Looking for U-Haul coupons? Find out to save money on your move!
If you’re trying to track down a U-Haul coupon, you’re probably looking to save on your move. I don’t blame you – moving can be expensive! While U-Haul coupons can take a small portion off your rental cost, it’s important to remember the total cost of using a U-Haul. There are extra costs you may not consider when deciding on a moving company. These extra costs like fuel, meals, hotel stays, and road tolls are all expenses that can take a chunk out of your moving budget, especially the cost of fuel. What if there was a way to move on budget without using a U-Haul coupon?

How to Move a Pack Rat
Picture this: a cluttered garage, a closet stuffed to the brim, and a kitchen too messy to eat in. That’s what a pack rat’s world looks like. What’s a pack rat? Simply put, it’s someone who collects or keeps things that aren’t needed. There’s a little pack rat in all of us, but if you or someone you know is a true pack rat, then you (or they) may be wondering how to handle an upcoming move. Moving is tough no matter what, but when you have too much stuff it just complicates things even more.
Moving a pack rat doesn’t have to be stressful – with our help you can prepare for the move while moving easily and affordably.

Did you just get PCS orders?
If so, it’s important to understand the benefits you qualify for before you start planning your move. Military relocation benefits change frequently due to regulations, rank, or your family size. One of the first questions you may ask after visiting with your Transportation Office (TO) is “How much does a military move cost?” While it's an important question, it's actually fairly complex, as there are moving costs, additional costs, and benefits that all combine to determine the cost of your military move.
