We recently had a very rushed complete move out of our home when the sale closed very quickly. O'Neill Transfer and Storage stepped in, and in one... day, had the entire house packed up and moved over 100 miles away into a storage unit at our new location! They were very careful with our things, and packed and padded each box carefully. The crew was extremely courteous and polite, and were always willing to work around us as we hustled to get moved out by the 5 pm deadline. They drove the whole truck load to the coast and neatly stacked everything in our storage unit for us. Each box was labeled with the room that the items came out of, so now all we have to do is look through the boxes to find the items we need.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

How Can I Find the Most Reliable Local Movers in Portland?

Finding the most reliable local moving company in Portland, Oregon, to meet your needs can be challenging. This Forbes article explains, “Ideally, you want to work with a trustworthy local moving company that’s well-known in the area.” Here are a few questions to consider when making this decision:

  • Is the moving company independently and locally owned, or are they part of a chain moving company?
  • Do they have the proper licenses and insurance, and are those licenses listed prominently on their website?
  • Do they have any Google Reviews? If so, what do their Google Reviews look like? Is their overall rating high? How recent is their latest review? How many reviews do they have in total?
  • Does the moving company have any accreditations or awards? Are those awards listed on their website?
  • Is the moving company an Interstate Agent of a Van Line? Is the Van Line prominently listed on their website?

With these points to look for, you can easily separate which moving companies are the most reliable in your area. We recommend getting a minimum of three free estimates for your local move to get the best price for your needs. Keeping these questions in mind, it is clear that O’Neill Transfer is the best choice for a qualified, reliable mover in Portland.

Recognized as Wheaton’s Agent of the Month in August 2021, O’Neill Transfer and Storage continues to exceed expectations in the industry. Our dedication to customer satisfaction, professionalism, and community involvement sets us apart as the most reliable movers in Portland.

How Much Do Local Moving Services in Portland Cost?

Local moving prices drastically vary on a case-to-case basis as prices are based on the specific services you require for your move as well as the size of your home. As of Apr 1, 2024, according to MoveBuddha, “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.” Some moving companies will get you a moving estimate extremely fast, sometimes even over the phone.

However, these estimates are subject to change as they don’t have all the details needed for an accurate estimate. This is why it is essential to look for a moving company that surveys all your belongings to create an accurate estimate that reflects precisely what you need with no surprises.

When you contact O’Neill Transfer & Storage, you will have two options to get your custom estimate on your price. You can coordinate with us to schedule an in-person survey in your home, or we can do a video chat on your phone or computer. This way, we can provide an accurate estimate without hidden fees within 24 hours of your request. “Offering both in-person and virtual options allows us to provide a free estimate quickly and efficiently,” says our President, Bradley Boland.

How Quickly Can Local Movers in Portland Pack and Transport My Belongings?

The speed of the move depends on a variety of factors, including the size of your home, the distance you are moving, and what services you require for your move. Move.org explains, “Every move looks a little different because of variables such as distance, number and type of belongings, and moving service you choose. Even small variables like the weather on moving day can affect the time it takes to move.”

At O’Neill Transfer & Storage, we aim to provide efficient, professional local moving services, and we can often deliver an estimate within 24 hours. In terms of the actual moving, we pride ourselves on moving furniture and other items quickly and efficiently while still paying attention to detail.

In addition, we offer flexible scheduling for your move, including Saturday availability to accommodate your schedule. For information on our last-minute and emergency moving services, check out our emergency movers page. “We understand that flexibility is important to our customers, which is why we offer various scheduling options to fit your needs,” says our President, Bradley Boland.

Are Local Moving Companies in Portland Licensed and Insured?

When moving in the state of Oregon, it is important that your mover has the required ODOT license to legally operate as a moving company in the state of Oregon.

In addition, the federal government requires moving companies to have certain licenses and insurance in order to legally operate. Most moving companies have a USDOT (United States Department of Transportation) and showcase it in the header or footer of their website. If a moving company is part of a van line, such as Wheaton World Wide Van Lines, then they can operate under the van line’s USDOT number. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration states, “Companies that operate commercial vehicles transporting passengers or hauling cargo in interstate commerce must be registered with the FMCSA and must have a USDOT Number.”

As an agent of Wheaton World Wide Van Lines, O’Neill Transfer & Storage is fully licensed and insured. For local moves, look for the State License number for your potential movers; O’Neill’s State License Number is ODOT 251555. We also operate under Wheaton Van Lines’ USDOT #70719, our own USDOT #103317, and our Motor Carrier (MC) license number 87113.

