Reasons Why We Love Gresham, Oregon

Below are the top reasons why we love Gresham — and so will you. Keep reading to learn more about this great city and get excited about your upcoming move!

Close to the City

Gresham is just east of Portland. You can easily get to the city for a late night show, daytime event, or date night out without any hassle. You will love how close you are to the heart of the city without having to live too close. Within minutes you can ride your bike along the Willamette River, enjoy lunch at a downtown food cart, or explore the city right from your backyard!

Close to Nature

If you are not a city person, you’re in luck! Mt. Hood, gorgeous national parks, and endless trails can be found west of Gresham. You won’t believe how gorgeous the hikes are and how much wildlife you will see when you step out your door for an adventure. Want to get even further away from the city? Keep driving West and you will eventually find ski resorts and getaway cabins perfect for snow lovers.

4 Seasons

The weather in the PNW is typically very rainy. However, the good news is that you will get to experience all 4 seasons here. You may even see some snow in the wintertime if you are lucky. The shift in seasons is great for those that love the colors of Fall and Spring, but the extremes of Summer and Winter, too.

Day & Nightlife Activities

There is plenty to do in Gresham and other nearby cities. Visit a museum in Portland, grab a bite at a quirky restaurant, then drive 20 minutes south for paddle boating in Lake Oswego. Then, later that night, take a walk or a drive around the city to take in the sights and nightlife that is unique to Portland. No matter what you are interested in, you are sure to find adventure around here.

“Teresa, Thank you so very much for sending Robert, Kameron, Andrew and David to my home to move our large items last week. The professionalism shown by your crew was incredible! They made what could have been a very trying day into a pleasure. They were quick, effecient, and very nice to work with. Thanks again!”

-Debra and Jon, SE Portland, OR

“We had Priestly and Sons relocate my Mother into an assisted living apartment. Robert and Cameron arrived on time and checked in with facility staff on how to access the apartment and started the move. They worked quickly and efficiently with no impact to other elderly residents. After my Mothers furniture and belongings were relocated they loaded up the truck with the excess furniture and delivered it to a couple our relatives. It was a long day with a lot of milk run type stops to drop off this and that. The two guys were very courteous and pleasant for the entire day. Most all of our family uses Priestly for their moves and in our extended family there has never been a discouraging word about the Priestly company or employees. Job well done Robert and Cameron.”

-Doug J.

“I am so pleased and impressed with the move efforts & performance by the Priestley team, including the initial contact, the from-to move site visit, and the actual move itself. The movers - Robert, Zach, & Matt Z. were fantastic! They were curious, professional and committed to make the move go without a hitch. Everything was perfect and most importantly, there was no damages of any type. A great experience and I would highly recommend Priestly & Sons for your moving needs.”

-Jim N.

“It has taken me too long to give a review. I'm still up to my neck in boxes. But I really wanted to share how fabulous these guys were to work with. So very professional, and also just all-around nice guys. I really felt that my things were in good and capable hands, and nothing was damaged at all. I really appreciated the way they taped the boxes up with the edges of the tape a little loose. Seems an odd thing that I would mention that, but that little extra courtesy made it so much easier to unpack the boxes later. I would highly recommend Priestly to anyone considering a move. Thanks, guys!”

-Lesley N.

“By far the best moving experience (& I’ve had quite a few moves unfortunately) but the guys were super quick, thorough, stacked the boxes nicely in my storage & provided several walk ways which no other company has ever done. I definitely feel like they went above and beyond. I tried to get them again & they were booked out too far but I don’t blame them for being busy they rocked. The movers weren’t creepy either like two other local companies I’ve went through. They were just ideal & went above & beyond”
