Cindy On The Move, Sept. 2022

Your team helped me purge, organize and pack completely. Set up a POD, rent a space, and ship my car all in a timely affordable manner. My real estate agent was amazed. She will be calling you. Keep up the great service!

I just wanted to thank you again for ALL your assistance with my parent’s move. It is not often that you run across people who do their jobs so exceptionally.

Michele L., April 2022

Even through I didn’t know where in CA I was going, the team was great arranging and packing my POD. All of the team members worked well together.

Far above our expectations. Simply can not praise the team enough. My friend had no breakage, loss or scratches on her belongings.

Everyone was so polite, positive and focused. I was impressed with the whole team. I have already recommended TMM to 2 of my neighbors.

The downsizing and packing teams were clean and professional. My friend’s porcelain collection was packed perfect and arrived in MO without damage. Could not have been happier.

Faithful Friend, March 2022

I was very happy with the sorting and organizing services we used for my brother. We needed to get his house on the market promptly and TMM made that process easier for both of us.

Satisfied Sister, March 2022

I was so impressed with the organizing, sorting and packing team that helped us move out of home. Our PODS were all sorted and packed for a very lengthy out of state adventure!

I was extremely happy with all of the services we used to move my mother. All the workers treated her and her belongings with respect and kindness.

Appreciative Son, March 2022

So grateful my lawyer gave me the TMM referral. Amazed with the organizing and sorting service before I put the house on the market. So many decisions and they helped guide me through the process. I appreciated that TMM took care of donating, removal and recycling our items. Made the sell of my home go smoothly.

We used the full service and management package. Stunned how smooth the pack, move and unpack went. Very impressed with the professionalism of all the team workers.

Gabrielle is a gem! She’s a worker bee!

AG, Milwaukie

Paivi was amazing…her supervision of the moving team and getting the house ready for our first night was so helpful!

S. A., Portland

Not only did your crew reduce my stress level and feelings of being overwhelmed they made the day and the move possible. I shudder to think what would have happened if they had not been there. In fact, I suspect I would still be there trying to do it myself! Clearly I am more than pleased that I used The Move Makers and will certainly recommend your company to anyone when I have the opportunity to do so.

Bill E., Colorado

I liked how everyone pitched in and were so efficient.

L.N., a satisfied client in Portland

Everyone was extremely kind and so helpful. Everyone worked extremely hard. Paivi’s grasp of what needs to be done and her overall professionalism is absolutely incredible!

Susie and Patrick Troccolo, Lake Oswego

Paivi and Gabrielle did a marvelous job. I can heartily recommend their courtesy and expertise to any future clients.

Everyone I encountered was amazing, professional, and helped us reduce stress.

A Happy Client from Lake Oswego

We have been customers for two moves. Both were great experiences.

Deborah U.

From start to finish, the Move Makers met every need. Patient, thorough, organized and experience are just the words I would use for this team. Moving my Mom was going to be a very difficult task. Working with the Move Makers to get it done was one of my all time best choices! The value for the dollar is second to none, just like the way they treated my Mother! I will always be grateful for their superior customer service!!

Mark J.

I could not ask for better service. Lisa provided superb service. I will recommend your service to everyone.

Deepinder S.

Paivi is a wonder! Didn’t have to babysit her! Amazingly organized in her packing!

Constance A.

We love working with The Move Makers! They are enthusiastic, efficient experts in the move management field. They have a great team who can make any move less stressful.

Top Move Management

I want to thank you for the great job that you did for Carol. She was in that home in Tigard for 40 years. She lost her husband around a year ago and was feeling isolated. It was an enormous project to move and remodel the new home and your assistance was critical to her success. I really appreciate how quickly you were able to get her packed up and how flexible you were with her moving plan. Paivi was amazing. Carol told me several times that she could never have done it without you.

Carol B.

Loved meeting Nicole, Kate and Patrick. They made me feel like they were family helping me. Very grateful.

Michelle M.

The Move Makers are my new best friends! They were able to accommodate me on a tight schedule. From start to finish the process was super professional, CLEAN, coordinated, on time and friendly. My teammates Lisa & especially Paivi were superstars with great attitudes! Thank YOU all! KEB

Kendra B.

Service was efficient, accommodating and very thorough and made a difficult move much easier.

Curt, Lake Oswego

I wanted to let you know how wonderful Paivi was. She was absolutely the perfect person to come help us! She helped us sort through everything so much more quickly than we would have been able to on our own. She was very thorough and learned quickly what we wanted to keep and what to donate. She did an excellent job spotting valuable things and bringing them to our attention. I really couldn’t have been happier!

Satisfied Client, Beaverton, Oregon

Appreciate all the professional help. Just what I needed.

Happy Client, Portland

Top quality people! Very professional organization – we were thankful to find out about them; our move was easy because of them –

Very Satisfied Clients

Arlene, Lake Oswego

The team that helped us was fantastic! They worked so fast and efficiently. Highly recommend!

Grateful Family

Your company has this down to a science and an art. Overall a great service. Moving after 49 years is very stressful but MM went a long way in mitigating that stress. Thank you.

Dennis, Lake Oswego

You guys are fabulous! I couldn’t have done this without you! Very satisfied!

Carol, Lake Oswego

I used this company twice so obviously pleased!They even stored houseplants for me in Carolyn’s garage & all came back healthy.

