In honor of President's Day 2013, I thought it would be fun to see which cities in the U.S. each U.S. president is from, where they moved (before moving to Washington, D.C., of course), and if they moved after their presidency. Let's take a look!
George Washington was born in present-day Colonial Beach, VA. He moved to New York City (then the nation's capital) to serve as president. He owned land on Mount Vernon, where he eventually retired and passed way. He selected the site for the White House in 1791. Unfortunately, Washington passed away before it was built eight years later.
John Adams was born in Quincy, MA. He went to college in Harvard in ... Read More
You asked: “I’m Moving By Myself. What’s the Best Way?”
When you move by yourself you face some interesting challenges: How will you load up all of your stuff? Can you drive the rental truck alone? If you’re asking yourself, “What’s the best way to move by myself,” There’s a solution I think will help.
U-Pack. It’s a self-move “you pack, we drive” service that’s perfect for people who don’t have family or friends available to help them move.
So you might be wondering how in the world a “you pack, we drive” service could be a good option for someone moving alone – especially if you have large furnitu... Read More
Growing up, our school district would let kids out of school for 2-3 inches of snow. Seriously! If you live in states like Alaska, Colorado, New York, Michigan, Ohio, or any other state that gets tremendous amounts of snow, you’re probably rolling on the floor laughing. Okay, so 2-3 inches was a big deal for me, but if you’ve had enough of the large amounts of snow accumulating where you live, you just might be looking to move to a place where a chance of snow will never be in the forecast!
More and more people are committing to weight loss for their New Year’s resolution in 2013. Instead of joining a gym next year as your motivation to lose weight, it may be time for you to make a call to U-Pack to move to one of these top 5 cities that are made up of healthy individuals. You can find this article about where to move to stay skinny here. Here is a summary from the article:
The top 5 cities to stay skinny include:

With Halloween just around the corner, there’s not a better time to explore which cities in America are the most haunted. Below you’ll find the 10 most haunted cities in the United States. Read only if you dare…
St. Augustine, FL. Castillo de San Marcos, a star-shaped fort rebuilt in 1672, is known to be haunted because of a love triangle between Colonel Garcia Martis, his wife Delores, and his chief officer Captain Manuel Abela. Colonel Martis found out about the affair when he smelled his wife’s perfume on Captain Abela. Suddenly, both Delores and the Captain disappeared and everyone assumed Delores went back to Mexico and the Captain reassigned to Spain. Years later, ashes and bones that were believed to be those of Delores and the Captain were disco... Read More

I want to feel alive again
I want to be in love again
I have a confession. I’m a Pinterest addict. I love “pinning” stuff, including awesome quotes. I’ve noticed that a lot of the quotes I’ve pinned lately revolve around moving on, letting go, and moving forward. Today I’m inspired to share some of my favorite Pinterest-found moving on quotes—I hope they inspire you in return—whatever you’re moving on from. Like many things on the Internet, many of these quotes lack attribution, so please forgive for not knowing who first said many of them. Regardless, they’re wonderful, share-worthy moving on quotes.
My Favorite Moving on Quotes
The best revenge is just moving on and getting over it. Don’t give someone the satisfaction of watching you suffer.

What did we do before smart phones? Some days it is hard to remember a world without all these gadgets and tools. I mean, I can check the weather, shop for my outfit, schedule my oil change, and listen to the radio all from my phone. Well, guess what? Your smart phone can help with your move, too!
With the latest announcement of the iPhone 5 we wanted to join the smart phone hype and give you some apps that might be helpful during your move. But for starters, have you seen the new iPhone 5? Four inch retina display, faster chip, 8MP camera… the techie folks in the U-Pack group are drooling. These apps will work on any of your smart phones, but man, they would look great on that big, new screen!
The sad part of moving is moving on from the things, places, and people you love. We have compiled some “moving on” quotes and sayings. Maybe you print out this list and post it to encourage you as you move on. Or memorize one for your own personal mantra. Whatever it is that you are moving on from, these quotes and sayings should help encourage you.
Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving. – Albert Einstein
We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the life that is waiting for us. – Joseph Campbell

Throw a theme party What’s more fun than a theme party? Choose something that corresponds to their new city, or their new job – Are they moving to Texas? Have a BBQ and invite everyone to wear western duds. Moving to the East Cost? Maybe a crab boil is in order. Or, have a “Hometown Favorites” theme and bring in the local foods they love. Then invite guests to wear shirts from local high schools, sports teams, restaurants and the like. Another super-cute theme that works for moving or changing jobs is &l... Read More

