Schedule a Free Estimate Appointment

As professional, experienced movers, an essential step in our move process is looking at the household items you will be moving and checking the access to your home. This evaluation will help us to provide you with an accurate moving cost and ensure we are prepared for moving day. We have three FREE options to collect this information and obtain a moving quote: a self-service walk-through, a live virtual walk-through (video chat), or an in-home walk-through with one of our experienced representatives.

Also known as Corporate Moving Systems.

Local Movers

Moving down the street or across town, CMS has decades of experience moving customers locally. Large or small, we have the expertise and resources to get you to and from where you need to go. A local Seattle move is defined as a move within 50 miles of the city of Seattle. . . Hiring local movers can offer a cost-benefit that provides you with time savings and a stress-free moving experience. Our local team can help customize your move to fit you and your family’s specific needs, including but not limited to loading, unloading, transportation, packing, unpacking, short or long-term storage, and debris removal. The first step is to have a representative look at everything you are moving; we offer virtual, and in-person estimate appointments. You will then receive an accurate, written moving quote with costs based on the size and scope of your move and quoted at an hourly labor rate for the men and hours needed to complete your move.

Long Distance Movers

A cross-country, long-distance, or interstate move is defined as a move that crosses state lines. CMS has been moving customers cross-country for decades. Our experience, expertise, and national footprint allow us to deliver premium, customized moving services. . . exceeding customers’ expectations. Moving is one of the top five most stressful life events and hiring a professional mover can help alleviate a good amount of the stress that comes with moving. Hiring movers to do the heavy lifting, packing, and transportation will help save you both stress and time. As you prepare for moving your family across the country, be sure you are doing your research to find a reputable mover with experience and know-how to make a move less stressful, not more stressful.

The cost of a long-distance move is determined by the weight and mileage of the move. The best way to collect accurate moving quotes is to schedule appointments for virtual or in-home walk-throughs to ensure the company quoting you has the complete picture and scope of the move to provide an accurate cost. On moving day, the last thing you want is unexpected delays or charges.

Storage Movers

In addition to local or long-distance moving services, CMS offers an array of storage solutions to help fit your customized moving needs. Our state-of-the-art warehouse can hold your household goods for short- and long-term storage plans. Your household goods will be loaded safely and securely. . . into wooden vaults and stacked within our warehouse. Each storage vault holds approximately 1,000 lbs. of household goods which equates to about one bedroom’s worth. The need for storage can differ from customer to customer, and some may need to store goods between pickup and delivery, to stage a home to sell, or more long-term storage for items that they do not need at their residence but aren’t quite ready to part with. No matter the reason for your storage needs, we can create a plan that makes the most sense for your needs.

International Movers

Preparing for an international move involves more moving parts than moving locally or across the country. International moving includes a new home, new culture, and a long paper trail for customs clearance. CMS has been assisting families with global moving needs for years. . . Our team is educated, experienced, and well-versed in the entire process and will be sure to relieve the stress you have surrounding the relocation. Every CMS customer is assigned a dedicated moving relocation specialist who will be your single point of contact throughout the relocation process.

Employee Relocation

As you prepare to move your employees you want a company you can trust. CMS has partnered with several corporations as their dedicated mover. Our hardworking team will work closely with everyone to create a customized move plan. Contact us today to hear more about our corporate solutions.

Small Container Moves

Small moves should be treated differently, and we have a great solution to do just that. Our container moves, also known as Snapmoves have been created as a long-distance, interstate moving solution for 1–2-bedroom homes or just a few items. Snapmoves offers an easy, safe, and affordable solution. Great fit if you need short-term storage.

