I'm a home organizer and I hired the O'Neill team to move my client's belongings from his old house to his new one and they did a wonderful job. They... were on time, professional, and they completed the job very quickly. There was no damage to any items. Highly recommend!read more

My main movers for an international move contracted with O’Neills to pack up and load everything into a shipping contain. Albert, Markus and Freddie... arrived and couldn’t have had better attitudes. They were careful with every item they packed. The main company had failed to give them a complete picture of the size of the job, but they made it work and ensured everything was packed professionally and without fuss. I was seriously impressed with these gentlemen and would highly recommend based on this experience.read more

I give this company 5 stars. The staff who packed my furniture, kitchen, glassware, and collectibles did a fabulous job. Only 1 glass was broken (I... had quite a few). They stored my things until I found my new home. The moving staff was also great. I couldn't believe how quickly the got everything into place. A side note....both the packers and the movers had been with the company a long time. That says volumes about their organization.read more

I needed some valuable China and antiques packed and loaded into a truck. The packers arrived on time. They were efficient, not rushed, and... carefully packed and loaded the truck. They did an outstanding job packing and loading these very fragile items. The items arrived safely at their destination; the packing and careful loading of the truck was critical to that. Kudos to their professional expertise. I highly recommend.read more

After reading enough reviews about horroble moves, one will inevitably become wary and expect the worst. O'Neill totally blew me away with how... professional and kind they were every step of the way. Absolutely awesome team delivered my belongings efficiently and with care up to my third story apartment (with an elevator, but still). Scheduling the delivery was super easy as well despite the delay due to the snow. Truly can't recommend them enough!read more

My mother-in-law‘s house sold in one day. Unfortunately, we were unable to find a long-distance mover with availability before her closing date. We... found one company who had a day available a month after closing, which we were lucky to get, but no availability to pick up her belongings and put them in storage. That left us in the difficult position of having to find a carrier who would be willing to pick up her furniture and hold it in storage for a month. We were very fortunate to find O’Neills. Not only were we able to snag the only day they had availability before the closing date, but the entire experience was positive. Geana and Betsy were very helpful, responding quickly to any of our questions or requests and were great at keeping us informed. The moving crew was very pleasant, careful with my mother-in-law‘s furniture and boxes and had the truck loaded in half the estimated time. All the furniture was carefully padded and we were given use of the pads at no additional cost with the only proviso that all of padding had to be returned at the time of the transfer to the second carrier. The furniture and boxes were in good condition and the transfer to our distance carrier was seamless. I highly recommend O’Neills and want to thank them for their help.read more

The guys were friendly, professional, and were in and out of my house in probably 10 minutes. The only reason I gave this company 4/5 stars is... because I was pretty disappointed to see neither of the guys wearing masks. I understand it’s a choice, however, we are in the middle of a global pandemic and you’re entering my house... of course I completely sanitized everything after they left. But come on, really? Their job is to go in and out of people’s homes. The least they could do is mask up. I’m surprised and again, disappointed that O’Neill doesn’t require them to wear them. Anyway, overall good service.read more

O’Neil delivered a mattress we ordered from Costco. Their office called and scheduled a delivery window between 8:30-10:30 and the truck was at our... home right at 8:30 on the agreed upon delivery day. The delivery men had the mattress off the truck and inside our garage within 5 minutes. They would have brought the mattress inside and set it up but with the virus issues I preferred to do it myself. It wasn’t the 100% contactless experience I would have preferred because I had to sign the delivery receipt so they could work on that aspect of the process. Perhaps a phone call or email where I could confirm the delivery without touching anything. All in all a 100% good delivery experience with just slight room for improvement.read more

Update, written 2 MAR 2020My items were delivered last week. I can say I have no problem with this moving company. They communicated with me... promptly and my items were in the best condition I have ever had with movers. I plan on moving again, and I will think of this company first is all I have to say.Written 11 JUL 2019Where do I begin? Well this is a good moving company, most of my communication was done via email. I managed to get an estimator to come out and look at my apartment. I was glad because basing the cost of a move purely on square footage is bad. After the estimator came out I kept in contact and all my questions and concerns were addressed.The day I was going to have my items packed and stored the three gentlemen showed up on time and were very diligent. Very professional and addressed my concerned. I am experienced with other movers and somethings I knew to look out for.I will update this review when I move into a new place and have them deliver my items. As for now they left a great impression.read more