We’ve caught it and there is no cure. We will go through terrible withdrawals when it is over. “It” is Olympic fever! Here at U-Pack our water cooler talk is all about the Olympics. We know quite a bit about different places in the US, mostly because we have moved some of our 500,000 customers just about everywhere at some point…so we naturally wanted to know where these talented athletes train. Let’s take a look.
Famous coaches Marta and Bela Karolyi host the team at the National Team Training Center at Karolyi Ranch in Huntsville, TX, just 60 miles from Houston.
Here at U-Pack, we are all about hometowns. We know that after a move, life starts in your new hometown. So we were curious about the hometowns of the 2012 United States Olympic Athletes. Now, there are well over 500 athletes from the US, so we can’t cover them all. But we did cover some of the familiar names you know and love! And in U-Pack fashion, we have thrown in some moving info and fun facts to the mix! Enjoy!

Who doesn’t love a great party? I know I do! And what better time to throw one than when you’re moving into a new home? It’s a great time to let all your friends and family see your place – and it’s also an excellent excuse to speed up the process of getting boxes unpacked and everything put away. Here are some great tips and fun ideas for throwing a super-cool “we’ve moved to a new home” party!
Choose a date and time that’s convenient for the majority of your guests.
You can usually do that by avoiding holiday weekends when many people already have plans. If the majority of your friends and family work during the week and have weekends off, the weekend would be a great time for a party – maybe a Saturday morning brunch, a Saturday after... Read More
Who doesn’t love a great moving song – especially when you’re actually moving (or moving on, in some cases)? We’ve compiled an awesome list of songs that are guaranteed to move you, and some that will simply help you move on.
Are you moving to start a new job? Start a new life? Follow a dream? Let’s celebrate! Saying your goodbyes doesn’t have to be sad. Throw a going away party and have some fun before you move. I’m a firm believer that music makes the party. Whether you need music for that going away party, or just want to play some tunes as you pack, these songs will set the mood for a happy goodbye.
These are just great songs for a crowd that will really get people in the groove. Some are great sing-a-longs, some are group dances, but they will all get a “I love this song!” response from your friends!
It’s Flashback Friday! Each week, U-Pack revisits a blog post that has proved helpful (or fun) for our readers. This week’s post – Moving On Quotes. It’s a fan favorite! What better way to say goodbye than with an emotion-provoking quote. We hope you find some you like. Happy Friday!
While moving on isn’t always a bad thing, I’m sure you’ll agree that change is rarely easy (if it were, poets, authors, and musicians probably wouldn’t have so much inspiring material, right?). In the moving business, most of the people we speak with are moving due to a life-changing event – sometimes the circumstance are great, and sometimes they’re not so happy.
Considering the number of people who fin... Read More
Saying goodbye can be extremely difficult, especially if the thing you’re saying goodbye to is the home you love dearly. After all, home is where the majority of our fondest memories are made. If you’re in the process of moving to a new home, and having a hard time letting go of the old, here are some great ideas to help you say goodbye and still hold on to the memories:
Take lots of pictures – inside and out. Think about the special places that you might want to tell stories about – like walls with children’s measurements and places where you have special memories – and take pictures of those places. My mother just recently moved out of my childhood home, and before I drove down the driveway for the last time, I took pictures of the tree in the front yard tha... Read More
We mentioned a fun Military Appreciation-related contest coming up soon, and the time has arrived! Yesterday we launched the Military Appreciation Photo Contest on U-Pack’s Facebook page!