This is the second time we've used CMS for our moves within the Puget Sound Region--so that should say a lot. Great experience and we were fortunate to get Bastri and his moving team again! Nothing broken or damaged. Trevor did a great job estimating pricing, providing explanations and scheduling. Toni was great with additional office support and checked in each day. Our heartfelt thanks for all the coordination--yes, "logistics" was handled very well indeed!
Dave P.
Great experience, moved my Hundred year old Piano with no problems, took really good care of it start to finish. Guys were professional and courteous. Highly recommend and will certainly use there services again.
Donna H.
Katy and her team made the moving process smooth and simple. I just have to thank you for all attention and dedication I was treated
Juliana B.
We had the opportunity for both teams to come out and pack up our house goods and deliver it. Both teams were extremely professional and some of the nicest people. I had the pleasure to meet the owner, Bastri who is an owner operator. He didn’t stand back and let his mean do work, instead he jumped in and worked just as hard as his partner. They were the sweetest and nicest people I have ever met. I wish I could give a bigger star count because 5 does not seem enough. Absolutely loved having them and they moved in such a quick time frame. The entire pickup was 5 hours and the entire delivery was 3. Bastri made sure that he would not leave unless every piece of furniture was to our exact liking. If we ever move, I will be sure to have them come again.
Evan G.
All around very friendly and great service!
Jonathan L.
Hassle free experience with my recent long distance move. All my stuff was well taken care of during the move and arrived in great condition. Everyone in the team is top notch.
Palani
I’m really glad I went with CMS for my recent cross-country move. My belongings arrived on time and without a scratch. The crews on both ends were courteous, professional, and quick. Customer service was engaged and supportive. Moving is never easy, but CMS presented one less problem to deal with.
Don C.
👍👍👍👍👍
Juan Carlos D.
Great customer service!
Jerry A.
Toni Reed is so great to work with! They are very professional as well.
Rahim S.
My company contracted with CMS for a short term relocation. CMS is very professional and i cannot say enough good things about their mover, Bastri. He was super fast, thorough, cleaned up well, and even FIXED MY BED that Wayfair put together wrong back in April. Not only did Bastri fix my bed, he bought the parts he would need from Ace hardware on his own dime! Incredible individual and i highly recommend CMS. Ask for Bastri!
Theresa C.
I was helped by Toni, who took the time to make sure my move was successful.
Aaron Y.
Making a move across the state with elderly parents and a dog, isn't easy but with Toni and the team, the process was made much easier. She was very responsive to any questions or concerns we had and checked in frequently to ensure all was going well and we were happy. Additionally, Bastri and his team of movers (Henry and Joe) were very kind, considerate and helpful. They were very careful with our belongings and showed up when promised. I would recommend CMS for anyone needing to make a move.
maggie W.
Short and sweet, Rex, Toni, and the entire CMS team made the process of moving cross country a little less stressful. They provided updates on when the moving truck would arrive and get to the final destination.I would highly recommend using CMS to make your next move. No complaints!
Mick N.
Outstanding experience moving with CMS. The teams packed and moved with care. This was our second time using CMS for a move, and the first time was such a great experience, we did not bother looking anywhere else for our latest move. Toni and Celia and team were fantastic to work with and always checked in ensuring a smooth process. Highly recommend!
Ian S.
Bastri and his team were simply amazing! They worked efficiently but carefully to pack our home and did it all with a smile. They were super caring asking us to let them know if we needed help with anything, and they continually checked in with us regarding items to pack/not pack etc. Bastri and his team were super conscientious and went the extra mile to make sure we were kept at ease while they worked. They were also very good with our two Golden Retrievers! This team meticulously covered the floors and door jambs and came prepared to get the job done. Our move was only two hours south, and we had to place our things in storage. And believe me when I say that we are looking forward to seeing Bastri again when he helps us move from storage to our new house! We enthusiastically recommend Bastri and CMS to anyone looking for movers.
MH S.
Exceptional Service by CMS Relocation. We moved from Washington to Ohio and had a 4 month delay with storage because of construction delays. CMS handled the entire process without flaw. Toni Reed was a real pro at keeping us informed. All of our furniture came through without any damage whatsoever. Great move. Thank you.
Fred T.
Recently had CMS move me across the state, and I was very happy with thier level of service! Michael and Bastri did a great job helping me move in and were very friendly and professional. Great job guys!
Brandon B.
Moving is stressful and I dreaded the fact that I had to move cross country from Seattle to the Hudson Valley in New York. and needed to store my stuff for a while. Katy and Celia were so responsive and helpful and made the process as painless as possible, especially when things did not go according to plan on my end. The crews on the Seattle side were very careful with my belongings and the New York crew was equally good. I can only warmheartedly recommend CMS.
Beate L.
Good people, need a mover, help to pack your house.
Brenda D.
This review is for Bastri and crew at CMS in Kent, WA. I cannot say enough about how good this team is. Their attention to detail when preparing to move my furniture into my home was incredible. In addition to covering floors and door jams, they even covered areas of the ceiling that had the potential to be bumped by moving furniture. No wall, corner or ceiling was ever bumped… but all was covered up just in case.The crew gives off the most positive attitude and energy while carrying in WAY too much furniture and WAY too many boxes They are conscientious about making sure it goes in the correct room. They are willing to rearrange furniture if you don’t like the initial placement. And they are friendly and smiling through all of it.They came back the next day to ensure that everything was good, and that I didn’t need anything else moved. Note the comment above about way too much furniture? They even came back with a smaller truck and helped my husband move furniture and boxes to a storage unit because it didn’t fit in my house. Talk about going above and beyond to make sure your customer is happy!!!Do yourself a favor when moving… request Bastri and crew from CMS in Kent!
Nancy L.
