Eco Movers was born out of a desire to change old, harmful moving practices with a fresh environmentally-friendly approach. We’ve grown into Seattle’s premiere sustainable moving company, and Google’s No. 1 mover in Washington state. Our thousands of pleased clients tell the story best, as a quarter of our business comes from return customers.
Eco Movers opened its current headquarters in Queen Anne in 2016, including our first storage facility. The fleet of trucks grew, adding new certified clean-idle vehicles. The warehouse allows us to ramp up our earth-friendly practices. We offer reusable wardrobe boxes in all our trucks for your convenience, and have thousands of reusable moving boxes to reduce cardboard use.
Eco Movers began dispatching trucks at north and south satellite locations in summer 2018, and merged with The Big Guys Home Delivery in January 2019, expanding to a second brick-and-mortar location in Woodinville to serve Seattle’s Eastside.

We use both email and telephone to contact customers prior to moving day and can text customers at your convenience. If you’d rather text to start the booking process, just click the green Podium logo in the lower right-hand corner of your screen.
We offer both morning and afternoon time slots. Our typical morning appointments are within an arrival window of 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., with afternoon windows of 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Appointment times, especially afternoon appointments, may vary depending on our morning schedule. If you have specific timing needs — such as elevator or loading dock reservations — we will work to make arrangements you.
Once you have booked with Eco Movers, we will send an appointment confirmation within 24 hours of scheduling your move. This email will include detailed information about your move: the date, rate, crew size, locations and any other notes on moving day. It also includes a link to update your inventory list, which helps ensure our crews are fully prepared to serve you.
Before Your Move
Two or three days before your scheduled moving day, an Eco Movers representative will touch base with you to see if there are any last-minute arrangements or changes you would like to make before your upcoming move. We know moving can be very stressful, so if there is anything you need let us know and we will do our very best to accommodate your needs.
At this point, we’ll remind you to update your inventory and choose your valuation level.
We are port-to-port, which means hourly billing starts once the movers have left our warehouse. Your movers will park the truck at the nearest legal position closest to your home or office. Learn how to reserve parking by visiting our moving guide.
Your crew leader will take inventory of access points and the items to be moved, and confirm details on the job summary, before going over the bill of lading. You will need to sign the estimate and bill of lading before work can begin.
Our crews are fully-equipped with hand trucks, at least 50 top-quality professional moving pads, two furniture dollies, shrink wrap, moving straps and a full tool kit for easy assembly and disassembly of beds and other furniture. Your movers will make every effort possible to protect your home by laying floor protection.
