Ed, David, Joe, and Mike were amazing.  They were quick, hard working, and professional.  Nothing was damaged and the move went perfectly smooth, even with our toddler running around!

Everything went very smoothly. Would definitely use this company again! Ed and James got the job done super fast and did a great job.

Second time using these guys - and they are fantastic. Ed and Brandon did great, were professional, efficient, and quick - they were definitely hustling! The rates were fair and comparable to other companies. They were communicative and responsive. We initially booked 3 movers, but one of the guys was sick so only 2 showed up, but it ended up being fine. Highly recommended. More...

James, Joe and JJ killed the move. They wrapped up all the important items, kept working efficiently throughout the day, delivered everything without any damage, and were overall friendly and helpful people. Their rates were also better than what a few other companies quoted. More...

Very professional, efficient movers!  James and Joe took great care to move all of our belongings out of a POD and into our new home.  We will definitely hire these movers again! More...

By far the best moving company I have ever used over 3 decades for many moves. The owner Kyle is super nice and responsive. All movers are well-trained, experienced and handsome too! They are honest, upfront, no hidden charges, no nickel and dime. I would use them again for sure. More...

This was my family's first time using professional movers, and the experience was great.They moved my family from a live work space with screen-printing equipment into our new home, and they were super professional, and hustled. They carefully wrapped all our furniture even the Ikea stuff, and made sure it was set-up in the right rooms to our liking before leaving.If you are doing a serious move you definitely want to consider Primetime, and ask for James, Joe, and Ed "MVP Crew" to move you.

After my last disastrous move I was hesitate to hire movers again. I found Primetime movers on Yelp. Hands down best decision I made. James, Ed and Joe killed it. They were professional, hustled, moved efficiently and worked as a team.  They went above and beyond. For example, a POD needed to be unloaded. After a long day of loading and unloading their truck, without hesitation they unloaded the POD. If you're looking for hardworking and fast movers, higher James, Ed, and Joe. More...

Everything happened when they said it would. The three guys they sent were hard working and easy to get along with. And the price was very reasonable.

I am so happy with the service I had with Primetime Movers. James and Joe arrived on time to my apartment and took the extra care to wrap all my furniture and tons of glass and art I had in my place. I have had anxiety about all this stuff breaking in transport. One day later and probably half unpacked, not one thing is broken. I'm so so grateful for the care they took with my furniture and belongings. I would 100% recommend this company and especially James and Joe. Thank you Primetime for getting me from one place to the other with all my furniture and breakables intact!!! More...

Ed and Dave did a fantastic job. They came in with a sense of urgency yet very careful. We also got some excellent advice on prepping. Thank you Tim and Carrie.

James and Joe did a great job. They wrapped all of my furniture items and didn't damage anything. They were friendly and hustled. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is 1) they arrived about 1.5 hours late, which was due to a truck breaking down and having to go rent another truck, 2) no one told me that they would be taking a break from Point A to Point B, so I was concerned that they were going to be charging me for the 30 minutes I waited at Point B for them (in the end, they took the 15 minutes for a break off of what they charged) and 3) I had emailed with Kyle about renting 5 wardrobe boxes, but they didn't show up with them, which I am hoping is because of the issues they had with the truck - my boyfriend and I had to carry all of my clothes down the long hallway and into his car and then unload them at Point B - just frustrating to have to do work on moving day when I hired movers for the very reason of not wanting to do it myself. 2nd time using them and I would probably use them again.

First time hiring movers and Ed and Joe did a amazing job moving all my stuff to a new apartment on the 3rd floor with no stairs. All stuff was handled with care and I would definitely recommend prime time movers. Their rates are reasonable - especially for weekend moves. Thanks for a awesome move! More...

Great job! Thanks to James, Ed, and Joe. It seems one of them was kind of under the weather on the day but he still got the job done. Would definitely hire them again.

I recently used Primetime Movers to move my household goods from Portland to Happy Valley.  They were fantastic.  I've moved many times with corporate relocation programs, so I've seen more than my fair share of movers.  They arrived on time, were very courteous, hard working, fast and effective.  They properly protected all the sensitive items, protected the walls and woodwork in both homes, and were extremely careful not to make any dings or dents.  The crew of Ed, Joe & James were great to work with throughout the 5-hour move. I would strongly recommend their services to anyone.  Thank you. More...

James, Ed and Joe helped us move from old two stories home to another two stories house. They finished the job in 3 hours which is much less than what I was expecting. Everything was placed nicely at the spot I need them to be. They are every easy to work with. The communication with Kyle beforehand was smooth and timely. I highly recommend Primetime movers!

These guys were the best! Made it easy to obtain a quote and replied super fast. We had 2 trucks to unload in Lake Oswego which unfortunately for them had 32 steps to the front door. Did I mention we have a behemoth of a wine fridge that they had to lug up these stairs? The 4 guys were friendly and patient. Yes we were back and forth on where we wanted some things to be placed. Absolutely hire Primetime. You won't regret it. More...

Primetime movers did a fantastic job. The crew were efficient and polite and handled everything with care. We also had some last minute packing that we hadn't finished. They helped us finish that without hesitation. I noticed the truck was packed perfectly. They were great all around and we highly recommend them! More...

Primetime movers loaded up a POD that was shipped to Chicago for us. They were very detailed with what to expect via phone in regards to the move. They gave me two options in terms of purchasing pads for protection. They offered to sell us their blankets (but informed us they were expensive) or go to harbor freight and purchase for half the price. We chose the ladder. We appreciate the honesty. The POD arrived yesterday and was unloaded here in the evening. It was packed professionally and we can not see any nicks or dings. They don't go out of state, but If they did we would use them when the time comes to move again. More...

This was our third time using a moving company and by far our favorite! James, Joe, and Ed were prompt, professional, polite, and strong as hell. The stuck to the estimated time and made the perfect amount of enjoyable small talk. We definitely recommend them to anyone and it's now obvious why they have such high ratings. They even made an extra trip, free of charge, to return some screws for furniture that had fallen off in the truck. From quote to finish they made it easy for us to move. My pregnant wife and I didn't lift a finger. More...

These movers are the best movers in the northwest they showed up to my house with three men and a big truck I got everything out of my three bedroom house and moved into my new house in 3 hours

I highly recommend Primetime Movers. James and his team did a fantastic job moving me last week. The entire crew worked tirelessly and went above and beyond to make my move as smooth as possible.  Moving is a stressful, but Primetime did a great job making it as easy as possible and their price was very fair. Thank you for doing such a great job! More...

I can't say enough great things about my experience with Northwest Movers (now called Primetime Movers?).  We had an excellent crew of James, Ed, Brandon and Justin.  They unloaded our 2920 sq ft house, which included 45 stairs from top to bottom, without damaging or scratching anything!  The entire time they were working hard, professional and courteous and maintained a positive attitude from beginning to end.  I had a bad experience when we originally moved into our house 6 years ago with College Movers, where they damaged our new expensive leather couch, so I am extremely glad I found a company that I can trust.  Thanks again for the smooth moving day.

We hired them to load up two PODS full of our grandmothers belongings to be shipped to the East coast. Scheduling was crisp and quick. I received a confirmation email and a call the day before confirming my reservation.We only had the building manager onsite during the move. They were able to take card payment over the phone. When the PODS arrived weeks later, we were impressed that not a single piece had been damaged, or scratched for that matter. They had protected everything to the max. The entire ordeal was a lot easier then I expected it to me, in large part because of this company. More...

I switched to a new studio and had a bunch of stuff to move. My two movers got everything done even faster than they estimated and also they were there exactly on time. Additionally, they were really nice and cool. I was stressed and one of them helped me with some deep breaths. Thanks guys! More...

This is the second time we have used this company, and will be using them a third time later this year. We've been impressed with the communication process as well as the most important part itself, the movers. They went the extra mile it wrapping our items. Didn't break although we offered. Thank you for being on time and working hard. More...

PROS: 1)worked without breaks.2)professional3)wrapped many items carefully, which I appreciatedMy move wasn't necessarily an easy one, and they did what they could to make it right. I appreciate their customer service and professionalism. I would recommend Northwest Movers if you're looking for good service. More...

Ed, Jerrod, and Joe did a great job with my move.  They let me know they were on their way, were on time, and had a solution for every potential obstacle.  They moved everything from 3rd floor very fast and efficiently, everything in great condition, and made 2 stops at drop off.  I appreciate them making my move so smooth.

Ed, James and Cameron did an AMAZING job moving us out of our third story apartment - with no elevator! They hustled the entire time, but also carefully handled out furniture and even broke it down to make it fit nice into our freight moving trailer (and save us money since we pay by the foot). We couldn't have asked for a better experience -- thank you again!!! More...

We used Northwest for a move from Portland to troudtdale earlier this week. I can't begin to tell you how great these guys have been. They had to pick up items from two different locations and deliver it to a second level storage unit. Most of these pieces are large and heavy. Positive attitudes throughout. We didn't pack our storage units that well, which meant they had to rearrange that as well. They sold us a dozen blankets and let me know if they get them back they will refund the cost of those. Thanks guys- Andre & Barbara More...

5 July 2019

This was the easiest move I've had yet. They did a terrific job of packing and loading the truck. I'm a month late it writing this review. Nothing broke and everything was safely secured in the truck. I will recommend Northwest movers to everyone I know who is in need of moving help. They were great. More...

Northwest movers did an amazing job unloading a 26 foot truck/trailer earlier this week. They showed up on time and were fast to get everything off loaded and beds set up. Rates were good compared to two other companies I got quotes from.They also hauled away a bunch of trash such as shrink wrap and boxes without us even asking. Would highly recommend northwest and would use them again. More...

24 June 2019

We mean evey star for this review.I researched many moving companies and kept circling back to nw movers based of the reviews and pricing. I booked three weeks before the move and asked many questions, which I'm sure we're a bit annoying but you gotta do your homework. Coordinating details was easy and convenient for me.I received a call the day before the move to confirm the details. They also emailed a few tips from their FAQ page on their site.Movers were very positive and worked hard. Never once did I get the impression they were being careless or working the clock. Everything was well wrapped and arrived clean and organized. Were new to Portland but I've had experiences with other companies down in LA and they have been mediocre at best. I would hire them again and would refer them as well. More...

21 June 2019

I was originally set with another company who canceled on me with 1 weeks notice. This left me trying to find a replacement company on a holiday weekend. They replied to my email within a half hour and we're available for the date I needed.They loaded up my truck and made sure everything was fastened in tightly. I received an email a few days after the move to make sure everything went OK. This was a nice gesture. More...

22 May 2019

The movers were efficient, careful, considerate and hard-working. they moved my entire 2000 sq. ft. home into a temporary storage unit in 4. 5 hours. I would recommend them to anyone making a move. 5 stars!!!! More...

I used these guys for a move in December in SE Portland. I had all our stuff packed but my furniture wasn't wrapped or protected. I was super impressed at how well they wrapped all our furniture so it arrived pristine on the other side. They also sent three guys and hustled. I don't even think they took a break. They just kept at it and our move was done before noon (we only moved a mile). Nice guys too. Would recommend. More...

25 April 2019

Fantastic service! I've used them 4 times over 5 years. Always timely. Always careful with my belongings and ALWAYS go above and beyond customer service. Very friendly and helpful staff that work so hard. Every time they've moved me I have lived on the 3rd floor and the movers have not complained one bit! Just jumped right it and got it done. Can't say enough about how great they are! More...

I used to hate moving until I experienced it with NW Movers. Kyle and Cameron were very pleasant workers. There were supposed to be 3 guys on our move, but Kyle and Cameron were so efficient that they finished the job in less than 9 hours (another person came to help the last 45-60 minutes). I was glad I called you guys to help us move. More...

