Reliable and Reputable Portland Family Moving Company
Handy Haulers Moving Company understands that moving into a new home involves more than just purchasing a property. It is an investment in your family and their well-being. That’s why when the time comes to move to a new location, hiring a reliable and reputable Portland family movers team will alleviate your stress and provide the peace of mind you and your loved ones deserve. No matter how complex or difficult your move is, our moving specialists have you covered from start to finish.
Are you moving locally in the Portland area?
Whether it’s just across the street or across town, there is so much more to moving than packing, loading a moving truck, and taking your belongings to your new location. It’s a matter of transporting your earthly possessions and your most cherished memories as well. We realize it’s difficult to trust total strangers with these items. Thus, the Handy Haulers Portland local movers work hard to gain your trust by providing the highest quality local moving services and exceeding your expectations throughout the process.
Do you need help with a long-distance relocation?
When you hire our company to move you across the state or across the country, you can expect a team of skillfully trained professionals to handle your furniture and other belongings with the same care that they would transport their own. The Handy Haulers Moving Company crew that helps you pack your belongings and load them on the truck are the same Portland family movers that will be delivering your items to your new home. We don’t allow a change of crew members at any stage of your relocation nor do we do any outsourcing of moving teams.
How do local moves differ from long-distance relocations?
Believe it or not, most Americans will have moved at least one time by the time they’re 25 years old. Interestingly enough, the majority of them have no idea how local moves differ from long-distance relocations. Obviously, the distance is the primary difference between these two classifications of moves. If you’re moving within 50 miles in any direction, this is considered a local move. However, some companies extend that to 100 miles when referring to local moves.
That being the case, a move of over 50 to 100 miles is considered long-distance. In addition to this, moves are often classified as “intrastate”, or within the same state and “interstate”, or moves where your belongings are transported across state lines. On an interesting side note, as long as the move occurs within the same state’s borders, an intrastate move can be both local and long-distance. You may call us to get a free quote on your move.
In addition to the above, the Handy Haulers Moving Company sees the following differences where long-distance moves are concerned:
- they cost more
- they involve different logistics and preparation
- they involve different types of packing
- they take more time to complete
Probably the most significant difference is that it’s difficult to move long-distance without the help of skilled professionals like the Handy Haulers Portland family movers’ team. Whether you need assistance with packing or just moving, we offer cost effective full service moving assistance.
How much does it cost to hire professional movers?
It’s difficult to come up with an exact cost of your move unless one of our Handy Haulers Moving Company specialists does an in-home estimate. You can get a basic idea by visiting the Handy Haulers Moving Company website and click on the “Get a Quote” button in the upper right corner of the home page. Based on historical data and pricing information, hiring professional movers will cost the following:
- $300 to $1,500 for a local move (depending on the number of belongings)
- $2,500 to $5,000 for a long-distance mover (depending on the number of belongings and the distance of the move)
Obviously, it will cost significantly more if you’re moving cross-country instead of moving to an adjacent or nearby state. Additionally, if you plan on shipping one or more of your vehicles, you’ll want to factor in the transportation costs involved. Shipping a vehicle 200 to 300 miles will cost anywhere from $150 to $600 whereas cross-country shipping costs will range from $1,000 to $2,000 based on type of vehicle and shipping distance.
