Best movers ever, super fast, efficient, and careful with my stuff. I've had terrible experiences in the past and it was such a relief! Reasonable prices too!

The guys were great very nice and accommodating to work with time wise. So willing to move anything anywhere after they brought it in. I’m never moving again! But if I were I would definitely call them again.

Gabriel and Greg arrived a little early for the job, we're constantly moving and working all the time, and took very good care of our items. Very pleasant and easygoing guys, I would definitely hire them again.

Marcus and Nick were great. Showed up early, only took one quick coffee break and really hustled. They were careful with our things at both ends, loading and unloading and even made some time saving recommendations to help keep us within the budgeted time. Really great experience overall.

The two gentlemen arrived on time and they were very courteous, friendly and polite. They didn’t want to spend time talking but wanted to get right to work. In fact when I tried to “help” that told me “that’s their job”! They handled every piece of furniture with care and knew exactly had to maneuver each piece to get the furniture in with no effect to the walls or furniture. They didn’t stop until the job was completed and then asked if there was anything else we wanted help with. So they were able to unload a 16 foot POD in record time! I highly recommend this company! Thank you for a job well done!

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.