23 April 2019

Extremely professional and I highly recommend! The did an excellent job from start to finish. Very efficient and careful with all my things. There was great communication between the two guys and myself and I felt like the truly cared. I value customer service highly and that is the primary reason I recommend them so much. More...

21 April 2019

I had a great experience. Very professional. The two guys that came over got to work immediately. The wrapped each piece of furniture in padded blankets. They moved quickly and efficiently. I had an entire truckload (4 full rooms & garage with some really heavy furniture) and I don't think they broke a sweat. They didn't ding the walls or hit anything, very aware of their surroundings. Great guys, too. More...

Kyle and his team did a great job woth my move!  James and Ed even had to disassemble two items partially to get them into my new office. They did a nice job of protecting everything and not one thing was damaged.  The two movers had great attitudes too.  thanks for helping a very long day go smoothly!! More...

Our move was fantastic. The office staff was easy to work with and answered all of our questions/ concerns. Guys were on time and worked well together. Had manners as well. I heard several please and thank yous throughout the day. They placed everything where we had asked them to. The move came in a little under what I was expecting to pay. We are super happy we found Northwest movers Portland. More...

Northwest movers Portland came recommended from my neighbor who used them a month back. I took notice on how well they were doing on her move and she confirmed that she had a good experience.

Joel and Cameron were polite and hard worker's. They worked hard to make sure we finished in a timely matter (were on a budget). I learned that moving isn't cheap, but I knew that before hand to an extent. They did make the entire process much easier on us!

We owe a big thank you to kyle for setting up and taking care of our move. Two guys showed up on time and were very friendly. Ed and mike I believe? Were great. I was impressed with the communication leading up to the move, as well as the movers in their own right. If you're looking for movers in Portland, give northwest movers a call. They set us up and took good care of us. More...

15 March 2019

I went back and forth about hiring movers for two reasons. One being I'm still completely capable of moving everything I own, and two from my research it didn't look like moving was cheap. Bit the bullet and got three quotes from moving companies around the West side of Portland. Northwest movers came in pretty much in the middle in terms of pricing.

It still wasn't cheap, but saving the strain on my back and not having to nag my friends was well worth it. I also found out that they help move people who are in domestic violence situations. The move itself was flawless, but then to find that out. They get my support all the way. That's awesome to do.

I have been meaning to leave this review since our move but life happens. These young men were fantastic. All three were professional, polite, and never slacked a bit.

They had a good system down with one another and it was very evident from the moment they started the move. We recommend NW movers Portland!

26 February 2019

For starters- this was bar far the best moving company I've use to date. Contact over yelp was always constant/quick replies. Movers were professional and showed awesome care for my stuff. They hustled and didn't take breaks. I have two heavy front load washing machines that had to go up three flights of stairs. That was done easily. Couldn't thank them enough.The company requires a one hour deposit to get you on the schedule, which im sure is pretty common for the industry. Only issue was I was out of the country during the booking process. I told them I would call as soon as I was back in the country, but they couldn't guarantee my spot until it all was finalized. I get it, there's bad people out there who would probably book a move and then cancel last minute. I believe they're doing it the right way it was just unfortunate that I was out of the country.Overall they are a fantastic company and would recommend them over and over again. More...

K
17 February 2019

We reached out to them via yelp and they replied quickly as yelp indicates they do. Booking was super easy. The movers were polite and really handled our furniture with care. If this is possible I think they might wrap too much? They used blankets and wrap on nearly everything. I think this added more time to the move, but we are in our new home and there is zero damage to our house or items. It's there policy that everything is wrapping heavily to insure no damage happens. I really shouldn't complain about it but figured it was worth mentioning. I wasn't charged got any of the wrap they used. They are definitely careful movers. More...

They do an awesome job of communicating even when there is a snow event

5 February 2019

These guys rock!  Ed, Cam and Raf were 15 minutes late but called to let us know.  They worked like madmen in packing our 1700 sf house.  Got us packed and moved from Ptld to south of McMinnville in about 9 hrs.  Nothing broken.  We were amazed.  We wholeheartedly recommend these guys!Addendum: one of the guys accidentally walked off with the key to our roll top desk.  When I notified the company they (slowly) offered two solutions, they could either mail the key to us or they could have one of their workers (who lives near us) bring the key to us.  We said we'd like the key delivered.  Nothing happened.  I notified them and they said one of the movers mailed the key to us.  Two weeks later we still don't have the key, so we decided it wasn't coming and they had blown us off.  Ended up having to break the lock on the desk to get into it.  No one at the company ever followed through to see if we got the key and they were very sluggish in all their sparse communications.  What they should have done is overnight the key to us and follow through to make sure we got it.  If you encounter any issues with them, don't expect a professional response.Addendum #2: After seeing my addendum to my original review Kyle (the owner?) contacted me.  He asserted that I must have been texting with one of his employees about the key and not him.  I don't know if that's accurate or not but he seemed genuinely interested in making things right with me.  In fact, he went out of his way to find a resolution to the issue that I would be satisfied with... which we did.  Assuming the owner didn't know about the problem until I wrote my addendum, he did everything within his power to resolve the issue professionally.  I'm good with it.

They were great. I'm one person who moved from apartment to apartment and there were some mishaps but they were nice, efficient and made moving a breeze. They even took apart my IKEA bed that took me and my mother six hours to put together and then put it back together super quickly at my new place. More...

28 November 2018

James, Can and Raf did an impeccable job moving me into my new place. I kept commenting on how well all my furniture was wrapped, lol. Some of my furniture is incredibly heavy and they moved it without a word. Just incredible. Thank you, guys!I was really impressed and have no problem vouching for NW Movers if you need help moving.

22 October 2018

Cameron & Rafael from NW Movers Portland took great care of us today. The called to say they would be arriving 15 min after our scheduled time. That's good communication and it continued during the move. We had all the items to be wrapped & moved out in the open and ready for them. I asked specifically for the king bed to be wrapped fully and they did. They moved at a steady pace and didn't waste any time. They worked as a team and were not course or lewd as we've experienced in our last 3 moves before arriving in Oregon. They moved our big heavy stuff from a 1bd with elevator to a 2nd story with stairs in 2hr 45 min ( with 11 mile drive ) which is about what we expected. My advise is move the little stuff ,light boxes & valuables yourself and leave the heavy lifting to these experts. More...

8 September 2018

This was by far our best moving experience to date. We've had to move four times over the last rice years (don't ask) and haven't had the best experiences. Northwest Movers replied quickly over the yelp quote request. Got them on the horn and we were scheduled.Its easy to tell which companies have a good inner system going on, and this is one of them. The movers worked great together. Also seemed to like each other which helps. They made sure most of our belongings were wrapped before hand. I'm still unpacking as we speak, but so far so good.They will definitely be getting my business again, or more I will be referring them to others as I hopefully don't have to move again. Worth every penny! More...

Great customer experience and fantastic job. These guys were fast, energetic and careful and they had a great attitude. Our experience, moved from Orenco Station from a house ~2200 sq feet of stuff (we had a lot) to our new house. They started around 10am and we were done around 5pm. I have had other moves where you are still going at it till midnight (we all have right?). Cost was around  ~$2.2k with tip. That being said, there ARE cheaper movers; however, personally I have lived in 12 states. and grew up military so I understand wanting to go lowest bid. My advice....DON'T do it. Pay a little extra it was well worth not having another move horror story. Good luck and remembr....put the bed up first in a move ;) because you are gonna collapse. Oh and thank you to James, Cameron, Cameron H, and Ed...you guys were great! More...

My experience with this company:

I called the night before (5:30PM) a half hour before they closed down for the night. Was really like shooting a monkey in the dark. I half didn't even expect them to answer let alone be able to help me out (Any company for that matter). Was actually on the U-Haul website ready to reserve a truck had a moving company not paned out. Dispatch asked me for an inventory of items that were needing to be moved. I did my best but in the time crunch I soon realized I had greatly underreported the amount of stuff I really had.

They showed up at 2:00. I had to take what I could get although of course I would of preferred to move in the morning. The floor/ door protection was a nice touch as my house had just closed. It was important not to leave any nicks, marks, or any damage since the house had already closed. They used a mile of the stretch wrap stuff which I know isn't cheep and no I wasn't charged for it, even though they ran through an entire roll. Long story short the guys worked their tales off until 8:30. So the majority of the move was in the dark. Not fun. Good attitudes in a rather stressful situation.

I highly recommend these guys, great movers who deal well with adversity.

Their very attentive to new inquires and responded to my request for rates and services immediately. They are very polite and seemed willing to cover all the aspects of what is necessary when it comes to needimg a professional moving service. I'd definitely recommend using them if you're looking for a moving company their rates are very reasonable and competive and I'm sure you'll enjoy their services!! More...

Having moved several times over the past five years I can confidently say I know what a good moving company consists of. Northwest movers lived up to the hype and then some.

The team arrived a little after 9AM and started their prep work. I wasn't charged for the shrink wrap which was a nice change of pace. I also had three movers compared to two in the past with other companies. The three man team definitely made things go a lot faster. I watched James carry a bookcase around several corners. He took his time around each curve making sure the bookcase never touched the walls. A side note to others. They have a policy where they cannot unhook your washer/ drier, or remove your mounted television. They made me aware of this at the time of booking, which I'm sure they do with everyone. It is best to have this stuff taken care of before they arrive as it would only add more time to your bill. Five stars from me!

We had a great experience with northwest movers. They responded quickly to our quote request, arrived right on time and kept a good pace during the move.

Responded quick and asked several questions that other moving companies did not ask me. Provided me with a range of hours the move should take. Have a captain's bed that is hard to put back together. Couldn't have done it without them. More...

Nw movers we're great to work with. I felt like other moving companies were trying to sell me on their services. I did not get that impression from nw movers. Fairly priced, and outlined ahead of time what all was included with the service. Truck was plenty big, and the movers did a good job on making sure everything was snug for the ride over. Follow up email after my move was a nice gesture that goes a long way with me. More...

Guys were very efficient and did a great job. We still had snow up in the hills, specifically skyline road. They did have to wait a bit go take the truck down our driveway due to it still being iced over. In the meantime, they went inside and started prepping stuff, wrapping etc. Once the driveway thawed out we were all set. Everything went into storage and appeared to be in great shape. More...

Affrodble and were fast to return my call. They couldn't assist with moving my piano, but I had already planned to hire a piano movers for that itself. I wasn't charged any extra for the plastic wrap, and they used a ton of it. They did leave an item on the truck, but someone came by that same night to drop it off. Recommended for sure. More...

Moving sucks. We've had to do it four times over the last two years. Don't ask. I moved once myself and swore I would never do so again. If there's one think I will shell out money for, its a good moving company. Northwest was easy to work with from the first phone call. They laid out their pricing and explained all fees to me up front. Something worth noting is that they charge travel from their office. Other companies that I spoke with didnt charge that. Other companies also had a higher hourly rate so I still think I got the better deal. We are in our new home and all seems well. Easy process. More...

We needed to move a couch, chair, and rug so I called Northwest Movers. Everything went as smoothly as possible: the drivers were courteous, punctual & professional. They took great care with the items, and also were careful to avoid any damage to our place. The next time we have a need for a similar service, I will definitely call this company. More...

Really happy to find a company to move my office space when I needed it. I felt better knowing that I was helping college students have some money toward school. Even though the movers were young, I found them to be polite and courteous. Thanks Northwest Movers! More...

I would recommend Northwest Movers as someone to deal with based on the experience I have had with

I won't go into too many details on how I ended up working with Northwest Movers (this site had a lot do with it), Northwest Movers has been pretty quick to give me a quote and a fairly reasonable estimate of how long it would take ,The quote has been fairly accurate, the estimate on duration close enough and the company was responsive to inquiries.

