Who offers cheap moving services?

June 24th, 2013 - 2:06 PM

I’m looking for a cheap way to move long distance…have any suggestions?


Sure do! Lots of people looking to move across the country cheap go for a do-it-yourself moving service. By rolling up your sleeves and doing some of the work yourself, you can generally save BIG on your move. So who offers these cheap moving services?

U-Pack® does!

In case you’re not familiar, U-Pack is an innovative DIY moving service where you do the loading/unloading, but not the driving.

A closer look at how U-Pack offers such cheap moving services

Like I mentioned, with U-Pack, you do the packing, loading, and unloading just like you would if you rented a truck and drove it yourself. But instead of driving the moving truck, an experienced driver takes care of that. You get to make the trip in your own vehicle.  

Awesome, right?

But that’s not all that’s awesome… In many cases, U-Pack’s prices are actually similar to or cheaper than renting a truck. Just think about how much you’ll spend on fuel, taxes, insurance, hotel stays and food if you drive a rental truck. It can certainly add up.    

U-Pack uses efficient transportation suppliers, like ABF Freight System, to move your belongings from point A to point B – and the savings is passed directly to you. You don’t have to pay extra for things like fuel, sales tax, standard liability coverage or the driver. Your price is based on how much space you use inside a moving trailer, or how many ReloCubes you use. It’s very simple.  

U-Pack arranges the delivery, transportation and pick-up of the moving equipment for you, so all you have to do is get your belongings ready to go, load them, and unload at the destination.  And there’s no rush – you get three business days to load and unload, so take your time. Take a look at your quote to see your estimated transit time – on average you can expect it to take around 2-5 business days.

And speaking of quote... it’s super easy to get one online. Just enter where you’re moving, when you’re moving, and how much you’re moving, and you’ll be able to see the price instantly. It’s such a great option for folks searching for cheap moving services!

If you’re looking for more ways to save, be sure to ask about off-peak moving days (days when prices are lower), how you can save by using less space, or how you can save by loading and/or unloading at the local service center. There are some great options available to help build a move that fits your needs and budget.
