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 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 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 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 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 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 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. ...

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.

Senior Movers

Moving for the First Time?

When looking for a senior moving company, the first thing to do is request a moving quote from at least three companies. Once you request a moving quote, the moving company will pair you with a moving specialist, who will serve as your primary person of contact. Before the move, you’ll receive an Order of Service detailing the agreed-upon services and the projected cost. On your moving day, the movers will write down each item and its current condition on the Bill of Lading as it is loaded onto the truck. This vital document serves as proof of your items and an agreement for shipment. As your belongings are delivered at the new location, they are cross-checked with this document to confirm everything is in place. If you would rather not pack your items yourself, moving companies particularly provide packing services at an additional cost. If selected, a packing crew will come a few days before the move to handle the packing. After everything is unloaded and placed to your liking, you will ensure all your items are in good condition before signing off on the Bill of Lading with the team leader.

What Services Can My Senior Movers Provide?

Senior moving companies cater to the unique needs of older adults, offering services that address the challenges of relocating later in life. These can range from packing and unpacking, downsizing, and setting up in the new residence to assistance with estate cleanouts, decluttering, and providing warehouse storage for a smooth transition.

What Is the Cost of Hiring Professional Senior Movers in Portland?

In Portland, the cost of professional senior movers is influenced by multiple factors, including the distance traveled, the amount and weight of items, and any specialized services that might be needed. Based on our research, the average cost of a senior move in Portland ranges from $1,000 to $3,100. However, depending on your individual needs, the price of your move could be below or above that range.

Typically, companies provide a customized quote after conducting an in-depth household survey to determine the move’s specifics. We recommend getting at least three moving quotes to find the company that best fits your needs.

How Do Moving Companies Protect Fragile or Valuable Items?

Professional moving companies often go to great lengths to ensure the safety of fragile and valuable items. They employ high-quality packing materials, custom crating, and specialized techniques to safeguard belongings during transportation.

At O’Neill Transfer and Storage, the safety of your possessions is our priority. We trained our experienced team in handling valuable items, and we always use best-in-class packing materials and techniques. Recognizing the unique needs of our customers, we offer packing services and specialty moving services.

A few of the specialty services include antiques and piano moving, which are specifically designed to protect your fragile items. We even offer free disassembly and reassembly of furniture and larger items to best protect your items.

What Does the Planning and Execution Process Look Like in a Senior Move?

Moving requires thorough planning and attention to detail, especially for older adults. The process begins with a detailed consultation with your dedicated moving specialist to outline the move’s intricacies. The planning stage encompasses everything from inventory management to addressing special requirements to scheduling.

If you decide to use packing services, your professional packing team will come a few days before the actual moving day and pack your items carefully. On your moving day, the moving team loads your belongings and transports them to the new location. After arrival, your moving team will unload your items, ensuring everything finds its rightful place in the new environment.

At O’Neill Transfer and Storage, we offer free quotes that we can deliver within 24 hours. We also offer a flexible schedule, including weekend days, so we can work within the rules of your new facility or apartment if needed.

Are Senior Moving Crews Specially Trained to Move Older Adults with Special Accommodations?

Reputable moving companies provide specialized training to their senior moving crews. This training encompasses understanding the emotional aspects seniors might experience during a move, the logistics, and how to accommodate any special requests or needs, such as medical equipment. However, not all moving companies are trained and equipped to provide moves tailored to the needs of older adults. For a seamless moving process, select a moving company that specifically offers ‘senior moving’ as a service.

At O’Neill Transfer and Storage, our commitment is to provide a seamless and compassionate moving experience. Our crew receives tailored training to cater to the needs and challenges faced by older adults when moving. Our background check and experienced team ensures that every move, whether it includes special accommodations or specific medical equipment, is conducted with utmost care and understanding.

How Long Do Senior Moves Usually Take?

The time frame for senior moves can differ based on various factors, such as the size of the residence, the relocation distance, and specific individual needs. Some moves can be wrapped up within a day if they are close, while others may take several days to over a week, particularly if they involve extensive packing or require a further travel distance. The best way to estimate a time frame for a long-distance move is to allow one day for loading, one day for unloading, and an additional day for every 500 miles traveled.

With O’Neill Transfer and Storage, while efficiency remains at the forefront, we never compromise on the quality of service. This allows us to provide seamless transitions to older adults with little to no downtime. Every move is thoroughly planned, striking a balance between swiftness and assurance that every detail is attended to. As an interstate agent of Wheaton World Wide Van Lines, we work with our network of over 400 agents nationwide to make your long-distance move seamless.

What Precautions Would My Senior Movers Follow to Prevent Infectious Diseases?

Moving companies today prioritize health and safety more than ever. This includes adhering to rigorous sanitization protocols, using protective equipment, and ensuring crew members’ health. If you have any health concerns, please get in touch with your moving specialist for additional accommodations.

At O’Neill Transfer and Storage, the well-being of our team and customers is our first priority. We adhere to health guidelines, proactively adopting measures that prioritize hygiene and safety, especially considering the health concerns older adults can face. We are happy to work with you on any health concerns you have to provide reasonable accommodations.

How Can I Verify that My Senior Movers Are Licensed and Insured?

Ensuring your senior movers have the proper licensing and insurance is the foundation of a safe and seamless move. To affirm a moving company’s credibility, it’s essential to check its licenses, which should be listed on its website. Federal and state law requires a license from the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) for local moves in Oregon. For relocations across state boundaries, a company must possess a United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) license.

To verify a mover’s authenticity and licensing, check their USDOT license number using the Federal Mover’s Database. You can verify your moving company’s ODOT license by searching Oregon’s Household Goods Moving page. For more information about Oregon’s Licensing, check out our recent blog on the ODOT Licensing Crackdown.

O’Neill Transfer and Storage is transparent about its credentials. With an ODOT License Number of 251555, MC license number of 87113, and a USDOT license number of 70719, our dedication to upholding industry standards and delivering top-tier services is evident and easily verifiable. Furthermore, as an Interstate Agent of Wheaton World Wide Van Lines and a Pro-Mover certification from the American Trucking Association Moving & Storage Conference, our reputation stands strong and validated in the moving industry.

What Should I Value When Looking Through My Senior Mover's Customer Reviews?

Customer reviews often offer insights into a company’s professionalism, punctuality, handling of belongings, communication quality, and overall satisfaction levels. It’s beneficial to discern any patterns or recurring issues that might emerge from multiple reviews.

It is important to look at the quality of the written responses, how recent the Google Customer Reviews are, and the total number of customer reviews. In addition, it is important to ensure these reviews come from a third-party site, such as Google or Yelp. This way you can validate that the reviews are coming directly from the customer.

At O’Neill Transfer and Storage, customer satisfaction is our top priority. Our consistent track record of positive feedback reflects our century-long commitment to excellence and understanding, ensuring every senior move is conducted with genuine care and expertise. We invite everyone to explore our Google Customer Reviews.
