Moving is an exciting experience that’s full of new beginnings. When you move a long way from the place you call home, you get the chance to discover all the things you love about the new city that you got accustomed to at your old place. That means finding new schools, coffee shops, grocery stores, vets, hair stylists, and all the amenities you need in between. 

Of course, while moving can be fun, it can also be a hassle if you don’t have help. In this blog, we’ll share a few reasons to consider Priestley & Sons as your long-distance Gresham movers

At Priestley & Sons, we are dedicated to giving you a great moving experience from the start. Here is what makes us some of the best long-distance Gresham movers:


Whether you’re moving from Gresham to another city or to Gresham from another part of Portland, you’re sure to deal with your fair share of traffic. Driving a large moving truck on the interstate can be tricky if you haven’t done it before. It can also be challenging to get your items ready for the big move, especially if you’re getting things squared away to leave your hometown.

Gresham residents and businesses have counted on us for more than 90 years to take care of the drive and the rest of the moving experience without worry. We have 11 moving trucks, nothing but hard-working and experienced movers, and multiple happy customer reviews that prove that we’re the ones for the job.

Many of our customers have said, “I have too much stuff to move. I’m not sure what to do with all of it.” That’s where storage comes in handy (plus a good declutter).

Priestley & Sons has not just one but two storage locations in Portland (only for our moving customers). Know that your items will be well monitored and safe during their stay—however long that might be. (We offer short-term and long-term storage.)


Some moving companies just help you load things up onto the moving truck, but we do that and more. Priestley & Sons is happy to assist you with every component of your move, down to packing the items into boxes. 

We can move items of every size, including:

  • Safes
  • Pianos
  • Dressers
  • Beds
  • Ovens
  • Dishwashers 
  • Treadmills
  • Sofas
  • Tables
  • Chairs 
  • Bookshelves 
  • And more!

We have the necessary experience to take care of it all. Save yourself the headache, and give our team a holler.

“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”
