U-Pack ReloCube Parking Requirements

Planning for ReloCube Parking

The U-Pack® ReloCube® makes moving easy — especially in areas where parking space is limited. Because it fits into a standard parking space, the Cube is perfect for loading and unloading at most residential addresses, storage units, apartment complexes and college campuses. But before we deliver the containers, there are a few parking details you’ll need to confirm.

Parking Requirements for U-Pack Moving Containers

Here’s what you’ll need to park a ReloCube:

  • A standard parking space for each Cube (6’ x 7’ x 8’)
  • 40 feet of space during drop-off and pickup (for the trailer to maneuver)
  • 14 feet of overhead clearance free of low-hanging tree limbs and electrical wires
  • A paved, level location (containers cannot be parked on soft ground or grass)
  • Permission for overnight parking (containers may be parked for up to three business days)

Note: Check with the city or police department to see if a parking permit is required for moving container parking in your area, and get one if needed. You should also contact your apartment complex, storage facility or homeowner’s association to make sure overnight parking is allowed.

Other Parking Information

Along with the parking space requirements, it’s important to know that we require someone 18 years or older to be present at drop-off to sign for the equipment and show our driver where to place the Cubes. No one needs to be present at pickup; just make sure the Cube is accessible. For pickup at your destination after unloading, check that the Cubes are empty and remove any locks.

Frequently Asked Questions about ReloCube Parking

What if I can’t park the equipment for three days?

In many cases, we can return to pick up the equipment the following business day. If you’re unable to leave the ReloCubes parked overnight, let us know! You may be able to load or unload at a service center or use another pickup option.

What if I don’t have 40 feet of space for drop-off and pickup?

We can often park on a nearby side street and bring the Cubes to your door with a forklift. You’ll still need 14 feet of overhead clearance for the forklift and space to place the Cubes, but 40 feet of space isn’t always needed.  

What if I don’t have paved parking?

While concrete or asphalt are ideal surfaces, hard-packed gravel can work in most cases; just let us know when reserving. If you don’t have a place to park the Cubes, we may be able to place them on the street. Just talk with the city or local police department to get any necessary parking permits.