Want to know how to find the best places to eat in your new city?
Moving to a new city is so exciting! Though you may miss some of your favorite restaurants back home, now you’ll get to find new ones, and trying them out is the best part. (As long as they’re good, right?)
Thank goodness for technology and iPhone apps! Now there are great resources for finding out what the best places to eat are ahead of time. Here are some great resources:
Urbanspoon. This is my favorite. I’ve got the iPhone app, and I use it often. Just enter your location and check out the great places in your area – read reviews, check out menus etc. When we’re up for anything, I use the “slot machine” feature and just let it pick for me.
What's the hardest thing about moving across the country? Besides figuring out how to keep your plants alive and remembering where you packed the bottle opener (keep it in your purse – you'll thank me later).
Some might say that packing sends them into a frenzy, or maybe it's figuring out the logistics – apartment hunting from 2,000 miles away is kind of a pain. But for me, the hardest part is always the first step: getting quotes from movers.
In-home estimates kind of make me nervous (partly because I watch too much Lifetime) but mostly because I'm not sure what the protocol is. Should I clean up first? I feel that the estimator will get a better sense of my kitchen if the dishes are piled up in the sink rather than tucked away inside cabinets.
I found that the best way is just to call the company directly. I thought I could save time with an o... Read More
I have officially been living in Chicago for two weeks. A few U-Pack boxes still decorate my apartment, but for the most part I'm settled and adjusting to the winter weather. I've reconnected with a lot of family and friends and had a chance to fill them in on my road trip out here. The drive out to California was a bit of a whirlwind - we drove straight through without stopping - but this time we made sure to stop. The convenience of not traveling with a truck-load of stuff provided me and my mom with the freedom to take the scenic route and stop whenever (and wherever) our hearts desired.
Leaving Los Angeles was tough. Not only did I have to say goodbye to friends, but we left right after the Santa Ana windstorm. While the winds may have left LA, they were still causing a ruckus outside of the city. For a while it was impossible to get above 60mph as I drove ... Read More
If you’re looking to move someplace that is hospitable to cyclists, there are a few bike-friendly cities in the U.S. you could consider. The best cities for cyclists will have bike trails, reasonable weather, and a large cyclist community. Bicycle parking and fitness gear accommodations are also a bonus for storing bike gear. Read on to learn more about the best cities for cycling.
Boulder, Colorado The city of Boulder offers many biking trails in and around the area, but its majestic scenery makes the cycling experience all the more enjoyable.

Follow Jennifer's 3-part blog series as she describes her cross country moving experience with U-Pack!
Four months ago I did something kind of crazy: I quit my full-time job to pursue a lucrative career as a freelance writer. Why did I quit my full-time job with benefits in a beach-front office at a promising tech startup? Because I fell out of love with Los Angeles.
Two years (and one month) ago, I left my home in Chicago and accepted a full-time job with a company in LA. It was hard to leave, but the opportunity simply was too good to pass up. And who couldn't use an excuse to escape the brutal Chicago winter? But as time went on, I started missing my family, my friends, and even the seasons (Christmas lights wrapped around a palm tree just isn't the same).
When I left the company I came out here for, I hoped to build enough of a life for my... Read More
OK, so maybe these aren't quite in your budget; they're still great fun to look at! I have to admit, my first though when I saw the square footage of Carmello Anthony's home was, "how in the world would I keep a home that large clean?" I have a feeling he figured it out.
Here is the shortened version of the Yahoo! list:
Michael Jackson's 17,171-square-foot estate is listed at $29,995,000.
Ricky Martin's Golden Beach, Florida home is on the market for ju... Read More
It's football season. Know how I know? The DVR is full, my husband is glued to both his laptop and the television, and most nights of the week include much more aggressive jumping and yelling that you would have seen last month, or the month before. Of course, my husband is the manager of an NFL team…kind of. Fantasy Football is alive and well at our house.
Which brings me to this: I have a feeling we aren't the only ones who'll be donning jerseys several nights of the week to cheer on our favorite college and NFL teams (Go Hogs! Go Cowboys!). If you're a lover of all-things-football, I think you'll find this infographic, just released in the U-Pack press room, very interesting. It's a list of the Top 5 NFL Stadiums in the U.S.&nbs...

Right before the summer of 2008, when gas prices started to get out of control, people began throwing around the word "staycation". Instead of going on big, expensive vacations, families stayed at home to relax and take in day trips to area attractions. What a great idea! Basically, a vacation without traveling expenses.
For folks in the middle of a long-distance move, I imagine the idea of a staycation is very appealing. What better way to get to know your new city— not to mention save money after the expense of a move. And since U-Pack Moving does the driving, you're free to drive your own vehicle and have a little fun (and hopefully relaxation) along the way. Here are some great ideas of things you can do to relax an... Read More
These days, channels like "DIY" and "HGTV" offer lots of TV programs that teach you how to flip a house, make quick fixes to sell your home in a month, and even decorate your new place like a celebrity on a modest budget. With all of that activity, who has time for a regular old sitcom?
Here's something that might surprise you— I've found several moving tips and tricks from the popular TV show "FRIENDS" that can help you through a cross country move. Who knew? Despite endless teasing from my friends and coworkers, this die-hard fan decided it was time to share "What I've Learned about Moving from FRIENDS". Check out these wise quotes and apply the hidden lessons to make yo... Read More
It's Flashback Friday— each week, U-Pack will revisit a blog topic that's been helpful and fun for our readers. Be sure to check the comments section of each post for even more valuable moving advice!
Since this post was originally introduced, we've received lots of suggestions for additions to the list of moving away songs (just check out the comments). If you could contribute to another list of songs about moving away, what tunes would you include?
Do you have a friend who's moving away? You'll definitely need music for the going away party. We realize it can be a sad time, but you don't want every song to be a tearjerker. Think about all the good times you've had together, and let your fr... Read More

