Hello! My name is Becky Harris, and I am a moving expert. I know, I know... not necessarily something to brag about. But if you need help moving, this knowledge comes in rather handy. After more than ten years with U-Pack Moving and seven years writing for the U-Pack Moving Blog, I've acquired some major moving know-how. If you'd like to connect with me, follow me on Twitter @beckydharris.
I thoroughly researched my move from New York York Florida...or at least I thought I did! I scouted out my new apartment on a trip to Florida in August, set the date for my move six weeks later, researched the size and cost of a moving pod with Uhaul and U~Pack, and decided U~Pack was the most economic way to go. I came home and sold my furniture and excess personal belongings with the understanding that everything I wanted to take with me had to fit in a 7x7x7 Pod. I made enough money fro... See Morem on-line and physical yard sales to facilitate the move! September 27th was confirmed as the move date and Sept 24th would be the date U~Pack came would drop off my pod.
Imaging my surprise when a semi with ABF Freight on the side came pulling up to the front door to drop off a 28 foot trailer! I told the driver there must've been some mistake and asked if the pod was inside the trailer. This patient sweetheart of a driver explained that my bill of lading indicated that I'd contracted for 7 feet of space in a 28 foot trailer instead of a ReloCube, (a term I'd never even encountered when setting up the move!) and I had 3 days to load it. To make a long story short, the heavens opened up and smiled on me. I was able to get the keys to my apartment on Friday September 29 (instead of Oct 14 as originally planned) and my trailer came promptly on Monday, October 2nd! A little mix up occurred with the address which I'd changed just before leaving NY, but no biggie...within 1/2 hour a lovely "Jersey Boy" as he called himself, delivered all my worldly goods to my new front door! Thank you U~Pack!🤗 I would definitely recommend your company to anyone making a long distance move
I really liked this service. Was reasonably priced. The trick is to know how to pack your goods so the arrive safely. I hired two packers from a local moving company to load the trailer. And everything arrived intact. And they were totally accommodating to my needs. Have and will recommend them to anyone who is moving. Thanks Upack!!!
The first time I've ever moved and the first time I ever used a shipping company. They were cheaper than driving a U-Haul with exceptional professionalism in explaining everything, as well as answering my questions. I spoke to several people in the office and everyone was knowledgeable which is so reassuring when my stuff is away from me for days at a time. They did everything EARLIER than expected, and when a hiccup occured, they corrected without hesitation. Definitely using them when I move back.
