National Coverage

National coverage means faster transit times and easier cross-country moves. U-Pack has over 240 terminals spread throughout the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico that service over 44,000 communities. Direct service is available to more than 98 percent of U.S. cities with populations exceeding 30,000. We use the closest service centers and fastest routes to get our customers the best transit times (on average 2-5 business days).

How U-Pack works

U-Pack is a “you pack, we drive” moving service designed to help customers lower long distance moving costs by doing some of the work themselves. Here’s how our service works:

  • We deliver an empty trailer or ReloCube® to your location
  • You load the equipment (within three business days)
  • We pick up the equipment and deliver it to your new location
  • You unload the equipment

We base our prices on how much linear footage you use in the trailer or how many Cubes you fill.  By only paying for the space used, you control the price of the move. You can use our space estimator tool to determine how much space you’ll need.

Moving out of New Jersey

Six terminals service New Jersey for anyone moving out of state. These service centers are in the following cities:

Enter your zip code under “city search” on the U-Pack coverage page to see which terminal is closest to your location. By default, our system reserves a trailer or container at the closest terminal that has available equipment.

Storage options​

If you need storage when doing a self-move, you'll need to unload your items from the truck into a separate storage unit (and load another truck when you're ready to take your belongings to your new home). With a full-service mover, the movers will unload everything into a unit. This can be a problem since every time a shipment is handled after initial loading, the chance of loss or damage can increase by 80 percent! 

Because of these factors, it makes sense to choose a moving company with storage solutions that don't require unloading. Here’s how U-Pack storage works:

  • A trailer or Cube is delivered to your home
  • You load it
  • We pick it up and store it at a secure terminal until you’re ready for it
  • When you’re ready, we deliver the equipment to your new location
  • You unload

Your belongings never leave the trailer or Cube. It’s a convenient and affordable alternative to other moving companies in New Jersey that offer storage. 

Other reasons to choose U-Pack as your New Jersey mover

National recognition. We have a strong history and a proven record. Our network of ABF Freight℠ trucks are dependable and have received nationally recognized awards:

  • Only six-time winner of the American Trucking Association’s (ATA) President’s Award for Safety
  • Only five-time winner of the ATA Excellence in Security Award
  • Only six-time winner of the Excellence in Claims and Loss Prevention Award

Reliable transit times. As we mentioned above, our estimated transit times are 2-5 business days and are up to 300% faster than other national moving companies. We also offer guaranteed moves for customers needing their items delivered on an exact date.

Professional drivers. Drivers who have CDL certification handle our shipments and the average tenure of our line haul drivers is more than 20 years. Rest easy knowing your belongings are in good hands.

Great customer care. Moving across the country is a life-changing event. Our U-Pack moving experts provide friendly and helpful customer service throughout the whole process.

Low cost. Since you only pay for the space you use, you control the price! If you use less, pay less. And unlike many self-moves where the cost of insurance, fuel and tolls are separate from the overall price, all U-Pack quotes include the driver, fuel, sales tax, road tolls, liability coverage and estimated transit time. There are no hidden fees or charges when moving with U-Pack.

No co-mingling. A lot of moving companies commingle household shipments. This means your items will travel with another family’s belongings. When moving companies transport multiple shipments, there can be a greater risk of loss and mixture. U-Pack doesn’t co-mingle household goods.  

Help loading or unloading. If you need New Jersey movers who load and unload, U-Pack can still help! We refer our customers to Moving Staffers for loading and unloading assistance. Even with adding these separate services, our costs can be lower than full-service movers.