We cannot say enough good things about O’Neill Transfer and Storage Co Inc. of Beaverton, Oregon – affiliated with National Van Lines. O’Neill’s... President (Bradley Boland Sr.) came to our rescue after we had been bilked by an online Moving Broker (don’t ever make that mistake!). Anyway, it was the day of our scheduled move through the online broker and the price suddenly jumped $2,000. We “fired” them, but then were in a desperate spot as we (family of 3) had our plane tickets to leave the next day. We called O’Neill and spoke with Brad Boland Sr. who immediately came out, gave us the price and made arrangements for the move on the spot. O’Neill is a very professional company with great client communication. Everything was packed and moved to Buffalo NY in perfect condition and right on time. They gave a fair price and more than made up for the terrible experience we had with the online moving broker. We would recommend O’Neill 100%!-Craig Voigt and Caitlin Littlefieldread more

I was relocated from OR to MN for work and it had to happen fast. I was not going to give up the OR apt. yet as I was not sure how it would all go. ... It was overwhelming trying to figure out which service to use and I was getting calls and emails with quotes from all over the country after I did an online search/inquiry. I liked the idea of using a local company and Bradley, the president, called and emailed and came over with some boxes to give me some advice on what to bring and not bring, etc. He was very hands on and trustworthy and everything went well. I would recommend his service to anyone.read more

Portland Moving Company

Moving for the First Time?

Once you request a moving estimate, you will be paired up with a professional moving specialist, who will be your contact throughout your move. On your moving day, your moving crew will carefully load your pre-packed items into the moving truck before transporting your belongings to your new location. After unloading the truck and placing your items with your direction, you will take inventory of your belongings to ensure that everything is in good shape and accounted for. Then, you will sign off on the completion of your move with the driver.

Portland Moving FAQ

“Only move what you need into your new home, keeping a close eye on the floorplan. Don’t take furniture you don’t need. Decluttering is key.”

- BRADLEY BOLAND Owner, O'Neill Transfer and Storage

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Professional Moving Company in Portland?

The cost of hiring a moving company can fluctuate depending on numerous factors such as distance, size of the move, and added services. For an accurate estimate, it’s essential for the mover to perform a complete home survey, evaluating the volume and nature of items to be relocated. In 2024, according to MoveBuddah, “The typical cost for hiring movers in Portland, OR is $130 per hour with a total move cost ranging from $460 to $4,270, on average.”

O’Neill Transfer Moving & Storage offers both in-home and virtual in-depth surveys in order to give you an accurate estimate with no hidden fees. We take the time to observe and evaluate all your items instead of providing a blind estimate over the phone. “Our competitive prices and the value of our service ensure you get the best possible moving experience,” assures our President, Bradley Boland.

Do Moving Companies in Portland Provide Comprehensive Estimates Detailing All Costs and Services?

Most companies provide moving quotes, but ensuring these estimates are comprehensive is vital, covering all costs and services to avoid any unexpected expenses. Some companies provide estimates over the phone; however, those cannot be accurate because they couldn’t possibly have all of the information without an in-depth survey of the home or office in person or virtually, leading you to unplanned additional charges down the road. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration clarifies, “A non-binding estimate is what your mover believes the total cost will be for the move” Be sure to get a written quote in the form of an Order of Service, which details and warrants all of the moving company’s services and responsibilities.

O’Neill takes this seriously and provides a detailed quote that encompasses every aspect of your move. We are transparent about our prices and services, enabling you to make informed decisions without any hidden surprises. “We are transparent about our prices and services, enabling you to make informed decisions without any hidden surprises,” assures our President, Bradley Boland.

Can a Portland Moving Company Move Me Both Locally and Long-Distance?

A full-service moving company typically caters to local and long-distance moves, offering tailored services to meet customer needs. This Forbes article explains that a local move “Is typically defined as a move that does not exceed a 50-mile distance. Additionally, the move must remain within state lines to be considered a local move.” Although most companies offer local and long-distance moves, certain companies only travel up to certain distances, so check with your company to verify. Confirming that your moving company has an in-state license for local moves and a USDOT license for long-distance moves is also essential.

At O’Neill Transfer Moving & Storage, we’ve been serving the greater Portland area since 1920, offering local and long-distance moving services. As an interstate agent of Wheaton World Wide Van Lines, we have access to over 400 other agents nationwide, so we will ensure your local or long-distance move is as smooth as possible. Our vast experience and meticulous planning ensure your move is seamless, regardless of the distance involved. “Our dedication to providing exceptional service, whether for local or long-distance moves, sets us apart in the industry,” emphasizes our President, Bradley Boland.

Do Portland Moving Companies Have Packing Services and Supplies, and At What Cost?

