I use Bekins personally and professionally. We just moved our office to a bigger location and they were available for all of our needs. Greet experience on all levels. Ken, the estimator, Penny at the office and John and Jay our movers were beyond fabulous to work with Bekins is the only moving company I use.

Best moving experience I have ever had. I have moved several times with the military but this local move was the smoothest move yet. I would use them again.

We had two great movers, Steven and Keith. They were here on time, pleasant, professional and great workers. We would refer anyone to use them for any type of moving.

Moving crew was awesome. Hard working, professional, nice folks, That is all I can say good about Bekins NW. Let's back up a bit and unfold the whole story. Upon initial consultation with sales (Brett) an estimate was given that seemed OK. However, Brett was told that a recent move (5 months prior) did not have enough or rather a large enough truck to make the move in one trip. I was assured that he would look at the move and logistics and adjust accordingly. One week out from the move, I reminded Brett that if he sent a 26ft truck, all of our belongings would not fit (tried that recently, see above). So what does Bekins NW do, they send a 26ft truck for a move from Ellensburg to Yakima. Crew obviously knew they weren't going to fit everything and resigned themselves to at least a two trip move (oh by the way, time on a local move is by the hour). So that cost more to move us, funny how that works out. Crew actually had a driver who was licensed to drive a bigger truck but was told too bad, use the smaller truck. These guys worked from 7:30 AM to 12:30 AM to finish the move and still did not get everything. I went to the office the next day to talk to management, but Kris was not available. I was told he was going to call me to discuss my displeasure, he never did. The office listened but could not/would not do anything other than listen. Did I say that I moved furniture during college for a big name national mover? So I know how to load a truck and how to size up what is needed. That was also told to Brett, but he did not listen. No one seems to listen at Bekins NW. Bottom line (I could be wrong but I do not think this happened only with me) they over promise and severely under deliver. Ownership should not be surprised by this review. I gave you all the chances to follow up and you did not. We both lost on this one.
Response by Bekins Northwest: George, we are very sorry to hear about your experience. We have passed on your feedback to Executive Management to review.

The mover came and stayed on task all day in spite of the fact the temps were in the 100's.

They were awesome. Nothing was broken, they were polite and hooked everything back up. They even reassembled my furniture. They constantly communicate with you and if they forget anything they will quickly correct the mistake. Even the drivers were incredibly polite and a pleasure to work with.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
