Alki – Local and long distance moving companies
Also is a peninsular neighbourhood of Alki Point. It is located as west as you can go in the West Seattle district of Seattle, Washington.
It was called ‘Prairie Point’ by the Duwamish and the land was once a place of native occupation. In addition, other names for the point are Battery Point, Roberts Point and Me-Kwah-Mooks Point.
When the Denny Party landed here in 1851, they named the area New York Alki.
Alki is a word in Chinook Jargon meaning ‘by and by or ‘eventually’.
One of the things Alki is most famous for are numerous concerts at Alki Beach.
This tradition dates from the early 1900s. Now, the beach is a host to the Seattle Music Fest that happens in August every year.
Needless to say, Alki beach is the most loved tourist attraction. With sand, bungalows, walking trails, sunbeds and of course, many local restaurants. From here you can see the Olympic mountains and downtown Seattle. During the summer weekends, it is usually crowded, so keep that in mind. Other interesting things to see are the view of Blake Island, Alki Point Lighthouse, miniature Statue of Liberty and many more. It also is a home of the Birthplace of Seattle monument that includes a people tribute to the Indigenous Duwamish people.
When it comes to the Denny Monument it is also located at Alki Beach.
One of the most important landmarks is Alki Point Lighthouse that was built in 1913 and it is operable to this date.
Another attraction are the bungalows that are lined alonged Harbor Avenue. Some of the homes were built in the 1860s and they are truly breathtaking.
There are a plethora of public parks in the neighborhood. One of the oldest ones is Hamilton Viewpoint Park that was founded in 1954 and it is located above Alki Beach. Another beautiful park is Schmitz PArk the only old-growth forest in Seattle.

Mark and Alex just moved ALL of my things from Ballard to Queen Anne and they were EXCELLENT! I had this couch in storage that they had to take the legs off of just to get it out of the unit. Then they finagled it into the room somehow - they are moving wizards! HIGHLY RECOMMEND these guys!
What a great group of guys! Hard workers great attitudes all around nice guys! I appreciate all the hard work and treatment of all my stuff as if it was your stuff! Wouldn't think twice to use this company and this group of guys again! Thanks again guys.
We had an awesome experience with this company. We needed movers on pretty short notice and they worked us into their schedule. Their rates are very reasonable-especially if you pay in cash. Our movers were Mark, Alex, and Yedil, and they were all friendly and super efficient but still very careful with our things. I still cannot believe how quickly and smoothly the whole process went. Would definitely hire these guys again!
