Miki Markovich of Ground, Path, and Fruition used U-Pack for her personal move a few years back and had a great experience. So when it came time for Miki to help move her 86-year-old grandmother more than 2,200 miles across the United States, Miki knew U-Pack was the moving company she would trust once more. Here's the awesome part: because U-Pack does the driving, Miki and her grandmother Regina were able to take the road trip of a lifetime without worrying about their household goods.

If youre like me, the idea of packing up a house feels overwhelming (especially one youve lived in for a long time). It undoubtedly means sifting through some drawers, cabinets and closets that you havent dealt with in a while.
Not so appealing.
Of course, you could just choose a moving service with packing and loading help and let an experienced crew come in and do everything for youget it all packed up and worry about what you need and dont need once you get moved into your new home. Thats definitely the easy way, but probably not a great approach if youre also trying to save a little money.

In an ideal world, if we were moving to another state we would know exactly when and where were moving at least 6-8 weeks before the big day. Early on we would start researching moving companies, getting quotes, scheduling the move, gathering packing supplies and packing up rooms one-by-one. Ahhh
sounds simple, doesnt it?

Moving cubes, what a great idea! Thats exactly what U-Pack thought when we designed the ReloCube®, a 6 x 7 x 8 portable moving and storage container that sits flat on the ground.

If you reserve a moving trailer, equipment similar to this will be delivered to your door.
This is a nice, clean, empty ABF Freight℠ tractor and trailer. ABF Freight is the primary transportation provider for U-pack.

What's the hardest thing about moving across the country? Besides figuring out how to keep your plants alive and remembering where you packed the bottle opener (keep it in your purse you'll thank me later).
Some might say that packing sends them into a frenzy, or maybe it's figuring out the logistics apartment hunting from 2,000 miles away is kind of a pain. But for me, the hardest part is always the first step: getting quotes from movers.

I have officially been living in Chicago for two weeks. A few U-Pack boxes still decorate my apartment, but for the most part I'm settled and adjusting to the winter weather. I've reconnected with a lot of family and friends and had a chance to fill them in on my road trip out here. The drive out to California was a bit of a whirlwind - we drove straight through without stopping - but this time we made sure to stop. The convenience of not traveling with a truck-load of stuff provided me and my mom with the freedom to take the scenic route and stop whenever (and wherever) our hearts desired.
