Before You Move

Moving and Storage Tips

There are several things you will want to consider before you move. That’s why we put together a helpful list of things to consider when you go through your moving experience. It is our desire to make your move as easy as possible. Some of the things in our “Before Your Move” pages will remind you of key things that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Check out some of the information on the following pages and see if you’re prepared for your move.

Your Move and the Weather

Moving brings its own set of challenges. Moving in Seattle is not like moving in some warmer, drier climates. We have many more days of rain and that can really make a mess of your move (and more importantly) your belongings, if you’re not prepared.

If it does rain on your moving day, be sure you’re vigilant of what the weather might do to your most important belongings. Even if Apex is helping, the more people watching over your possessions the better. So be sure to make sure your expensive tables and furniture are dry once they arrive in the truck or into your new house. Our Moving professionals are experienced enough to know to look for these things, but one more set of eyes (yours) is never a bad idea just to be sure. Don’t let the weather mess up your valuables. Be prepared for anything.

Our APEX estimator, James, is a true professional and provided a prompt bid and follow up. The office staff was knowledgeable & courteous. The moving crew comprised of Eugene (an amazing lead), Manu, Billy and Ron were on-time, treated each other with respect and humor. They were hands-down the hardest working crew we have experienced! They made our move fun! A huge thank you and major KUDOS to APEX Moving and Storage for a seamless seamless transition to our new home!read more

Excellent service!!! Apex was awesome, in every way! Initially I contacted them for an estimate - they came out, were very professional, explained everything - all the options - nothing hidden, super helpful! I got my estimate which was explained very thoroughly to me and that it was an "estimate" and how it could maybe go up or maybe go down. Again, very up front and professional, nothing hidden at all. The date ended up changing and the office staff were nothing but courteous and understanding the entire time - I knew I could count on them! Moving day finally came and the moving staff were super friendly, helpful, and very efficient! What I really loved about Apex was they broke down those items that needed to be (e.g., a treadmill, some shelving) and it was ALL included - when I arrived at my destination and everything was unloaded, boom, it was unloaded to where I need it to be and all the items that had been taken apart were put back together! When I got my bill it was a wee bit higher than my estimate, which I knew to possibly expect, but it was because the weight of all my stuff was higher than had been initially figured, no problem. No surprises or hidden costs - and EVERY step of the way was professional, caring, helpful, and efficient! Moving sucks, but if I ever have to go through that again (I hope it's no time soon!) I will most definitely go through Apex!read more
