Let's do one more Flashback (since it's a holiday weekend and all)! If you're planning a move during the Fall or Winter months (the time of year when you'll typically find the lowest prices for moving), this post about how to get moving quotes should be very helpful. Have a safe, enjoyable Labor Day!!

It's Flashback Friday! Today we're looking back at a post from several months ago that focuses on the ReloCube – U-Pack's portable storage container. If your move is relatively small, or you have parking issues, this is a great post to check out. Happy Friday!
I know we talk a lot about how great U-Pack Moving is, but sometimes you want to hear what others have to say about the service. So, I spent a lot of time looking at surveys, online reviews, blogs, and photo/video sites to find real, honest feedback about U-Pack’s ReloCube.

Honest to goodness, I had family who, years and years ago, moved from California to Arkansas in a covered wagon (I’ve heard the stories more than once). Can you imagine?
One thing about it... I bet it was cheap.

Many people think affordable moving is just too far beyond reach to grasp. Not true! Check out these tips for affordable moving from place to place:
To truly see what’s out there in terms of price for moving services, it's best to start getting moving quotes. They will tell you not only the price of your move, but also what's is included in your move. For example, a U-Pack free moving quote includes the fuel, professional driver, taxes, liability coverage and highway tolls. You'll also see the estimated transit time.

If you're thinking about packing and moving, then you're probably not just playing games. Maybe you should be though. You also might think about one game in particular: Tetris.

Anytime you do something yourself, you can usually count on saving money. For instance, when we moved into our new home, we did all the painting ourselves, and you guessed it, we saved tons by not hiring a professional painter. Instead of hiring a landscaper, my husband mows our lawn and weeds the flowerbeds – another big money saver. Moving is no different. If you can do at least some of the work yourself, you’ll definitely save money – sometimes a significant amount. Let’s take a look at exactly how much you can save by doing a self-move and taking on some of the work yourself.
