Recent studies have shown that Pittsburgh, PA has become the most popular moving destination in the USA. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that more U-Haul trucks have arrived in Pittsburgh than any other city in 2012.

U-Haul’s National Migration Trend Report analyzes data from cities and areas that have had over 5000 moves, either arrivals or departures. U-Haul states that Pittsburgh growth has risen 9.04% in 2012. This is 2.5% higher than Henderson, NV, which ranks second on the list.

Pittsburgh has seen a recent growth in recent years. While its population had declined from 2003 to 2009, it has seen a steady growth in population since 2010. The Pittsburgh Economic Quarterly states that the regional growth has risen .2% since April 2010. The total population in the metropolitan area is now 2.36 million.

The study also indicates that younger people are moving to Pittsburgh. Since U-Haul only rents out vehicles, their customers have to do all the labor themselves. For people that would not like to do the work themselves, Gibraltar Van Lines is a NJ moving company that is staffed with professional and experienced movers and is dedicated to helping people young and old by alleviating the stress and hassle from moving.

“We go to Pittsburgh,” says company owner Cal O’Herly. “We supply all the materials: boxes and tape are all free with our services. We do all the donkey work. We’ll do the loading, unloading and delivery.” The skilled and courteous staff at Gibraltar Van Lines knows the most efficient ways to pack and move customers' possessions, and will even individually pack or crate delicate and valuable items.

Gibraltar Van Lines has many extra services beyond packing and delivery to help make every aspect of the move easy for our clients. They have automobile carrier trucks to deliver vehicles to new destinations. They offer up to four months of free storage in their New Jersey storage facility. The local and long distance movers are even trained to move pianos. They know the correct way to disassemble and reassemble pianos in order to pack them easily without damaging stars, doorways and the pianos themselves.
