Martin and Nate were amazing and did a fabulous job. They were prepared, hard-working, organized, and respectful of my wishes as well as careful with my property.

It appeared they did a good job getting things packed but I was not there all the time. Once the pods were at destination and unpacked I found a lot of damage.

I had two different crews come out on two consecutive days as we did not have everything ready for the first day. Both crews were very helpful and nice.

Love Sal and Jesus. They arrived on time, worked for 3 hours without stopping and managed to surprise everyone with how much they got into our 16' container. It was like watching artists at work! We have made many domestic and international moves over the years and these two rank with the best we've seen.
They did a great job! They seemed knowledgeable on how to load the container and filled it up completely. It was amazing how much they were able to pack in there. Thank you for the great service. They were on time and worked efficiently. I would definately use you again!!!
These men were on there way home (our scheduled movers were a no show) after a long day and got our call. They came strait away and busted out our move in no time!!! Portland movers to the rescue!

Ofcourse, it was a messy job all the way thru!!....DO NOT HIRE FROM THIS COMPANY
The guys that you sent were awesome they were nice and very efficient worked really hard to help me with this move I have alerady recommend you guys and will do the same for anyone who needs help I will be in touch when it is time to unload THANKS FOR THE HELP
I needed a 300 lb dual-sink vanity moved from the garage to the upstairs master bath.

Initially we had an issue. I had only given my landline phone number, and the co.sent texts on that line which I didn't receive, so the movers didn't arrive as scheduled. After a phone call, they arrived 2hrs.later. The two movers sent were excellent. A great team., one walked thru the house with me and got the initial plan.

I will need movers again to unload the POD, so hope I can get the same two gentlemen. I would recommend them. Just make sure you give the co.both phone numbers, in case they text you.
Our movers were named Martin & Rueban and they did a fantastic job moving our business. They worked quickly and asked questions regarding priorities and preferences. Frankly, they were magicians because they were able to fit everything into the Pod and I had serious doubts it would all make it. We had a very positive experien…Read Morece with Portland Movers Ready.
Showed up on time. They worked hard, and smart. Booked 4 guys, to do 2 hours. And they actually finished everything early. Even with moving a piano. They did ding the front door, moving the piano out, but I got a 20% refund due to the damage. Felt Ok about that. I'd use them again. My only surprise was how the dispatcher…Read More (? don't know who it was) was direct/brief to a fault. Made me a bit nervous about who would show up, and what that quality would be like. They could really use someone with stronger customer service skills in welcoming me as a customer. Giving me confidence that everything was going to go great.
Not great. In my 20s I could EASILY do the work of ALL 3 slow guys. Not athletes, not exercise buffs, and not energetic. We hire blind, expect us to criticize blind also. Not in shape, not strong, from the looks of it, I thought we were going to a buffet not moving heavy things. 5 hours for a 2 bedroom. Pathetically slow. I've l…Read Moreoaded a truck MYSELF in less time. EASILY. Good luck with stumble bumble and whoops. Hire 3 immigrants for 10$ an hour and save yourself 2/3rds the money. Remember to clean the black marks off the wall and repair all the scratches and divots in the drywall. TERRIBLE. Random goofy fat asses wandering in my house. Not in shape. Not who I would hire AT ALL. Sad. TERRIBLY SLOW. Not qualified. Not trained. Not smart. These are NOT YOUR WEIGHT LIFTERS. Don't have any OAK. Don't have anything actually heavy. I guess anyone can be a mover. For this company. Never again.Show Response

Hello this is in regards to "Hire A Helper" Ruben & Martin we're great helpers very conscientious about their job and placed everything where I asked them to I would definitely rehire them I know I called the right company.

