May is National Moving Month

Celebrate with a moving coupon!

What better time to move than when the sun is shining and the kids are out of school? It’s National Moving Month, and that means it’s time to kick off the busiest season of the year for moving!

Did you know that somewhere around 37 million people will move this year? 37 million people… that’s a lot of moving trucks! Of that 37 million, most of the moves actually take place in May, June, July, and August—which is why you’ll often hear this time of year referred to as “peak moving season.” That's certainly what we’ve experienced at U-Pack!  Last year 43.5% of our customers moved during those months.

Moving Truck Average Costs

Every move is different. There really is no “average” cost of a moving truck. Moving truck rentals can cost anywhere from $20 to $3,000+. The rates depend on what type of moving truck you need and how far you are moving, among other things. Think about it: You can’t compare someone who is moving across the street and using the moving truck for one day to someone moving across the country and driving the truck for a week. Besides your location and truck size, what else goes into your average truck rental costs? Let’s take a look.
