Moving Cost Seattle

How Much Does it Cost to Move Locally in Seattle?

Move in Seattle

If you’ve been in Seattle for a while, you probably have a favorite coffee shop (the city is known for its quality brews) and have gotten used to the rainy weather. There’s also a possibility that you’ve heard about or participated in the No Pants Light Rail Ride, where passengers take the subway in their underwear (yes, it’s actually a thing). There’s also a naked pumpkin run that is held in Seattle each October.

Even if these activities aren’t your thing, there’s still a lot to do in the city. Seattle is also home to Harbor Island, which is the largest man-made island in the U.S., and there are lots of outdoor activities there for your family to enjoy. While you may be planning a move to a more traditional home in Seattle, you can also consider getting a houseboat, since the city has the country’s largest community of them.
