Top 5 Ways U-Pack offers cheap moving

As a DIY-moving service, U-Pack offers the best of both worlds. You do the loading and unloading, and we do the driving. It’s a much more convenient option than going with a cheap rental truck, and it’s sometimes even more affordable — especially when you add fuel, taxes and liability coverage to the rental truck price. Keep reading to learn how U-Pack can help you save when you have a tight moving budget. 

1. Efficient shipping network

U-Pack’s primary transportation provider, ABF Freight®, has an efficient transportation network that enables us to offer affordable rates for long-distance moves. Load your belongings into an empty moving trailer, then install a secure divider wall. The remaining space is filled with commercial goods traveling in the same direction. Or load things into a ReloCube moving container, and we’ll place it inside a moving trailer for transport. Either way, your belongings are not unloaded or mixed with commercial goods, and we can cut transportation costs, passing the savings along to you. This is especially beneficial for cross-country moves.

2. Pay only for the space you use   

With U-Pack, your price is based on the space your belongings take up in a trailer or the number of ReloCube containers you use — and you’re only charged for the space you use, regardless of what you reserve. If you need more or less space in the trailer, we’ll adjust your price according to the per-foot rate listed on your reservation (down to a minimum of 5 linear feet). And if you order too many Cubes, we’ll pick up the empty ones at no cost.

3. Low-cost moving options for household goods 

U-Pack is an excellent way to ship your belongings, especially bulky items. And, since we don’t charge based on the weight of your shipment (only the amount of space used in the equipment), it’s easier to know your moving costs ahead of time. If you have just a few boxes to ship, it makes sense to ship with the U.S. Postal Service® or a parcel shipper like UPS® or FedEx®, but when you need to move all your things and ship furniture out of state, U-Pack is a great choice. 

4. No surprises or hidden fees 

U-Pack prices include the equipment, transportation, delivery, fuel and standard liability coverage. Plus, you don’t have to worry about added taxes or hidden fees. It’s all included in the price, so you know beforehand what your moving price will be.  

5. Discounts on already low prices

While we offer everyday competitive prices, there are ways you can save even more money when moving with U-Pack. Try loading and/or unloading at a local service center to save hundreds of dollars. It’s a little more work, but for some, it’s a great option for a cheap move. You can also use one of our moving coupons for a discount. If your dates are flexible, call 844-362-5303844-594-3077 to speak to a moving consultant — we can help you find the cheapest time days and time of year to move.