Jesus and Martine are amazing! Very polite and respectful. They came on time, did a quick assessment of the move and busted out the entire 2 bedroom apartment in 2 hours. They pack the POD full and got everything in. I would highly recommend these two gentlemen. Fantastic!
I hired, and paid for two movers for three hours. When they arrived, they were obnoxious, and refused to listen to direction, insisting on doing things their way, such as dragging furniture legs on the floor, rather than picking up the items and moving them properly. One mover talked on his hand held mobile phone for about a hal…Read Moref hour. They didn’t put things where they were asked/told, doing everything the sloppy and fast way. While I paid for three hours, they rushed the job so they could leave an hour early to meet with someone they arraigned to meet while they were on the job moving me into my new home. My furniture took a beating as these guys did a sloppy careless job.
Our movers were very helpful in loading our POD, but I thought they were going to also pack up our apartment. It was a little frustrating when I asked them if they had brought supplies to pack up our kitchen and they said they hadn't because we hadn't requested that they bring them. Maybe it was a mistake on our part but I don't…Read More remember anything while reserving movers that said we needed to request moving supplies (such as bubble wrap and boxes). We just had the movers load the things that were ready into the POD, and then we were up all night trying to figure out how to best pack our breakables. We just didn't get the service I thought we were getting. But they were very helpful in the hard labor of carrying boxes and furniture to our POD.
We loved these guys!! Our POD arrived with a lock on the door that we did not put on - it was put on at the storage center (without our knowledge) where it was packed up (in another state) and we had no keys!! After panicking a bit, knowing Portland Movers was on their way to unpack the POD, my daughter called Jeff at Portland…Read More Movers explaining the situation, and could he help her. He helped her remove the lock and the guys moved everything out in a timely and professional manner. They went above and beyond given this unexpected stressful situation!
The Guys were 35 minutes late. I showed them around the house and explained what I wanted to see done. They got started right away. They had all the right equipment and where prepared to do for what ever was need for each piece of furniture. They stayed busy and did a good job. I did need them for longer then was expected. Excep…Read Moret for disagreement over the final bill, everything went well. I would definitely make sure of what all I was paying for before I used them again.
Jesus and Martin were amazing! We had two pods to pack and they were packing engineers when it came to packing it tightly and carefully. My husband couldn't stop talking about how efficient and masterful they were. We would highly recommend them. If we ever needed movers we would not only choose this company but would request Je…Read Moresus and Martin.
My two helpers came on short notice on Sunday morning and did a great job. They worked independently after I gave them a few instructions. I was able to focus on unpacking. They carried my furniture up approximately 20-25 steps and kept moving all of the time. I found no breakage and they helped put down carboard to protect…Read More wood flooring. I would definitely use them again.
I have used this company before and they were great. So efficient and so friendly. They were right on time. I had booked three men for 5 hours as we were moving from a storage locker and an apartment. Furniture had to be wrapped and disassembled prior to loading, They loaded all the items so quickly and carefully we got to …Read Morethe new house earlier than planned on. They had all the tools for the job and were prepared with extra wrapping pads, hand trucks and rolling carts. They treated our items like their own. They were extremely friendly too. So kind. And believe me they finished the job in 3 hours........so I got a credit for the time I had originally thought I needed. Without a doubt, I would hire this company again and hope to get Jesus, Martin Sr, and Martin Jr.
Portland Movers Ready unloaded our POD. They were about 15 minutes late, but they were very efficient and finish in less than the planned time. They did a great job moving everything in- they took a very heavy sleeper sofa and file cabinet up the stairs, no problem, and they were careful of the walls. We didn't have any super fr…Read Moreagile things, so I can't comment on that. They didn't wear booties to protect the carpet like many movers do, but it wasn't raining and they didn't leave any marks. We only used them to unload, so I can't comment on packing or loading. The cost was very reasonable. I'd use them again.
Jeff and his team did an excellent job of unloading the POD and assembling my furniture. They were very courteous and friendly. They treated my house and furniture with respect and were very careful as they were moving the items into the house. My only disappointment was after they left, I found some boxes that had been marke…Read Mored for specific rooms placed in my garage. I would highly recommend them as they were very efficient with their time and very responsible.
My two movers were on time, courteous and efficient! They treated my possessions and my house very carefully. In less than 2 hours they'd unloaded my 16 foot POD, placed all my furniture and boxes exactly, and put together two beds. Thank you Portland Movers Ready for a smooth move!
Very pleased with our move! They showed up on time, went right to work and worked steadily until the job was done. True professionals with impressive teamwork, they took good care of both our antiques and our junk! I would definitely use them again.
We have moved many times - large, small, nearby, and long distance. The team of Jesus and Ruben arrived exactly on time, were fully prepared to start work, worked very efficiently and safely, and did a wonderful job managing our possessions in and out of the truck and our new home. We would strongly recommend using this team. …Read More
These helpers were fantastic! They showed up on time, were very hard workers and treated my furniture with care.

