Not only the nicest but the best!!!! They outdid all expectations And I am a engineer whom is short on compliments but can't say enough about Marcus and his crew!!!! They disassembled and reassessembled a four post commercial car lift that took an Otis elevator crew of four to originally assessemble 0.00 They packed and stacked beyond anyone's expectations And took care of my possessions more careful than I could I would highly recommend them L.

Excellent!! On time, got right to work, stayed on task, they were top notch all around, not to mention that they were really nice people. I’ll use them again when it’s time to unload my POD (in 2-3 months), and I absolutely recommend them to others.

Davis and Marcus were great! They took great care with my furniture and belongings and worked hard and fast to pack everything in a very short time. They arrived on time and finished early. They were friendly and very appreciative of my business. I would highly recommend Thumbs Up!

Mover's response:
We wouldn't expect anything less from this awesome crew! Thank you for the future recommendations and your business!

The 2 person team was very helpful in unloading a moving trailer. They were efficient, neat, careful, and were attentive to my elderly Father as he provided directions to place items. The Company communicated before, during and after the team was here. The job took 3 hours to unload approx 22 ft of trailer space. They were originally scheduled for 2 hours, however, they stayed till the end, and it would have been quicker if the distance between the condo and trailer was closer. I would recommend them again.

Mover's response:
Communication is key and we do our best to stay in touch with each and every customer. Yes unfortunately every footstep is time spent. So glad you enjoyed the service, Chris. We look forward to any future moves you may want our help on. Thank you for your business!

They were on-time and ready to work, great communications pre-move and day of move, willing to put stuff (in my storage locker) where I wanted it, they checked with me during and afterwards to make sure I was satisfied. Overall, above average service and care. Thanks again.

Mover's response:
We appreciate the business and the time you took to leave this review, steve!

They were on time, very respectful and completed the job in a timely manner, even though we had them re-move some items. I would definitely recommend this company again.

Mover's response:
Thank you so much, Terri!

They were strong, fearless, and good company. I booked three hours, but they finished in two. I plan to book them for another job in a few weeks.

Mover's response:
We look forward to working with you again, Dan!

I'd give the actual movers that came to our place a 5 and the office staff a 3 so overall a 4. Despite setting a time window and even encouraging us to pick a specific time, the movers showed up about an hour later than our agreed upon time window. They also didn't come with the furniture dollies and home protection gear I had asked the office to send along. They had hand trucks and made due. Clearly the requests I made that were confirmed by the office did not get communicated. It also seems as though they don't allow time for prior moves to go over and ask the movers to head to the next job without a break. That said, the mover I dealt with most was exceptional. He went above and beyond to get my stuff unpacked and into our new place within the quoted time. His assistant was good too but was mainly running things between the sidewalk and our new place. Overall I'd use this company again, but I'd be a bit more forceful in confirming both an arrival time and the equipment required.

Mover's response:
While I think our previous reviews speak for themselves as far as preparedness and being on time goes, I will absolutely take the blame for this one and I sincerely apologize. For the lack of protection and the 4 wheel Dollie. This particular day has been a lesson learned and I know we can make it right with you on the next one. We appreciate your feedback and your business!

They took care in wrapping and transporting my items to pack the moving truck I rented. Very efficient loading, I didn't think all of my belongings would fit but they made it happen and everything arrived in same condition.

Mover's response:
We love hearing that everything made it exactly as it left your home. It’s music to our ears here at Thumbs Up Moving Labor. Thank you for the review, Robyn!

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.
