The guys showed-up on time and were able to complete the unload in plenty of time. They were friendly and knowledgeable. Money well spent.

My crew from Thumps Up were great. They arrived on time and went right to work. They worked with no breaks, laid carpet protectors and were able to finish in a timely matter. They even set up the bed frame. A job well done. Highly recommended.

Marcus and Davis were positive, cooperative and worked well as a team. They listened to my preferences regarding unloading. Finished well before allocated reserved time. Gabriel accommodated my need to reschedule and provided timely updates. Would definitely use “Thumbs Up Moving Labor” again!!

Mover's response:
Being flexible in this line of work is crucial. Stuff happens. We get that. Thank you for letting us get you moved in Robin!

Gabriel and his partner were great. they contacted me twice before my appointment, 1st to confirm then when they were on their way. They were like a well oiled machine, brought all the necessary materials needed and worked great as a team. They were respectful of myself and my home and they were pros at packing the Pod to get the most out of the space. They were friendly and professional. I have no problem recommending them.

Mover's response:
Hello once again Pete! Thank you for taking the time to leave such a great review. You've been an awesome customer! We will take care of anyone you point in our direction. All the best!

Marcus and Nick were awesome! They worked fast and efficiently together. I had never known of this service before but now that I do, I will recommend them to anyone I know. Thanks again for the great job you two! Moving is stressful, however, not this time!!! :)

Mover's response:
We are so happy and relieved to hear this kind of feedback. Moving is very stressful as it is. It’s our job to take as much of that stress away as possible while keeping a keeping a good attitude. Thank you so much for choosing us, Kaydra!

We needed far more time than we thought. They stayed late and did a fabulous job. They worked extremely hard and were very careful and wrapped all items so we would have no damage. We haven’t ever had such a good team of guys for moving before. We have a real estate company so use movers somewhat frequently for clients. I wouldn’t hesitate to call them again. Gabriel’s team was tremendous. Joni Knight Joni Knight Realty Group, Inc.

Mover's response:
Thank you for the great review, Joni! It was such a breeze coordinating this move with you for the homeowner. Those compliments from a real estate company holds a lot of weight. We look forward to any future help we can provide!

(5) 10/11/2019 Canby

The three people that came to my house on 10/112019 were efficient, courteous, professionally loaded my truck I would hire these people again on a heart beat.. conversely the people that showed up to unload my truck on 10/12/2019 from hire a helper were incompetent, incapable of doing the job, the first item they attempted to unload was our new freezer they dropped it off the back end of the truck totally destroying the new freezer, We immediately dismissed them, called hire a helper and was told they were not liable FOR the destruction of our freezer.. To date there has not been one word of apology or restitution for our loss. I would never go through hire a helper.again, they are not acountable and probably will not show this review...STAY AWAY FROM HIRE A HELPER GO DIRECTLY TO THE LABOUR SOURCE...

Mover's response:
Carl I am so sorry you had such a bad experience on the unload. Let me be clear when I say we are not affiliated in anyway to the moving company that you speak of for your unload. That being said, we are so happy that you were happy with our movers and thankful you took the time to give this review. Hope to work with you again in the future!

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.
