Tips from the Hawaii Moving specialists
Well, you can’t drive a rental truck to Hawaii (a little something called the Pacific Ocean is in the way). That leaves two other options: “you pack, we drive” companies like U-Pack®, and full-service movers. Both take care of the transportation, but they definitely vary in other ways –specifically price. Let’s take a look at how you can move to Hawaii, stay within your budget, and get your belongings there fast – with U-Pack Moving.

I’m thinking about renting a moving truck, but I’m not sure how much they cost.
You have lots of options for your upcoming long-distance move, including renting a moving truck. For local moves, moving trucks are usually easy on the wallet. But you can’t always say the same for long-distance moves. When you start adding on additional costs like fuel, damage coverage and sales tax, the price starts going up; sometimes even doubling your quoted price.

Moving Out of State?
Moving down the street is much different from moving out of state. Not just in terms of distance, but also all the prep work! When moving to a new state, you’re changing school districts, doctors, banks, churches, gyms, usually changing your job, and sometimes even changing cultures. It has the potential to be a difficult transition.
Your to-do list can become overwhelming, so let me break it down. Here are the six areas not to overlook when moving out of state: kids, pets, car, paperwork, and household goods.

What are you looking for in an out-of-state moving company?
Outside of truck rental, you basically have two options when it comes to moving out of state: full-service or “you pack, we drive” companies.
So, can you guess what customers tell us matters most when it comes to selecting the company they’ll go with?
You guessed it. PRICE.

The Ultimate Relocation Checklist
Since you’re here, I’m guessing you’re a checklist person like me. I totally get it. Without checklists, I’m utterly disorganized and overwhelmed. You may laugh, but if you were to look at my iPhone right now, you’d find six apps that are “to-do” list related. (It’s seriously time to narrow it down).
As you know, there aren’t many things in life more stressful than a long-distance relocation. You’ve got a lot of choices to make and a lot of things to do before packing up your life, putting it on a truck, and moving it across the country. That’s a big deal.