Thank you North West movers for such a great experience. The service is very friendly appreciating. The rates are the best with this company. The business has shown their full intended response and the management was really nice. I am impressed with the dealing and the quality of services being offered by the North West business while I was looking for the truck on the renting basis two different times, and for both of the times the service was great. The North West helped us do the right thing and a detailed guidance for all the issues related to our shifting stuff through trucks.

Thank you Northwest Movers

Office was very helpful while setting up my move. The rate they gave me was competitive, and in range of what other companies had quoted me.

The movers themselves matched the office, in terms of efficiency. They utilized every last inch of the truck (and they needed it) in order to get my three bed loaded. Response time was quick as well. I would recommend to others in need of movers.

I used their services for a move within lake Oswego last month. After booking the appointment, I was sent a detailed list of tips on what I could do to be better prepared for the move. In this email included the confirmed time and date for the move.

Movers arrived when they said they would. They asked me for a walk through and went to work. I watched them carry several pieces of furniture around our tight stairwell. They used the right angles to make sure nothing got scuffed etc. I felt like I got what I signed up for. For that I am very happy.

After moving once without movers, I knew I didn't want to go through it again - so off I went, looking for reviews to hire a company I would be able to trust. Kyle got back to me promptly with rates and days they would be able to move us, and answered all the (probably super annoying) questions I had. When moving day actually came around, I received a courtesy 10 minute heads up call - didn't expect that, but it was nice to know when I was able to expect them. When the guys came - James, Cameron H, and Ed - they definitely took care of all my fragile items, including new appliances and TVs that were definitely NOT cheap. Moving into the house, they took care of each item and asked questions (where I wanted it placed, if there was a specific place I needed it, etc). The guys were awesome, and because of that, I would definitely hire Northwest Movers again! Thank you for making our move so easy! More...

Cameron was wonderful and receives 5 stars as he was very kind, efficient and helpful. Ed on the other hand left a bad impression.

We've had nothing but bad luck with moving companies over the years. This was our first time of needing them here in Portland. They came on recommendation from our realtor. She's a bit snobby, so if she's saying they're good they must be good.

They were just as good as I had been told. I was a little worried when they showed up as they were on the younger side, but we soon realized that didn't matter at all. Took care of our stuff as if it were their own. What's better is that the communication was crisp the entire time. From the office to the movers themselves. Just a wonderful group of guys.

I reached out to half a dozen moving companies throughout the Portland area. Northwest was my first call, and they should have been my last. All other companies I talked to kept running me through an unnecessary ringer of questions etc. All Northwest needed was the total square footage, and if we had any appliances to be moved. Very efficient with my time, and theirs as well. i called them back and scheduled the move.

Day of the move, the movers called us to let us know they'd be twenty minutes late due to the construction on the roads here in Portland. No issue at all and it was nice of them to give us this heads up. The guys were so friendly and easy to talk to for a brief minute I actually had forgot about all the stress we'd accumulated over the last month due to the move. Move went off without a hitch. All items were wrapped and handled with care. Keep in mind, this was in the middle of a nasty heat wave (at least for Portland). We provided water and beverages for the team. They were very thankful for this.

I've had nothing but terrible luck with services in general. This was an about time moment for me. If you're moving with Portland, I cant recommend giving Northwest Movers a call enough.

Three guys moved our stuff earlier this week from northwest movers. Kyle was easy to work for scheduling. Very quick to the point and no beating around the bush. Movers were extremely careful with our belongings. Everything was wrapped, so even if a piece had dropped nothing would of happened. This company was quite a pleasant surprise. If you need help moving in or around portland, these are your guys. More...

26 July 2018

They called early to see if they could start ~30 minutes before schedule, completed my entire move (1100 sq. ft. home, large items only) in 2 hours flat, and I couldn't have been more than happy with the work (and I didn't mind at all paying the 3 hour minimum)! This job included moving multiple 400-600 lb items up and down narrow stairs out of or into a finished basement.  This did result in a few minor scuffs/chips in the new paint in the stairwell, but nothing deep enough to actually damage the drywall - perfectly reasonable given how challenging some of these large items were to move!Movers were polite and didn't waste a second while on the clock.  They offered to help move anything else within the home before leaving since they finished an hour earlier than I expected.First time using a moving company and they'll be the first ones I call the next time.

The last time I moved, I vowed to never do it again myself and to hire movers. I'm getting to old for this shit. So I kept my promise to myself and hired movers this time. Kyle in the office was very helpful and accommodating with my scheduling needs. They sent a 3-person crew; James, Lidio and Ed. They were fantastic! It was the hottest day of the summer when they moved too. They were fast, but they were also careful with my belongings. I highly recommend this company m. Hopefully I don't have to love again for a long time but when I do, I'll be calling this company again. Thank you, Northwest Movers!! My back thanks you too!! More...

I just wrapped up a move with NW Movers. James and Cameron were fantastic. They were friendly, on time and did a great job. I left a lot of odd, unfun things to move, including 20+ plus cinder blocks, and they both happily added everything I needed to the truck. They carefully wrapped up everything that needed protection, and even after a long day, they helped me tremendously at the new house with some trial an error for what fit where.In my life, I've always moved myself, but with the ease of working with NW Movers and a great price, I will be using them from now on for any moving needs.

Just a really great moving company. My friend and I decided we would move my stuff by ourselves. Safe to say we underestimated how much work it would be. We decided to do a quarter of the u haul and then look for professional movers. I had several days with the rent back which helped. Northwest were able to come in two days later. Not only did they shift around what we had already loaded, but they padded everything as well followed by the wrap stuff.

It took them three hours from start to finish which doesn't make me feel too great about myself. I've had bad experiences with the service industry in general but this has restore my faith, at least as far as moving companies are concerned.

Can't rave enough again about these guys. Especially this time around. I had scheduled a few weeks in advance.  They showed up on time and once again were careful with our stuff. I didn't really pay too close of attention to how much care they took on the first move but I made sure to this time. I wasn't charged for all the wrap that was used my which surely could have equated to several bedrooms worth of furniture, Big shocker was, after the move in had several Costco garage racks sitting in the garage. FYI never buy those! They are pure pain to put together. One of the guys offered to stay after the move and help me set those up. Off the clock. Wow. Very much thankful for that. You bet yourself I tipped him good. Above and beyond to me. More...

Northwest movers gave me a peace of mind that I thought was impossible to have during a hectic move.Quick name intro, walk through, some paperwork signing, and off to the races they went. I ultimately selected them for their reviews here on yelp. I obtained several other quotes but they were the most friendly in my opinion. They were also able to provide my building with a certificate of insurance before the move day. Just a really sound experience. Plus, the followup email after my move was a nice touch. My favorite moving company I've used yet. More...

I found nw movers on Yelp and never looked back.The movers that assited were fast and professional. I had a one bedroom with a loft, which was about forty yards from the elevator.

Our move across town went well with Northwest Movers. Cameron and Ed really hustled and I was impressed by how much they can do in a few hours.  They protected everything with blankets, plastic wrap, etc., and all of our stuff arrived without any damage.  The only reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because of some miscommunication on their end about the charge for driving time.  When I booked over the phone, I asked whether I would be charged for the driving time from their company location to my old place, and then from my new place back to their company.  They told me that I would not be charged for this.  The only driving time included would be between my old and new place.  When it came time for the movers to give me the bill, they had included the additional driving time.  I told them what I had been told on the phone.  They did remove part of the driving time, but still left the charge for driving back to their company location.  So be aware that you will likely be charged for this.

I chose nw movers based on the reviews here. Couldn't have made a better decision.From the get go, I knew they were more upfront and honest, as they asked more detailed questions about my move, which no other company took the time to do. They had me email over an inventory so they could give me a rough estimate. They do give you a time range for completion (4-6 hours etc) which I get is in the best interest. Others had told me a precise hour figure which never happens. I had a range of budget ready to spend which made things easier.Down to earth movers. 4 hours which included taking apart three beds, one of which being a captains bed and putting them back together. Didn't feel like this was a shame in anyway, which I have felt from other moving companies in the past. I really dug the upfront honesty of how long they anticipate a move to take. Good business practice. More...

I recently hired Northwest for a local Beaverton move from a recommendation of a co-worker. One of the better decisions I've made in quite some time. The guys were efficient, on time, polite, and took care of my stuff most importantly.Pretty cool mention: couple hours after the move, I got a phone call from the lead mover on my move, letting me know that he had accidently over charged my card by $50. He let me know they would be issuing me a check asap for that. I then got a call from Kyle, double checking the best address to send the check to. Above and beyond in my book. More...

Dealing with movers, carpet people, and painters has killed me inside. Between people not getting back to me with bids, or pricing themselves out of the market. It's been challenging to put it nicely. We had NW movers out yesterday to load up two pods for us. We need to store our stuff for two weeks while carpet and paint is being done at the new place.Got back to me right away with a quote and showed up on time. Show up, do a good job and use solid communication. That's all I care about. Keeping it short, but I can recommend NW to all those in need of movers. Now on to the carpenter. More...

Smart Move made my move SO much easier.

James and Raf were on time and wasted no time getting to work. They had my old apartment cleared out in less than 40 minutes and moved everything into my new place just as quickly. I will definitely use Smart Move the next time I move. They were great, can't recommend them enough! More...

I will never move without movers again! I requested several quotes on yelp and received a quick response from this company. Having never used movers before I learned a few things from receiving the quotes. Most places charge you for the time it takes to travel from their facility to your location. Some companies also charge for the extra supplies it takes to wrap and protect furniture. I chose this company because while it was not the lowest quoted hourly price, their location was close to me so travel time only cost about 10 minutes of my reserved time, they don't charge for the supplies to protect your furniture, and the 3 hour minimum didn't also come with a weekend premium charge. I scheduled a time between 2-2:30 on a Saturday. I received regular updates about where they were and when they would arrive. They got to my place about 2:45pm. I was very nervous about having movers because I couldn't remember how to disassemble the heavy electric couch and sleigh bed. They were knowledgeable, quick, and very hard working. The two movers really went above and beyond. They finished moving and reassembling everything in record time. At the new location they even helped flip some of the furniture for me so I could put the hard wood floor protectors on the bottoms. I would use this company again, and highly recommend them to help you with a stress free move! More...

2700 square feet in five hours. I was more then impressed. The four guys worked their butts off the entire move.1. Scheduling was really easy. The gentleman I spoke to answered all of my questions and provided additional information about moving in Oregon.2. They sent a confirmation email right after I booked the move. They also sent another email three days before the move to reconfirm with me.3. Movers were on time and like I said, worked their tails off. Wrapped everything and made use of two full trucks.Overall a great experience. Guys are paid by the hour but hustled for the entire move. More...

Moving companies terrify me. I've had nothing bad bad experiences, having moved five times over the past two years. There's always excuses whether it's from the driver who is always running late, or the office giving you the run around on when the movers will show. Slow workers who would smoke on the job. Not the case with Northwest.It was pretty clear to me early on that I'd have a better experience compared to the other times I've hired movers. Were fast to answer my initial email inquiry, within fifteen minutes. Movers called me morning of to let me know their eta. Carefully moved everything out of my apartment but didn't move at the pace of snails. Moving sucks point blank. Not with these guys. More...

Northwest movers came in for the save days before our other movers fell through. Things were in motion quick. We'd had our Las Vegas trip planned for months. Turns out our house ended up closing two days prior to us leaving. Hectic to say the least.PS, never hire off of Craigslist. Lesson learned. Thankfully the team at NW had a last minute cancellation. We had 2800 square feet which they were able to move in just over six hours. They brought in two large trucks and away they went. I didn't get home from vacation until last night, but everything seems to be in great condition. The guys hustled throughout the day and hardly took one break. Now the fun part begins, unpacking this cluster. More...

