            Portland moving costs

            The total cost for moving services depends on several factors, including distance, the amount of belongings you’re moving and the service you require.

            Local movers typically charge by the hour. It costs an average of $189 an hour to hire four movers and a truck. It takes around seven hours to move a three-bedroom home with roughly 1,200 cubic feet of belongings, which brings the total cost to $1,300 to move within Portland, Oregon.

            Long-distance moves are more expensive — the average cost to move the same amount from Portland to Seattle is around $2,300.

            If you’re hiring labor-only services, you don’t need to consider the costs of additional services, a truck or fuel. Portland residents pay anywhere from $30 to $50 an hour per mover for help loading items into their vehicle or rental truck. This is ideal for people on a tight budget who are comfortable driving their belongings.

            Portland moving laws and regulations

            The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) Motor Carrier Division has multiple regulations for moving companies, including:

            • All movers in Portland must publish their moving tariffs with the department for approval. This helps prevent customers from being charged frivolous costs or hidden fees.
            • All moving estimates in Oregon are nonbinding and must be in writing. If a move is going to exceed 10% of the original quote, then an addendum must be added to the previous estimate and initialed by the customer.
            • All moving trucks must meet ODOT regulations, and all bills of lading must get approval from ODOT. This information includes the hourly/weight rate, declaration of insurance protection, start/stop times and a mandatory receipt.
            • Each mover must give the customer a bulletin on general information for moving household goods in Oregon.

            All employees of Portland moving companies must have criminal background checks and cannot be employed in the industry within three years of a felony conviction. Moving companies in Portland must carry cargo, bailees or inland marine insurance.

            Look for the moving company’s ODOT number to ensure they comply with these regulations.
