Mike Moves Pittsburgh is a full service moving company operating out of the Turtle Creek Valley in Allegheny County, PA. We service all of Western PA for residential and business moving. No job is too small and our rates are way lower than most competitors! In addition, your goods are insured up to $25,000.00 Rates are as follows:
LOCAL MOVING RATES
Deposits are now mandatory due to an increase of people booking and then ditching their move once we are there. Deposit is equal to one hour of whichever plan you choose and is non-refundable. Thank you for understanding.
1) 3 men & a 26 foot truck for $170.00 per hour, 3 hour billing minimum required. If the move lasts longer than 3 hours we round off the charges to the nearest half hour. We like to be prepared & bringing the bigger truck for 2 bedroom homes or larger ensures we will have enough room to load all your belongings in one trip.
2) 2 men & a smaller truck or a pick up truck with attached trailer usually handle a 0ne bedroom home or efficiency apartment. This is billed at $120.00 per hour, again, with a 3 hour billing minimum.
We can add more men and/or trucks for bigger moves for your convenience. Please call for pricing if this is a need for your move.
STEPS/STAIRS- If there are 20 or more steps involved at any one location of your move, we will bill you at $5.00 per step. The more difficult it is on our guys, the more they make. This incentivizes them to do a great job with your move. 19 steps? No charge? 20 steps? That's $100.00- please make room in your budget for steps so there are no "surprises" for you at the end of the day.
Payment for services and/or materials is due at the completion of the day. We accept cash, Venmo, or Credit Cards
(NO PERSONAL CHECKS UNLESS PREVIOUSLY APPROVED).
Mileage fee- if you are moving 20 miles or more from your original residence, a $1 per mile fee will be added.
Specialty Item Fee- For any item weighing 300 pounds or greater a Specialty Item handling Fee of at least $250.00 will be charged. These items may be a triple door refrigerator, slabs of granite countertop, Armoire, China Buffet, Gun Safe, Entertainment Center or Treadmill. Most household furniture is not in excess of 300 pounds but the items that are require special attention & care and are handled by our most experienced movers. Multiple items over 300 pounds will be discounted at a rate of at least $50.00 per item.
Travel Time- Due to increased fuel costs we now charge travel time of at least $60.00 for those customers residing within a half hour of our office in Turtle Creek, PA. For those customers whose residence is more than 30 minutes from our office, the Travel Time will be pro-rated at $2.00 per minute for each minute in excess of 30 minutes (45 minutes= $90.00 Travel Time Fee, 50 minutes = $100.00, etc). Thank you for understanding the need for this fee. We do not wish to adjust our rates at this time but we must cover our costs. Thank you!
LONG DISTANCE MOVING RATES
Long Distance Rates pertain to those who are moving 40 miles or more. We operate on a sliding scale fee determined by the actual distance you are moving.
40 to 100 miles = .55 cents per pound, $1.00 per mile
101 miles to 200 miles = .65 cents per pound, $1.05 per mile
201 miles to 300 miles= .75 cents per pound, $1.10 per mile
