When it comes to moving your home residence or office, in the Portland Metropolitan area, within the state or across the country, one question, often asked, is the one that matters more than any other when it comes to choosing a moving company:

What if …?

Things happen, sometimes beyond everyone’s control.

Still, preparing by asking questions and understanding your rights will protect you, your household or office furnishings and possessions and protect your move, too.

To help we offer the following links to resources that are sure to help you rest easier and move with confidence. That’s the Rose City way.

Every move is unique and it takes moving professionals that understand your needs to get it done right and on-time, start to finish.

Whether you’re moving your family to their new home, or your business to its new home, large or small, simple and straightforward to large and complex, Rose City Moving and Storage has the experience, track record and all the tools.

It’s what we call The Rose City Difference. The idea is a faster, safer, less stressful and more environmentally friendly move.

Starting with the right moving boxes. We’ve invested thousands of dollars in the right boxes to get you started without delay, and finished faster. Consider these important differences.

 More Efficient Packing – No boxes to assemble, ready to pack now
 Easier on Employees – Moving crates are packed on their own dollies
 Saves on Move Costs – Crates are ready to roll when the movers arrive
 More Secure than Boxes – Lid flaps interlock and can be locked or zip-tied
 Sturdy and Stable – Solid plastic crates stack and can’t crush like boxes
 Environmentally Friendly – Made to be reused over and over and over again

Our green moving boxes are an indication of how Rose City has changed with changing times, but if you prefer cardboard boxes – and for items planned for lengthy storage they make sense – no problem, it’s your call!

Many customers mix and match with a combination of our green moving boxes and traditional boxes.

And when the big day arrives, Rose City is ready, with a fleet of vehicles to accommodate every sized move.

Rose City Moving boasts an impressive fleet comprised of dozens of vehicles and trailers; passenger vans to tractor-trailers and everything in between. Such a diverse fleet allows us the flexibility to put the right trucks on the job when they’re needed, again ensuring a customer’s needs are met while employing efficient, environmentally sound choices whenever possible.
