Things to keep in mind for your Portland move

  • Parking Permits:

FAQs for Portland movers

How do I find a reputable Portland mover?

There are many things you should look for in a mover to ensure they’re reputable such as:

  • A good reputation: Whether they’re a new family-owned business or a large van lines company with years of experience, a good reputation is absolutely essential.
  • Dispute resolution: If the mover has many unresolved customer complaints, steer clear. All movers will eventually have some mishaps, but it’s the handling of these moments that show the company’s true colors.
  • Experience for your move: Even a professional mover with amazing reviews for local moves may struggle to handle a cross-country move. Make sure the company has adequate experience for your particular needs.

Fortunately, the Portland movers on this list all pass this checklist with flying colors and have been hand selected by our experts at moveBuddha.

What is the cheapest day to hire a mover?

If you’ve asked yourself this question, congratulations. You’re asking the right questions to save money on your move. Typically, the earlier you book your move the better.
Avoiding weekends, holidays, and the summer will typically give you the best price on your move.

Shopping for the lowest quote is typically a bad idea since many companies will take your move for the lowest cost only for the price to end up doubling on the actual move day!

Do Portland movers offer storage?

Yes, depending on your storage needs most moving companies in Portland do offer both short and long-term storage units.

However, while some have their own storage facilities, others don’t, in which case they may store your items at a third-party warehouse. It’s always worth asking about storage facilities and getting quotes when screening prospective movers early on in the moving process.

Should you use your mover's storage solutions?
