    Yes, our team is fully equipped and trained to move security safes up and down stairs. We use specialized equipment and techniques to ensure the safe handling of heavy items on stairways. However, for the safety of our team and to protect your property, there are some limitations based on the weight and dimensions of the safe, as well as the layout of the stairway. We encourage you to contact us with details about your safe and the moving environment, so we can provide a specific assessment and prepare accordingly.

  • What types of insurance coverage do Oregon moving companies offer?
    Oregon moving companies typically offer two types of insurance: Released Value Protection, which is the most economical and provides minimal protection at no additional cost, and Full Value Protection, which offers more comprehensive coverage for your belongings at an additional cost. Consumers are also free to purchase third-party insurance if they want extra protection.
  • Can a moving company in Oregon guarantee pick-up and delivery dates?
    Oregon movers can offer guaranteed pick-up and delivery dates, but it's important to have these dates written into your contract. If the mover fails to meet these dates, you may be entitled to compensation depending on the terms of your contract.
  • Are there additional fees I should be aware of when hiring a moving company in Oregon?
    Additional fees in Oregon can include charges for long carry (if movers have to carry items over a certain distance from their truck to the home), stairs fees, and shuttle service fees if a smaller vehicle is needed to transport your goods from a larger truck to your home. Always ask for a detailed explanation of all potential fees beyond the initial estimate.
  • What is the process for handling disputes and claims with moving companies in Oregon?
    If a dispute arises, first attempt to resolve it directly with the moving company. If that fails, you can file a complaint with the Oregon Department of Transportation using the Household Goods Complaint Form for intrastate moves, or with the FMCSA for interstate moves. You might also consider mediation or small claims court for resolution.
  • What is the difference between a binding and a non-binding estimate from a moving company in Oregon?
    In Oregon, a binding estimate guarantees the total cost of the move based on the quantities and services outlined before the move. A non-binding estimate, while providing an initial cost projection, can change based on the actual weight and services required on moving day. Oregon regulations require that any change in the estimate be justified by changes in the scope of the service.
  • How can I verify the reliability of a moving company in Oregon?
    Check if the company is registered with the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) for intrastate moves or with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) for interstate moves. Also, review their ratings and customer feedback on platforms like Google and Yelp.
  • Is self-packing a cost-saving option when moving in Oregon?
    Self-packing can reduce your moving costs in Oregon as you are only charged for transportation and not for packing labor. However, be aware that any damage resulting from improper packing may not be covered under the mover's insurance policy.
