local and residential moving services

Moving in or around Portland? Use a local moving company

We’re neighborhood guys. Our business relies on serving the community. Unlike the big national moving companies, that means we’re accountable to you.

It also means we can quote differently.

Smooth Move People has the lowest residential moving rates in Oregon and Washington. We’re able to keep our prices low because we own everything – trucks, supplies, etc.

We make it a point to keep our prices low because we like to help our neighbors. We’ve been in business in Portland for over 28 years. We aren’t in this business to break the bank. We know what we’re doing, we’re good at what we do, so we continue to do it.

Moving houses or apartments has so many steps to it. So that’s why we take care of everything:


Packing is one of the most tedious parts of moving, and we’re happy to do it for you. Quickly, too. That means everything from beds to dinner plates to lampshades. We’ll typically pack a home the day before the move unless it’s a one or two-bedroom apartment, which we can do the day of.

Loading & Unloading

One of the biggest hazards we see with moving companies is the disregard they have for other people’s stuff. Corners getting chipped, walls dinged…it can be a nightmare.

Moving is the time when things get damaged; our team is careful and experienced enough so you don’t have to worry about that. We do the narrow hallways. We twist and turn through doorways where couches have no business getting through. We carry washing machines up the front steps.

And for weather? What kind of moving company would we be if we couldn’t move in the rain? We have all the necessary supplies to keep your things safe and dry, regardless of the weather.


Every move is different. You’d be a magician if you could provide pinpoint quotes, but we’re pretty accurate. We’ve been doing this since 1989, after all.
