The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has put a stop to the normal routines of every day life both in the U.S. and abroad. And while social distancing is the course of action to take until told otherwise, moves aren’t always something that can wait. How does moving during an epidemic work though, and more importantly—are moving services even still available?

Now in its fourth generation of business, Gardner Moving was established in 1914 in the South Side of Pittsburgh, operating out of a barn and stable, using horses and wagons, which were the means of conveyance at the time. The business transitioned to trucks in the mid-1920’s, and built a garage in Pittsburgh‘s South Side. In 1955, the business was passed on to Louis’ son, Joseph F. Gardner, serving the South Side and the surrounding area.
In 1976, Joseph P. Gardner (3rd generation) took over the reins of the company, expanding the reach of service into the suburbs of Pittsburgh.
In 1980, Joe’s brother, Michael W. Gardner, joined the business after completing his duties in the U.S. Army. Together the brothers grew the business by expanding their local capabilities and establishing long distance moving services while keeping the spirit of personal attention and service at the forefront of their business.
In 1996, the company purchased land in South Fayette Township and built a Warehouse/office and Self-Storage Facility, Secure Storage Inc., Which now serves as a base of operations.
In keeping with family tradition, Joe’s sons, Mike E. and Mark, joined the business in 1993 and 1997, respectively. Joe’s wife, Kathy, managed the office from 2002-2013. Michael W.’s wife, Lynn, and his daughter, Alexandra, are also on the team as office managers, having joined the company in 2007 and 2014, respectively.
The Gardner family is proud of their long legacy of service to the Pittsburgh area and looks forward to serving your family soon.
I moved last year and used Gardner Moving to empty out a storage unit, move everything into the house, and also empty a POD. When I requested a quote through them, they did that over the phone, but let me know that it will vary based on the amount of time it took. They said that it was most likely on the high end, but I felt they provided an honest quote based on the info i gave them.
The price turned out to be about half of what they said. The movers were very professional and handled everything with care. I was extremely impressed with how fast they worked & was extremely happy with the service.
I was struggling moving a piece of furniture to my apartment, and luckily a powerful gentleman in a Gardner Moving tshirt that was driving by pulled over and offered to help out of the kindness of his heart. Thank You! When I need a moving service I will remember to rely on Gardner.
