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.

Our Third Move With U-Pack

Hey all, This is Justin and Cassity, we write a blog called Remodelaholic and we are excited to tell you about our move with ABF U-Pack. This is our third move with U-pack and we have been happy every time!

We were most recently living in Texas away from any family, when an opportunity to move back home came along we decided to take the chance and move. Because we have a young family, the thought of driving a big huge commercial vehicle half way across the country certainly didn’t sound appealing. Luckily, we have had great luck moving in with ABF in the past so we thought we would work with them again.

We moved on rather short notice, so I was a little behind on packing boxes. But we were on a deadline so we got started early. That way both my husband and I could be working inside and out at the same time.

Are there websites with reviews on moving companies?

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. Since moving scams are very common and I would hate to hand over all of my belongings and things I worked hard for, just to have a shady mover take advantage of me, it makes sense that I would also look for websites with reviews on moving companies BEFORE I move.

If you’re also a fan of online reviews, here is a helpful list for websites with reviews on moving companies.

Dawn's Family Move: a U-Pack Moving Experience

There are a few posts on the U-Pack blog that offer tips to make family moving a little easier— how to travel with pets, books about moving for the kids, etc.  While we hope those topics are helpful, we think it would be even better if our readers could see a real family move in action.

That's where Dawn Meehan of the "Because I Said So" blog comes in: Dawn and her smiling brood were relocating from Illinois to Florida and needed a reliable moving company to help streamline the process. U-Pack was more than happy to help Dawn get her family moving the 1,200+ miles to their new home in exchange for a video blog that would show others what it's really like to coordinate a move!

Check out the clip below to see how Dawn's family move went, then leave a comment to tell us what you think!

Finding quality movers

Finding Quality Movers
While there are many quality movers across the country, there are also several 'scammers 'who prey on unsuspecting customers. In order to avoid a moving scam, it's important to do a little research on your movers prior to making a reservation.

When trying to find quality movers, make sure to consider the following:

  • Is the company in question a 'broker'? Brokers are middlemen that will contract a move on your behalf— tacking on an unnecessary (and usually pretty hefty) fee for their services. Because they often operate from a makeshift office or even on the fly, brokers have little to no control over your possessions or who they're being moved by. To avoid a sketchy moving experience, be sure to ask who will actually be rendering the moving services, as well as who is ultimately responsible for your shipment.

Give Moving Companies a Rating

Remember the days when you chose a service based exclusively on brand name and price? Not the case anymore, is it? Now, it's much more about the consumer, and much less about the company. It's nice that every customer has a voice and a forum to use it. That's the way it should be.

Moving Companies – Rating Sites
If you aren't using consumer review sites, you should consider it – both as a research tool and to share your experiences. Since you're visiting this blog, you're probably looking for the best moving companies – and in addition to the research you're doing here, looking at sites where you can give moving companies a rating is also a great idea. I suggest epinions.com and movingscam.com.
