How to Choose the Best Local Mover in McMinnville

Consider each company's licensing, services, cost, and customer reviews before picking.

Determine Your Budget

Based on our findings, the average cost of a local mover in McMinnville is $65 per hour. The overall cost amounts to $4,249 for a two-bedroom move. Factors that contribute to your actual cost include any additional tasks you need done, your home size, move distance, and the season.

You should obtain quotes from a minimum of three movers in your area. Request written estimates that detail the total cost, including the hourly rate or flat fee. Comparing the estimate provided by your to the final cost after the move helps ensure fair pricing is maintained.

Read Customer Reviews

Good customer feedback is necessary for all moving companies. Reading customer reviews on Trustpilot, Google Reviews, Yelp, social media, and the Better Business Bureau will show you which movers have positive customer experiences. We recommend thoroughly researching customer reviews before choosing a moving company.

Ensure Proper Licensing

Moving companies in McMinnville must follow different licensing requirements depending on their service area. If you are only moving intrastate, you'll need to select a mover licensed by the Oregon Department of Transportation. By law, their team must also provide you with a Moving Household Goods in Oregon General Information Bulletin.

If you're moving interstate, the regulations are different. Choose a company licensed with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). It should also carry active United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) and Motor Carrier (MC) numbers, which you can use on the FMCSA’s mover registration search tool to check a mover’s registration status and complaint history.

Services

Assess whether your chosen mover provides the specific services you need during the quote process. Conduct an inventory of your belongings when requesting quotes and document any additional services that might be necessary to ensure accurate pricing. Moreover, notify your moving company representative about any extra services you may need to evaluate the company's ability to offer suitable service.

Types of Moving Services

For basic moves, full-service movers often include the following services in the base price:

  • Basic wrapping materials for furniture protection
  • Loading and unloading
  • Released liability coverage for loss or damage

When seeking a quote from your moving company, discuss any special services you require. Services that can contribute to higher pricing include:

  • Crating for art or antiques
  • Extra flights of stairs
  • Long carries
  • Packing
  • Piano moving
  • Storage
  • Unpacking
  • Vehicle shipping

Tips To Consider When Moving in McMinnville, OR

Here are some additional tips to consider for your McMinnville move.

Schedule an Early Move

McMinnville gets hectic during rush hour. Maneuvering through it can be more difficult in a moving truck compared to a standard personal-use car. Movers caught in traffic may lead to delays and a higher cost since local movers charge by the hour. We suggest planning before morning rush hour, which guarantees the movers avoid the traffic and complete the move before evening.

Avoid Busy Season

The busiest time for movers—between May and September—coincides with McMinnville's hot weather. This can adversely affect your move if you start your search too late and can't find an available moving company. You should be able to book your preferred moving company by reaching out to movers well in advance. However, keep in mind that the heat may still present challenges for your movers.

Pack in Advance

We suggest you start packing around six weeks before your move to prevent stressing over last-minute packing on your moving day. Spending time packing some items each day can get it done without overwhelming you. Most movers won't carry items that haven't been packed by the scheduled moving time.

How Much do Movers Cost in McMinnville, OR

Movers in McMinnville cost $2,643 on average for moves less than 250 miles. It can cost up to $7,231 to move a larger 4 bedroom house the same distance. See the chart below for more moving estimates, and contact a moving company for a more accurate quote specific to your situation.
