What did we do before smart phones? Some days it is hard to remember a world without all these gadgets and tools. I mean, I can check the weather, shop for my outfit, schedule my oil change, and listen to the radio all from my phone. Well, guess what? Your smart phone can help with your move, too!

Despite the fact that U-Haul is obviously different from U-Pack (you get a professional driver with U-Pack, you do the driving with U-Haul), customers still often compare the two when they’re moving long distance. And it’s all because of one BIG similarity—PRICE. U-Pack rates are comparable to truck rental—even though you don’t have to drive. I’ve compiled some frequently asked questions and helpful links about U-Haul below. Check them out, then compare to U-Pack!

Let’s celebrate the beginning of Fall with another Flashback Friday. Today, we’re looking back on a post by Christina about how you exactly go about moving from one state to another. Happy Friday!

Since you’re moving, one of the tasks you’ll have to complete is a change of address through the US Postal Service. While doing this means your mail will be forwarded for a period of time, it’s good to know that there are some things that the postal service will not forward, even with a change of address. In general, Express Mail, Priority mail, first-class mail, magazines and newspapers will be forwarded. The things that won’t be forwarded are the following:

Are you moving? Find out who needs your new address
If you’re in the process of moving, you already know that changing your address is just one of the many things on your moving “to do” list (for a full list, check out U-Pack's comprehensive Moving Checklist). You can begin this process by going to your local post office to complete a change of address form. If a trip to your postal service isn’t an option, you can also print a copy of the form at usps.com and mail it in, or complete it online for a small fee. With a USPS change of address, your mail will be forwarded for a while so you’ll have time to notify everyone of your new address.

I recently read a post by a man who wanted to know the cost to move to Alaska, but didn’t want to spend the time comparing moving companies for the best price. Thanks to the convenience of the internet today, you can quickly get moving quotes online from different Alaska moving companies. Get started with a free moving quote from U-Pack. Within 24 hours, it will tell you the cost of your move to Alaska.
The best part about U-Pack is that you don’t have to drive, or pay out of pocket for fuel because it’s included in your quote! Compare your U-Pack quote to other moving options.
