Trailer Storage

Adding a Storage Trailer to Your Long-Distance Move

Some people may need a little extra time during their move. Whether you need a month to close on a new house or several months to find a place to live, U-Pack® can help. Pair our easy, affordable moving service with storage in the trailer.

Benefits of Using Trailer Storage

U-Pack storage saves you the hassle and hard work of moving in and out of a traditional storage unit. Instead of loading and unloading many times, you can store right in the trailer for as long as you need.

Here’s how it works: You load your belongings inside the equipment. We’ll transport and store it at one of our secure service centers at origin, at destination, or while in transit. The items will stay inside the equipment until you’re ready for them. When you’re ready, just give us a call, and we’ll deliver them!

Unsure of what you need? Our moving consultants can help you figure out the best option based on the specifics of your move.

FAQs about U-Pack Storage Trailers

Do you have questions about storing in a trailer as part of your move? We’re here to help. Here’s a list of some of the most frequently asked questions:

How does pricing work?

Storage trailer pricing is based on the number of trailers you store. Storage starts once your shipment arrives at the service center where it’s stored, and it’s billed every 30 days from there. Note that storage pricing is not pro-rated.

How do I cancel my storage reservation?

If you added storage to your move, but end up not needing it, we make it easy to remove from your reservation. Simply call 877-453-7274, or email moving@upack.com before the trailer goes into storage to let us know.

What can I store in the trailer?

While most things like clothing, furniture and appliances are safe for transit, some things can’t be moved or stored in a trailer. Before your move, be sure to check out the Do Not Ship list, so you can dispose of these items or pack them separately from your U-Pack shipment.

Will it be climate-controlled?

U-Pack trailers are not climate controlled, so you may consider bringing any heat-sensitive items with you rather than packing into the trailer.

Will my things be co-mingled with someone else’s?

You’ll be pleased to know that your belongings are never co-mingled or transferred. 

What’s the liability coverage while my shipment is in storage?

U-Pack offers basic liability coverage while the shipment is in transit and while it’s being stored. Learn more about our liability coverage here.

Can I put my own lock on the trailer while it is in storage?

U-Pack customers may use their own lock on the shipment divider wall (bulkhead) inside the trailer, but the trailer doors will be secured with our lock while it’s traveling and in storage.

Do I have access to a trailer while it is in storage?

Once your shipment is in storage, you will not have access to it until it’s delivered to your final destination. We recommend taking any important documents, valuables or other items you’ll need right away with you. 

What do I do when I’m ready for delivery?

It’s easy! Just call your local service center to schedule a delivery appointment.
