I love using online reviews, and I have a feeling I’m not alone. What people have to say about products and services I’m planning on purchasing has a huge impact on my decision to take the plunge. If we’re traveling, I always look up reviews for hotels and restaurants in the area. If I decide to get a haircut at a new salon, I never walk in the door without searching for reviews – who wants to walk out with a horrendous style.

Did you know that every time a moving shipment is handled after the initial loading, the chances of loss or damage increase by more than 80%! This statistic means that if you are looking for moving and storage, you will want to find an option where you don’t have to move your items over and over again.

If you’ve been trying to answer the question, “How much does moving cost?” with a straight-forward answer, you’ll end up frustrated every time, simply because the real answer is, it all depends. It would be difficult, impossible even, to find someone who is moving the same belongings, on the same day, from and to the same place you’re moving. Your move is truly one-of-a-kind, so the price of your move is going to be one-of-a-kind as well. Here’s what your moving cost depends on:

I remember as a little kid getting on my older brother’s back and pretending that he was a horse. I would “spur” him with my bare feet to make him go faster and faster. I would even yell “faster, faster!” as his knees took a beating to the floor. Then when he was done being my pretend horse, he would buck me off gently and I’d go bug the other big brother for a ride.
When you move traditionally and say “faster, faster!” it’s your belongings that may take a beating. But it doesn't have to be that way. When you move with U-Pack and say “faster, faster!” that’s just what you get!

Moving long-distance is very different from moving down the street. You’ve likely already discovered that it requires a lot of planning: for delivery at your origin and destination, the logistics involved with getting your belongings to you in a timely manner, the requirements of each state you’re traveling to (not to mention the authority to transport your belongings across state lines). That’s why it’s so important to look to moving companies that specialize in long-distance moving.

The search for a good moving company doesn’t have to be like the search for Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster. Good moving companies do exist; you just have to know where to look. Finding them is all about knowing what type of service you need, how the services compare and how to check credibility.
What type of service you need.
There are different types of moving services depending on how much work you want to do and your moving budget: full service movers, truck rental, portable storage, and “you pack, we drive” services. Before you can find a moving company, you’ll need to know which type of service you’re looking for, and how they compare.

I think the term “one-way moving” is funny. I mean, one-way flights might be rare, but I imagine that most moves are one-way. I mean honestly, who packs up their whole house to move it across the country then turns right around and moves it back? Is there round-trip moving in comparison? (If that has happened to you, my heart goes out to you). Despite all that, because of the truck rental industry, people are familiar with the phrase “one-way moving,” as one-way truck rental is a popular option. If you’re looking at one-way moves and want to find the lowest prices, I have GREAT news for you!
