Verify Dates and Timing

Knowing the exact dates your move will take place (loading, transit, and unloading) is something that may not seem an important detail initially, but it could be!

Is the date the truck will arrive for loading a guaranteed date?
Check for wording on your contract that might indicate that it could be brought to you on a date other than the date you expect it to arrive.

How long will the truck be left at your house for loading?
You want plenty of time to complete your loading, but knowing it will be picked up in a timely manner once loading is complete is important as well.

It's a Packing Party!

The decisions that cause people to move usually involve family matters or career changes. While this can be an exciting time, it can also be hard to leave your friends behind. But you're too busy to have a going away party, right?  Between sorting, packing, and cleaning your schedule is booked solid.

"What the heck is a linear foot"?

This question (worded one way or another) is probably asked by U-Pack customers more than any other question. However, even when I answer that it is one foot of length by eight feet wide by nine feet tall I still get "Huh?". I think that a mental picture is worth a thousand words of explanation.
