I'm Moving By Myself. What's the Best Way?

February 17th, 2013 - 2:18 PM

You asked: “I’m Moving By Myself. What’s the Best Way?”

When you move by yourself you face some interesting challenges: How will you load up all of your stuff? Can you drive the rental truck alone? If you’re asking yourself, “What’s the best way to move by myself,” There’s a solution I think will help.

U-Pack. It’s a self-move “you pack, we drive” service that’s perfect for people who don’t have family or friends available to help them move.

So you might be wondering how in the world a “you pack, we drive” service could be a good option for someone moving alone – especially if you have large furniture and/or appliances that you can’t lift by yourself.  

Here’s how U-Pack can help: We have access to a nationwide network of moving labor to help load and unload on one or both ends of your move. If you just need help with the big stuff, you can hire two movers for a minimum of two hours, or if you need help loading everything, you can add more time – all at a rate that’s typically much lower than full-service movers. 

And then there’s driving. Many people who are moving by themselves don’t like the thought of driving an unfamiliar rental truck alone. And what if you have a car? How do you get it to your new home? Driving by yourself in a rental truck while you’re towing a vehicle doesn’t sound like much fun, does it?

When you move with U-Pack, an experienced driver moves your belongings across the country and delivers right to your door. You can make the drive in your own personal vehicle. I think that sounds like a MUCH better idea.
