local and residential moving services

in the greater Portland OR area and Vancouver WA

We’re Portland people. We live and breathe this city and we have focused our business on helping people move in and settle into the neighborhoods and communities that we love the most. Our business relies on serving our community and for over 28 years we’ve done just that. We care about this area and the people in it, and we’re here to help you make your next move as stress free as possible.

Smooth Move People has the lowest moving rates in Oregon and Washington.

We keep our moving rates as low as legally possible. You’re our neighbors and we want to provide you the best quality moving services for the least amount that the ODOT will let us. We understand that moving can get expensive. If you are buying a home there may be closing costs to consider, new furniture to buy, or other unexpected expenses that pop up during the process. Moving rates should not be something you should have to worry about very much. You can trust that our moving rates are low and that you will get the best possible service in each step of the moving process.

Moving from Northwest Portland to St. Johns? Easy. Maybe you are making a bigger transition, from the outskirts of Beaverton into the Pearl District where all the restaurants and fun are. No matter where you are moving to or from, our team will help make the process smooth.


Packing can be one of the most time-consuming processes and for some people, it is the most dreaded part. If the idea of packing up your belongings gives you a headache, we are happy to do the packing for you.

We have the supplies you need including paper pads, tape, bubble wrap, and boxes of all shapes and sizes. With our experience and skill, we will expertly and quickly pack your belongings so you can spend your time getting other details worked out for your move. We bring our expert movers and supplies, so you can relax knowing that everything from your books to bedding will be packed efficiently and carefully.

Loading and Unloading

No need to ask your friends and family to volunteer their time to carry your boxes and furnitures to a rented moving truck. Smooth Move People will load and unload your trucks for you. This means your furniture and boxes will be moved into a truck by professionals, maximizing the space available, meaning fewer trips back and forth and less of your valuable time. Not to mention, you will save your energy and muscles for unpacking and decorating your new living space once you get settled. 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. We know how hard you have worked for what you have, and your belongings are important to us. We treat each item, big or small, with tender loving care, so you won’t have to fret about anything getting damaged.