Any reliable and trustworthy moving company will prominently display all their licenses at the bottom of their site. Our Local for Hire Permit license number is #3633. At O’Neill Transfer & Storage, we value your safety and the safety of your belongings, which is why we have general liability insurance and worker’s compensation insurance to cover our professional moving crew. “You mover must be licensed and insured for your protection,” says our President, Bradley Boland.

Do Local Moving Companies Have Customer Reviews and Ratings?

Most moving companies have reviews listed on their website in some shape or form, but it is important to note the difference between curated and non-curated reviews. If Google or Yelp reviews are not linked directly to the company’s website, the moving company might pick and choose the reviews it posts on its website without any proof that said reviews are coming directly from the customer. To spot fake reviews, this Forbes article recommends, “Check for how recent reviews are, check for bursts of reviews clustered close together and see if the reviewer has posted other reviews.”

With linked Google Reviews or reviews from Yelp or another website, there is no filtering or editing of what the prior customer says about the company. At O’Neill Transfer & Storage, we put our linked Google Reviews on our site to be as transparent as possible with you so that you can choose the best moving company for you.

We have many customer reviews, as all reliable moving companies do. We take pride in providing top-quality customer service in Portland, which is why we have nearly 100 positive online reviews. With an overall rating of 4.5/5 stars, we invite you to read the many testimonials of our satisfied customers by viewing our Google Reviews. “Our customers’ feedback is invaluable to us, and we’re grateful for their trust and support,” says our President, Bradley Boland.

Do Portland Local Movers Offer Any Guarantees or Warranties?

When considering local movers in Portland, it’s essential to inquire about any guarantees or warranties they may offer, particularly concerning pickup and delivery dates. While estimates of moving costs are just that—estimates—and can vary, having a guaranteed pickup and delivery date can provide significant peace of mind. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration tells us, “Before loading your household goods, and upon mutual agreement between you and your mover, your mover may amend an estimate of charges. Your mover may not amend the estimate after loading the shipment.” If a moving company does not offer such guarantees, it could be a red flag. Ensuring that there are clear and reliable guarantees on these critical aspects can help make your moving experience smoother and more predictable.

In O’Neill Moving’s no-obligation moving estimates, we guarantee you will only pay for your specific needs. We can give you an accurate moving quote by working with you on an in-depth estimate. At O’Neill Transfer, we believe in transparent pricing, meaning you won’t be stuck with hidden fees or other unpleasant surprises when you choose to move with us. “We prioritize transparency and fairness in all our pricing policies and put it in writing,” emphasizes our President, Bradley Boland.

What are Moving Companies’ Policies in Case of Damaged or Lost Items During the Move?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration states, “Your mover is responsible for the value of the goods you asked them to transport.” Legally, moving companies have to offer Limited Valuation Coverage, which covers 60 cents per pound. This coverage plan doesn’t cost you anything as a customer; however, this limited protection does not satisfy all customers. To solve this, most moving companies offer Full Value Protection Coverage, where the moving company will replace, repair, or fully refund you for any lost or damaged items based on their actual value.

We prioritize protecting your belongings at all costs, but we also understand that sometimes things go wrong. This is why we offer high-quality Moving Valuation options at O’Neill Transfer, so you will be covered in case something does go wrong.

To recap, we provide two moving valuation options: Limited Valuation Coverage and Full Value Protection Coverage. Both these plans ensure you are covered in the rare case of lost or damaged items.

Your satisfaction with your moving experience is our top priority. If you need to file a valuation claim with us after your move, don’t hesitate to get in touch with your Dedicated Moving Specialist. “We work with you to get the right coverage” assures our President, Bradley Boland.

Can Local Movers in Portland Accommodate My Specific Moving Schedule?

Most moving companies are happy to work around your schedule. However, many companies’ calendars do fill up quickly, especially in the summer, which is why it is important to book your moving date as soon as possible. Move.org agrees, stating, “If you’re using a professional moving service, you’ll want to book your moving date with them as soon as you know it. Finding time on a company’s schedule can be difficult, depending on the season.” It’s best to call your moving company at least two weeks prior to your move to make necessary plans.

We offer flexible scheduling at O’Neill Transfer, including weekend moving to meet your timing needs. We recommend reaching out in advance to get your move scheduled so you can get your preferred moving date. The sooner you reach out, the more likely we will have our experienced movers available during the date and time you want to move. “We’ll work with you if we can’t meet your date or close to it,” says our President, Bradley Boland.
