The Best Way to Ship Household Goods

Shipping household goods

Moving to a new home out of state is an exciting experience, but it can also be overwhelming to sort through all the options for shipping your belongings. Some shipping methods can be expensive, especially if weight is considered, while other options may not be safest for fragile items. Luckily, there’s a company like U-Pack®. We’ve been in the long-distance moving business since 1997 and are here to help you move your belongings affordably and safely.

3 reasons U-Pack is the best option for shipping household items

U-Pack is a DIY moving solution where you handle packing, loading and unloading (or you can hire help for these tasks), and then we take care of the driving. We service all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico. Here are some reasons why we’re the best option for shipping household goods: 

1. Affordable prices 

With U-Pack, pricing is easy and affordable. Unlike parcel service or full-service movers, U-Pack costs are based on how much space your things take up in the moving equipment rather than the weight of your belongings. If you need more or less space, it’s available, and your price will be adjusted accordingly. 

2. Flexible shipping options 

U-Pack offers flexible options for long-distance moves with space in a 28-foot moving trailer or ReloCube® moving containers.  

3. Fast and safe shipping 

With transit times averaging 4-6 business days, you’ll get your things faster than other options. And with U-Pack, your items stay safe in the equipment right where you load them, secured behind your own lock.

U-Pack can handle military HHG shipping 

You can make a Personally Procured Move with U-Pack — whether you’re off- or on-base. The process works the same for military shipments as regular household goods moving, and we can provide empty and full weight tickets if they’re requested at reservation.
