Washington State (not to be confused with the homonymous Washington, D.C.) has continuously been flooded with new residents since the surge of premium coffee in the early ‘90s. Since then, Washington has been moving into the American mainstream as a technology hub for Microsoft and America’s addiction to Starbucks has come to the state.

Washington State Moving Information

Understanding laws and regulations in Washington for intrastate moves are one thing but for movers who handle interstate moves (crossing the state line), the rules can be different. For all moves handled from one state to the next are handled by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA). Each state has its own regulations or state regulatory agencies that control how movers operate.

Now that you’re moving to Washington, there are a couple tips you’ll want to keep in mind:

  • Meet your mover in your home - Get an in-home estimate on size of move, weight of move, packing, and #of floors, storage, additional value protection, and delivery. Keep in mind that estimates are not final. The estimate may be over or under the actual charges at destination. Compare Costs!
  • Depend on your mover - If you want a reliable and reputable moving company, avoid using the yellow pages. State regulatory agencies like the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission can put you in the right direction. If you experience problems, you can call 1-888-333-WUTC (9882) or email consumer@utc.wa.gov.
  • Check their rap sheet - Check with your local Better Business Bureau for comments, complaints and experiences from other consumers.
  • Micro-manage your move - Be on hand at the time of packing, pick-up and delivery to protect your interests. Carefully inspect all your possessions upon their arrival.
  • Life’s treasures - Identify highly valued and treasured items so they may be given appropriate care. Set aside jewelry, documents, money and especially valuable small items to carry with you.
  • Protect your goods - They will be partially protected for 60 cents per pound per article at no extra cost. You may, for a modest charge, place increased valuation on your goods, or purchase protection insurance. Discuss your specific protection requirements with your mover in advance.
  • Get receipts - Get an official receipt from your mover upon delivery with all weights, rates and charges. This is your official receipt.

It is important to hire a licensed mover in Washington. Doing so will protect not only your goods but you as well. Movers should always provide you with proof that they are capable of handling your move. If you need assistance verifying a mover in Washington, you can contact the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission at (360) 753-3111.
