Moving to Another State on Quick Notice

January 23rd, 2012 - 2:20 PM

In an ideal world, if we were moving to another state we would know exactly when and where we’re moving at least 6-8 weeks before the big day.  Early on we would start researching moving companies, getting quotes, scheduling the move, gathering packing supplies and packing up rooms one-by-one.  Ahhh…sounds simple, doesn’t it? 

But we know that doesn’t always happen.  It’s not unusual to get one (or five) calls a day from customers in a pickle: They’ve just been told their job will require moving to another state, and they’ll need to report there in one week; the truck they’ve already reserved with a moving company is no longer available, and now they need to find another company to move them; someone made an offer on their house—great news—but now they have to be out in three weeks.   

Yikes!  Most traditional moving companies require 4 to 6 weeks notice.  And, panic ensues. 

But it doesn’t have to.

U-Pack is a great solution; known for being flexible and doing what it takes to get the job done.