I have already recommended them to a family member who is moving in the near future and would absolutely hire them again. I much prefer hiring the helpers and renting the truck myself, so this worked out perfect. Thank you!
From the moment Martin and Martin came in it was lets do this! They were professional and optimistic on getting my 3 bedroom apartment with a gun safe and treadmill in the the 16 ft pod. Honestly I thought NO WAY. HOW?! Well guess what they did! It was like puzzle pieces magically placed. Glass shelves and all protected. It was …Read Moreincredible. They were so fast. The only reason it took longer was because they dismantled my treadmill to fit thru my front door. They also put it back together. i highly recommend this company. Nice and respectful hard working!!!!!! They were on time worked hard and handled everything with care.
They did amazing. Showed up early (checked with me first), worked pretty much nonstop for 3 hours unloading my Upack trailer. Don't know how well they do with loading efficiently, since I only used them for unloading, but am willing to try them again for my next move.
Would use again!Great experience! They were on time, and worked very hard. I was sleep deprived and exhausted, but they came in with very positive and professional attitudes. I would definitely recommend them to everyone.You guys are AWESOME!!!!!
They did a good job of moving furniture. They were late but called to let us know. The only issue I had is that I had asked the company to remove a couple of large furniture pieces and donate them if possible. I was quoted an extra $5 per hour. I thought that was low but I was surprised when they were ready to leave and after…Read More being tipped, they asked for a dumping fee and extra driver time to remove the items even though there is a goodwill very nearby that accepts large furniture. The could have informed us on the phone prior to arrival of the extra charges since I did ask.
This young man and his partner were the best, most sincere, and hardest working helpers I can ever imagine. I have hired many types of professionals and THESE TWO MEN WERE THE BEST EVER!

Portland Movers Ready were terrific!

They have helped us twice during this move and both times I couldn't say enough good things about them. They worked hard and they were careful with our belongings. They knew how to pack things (put the puzzle together). They quite literally saved us! We would not have been done on time without them. The charges were very reason…Read Moreable, instead of thinking " ha! You need us, so we can gouge you!" This all means we would use them again and recommend them!
One helper did not grasp the concept of heavy items on the bottom and light items on top, so I had crushed boxes and had to constantly monitor that things did not get ruined or broken. I explained to him that he cannot put two 40 lb. boxes on top of my sewing machine, but he did not seem to care. I was extremely disappointed…Read More. I hired them for 3 hours and they thought they were finished at 2.5 hours. When I told them we needed to go get my washer and dryer with the U-Haul, one mile away at my mother's house, they were reluctant to finish the job. I told them I was paying them for 3 hours and I expected 3 hours of service. They did show up on time, but I would not use them again.
These guys were great. The showed up on time and got straight to work and knew exactly what they were doing with packing all my stuff. Im very confident it will be safe and sound with we unpack it on the other end of our move. Thx for all the help!!!! Will definitely recommend these movers in the future!
If there was a no star I would definitely give them a negative star. I have moved over 30 times across county and state and this is the worse company I have ever seen. I just hired them for two hours to load some heavy things, first they were 10 minutes late and they work very slowly carrying things that were light just killing …Read Moretime, and loading the trailer with light things that did not making any sense to me. Since they were hired to carry the heavy things. I asked if they had brought something to put down on the carpet and they yes but they never did, they walked in and out of the house bringing back in the dirt on the carpet. The worst thing is they carried my dresser down and broke off one of the legs and the proceeded to try and hammer it back on with out telling me.. I looked out the window to see the noise and once I saw what they had done along with scratching the wall on the way down the stairs and the floor, Then they drug my fridge across the trailer floor because neither one was strong enough to hold it up right... I called their boss Jeff and explained the problem of what was going on and his response was "oh you dont need them for more time" WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO CUSTOMER SERVICE?????? NO I AM SORRY WE WILL REIMBURSE YOU FOR DAMAGES NOTHING... THIS IS THE WORST COMPANY IN THE WORLD DO NOT HIRE THEM ... THE TWO GUYS THAT CAME WERE ONLY INTERESTED IN ME PAYING THEM, NOT IM SORRY NOTHING... THEY REMINDED ME OF THE MOVIE DUMB AND DUMBER!!!!! DO NOT HIRE THIS COMPANY UNPROFESSIONAL!! THIS WAS A WASTE OF MONEY FOR SURE.... THE GUYS IN THE PICTURES ARE DEFINITELY NOT THE GUYS WHO CAME TO MY HOUSE...
They did a great job. They were working hard and quickly. They were very respectful of our belongings. When moving large items they would communicate about the best way to protect the property and the walls. I would highly recommend them. The only negative thing I would mention is that they were running about 30 minutes late but…Read More it wasn't really an inconvenience to us and they called to let us know.
Chris and Tim did a very skillful job packing a 3 bedroom house into an 8x28' trailer. They were very conscientious of the house and furniture and got everything in with some room to spare. I was concerned it wouldn't all fit but they made it happen. Great job.

