At Stateside Movers LLC and our Seattle NW Movers location we have a low overhead in comparison to the national moving companies and can typically beat the national moving companies by hundreds of dollars or more on a long distance move.
We can arrive with 1 or more 26' full size box trucks for your move. If the distance is short (a local move), we can save you money by bringing one truck and then doing a second or even a third trip if needed.
All loading, unloading, and packing are itemized separately from the transportation cost and billed hourly. See the above hourly rates under local. These hourly rates based on the number of movers and or trucks also apply to long distance moves over 100 miles.

Due to high demand for rental moving trucks in California, it costs us an average of $2,000 more per full size box truck to do a move out of California and this is passed on to each California customer as an additional fee. We split this cost with you, depending on the actual rate of the rental truck. Our specialized service means we fly a team in and rent typically from Penske. Then we get you our customer moved to the final state within 3 - 5 days typically, depending on distance, much faster and much safer than a van line with all its warehouse transfers along the way.

What is my normal liability for loss and damage when I accept goods from an individual shipper?
(a) In general, you are legally liable for loss or damage if it happens during performance of any transportation of household goods and all related services identified on your lawful bill of lading.
(b) Full Value Protection Obligation - In general, your liability is for the household goods that are lost, damaged, destroyed, or otherwise not delivered to the final destination in an amount equal to the replacement value of the household goods. The maximum amount is the declared value of the shipment. The declared value is subject to rules issued by the Surface Transportation Board (STB) and applicable tariffs.
(c) If the shipper waives, in writing, your liability for the full value of the household goods, then you are liable for loss of, or damage to, any household goods to the extent provided in the STB released rates order. Contact the STB for a current copy of the Released Rates of Motor Carrier Shipments of Household Goods. The rate may be increased annually by the motor carrier based on the U.S. Department of Commerce's Cost of Living Adjustment.
