Important Things to Know About U-Pack Trailer Moves

Moving trailers may look a little different than the equipment you’re used to seeing, but they’re very easy to use. Here’s what you need to know:

The Process is Simple

Trailer moves work like this:

  • We deliver an empty moving trailer to your home
  • You have up to three business days to load
  • We pick up the trailer and move it to your new home
  • You have up to three business days to unload

They Hold More Than The Largest Rental Truck

The loading space in a U-Pack trailer is equal in size to a 26-foot and a 10-foot rental truck combined (with some space still left over). But you don’t have to use it all! Just use the space you need (down to a 5-foot minimum).

Learn more about trailer size and see the parking requirements for U-Pack trailers.

You Can Control Your Price While Loading

If you decide last-minute to leave things behind, can load everything in less space, or need to add items to your shipment, there’s no need to call. Payment isn't due until after the moving trailer is loaded, so you can adjust the space as you go. Just add or subtract the per-foot adjustment rate included in your trailer quote to see how it changes your price.

Note: We measure trailer space in linear feet, which is simple to keep track of while loading. Learn about linear footage here.

Storage is Available if You Need More Time

Not ready to unload at the new house? Add storage to your trailer move and keep everything right in the equipment! This is a convenient option for anyone who needs a little more time to get settled. Pricing is based on 30-day periods for each trailer you store.

Trailer FAQs

How Can I Secure My Belongings?

Most U-Pack trailers are equipped with logistics tracking that runs from floor to ceiling. These tie-down points allow you to secure your shipment with ropes and ratchet straps as you load. You can request a trailer with logistics tracking from the origin service center, though availability is not guaranteed. For more support, you can nail blocks and braces to the trailer floor throughout the loading process.

What if I Don’t Use the Entire Trailer?

The trailer comes to you empty, equipped with a secure divider wall (called a bulkhead) that you’ll install when you’re finished loading. This wall is designed to separate your shipment from palletized, boxed, or crated commercial goods that are moving in the same direction as your belongings. U-Pack moves one household goods shipment per trailer. This means your belongings are not transferred, unloaded, or combined with other household shipments during the move. Learn how to install the bulkhead here.
