Portland >Storage > Willamette Valley Moving
I felt I got nickel and dimed.
Apparently the clock started a half hour before the scheduled time and ended a half hour after the guys finished, so that right there added an hour to the bill; it would have been nice to have been told this during scheduling. I also wasn't told I would have to pay for the plastic wrap which was itemized on the bill. There were smaller items that were left in some rooms and in the garage that either could have easily been placed in the truck or left behind for us to transport (which I told the guys), but they chose to spend time packing those items into boxes, which I wasn't informed beforehand that I would have to pay for if I kept them, so then the time had to be taken to unpack those boxes upon delivery so I wouldn't be charged $10/each for them; but that took up more time. The total amount of time ended up being TWICE what I was expecting based on the length of time it took this company to move some friends.
The two man crew did hustle most of the time and were very friendly. They appeared to take pride in their work and tried their hardest to do it right. Only minor damage to a trim piece at the old house and some scuffed up freshly painted door trim on the new house. When going to the new house, they apparently put in the wrong address into their navigation, so what should have been a 5 minute drive ended up being well over 30 minutes. Most items were moved without damage, however; quite a few boxes, storage containers, and a filing cabinet full of papers were turned upside down; even though there is no monetary damage, it's just a time consuming mess to take care of. I also noticed a lack of attention given to placing heavy items under lighter ones; I found quite a few very heavy boxes/containers on top of much lighter ones. Luckily the boxes that were crushed only had clothes in them so nothing was damaged that I have noticed.
Used them a week ago - excellent service...professional, prompt, fast and efficient. Not a scratch on anything. Would definitely use them again. Very hardworking.
Great experience. They were prompt, efficient and professional. Charged me for exactly the time it took (and they moved fast!). They made an inherently stressful experience go as smoothly as possible. I highly recommend them!
Excellent Service & Professional. I had an appointment at 9 am and they showed at 9:10 pretty good considering they came from Portland to Salem. Once they arrived I explained my expectations as we walked through the duplex. They began work immediately each taking a room and after 4 hours they had the two bedroom duplex all boxed up and loaded on their truck. The unloading was just as fast and professional as the loading. They don't reassemble electronics IE: computers to peripherals and TV's with DVDs cable boxes. Other than that they reassembled all furniture that was disassembled for the move. I would definitely recommend these professionals, it was a pleasure to watch people who know what they are doing work. The price was under what I had guessed it to be. They gave me a price per man hired, I used three. I had to move immediately and did not get a quote. I don't recommend doing that but. If I move again I will definitely use these professionals.
Portland's Most Efficient Movers. I have had to move a lot over the years and these guys are the best in town. I got really quick service, I have never seen movers run to get the work done. These guys were very professional, polite and were very careful with my furnishing. They are well worth their price. I highly recommend using the company for all your moving needs.
Worth Every Penny. They were 1/2 an hour late, but made up for it with the quality of their work. We were initially scheduled for only 2 people, but I called back to request a 3rd to get it done faster. The 3rd person was worth it. The only break they took was 5 minute in their truck to eat some pizza we bought for them. Other than that, they went from 8:30AM - 6PM non-stop. Every piece of furniture was carefully wrapped before being loaded on the truck and carefully unloaded. We had a terrible 90 degree bends in our house forcing them to go over our railing. They did this with care. I would hire them again.
About to Hire Them Again.
This review is a long time coming. We moved to our apartment about two years ago and I was 9 months pregnant at the time so we made the choice to use movers. We were really nervous because we've heard horror stories about movers from friends. However, we hit the jackpot! Mike and Earl were our movers and they packed everything up and got it unloaded in two hours flat! My husband and I were so dumbfounded by how awesome these movers are! Just like other reviewers said, they really booked it and never let up the pace. Not only that, but they were friendly, they actually showed up a few minutes early and introduced themselves. Great customer service!
Now, we're about to move again, to our new house....and yes, we're going to hire Willamette Valley Moving. I recommend them to everyone I know that is moving and definitely recommend them if you're considering using movers. It's some of the best money we ever spent and we'll never go back to moving our own stuff again.
Efficient, friendly, awesome..
I recently moved from NW to SE in Portland. I hired Willamette Valley Movers to do the big stuff. They quoted me at 3 to 4 hours, but they actually took less than 2. Dave and Earl arrived right on time, introduced themselves, and got right to work. I could not believe how fast and efficient they were.
For me, because I was moving from a one bedroom to another one bedroom just across town, the hourly rate was the way to go. They did not move slowly at all or take breaks.
Moving all of that stuff with the help of friends would have taken all day and would have been a pain. Hiring Willamette Valley Movers was well worth the money.
Excellent Service. We had two guys from Willamette Valley Moving company, Charles and Dustin, who helped us move last January. I just want to say that they were awesome! My husband was hesitant at first to hire movers, but was very pleasantly surprised at how good it turned out. Charles and Dustin were excellent. They were very efficient, friendly and professional. They even arrived early. Very impressive service. I would totally recommend this company to my friends and family.
Excellent experience. We had two guys form WVM help us move last month from our house in Hillsboro. It was the best experience!! The two guys were prompt and courteous and were cognizant of the fact that we were paying them by the hour and were running to get the job done in a timely manner. In all we moved from a three bedroom house and it took them 5 hours to move us. None of our furniture was damaged and they were careful to lay down protection for our carpets and floors. (We own some very big heavy pieces) It was a pleasure to do business with them. They were worth every penny! Two thumbs up!!
