Revolutionizing the way people move
U-Pack Moving® is a nationwide “you pack, we drive” moving service, specializing in long-distance moves. Initially designed as a way to help consumers lower the cost of moving by doing some of the work on their own, U-Pack has grown into a highly-regarded choice for people moving out of state – including those with standard household moves, apartment moves, student moves, corporate moves, military moves and storage needs. U-Pack customers pack, load and unload their own belongings, and U-Pack arranges all of the transportation. Customers call it a “great alternative” to full-service moving and truck rental.
U-Pack® first launched nationwide on October 1, 1997 by ABF Freight System, Inc., as an innovative way of moving residential belongings across the country in combination with traditional commercial freight. Since that time, U-Pack has arranged over 500,000 shipments traveling over 600 million miles. And over the past decade and a half, the service has evolved into a popular self-move service using a variety of reputable transportation suppliers to deliver household goods across the country. U-Pack is a service of Moving Solutions, Inc.
How U-Pack Works
- U-Pack arranges for an empty trailer or moving container to be delivered to your location.
- You load your belongings.
- U-Pack arranges delivery to your new location.
- You unload your belongings.
U-Pack prices are based on the linear footage your shipment occupies in the trailer or the number of containers you use. There are no additional charges for fuel, tax, highway tolls or standard liability coverage. And, rather than in-home estimates, U-Pack makes the moving process easier by providing online moving space estimators and online moving quotes. U-Pack also offers the ability to track your shipment in transit, 24/7, via the online tracking system.
U-Pack Service Area
Through a network of service centers throughout the country, U-Pack is able to provide direct service to more than 98% of U.S. cities with populations exceeding 30,000. U-Pack provides service to over 44,000 communities in all 50 states, Canada, Puerto Rico, and Mexico.
The external dimensions of the trailers are approximately 28’ x 8’ x 9’, and sit approximately 48” off the ground. A full trailer will typically hold a standard-size four bedroom home. The minimum space (5 linear feet) will typically hold a standard-size studio apartment. Trailers come equipped with ramps for loading and unloading. Read more about U-Pack trailer moves here.
The moving container’s external dimensions are approximately 6’ x 7’ x 8’. It sits flat on the ground for easy loading and unloading, and you can reserve one or as many as you need – and only pay for the number of containers you actually use. One container can typically hold the contents of a standard-size studio apartment. Read more about moving container moves here.
