The "You Pack, They Drive" Service

I think everyone knows what a full-service mover and a rental truck is and how they work - common knowledge for most. But, there's a fairly new moving phenomenon out there called a "You Pack, They Drive" service (which happens to be what ABF U-Pack Moving is).

More than Moving

When I talk to customers on the phone, one of the challenges is "listening between the lines". We help figure out what you need to do and how U-Pack can make that happen.

Some customers just need a moving quote from City A to City B in different states. Those calls are the most straight forward, although I do hear some funny stories at times- like a caller with an exotic bird that "doesn't fly and it doesn't fly" (don't feel bad, it took me about 15 seconds to catch up with what she meant, too). She wanted to use U-Pack so she could drive herself and her pet in the comfort of her own car.

It's a Packing Party!

The decisions that cause people to move usually involve family matters or career changes. While this can be an exciting time, it can also be hard to leave your friends behind. But you're too busy to have a going away party, right?  Between sorting, packing, and cleaning your schedule is booked solid.

"What the heck is a linear foot"?

This question (worded one way or another) is probably asked by U-Pack customers more than any other question. However, even when I answer that it is one foot of length by eight feet wide by nine feet tall I still get "Huh?". I think that a mental picture is worth a thousand words of explanation.
