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

Apartment Movers In Portland

Moving for the First Time?

Starting your apartment move? Reach out to the moving company for an estimate. They’ll come by to check out how much you’re moving. After you agree on the price, they’ll provide an Order of Service that details their tasks. If you’re in a multi-story building, it might be smart to reserve the elevator to make things smoother. And if you’ve chosen their packing services, they’ll drop by a few days earlier to pack your items.

On the actual moving day, your moving crew will hand you a Bill of Lading, which is your item receipt and delivery terms. They’ll then load your belongings onto the truck. When you get to your new place, they’ll help unload and ensure everything matches the Bill of Lading. After everything has been unloaded, you will do a quick check to make sure all your items are accounted for and in good condition before signing off on the Bill of Lading with the team leader.

What Moving and Storage Services Do Apartment Movers Offer?

Apartment movers typically offer a range of services tailored to the unique needs of apartment relocations. These services can include packing and unpacking, disassembling and reassembling furniture, and providing storage solutions. Some movers also offer specialized services for items like pianos or antiques, ensuring they are transported safely and securely.

At O’Neill, our services include local and long-distance moves, packing services, office and commercial moves, and warehouse storage. Our warehouse storage solutions are designed to ensure your belongings are kept safe and secure. We also offer specialty moves such as piano and antiques relocations, estate cleanouts, and moving gun safes.

How Do Expert Apartment Movers Manage Fragile or Precious Belongings?

Handling fragile or precious items requires expertise and special attention. During the move, expert movers use high-quality packing materials and techniques to protect delicate items like glassware, artwork, and antiques. Professional moving companies also teach their movers special handling techniques to use when handling delicate and valuable items.

At O’Neill, we prioritize the safety of your belongings. We offer packing and unpacking services, which we recommend for fragile items, and use only the best packing materials. Our experienced team is trained to handle precious belongings with the utmost care, ensuring they reach their destination in perfect condition. Whether it’s a cherished family heirloom or a valuable piece of art, we treat every item with the respect and care it deserves. Be sure to list them on the Items of Extraordinary Value Declaration.

What's the Average Duration for an Apartment Move in Portland?

The duration of an apartment move in Portland can vary based on different factors such as the size of the apartment, the distance between the old and new locations, and the volume of items. While some moves can be completed in a few hours to a full day, others can take a few days or even longer, especially if there are challenges like narrow staircases or limited elevator access.

If you are moving apartments long-distance, it is best to allow at least one day for loading, one day for unloading, and an additional day for every 500 miles traveled. However, the best way to estimate your timeline is to request a free quote from your moving company.

With O’Neill’s century-long experience in the Portland area, we have honed our processes to ensure efficiency and timeliness without compromising the safety of your items.

Do Apartment Moving Companies Provide Free Estimates?

Most reputable apartment moving companies offer free estimates to potential customers. These estimates provide a ballpark figure for the moving costs based on the information provided. However, an in-depth survey of the items you own is often necessary for a more accurate estimate.

If your moving company does not offer free quotes or estimates, that is a red flag to avoid. They might be a broker or not an actual moving company, both of which will likely upcharge you and potentially scam you.

At O’Neill, we believe in transparency and honesty. That’s why we offer free, no-obligation quotes to our customers. Whether you choose to fill out our online get quote form or give us a call at (503) 747-3630, we’re here to provide you with a detailed and accurate estimate for your move, ensuring there are no surprises on your moving day.

Where Can I Find Reviews from Past Customers on Portland Apartment Movers?

Online reviews are a valuable resource for individuals looking to hire apartment movers. Platforms like Google and Yelp offer insights into a company’s performance, customer service, and reliability.

How Will I Be Compensated for Items that are Damaged or Lost During the Relocation?

In the moving industry, the term ‘valuation’ refers to the coverage provided for items that might be damaged or lost during the move. While all movers are required by law to offer Limited Liability Coverage, many companies also offer Full Value Protection for an additional fee, ensuring customers are compensated based on the current market value of their items.

Limited Liability Coverage compensates you 60 cents per pound per item that is lost or damaged during the move. If you purchase Full Value Protection, your company will replace, repair, or refund you the fair market price of any item lost or damaged during the move. In addition, many companies offer an Items of Extraordinary Value Declaration. This valuation level is required for all items worth $100 per pound or more for the movers to be liable.

At O’Neill, we value the trust our customers place in us. We offer both Limited Liability Coverage, Full Value Protection, and Items of Extraordinary Value options, allowing our customers to choose the level of protection that best suits their needs. Our dedication to safeguarding your belongings is unwavering, and we strive to ensure every move is executed precisely and carefully.
