I've received some great replies from my previous posts, so I thought I'd ask another question!

We are moving to Pittsburgh from Texas in late July, and we need to hire someone to help us move our furniture and boxes into our new apartment. We will be living in the neighborhood of Friendship. Does anyone have any suggestions for moving companies?

By far, the most affordable moving company in the area is Dorrs Wilkinsburg Moving Exchange or simply Wilkinsburg Moving Exchange. They have the same address, but different phone numbers for some reason. I used them many times back when I was a renter who moved often. They are affordable, but still very competent.

On our recent move from the Baltimore suburbs (Columbia, MD) to the Pittsburgh South Hills (Bethel Park) we used George Moving and Storage. They were very professional, the move went great, and they are an agent of northAmerican, so they would be able to do a long distance move no problem.

I wouldn't say they were "cheap", but we had relocation expenses paid for by my partner's employer, but I think they were reasonable for the amount of stuff they moved. For a one bedroom apartment, they were around $1700, which after pricing long distance movers, was right about standard.

When my partner and I moved from CA to DC three years ago we priced movers, and renting a U-Haul was going to cost $1200. Yeesh! We opted to ship valuables, sell off most of our furniture, and take what we could in our small car.
