U-Haul Movers Help

Doing It Yourself Doesn’t Mean Going It Alone

With Oregon Trail Moving on the job, you can outsource the heaviest lifting, making your move easier, faster, and still within budget.

You’ll also find that with a little help, you’ll get the job done on schedule and within your budget.

Professional Packing Services

Packing your moving boxes is one of the most tedious and time-consuming parts of moving. However, it’s also one of the most important because how those boxes get packed can make the difference between arriving intact and showing up a broken mess. Our expert movers are also pros at packing, giving you both extra time and peace of mind, a combination that can be hard to find. You can get our help packing only certain rooms or let us give you a hand with the whole house – it’s your choice.

U-Haul U-Box, Pod and Truck Loading and Unloading Services

Once the packing is done – either by you or by the services of our team of movers – it’s time to get loading. Whether you’ve got a pod, a U-Haul truck, or a set of U-Haul U-Box storage containers, we’ll get them loaded fast and with precision. We pack strategically to make the most of the storage space available which will help reduce the number of trips you need to make while moving. If you’re moving to and unloading in the local area, our movers can go right alongside you and help you get everything unloaded at your new location.

Onsite Furniture Moving Services

One of the biggest hassles of moving is moving furniture and other large items like hot tubs, pianos, and gun safes. Our skilled movers are the perfect solution to not only moving these items to a whole new location, but also to provide service in and around an on-site location. Whether you’re moving completely, doing a remodeling job, or staging for a real estate sale, our movers will help you get everything into proper position quickly and conscientiously. Our reviews demonstrate how carefully our movers treat furniture, whether it’s moving them in and out of storage or on and off of a U-Haul truck or U-Haul U-Box storage container.

The Oregon Trail Moving Way: Movers You Can Trust

When you’re trying to find moving companies for U-Haul movers help, you’ve got lots of options. However, there are a number of reasons why Oregon Trail Moving should stand out among the other local companies you may be considering to help on your moving day.
Our Skills
We understand that your belongings have great value. That’s why we employ only the most conscientious movers to help with your biggest moving jobs.

You can trust Oregon Trail Moving to help with your heavy items, including industrial and commercial equipment, and help with moving delicate items such as grand pianos and pool tables.
Our Team
A moving company is only as good as its team. At Oregon Trail Moving, we have crew leads that have been with us for ten years or more, a record of longevity nearly unheard of in an industry where companies often experience high turnover. This shows that we aren’t just great to work with, we’re great to work for. That kind of working environment means our customers get experienced and dedicated help when it matters the most.
Our Values
The values of a moving service company matter. The values they maintain are the ones they are bringing to the job site. When you choose Oregon Trail Moving, you are getting movers that genuinely enjoy what they do and take pride in delivering top-notch service.

Our Commitment
We are committed to providing our customers with 5-star service every time, and it shows in our reviews. This is why we take the time to carefully blanket wrap and properly transport heavy and delicate items like armoires, some of which may be valuable family heirlooms, into your U-Haul truck or U-Haul U-Box storage pod. We can even help with moving these pieces down stairs without damaging the items or the structure. If it matters to you (and we know it does), it matters to us.
Our History
Oregon Trail Moving was established in 2011 by Nick Parlier, native Oregonian and hard-working entrepreneur. Nick saw the need for hybrid moving and a labor-only service model while working for several different moving companies in Oregon and the Portland area. This led to him creating a company to do just that, and all these years later Nick and his crew leads are still moving, not just in Portland, but in Hillsboro, Oregon City, and Vancouver, Washington.

100% DIY, 100% Done-for-You, and Why Hybrid Moving Makes Sense

When it comes down to it, there are three basic approaches to moving: doing it all yourself, having someone else do it all, and a combination of DIY and outsourcing – a hybrid move. Let’s go over the benefits and drawbacks of each so you know what to look for when it comes to your U-Haul moving help options.
For the individual who likes to be in charge – especially when valuable or delicate cargo is involved – doing it on your own holds a lot of appeal as you always have access to and are in control of your belongings. It’s also the least expensive – it may only cost you the U-Haul or U-Box storage rental and pizza for the friends you recruit to help out, because there are some items you simply cannot move on your own and need help from someone. However, that cost savings also comes with a price. You either pay with your time and sweat (and potential injuries), or the risk of damaging your property without any safety net. Also, unless you’re a pro at packing storage containers your approach to loading your U-Haul truck may not be the most efficient, meaning you’ll have to make multiple trips. The U-Haul truck rental fees and gas required for those extra trips will add up fast.
On the opposite side of DIY U-Haul moving, there are moving service companies that are more than just help. They will handle every single aspect of your move for you, from packing the moving boxes to loading the truck to driving to your destination and unloading. While this comprehensive service is a huge time-saver and relieves you of all the manual labor, you’ll find that this type of help is often cost prohibitive, with expenses easily climbing into the tens of thousands of dollars, depending on how far and how much you need to move. Also, your belongings are completely out of your control for potentially days or weeks at a time. In many cases you may arrive at your new home and end up sleeping on the floor because your furniture has not yet arrived. Or worse, your home isn’t yet ready and you then have to pay storage fees until your truck can be unloaded. Situations like that make moving even harder than it needs to be. If you choose full service moving services, be sure to carefully check the companies’ reviews before hiring.
Right in the middle, you’ll find hybrid moving. By combining your own efforts with those of a moving company providing back-saving labor, you can stay in charge, in control, and save both time and money. Oregon Trail Moving is a company providing this sweet spot, as we can pack your boxes (or not – it’s up to you), carefully and strategically load your U-Haul to maximize truck storage, and unload your U-Haul truck or U-Haul U-Box storage container once it’s at your new destination. By outsourcing the heavy lifting, you can take advantage of the time savings, reduce your personal injury risk, and move with confidence knowing your items are protected. Much less expensive than all-inclusive moving, a hybrid move lets you offload the most strenuous and tedious tasks and streamline your move so you can focus on the overall bigger picture of getting settled in your new home or office. You’ll also have time to throw a housewarming party and invite your friends over to celebrate instead of help you load your U-Haul.
