How will you move your furniture?

Okay quick – name your favorite piece of furniture that you own. For me, it’s my living room couch. It is so comfy and I spend most of my time at home on it watching TV, reading books, or visiting with friends. If you’re planning to move, have you considered how you would move not only you favorite piece of furniture, but all of your furniture? It’s something to think about! I’ve got some good information to help you compare the leading furniture moving companies in terms of affordability.

A comparison of affordable furniture moving companies


You can do as little or as much work as you want to move your furniture depending on your moving budget. Some people prefer a hands-off approach, and who can blame them? Furniture comes in all shapes and sizes and can be tough to move. But oftentimes, the hands-off approach isn’t worth the big chunk of money it requires or the time it takes to deliver the furniture (4-6 weeks). So many people find a “you pack, we drive” moving company to be ideal because they can spend less money, they don’t have to drive, and they can get their furniture sooner rather than later.

U-Pack® is one of those “you pack, we drive” moving companies. Compared to full-service, U-Pack often costs less because you do the packing, loading, and unloading yourself. If you decide to take advantage of U-Pack’s access to a nationwide network of loading and unloading help, your move will still typically cost less than a full-service move. And with average transit times of 2-5 business days, you can move fast with U-Pack, too.

The one thing I just have to mention though is how U-Pack charges. It’s not by weight or by truck size – it’s by space! You only pay for the amount of space you actually use. It’s a genius idea that’s really catching on. This space estimator tool can help you determine how much space you’ll use inside one of U-Pack’s moving trailers or moving containers. By paying for how much space you use, you can control the price of your move based on how you pack and load your furniture. The less space you take up, the less you pay!

Compared to truck rental, U-Pack offers similar or cheaper rates in most cases. U-Pack also includes fuel, taxes, and liability coverage in your quote. Truck rental doesn’t.

A “you pack, we drive” moving company like U-Pack combines the best of both worlds. You can get a fast, affordable move without driving a rental truck. And that’s good news for moving your furniture affordably.