If you're in need of help moving, and you care about your stuff, hire smart movers. Assuming like others, i also picked smart move for the great reviews here on yelp. In my experience they measured well up to their ratings.James was the lead mover on our crew of three and showed he knew exactly what he was doing. It was pretty obvious that he was a very experienced mover, to me. The guys were efficient and were able to move our three bedroom home right inside of four hours. I watched as they carefully prepped the truck for the trip over to the new house. They took great care in showing how to efficiently load up a truck. Awesome job from beginning to end by smart move. Very satisfied with the move. More...

I requested quotes from a ton of moving companies here on yelp, nw movers were not the lowest quote I received but they were the best when compared with good reviews. I would say the only downside was they do not offer wardrobe boxes for use. Not a huge deal but the last company I used had a few to lend me. Again not a deal breaker. They were very responsive during the booking process as well.I was quoted 3-4 hours and ended up being on the lower end of the quote. I have a huge sectional that barely fits through my hallway's but they made it work with ease. The movers had a positive attitude although they were probably sucking in smoke from the wild fires. Was super smoggy that day. Most importantly nothing was broken, and all was handled in an efficient manner. More...

Since I couldn't set it all on fire and start over, I hired NW Movers; what a great experience, top to bottom!  Ed and James showed up on time and from the start of the move to the end, they were just incredible.  Great attitude, hustle and super-polite.  I only wish that I had asked for four movers and two trucks.  Two movers for an average household of two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a family room and a two car garage is not enough hands.  James and Ed rallied through, but I think it was too much for two guys to work that long and that hard (9 hours).  So seriously, insist on four movers.  Now here's the part where I get philosophical about hiring a moving company.  Some folks have bought into the myth that this kind of work isn't that valuable, so hey, just tip each mover $20-$40 for the whole day of work, and off they go.  NO.  Anybody that has the nerve to tip anywhere under $75 per mover should be horsewhipped.  For god's sake, you have the money to hire movers, do not get skint on the tip.  And you WILL buy them lunch.  I'm not talking about some Subway shit.  I mean, do you think this is a game  No, you're gonna get them custom sandwiches from New Seasons.  Because, again, these dudes are breaking their asses to move your stuff, they do it well and they deserve respect.

Riley and Sean are the best in the business.  They were prompt, ready to work, had suggestions for ways to protect our belongings (we had self packed), and even helped transporting some things in their truck.  They were careful with our items, intelligently moved items efficiently and diligently.  They have an amazing attitude and smile.  Really enjoyed working with them, and used them again two weeks later to move out a storage unit.  They are strong, and took heavy, big items up two flights of stairs!  You will be amazed with the professionalism of this pair.  We hired them after reading their 5-star reviews and I know why.  I trust them, and recommend them highly.

Great experience with northwest movers. Didn't line them up until about a week before my move. First time around when I called they said they were fully booked. I asked if I could be placed on a waiting list in case they get any cancellations. Luckily that somehow happened so I booked their services.I asked them to show up around nine when my storage was set to open. The three guys arrived just a little after 9. They did call me while they were on their way. I had a large three bedrooms home worth of stuff filled in a ten by thirty unit. The move ended up being complete within four hours time which included shuffling things down the freight elevator at the storage facility. I took note that they were careful and not just with the boxes labeled fragile. They were smooth with everything. Took me six hours to move my last go about.I also liked the man I spoke with during booking. Was responsive through calls and emails confirming leading up to my move. The initial quote was sent out through yelp which they answered around 20 mins later.No extra charges for gas or stairs etc. Straight forward about the price up front. They also accept credit cards which was huge to me. More air miles for me. Great work. More...

Last Friday I moved with northwest movers, I had an unforeseen event which left me with three days notice to pack up and make it happened. Anxiety was off the charts.Didn't really have time to get many quotes but I reached out to these guys and another company company. I went with NW due to the positive reviews here on yelp. To be honest, I figured i would be dismissed as I was calling last minute. Luckily they had a cancellation on the day I needed, although they were full that morning they said they could make the afternoon happen.Was expecting to take a decent financial hit as moving isn't cheap from past experiences. They offered a fair rate to my relief. The hustle that the movers showed was a breath of fresh air. Paying for a service by the house can be gut wrenching. I've had companies literally drag their feet before to milk time. Not these guys. Wasn't charged anything extra for all of the plastic wrap they used either. Tipped the guys well and they were on their way. They helped level out my stress meter, and turned a usually terrible experience into a pleasant one. More...

I've never handed out a five star review towards a moving company, and I've moved a ton. My boyfriend use to be in the military. I've been apart of the worst of the worst Thankfully the experience with Northwest was the opposite. They were incredible, I was genuinely impressed with the entire process. On day one they had four guys come in to pack my house. Four hours later and they were done. On to the next day, all the furniture was out of the house within three hours time for 2,800 square feet. The protection they used while moving my stuff was simply awesome. Not a single item wasn't wrapped (see my photo). They used thick blankets first followed by wrap. The movers were polite and upbeat which was nice to see. They are the only movers I would use from here on out, and they also came in way lower then their initial estimate.They were also the first company to respond here on yelp. I highly recommend them.

We had to do our second move within a months time. This time a rental property we own on the waterfront. The last company we used was phenomenal, but they wernt available on the date we needed. Northwest movers were equally just as good. They were careful, and very polite. They were recommended by a friend. We now have two moving companies we feel very comfortable using for all of our future moving needs.They also moved our piano. In the initial conversation they informed me they no longer offered that service. When the movers arrived they wrapped it up and had it out the door within 5 minutes of arrival. Great job guys.

The other reviews are spot on. I've never felt like I've got my money's worth after dealing out serious money for a moving crew. Smart movers changed my opinion on movers in general and restored a little bit of faith. The team showed up and realized that I had nearly double the amount of boxes I had reported via email. They stated they would do their best to keep it within the quoted hours. They ended up still finishing within the quoted hours. I greatly underestimated how much stuff I had.To the crew. Very efficient and respectful. They were able to finish the move without damaging a single piece of furniture. I'm still cheap so I had a lot of Ikea furniture that most likely wouldn't have survived a typical move. They made my move between apartments seem near effortless. I was surprised that they didn't charge me for any of the wrap they used on my stuff. They used quite a bit of it. Great service and I'm impressed. More...

Smart movers came to the rescue and saved the day. The first company we had booked with gave us a huge window of arrival.  11-3 was their estimate on when they'd being showing up . Wasn't too happy about it but the building manager told us at the last minute we would need a firm arrival time, as other residents were moving out the same day.I spoke with Kyle who helped me schedule the move. I felt more secure with them not only for the firm arrival time but he asked me a multitude of questions in order to put together the best estimate which the other company  not done.  The movers wrapped my stuff and were careful throughout the three hours it took from point a to point b. Unfortunately were moving again in 6-8 months as were in temp housing at the moment. They will be my first and only call assuming their services are available. More...

Great experience, fair price. I booked a move for Friday morning, arrival window was 9-9:30 am. I got a call around 8:45 saying they were running late and would be there between 9:30-9:45, but they still arrived by 9:30, within the window. The two movers introduced themselves, and were polite and courteous. They were very efficient, and had my storage unit packed up within the hour. One more hour for unloading and they were done. I paid a 3 hour minimum but it was still more affordable than a competitor. More...

Communication is key when running any service oriented business just as much as the service being professional. Steve from Smart Movers has been very helpful in this area and saves me the trouble of looking up specific information myself. Even though they were moving offices, he was able to fulfill his promise ASAP of getting back to me first thing in the morning, even as I was contacting them right before their closing time.He was able to address my questions very clearly and I appreciate him for the attention to any possible followup questions. Thank you Steve for your help! More...

Amazing response time from Tom! He emailed me back within FIFTEEN minutes of my emailing the company. Very professional and very detailed answers. They left me with all the information I needed to decide if this was the right company for me. Their rates are great, with no hidden costs. There are a variety of different options when it comes to insurance. Tom assured me that their employees are great and accidents rarely happen. BUT if accidents were to happen (because they do), they have a great plan to remedy any damage or problems.Overall, great customer service and I walked away with not only all of my questions answered, but with a great company I would definitely use!

So I am shopping moving companies and wanted to know more about Smart Move Portland. I am already blown away by their customer service. I sent them an email with a few questions I had at 2:12pm and less than 30 minutes later I had a response. And on a Sunday I got service that fast. Impressive, I must say.It wasn't  just any response either. You know like the standard, "We have received your messgae. We will get back with you on the next business day." No, I got a detailed response to my specific questions. Responses were so detailed that I don't  have any more questions because I got more info than I needed. Great job Smart Move Portland. More...

Relocated to Portland on short notice. Needed an reliable group to help me unload a truck only and booked the big 3 (Bryce,Cameron and Grayson). The pricing was very fair and nothing changed the day of the move. Everyone was on time on a Saturday morning and moved efficient. Pleasant group of guys and we will use in the future on next move.Big thanks to Bryce, Cameron and Grayson - great ambassadors for any business. More...

Thank you North West movers for such a great experience. The service is very friendly appreciating. The rates are the best with this company. The business has shown their full intended response and the management was really nice. I am impressed with the dealing and the quality of services being offered by the North West business while I was looking for the truck on the renting basis two different times, and for both of the times the service was great. The North West helped us do the right thing and a detailed guidance for all the issues related to our shifting stuff through trucks. More...

Needed to find movers just a few days out and Kyle accommodated my move within 3 days based on my painters.  Prices were clear upfront.  Bryce, Trevor and Grayson were professional, fast and organized moving my stuff from a storage unit to my house.  Prices were fair and was happy to have the option for three guys b/c the work done fast and efficiently.  Moving is never fun but the guys made it stress free and fast.  Highly recommended.

This company did a good job, they didn't break anything or scratch any walls. I was a little worried because our entry way and stairs are a bit tight and the things we had to move were on the larger side but they managed to get everything upstairs in great condition.  There was a slight misunderstanding and the owner was very quick to rectify the situation, it's nice as a customer to feel like you are heard and that they want to ensure you are completely satisfied with the situation.

I had a very good moving experience with NW Movers.  Their hourly rates for 4 guys with a big truck were about the same as everyone else I called (I called all the shops on Yelp with solid reviews), and they were available on my move date with about 1. 5 weeks advance notice.They were running 20-30 mins late that morning, but I got a call in advance letting me know why (minor truck issue).  When they arrived, they got right to work.  I was moving from a 3-story townhome, so lots of stairs. They did a good job navigating the stairs.The guys themselves were friendly.  I'd guess they may have been college students (athletes probably, based on fitness!). They handled my furniture pretty well, though they balanced that by also working quickly.They did a solid job disassembling some larger furniture, and putting it back together that afternoon at my new home.  They had to take off a door to get some furniture down into my basement, and they had the tools to do that safely and quickly.  The door went back on no problem.Alltogether, my move was reasonably priced (about $1300 for all day, including the truck and labor).  It was my first time using a moving company (rather than friends + uhaul), and I'd definitely do it again if needed.

I moved to downtown Portland. I was recommended by a coworker. I was told the movers would arrive between 9 and 9:30. At 9:15 Matt, Robin, and Rafael arrived and moved all of my boxes and furniture. The guys were great and didn't damage anything. They helped me rebuild some furniture on the other end. Thanks!Took a star off because the person taking down my information got both my email and phone number wrong which resulted in the driver not being able to get a hold of me. More...

We've now used Northwest Movers 4 times over the past two years. I've had James as my crew lead twice now. Every time it seems to be the same type of service. Although James has always lead the way, his counter parts are great as well. No Scratches or nicks to the walls since they were covered and items were moved around with the best care.

My experience with NW Movers was pretty good, but not perfect.  They were late to get started but didn't charge me for the extra driving time which I appreciated.  They also left a piece of our bed frame at the old apartment that I had to go back and get myself...Considering all that though, they didn't scratch any walls, didn't damage any furniture (including large glass table top), worked pretty quick.  Not too much to complain aboutI would still recommend them to people.  Thanks NW Movers!

