Professional Movers vs. Renting a Moving Truck

We all want to be wise consumers, try to save a dollar when we can. For this reason, it’s tempting to rent a moving truck rather than hire professional movers. I understand that—I’ve even helped people in such situations with professional packing supplies and services. (I don’t begrudge anyone trying to save money. In this […]

Weleski Home Moving Service

I was driving the Interstate the other day when I saw an oversize load traveling in the opposite direction. A convoy was moving an entire house intact — it was quite a production. “Well,” I thought “that’s one way to handle the packing.” Moving Everything but the Kitchen Sink I’m going to tell you about a […]

Cleveland: A Great Place to Work and Play

Cleveland has come a long way over the last few decades to become a world class destination for living, buy working, and visiting. One of the most recent feathers in its fedora is being chosen as host city for the 2016 Republican Convention. There will be drama! You’ve heard of LeBron James, star of the Cleveland […]

How to Get a Moving Quote

Something we routinely offer customers is a free quote for moving services. This is pretty common in the moving industry—and it should be. Making a move isn’t an easy, one-size-fits-all purchase. Your move is uniquely yours; it may be similar to others, but it’s not identical. So you, and every customer, should get a detailed quote […]

Pennsylvania Moving Migration

It’s not quite on the scale of the Israelites fleeing Egypt. But an Exodus is taking place. Movers in Pennsylvania (and moving companies in Pittsburgh, such as Weleski) are seeing it firsthand.

From accounting to marketing, from sales to human resources, record-keeping comes with a lot of paper baggage. Even in this so-called digital age. Checks, invoices, reports, contracts, etc. all add up to hundreds (if not thousands) of pounds. After a while, you have a scattered Rubik’s cube of cartons cluttering your workspace and stretching your storage. (Did […]

We earned “it” again. (And for the first time).

“It” is the “award of awards” in our business—the Milt Hill Quality Award. In November, Atlas recognized our Pittsburgh movers again (fourteen years straight) for an outstanding commitment to quality.  It was also the first time our Cleveland moving company location received the award. (Were it not for the volume threshold, which applies to each Atlas location […]

Is your mover a pro? How do you know?

Like every industry, moving employs a lot of different people with varying skills and capabilities. By some accounts, anyone who earns money from their work is deemed a “professional.” Here at Weleski, we believe professionalism is much more than the ability to draw a paycheck. For us, it entails insistence on best practices, systems for […]
