The history of Don Farr Moving & Storage
In 1982, Don Fix was being contracted for work at Miller’s Furniture, in Pittsburgh, PA. When this company closed, they sold their 14’ Ford F-600 to Don and he began this small company with that truck and used his own 600 square foot garage at home for storage. Subsequently, he named it Don Farr Moving and Storage. This company grew slowly to four trucks (24 ft. box trucks) and a crew of 20 employees.
The storage facility at that time consisted of about 4,000 square feet. Since 1982, Don Farr Moving has acquired five additional moving companies, which all exist under ‘Exclusive Services, Inc.” Don Farr Moving and Storage is one of the largest moving companies that has served metropolitan Pittsburgh and its surrounding areas with top performance, innovation, and commitment to personal service. Over the last few years, we have proudly been named the “Hometown Movers”.
Today, this company has a crew of over 175 employees and about 100 moving trucks (vans, straight trucks, tractor units, trailer units and 14 foot box vans). Don Farr has its own authority, and accomplishes this without a van line for assistance. We also purchased a 30,000 square foot climate-controlled warehouse for storage. An experienced supervisor oversees this facility on a full time basis.
We serve 48 states and handle residential, commercial and international moving needs. Don Farr Moving and Storage takes pride in offering a friendly and efficient staff dedicated to serving their public. We are open seven days a week and have phones that answer 24 hours a day. We offer guaranteed pick up and delivery dates to meet our customer’s needs.
This business is family owned, operated, and managed today by Don Fix’s sons. David and Russell have over 35 years of experience combined, encouraging their staff to collaborate as a team, functioning to get each job done right.
