Ready to move to Washington State? If you are looking for a new way of life on the Pacific Coast, Washington State is a great option. Although it’s more than just a change of scenery, Washington State does have beautiful parks, hiking trails, mountains and two distinct climates, depending on which side of the Cascade Mountains you’re on.

Every move has its benefits. For Californians moving to Washington State, you’ll appreciate the fact that Washington State has no state income tax. While the cost of living is somewhat lower, Washington State offers plenty of job opportunities in tech and tourism, much like California does.

But this isn’t a move you can take lightly. Moving almost 12 hours north will require a moving company that can go the distance with you. That’s Pink Transfer Moving & Storage, the family-owned and operated long-distance mover that has been serving California since 1928. We have all the services you’ll need to transport your household goods to your new destination safely.

Everything you’ll need for a successful move is within the scope of our services, from furniture disassembly and reassembly to packing to plastic bubble wrap. Take advantage of the Pink Advantage for your big move.

Census data shows 31,882 people moved to the Evergreen State from the Sunshine State in 2019 alone. Seattle, WA, was the most popular destination for Angelenos looking to move to Washington State, according to Redfin, a national real estate broker. About 4.1 percent of people who left L.A. moved to Seattle.

Californians move to Washington for the diversity of landscape: mountains, lush forests and island retreats. The state has one of the highest minimum wages in the country. Canada is just a short drive away.

As the number one family-owned mover with interstate authority on the West Coast, Pink Transfer Moving & Storage is your one-stop-shop for anyone planning a move to Seattle, Olympia, Tacoma or Wenatchee, WA.

Just as you invested time and energy into your search for a new home, you must also invest in finding the right moving company. The Better Business Bureau advises that you get written estimates from three moving companies. Make sure your mover is licensed by the Department of Transportation, and check out their Google and Yelp reviews to make sure you can trust the people who will be with you on moving day.

One thing to keep in mind as you plan your move to Washington is the change in climate. If you’re planning on moving in the summer, you may appreciate the precipitation. But, Washington Staters agree, the winter months can be grey and dreary. As one person who moved from California to Washington put it, there’s never NOT a chance for rain, and the clouds don’t go away.

Next to consider is how much room you’ll have in your new home and whether you can – or want to – bring it all with you. Many people use the time before a move to declutter and donate unwanted items. We have a blog on 17 Things You Can Do To Declutter Your Home, including where to drop off unneeded furniture and food, and how to emotionally say good-bye to the trinkets and baubles you gathered during your California lifetime.

Exceptions to the list of what we can transport include explosives, ammo, potted plants, gasoline and many chemicals, such as cleaners and pesticides. Here is a list of prohibited items. Also be sure to review Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move, a comprehensive list put together by the Federal Motor Vehicle Carrier Safety Administration.

Starting early with packing, planning and getting estimates is the best way to avoid stress and hassles when it comes to moving. At Pink Transfer Moving & Storage, we have been moving families from California to new destinations around the globe since 1928. We can help you move to Washington State or anywhere out West.
