Gabriel and Davis were awesome. They were troopers through the rain and they shrink wrapped all of my furniture to protect it. I would definitely recommend them to anyone that need great loaders and unloaders.

These folks came on time, were prepared for the job, and took care of everything for me. They were super helpful, worked hard, they were good to my belongings, and they were friendly. One of them even ran out for some extra tools they needed to help me with my furniture. Would totally use Thumbs Up Moving Labor again!

I waited until my POD was unloaded to give my review. Gabriel was not only professional and friendly he was genuinely concerned about taking care of my property. He provided more attention than I anticipated, he listened to me and used his know how to do the job right. The "unlaoders said; Thumbs-up did the the best job they have ever seen". Nothing was broken or moved around. I give them the best rating because they deserve it! Hire them and you'll see for yourself. GW, Vancouver, WA

Mover's response:
Thank you so much Ghaile!!! Your review absolutely made my day! Getting your belongings to your new location safely and unharmed is priority number 1. I’m glad you waited until the unload to give this review. What we send out to be unloaded is a big reflection of how we do things. Your unloaders compliment is what we want to hear EVERY SINGLE TIME. We appreciate your business!

These gentlemen are wonderful... they’re professional (didn’t hear a single swear/cuss word in the entire 7 hours), honest, kind, and have a positive upbeat attitude! I have already requested them to move us again in 6 months when our new home is completed. I would recommend them to family and friends without hesitation! Thank you SO MUCH Gabriel and Nick!

Mover's response:
Hello again, Pamela! Can’t thank you enough for leaving such a glowing review. You and your daughter were so kind and understanding the entire job so you really made it easy on us. Nick and myself look forward to coming back when it’s time to move into the new home. Give us a call anytime. Take care!

(5) 9/6/2019 Portland

Completely invaluable. We could never have finished the move without them. They were prompt, communicative, respectful, and knowledgable. Gabriel went above and beyond when I hadn't correctly assessed the number of hours the move would take; he found a second crew to come by the next day for as long as I needed them, even though that day was on a weekend. If you need people who roll with the punches and help you find solutions, definitely hire this company.

Mover's response:
We appreciate it so much that you took the time to leave such a great review, Camilla. With the amount of work you and everyone involved had already put in, some relief was needed and we are happy to be the company that you chose. Thank you for your business!

Get To Know Us

What can a customer expect after booking with you?

We are a group that consists of people with professionalism, good customer service skills and most importantly, we treat your belongings as if they are our own.

What can a customer expect on moving day if they hire you?

We will show up on time. Ask for a walkthrough to see what is going and what maybe isn’t. If you have a certain way you need the truck loaded, we always work with the customer in that area.

How should a customer prepare for moving day?

It depends on the situation. If you want us to come in and do everything such as packing all your boxes and loading it then we can definitely handle that. However, if you wanna a more quick and budget friendly move... have everything packed in boxes and ready to be moved and loaded. We also always stress getting enough blankets if you want your furniture protected properly, at least 1 pad per item, some larger items and odd shaped items require 2 or more. Shrink wrap helps to hold blankets on but tape works

What types of moves have you handled?

We have handled almost every job imaginable. Anywhere from working at PDX moving the entire contents of an airplane hanger to moving studio apartments. Everything in between as well. Office moves, houses from 800 sq ft to 8000 sq ft. We do not offer long distance moving however.

What's your favorite part about being a mover?

The change in the everyday work life. Very much enjoy seeing a different part of town/state everyday and having a flexible schedule. It is also incredible how much you see get done in a such a small amount of time.

What training do you provide your crew members?

Technique, technique, technique. Always checking where you’re walking and what is around the corner or behind you that could get damaged. Prepping the house for the move. That means floor protection, protecting doors/doorways, rails on sitar’s, etc. always remind them to be conscious of what could be damaged. Customer service skills are a must if you want to work for us.
