Moving from state to state the affordable way

August 24th, 2012 - 10:28 AM


It's Flashback Friday! Today we'll look back at a post from a few months back that talks about how to move from state to state the affordable way. If saving money on your move is important to you, this is a good post to read. Happy Friday!  

By definition, the word “affordable” means inexpensive, reasonably priced, or within one’s financial means. With that being said, do you associate the word “affordable” with the moving industry? Affordable moving depends on who you choose to move with. Let’s take a look at the affordable, and not so affordable, options for moving from state to state!

Do-it-yourself: This option is rumored to be the cheapest way to move because you do all the work moving from state to state yourself. You pick up the rental truck, load it, drive it, unload it, and return the truck.  What if I told you there was a moving option comparable in truck rental price, but you could eliminate the part about driving it yourself and picking up/dropping off the moving equipment yourself?

Full-service: This option is not that affordable. Actually, I would probably label this option as the exact opposite. You’ll pay big bucks to have a company pack, load, move, and unload your belongings. But even with all the money you’ll spend, your belongings could be transferred or co-mingled with others’ belongings. Not to mention it could take 4-6 weeks for your belongings to arrive.

U-Pack Moving: This option is revolutionizing the moving industry! You load and unload your belongings, but WE do the driving! We even deliver the moving trailer or moving container to your home to be loaded and unloaded. With cross-country transit times averaging 2 to 5 business days, it’s faster than full-service, and your belongings are never co-mingled or transferred.  U-Pack is affordable. In fact, 78% of U-Pack customers chose to move with U-Pack because of the price!

Do-it-yourself with loading and unloading help: So if full-service sounds wonderful but you don’t like the co-mingling, the long transit time, or the high price tag, then simply add moving assistance to your U-Pack move. You can add packing, loading, and/or unloading help on either or both ends of your move. It’s usually cheaper than a traditional full-service mover, too!

5 things U-Pack customers LOVE

  1. They only pay for the space they use, never weight!
  2. They never pay a down payment or deposit!
  3. They get special offers from the U-Pack box store!
  4. They get $25 off their move just for reading this blog post (use coupon code BLOG11)!
  5. Their free moving quote includes the driver, sales tax, liability coverage, highway tolls, AND fuel.