Texas music— a song for practically every city! Though it didn't include any Texas music, you've already seen us post a list of the best moving away songs. Upbeat tunes can really get you going, and I think it's essential to keeping the energy up during a stressful move. So if you're moving to Texas, naturally you'll need some true-blue Texas music to prepare for your new surroundings. (This may seem obvious, but Texas music' typically refers to country/western or outlaw country' styles, although the Texas Red Dirt' genre is quickly gaining popularity.) Here are just a few tracks to get you started:
Practically everybody has heard of a place or two with a bizarre name; but not everyone has heard of the extremely odd town names on U-Pack's newest list. (Just remember that if you decide you would like to live in any of these places, ABF U-Pack is the perfect moving company for the job!)
Strange city names that you'll have to see to believe Without further ado, here's the official U-Pack list of odd town names (in no particular order):
If there's a celebrity moving to a new home, chances are it's going to make headlines. Just ask Jesse James— thanks to his public split with Sandra Bullock, it was big news when the media found out he was moving to Texas. While moving isn't that high-profile for most of us, it's still stressful. Take a look at the following celebrity moving examples so far in 2010:
Reality star Kendra Wilkinson moved to Philadelphia so her husband, NFL player Hank Baskett, could prepare for his new season with the Eagles.
News broke in early August that golf legend ... Read More
If you're moving and want to tell everyone your new address, save a stamp (hey, every cent counts when you're on a moving budget). Send moving announcements via email.
There's a great selection of free moving announcements to choose from - whether you need a card that says, "We're moving", "I'm moving", or even a pleading invite to a packing party, you're covered.
Your concern may be similar to what mine might be - giving out friend's and family's email addresses is kind of considered a no-no. Who wants to subject their loved ones to a bombardment of unsolicited emails? Not me. The good news is that U-Pack practices permission marketing. That means we... Read More
Great Housewarming Gifts to Warm the Heart – and Your Home! Are you trying to select a housewarming gift for a friend or acquaintance that is moving? You can always give the standard gift card or kitchen appliance, but it means more if you put some thought into it. Think about the people you're buying for. Do they love the outdoors? Are they environmentalists at heart? Do they love to cook – or just love to eat? Here are some personalized housewarming gift ideas for the new homeowners in your life:
• Fun Apron + Grill Accessories • Customized Coasters • Window box herb garden • DIY Book for the less than handy' man in your life • Enroll your food-lover friends in a wine of the month club or a monthly fruit delivery • Indoor compost bin... Read More
If you're moving with kids and moving with U-Pack, you'll be able to drive your own car and have some fun along the way! I know a lot of vehicles are equipped with entertainment systems and DVD players these days…but take your kids on a trip down memory lane – sing some good road trip songs and play the old school road trip games. Here are a few suggestions – feel free to comment and add to the list!
Road Trip Games I Spy – Since you're riding in a car and the things you have to spy are limited, this might be a short game. But it's great for holding a preschooler's attention. The person who is "It" says, "I spy with my little eyes something blue." Then, the person who guesses correctly goes next.
You're moving. Almost everyone knows you are moving to a new city, but more than likely you haven't had a chance to tell them your actual new address. Besides formally changing your address at the Post Office, you probably want to tell your friends and family both near and far what your new address will be.
Did you know U-Pack has a solution for this too?
We have some nifty moving e-cards that you can send to as many people as you want free of charge. You can pick out the card and add a personalized message. There are some really neat ones to choose from. There are even invitations to invite friends over for a moving party (well, you can always try). It only takes a minute or two and Voila! everyone knows your new address (or when ... Read More
You just have to prove that you are a master packer and get the highest score on our U-Pack-A-Cube game!
Oh, you've never played it? Well go give it a shot.
I know it sounds silly, but it really is rather addicting. And since it only takes 60 seconds, there is absolutely no commitment involved. My highest score so far is 210, and I was pretty proud of that until one of my coworkers posted a score of 225! I obviously can't win the prize, but it's still entertaining.
If you are not moving, you could also opt for a $100 American Express gift card if you win. That is better than Cash!!! One tip though: don't pack the cat…
The decisions that cause people to move usually involve family matters or career changes. While this can be an exciting time, it can also be hard to leave your friends behind. But you're too busy to have a going away party, right? Between sorting, packing, and cleaning your schedule is booked solid.
So, why not have a packing party instead? Friends love to help out, and you can laugh and reminisce as you work. You don't even have to mail invitations! Just send one of the free moving announcements... Read More
