Best Portland Moving Companies — How to Choose
There are plenty of moving companies in the Portland area trying to get your business. That can make finding the best Portland movers even more challenging with so many unlicensed, inexperienced movers advertising tempting low rates.
The right moving company offers more than affordability; you deserve movers who will arrive promptly and in uniform, use the right equipment and materials to protect your home and belongings, and ensure everything reaches your new home unharmed.
The next step is researching each Portland, OR moving company on your list. You want to ask yourself the following questions:
- How long have they been in business?
- How many relocations do they perform every year?
- What is their claims rate?
- Are they licensed and insured?

- Do they have transparent rates?

What Portland Movers Don’t Do for You
At PDX Movers, we strive to deliver the best customer care possible to make your relocation as easy and stress-free as we can. Our movers in Portland can’t handle everything, though. Before the big day, we recommend following these tips to make sure you’re ready to settle into life in your new home once you arrive.
- Don’t forget to set up your Portland utilities. You should call to begin or transfer your service about a week or two before your move and have services activated before moving day.
- Consider whether you need new furniture for your new home. Are you moving from an apartment to a home or a larger space? You may want to consider buying used furniture in Portland to decorate your new home.
- Make sure you schedule pickup for large items you wish to donate. Some charities need a week or longer to arrange pickup.
- Change your address and choose a date to have mail delivered to your new home.
- Do research on your new community to find a new doctor, church, and gym.
