Let’s move Portland!

BEFORE THE HEAVY LIFTING …
You know what moving your home or office means. Work, lots of work, thankless work; hot, sweaty, and stressful.
Then, on the other side – once you’re there – then what? Work, lots of work, thankless work; hot, sweaty, and stressful.
So what can you do?
One option – an option we endorse enthusiastically – is to call Rose City Moving and Storage. We’re moving professionals, trusted by virtue of years of performance in the Portland Metro Area and beyond. We do it everyday, right, on time, and guarantee your satisfaction; a pledge supported by an unblemished A BBB rating without a single complaint.
But if you’re an adventurous soul and considering doing it yourself, before you start with the heavy lifting, we’d still like help: Do your moving homework.
In that spirit, helpful hints; things it’s far better to find out sooner, rather than later.
Carefully consider your timing. If you don’t, a tough job only gets tougher.
Arrange for the vehicles and other equipment in advance. Do you understand all logistical issues? Is the vehicle large enough, can you drive it, and if you can, will it work on both ends?
Remember to pack early, pack wisely, with an eye on proper labeling and organization.
Determine special needs.
Do you need help with loading and unloading? If so, where’s it coming from, can you have confidence in their knowledge and reliability?
Do you have large, difficult to move items, or breakable ones, and what about family heirlooms of greater value that need an extra dose of TLC?
What about jacks, piano boards, and other tools of the trade to handle everything from beds to entertainment centers and more? Do you need help to disassemble and reassemble big items?
Your Moving Emergency Kit.
What you can’t live without, like toiletries, medicines, documents, a teddy bear one of your little ones can’t live without, and whatever you need right away. It sure beats wading through a mountain of boxes and tearing them open to find mission-critical stuff.
