Pittsburgh Movers with a Truck

Published on 2020-04-28

Your favorite local movers are now available in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. Three Movers has become part of the over 90 neighborhoods that make up Pittsburgh. In tribute to the most famous neighbor in the area, Fred Rogers, Three Movers are working in the community to bring the best prices for professional moving services to everyone.

Whether you are moving into the neighborhood or out of it, Three Movers offer the most expertise and competitive prices for your move.

Local Move with Professionals

There are two options at your disposal when you decide to move locally. You can do it yourself and rent a truck while supplying your own manpower, or you can hire local professionals and a truck to do it. Hiring someone to help you with your move is not as expensive as you would think. Full-service movers often offer specials when you utilize more than one of their moving services.

Professional Packing Services

Most of your local movers, like Three Movers, offer professional packing services. These packing services can save you a lot of time when trying to throw a move together last minute. In most circumstances, you pay $25 to $30 an hour per packing professional. The packing materials are generally included in this price.

Packing professionals have the expertise in making sure your fragile items are packaged in a way that they will not get damaged during transport. These professionals also have the capability of getting your home packed for you in under a day, making it possible to hold off on packing until the day before the big move.

Local Moving Prices

When moving locally, the price will often depend on the amount of household goods you require moved. Most of your moving prices are compiled by the number of bedrooms and the length of time it will take. This is why getting in-home estimates are a good idea. Once you have a moving specialist look at all the items the move will entail, they can give you a more accurate estimate of what it will cost. Most professional moving companies offer quotes for free with no obligation.

Studio and One-Bedroom Apartments

If you are planning to move across Pittsburgh or even just down the street, a professional mover can help you get your things where they need to go. When moving a studio to a one-bedroom apartment, a professional moving service could accomplish your move within three to four hours. The price of moving a 1 bedroom apartment or a studio will be close to $200.


At approximately 1000 square feet, a two-bedroom move runs around $350 with the help of three local moving professionals. It will take them somewhere around six hours to complete a move of this size.

Three-Bedrooms or More

Three-bedroom homes are often calculated at 2000 square feet or more, depending on size and shape. Even with a crew of four moving professionals, this can become an all-day project, especially on homes over 2000 square feet and more than three-bedrooms. The amount a local move of this size could cost is close to $1000.

Base Pricing

The above prices are all base pricing for a move with professional movers. This does not include purchasing packing materials from the moving company or any extra movers you may employ for getting the job done quicker.

Although it is not a requirement, it is good manners to offer the moving professionals a tip. There is no actual set requirement for tipping moving personnel. The overall tipping amount should not be less than 10-15% of the total moving cost. It is also a good idea to hand each member of the moving crew their tip instead of giving it to a foreperson to hand out.

Long-Distance Moving

If you are moving to or from Pittsburgh from a further distance than a typical local move, Three Movers can help you with this move, too. Three Movers offer competitive pricing for longer-distance moves. Traditional long-distance moves are done by weight and distance.

The going rate for these types of moves are calculated around $.70 per one pound of household goods per 1000 miles. Depending on the size of the home you need to move, you could be looking at a higher price range.

Clean Out Your Closet

Any moving company you get a quote from, Three Movers included, will tell you that a long-distance move is the perfect time to downsize the belongings that you have. Items that you have not used since you got them and clothing that is decades old and untouched are ideal for selling or donating. Since long-distance moves are calculated by weight, the less weight, the less it will cost.

Go For The Insurance

All moving companies have standard insurance that they offer their clients. This liability insurance covers your belongings at approximately $.60 per pound. This is not the only coverage option available to you for your items. You can opt for the high-end insurance for an extra cost added to your moving expenses.

When deciding to opt for the additional insurance coverage, make sure you ask your moving specialist how soon before the move you need to activate the coverage. If it is not something you think you want, but decide before the move you do want it, it may be too late. Make sure that you clarify how many days before the move you need to request the coverage.

The added insurance not only covers your personal items but covers if something happens while the moving specialists are moving your items. A little added coverage never hurts, better to have it and not need it than not to have it and need it.

Customer Reviews

I want to take a moment to say thank you to the extremely hard working crew that handled my move. I admit I was skeptical of hiring a company to move my household stuff but I was so pleased with the services. These guys packed everything up and had it loaded and delivered in no time at all. Everything was taken care of from start to finish and my wife and I were able to take some much needed time to check out the new town without having to worry about getting things unpacked. Three Movers took care of everything and we really appreciate it!