Great move of possessions and car from west to east coast. Packed up on time and quickly. All delivered on time and with no damage! Great job
Janet C.
Bastri and his team were, by far, the best movers we’ve ever had. Professional, careful, considerate and friendly. HIGHLY recommend!!!
Anisha J.
Bastri and his team did a fantastic job on our recent move! Their attention to detail in protecting both our furniture and the walls/floors in our home was top notch. I had put aside my grandmother's antique desk for us to move ourselves - I've never let a mover touch it. But I was so impressed by Bastri and his team, that I asked them to move it. The desk, as well as all our other furniture and items, arrived without a scratch. If you are looking for the best, Bastri and his team are it!
Emily W.
Incredible Team Door to Door ! Efficient, polite, responsive, on time, great value.
kelly D.
Bastri and his entire team (8 people over 4 days) really deliver the goods when it comes to top notch service! We’ve moved 7 times - both internationally and within the U.S. - but this household move stands out for the exceptionally well trained people, their attention to detail, and how pleasant they have made our move. As we settle in to our new home, we won’t forget United and CMS. Thanks everyone!
Marcia B.
We are relieved we chose this professional moving company based on their excellent reviews. We didn't bother getting an estimate from another company since we felt comfortable with them after scheduling and receiving a reasonable estimate. Everything went smoothly, from the timely, detailed, in-home estimate by Rex, to the thorough office communication with Katy, as well as the goods being carefully packed and arriving in good condition, in a timely manner. We were kept up to date throughout the process through both email and phone by Katy in the office, and Wes; the truck driver/manager of ground operations.Wes was very organized. Our boxes and other belongings (even the bed parts) were labeled with numbers and recorded in detail. Pieces that couldn't be boxed were wrapped for protection when packed into the truck, and numbers were checked off a list upon arrival. Wes and his crews were personable and careful, and very thankful for the food, drinks and gratuity we provided.Our experience with CMS proved them to be honest, kind and reliable. Moving to the East Coast from the West Coast was a huge undertaking. CMS's integrity made our moving experience much less stressful than it could have been, judging by what I read in some negative reviews of other companies.We would definitely use CMS again!
Lisa C.
Bastri and Ibrahim are a hardworking, professional and friendly team who made the delivery of our household items a breeze!
Denise B.
I have been here twice. Both times in and out within an hour. 👍
Paul K.
Moving staff was friendly and responsive. They arrived within the stipulated time frame and packed all items with ample packaging material. Also had good conversations with the staff during the packing process.
Akshay D.
love CMS!! THEY ARE THE BEST MOVING COMPANY OUT THERE! EVERYONE THAT WORKS IN ALL LEVELS THERE FROM THE DISPATCH TO DRIVERS TO THE HELPERS, PACKERS, WAREHOUSE PEOPLE AND OFFICE AND ABOVE... ALL DO AN AMAZING JOB! I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER!
Baby “.
Bastri & crew are excellent movers, communicators and quick , honest, and efficient. Very courteous team and they made this house move-in a lot of fun, despite the large amount of work associated with a move in. The inventory system came back 100% accounted for and they assembled all of the major furniture etc. I didn’t have to lift a finger . A+ top tier movers, I do recommend.
Tim E.
Bastri and Ibrahim were awesome. Quick, careful, and super helpful. Highly recommend!
Philip D.
Bashti and Aaron were amazing at unloading and setting up my HHG shipment. 15 military moves and I have never experienced a kinder, more careful, or more efficient crew. They meticulously protected my home and explained the process every step of the way, while always checking in to make sure I was satisfied or had any questions or concerns. I have never written an online review but felt compelled to do so after receiving such amazing care from these two gentleman. My most sincere thanks for such a wonderful experience.
Suzanne M.
This company was amazing. I have moved a few times and this was the best (two corporate moves, one I hired and one I did myself). The pack was fast and very well done the load was done just as fast and unloaded in a few hours and things reassembled and placed where we asked them to. They even moved things around the way we wanted them. I even had a long drive and they were very professional not to drive in the grass. I would use them again in an instant.
Dave H.
Bastri and Ibrahim at CMS moved, unpacked, and set up the rental home into which my fiancee and I recently moved. Both Bastri and Ibrahim were professional, careful, fast, and very personable. They moved all of our things, even heavy, oversized, and fragile goods, perfectly and without any damage. This was our first move with hired professional movers, so we didn't really know what to expect, and were blown away by the level of service we received. Not only did they move our items, but they also talked to us about the house, its layout, and how we would want out furniture and things set up, and then absolutely made it happen. Finally, both Bastri and Ibrahim were really great guys and just a pleasure to be around and chat with. We will definitely keep this team in mind for any future moves!
Neel N.
Bastri is one of the most professional, courteous, and respectful movers I've ever worked with. He went above and beyond to ensure that he treated all of my items with incredible care. Would highly recommend!
Chad H.
We had setup up and organized the items to be packed and shipped for the day. The crew that arrived quickly and efficiently packed all items into the boxes and arranged them in the truck. The whole crew were friendly and professional in what they were doing and I appreciate that a lot. Would recommend to anybody that needs a company for international moves/packing
Albert H.
I have moved about 20 times and this is, by far, the best experience I have ever had. From the sales associate, Trevor Joss, to the administrator, Toni Reed, to my amazing, excellent driver Bastri, and the others who were with him, Aaron and Souli, I just cannot say enough good things! I was treated politely and respectfully by everyone. Bastri and his crew were extremely careful with my furnishings, and took such care to protect my floors and door frames. If I could give 100 stars, I would.
sherri M.
Excellent service! Fast and didn’t break a single item! I’ve worked as a mover and some items are expected to be broken in a move. Although efforts are made to prevent it from happening, it just does sometimes. Sales rep responded quickly to my calls and answered any questions I had. The movers were friendly and showed respect for my household items. As a former mover (not with this company) I highly recommend!!!