NW Movers was a great choice for moving our office in May!  Their services were fairly priced and their employees were on time, friendly, and capable.  I would have felt a little more comfortable if I had received a written contract or confirmation regarding our move, but all ended well.  I would definitely recommend them.

This review was initially longer, but it has been amended after being contacted and resolved by the new ownership. -------------------Briefly, my movers James and Blake were friendly upon arrival and quickly got to work moving my 2br apartment to a house across town. There were some severe issues getting my queen mattress and box frame down the stairs. So much so that I had to dismantle the stairs' handrails so they could squeeze them down. I didn't have to do this for my initial move-in. Even with the handrails removed, my box frame was torn badly, scuffed up, and perhaps 30-45 minutes of move time was wasted while they were trying to figure it out. The rest of the loading went smoothly. There was a 15 minute trip to my new place, and the guys asked if it was okay for them to take a half hour break. I said sure, no problem, just asking that they not take too long as rain was forecasted and the clouds were gathering. An hour later they arrive at my new place and begin unloading. I realized after already paying they had misquoted my total move time by including this extended break in my final move cost. The unloading went mostly smoothly as well, aside from ever-increasing rain accompanying mud and wet furniture.Near the end, they showed me there was an accident; my granite tabletop had fallen over in their truck because it wasn't properly tied down. It had broken into two large pieces, destroying it. They admitted fault, apologized profusely, and offered to take off some from the move or to file insurance. They offered to charge me just 3 hours instead of 4, which would have saved me about $100. Problem is, the tabletop was expensive, so I said I'd rather file insurance and have them work it out. Plus they admitted if they charged me less, it would come out of their paychecks, which didn't seem right to me. After I paid up (and tipped), I contacted the manager. Without going into all the details, the cheapest local granite quote (after hours of work on my part) came to be about $600 for similar type tables, while an actual match would've cost upwards of $2000. However after many emails and 1.5 months of waiting, when the final insurance check came in, I received only a check for $200. I contacted the manager one more time about this shortfall, and was told "We carry the same insurance as all other moving companies which covers $0.60 per pound." and that he "did some research and found that the "furniture connextion" in beaverton has several granite tables ranging anywhere from $150-$200.00. They are closing within the next month hence why the great pricing." I'll leave it to the reader to decide if that was a reasonable response and resolution to my broken table.----------------------After posting my original review of 2 stars, I was contacted by new ownership and offered reimbursement for my expenses as a result of the less then stellar original resolution. My move was 4 months ago and the new owner Max went out of his way to fix a problem he wasn't involved with. Accidents and damages happen when moving, so it really comes down to how willing your movers are to set things right. With this speedy conclusion, I have no problems recommending them. More...

We discovered Northwest Movers on Yelp and found them to be extremely helpful and professional.  James, Brock and Cameron did a great job of helping us move out of our condo and into our new home.  I was worried as we were moving a number of large items including a refrigerator and washer dryer.  The movers did a great job of packing up our belongings so that nothing was damaged in transport and did nice work loading and unloading the large heavy items out of our 5th floor condo and up some steps into our new home.  The price quoted was very fair and in-line with other companies in the area and the movers worked very hard to get everything moved in a timely manner. I am extremely satisfied with the quality of Northwest Movers and will recommend them to any friends looking to move in the future.  Thank you so much James, Brock and Cameron! More...

Kyle, Dane, and Noble helped us move about two years ago. I called them again for a move headed across the country since I was so thrilled with their work.

24 March 2016

We hired them twice within the past 4 months: the time when we sold our home and when we purchased a new house.  Cameron, James and Raf helped us when we moved into an apartment and Raf and Nick helped us moving into a new house.  At the both time we called only a few days before the moving day and we were happy that they were able to squeeze us in their schedule.  I personally Thank Raf and Nik for granting my request of not wearing shoes at our new home (well, we just cleaned the carpet and we have a toddler and I'm Japanese!).  I put a big canvas cloth in the formal living room by the front door and asked them to put boxes and furniture as much as they could.  And once the canvas area was full they removed their shoes and moved the boxes to the assigned rooms.  I know it was not easy so, Much Arigato!!  We moved on a week day and my husband was at work at the both time.  Moving with a toddler was already handful but those guys made it much easier for me.  Thanks!  We will definitely hire them if we ever move again.

29 December 2015

They were great from the beginning when responding to my request for a quote.  I had to update my inventory list several time as well as change my move date twice since our  closing kept getting pushed back.  They were extremely patient and worked with me through every step.The day of the move, James and his team called and let me know they were on their way and were great with communication!  I never had any concerns.  They took their time and made sure everything was wrapped up and protected on the truck.  We had several stops but I never felt like they rushed or took any shortcuts.  There was a small step fee that I wasn't expecting but it wasn't a big deal since I understood that they original quote was an estimate and the guys were so great!

As a senior move manager who has a business moving Seniors, I chose Nw Movers after having poor experiences with three other moving companies.  My move days must go perfectly for my clients.  The most recent move was with the crew of James, Jacob, and Mitch? These guys came earlier than usual to accommodate my schedule.  They hustled from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., never once giving me any attitude about my requests.  The crew was very friendly and professional throughout the very wet day.  All the furniture was protected and handled with care...no breakage or damage to anything.  Because of their fast work, they saved my client money and enabled my team to begin unpacking and setting up my client's new home, which I really appreciate!  Will definitely use again.

My ONLY gripe with this company is that they charge from the time they leave their office. It worked out ok for us since we had a morning slot. I can imagine if you're in the afternoon you might be paying a decent amount for travel. However, during initial phone conversation the employee ran be through all of the charges and was upfront about the drive time. My moving experience matched that of the office service. The floor protection was nice considering it was raining substantially or the entire move. I know James was the foreman or so it seemed. He and his partner were very careful with my stuff. More...

James, Cameron, and Jacob did a wonderful job handling out 10 by 20 storage space. I'm a tough cookie to please. I thought they did a good job representing their company,and I even called the office to commend them of the job well done. It was hard for me to hire a moving crew since the company that put me in there wasn't the best. Note- It was pouring down rain and the guys didn't complain one bit. They all seemed to be friends as well. If you can work with people that you like, it makes your job that much more enjoyable.If you can, ask for the team mentioned above. Great service. More...

Nw Movers helped move by elder neighbor. During the parking situation. My car was behind their truck. While backing up they had slightly bumped one of my headlights, which resulted in a crack one of them. They immediately told my neighbor (as I was out of town) and left all of their insurance information with her. I got home and had a note on my door.They had looked up the cost of a new headlight from the dealership (Ford) and had already issued me a check to order a new one. These guys could have easily not set a word, and I'd never known who cracked me headlight. I command them for being honest and ethical. My neighbor had nothing but positive things to say about them. If I ever move in the future they will easily be my first call. More...

12 November 2015

My experience with this company: I called the night before (5:30PM) a half hour before they closed down for the night. Was really like shooting a monkey in the dark. I half didn't even expect them to answer let alone be able to help me out (Any company for that matter). Was actually on the U-Haul website ready to reserve a truck had a moving company not paned out. Dispatch asked me for an inventory of items that were needing to be moved. I did my best but in the time crunch I soon realized I had greatly underreported the amount of stuff I really had.They showed up at 2:00. I had to take what I could get although of course I would of preferred to move in the morning. The floor/ door protection was a nice touch as my house had just closed. It was important not to leave any nicks, marks, or any damage since the house had already closed. They used a mile of the stretch wrap stuff which I know isn't cheep and no I wasn't charged for it, even though they ran through an entire roll. Long story short the guys worked their tales off until 8:30. So the majority of the move was in the dark. Not fun. Good attitudes in a rather stressful situation.I highly recommend these guys, great movers who deal well with adversity. More...

Here's the goodies on my move. Initial contact with the company was better than others I contacted in the area. They were the fastest to respond to my voicemail. I did hear back from 2 others of the 6 I called. Bonus points there? Although I think every business should respond to a customer inquiry, maybe today's generation isn't down with that? So a great start.I've moved many times, and after a few moves, you can distinguish between a competent moving company, and an incompetent one.  These guys at Northwest are competent and know their stuff!   On more than one occasion, I had a company have to take more than one trip.  Northwest Movers were able to get everything in one run and still had about a foot left of space. So it's safe to say they are experienced Tetris players, and their forethought will save you time, money, and hassle.When you think of movers there is a certain stereotype that comes to mind. I'll save the explanation but I think most of you can paint a pretty good picture. These guys set the tone for a "different look" and I mean that in a good way. My only knock and this is more than likely me being picky, is that I had to purchase the parking permit myself from the city of Portland. The movers themselves were fantastic and I have to agree with everyone on Yelp on their service. Good group of dudes, highly recommended! More...

I'm the wise person who used movers off of craigslist for my last move.. need I say more? Northwest movers didn't have to do much to beat those guys but I can really say I was indeed impressed. I initially found them on Yelp and gave them a shout. James and team were friendly and a pleasure to work with. Luckily I was a few miles from storage so there wasn't much of a drive charge. Unfortunately I'll be moving next year, but they'll be getting a call from me. More...

They get five stars from me but its a close call and here is why. The last time I moved I used the next highest rated company on yelp behind these guys. I'll let you do the research. The first time I moved I was provided with wardrobe boxes at no cost. I also wasn't charged for drive time. I was however charged for shrink wrap.Insert NW Moves. They didn't have the wardrobe boxes but I guess I just expected they would. I wasn't charged for the shrink wrap which was nice. I was charged for drive time. I brought this to the owners attention and he walked me through the reasons why they charge drive time. It was a ton of information, but it all made sense in the end.Turns out their tariff actually sets the rules/rates etc. I figured companies just went out and said hey, I'm charging $100 per hour and thats the bottom line. Not the case. Strict rules they must follow from ODOT after speaking with the owner.I wasn't happy about the drive time or lack of wardbrobe boxes. I was happy with the team's work, which is why I'm giving five stars. More...

Stephen was the lead for my move back when he worked for NW Movers. They were a little more expensive as I stated in my previous review, however they were well worth the extra penny. I've moved several times in the past and was regularly greeted with older grumpy men. What a breath of fresh air to have some respectful gentleman show up to move my stuff.Although it wasn't the largest move, from what I saw I was very impressed. Didn't hear a single peep of negativity and it just so happened to be one of the warmest days of the summer. I think your in good hands with smart move. More...

Compared to the last company (won't mention names) I used, I was happy with the service from Northwest Movers.I thought they came as advertised. Door jams, floor runners, shrink wrap for my furniture, blankets, the whole package. I ended up needing two (2) trucks which added more money to the bill but it beats doing two trips over 30 miles each way. Now, I know my move was going to come with a hefty bill, but when you're moving 4000 ft, you're already aware it's going to cost you!  The crew that came was respectful  and lively! They didn't look disheveled and uninterested or look like they just rose from a grave! Seriously having flashbacks from the last company I used! Creepy.... They took longer with the appliances to avoid scuffing up my floors or damaging my walls. I was very appreciative of that because, I definitely didn't want a hassle getting my security deposit back.  Overall, I had such a good experience with Northwest!  I doubt will be moving again but if for some reason we were, Northwest is who I'd call!

2 September 2015

I'm not moving for a while, but wanted to get an idea of the cost and what would be involved.  Had to make a comment on their excellent customer service!  First,  they got back to me later the same day that I asked about the move.  In response to my asking about pricing, Paul was very transparent about it and answered all my questions thoroughly.  Evidently they use a two man crew and a 24" truck for smaller local moves under 50 miles.  I didn't realize this but because of all the regulations in the state of Oregon, they don't actually set their own rates, they have to go by regulations, so it was pretty clear what they can offer and for how much.  I was glad to know that they're on the Dept. of Transportation's authorized movers list- I've heard if you go with a company that isn't on the list your stuff won't even be insured!  Paul offered to have their estimator come over to do a full inventory of my place since my move would be over 50 miles.  Then they can calculate about how much it would be based on the distance and weight, which seems like it would be more accurate compared to giving a list over the phone.  Other movers have wanted to tell a price based on weight before they even saw my stuff, which was a big red flag.  I could tell this company really cares about their customers after seeing all the detail in Paul's response.  He even told me all about the different ways they can wrap fragile items for me so they won't get any scratches- I was worried about it but he set my mind at ease.  They're #1 on my list for when I'm ready to move!

