Pittsburgh Movers Know Fall Fun For Kids

Moving is stressful for the whole family. Our Pittsburgh movers travel around Pennsylvania, moving families and seeing how hard it can be on kids. They recognize the importance of helping kids adapt to their new surroundings. Thankfully, fall is the perfect time for you to take the kids out.Little Pittsburgh mover in a wagon moving a pumpkin

Kids can’t wait for the excitement that comes from apple picking, pumpkin carving, and candy eating. They know that soon goblins, princesses, and witches will scour the streets asking “Trick or Treat.” Add their excitement with the nice fall weather, and you have new explorers prepared for the adventure of exploring a new home.

Our Pittsburgh movers thought you’d might like their suggestions for more fun fall outings with your family. Here are a few places our local movers recommend you visit for your family fall adventure.

McDonald, PA.

Most of the year, it’s a farm and greenhouse. But when autumn leaves begin to turn, Bedner’s hosts a festival of fun every weekend through October.  Just a half-hour’s drive southwest of Pittsburgh, it’s ideal for kids two and older. Face painting, magic shows, a corn maze, hayrides— and more “pumpkin patch” activities than you can shake a corn shock at—make this a perfect way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

Wexford, PA.

Come hungry to Soergel Orchards, because you’ll want to sample many tasty treats. Just 15 miles north of Pittsburgh, this is one of the area’s most popular weekend destinations during the fall. Enjoy smoked wings, pulled pork, and roasted sweet corn. And it just wouldn’t be fall without a hot corn dog, would it? Of course, there’s more to life than munching. You’ll find horse drawn carriage rides, a bounce house, and spin art to occupy the kids, and much more.

Portersville, PA.

About 40 miles north of Pittsburgh, Cheeseman Farm offers a “Pumpkin Festival” on weekends, with hayrides, a farm animals petting zoo, and a hay maze. If your clan enjoys the scary side of fall fun, hop on a haunted hayride to the Fright Farm. Boo! (Maybe not for your littlest youngsters).

Gibsonia, PA.

Have you ever gone “pumpkin bowling”? Here’s your chance. About twenty miles north of Pittsburgh,  Harvest Valley Farm hosts a fall festival every weekend in October.  You can hop on a hayride,  take a knife to a pumpkin, and tap your foot to live music as you sip a cup of cider.

McMurray, PA.

About 15 miles south of Pittsburgh, Simmons Farm lets you not only pick your own pumpkin, but pick your own apples. The kids will enjoy pony rides and rubber duck races, and corn mazes. They also offer an “apple sling shot” in case you don’t want to eat all the apples you picked.

These are only a few of the many fall activities for kids you’ll find around Pittsburgh. For more, check out Bits of the Burgh or call our Pittsburgh movers. And have fun!

Moving Companies With Home Court Advantage

Make an online search for moving companies, and you’ll see a lot of names come up on your screen. Which one is right for you? The answer depends on what you’re looking for.Skyline of Pittsburgh focused on Heinz Field

All moving companies have what you might call a “home court advantage” in terms of service area. That is, their location enables them to serve nearby customers most efficiently. Weleski is headquartered in Tarentum, Pennsylvania, 20 miles from the heart of Pittsburgh. We also have full-service moving and storage locations in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, and Cleveland, Ohio. So we are positioned to provide excellent customer service not only to the Pittsburgh metro area, but to the entire western half of Pennsylvania and to the northern and eastern regions of Ohio.

Our Home Court Advantage

Here are the advantages we give our customers over other Cleveland and Pittsburgh moving companies.

Awarded Quality

At Weleski, we strive for service that delights, so quality is our prime motivator. It’s the reason for the referrals and recommendations we get from customers. It’s the reason for our long-running (15 consecutive years) achievement of the Milt Hill Quality Award — the highest honor for an Atlas Agent. You could say service excellence is non-negotiable. Quality is the very basis of our family business that spans four generations. So, we believe it is the first thing any family should look for when looking for Pittsburgh or Cleveland moving companies.

ProMover® Certification

That said, how do you know if particular moving companies will indeed deliver the quality you expect? For starters, look to see that the moving company carries the ProMover® designation. This mark signifies that the American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA) itself vouches for the company. AMSA is the industry’s largest professional association, and it administers the program to protect consumers from disreputable moving companies—of which, unfortunately, there are quite a few.

Trusted Movers

Another way you can tell about the quality of moving companies is through their representatives. Are they professional in their communications by phone and email? When you meet the representative for an in-home estimate of our moving services, you have the chance to ask questions about the company. You can learn a lot about the quality of a company through its employees. Our movers strive for personal and professional excellence. We are proud to say the quality of our service is reflected in the quality of our employees.

You’ll see lots of Ohio and Pennsylvania moving companies. I recommend you choose one that has reliable industry credentials, a proven history of quality, references from delighted customers, unquestionable professionalism, and services in your neighborhood.
