The Nuts & Bolts of Moving

We Charge by the Hour

At 2 Brothers we have done our best to make your charges as easy as possible to understand. 2 Brothers charges by the hour for local moving within the metro area of Portland. The hourly fee includes drive time to and from our warehouse at 3571 NW Yeon Ave Portland, OR 97210. This drive time charge covers the mileage, fuel, and any other trip costs for your move. The hourly charges are rounded to the nearest 15 minute increment (so you're not charged for the entire hour if it goes a little over).

Note: For your convenience a flat trip fee is charged instead of drive time when moving outside the metro area.


So How Long Does it Take?

Every time you move, there are several factors that determine the total time it takes to complete your move. Here are a few obvious ones: how many boxes, how much furniture, how many odds & ends need to be padded/ wrapped, how many items need to be disassembled/reassembled. ...And here are some less obvious factors: how big is the elevator, is it a shared or reserved elevator, are there long hallways, how close can we park the truck. We give very accurate estimates but in the end we charge by the hour.


Payment & Thank yous

Payment is accepted at the end of your move unless prior arrangements are made. Our forms of payment accepted are cash or check with a valid photo ID.

We really do appreciate your business!
