Linear Feet Calculator

Sometimes moving terms can be a little unclear. “Linear foot” is one we use a lot around here, and we get a lot of questions about what exactly a liner foot is and how to calculate it to determine moving costs.

Let's start by clearing up the definition: A linear foot is simply one foot in length –  12 inches. When it comes to a U-pack trailer move, your price is based on the linear feet your shipment takes up inside the trailer. So, if your quote shows the price for 10 linear feet, it's the price for your shipment taking up 10 feet in length, starting from the front of the trailer. Here's a great visual of what it means, and how it works:

Prepping a washing machine for a move

Whether it’s a front-load or a top-load washing machine, it’s important to make sure it’s ready before the moving truck arrives.

We recommend starting the process a few weeks ahead of time. That way, if you need to order parts, or if you have problems finding the owner's manual, you'll still have plenty of time to prepare it properly.

The Guide to Moving Books

If you’re moving, and you have a lot of books, you may not have given them much thought. They can’t break like your precious china, and they aren’t big like your couch—so what’s the big deal about moving them?

They’re heavy.

Well, actually, boxes full of books are heavy. One book may not weight much, but stack 10 together and the story changes. Whether you have a bookcase full or an entire library, it’s important to consider the weight, and be prepared to spread it out so you (or your movers) can easily carry the boxes on moving day.