single N.
Great job!
Bryce B.
Very nice there
Lester N.
Bastri and his associates were punctual, extremely efficient, friendly and respectful. I was impressed with their work and will use them in the future and would recommend them highly to anyone in need of their services.
Elizabeth R.
Moving cross country was a stressful time for us. However, Our coordinator, Toni Reed, was very professional, available and reassuring during the entire process. The drivers and team of workers assigned to load and unload were also professional and worked hard to assist us. At the end, very sastified with our choice of relocation company. They were on time and also flexible when it was needed. Thank you.
Larry E.
Great crew, kept us informed all the way. Nothing was too much trouble. Professional. Super impressed with the efforts they went to protecting floors walls and furniture. Worth every penny.
Lyn C.
Great people but parking is a small challenge.
ZM J.
Very nice people..let me drop off a lot of used packing
Inda R.
It was 👍
Juan V.
I have years of experience with relocating, inclusive of overseas to and from Germany. This company and their crew was definitely the best of all of them!-They arrived at the start of the window we were given.-They took the time to protect the flooring/carpets with plastic and foam/rubber based runners (including the stairs) wrapped the corners of the walls where the items would pass, explained in detail the process, reassembled the furniture, did a pre and post walkthrough to ensure all items were placed and reassembled to our satisfaction!-They were so very courteous and professional.and what great teamwork from all three members (Bastri, Ibrahim, and Aaron)!!-They worked hard and fast but treated our items with such amazing care!!!- They are shining examples and definitely there absolute best in their field!!!- They also we’re so very professional and efficient when removing the packing and boxes!!!They are THE BEST!!!
Noworries T.
CMS was efficient, professional, and showed us and our items great care and respect. I would recommend them to anyone moving in the area.
Calvin F.
Bastri & Ibrahim moved my family into our new home today. Coming from California and moving with a 1 year old baby, it would be an understatement to say my wife and I were already stressed before even thinking about our stuff. Bastri & Ibrahim moved our furniture, sentimental items, clothes, and everything else in quickly, all while ensuring the safety of our home, protecting our wood floors, and ensuring nothing was scuffed or scratched.I have moved from Illinois to Wisconsin, to Minnesota, to Colorado, to California, and now Washington, and I can honestly say that Bastri & Ibrahim have been the best! The two of them worked more quickly and efficiently than I have seen other groups of four! Would highly recommend them for anyone who is doing a move and wants it done right.
Joseph P.
The best moving company in Seattle. Awesome people go above and beyond
Todd C.
We’re a military family of 6 and this was our 11th move in 16 years. This crew (Bastri, Michael, & Aaron) were the best unpackers we have ever had. They were running our boxes up the stairs! They showed up on time and were both professional AND friendly. They moved my furniture into the spots I wanted.They assembled beds, bikes, tables (even an unusual bench seat/table combo from Germany that has frustrated more than one moving crew). None of our furniture or boxes were damaged, plus they took extra precautions before beginning to protect the house, so no damage to walls, floors, or doors. I would highly recommend this crew.
Nicole D.
I saw Bastri and Aaron help out one of my neighbors with their move into the neighborhood and was totally blown away by by the speed at which they unloaded the truck. I asked Bastri for his details for my upcoming move and called him before the move and got his availability. He arrived on time along with his colleague Aaron, and since we had most of the things packed they loaded the truck at the speed of light. They were able to pack a 5BR house in the truck in under 2 hours. This guy Bastri is a super human. I couldn't believe the speed at which he was operating. He would put the energizer bunny to shame. Once we reached at the destination, they rolled out the carpet on the hardwood floors and cling wrap on the stairs and on the carpeted common areas to avoid doing any damage to floors. Both Bastri and Aaron swiftly unloaded the truck in about 90 minutes and put all the items in the rooms we requested and more importantly without any damage to any of the items.I will definitely recommend these guys 100% and will use them again if/whenever I move.
Prabh D.
Bastri & crew packed, picked up and delivered our household goods for an in-state move of about 3 hours. They were so much better than any other moving company I have used. They were on time, very professional and took excellent care of my furniture and property, including going way above and beyond with protecting the floors and doorways, etc.On arrival, they really hustled and had everything in the house and re-assembled within 6 hours. They were very particular about where I wanted each item and took great care in setting up my furniture. I am extremely happy with how my move went!
Simone C.
Bastri and Aaron were the best! We moved from Boston to Seattle and were eager to get our belongings after waiting 10 days. Imagine your ideal moving situation and this was it! They introduced themselves when they arrived, taped down the floors, and asked for a tour of the home to figure out where the boxes should go. The kicker is that they moved an upright Yamaha piano up a huge flight of outdoor stairs without any problems (and we've seen firsthand how piano moves can go wrong). We had at least 10 boxes of glassware and dishware and NOTHING BROKE. Bastri and Aaron were clear communicators, professional, efficient, and extremely experienced. Stress-free cross country moves do happen!!!
Angela F.
So professional. Packed and unpacked. Remember to offer them something to drink...even water can make their day!
j w
Bastri and Aaron were amazing. They were extremely courteous, professional, and personable. They really went beyond just delivering our stuff. 5 stars!
Gonçalo V.
There are no words to express how amazing this company is! From start to finish they were professional and courteous and provided true white glove service! Quick and efficient, they made sure every piece of furniture was reassembled and place in the right spot. I would recommend anyone to use CMS!! Thank you Toni for keeping me updated and answering all my questions in a timely fashion! Even though I moved across the country, you and the team made it the easiest move of my life! Thank you so much again!!
Flavia L.
The team worked very quickly and efficiently.
Nicholas T.
Extremely friendly and to care of everything, including helping me unpack all the boxes and organize everything. Packed up and unpacked in the same day with a 3 hour drive from point A to B.

