Moving Cross Country Cheap

September 14th, 2012 - 3:02 PM

Since we’re all about saving money these days, let’s do another Flashback Friday and take a look at some tips Brittney has for moving cross country cheap.

Searching for ways to move cross country cheap? Well, you are in the right place! I’m the queen of cheap! If there a discount or coupon to be found, I will hunt it down. So let’s get to the cheap cross country moving.

Tip #1: You can save big by doing some of the work yourself. However, you don’t have to do it all! For example, using a “you pack, we drive” service, you can do the work of packing and loading (and unloading), but let the company drive for you.

In this blog post, you’ll see why more customers prefer U-Pack over Penske® for moving long distance.

Moving Concept. U-Pack’s moving concept is a win-win—you do the loading and unloading, but you don’t have to do the long distance driving (the worst part of moving in my opinion).

I need door-to-door delivery. How does that work?

September 12th, 2012 - 11:26 AM

You ask, U-Pack answers: “I need door-to-door delivery – how does that work?”

Last year, over 97% of U-Pack’s shipments were delivered right to our customers’ doors. That means we delivered a moving trailer or moving container to both their origin and destination locations.

If we are able to service your area door-to-door through one of almost 300 service centers throughout the U.S. (and likely we can), here’s how it works:
