Today while I was looking around on the web, I ran across a question someone who is moving from Nevada to Wisconsin posted on a website. I think questioning the best way to move is a legitimate concern, so it prompted me to write this post about alternatives to one way truck rental. Here's what I read:

It's that time of year again
tax season! If you moved in 2009, you may be eligible for a moving expenses tax deduction. We've written some helpful blog posts in the past that should be helpful again this year – including instructions for retrieving the cost to move from your U-Pack delivery receipt.

If you're searching for Arizona relocation information, I recommend that you start with the basics
at the Chamber of Commerce. You'll find that most chambers offer Arizona Relocation Packets that provide a little extra information about the area and sometimes even discount offers. What a deal! For a list of Arizona chambers, visit this website.

When a customer requests a price quote for moving out of Alaska to the lower 48, the conversation usually ends with the same question, "When do I need to make my reservation?"

Just to clear up some confusion, the portable storage containers U-Pack offers for moving and storage are called ReloCubes® – the containers that PODS® provides are called, well... PODS® containers. While they share some similarities (i.e. container is delivered to your home, you load, container is delivered to your new home, you unload – and storage is available) there are definitely some differences in the U-Pack service and PODS®.

Always looking for a deal
It seems like everyone is looking for the cheapest moving truck rentals these days. And why wouldn't they? Penny pinching is what's "cool" right now. I would wager a bet that if you picked up a magazine from a news stand today, you would find a helpful article titled something like: "Ways to save", "Top 10 things you can do to cut back", or "20 painless money-saving tips".

Here's what you should know about the ReloCube when you compare portable moving and storage containers:
