About The Owner
My name is Darion Chest , and I’m the owner and founder of Smoove Movers LLC located here in Portland, Oregon. Moving was just a part-time gig in college for me while pursuing a degree in business administration. I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit from a young age, mowing lawns and washing cars for $10-$20 a job. Along the way, I was able to gain hands-on experience and knowledge in different aspects of the moving industry such as digital marketing and sales. I later settled with another moving company after college; a brand new, single owner operation. I hoped to help build a successful small business from the ground up. I was able to work my way up to Operations Manager in just 3 years. The company was a success and still is today, though plans have changed.
In my experience, I’ve witnessed the unprofessionalism and stigma that exist in the moving industry and felt compelled to do something about it. My wife, Jasmyn also has over 8 years of sales experience atop of my 5+ years in sales and 7+ years in the moving industry at the time. In February of 2021, we decided to take a leap of faith to manage and operate our own moving company and haven’t looked back since. We created the business to put our community at ease by providing exceptional customer service. We prioritize the most efficient, safe, and professional moving practices to be the most trusted moving company in the NW.
Our mission is to create a positive, innovative, upbeat and safe culture for our team and customers to call home.
The moving industry has a bad reputation of unprofessionalism, carelessness, bad hygiene, and suspicious companies and workers.
