Do moving companies handle small moves?

Small Move Options

You may have heard that some moving companies aren’t equipped to handle small moves (or you’ll pay dearly for it). You’ll be pleased to know that U-Pack Moving isn’t among those companies; whether you’re moving a studio-size apartment or a four-bedroom home, we can handle it. In fact, U-Pack’s flexible “pay for the space you use” concept was designed with the small move in mind.

The U-Pack Small Move Solution

The minimum for a U-Pack move is 5 linear feet in a moving trailer or one ReloCube. Comparatively, that’s typically the equivalent of a studio-size apartment or one room of furnishings.

The ReloCube is a small, weatherproof portable moving and storage container that sits flat on the ground. It measures 6’x7’x8’ (lwh) and fits perfectly into a standard-size parking space. If you’re moving more than one room, you can reserve as many Cubes as you think you'll use, then just pay for those you end up using.

If you prefer a little more flexibility, the moving trailer is a great option. As I mentioned before, the minimum is five linear feet. If you need more space, it’s always available. We’ll provide a per-foot-adjustment rate in your quote – just add it to your five-foot price to see your cost for using more space. So easy.

More Ways to Save
Though U-Pack specializes in door-to-door moves, if you're moving only a rooms worth of items, a terminal-to-terminal move may be a good money-saving option. You can load your belongings into the trailer or ReloCube at the service center closest to your origin location, then pick them up at the service center closest to your destination location. In most locations a terminal to terminal move is at least a $300 savings.
