Do you need door-to-door storage and moving?​

For easy, affordable door-to-door moving in all 50 states (including Alaska and Hawaii), Puerto Rico and Canada – look no further than U-Pack! Shipping your belongings doesn’t have to come with a hefty price tag. Take a look at some of our most common questions about door-to-door moving and storage.

How does door to door moving work?

While our service may vary from other moving companies, U-Pack specializes in simple, hassle-free moving. Our service works like this: We deliver a moving trailer or ReloCube right to your door. You load it up; then we deliver it to the door at your new home. Or, if you’re not ready for delivery, door-to-door storage is available for as long as you need it.

How much does moving door to door cost?

Since every move is different, the easiest way to get a price is to get a quote online. Just give us some details about your move (where you’re moving to/from, how much you’re moving, when you want to move), and then get an instant quote. Or if you prefer to talk with someone, we have helpful moving consultants available by phone at 800-413-4799.

Where is U-Pack service available?

While many moving companies aren’t able to provide service across the country, U-Pack offers door-to-door service to over 90% of the United States. Once you make your reservation, the equipment and driver are guaranteed for your moving day. No deposit is required to reserve your move!

What type of parking do I need?

Since we’re dropping equipment off at your home, you’ll want to make sure you have safe and legal parking. Sometimes that involves just making sure adequate space is available, but sometimes that means getting parking permits. If you're parking your moving trailer or Cube on your own private property, a permit may not be required. However, if you live in an apartment complex, rent, have a homeowners association or will park the equipment on a city street, you definitely want to check on parking regulations. In most locations you can get this information from the city, police department, landlord or your HOA. Don't forget to make parking arrangements at both the origin and destination!

How much time do I have to load and unload?

You can have up to three business days to load your stuff – so take your time. When you're finished loading, just contact your local terminal to arrange to have the equipment picked up. After pickup, your container or trailer gets moving.  We move the equipment to the local service center at destination. Then you simply call to arrange a delivery appointment; we’ll deliver it right to your door at your new home when you’re ready. You have three business days to unload and empty the trailer or ReloCube. Again, when you’re finished unloading, just call your local terminal for pick-up.

What if I need door-to-door storage?

We have several flexible options for storage in conjunction with a move. You get door delivery where you load your belongings into the moving equipment, then choose the storage that works best for you:

  • Storage at origin. This is a great choice if you aren’t totally sure where you’re moving to. Once we pick up your door-to-door container, we’ll store it for as long as you need at the nearest service center.  When you’re ready, we’ll ship it across the country and deliver it to your new home.
  • Storage at destination. With this option, your belongings go straight from your home to the service center nearest your destination. We can store it for as long as you need, and when you’re ready for delivery, just call and schedule it!

We work hard to make sure the entire door-to-door moving and storage process is as simple as possible. It’s so much easier to store your belongings in the moving equipment than to load and unload it multiple times into a storage unit. Check your moving quote for storage rates and availability in your area.