These guys were extremely helpful with a last minute move request. I needed help packing a ton of boxes and moving a couple miles away outside of the city. I thought I was going to have to rent a uhaul truck and do it all myself, considering it was last minute and needed to be done on a Friday afternoon. These guys took care of it though, and were extremely fast, professional and courteous. The quickness is something I really want to place emphasis on because man, I've used movers in the past that charge by the hour and they work like it! They would drag their feet, carrying as little as possible per trip, and it would just be a miserable experience. Not Northwest Movers. They moved in and out the door as quick as lightening, working up a sweat but not stopping to take the time to breathe, really. It was amazing to watch the hard-boiled dedication that came along with this team.  If you're on a tricky street, I recommend ensuring accommodation for their moving truck ahead of time. It saves a lot of time. I live on a narrow street and I had to give a couple of my neighbors a heads up that the driveway would be blocked for less than an hour. They were totally fine with it, but the movers told me they sometimes get hassled about their large truck being in the way. So you know, let people know!They don't charge for fuel, which is nice. I read on their site that if they get a parking ticket on your street (either where you're moving from or where you're moving to) that you have to take care of it. Which makes total sense. It was sincerely kind of them to not charge me for gas, because man, that can really rack up in those big hefty trucks! There are no hidden fee's and everything is pretty plain and simple for the average move job. I cannot stress enough how helpful these guys were! Thank you again, and for my next move, I'll definitely remember you! More...

25 July 2015

Pros:- Friendly, really know how to pack a truck.- Great customer service. I talked with all three of the guys individually, and they seemed like genuinely good people. - Fast while being careful at the same time.- Didn't take any breaks- Gentleman who I spoke with over the phone was great as well.Cons:- hard to get ahold of. I called twice, and didn't receive a call back. I didn't leave a voicemail, however once I sent an email I had a response within minutes. I'd say they prefer email contact as opposed to telephone? Or maybe not enough people in the office.- 3 hour minimum. Which I understand is state regulated, and depends on what tariff you are in for Oregon.- Charge to and from where they keep their trucks, which is in the Bethany/Cornell area. Once again a rule in their tariff.Other then the issue of getting ahold of a live person, I really appreciated the work they did for me. More...

Moving day was coming up, and we were in trouble. We had packed up all we owned and rented the truck we needed, but at 10 p. m. the night before our move, we realized we totally underestimated our ability to move all of our stuff. I had a bum knee since a recent ACL surgery). Starting at 7 a.m. the day of our move, I called half a dozen movers, all of whom were booked solid for the day - except Kyle's company, which was booked all morning into early afternoon. However, they offered to help us out starting at 3:00 pm. They were willing to drive all the way to Canby to help us load up! By noon, with the help of some neighbors, we realized we actually needed the movers to help us unload at our new home in Forest Grove. One quick phone call later and we were all set. Kyle and Nobel were there even before we arrived to unload. They had already been working all day, but they were cheerful and motivated in the freezing cold. I watched them a few times bringing items in, and noticed that they were very careful coming near and through doorways. I've never been completely satisfied with professional movers, until these guys. If we ever need anything moved, we are definitely calling them again, no question. More...

19 July 2015

Called for a quote for a move from Portland to Seattle. Turns out they don't offer out of state moves, although they said they are working towards that in the future. I didn't understand the licensing that goes behind a legal moving company. Kyle simply informed me they were not authorized for out of state moves. He easily could have misinformed me on the situation and taken the job. This company seems to be doing things by the book. The reason for the five stars is the honesty and the recommendation they gave me. After providing me with another company that could get my request handled, he thanked me for the call. Now that's good business. More...

Many thanks to the team at NW Movers! Todd, Kevin, and Raf, did an outstanding job moving our houses in Lake Oswego. We were easily anticipating ten hours plus. They had it done in 7! It did take two trips, however they brought their biggest truck (26) feet. This didn't bother me one bit, as we were so eager to get the move completed. We did the math and it would have cost us considerably more for them to haul out a second truck. Nothing was broken or damaged. Everything is in great shape! Highly recommend! More...

The office: Never had an issue reaching a representative from the company. Called and someone answered right away. I could tell Kyle has a good amount of knowledge for the moving industry. Asked me quite a few questions, which I liked. I felt he had a grasp of the situation, and the comfort level was through the roof due to how detailed he was.The movers: I hired these guys because of all the great reviews, but also for the fact that they looked young and in shape. What did I get when they arrived? Young in shape guys. I've moved several times before and have been faced with the 40 year olds who are winded after a flight of stairs, then settle for a smoke break right after. This was without a doubt a breath of fresh air. I'm upset that I cannott remember all of their names (sorry) but I know one was James for sure. They took care of all my furniture and were a delight to work with. I'd say they lived up to the hype. More...

I had originally scheduled with another moving company, but backed out last minute after seeing some negative feedback online. I pulled these guys up and they were available on fairly short notice.

It was a little late but for the great quality of work I was very happy. More...

They might be a little more expensive then a few others in the area, but totally worth the extra cash. They carry a three hour minimum. Some carry a two. We only needed them for two but hey, I was advised at how heavily regulated moving is in the state of Oregon. Most companies can't even set their own rules/rates. A wise investment! More...

Thank you Stephen, Todd, and Kevin. The guys were pleasant to be around, and made light of a very stressful situation. The reason I'm doing five stars as opposed to four is for the communication from the team and the office. The guys had dinged a wall with a dresser (minor dent to dry wall) but notified me right away. It really wasn't even that bad but they insisted on telling their boss, even though I pleaded that that wasn't necessary. Later that night I received a call from Kyle asking me to send him photos of the wall. I sent the photos, and two days later I had a contractor out giving me a bid which was $175. I paid the contractor to patch up the wall and sent Kyle the invoice. Within three days, I had a check from Northwest Movers for $175.I really was not going to go through the trouble of getting the wall fixed because the guys did such a great job, but the team was persistent that the company would take care of it. They went above and beyond and exceeded my expectations. For that I am grateful. More...

I hate moving and up until Northwest Movers, I've had nothing but terrible experiences with movers. I like to negotiate flat rates with moving companies because I've been burned before by snail-like movers who hold my stuff hostage until I pay heavily inflated rates way above the estimates. Then after paying, they hold their hand out for a tip and leave before I find half my stuff broken. I saw the reviews for Northwest Movers and I was hesitant, to say the least. They don't do flat rate, but their rates are very reasonable and they work so incredibly fast, you almost have to stand aside to not be in the way. The thing I loved the most, and there was a lot to praise here, was how they communicated with me and were so proactive in working with me to do the job to my satisfaction. Everything moved arrived perfectly safe and the guys were careful. Nothing that could cost me any extra money was done without asking me first and going over what it was and how much it would cost.These guys are as good as their reviews, if not better. Moving can be such a stressful, awful experience, but it doesn't have to be with companies like this. I move stuff all over the country for work and I just wish they didn't only service the Portland area. More...

What a fantastic company with dedicated, swift movers. I was lucky enough to come across their company online and I was glad I did. Their rates are fantastic and their moving request form online made the process of finding and talking to the company effortless. They got back to me in under an hour, which is really rare for any company. These are the movers to hire if you want workers with integrity who care about your belongings. I was worried about several of my fragile items in the process of moving, but the movers assured me that they would take care with the items, and not a scratch was found on any of my breakables. I cannot recommend these guys enough. More...

Northwest Movers really exceeded my expectations.  They communicated better than any other movers I've ever worked with, helping me sort out my move logistics through multiple conversations prior to the move date. Curteous, efficient and considerate of my belongings, the team helped me move in record speed.  They asked appropriate questions about my stuff in order to pack my storage pod efficiently.  It was like they were masters at tetris or something.After shipping the pod, when I arrived to unpack it, I was amazed.  Due to the fact that my furniture and valuables were caringly wrapped in furniture pads and bubble wrap, NOTHING was damaged or had jostled around.  I've had other movers break furniture of mine mid-move and I had zero problems with these guys. Super stoked!! More...

Although we had lots of offers with help moving, moving day ended up landing on a Friday. Everyone I know works M-F and I doubt any of them would schedule a vacation day to help me move. Our house closed the same day as the house we were moving into, so we had an 8 hour window to move the contents of a 2 story 2100sqft house.I rented a "pod" type moving container and loaded all of my boxes into it. This was nice as I was able to get everything loaded into the pod as I boxed it up. Now all I have left is all the heavy furniture. I remember that the last time I moved it was ridiculous just how much the U Haul alone cost, not to mention the sore aching back. So, we figure we need to check into a mover.After reading all the positive reviews on Yelp my wife and I decided to give NW movers a call. Very helpful and friendly on the phone, very reasonable rates, and they provide the truck, nice. Book it.The morning of the move they showed up on time. After a quick walk through of the house, they started right to work. They brought moving blankets and wrapping material for all our scratchable / breakable furniture. These guys never stopped. I don't think they even stopped for a bathroom break. 5 hours later, done.I could not have pulled this off with out them. These guys were great. Cannot say enough good things about them. Another winner Yelp find. More...

While preparing for our huge move to and through the PNW, we found Northwest Movers on Yelp.  The communication has been fabulous, the guys were terrific to plan and work with, and the price was right.  I appreciate their attention to detail and how easy the process was.  Communication is key when dealing with movers, and these guys have it down!  Thank you!

I recently helped my sister move in Oregon.  I strongly encouraged her not to hire a moving company.  I previously thought most moving companies were largely a waste of money if you have friends and family available to help.  I was absolutely wrong.  My perception of moving companies was shattered by Northwest Movers.  The workers arrived with their vehicle early to the house.  They were extremely diligent workers, polite and respectful from start to finish.  Most importantly they treated every possession with extreme care and caution.  Not a single item was damaged in the move and the walls at both properties were not scuffed, scratched or damaged.  I have a newfound respect for movers and the value of a stress free moving experience.  It is honestly a great deal more affordable than I originally anticipated and saves you several additional trips between the properties.  Additionally you do not have to worry about tracking down friends and family to help.  The best part of the experience was relaxing with some pizza and beer well ahead of schedule and with significantly less back pain.Fantastic job Northwest Movers.  I cannot recommend this company and their services highly enough.

One of the businesses I work for needed to relocate down in Portland and we used these guys who were great! Well worth it!

We hired Northwest Movers for our T-Shirt shop relocation, being seasonal we don't have all our help year-round - enter our buddies the finest Portland movers, not only on Yelp, but period! It wasn't any issue for them to accommodate our split inventory and the fact that almost half of the racks and showcases ended up going to storage, separate locations of course. All boxes ended up in their respective destinations and there were no losses, nor were there any damages. Being involved in multiple operations I really appreciate the efficient no-hassle services, the convenience, and the affordable rates. Northwest get my five stars for Portland Movers on Yelp. Thanks guys! More...

My boyfriend and I relocated to Portland to be closer to his business partner. We've been moving around a lot, and have found it to be increasingly challenging to lug around all our stuff, because we accumulate so much as we travel! This time around, we decided to ask for some help. We called these guys because of all the stellar reviews they received on here. After our experience, we understand why they receive a lot of positive feedback. They worked hard to minimize the stress of moving. They started off on the right foot when they showed up on time.  I was worried that they were going to break our things, but they made sure to pack everything cautiously (which I really appreciate.) They were professional, nice, and fast! Nothing came up broken, nothing turned up missing, and the guys weren't sketchy. I wouldn't hesitate to call these guys if we had to move again. More...

