How to move quickly

June 28th, 2012 - 3:42 PM

I remember as a little kid getting on my older brother’s back and pretending that he was a horse. I would “spur” him with my bare feet to make him go faster and faster. I would even yell “faster, faster!” as his knees took a beating to the floor. Then when he was done being my pretend horse, he would buck me off gently and I’d go bug the other big brother for a ride.

When you move traditionally and say “faster, faster!” it’s your belongings that may take a beating. But it doesn't have to be that way. When you move with U-Pack and say “faster, faster!” that’s just what you get!

What are the best moving companies for long-distance?

June 28th, 2012 - 3:37 PM

Moving long-distance is very different from moving down the street. You’ve likely already discovered that it requires a lot of planning: for delivery at your origin and destination, the logistics involved with getting your belongings to you in a timely manner, the requirements of each state you’re traveling to (not to mention the authority to transport your belongings across state lines). That’s why it’s so important to look to moving companies that specialize in long-distance moving.

How to Find Moving Companies

June 25th, 2012 - 4:35 PM

The search for a good moving company doesn’t have to be like the search for Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster. Good moving companies do exist; you just have to know where to look.  Finding them is all about knowing what type of service you need, how the services compare and how to check credibility.

What type of service you need.
There are different types of moving services depending on how much work you want to do and your moving budget: full service movers, truck rental, portable storage, and “you pack, we drive” services. Before you can find a moving company, you’ll need to know which type of service you’re looking for, and how they compare.

One-Way Moves: Getting the Lowest Price

June 20th, 2012 - 3:57 PM

I think the term “one-way moving” is funny. I mean, one-way flights might be rare, but I imagine that most moves are one-way.  I mean honestly, who packs up their whole house to move it across the country then turns right around and moves it back? Is there round-trip moving in comparison? (If that has happened to you, my heart goes out to you). Despite all that, because of the truck rental industry, people are familiar with the phrase “one-way moving,” as one-way truck rental is a popular option. If you’re looking at one-way moves and want to find the lowest prices, I have GREAT news for you!

How Much Does It Cost to Move a Four-Bedroom House?

June 8th, 2012 - 9:53 AM

My parents have lived in the same four-bedroom house for almost 20 years. Besides all the furnishings, they have accumulated plenty of stuff. They’re planning to retire and move soon, but they’ll have to move all of that stuff. (I have to admit, I’m kind of glad it’s them and not me). Since I work for a moving service, my mom has asked this question more than once: “How much does it cost to move a four-bedroom house?”  If you’re in the same situation, and asking the same question, my answer to you is exactly the same as the answer I gave her: Get a moving quote!

June 4th, 2012 - 2:42 PM

If you’re like a majority of the people who move, you may think that using a rental truck is the easiest and cheapest moving option available. That could be the case if you’re moving in-town, or even in-state. But when you’re moving long distance, you may want to do a little more research. Here are a few things to consider when you’re looking at truck rental prices:
