Packing Services With Your Local Movers in Portland

Moving to a new place can be exciting–packing for that move is not. Let our experienced Portland movers take care of your clothes, furniture, kitchen gadgets, and everything else you have. We’ll box everything up, disassemble any furniture if necessary, and get everything ready for the truck.

We’ll wrap the important stuff with care, including dishes, mirrors, large pictures, TVs, and so on. Are there certain items you’d rather take care of yourself? We’re more than happy to let you take care of those family heirlooms or other delicate items (although we can take care of them as well).


Portland Movers: Loading and Unloading

Packing is just half the battle when it comes to residential moves. Okay, maybe more than half, but picking everything up and moving it to the truck is no easy feat, either. We take care of it, ensuring the boxes, furniture, and other items all fit in harmony with one another.

Even if everything is packed perfectly in boxes, a sloppy loading job means your stuff will be sliding all over the truck, crashing into one another. We make sure everything is securely loaded and looks the same coming out of the truck as it did going into the truck. We’ve moved items all over the Portland Metro area and beyond with very minimal complications.

Once at your new place, we’ll unpack the truck and put your belongings where you want them. We’ll put the big stuff back together and then get out of your hair so you can enjoy your new home. As full-service Portland movers, we’ll even take all of the packing stuff with us if you’d like.