They were late and we were not impressed with them. The younger gentleman seemed to know what he was doing, But did not treat our furniture with the care we felt was appropriate. The older gentleman had no clue what he was doing. Spoke very little English and was exceptionally rough with our relatively new furniture.

Very experienced. I was worried about my big leather chairs and upright piano, and wondering if they could get the chairs and piano into the door. They took the door off and got the chairs in easily and they lay piano down on it's side and pushed piano into the room. Great job!
CHRIS AND RUBEN WERE ON TIME AND WERE WELL PREPARED FOR THE JOB.... THEY WORKED VERY HARD AND WERE VERY RESPECTFUL OF OUR WISHES AND OUR PROPERTY AND GOODS....... THEY COULD DO IT ALL AND WERE VERY EFFICIENT. WE WOULD DEFINITLY USE THEM AGAIN,,,,,, CARL & SHARON PORTLAND, OR........
They had a hard time finding the location so were late getting started although that wasn't a serious issue. Their work was excellent. They were careful in handling the items and took care not to damage anything in the house. They were both nice people and I would definitely use them again.
We've used professional moving labor helpers many times in the past and have usually been less than satisfied with the help that we got, so the 2 people who came to help us from Portland Movers Ready were a pleasant surprise. * They worked diligently and accomplished the job as quickly as one could reasonably expect. * We we…Read Morere amazed at how efficiently they packed things into our moving truck. * They took care to wrap our furniture so that would not get scraped or soiled. * They had a good attitude and were pleasant to work with.

Punctual, extremely polite. Fastidious about walls/carpets & property Had to make them stop for water break They were able to judge within half-inch large furniture placement i have moved all over the world & this father/son team were the best Recommend them to anyone Thank you
My family has used Hire a Helper 4 times in the last 2 months for moves and have been very pleased with the service with the exception of Portland Movers Ready.

didn't like the 3hr wait for helpers to arrive...cost me more than time and money, wasn't able to unload at storage because of the late hour. That was the schedulers fault. Guys were willing and able were good loaders, but with the late hour... my plan staging for unloading didn't happen, bummer.
I was in a terrible bind and needed help. I called and two strong polite men showed up in half an hour and moved everything nicely into the uhaul truck in one hour not even two ! Very happy with them. They worked very hard and safely. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

My husband broke his arm the night before our move scheduled for 7:00 am the next morning, and we were in the ER until midnight.