Judy in Lake Oswego

Prior to working with The Move Makers, I felt overwhelmed by the prospect of extensively downsizing and moving. After the first session with Rachael, my anxiety had diminished greatly. The team members were very efficient and extremely pleasant.

Extremely Happy Client in Lake Oswego

Our move from house to apartment was easily accomplished by a team of very experienced packers and movers who worked swiftly, carefully, and with delightful enthusiasm! Jennifer was invaluable with her early-on advice on how to eliminate and downsize. Her team packed and marked all furniture and boxes so the movers could place them exactly where I wanted them. Move Makers then unpacked what I wanted and made our bed!! Fantastic! We highly recommend The Move Makers.

B.C. Armbrust in Lake Oswego

Jennifer was wonderful and your team of packers, top-notch! Thank you so much for helping me through an overwhelming project and interstate move. I survived and am very happy in my new place!

Nancy D.

They are professional, kind, and help reduce your stress while moving and downsizing. They have helped me move my business and also downsizing and organizing my home. I HIGHLY recommend and trust them.

Whitney G.

I am obviously extremely satisfied. I will definitely recommend you to anyone who tells me they are thinking about moving. In fact I have already passed your information along to two other couples.

A Happy Client in Lake Oswego

I couldn’t be more pleased. I have bragged about you to everyone!

A Grateful Client in Lake Oswego

It was a year ago when I met with Jennifer – and I just felt like we connected immediately. She was so kind and understanding of my situation after losing my husband so recently. She put me at ease – assuring me that they would be able to help make my move go smoothly – and boy, did they! In 6 1/2 hours my move was complete – everything put away in all the closets, cupboards & drawers – beds made & towels hung up! When they left it looked like I had been living here weeks already!

A Grateful Client in Lake Oswego

You obviously have this down to a fine science. Best money I’ve spent having you help us move!

Rick and Kristine G. in Lake Oswego

Thank you very much! Could not have managed without all of you!

A Happy Client in Lake Oswego

Thank you for all your help with the large amount of stuff Mom keeps & guards – you were a Godsend for me!

Grateful Family Member

Best decision I ever made was to hire The Move Makers…

An Elated Client in Lake Oswego

Smooth and super service through the transition of moving.

N.K.I, in Lake Oswego

The moving experience I had with The Move Makers exceeded my expectations. Before the move I appreciated that a professional manager gave me an overview of all aspects of the move; cost, staff responsibilities, length of packing and unpacking and introducing me to my new place and how to set it up. All the organization by the managers and friendly, caring staff helped me to stay calm during the move. I was assured that all my possessions would be cared for with respect, and they were.

Betty in Lake Oswego

Jennifer was very efficient and friendly.

Linda S., Lake Oswego

A fine job that helped me get through a difficult and sad time. Good work!


You made the move so easy – both packing and unpacking. My new home came together within hours. What a good bunch of people! Friendly, efficient, and courteous!

Alvi M., Lake Oswego

We loved that the team unpacked and took away all the boxes and paper. We were the envy of all our neighbors who’d moved in recently – we could park our car in the garage the very first night!

Satisfied Client

The move went off without a hitch. The move was thoroughly professional and seamless from beginning to end. The team was friendly, yet always focused and continued to work. The move manager was great at communication, and we appreciated being reminded of each next step. The team cleaned out our old home – when we left, we left. It was nice not to have to go back. The team got us unpacked and settle into our new home – it looked like us, it looked like our place. Well worth it!

Ricky & Mary, Lake Oswego

It was wonderfully smooth. They had good ideas on how to arrange my collections in my apartment – very aesthetically pleasing. I appreciated the fact that it was all over in a short time, and I could rest. I appreciated that I could sleep in my new home that first day. The move manager [Jennifer] went above and beyond the call of duty – for instance, she came back and hung all my artwork and pictures after the fact.

Alvida, Lake Oswego

We couldn’t have asked for a better group of people. It certainly helped make our move easier.

Lake Oswego Client

Our family had a very positive experience. We worked well together and accomplished my parents’ move to independent as planned. I am grateful!

Satisfied Client

The team was very thorough, detailed and proficient. I was very pleased with the outcome.

Satisfied Client

The service provided was exceptional. They made our downsizing and organizing experience memorable.

Satisfied Client

I love your staff, especially Paivi! Everything was beautifully and carefully packed.

Grateful in King City

You guys exceeded expectations! I was amazed and impressed! Cathy set up my Beaverton apartment wonderfully.

B.D., Beaverton

I just took the “Get Organized” class and had no idea organizing major projects could be broken down into tiny, manageable tasks. Now, I’m not afraid to tackle the huge project for my business that’s been weighing me down. Let this team show you how to move your projects forward. Thank you, Carolyn and The Move Maker team!

Diane E.

I’ve worked with the Move Makers for several months and have enjoyed how enthusiastic and organized everyone is. If you’re ever looking for packing, sorting, or move-managing services, I would highly recommend them.

Nicholas D

The Move Makers have helped me on several moves both moving out and back in. They are efficient and do a great job, and are a pleasure to work with.

Jennifer P.

Carolyn was such a pleasure to work with! Such an attention to detail and really cares about all of her clients! Would recommend to everyone else!
