Hiring Portland Moving Help & Moving Labor

Hiring professional Portland moving help is the best option if you’ve chosen to rent a truck or moving container, and other types of moving, and only want loading, unloading, and even unpacking help. Instead of attempting to do it all yourself, work with Portland moving labor professionals for the best outcome.

Labor-only moving services allow you to avoid all the heavy lifting, muscle-aching, and back-breaking work. You can choose how much or how little assistance you need from the highly-trained and expert team of movers.

What do Portland labor-only movers do? You can expect the same services as the full-service moving company without the truck. From the access to equipment to the physical aspects of the move, you can sit back and relax knowing that these experts have it under control. Your relocation helpers will arrive on time and with the necessary supplies, tools, and property protective gear to help you assemble and disassemble furniture, pack and unpack, and load everything into your rented container truck.

Reasons for Hiring Moving Help in Portland

There are numerous reasons people hire a mover for Portland moving assistance:


Packing is one of the most difficult parts of relocating– among other things, there’s a lot of physical work involved. Some people hire professionals to help pack because it’s an excellent way to save you energy and time that should be used elsewhere. Besides, you’ll be needing the right tools and supplies to pack anyway which is exactly what the moving team can provide. When the packing is complete, you can decide if you’d like to complete the relocation on your own or use more moving labor services.

Loading/Unloading Moving Containers

After your moving container arrives at your residence, you can use it as a spot to move everything during the relocation process. Whether you have Pack Rat, Pods, SmartBox, U-Pack containers, or Reloc Cubes, our Portland moving helpers will safely load your items inside the same as they would in a rental truck. If you request, your moving helpers can unload the container when at your new destination as well.


Throughout the process of relocating, chances are you need somewhere to store your excess items. Until you decide what to do with the extra belongings, a self-storage unit can be a great place to keep everything. Even if you don’t think you need it, you never know when an unexpected situation will appear such as your home closing being delayed. Until you’re ready to retrieve your belongings, PDX Movers or another local storage unit and Portland moving helpers will easily help you store your possessions.

Truck Rental Loading/Unloading

One of the most common reasons to hire professional laborers in the Portland area is for Truck rental, loading, and unloading. You can hire Portland movers and furniture moving helpers to load and unload everything into your truck rental company like U-Haul, Penske, Enterprise, or Budget.

Freight Trailer Loading – Freight Moving Companies

When the relocation is more demanding, services of massive freight companies like Old Dominion Household Services or ABF U-Pack might be necessary to someone. You can expect professional moving helpers that will have your trailer packed and unloaded the same as your storage container or rental truck. Experts know exactly how to pack everything onto your assigned freight trailer in a way that minimizes your footprint, transfers your items on board, and gets everything to the new location with zero damage.

Remodel a Home

There’s no need to deal with an entire remodeling process on your own! Remodeling takes a lot of time– and that’s not to mention the time spent removing and lifting everything out of the way beforehand. When you hire Portland laborers, they’ll assist with moving appliances out of the household so that you can reduce stress, avoid muscle aches, and focus your time on the actual remodeling.