Portland Movers Ready showed up on time and ready to work. They had the necessary equipment to move heavy objects and were very conscience about not scratching or denting anything. I will know how well they packed up the POD when it comes time to unpack everything, but they worked well. I would use them again.
Were they on time? 25 minutes late, but did call ahead of time to let me know this Were they prepared for the job? yes Did they work hard? yes, very hard Were they respectful of your property and goods? yes Would you use them again? yes
First, they were on time. Second, they were polite. Third, they were very conscientious. Fourth, they broke nothing. Fifth, they didn't complain when they had to work long day. I feel they were very professional. I would use them and the service again.
Such an amazing job they were on time, they were completely available though I only called him that day and he called enough people so that would get the job done very quickly and very efficiently for my time as well. Best move I've ever done :)!!!

Martene and Tim showed up on time, worked two additional hours with only a 6 minute lunch break. Very professional, knew how to load our PODS correctly and worked very efficiently. We are moving across country or I would hire them again to help unload. I highly recommend these two gentlemen to be your helpers anytime. Thanks,…Read More guys, you did great.
Both men were professional, arrived on time and loaded EVERYTHING in a timely manner. I would most certainly use your movers again and will keep your information as a friend of mine has her house up for sale in Portland and if she needs movers I already told her I have someone who can do the job.
Reuben and Joseph showed up on time (actually a bit early), and got right to work. The first task was to unload some heavy workbenchs from a shipping container, and get them into the garage. I allowed 20 minutes getting them onto a dolly, off the container, back on the dolly, etc. But they each put on a harnesses, attached a …Read Morestrap under the bench and moved each in 90 seconds flat. Getting desks and file cabinets up the stairs was also quick. They were careful with the furniture. No dings on the walls or furniture. In addition to being fast and careful, they were really nice guys. I plan to use them on the second phase of our move.
They did a wonderful job. Both movers were friendly, helpful and took great care with my things. They were unavoidably late due to a major traffic accident on the freeway, but called to tell me and gave me a new arrival time. I would definitely use them again.
I moved from a 3 story apartment and hired three helpers for 2 hours. These guys were quiet, fast and organized. I was about 15 minutes late arriving with the U-Haul, which is usually the other way around, the workers showing late and not the client, but the guys finished 10 minutes early. They were fast! One little glitch wi…Read Moreth the payment by phone. One of the helpers dialed the number on his phone to release the funds and caused a fair of amount of frustration for me and confusion for Hire-A-Helper, but I finally dialed the number myself and the funds were released.

We would definitely recommend them! :)
The two gentlemen showed up on time and worked the entire time they were here unloading a POD for us. They got a work out going up and down a flight of stairs carrying in all of our stuff.

It was apparent that they had experience moving. They did a wonderful job.
Portland Movers Ready showed up on time and ready to get to work. I had two storage/moving containers that I needed unloaded and moved upstairs. Both took great care not to bump walls or door frames and handled my move in a timely manner. I would absolutely use them again.
They got lost and were late, but no problem, I was glad they showed up late because it was so dang cold outside! The boys were wonderful and had the job complete in less than an hour. The truck was loaded and tied down so that nothing could possibly shift during transit. Love, Love, Love these guys!
Can't thank Portland Movers or your wonderful capable crew enough for the fantastic job they did with our move. They accommodated every request happily and made a stressful job very easy! The whole experience was great and we definitely recommend your fine services to anyone who may need them.

The crew arrived on time and immediately started loading. They explained how they were securing the load and gave me pointers on what I would load later. They finished easily within the time allowed. I appreciated the professionalism and the care they showed toward my belongings
Were very friendly, worked efficiently and carefully. Would definitely use them again. Only reason I wouldn't give 5 stars is because they were over an hour late - we live in a new subdivision and I repeatedly told them they wouldn't find our house using a gps.

Portland Movers Ready really lived up to their excellent reviews . Both Jeff and Emanuel showed up on time, listened to our instructions and carried them out in a professional manner.

