It’s no wonder why people move to Pennsylvania. The state has always been a magnet for dreamers and doers. Its the birthplace of the republic, proudly nicknamed the “Keystone State” for its central location in the geographic arc of the 13 original states. Inside the hallowed walls of the Pennsylvania State House in Philadelphia (aka Independence Hall), founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence and, a little more than a decade later, affixed their names to the Constitution.
Officially, the state is the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, underscoring the authority of its people in self-governance. As of July 1, 2015, the U.S. Census estimated Pennsylvania’s population at 12.8 million. Philadelphia is the largest city, with about 1.57 million people. Pittsburgh is the second largest city, with a little over 300,000 people. Weleski Transfer began operations in Pittsburgh more than 100 years ago. Today, our Pennsylvania movers provide moving and storage services throughout Pennsylvania from two locations. Our headquarters is situated in Tarentum, about 20 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. We also maintain a full-service business in Johnstown, about 60 miles east-southeast of Tarentum.
Weleski’s Pennsylvania movers offer a local advantage for moving in and around the greater Pittsburgh and Johnstown areas. Our Pittsburgh movers regularly serve families moving in and out of the big city and smaller communities in this region. Some of their names are: Kittanning, Creighton, Brackenridge, and Edgecliff. As an Atlas agent, we operate with a 100-mile radius of quality service. This includes Morgantown in West Virginia and Youngstown and Canton in Ohio. While we primarily serve families moving in and out of western Pennsylvania, our location and size enables us to provide service regionally—across the Pennsylvania Commonwealth as well as eastern Ohio and northern West Virginia.
If you’re contemplating a move to the Pittsburgh area or any of the locations I’ve outlined above, our local movers are ready to help you achieve a smooth transition to your new home. Give us a call (724-224-3330) or get a free quote for our moving service.
