Our normal working hours are from 7 AM until 7 PM. After our closing times, we offer our movers an overtime rate which is passed along to you. The increase will only be applied to moves that go more than 30 minutes over the normal working time.
To combat any additional hourly charges, and burning out our fabulous moving crews, we have 2-3 time slots available for customers who are thinking the length of moves may take a full day.

While we do sometimes have availability for short notice moves, we would prefer a booking to be made in 72 hours or greater for local moves.

We have a handy moving checklist that can be found by following this link
We will bring all relevant tools, dollies and moving pads to make your move as simple as possible. We do recommend having extra shrink wrap (plastic wrapping) and tape. We also recommend having a couple boxes handy in case there are things needing to be boxed up last minute.
PDX – We Love Moving Portland!
What is different about Portland-Move? We have our hometown in mind with every move.
Moving Companies produce massive amounts of waste:
New boxes, large gas guzzling trucks, environmentally toxic and non renewable products/packaging… To us, it is a huge mess and we weren’t doing enough to decrease our effect on the planet.
Our focus is and has been decreasing the waste that is so apparent in the industry while offering the best service possible.
Whenever the chance falls upon us, we find and utilize recycled products, recommend and use well-maintained rental truck fleets and offer low VOC products for packing and moving your home.
Every effort counts and we truly enjoy where we live. We want to keep it beautiful and open to all who wish to enjoy living here.
Work with and trust us with your move and help us try to make a difference in how our industry affects our planet.
Get prepared for your move.
