New Blog Offers Expert Moving Advice at a Click

Fort Smith, Arkansas (January 14, 2008) —

Getting advice from a professional Moving Coordinator is just a click away. U-Pack Moving®, a national moving service provider, launched a blog designed to help the 40 million Americans who relocate each year. The blog, called “Moving Survival Guide,” features advice, information, visuals, tips, answers and more.

Twelve professional Moving Coordinators, all U-Pack Moving employees, will regularly contribute their knowledge. They will answer questions, respond to comments and share their years of experience. Visitors to blog.upack.com can communicate with the experts and learn about a variety of moving related topics. Users can view “How To” videos and other detailed instructions on topics such as packing to protect belongings. Specific questions are answered in the “Ask the Expert” section. Visitors can read posts on frequently asked questions, such as: loading properly, parking issues, legal moving guidelines, offshore moves, hiring moving labor and avoiding moving scams. Blog entries range from the serious to the humorous and examine the many complications that can arise in a move. “Blogs provide access to a real person who can answer questions and provide valuable information. This improves the moving experience, which is a priority at U-Pack Moving,” says Kay Lynn Clay, manager of business development. According to comScore, a national Internet research company, over 50 million U.S. Internet users visited blog sites in the first quarter of 2005. That is roughly 30% of all U.S. Internet users and one in six of the total U.S. population.

U-Pack® is a service of ABF Freight System, Inc.®, an award-winning transporter of general commodities. In 1997, ABF® began offering its shipping services directly to consumers via U-Pack Moving. In doing so, the carrier introduced an alternative means of moving residential and business belongings cross country. U-Pack combines the professional driver and equipment of a traditional full-service mover with the cost savings of a rental truck.
