If you’re contemplating a move to or from Pittsburgh, you may have asked yourself what a local Pittsburgh moving company might do to make it simple for you. Good question! No doubt there are as many answers as there are local moving companies. Here’s how our Pittsburgh movers answer.
Your first task, naturally, is to ascertain the cost and timing for your move. The cost part is pretty straightforward—all reputable Pittsburgh movers will provide an estimate in writing based on a walk-through of your home.
In general terms, the cost for moving is a factor of weight and distance. Other factors can enter in, such as costs for packing or crating special items, unhooking and disassembling things, unusual access challenges (long carries and lots of stairs, for example.) So it’s important that all these things be taken into consideration from the start. An advantage of working with an experienced Pittsburgh mover like Weleski is economy; we waste no effort, and we advise you on how you can save money in the process of moving.
If you have a mind to do your own packing, we can help as much or as little as you may need. Our customer service representative will advise you on which materials you’ll need and in what quantities. We can also steer you away from inferior materials—like “cheapo” packing tape that will only aggravate and waste your time.
As for timing, we emphasize planning. Four to six weeks gives you ample time in which to attend to the details. Courtesy of Atlas Van Lines, here’s a typical move checklist based on a four-week timetable. Sometimes, a change in employment or a family situation comes with little advance notice. In those cases, it helps to have a Pittsburgh mover like Weleski with the resources and experience to act swiftly.
You’ll also want the peace of mind knowing your things are protected while in the care of your local mover. We routinely provide Full Value Protection on our long-distance moves. In the event something unforeseen happens and an item is damaged, we repair or replace it. Of course, you have the option to decline this coverage, but we strongly recommend you accept it. It’s relatively inexpensive.
Ultimately, the answer to all that our Pittsburgh movers can do for you depends on what you need. With more than 50 years in this business, we understand the importance of listening. When you’re ready to discuss moving, get in touch and we’ll answer.
