When I was a kid, I used to love going to garage sales with my mom. I experienced thrill after thrill of finding books, clothes, and jewelry for cheap prices. If you’re moving, I think you’ll find that other people will be seeking the same type of thrill with YOUR stuff! Having a garage sale is great way to downsize and get rid of things you don’t want to pay to move. These helpful garage sale pricing strategies were designed to help you have a super successful garage sale!

Since U-Pack does all of the driving, many of our customers end up taking a little road trip while their goods are traveling across the country via ABF (how awesome that you can travel in your own vehicle instead of driving a rental truck).

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.

For today's Flashback Friday, we're taking another look at Christina's post about how to move. Studies show that moving is one of the most stressful events you'll experience in your life. The information Christina provides was designed to make it a little more manageable. Happy Friday!
Nearly 40 million Americans move each year, and soon you’ll be joining that statistic! Make your move stress-free by learning exactly how to move and begin the moving the process.

You ask, U-Pack answers! “I need storage and delivery. Is that possible with U-Pack?”
I once had an elementary teacher who called her students “unique snowflakes.” A little unusual? Yes. True? Yes. And you could say the exact same thing about moves. They’re all unique... just like a snowflake.

Whether you’re new to moving or you’ve got some moves under your belt, you’ve probably heard that truck rental is the best way to move. If you’re moving locally, yes. If you’re moving long distance, not quite.
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).

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. While there are a few remote areas, and a few zip codes in Chicago where we’re unable to provide door-to-door delivery, U-Pack is known for offering a broad service area and reliable service. 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:
