November Holidays You Should Be Celebrating

We love the month of November! The weather gets cooler, the leaves start changing colors, and football is back in full-force. But what we love most about November are the holidays. There’s so much to celebrate! Take a look at our complete list of November holidays, then decide how you’ll make the most of each day.

Federal November Holidays

November 11 – Veterans Day

Thanksgiving – the fourth Thursday in November

If you’re moving with U-Pack over Thanksgiving, keep in mind that the U-Pack customer service center will be closed November 28-December 1. Because most terminals are also closed during this time (or are operating with minimal staff), it may cause a delay in estimated transit times. To make sure your belongings arrive on the day you need, we recommend opting for Guaranteed Service. Contact your moving consultant for more information, or give us a call at 800-413-4799.