Packing is a critical part of moving, and the availability of packing services and materials can significantly ease the moving process. Many full-service moving companies offer packing and unpacking services at an additional cost, but not all companies do, which is why you should always check with your company beforehand about this truly helpful add-on service.

O’Neill not only offers packing services but also supplies high-quality packing materials. Our packing services are honestly priced to ensure affordability without compromising the safety and integrity of your items. We can pack just a few items or the whole home. Check out our Packing Services Page to learn more.

Are Portland Moving Companies Licensed with the Proper USDOT Number and State License Number, as well as Fully Insured?

Licensing and insurance are critical considerations when choosing a moving company, as they determine if the moving company is legally allowed to complete moves. For long-distance moves, moving companies must have a United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) license number. If a moving company is an interstate agent of a national van line, it can operate under the van line’s USDOT for long-distance moves. You can confirm their USDOT license by using the Federal Mover’s Database Lookup. “A USDOT number lookup will provide you with a lot of useful information about the movers you’re interested in, such as their contact information, operating status, safety rating and much more,” mentions Moving.com.

For local moves, which are moves within state lines, Oregon moving companies must have an Oregon Department of Transportation license number (ODOT) to operate legally. Their USDOT and state license numbers should be prominently displayed on their website for easy verification.

O’Neill Transfer Moving & Storage is fully licensed and insured. We’re an Interstate Agent of Wheaton World Wide Van Lines, with a USDOT license number of 70719. Our ODOT License Number is 251555, and our MC license number is 87113. Our accreditation and coverage provide assurance of our credibility and commitment to safeguarding your possessions. “Our dedication to keeping your belongings safe during the move is clear with our comprehensive licensing and insurance,” emphasizes our President, Bradley Boland.

Are the Movers from the Company Experienced and Have They Received Training?

A company’s moving crew is critical in ensuring a smooth move. This Forbes article emphasizes, “Well-trained movers know how to protect your belongings from damage, maneuver heavy items safely down a flight of stairs or through narrow doorways, and efficiently load a moving truck to make the most of the available space.”

Ensuring your company has background-checked movers with adequate training and experience is also essential. This way, you can have peace of mind knowing your belongings are in excellent and safe hands. Ask your mover or check out their About Us page.

At O’Neill, we pride ourselves on having a team of dedicated, trained, and experienced movers who handle your items with utmost care. Background checks are a part of our hiring process, ensuring you can trust our team with your valuable possessions. Rest assured; we have members of our moving crew that have been moving with us for decades, so you can be stress-free knowing we have the experience to make your move seamless. Learn more by checking out our About Us page. “Our commitment to excellence and trustworthiness is reflected in the caliber of our experienced moving team,” assures our President, Bradley Boland.

How are the Online Reviews of the Portland Moving Company?

Online reviews can provide a reliable gauge of a moving company’s performance. All moving companies should have reviews on a third-party website such as Google or Yelp, as the reviews on those sites are coming directly from customers. Many moving companies have ‘curated’ reviews on their websites, meaning they pick and choose which reviews to display without any proof that they came directly from the customer. This is why sites with reviews linked directly from Google or Yelp are always more reliable. This Consumer Reports article adds, “If you notice a cluster of very positive reviews all posted on the same day, “something fishy might be going on.”

O’Neill has received numerous glowing 5-star reviews from numerous satisfied customers over the years, evident in our A+ rating by the BBB. The reviews on our website are linked directly to our Google Reviews, which we encourage you to view here. Our commitment to service excellence has earned us Wheaton’s Agent of the Month recognition in August 2021. “The recognition and positive feedback from our customers and industry partners reflect our dedication to providing exceptional service,” emphasizes our President, Bradley Boland.

What are Portland Moving Companies’ Policies on Items Damaged or Lost During the Move?

In the moving industry, ‘insurance’ is referred to as ‘valuation’. Therefore, it’s essential to understand a moving company’s valuation policy. By law, all movers have to offer Limited Liability Coverage, in which the moving company will compensate you 60 cents per pound for each damaged or lost item.

However, not all customers are satisfied with this level of coverage, which is why many moving companies offer Full Value Protection for an extra charge. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration explains, “This is the more comprehensive, but also more expensive, option for protecting your belongings.” With the Full Value Protection plan, the moving company will repair, place, or fully reimburse you for the current market value of any items lost or damaged during the move.

At O’Neill, we provide both Limited Liability Coverage and Full Value Protection options, enabling you to choose the level of protection that best suits your needs. “Our commitment to offering flexible coverage options reflects our dedication to ensuring your peace of mind throughout the moving process,” emphasizes our President, Bradley Boland.
