Do you need help with moving?

Full service isn’t the only option for moving help

If you’re moving long distance and don’t want to do all the work, what options do you have? You could hire a full service mover, but that can get expensive. Or you could hire movers from online message boards, but how can you make sure they can be trusted? It’s easy to get overwhelmed and even easier to blow your budget. U-Pack offers a solution that involves combining U-Pack with moving help to give you the services you need at a price you can afford.

What to pack first when moving

What should I pack first?

Mark Twain once said, “If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.” What great advice for those planning a move across the country! When you’re dealing with an overwhelming task like packing up your house – where you know you have to do it, but you don’t know where to start – why not tackle the “big frog” first? You’ll be glad you did.
