Avoid Rogue Movers

It’s tempting to hire a cheap unlicensed mover.  It’s just across town, right? What could go wrong?  Actually, a lot.  There is a reason they are referred to as “Rogue Movers”. If things go wrong, you have little recourse.

Professional moving companies like Olympic are registered and licensed with the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission.  They are fully vetted, trusted businesses. Olympic offers highly competitive rates, a fully trained staff and well maintained equipment.  Read the Washington Movers Guide

Your Questions About Local Moving

If this is your first professional local move or you are a moving pro, you can count upon Olympic’s highly-trained staff to complete your local move carefully and professionally.  Below are some of the most common local moving questions.

Yes. The Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission is responsible to oversee moving companies. They determine the rate structure and oversee moving company compliance.  Some movers, called “Rogue Movers” are not registered and therefore are operating illegally. 

Local in-state moves (of less than 56 miles) are charged on an hourly basis, from when the mover leaves their warehouse to when they return. Hourly charges vary by season, so call to get the latest rates.

Charges for packing are calculated based upon the number and type of cartons used. Tape and paper are not extra. The actual packing service is charged on the same hourly rate as the move.

We provide a number of services. The most common are moving labor, packing and valuation.  Speak with your Moving Consultant to discuss your specific needs.

Yes. You can do all or just part of the packing. We often provide what is called a “breakables” pack where we just pack the fragile items.  Keep in mind that the cartons you pack are not covered under the valuation protection program. 

Yes. Moves traveling beyond 55 miles within the state are called intrastate moves. There is a different rate structure compared to local moves. The major difference is that the move transportation is based upon weight.  

Yes. Movers provide what is called “valuation”.  Valuation is the liability that the mover assumes for damage or loss to items. You as the consumer can choose different options based upon your needs. Refer to the UTC moving guide for options.   Always check with your homeowner or renter’s insurance to see what coverage you have through them. 

Yes. The moving consultant will provide you with a brochure outlining items that are prohibited. In general, items that are flammable or explosive, live pets or plants, or corrosive items are prohibited. 

Yes. Not a problem.

Not everything is what it seems. The lowest quote could turn out to be the most expensive. The best advice is buyer beware.  We provide a brochure that will help you to understand how to choose a mover.