We moved from deepest southwest to even deeper southwest, a large house inhabited by a large group of rowdy people. The movers showed up at 8:55 am five minutes early! Yay! They were really a lot of fun, they're from Chicago originally and they moved all the stuff quickly without spilling a drop or breaking one single item. We are calling this move the "Northwest Movers Move," and we write this to make sure that every single person in Portland knows that this business is the best moving business that you're going to possibly find around here. I don't want to EVER move again, but if I did I would make sure these folks were involved. I know this company isn't one of the biggest moving companies or the Yelpiest moving companies in Portland, but I think these people are pretty much the ones you'd need to hire. Elizabeth will answer  your phone call and your emails. She's the Office Manager. Barbara is the one of the managers also, she's very nice. Mike and Carl were the ones who came out to our place, emptied it, and then refilled the new house will all our stuff! We spent nearly eight hours with these two and they made it a lot of fun (way more fun than I expected).Moving is awful. Back. And forth. Back. And forth. Mike carries your boxes and furnitures gently, swaying, his shiny red headphones on his ears, skin-tight t-shirt and Levi's leveled tightly on his body, moving to a beat that only he can hear. Carl dances like nobody's watching. He's tall, he's faster than his teammate and it almost seems like he's rushing through the whole moving business as quickly as is humanly possible.We were still getting to know these guys when moving was finished, we had to take our teammates/new friends out for pizza and a quick beer after all the chaos of moving day was done. DUDE there was so much heavy stuff--two loveseats, a giant mega pull-out sofa sleeper and sectional, a bunk bed, grandma's grandfather clock, a ton of vinyl, 30 years worth of comic books, two juicers, a dog house, a 30-gallon saltwater aquarium, and a box of live crickets. Not a single thing was lost or stolen or dropped, everything made it safely and successfully into the new place with barely half a panic attack. This duo (Mike and Carl) should be convicted of wonderfulism, and sentenced to 18 to 24 months of thank yous. It also wasn't that expensive. The accounting work was easy and almost painless. We will still be able to afford Christmas presents and parties this year. It's so easy for professional movers to be stupid expensive, but it just wasn't that expensive and what it did cost us was totally worth it. So--one one hand, Northwest Movers worked hard and didn't screw anything up, and on the other hand they charge reasonable rates. The most un-nightmarish move I've ever dealt with. When you absolutely have to move, Northwest Movers will help you endure. More...

After flying home to Oregon to assist my Dad with arranging a move from his residence in Oregon City to a new place near Wilsonville, I found Northwest Movers and immediately chose them due to their positive reviews. Despite the cold and rainy weather, our movers Kyle and Dane were on time, ready to work and seemed happy to help. They busted their butts and got the job done right - nothing went wrong and careful attention was paid to furniture and breakables.A huge thank you for helping my aging father with a big move. We really appreciate your hard work. More...

My stepbrother needed help moving an old antique parlor organ that he inherited from his uncle when he died. He asked me to help him move it while I was visiting over the summer for 4th of July. I took one look at the thing, and I was like "dude, we're gonna need a bigger boat." The piece looked like it weighed like 500 pounds. I have an old core muscle injury and groin pull that's been nagging me for the past couple years so I'm not really supposed to lift heavy stuff.Anyway, I convinced my stepbrother to bring in outside help, and so I did a bit of research online(a two second quick search) and found these guys. They showed up and moved this old thing without any drama or anything. I'm not sure how their pricing compares because I didn't really check around and see what else is out there. I will say though that these guys were professional and seemed to be experienced even though they were younger than me. After it was moved, we inspected the organ thoroughly(insert "that's what she said" joke here) and it wasn't damaged at all during transit. I'd recommend these guys if you need to move something large and of monetary or sentimental value. More...

I've been in contact with Paul who explained the reasons for what happened the day of our move.  I understand now that they have been in a transition period with moving office buildings and having to stay within ODOTS regulations.  He was very apologetic and made things right by compensating us for the inconveniences we experienced that day.  I was very grateful for that.  This was a situation of misunderstanding and miscommunication.  Thank you Paul!

I recently moved from my apartment to a new house with my family and I hired this company to help me and really do the entire thing. There were several men who came over, all extremely professional, and eager to help. I had no issues with this company at all, they showed up on time, were very careful with all our stuff, and did it with a smile on their face. Not to mention the fact they got it done quickly and without any attitude (which is a huge plus for me). Bravo! More...

These guys were amazing for my move from a U-Pack facility on 11/16, I was able to book them last minute (on a Wed for Sunday move) without leaving a deposit or paying at that time, which was great since I wasn't getting my moving bonus until Friday from my work.  But they showed up and were quick and professional.  Mike was a little bit late (only by about 10-15 min) and I barely noticed except when they got to my place and that annoyed me because I want people on time when I'm paying by the hour and the moving truck shouldn't have arrived 15 min before him.  The only other thing, and I ONLY bring this up for the positive ending, is that I was told on the phone that weekends are a 2 hour min (their website states M-Th is a 2 hour min so I specifically asked for the weekend and Kyle said it was 2 hours then as well) well when they went to run my credit card the guy (unfortunately I didn't get his name but he was really nice) said "it's normally a 3 hour min but since there wasn't much stuff, I'll only charge the 2" the job, from start to finish was only 1.5 hours, even with Mike late.  That remedy was nice and I'm glad they only charged 2, since I was expecting that, but had they demanded me to pay the 3, I wouldn't have been happy so I just wish they were all on the same page with that.  Likewise, if the mover was just saying that to make me think I was getting a good deal, that was wrong as well.......either way, I was only charged what I had anticipated so it worked out.  I will definitely use them again if/when I move again :) More...

These movers are awesome. I was helping my friend in Portlad move. I was visiting out of town, and had no clue about the businesses in the area, so I hopped on yelp to search for a business. These guys showed up and were outstanding. They showed up on time and did a fantastic job. This is the best moving experiance I have ever experianced. They actually take care of your belongings. After I move, I notice that a lot of stuff is dammaged. NOT WITH THESE GUYS. All the stuff came out of the house with care, and arrived safe and unharmed. GREAT JOB. pick them, and you will not be disapointed. More...

We used NW Movers for a simple job of unloading a truck into our house and then going to storage to move things into storage (ok, not THAT simple).  The movers (this was in June, so I'm afraid I can't remember names) showed up on time and moved FAST.  There was some very heavy antique furniture they carried up a flight of stairs, complete with some difficult corners (ok, not simple AT ALL), and managed it with no damage.  They then zoomed to our storage unit and got everything loaded in quickly and professionally, including several musical instruments and amps that my brother (the owner of said equipment) was very concerned about.  They packed into the storage space perfectly and all in record time (time being a major issue with moving companies!)There was a bit of a kerfuffle with the charges, and Paul the owner (or co-owner) acknowledged we were owed a refund and said a check was forthcoming.  After a few weeks with no check, I called and made sure they had the correct address and he said they would cancel the first check and send a second.  That one also vanished in the USPS.  So, he cancelled that one (which is an expense for his company) and sent yet a third.  Neither of us could figure out what the Bermuda Triangle of checks was, as the third did not arrive either.  Being a suspicious person, I thought maybe they were just trying to get out of sending the refund, and I'm sure he was getting frustrated that they weren't getting here.  FINALLY, while we were out of town, he wrote to ask if he could just put it under our doormat which was fine with us as our housesitter could retrieve it.  So, he went out on a very dark and very stormy rainy night and did just that, calling us when he needed directions.I appreciated his extra effort very much to resolve the issue and of course felt bad about ever doubting him!The vanished checks will probably always remain a mystery, but we are very happy with this company and would certainly use them again.

This is a well run company and is very reasonably priced!  From the get go, they were very responsive and courteous.  In making my reservation, explaining the details, answering questions, and giving me a phone call to confirm the move. I was assigned three movers who called prior to arrival and arrived on time.  Very courteous guys and very strong too!!  We packed a lot of stuff in boxes already but there was still lot of loose items to pack.  They sold us a few boxes at reasonable prices and tape as well.  All items and furnitures were packed very professionally and handled with care.  Things that I didn't even care too much about were handled with excellent care.These guys work hard and fast.  They don't sit around and take their time even though they are paid hourly.  I highly recommend them.  When we arrived at our destination, they moved everything in quickly and exactly where we wanted them to.They made a otherwise stressful day very easy!

We were moved in a Jiffy, none of our stuff was damaged or broken (like it would have been if WE had moved it *ahem*) and it was really worth saving us the stress and the physical labor of movingHopefully we won't have to move again for a few years, but if we do, we'll call Northwest Movers again!

After supporting a local artist and making a big purchase on a piece, I needed to figure out how to move it from the gallery to it's new home. A friend refereed me to Northwest Movers and after a quick y3lp search I got the ball rolling with a phone call and a peek at their website. They took down some information and got me a quote, and set up a date & time that worked for me. Stress free moving at it's finest. If you are looking for some strong young gentleman to lift heavy, delicate, and valuable things for you, then give a call to Northwest Movers. They are helpful, flexible, and willing to go the extra mile to ensure a safe and timely move. Best movers I have used so far. Now I need to go thank my friend for putting them on my radar. More...

What sucks? Moving. What sucks even more? Helping family move out of town! So when I got the call it was no surprise that, "kill me now! " was the first phrase that popped into my head. Not being super familiar with Portland (other than Voodoo Doughnut and the Pearl District), I turned to my trusty fellow Yelpers and once again Yelp saved the day! They were on time, mindful with our things, and clearly knew what they were doing. Their knowledge made the process efficient time-wise and as stress free as possible. It was nice not to have to micro manage / shadow their every step. On top of it all they had pleasant attitudes. Competitive pricing, on time, knowledgeable AND friendly?! That's all anyone can ask for. So glad we found these these guys and very happy that we chose them for our moving services! More...

Let me first say that I had luck on my side the morning I called Northwest Movers. I had scheduled movers weeks prior to my move, made it clear how much I needed to move, so on and so forth. I had to move a three bedroom house into a two bedroom apartment, and without a lot of time. Moving day comes and the mover shows up with a pickup truck and an open trailer attached. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I'm thinking this will take all day, eat up all kinds of money and I was in no shape or mood to deal with an entire day of moving, I told them to leave and phoned in a message to their boss that I was very unhappy. I was moving across town and the convenience of movers is speed, in my opinion. If I wanted to spend an entire day moving, I'd have provided beer and pizza to my friends and saved some money.First off, Northwest Movers list their rates on their website - nobody in their industry really does that. The rates being listed so prominently speaks to honesty. I called Northwest Movers after finding their listing on Yelp, it was so very last minute, and they quoted me a reasonable price (for last minute service it was fantastic really), and had two movers available to help me move. My morning went from disastrous to overwhelmingly positive, they showed up within an hour ready to work! If you've moved as often as I have, you're familiar with the slow movers, who take a lot of breaks and chit chat outside after they put a load on the truck. It's pretty ridiculous. These movers had pep in their step and seemed to understand very well that time is money.These guys had all of my junk moved to my apartment by 1 pm. This is a three hour move folks, from the time I called to the time I was moved to my new place was a total of five hours, this includes travel time. From where I sit, that's pretty amazing. I was fully prepared to hear all the movers I called tell me they were booked up and couldn't help, I thought for sure I'd have to reschedule, mess with pro-rated rent, etc. The professionalism was astonishing, the time they spent was conscientious and they handled my things so delicately - like they were their own possessions! It was refreshing to find that the reviews were true - these guys are fantastic, I'll use them every move as long as I'm in Portland. More...