On time, worked hard and fast, finished ahead of my estimation of the required time. Very professional. Clearly had s great deal of prior moving experience. I recommend Porfland Movers Ready without reservation. I will use them in the futue for my moving needs
Both workers were great! My packers from Omaha did not do a good job loading my belongings and an "Avalanche" resulted during the move. The workers were able to safely and quickly unload the truck and save the majority of my belongings from damage. I would definitely recommend them and use them again.
Martin and Jesus did a great job!

August and his co-worker were great. Although they were a few minutes late, they called to let me know that and then arrived when they said they would.

The guys who did the truck unloading were great, fast and efficient. My problem was with the person doing the scheduling for Portland Movers Ready. Scheduled for 1-2pm, they finally showed at 5:30. His excuse? "We don't guarantee a starting time." Beware...
The two young men (I can't remember their names) were excellent. They were on time, ready to work, did not waste anytime, loaded everything in an efficient manner, and were extremely polite. I used Portland Movers Ready. I do not recommend the UHaul site however. They are horrible and don't give you anyway to contact the app…Read Moreropriate people should there be a problem.
Movers Ready - Martin(e) and Jesus - We requested experienced movers because we are doing a 1300 mile move and wanted the truck loaded and packed correctly. They showed up on time with great attitudes, never stopped working for a minute, and I ended up calling them "magicians" because they got so much of our stuff into the truc…Read Morek I really couldn't believe it. They knew exactly what needed to go where and why. They were incredibly careful with my items and very courteous. We had a little time left over so I had them move a BIG sofa from downstairs to upstairs. That was accomplished quickly and they made it look easy. They are super!!
The movers that showed up did work hard with all of the tasks that we gave them. However, after they left our hand drill was no where to be found. One of them used it to take apart a desk. It was the two of us, and three of them. No one else could have taken it, but one of them. Shameful.
Manuel and Jesus were the best. Jesus is a master packer...stuff kept going in the truck and disappearing. I don't think one inch of space was wasted.

I would highly recommend them! EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE.
They were reliable about calling and verifying their arrival. They also finished the job sooner than I had expected since they worked diligently to unload the POD without taking a break. One of their workers, Manuel, worked really hard and I think did the most work. My disappointment was that they would have put things just anyw…Read Morehere if I hadn't been there to direct each box that was taken out of the POD. I had prepared a simple "cheat sheet" for them which had the information for where to put things and explained what I wanted when they first arrived but they didn't refer to the sheet at all so I found I had to be there at each moment. Also, they didn't seem as experienced at knowing how to unload (e.g., put the small stuff aside, take care of the heavy or bulky items first so that the space doesn't get filled up with things that should go on top of the furniture.) They were, however, polite, and did get the job done.
Martin, and Jesus arrived on time, and kept me informed of their progress. They expertly loaded a 16 Ft U-pack. I would use them and therefore Portland Movers again. Jeff coordinated with me even though he obviously had a full schedule.
On time, very careful, always a smile on their face, pleasant. Had 3 flights of stairs and never complained. Would use them again and again! Loaded truck for move from Gresham, Or. to Bandera, Tx. Upon arrival nothing shifted nothing broken.
We had rented a POD and unfortunately there was not enough space so I had to rent another storage unit quickly. The movers stayed longer than the initial time we alloted. They were very professional. They worked hard and were very careful with some of our more sensitve pieces of furniture. We will have to use movers again in a…Read More couple of weeks and I plan on asking them to help me again.
1. They showed up 1.5 hours late - (though they did call to let me know) 2.

At the end when I had to call hireahelper to release their payment, they over heard the system repeat the total amount, at which they chimed in that I had paid too much - hireahelper must add a fee just for them on the prices you see when booking and they took the unprofessional approach of pointing out I over paid for this crappy experience.
I have to tell you that Julio and his helper did a great job for us. They were on time and worked hard all day. They were able to pack more into our POD than I thought possible and were extremely polite and helpful. They were well trained and I would highly recommend them to everyone.
The individuals who came to help us with our move were very efficient and very professional.