Great experience moving with CMS relocation. Basri and Michael were great to work with and took care to make sure that the process was as stress free as possible. Highly recommend!
Stephanie G.
Good people
Kevin W.
The folks at CMS were professional, responsive, friendly and efficient. They made a stressful move much better by giving us the confidence that they would do a good job, and then following through. I am highly impressed with them, and would recommend them to anyone. They have a great team, who are very flexible and know what they're doing. Our final cost ended up being quite a bit lower than their estimate, which was a nice surprise. Packing is never fun, so give yourself a break and hire CMS. It costs a lot, but it's totally worth it.
Tim M.
I cannot tell enough people about how great this company is. I have lived in eight different states and moved so many times. This, by far was the best moving experience I've ever had. They were on time, overly cautious with every box and piece of furniture that they moved, whether it was fragile or not. While we did end up with one missing item, they immediately worked to replace it. The movers were super friendly, organized, and were so professional! Please choose this company, because they deserve your business and will not let you down.
Kimberlee W.
Great service, If you need to move they are the ones to call!
Robert B.
As a (retired) military wife I have had more moves than I can count during 25 years of active duty and then several moves afterward.This move was the best ever. The young men were on time, courteous, and super efficient. They listened to us and did what we wanted. They protected floors and cleaned up meticulously. They said their job was to please. And they were fun!On a 10 point scale, I would rate them a 15.
Pat G.
We recently moved from Port Orchard to Bonney Lake and all I can say about this company and team is AMAZING. They were the kindest employees I have ever dealt with and the administrative side of the move was beyond easy. They arrived exactly when they said they would, packed efficiently while maintaining the highest level of care for my possessions and went above and beyond for unpacking into our new house while it was just my wife and son with them. I have never moved anything before other than a car full of stuff and yet somehow this was a better experience. I will continue to recommend this company and I will definitely use them for any future moves in my life. This is a shining example of a golden company.
