Cubes for shipping household goods

It’s true. They’re the most convenient way to ship household goods—ground-level loading, easy to park, strategically placed tie-down points, you get to use your own lock—you get the idea. Let’s take a look at the ReloCube®, U-Pack’s shipping cube, and see how it’s used to move items all across the country.

How much do U-Pack shipping cubes cost?
This is normally the first thing people ask, so I’ll address it first thing. Prices vary based on where you’re moving from and to, how many Cubes you use, and when you’re moving. The easiest way to determine price is to get an online moving quote. There’s no obligation, and you’ll see the price instantly.

Your price is based on the number of ReloCubes you actually use—not how many you reserve. So, if you think you need three shipping cubes, but you fit everything into two, you only pay for two.

How big are U-Pack shipping cubes?
The ReloCube is 6’ x 7’ x 8’ externally, and has a weight limit of 2,500 lbs. (that’s how much weight you can load into it). That normally translates into holding the contents of a studio-size apartment. You can see the internal dimensions here and the parking requirements here.

Can I store in U-Pack shipping cubes?
Yes! They’re ideal for storage. Read more about storing your belongings in a ReloCube here.

How long does it take to move my shipping cube?
U-Pack transit times average 2-5 business days. Your U-Pack quote will show the estimated transit time for your specific move.

How does U-Pack deliver shipping cubes?
ReloCubes are delivered to your location via flatbed trailer or drop-deck trailer. You can see more about how this works on the ReloCube Size page at upack.com.

Are there alternatives to shipping cubes for larger shipments?
Yes! U-Pack also offers moving and storage in a moving trailer. With this option, the price is based on the linear footage your shipment occupies inside the trailer. It’s a great alternative for larger shipments or shipments where flexibility in size is necessary.
