Budget Rental Trucks vs. U-Pack Moving

November 27th, 2012 - 10:35 AM

If you’re moving long distance and searching for an economical yet easy way to move across the country, Budget Rental Trucks vs. U-Pack is a great comparison. It’s good to note at the get-go that while Budget and U-Pack prices are comparable (for long-distance moves), the services do differ. Budget is a “do-it-yourself” service—you pick it up, load it, drive it, unload it, and return it. U-Pack is a “you pack, we drive” service—U-Pack delivers it, you load it, U-Pack drives it, you unload it, U-Pack picks it up.

How Much Does it Cost to Move a 2-Bedroom Apartment Cross Country

November 26th, 2012 - 2:05 PM

How Much Are You Moving?

The square footage of 2-bedroom apartments can vary drastically across the nation; we’ve seen them as small as 700 square feet and as large as 1,500 square feet. When you consider the extreme difference, it probably makes sense that it's difficult to say exactly how much it would cost to move a 2-bedroom apartment... that is, until we know how much you're moving and where you're moving to.  

It's a good idea to start with a space estimator to help determine how much space you need. Once you know the size, figuring your final price is much easier.
