As someone who is moving back to Portland, I'm looking forward to returning to an area I love. However, I didn't want to take the moving process for granted. So, I picked up this book. It covers a lot of territory, including packing, selecting a moving company or truck rental co. (the ins and outs), the move itself, searching for a home, utilities, community resources, public transit, etc. It's been a terrific resource and I'll continue to refer to it for those first few weeks after arriving whi ...more

This is another Portland guidebook that I did not read cover to cover but did read enough of to know it was/is helpful.

Liz sent this book to me before I moved from Kansas. I've I've carried it around for over four months, referring to it whenever I needed information about living in Portland.

It's helped a lot and given me a lot of good information to help smooth my move and new life in Portland.

I'm not ready to give it back yet.

If you are thinking of moving to Portland or near Portland this is a valuable resource, which will give you more information, then what you can find online. It explains utilities, neighborhoods, lifestyles, average weather statistics and more. It is full of so much great information. I still pull it off the bookshelf and review it at times. I can’t recommend them enough.

Seems like a good resource. Some things are outdated, but it still gets you on the right track.
