What’s the best way to move cross country?

When you ask a question like, “What’s the best way to move cross country?” are you looking for a process that's easy, the lowest price, a dependable service? I'll go out on a limb and guess that most people prefer a combination of the three—a dependable service that offers a convenient process at an affordable price. 

That’s exactly what you get with U-Pack—the affordability of a self-move, without the stress of driving a rental truck across the country.

How do I start planning my move?

Planning a move across the country starts with getting quotes – it’s how you know exactly how much to budget. U-Pack® is an easy, affordable option for getting your belongings all the way across the country, and we make getting an online quote – and adjusting it later if you need to – really, really easy. Of course, if you’d rather speak to someone directly (and experience great customer service), you can also call 800-413-4799.  

We only need to know three basic things to calculate your cross-country moving quote:

  • Where you’re moving to/from
  • How much you’re moving
  • Approximately when you’re moving

If you need a little help getting a quote, or understanding it, check out this video...

Car seats and moving trucks. How does that work?

Moving long distance can be hard to do, especially if you have an infant or small child who rides in a car seat. If you’re considering truck rental because of the low price, you should be aware that some companies are OK with you putting a child in their trucks, while others are not. You might even be a little uneasy about putting your child in a moving truck yourself.

Moving Company Prices

The price you’ll pay to move varies based on the type of moving service you choose, how much you’re moving and when you’re moving. On average, full-service movers are the pricier option – which makes sense when you consider that you’re paying for both labor and transportation. “You pack, we drive” services normally offer lower moving costs, and in return you do some of the work (the packing and loading).

How to Move a Motorcycle

Moving a motorcycle long distance requires some prep work. You'll need to find a moving company that's equipped to move bikes, get the supplies you'll need to get it ready to load, and prepare it for moving.

U-Pack® is a great solution for moving a motorcycle, especially if you're moving household goods too. We make it easy to load, easy to secure, and you don't have to drive the moving truck!

Compare Pack-Rat® Moving and U-Pack®

As you do research to prepare to move, you may want to see how U-Pack Moving stacks up against other moving companies. While price is always important, it’s also important to know how companies compare when it comes to service and moving options (like storage) and equipment. When you know what each company does, you can better choose the one to fit your moving and storage needs. Today we’ll cover U-Pack vs. Pack-Rat. Here’s how they compare in terms of things like service, cost, container specs and service area.

Is your PODS® rate too high?

(Post updated 10/27/14)

If you’ve seen a PODS® container around town, you may have thought they look like a convenient way to move—much better than driving a huge rental truck across the country (because who wants to do the driving). They fit perfectly into a driveway or in front of a house, and they sit close to the ground, so moving things in and out seems super easy. But then you request a quote and see the price…

If you’re moving long distance and your PODS® rate is higher than your budget allows, check out U-Pack!  

It’s a similar "you pack, we drive-type" service, where a container is dropped at your home, you load it, and we pick it up and drive it to your new home, but the price often compares to truck rental.
