You pack it with U-Pack

If you’re looking for a long-distance moving service where you do the packing in return for lower prices, I’d like to introduce you to U-Pack Moving®, a “you pack, we drive” moving service that does just that. Let’s take a look at what makes U-Pack such a great option for people hoping to save money on their move by doing a little of the work on their own.

How does a “you pack it” service work?

Just like the name implies, you pack your own belongings, but instead of driving yourself, like you would with truck rental, U-Pack does the driving for you. Now that’s the way to do a “you pack” move!

Here’s how a typical door-to-door move with U-Pack works:

  • U-Pack delivers a trailer or moving container direct to your home.
  • You do the packing and loading of your belongings.
  • U-Pack drives your belongings to your new home.
  • You do the unloading and unpacking of your belongings.
  • U-Pack picks up the empty moving equipment when you’re done unloading.

As you can see above, U-Pack makes it easy and convenient to move long distance. All you do is pack, load, unload, and unpack. You don’t have to pick up the moving equipment or return it when you’re done since U-Pack brings it to you. Plus, you get three business days to do your loading and unloading – that’s a lot of time to make sure everything is packed up and ready to go.

How much does a “you pack” move cost?

You’ll be happy to know that U-Pack’s rates are very similar to truck rental. In fact, when you add all the extra costs of truck rental (fuel, taxes, tolls, damage protection), the cost will typically be about the same as moving with U-Pack. Except with U-Pack, you don’t have to drive. What a great deal!

Another perk of U-Pack is that you only pay for the amount of space you use, not which truck size you choose. U-Pack customers really enjoy being able to control the price of their move based on how much space they use. Perhaps that’s why 78% of U-Pack customers chose U-Pack based on price alone.
