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 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.
They moved me for my 6th professional move. These guys were by far the best moving company I've ever used. They packed everything properly and took care with both my possessions and home. It was pouring rain on my move day and we didn't have grass at our new home yet. I thought for sure I'd be cleaning up mid for weeks. Instead, they called extra workers, half stayed inside and half outside. The outside movers took the items from the truck and handed them over to the inside movers. This way none of the mud came into my home. I was shocked at how thoughtful they were and how well it went. Thank you!
UNREAL! Finally, a company that not only does what they say they’re going to do, they go above and beyond! We have moved several times from as far as Texas to Detroit to Pittsburgh. Out of all of the moving companies I have dealt with, Gardner was by far the very best. Their workers are friendly and professional. We moved from Mt. Lebanon to Eighty-Four and these guys finished about 2.5 hours early. ALSO, THE FINAL PRICE WAS ROUGHLY $350 LESS THAN WHAT THEY QUOTED!!! No items were damaged and they treated everything with care. In my past
moves, other companies always sent 2-guys, Gardner sent 4 of them and they all worked really hard. I will highly recommend this moving company to anyone that ever asks. Take it from someone that has used 7 different moving companies, they are the best!
"We previously moved with a different company and were very wary of movers as a result. Our concerns could not have been more appeased by Gardner moving. Joe, who did our appraisal, was extremely friendly and courteous. The estimate he provided was very fair. Our movers arrived promptly at 8:30am and had practically emptied our entire 3 story town home by 9:30am. They were completely done by 12:30 that day, 3 hours under our estimated time. Our furniture and belongings were treated with the utmost respect. Nothing was even remotely damaged, the walls were not dinged in even one spot, and they movers themselves was SO friendly and SO extremely quick. These guys were some of the nicest people I think I've ever met, and their help allowed our family to get moved into our new home with plenty of time to unpack and get ready for Christmas. I can't say enough good things about this moving company. They were superb!"
"I've moved 7 times in the last 14 years (mostly houses, not apartments), so have had a pretty decent cross-section sample of movers. Gardner, by far, has been the best of all. Courteous, professional, great prices and stand behind their work. I opted for a $500 deductible insurance coverage and had one issue with an item whose repair/replacement was well under that figure. Joe Gardner, without my asking, volunteered to cover it on the spot. I can't say enough about this company! They are the best!"