Worth every penny and the generous tip for the quick efficient work that these gentleman provided me, in unloading my 26foot truck. I helped them as I can not just sit around and do nothing while others work hard so in less than two hours we were able to unload the truck, COMPLETELY!!! Thanks so much!!!
Normally, my husband and I move our own things, but after moving cross-country and waking up to wind and fairly heavy rain, hauling all of our heavy wood furniture to the top floor of our apartment complex in a new city without help just wasn't high on our list of things we wanted to do on a Saturday. Google and Portland Movers…Read More Ready to the rescue. Our hired crew arrived within the given time frame on same-day notice and managed to move all of our belongings into our new place (with the exception of six boxes of books) within two hours. Given that we had completely stuffed our 16' moving/storage container from front to back and from top to bottom, this was an impressive feat. We were both so impressed with how hard these two men worked, that we've already decided to hire them again when we move from our current apartment into a house. Highly recommended.
They were about 45 minutes late and had trouble finding my place. But, they called and were very polite. I booked them for two hours, but they were done in one. I would hire Portland Movers again -- they were efficient and easy to work with.
Portland Movers Ready did a great job. They were prompt and professional. They helped load the van efficiently and quickly, and helped to unload everything at the new house. They did all the heavy lifting and I was surprised at how quickly they completed the job.
The guys were not only right on time, but curtious and friendly. They worked hard and got everything done I needed them to - within the timeframe I had hired them for. All of my items were loaded and unloaded with care and nothing was damaged. Absolutely I would recommend them!
We had 4 men for our move. One was early the other three were 20 minutes late, but they came together. They were well prepared and ready to get the job done.

They were a little late, but called ahead and told me the situation. My job required moving furniture and items from one apartment to another in the same complex. They did a good job and moved very quickly. They even helped me dispose of some unwanted furniture at Goodwill and unload a few heavy pieces at another location. …Read More I would definately use them again.
These guys were wonderful! We called pretty much last minute and they were here on time. Because of various things that were happening with us that day, they ended up having to wait about an hour for the moving truck to show up, but they did so with great attitudes. They were fast and efficient, careful and extremely helpful.
Portland Moves Ready were a pleasure to work with last weekend. They were on time (I was late), very professional and worked quickly. They were open to helping me with anything related to the move as well, not just loading. So to disassemble or assemble, etc. I would hire them again. Very respectful of my property and goods…Read More.
They showed up close to the appointed time and were very efficient and hard working. The movers took good care of my belongings and got everything moved within the alloted time.

They did arrive about 15 minutes late, but they got right to work and did an excellent job of unloading, placing items in the proper locations and assisting with setup. Very personable and aimed to please. Highly Recommend this team of workers.
The guys did a good job. The "booker" was communicative and responsible, which I found not to be the case with every other moving company I'd called. They were on time and worked hard, personable and nice. Also definitely reasonably priced and this website made it super easy to take care of payment and arrangements. The only…Read More reason I am giving them 4 stars instead of 5 is that they did drop or bang up a few things and slightly lost steam by the end of the job. But all in all, I feel that these are smaller issues. I would most definitely call and use them again and would also recommend them to friends with small to medium sized moving jobs.
The service is excellent!

They fully listened to me abou…Read Moret which one load first, which one load second etc... without arguments; but if they felt they had better ideas, they do will suggest me. After my confirmation, they will do it. The price is worth and reasonable. They actually take one hour driving to my home and another one hour to back. So they spend 4 hours to get real full-time 2 hours service fee. I highly recommend them for moving service. I wish them have a great day and take care Johnny Jiang
Highly recommend, we had a wood shop in the basement and all the heavy tools. They moved all and packed our truck They were great. Our closing date change, new date of move I got a call with move NOW. I called and All Movers asked when and time and all three guys were there. They were a life saver!!
I got Ryan and Tim and they start slow, and argue sometimes about the best way to do something, but they really move fast and crank out the items once they get rolling. Very flexible and helpful. They pack things very well into a storage unit and the truck. Definately got my $ worth.
