A Question About One Way Truck Rental

March 8th, 2010 - 10:54 AM

Today while I was looking around on the web, I ran across a question someone who is moving from Nevada to Wisconsin posted on a website. I think questioning the best way to move is a legitimate concern, so it prompted me to write this post about alternatives to one way truck rental. Here's what I read:

If you're searching for Arizona relocation information, I recommend that you start with the basics…at the Chamber of Commerce. You'll find that most chambers offer Arizona Relocation Packets that provide a little extra information about the area and sometimes even discount offers. What a deal!  For a list of Arizona chambers, visit this website.

U-Pack has ReloCubes®, not PODS®

October 28th, 2009 - 11:00 AM

Just to clear up some confusion, the portable storage containers U-Pack offers for moving and storage are called ReloCubes® – the containers that PODS® provides are called, well... PODS® containers. While they share some similarities (i.e. container is delivered to your home, you load, container is delivered to your new home, you unload – and storage is available) there are definitely some differences in the U-Pack service and PODS®.

Cheapest Moving Truck Rentals

October 13th, 2009 - 10:16 AM

Always looking for a deal
It seems like everyone is looking for the cheapest moving truck rentals these days.  And why wouldn't they? Penny pinching is what's "cool" right now. I would wager a bet that if you picked up a magazine from a news stand today, you would find a helpful article titled something like: "Ways to save", "Top 10 things you can do to cut back", or "20 painless money-saving tips".

Compare Portable Storage

October 7th, 2009 - 4:31 PM

Gone are the days where your storage options were limited to packing everything and moving it into your relative's garage or into a rental truck to unload in the storage facility across town. Now there's portable storage. So much easier *sigh*. Now you just load and unload it once – and your relatives don't have to look at it in their garage.

If you're just starting to compare portable storage containers, consider the U-Pack ReloCube. By the way, it's pronounced Relo (like the first part of 'relocation') and Cube (like a box). Clever…I know.

Here's what you should know about the ReloCube when you compare portable moving and storage containers:

Moving Companies - Choosing the right one

August 31st, 2009 - 1:34 PM

Working for a moving service makes me overly conscious of what questions should be asked when choosing moving companies. It's kind of like how mechanics know what to look for when your car doesn't run and how realtors know what to do to sell your house quickly – when it's what you do, it's what you know.

So, I try to put myself in the shoes of the person who has never moved before - just to consider all the questions that surface when choosing moving companies.

Here's the beginning of my list of questions people ask (and my answers)…feel free to add more!
