One benefit customer's love about U-Pack is the ability to easily track their shipment 24/7 while it's in transit. There seems to be so much more peace of mind in knowing where your belongings are and when they're expected to arrive at your new home— especially if you've selected the money-saving estimated transit option. Though you may not have a specific day it has to arrive, it stands to reason that it's at least helpful to know what to expect as it's traveling.
I've been helping customers move with U-Pack for 6 years, and I can verify that moving is one of those life events that's different for everyone. That's why it's important to choose a moving company that offers moving options to fit your situation— keep the stress to an absolute minimum!
Oregon is a state that has it all— the western coastline, beautiful mountains, and thriving cities. If you're moving to Oregon, you have lots to look forward to! Since we know you'll want to fit right in with the locals, U-Pack has gathered a few little-known facts about Oregon to help you out.
A Tornado Picture for the Books!
Severe weather can strike anywhere, anytime. That's why we wanted to share this tornado picture from the September 8th storms, sent in courtesy of employees at the ABF service center in Dallas, TX. It's very frightening when severe weather hits, and we're happy to report that our Dallas employees weren't harmed.
The term 'Texas tornado' has been used for everything from song titles to team names, but we think this tornado picture shows the true meaning of the term— don't you think?
First, most of our trucks only have one seat. Seriously. The trucks are called 'Day Cabs' which means they are only meant to be driven for the day. Our drivers only drive the maximum amount of time allowed by law and these trucks have no sleeper compartment.
Many years ago (before U-Pack) my husband, my young daughter, and I made a move. We were young and financially challenged and I was VERY pregnant. We couldnt afford a full service mover and really we didnt have enough stuff to justify a full service mover. Normally, when we were moving across town, we just borrowed someones truck and made several trips.