As slick as City Slickers in planning and as strong as Texas Cowboys in moving the herds (Your belongings), that is what we found out. My step brother was trying to move to Henderson Nevada from Portland Oregon. We found many moving services on the internet.  We checked up on the credibility of many of them.   Northwest Movers stand out from all of them.   Not only that, there are many great reviews here on Yelp as well.  With their extremely friendly customer inquiry service, we decided on using them.  The results proved that our hunch were right.   They went out of their way to help us, and we were both really happy with their service.   You don't even feel that you are working with strangers because they are so naturally friendly !  From our experience, we would say that they are the best moving services listed on the internet and Yelp.   No doubt about that !

On the morning of the move, they arrived right on time. They were very friendly, efficient, and careful throughout the moving process. I appreciated that they meticulously wrapped all my furniture before moving it out to the truck, and that they provided this service at no extra cost. They were also fair with pricing, staying within their quoted time and not charging me for the few minutes they took to put gas in the moving truck. Overall, this was the least stressful and most seamless move I've had. I highly recommend PCM! More...

This review is not for this company. Northwest movers bought the company I originally wrote this review for and yelp transferred my review to them.

Te mover called to say they would be 30-min to an hour late, but ended up on being 10 min late.  They were very fast and efficient. I had a particular piece that was a big pain to move and that I was really worried about breaking, and they moved it with out a scratch. More...

I have been recommending these guys to friends since my last move-in date of October 2011. I was moving from an upstairs apartment to another upstairs apartment, and I decided that there was No Way I was going to put myself through that horror. So I called PCM, and was quoted 3 hours of moving time, at $90 an hour. Worth it. So when they busted the move out in an hour and a half, and charged me accordingly, it was the best money I've ever spent. Thanks, boys. More...

The guys worked quickly, wrapping our fragile items/furniture and delivered in great condition. They are fairly priced, very professional and were such an incredible help! Thank you so much for everything! We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family! More...

I've been meaning to thank these guys with a post since June but hey what can I say, I'm lazy.  Fortunately Damon and the other mover (sorry forgot his name) were anything but lazy.  My wife and I moved out with a tight packed 24ft Penske truck and I called PCM from Utah 2 days before arriving.  They were able to squeeze me in for a great price.  They were on time, even calling in route which was a great touch and with my dad and I helping or getting in the way had a large house worth of stuff unpacked in  4 hours.  Incredible!Great to work with, extremely professional, and again just flat out busted their asses for me.  I'm sure we will be moving again after this year lease expires and these guys will be dealing with me again.Thanks Damon and crew!

simply awesome.  moving can be a horrible experience so really, anything that makes it just a little bit better totally has my vote. i called on a tuesday to ask to move that saturday.  luckily, they had an opening.  and unlike some other moving companies, they didn't have a 4 hour minimum on the weekend (which was great for my minimal amount of stuff).they called me saturday morning to let me know they were running ahead of schedule (yay!) and asked if it was ok to show up early.  um, hell yes.friendly, efficient, and super careful with my stuff.  despite my poor packing job and crushed boxes and 3 flights of stairs and tight corners, they were total troopers.  2 hours later, my possessions had been moved from beaverton to portland.  hopefully, i won't be moving again any time soon... but if i needed to, i'd call these guys again for a second date...

We hired 4 guys from Pacific Coast Moving to move our family of three from a 3 bed 2 bath 1600 sq ft 2 story house in Beaverton to a similar but larger 2 story home back in late August 2012. They showed up right on time and eager to get to work. I was surprised and pleased to see Dane as one of the four movers. In this day and age with corporate companies, you rarely get personal service from the owner!After a tour of our house and belongings, the guys went right to work. They were very professional and knew exactly what they were doing. They didn't even hesitate to get to work taking apart our big heavy teak sleigh bed frame. Dane even started tackling taking apart my daughter's crib! Of course, time is money and I knew he was better spent doing the heavy lifting so I quickly jumped in to take over.The guys really worked like a well-oiled machine, total Tetris experts if you ask me! And all of them were super nice too! They had to carry our washer and dryer upstairs in the new house and when they realized they wouldn't fit in the laundry closet, they were quick to find a solution by taking off the folding doors after making sure it was all right by us. They also were very responsive to where we wanted stuff placed in the house and absolutely nothing was broken in the move!In the end, they had to make 2 truck trips because we had so much stuff and they got it all done in just about 6 hours for a total of $840 (which is what they quoted us)!! What a bargain! Of course we tipped well and were overall very pleased with their service. We would hire them again in a heart beat and you should too!Thanks Dane! More...

Our two guys were definitely younger than most movers I've had over the years, but this move was a pretty easy one, and they were great. They were careful, quick, strong, and friendly!Only odd thing was that this company doesnt provide wardrobe boxes (for hanging clothes) to borrow like most other companies. More...

These guys are A-mazing! Damon, Beau and Alex came on on time and went straight to work. They were very professional but also had a great sense of humor which put us at ease. I chose this company based on the reviews on Yelp and I was extremely satisfied with the service. If you are looking for reliable, professional, affordable movers. This is the company to choose!Thank you guys for making our move a painless experience! More...

Well deserved 5 stars! They helped my boyfriend and I move this past weekend and let me tell you, I will never move without these guys again. First, they were one of the only moving companies that actually called me back same day (if at all) when I was looking for a quote, and their pricing is very reasonable with nothing hidden. We received a confirmation call the day before and earlier that morning, which I really appreciated considering we were a wreck from packing and everything else lovely that comes along with moving. They showed up on time (I think it was Taylor and I'm sorry I can't recall the other guy's name), actually early, and from then on everything was made so much easier for us. They knew exactly what order to take things and required no direction from us. We even had a dilemma with our flat screen, and they were able to fix that after my boyfriend and myself trying for about 2 hours the night prior. Once we arrived at the new place they got everything inside in record time and when they were done even offered to set up our bed and move things around if we wanted. After they left, I was actually able to relax which is when realized these guys are awesome! If you have to move, definitely call Pacific Coast Moving! More...

These guys were amazing! First of all, Dane was extremely responsive to my quote request and scheduled me easily via email, which was very convenient and easy. Damon and Craig showed up on time, took one look at all of our stuff and called for back-up. :-) In the meantime, they loaded our entire house without complaining and had a good sense of humor about our chaotic moving situation.They picked up a third guy to help unload at the other end and were done less than two hours later.I know it was a much more difficult process than any of them anticipated, and they handled the situation patiently and were proactive about getting extra help. I just feel bad that our bigger-than-expected move made them late for their next job. More...

I hired these guys based on the reviews on Yelp and I'm very glad I did.  They moved me yesterday  from a one bedroom condo in PDX out to a house in Gresham.  Bo, Damon and Dane were all great--very friendly, professional, and above all, they really busted their a*ses to get my stuff loaded on their truck (very neatly and efficiently) and everything unloaded again at the destination.  All my stuff was in perfect shape and I'm very pleased.  I would definitely use them again as well as recommend them!

I've never used a moving company before, but I'm also kind of lazy, and have grown tired of the moving process after doing it several times over the past 10 years. I've always been a bit hesitant about hiring anyone though, imagining my cheap Ikea furniture and collections of geek stuff being crushed into a billion pieces, but my Mom had recently hired Pacific Coast Moving for a small job, so I figured I'd give them a try.I had a little trouble getting ahold of them during the weekday, but was able to catch someone on Saturday and schedule something for that Sunday at 4pm. The next day went about as smoothly as I could possibly have hoped - they were on time, had everything packed into the truck in about 40 mins, over to the new place, and ready to unload in under an hour. The only snag? I won the Darwin Award for the day and forgot my keys, forcing them to wait for me to go back and get them.I've since gotten everything unpacked and have yet to find so much as a scratch or dent on anything, which really surprised me, given how fast they were able to get everything loaded and unloaded.All in all, very fast, friendly, and professional guys, who were happy to put up with waiting on me, and didn't tack any extra charges on, even though I'm preettty sure we went just over the 2 hour minimum. Definitely not the nightmare I imagined, and I'm pretty certain I'll use them again in the future. More...

My fiancé and I are weaklings in certain situations. This was one of them. Having said that....Holy crap, these guys are FREAKIN AWESOME! They were able to move our stuff (about one bedroom apartment's worth of stuff into a three bedroom one floor house twelve blocks away) in two hours. It was pretty ridiculous. They were so fast and so careful with our stuff.The offered to help with every single thing and they were super friendly. They are also very honest as well. The most important part was that they seriously made so much of my stress and anxiety go away just by simply doing what they do on a normal basis. Seriously, investing in awesome movers is worth it. Don't even ask your friends and put them through hell because these guys have the actual skills, equipment, vehicle, STRENGTH and MUSCLES (I'd so train with one of them if I could!) you need for a move. Not to say moving is "easy" for them but they sure make it look easy. Your hipster friends and their puny arms can't help you at all. You will be moving all day.Be smart. Get these awesome people!

Chris C. and I embarked on a move from hell this past week where anything that could go wrong or be a complete pain in the ass did and was---however my only reprieve of being severely annoyed with anyone in the moving business came from Dane and Taylor when they moved our stuff. We had packed two pods full and had them plopped next to our new building. The apartment was on the 6th floor and it only took them an hour and a half. They showed up early and were super patient as we waited for the truck driver to deliver the two pods and they even helped the guy with positioning them. Their rate per hour was very competitive and they took amex. All in all these two were efficient, professional, funny, and the only company we had worked with in the past few Weeks that didn't give me a headache.As for that reviewer from 12/29-yikes,I don't know what happened, but that definitely can't be the norm. As a young business owner you don't want to burn bridges like that. AND I'm not a relative/friend of theirs posting a biased review. More...

I love these guys!They helped me move twice and they were on time, extremely understanding and flexible. The first time I moved, I wasn't sure when or exactly what time the truck (ABF UPack) would arrive they were completely understanding and flexible with the situation. Granted I'm sure that's not the first time they has encountered a situation like that before. The second move I decided to use them again only this time use their truck and once again, they were on time and super nice. I also want to mention that they were professional as well. To give you an idea of this, before I used them the first time, I called around to get quotes on prices and a feel of who will be moving my crap around. Many of the places I called I left a message and they either NEVER called me back or they weren't very "professional" on the phone. Now to be completely honest, they were not the cheapest I found, but they weren't that expensive either. But lets be honest, these guys are handling your stuff and you want people you trust. I got much more than what I paid for and I will definitely use them again if needed. More...

Hired them over the weekend on a last minutes noticed.  They had other jobs prior to us so they ran behind schedule (which was fine).  The guys showed up and was quick to get the job done; includes loading fridge, washer/dryer, sofas and beds.  Unloading was easier so it took very little time to get it up the apartment.  Even offered to help install the fridge and washer/dryer.  Thanks for the help!

I was so close to hiring another local business for my move but WHEW!! SO GLAD I DIDN'T!!! Pacific Coast Movers have an easy rate to understand so you know exactly what your paying for at the end of the job. Dane was super cool over the phone and I able to book with no hassle or extra fees & crap.When the movers Jesse & Israel came, they were right on time down to the second! They went straight to work! They even complimented me on how organized I was and how easy I made it for them to load things onto the truck ;D (i take pride in my organizational skills, what can i say?) They even helped me disassemble & reassemble my bed and Tv mount which was more than I figured they needed to do. They knew that I wanted to keep the whole move to a max of 3 hours and they showed me that they were sensitive to the time & delivered to the last minute. I definitely would recommend Pacific Coast Moving company, compared to all the local movers. They have an awesome, friendly staff who are sensitive to your needs when moving. The only thing I have a negative comment on is ( & it's my own fault)  that I forgot to give them my 10% off coupon!!! when they left I was so disappointed that I forgot!!! LOL oh well!!! heyy! I'm cheap! don't hate!! More...

Angel and Israel were super efficient, helpful, and friendly movers. I chose Pacific Coast because a couple of my friends had great experiences with them for in-town moves, and I totally concur. Highly recommended.
