Portland, Oregon wasn’t always cool. You’ll have to ask your new friends and neighbors how it happened, but somewhere along the way, Portland became a center of West Coast culture. It shuns big box stores and embraces all things wonderfully weird. It’s a city of art, music, and incredible food, that’s surrounded by nature at its most stunning. You’ll have to put up with the rain and (if you aren’t biking everywhere) the traffic. But, Portland’s against-the-grain spirit is infectious and you’ll soon find yourself living your best Portlander life!

I’m not even from Boston, I’m from Weymouth! But, good luck finding a moving company with experience going to Oregon there, right? I called up Cratos Moving half expecting to get blown off, but they were happy to come out my way. I didn’t lift a finger on moving day. Their guys took care of everything. I flew to Portland the next day and they showed up right on time a week later. It was the best worth a shot call I ever made.
I’ve used several moving companies in Boston over the years, and my best experience was with Cratos, hands down. They were professional, disassembled and reassembled my furniture beautifully, and never left me waiting around for them to show up. They were punctual. That’s a weird compliment, but what can I say? It impressed me. My advice, tell them what you’re looking for. If you’re upfront, you’ll like the job they do.
My family and I were planning to move from Boston to Portland without help. We were dreaming about a great American road trip! Then, we started looking into the logistics and realized we’d be crazy to try. Getting to Portland with all the stops we wanted to make was going to be hard enough in a car, so we hired Cratos. We couldn’t believe it when they told us it would only take a week! They took care of everything. We had to shorten the road trip, but totally worth it!
How much will it cost to move to Portland from Boston?
$2500, maybe a little more. Our long-distance moving rates are based on a straightforward formula: distance + the cubic footage of your things. We purposely don’t leave any room for hidden fees or upsell nonsense. It costs what it costs.
Distance: This includes the miles covered moving from Boston to Portland, gas & tolls, and the experience of a moving team that has made the move before - distance has a lot of value.
Cubic Footage: Nothing will drive your cost up like an overstuffed truck. Portland is a fresh start, and you’re going to want to add some local touches. Make room by leaving what you don’t need in Boston. It’ll help you save.
Can I pay you to box up my belongings?
We do have packing services available. It’s an additional charge, but one that could save you money in the long run. Our professional moving teams have helped Bostonians relocate just about everywhere. Who better to ask about what should go and what should stay?
Do you need to scout my location first? My apartment building might be difficult.
No. Our professional moving teams have seen worse than your apartment. They’ll figure out a way to work around the angles on moving day. That said, go ahead and let us know about any concerns you may have during the initial consultation so we can prep the team.
Can I leave stuff in cabinets and drawers if I tape them shut?
That sounds easier, but it actually causes problems; extra weight, things shifting during the move. Empty everything out, and label the boxes clearly so our moving team can match them with the correct piece of furniture.
If I call (or drop by) for a consultation will you charge me?
Not a chance. The consultation is where we put everything on the table. We ask questions, layout our plan/services, and make sure you feel 100% comfortable with the process. Without a consultation, we can’t do our job right. You shouldn’t have to pay for that.
