If you’re searching for a moving service called ABS Moving, ABS Trucking or UBF, you may actually be looking for ABF – or more specifically, U-Pack Moving. See, ABF Freight℠ is the primary transportation provider for U-Pack®, so the truck you'll see when you to a U-Pack self-move is almost always an ABF Freight trailer. And that sometimes leads customers to refer to the service as ABF Moving... and admittedly, we sometimes hear people call us ABS Moving, ABS Trucking, and even UBF. It's completely understandable, especially when you consider that people don't move across the country all that often.
