I'm moving in a couple of weeks and have amassed a ridiculous amount of junk that I need to get rid of. I don't have a truck or anything, so I've been looking into those 1-800-GOT JUNK people, but their web site is absolutely no help at all.
The question is: Have you used 1-800-GOT JUNK? If so, what volume of junk did you get rid of and how much did it cost you?
If they would just post approximate costs on their web site instead of "we don't know how much it will cost you until we see the volume of your junk," I'd be happy. I don't mind if it isn't the final cost, but I don't feel comfortable setting up an appointment for them to haul our junk until I know if we're in the $50 market or the $500 market.
Post your prices, people! (and... go!)
I'm visiting Portland for the first time next week. While I won't have a problem finding the beer, rain, and Oden jerseys that have historically defined your city, I'm wondering if you can suggest where I might watch Federer win Wimbledon again; this will happen on Sunday the 8th. Most sports-type bars down here, at least, only show the lesser sports. Thank you, and may God have mercy on your soul.
I want to get my windows tinted ASAP. The going price seems to be between $225-$250. I have a 2003 VW Golf 4-door hatchback. I was wondering if there is a cheaper place that uses a tint that won't turn purple or get those air bubbles in them. I prefer something on the westside but anywhere in Portland that is cheaper will do.
Thanks in advance.
Update me on the newest most awesome conveyor sushi joins in this burg :)
My current fav is Sushiville on NW trendy-third. :)
Where's a good place for a girl to get a cute, punky, relatively inexpensive haircut? (Preferably in NE, or wherever I can bus to, really.)
Do any of you guys know of any places with a halfway decent selection of rhinestones and sequins?
I've been to michael's' joanns, and fabric depot, but their selection was minimal.
Are there temp agencies in Portland that people have had luck with? I'm looking for work to hold me through until the summer when I go back to my seasonal job. Any ideas? Thanks!
I'm looking to buy a used car. Who is a good person/company/mechanic to look at it to make sure it's not a lemon? I'd be ok paying $50 (or so) for the service.
Ok, since I am not made of money, anyone know where I can get brakes, calipers, tune up/oil change on my Jeep cherokee? OR do it yourself? I am running on metal and it wabbles so much when I hit the brakes, it is hard to steer.
We are looking for a spot on the Columbia River (or surrounding area) to watch the fireworks at Fort Vancouver. We are a medium sized group (10+ people).
Does anyone have any suggestions/directions?
PS Swimming, fireworks watching and some shade are the three things we are looking for?
also, we just found out we cannot set them off by our home, any good places to go shoot them off?
After extensive internet searching, I've come to the conclusion that *I NEED YOU* (ha) to help me find a place in Portland.
I'll be back in town by Aug 1 and am looking for *AFFORDABLE* studios & 1 bedroom apartments. I want your opinions, tips, etc - not just links to search engines!
Area: Anything on the EAST SIDE OR in Downtown. NW pdx is ok, but doubtfully affordable. My price range cuts off around $600/month.
Also, does anybody know about those cheap crappy apartment studios on W Burnside that have the toilet showers? They used to be like...$375/month. Not classy living but I'm nowhere near high brow.
Does your bank use a Visa logo on its debit/bank cards? Do you actually like your bank? Is there a low amount of money required to start an account there? If so, please let me know :)
I have a WaMu account, but they use mastercard and I need to start an account with a bank that utilizes Visa.

my best friend was planning on getting a 2 bedroom house here in portland, but at the last minute, her brother/roommate had to postpone his arrival for two months (damned navy) - Her stuff is in storage out of town, she is now in portland, and can't swing a 2 bedroom on her own. My couch is not a viable option for long-term.
anyhoo- she is looking for a sublet or a studio that is short term, july and august only. Most places we have found with vacancies have minimum lease options of 6 months. She has called on several dozen sublets via craigslist, but I was hoping the damnedportlanders-fu would be strong, and someone have a spare bedroom/out of town roommate for the next 8 weeks. She is low-maintenance and pretty damn awesome.
so i'm new here, don't know many people beyond the DPers i met at the meetup, and while i could just take a bike ride to sauvie island by myself on the 4th, i'd be much more interested in beer and sociableness. anyone want a clueless-about-where-to-watch-fireworks, generally friendly and fun girl for company on the 4th of July? i'll throw in that i can bake really delicious pies.
edit: no, this isn't me fishing for a date; it's more like me fishing for a group of other possibly new-to-pdx or otherwise friendless people to hang out with. and no, you don't have to do my dishes or haul my laundry. ;)
....can anyone tell me where a non-starbucks coffeeshop would be around 8th and NE Broadway? that is open now, or until midnight, or 24 hours? Thanks in advance...
