Nothing I hate more than moving especially living in Seattle. From the amount of stuff I have collected over the years, to the traffic, or parking it is a complete mess. I have found it much easier to just use a moving company like SeattleMovers.org. For the weeks it would take me to get my stuff in order and hauled over to my new place, I could hire them for a couple hours and get it all done in a day. They come with everything also. They have a staff who can lift all my heavy things. They also have boxes and shipping material ready to use if needed. That alone is almost worth the hassle of moving.
So if you’re planning on moving around Seattle or anywhere in the Pacific Northwest I would highly recommend the staff at SeattleMoving.org.
