Moving to Vancouver

Not to be confused with Canada’s famous city, Vancouver, WA is a mid-size city just north of Portland, OR. Not only does Vancouver have a long history dating back to 1825; it’s also one of the top places to live in America for families, with amazing schools and plenty of work opportunities.

Looking for the best movers near you in Vancouver? PDX Movers hires only the best local movers, and our commitment to excellent customer service has earned us hundreds of 5-star reviews. When you need a local moving company you can rely on, PDX Movers is here for you.

Vancouver has a flourishing local economy, but the city’s ideal location just 15 minutes from Portland means that local residents have even more opportunities for professional success. More than 81,000 people work in the city itself, where the chief industries are healthcare, manufacturing and retail trade. Nearby Portland is also a hug for tech companies, making the area perfect for professionals with many different occupations.

The median household income here is $55,593, and local incomes have been trending upward for the past several years. Housing in the municipality is reasonably priced, with a median home value of $238,300. About half the people living in the area own their homes; the rest choose to rent instead and spend about $1,294 per month on their apartment or condo.

If there’s one thing Vancouver has a ton of, it’s schools. In total, there are 197 schools in the city, ranging from preschools to public and private high schools. In addition to several highly rated public high schools, the city also has specialized learning environments like Vancouver iTech Preparatory School and the Vancouver School of Arts and Academics. The city is also home to the Washington State School for the Deaf!

Despite the Pacific Northwest’s rainy reputation, this community actually gets less rain than other popular cities in the US like Boston or Atlanta. The average temperature ranges from 35-73 degrees, creating a mild climate that appeals to families who want to avoid heavy snowfall but don’t enjoy sweltering heat. Though there isn’t too much rain, Vancouver does have plenty of clouds, so you’ll want to take advantage of the 164 sunny days per year.

Moving Services

The first question most people ask us is “Why should I hire movers?” It makes sense. Most folks think moving can be a DIY job– just grab a couple of friends and a truck, and you’re good to go!

We offer customized moving solutions to meet your needs and fit any budget, and we’ll be there with you every step of the way to make sure your move goes smoothly.
