We post an awful lot about ways to avoid moving stress, but thankfully moving offers a few enjoyable things as well. One of the most exciting: getting to start over with a fresh palette you get to decorate your new home exactly the way you like it!
Today we would like to introduce you to Kuhl Kreations: DIY Home Décor Designs, created by one of U-Packs very own.

Would we have had the luxury of visiting the Grand Canyon if we had been driving one of the big trucks ourselves? Um, absolutely not as I could never drive a truck large enough to hold my grandmother’s 86 years of belongings on that skinny of highway! But, since we were free to roam about, we headed up to one of the country’s most beautiful parks.
According to last years moving trends report, the average U-Pack shipment is around 13 linear feet, which translates into a 1,200 sq. ft., two-bedroom home. Despite that fact, we also encounter many, many customers who just need to move a few items a small move.

One of the downsides to moving is that it disrupts your routine. Youre planning your moving schedule, making a moving checklist, packing, and focusing on the move. Its hard to make time for normal mealtimes, exercise and other daily activities. If youre someone who benefits from a regular workout, you may find it gets dropped from your plans. But guess what? You can get some terrific exercise from the activities involved in moving.
U-Pack's small moving container – The ReloCube – is the perfect solution when you're not moving much, or there's no room for a big moving truck at your location. It's 6' x 7' x 8' (lwh) and sits flat on the ground for easy loading and unloading. Just pack it up, lock it, and keep your key. We'll deliver it right to your door, and come get it when you're ready (you get up to three business days to load and unload, or you can store it as long as you need).
If you’re anything like me, only half of the things on your to-do list get done during the day. Sometimes I’m up late trying to get things done that should’ve been completed hours earlier. When you’re planning a move, I can guarantee that your to-do list is going to grow like a middle school rumor.
You’re getting quotes for everything from renting a moving truck to full-service options and self-service options like U-Pack. You’re thinking about moving supplies, travel dates and times, setting up and turning off utilities, enrolling in a new school, buying and selling a home. There’s just so much to do!
