattle skyline

        There are many reasons people move to Seattle. Health-conscious individuals love Seattle's access to healthy food at West Seattle Farmers Market. Seattle is also a sports-loving city where enthusiasts gather at CenturyLink Field for a Seattle Seahawks game or at T-Mobile Park to watch the Seattle Mariners play.

        How much do movers cost in Seattle?

        The average cost for moving services in Seattle is $800 to $9,000 or more. Seattle movers charge by the hour for local moves or by weight and mileage for long-distance relocations. Other factors that influence the price include the size of your home, the distance of your relocation, the time of year and your home’s accessibility.

        Local moving cost in Seattle

        A small move within the city of Seattle (less than 55 miles) usually costs between $800 and $2,600. Rates are generally billed on an hourly basis and determined by the number of movers and the hours required to complete your move. Some additional costs include fees for stairs — such as those in the high-rise apartment buildings of Denny Triangle — which make a move more difficult for the crew.

        Long-distance moving cost to Seattle

        Long-distance movers in Seattle charge between $3,000 to $9,000 or more, depending on factors like the total distance traveled, shipment weight and services rendered. As with local moves, basic service is cheaper than full-service relocations. See our chart for an idea of what prices to expect if you are moving long-distance to or from Seattle.

        Starting CityDistanceAverage Cost
        New York, NY2,858 miles$7,460 - $10,570
        Denver, CO1,305 miles$5,040 - $7,060
        Sacramento, CA752 miles$4,130 - $5,750

        Moving services in Seattle

        Seattle movers charge around $1,600 for basic three-bedroom moves within the city. Those interested in a more DIY service can make their Seattle move with container pods for around $450. This price includes container transit costs and monthly rental fees. If you just need a bulky item like a safe or piano relocated to another home, moving companies in Seattle charge an average of $400 for the service.

        Finding movers in Seattle

        Finding the best Seattle professional movers is a multistep process that begins with understanding your moving needs. It's essential to consider your moving distance, the packing service needed and whether you require any special services, such as piano moving. Not all moving companies offer everything you may need, so it's essential to inquire about a company's full range of services.

        Before making a final decision about house movers in Seattle, consider looking at online reviews — customer reviews give an honest overview of a company’s customer service, claim handling and professionalism. Any company you choose should be adequately licensed and insured.

        Required licenses and permits in Seattle

        All Washington movers that perform interstate moves are required to have a USDOT number and be registered with the FMCSA. Carriers must also hold a valid permit from the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission. Seattle movers are also required to comply with state moving rules and rates. When choosing a mover, always do your due diligence and thoroughly research your options.
