Intrastate Movers in Washington State

Are you moving from Seattle WA to another place in the state? Moving to a different city in Washington comes with its own unique set of challenges and perks.  Our Washington state movers at Puget Sound Moving are here to make it as simple as possible.

What is Intrastate Moving?

If you’re moving within the state of Washington and traveling a distance of over 55 miles, we consider that an intrastate move. The process of moving to Spokane or Olympia is different than it would be to stay in the same city or to cross state lines.

For an intrastate move, it’s important to make sure your belongings are packed securely to stay intact throughout the whole drive. You also want the process to be extremely efficient and thorough—after all, nobody wants to make any back-and-forth trips when the round-trip distance totals at least 110 miles!

Still, intrastate moves are often relatively easy with the help of one of the best WA moving companies. You don’t need to worry about putting any belongings in a pod or on a plane. You can rest assured with all of your items in one place—one of Puget Sound Moving’s moving trucks.

How Puget Sound Moving’s Intrastate Movers Can Help

Our Washington moving company can streamline your intrastate move from start to finish.

  • Determine the mileage of your move.
  • Choose the ideal truck size to move all of your belongings at once—safely.
  • Measure the total weight of your belongings using our scale.
  • Help you pack your belongings, if desired.
  • Load and unload your items.

How Much Does It Cost?

We know it’s important to budget every penny and factor in every moving cost when you relocate. That’s why we come up with a final price based on your unique situation. We calculate your charges based on two variables: how far you’re going (mileage) and how much you’re actually moving (weight).

We calculate the mileage based on your final destination, whether it’s Tacoma or Spokane. Then we determine the weight of your belongings using a precise three-step process:

  • Measure the weight of the moving truck while it’s still empty. This is referred to as the lightweight.
  • Load your items onto the truck.
  • Go back to the scale and measure the truck with your items on it. This is now what we refer to as the heavyweight.

Those measurements help us determine the ballpark quote or your moving estimate.
