A Quick Way to Calculate the Cost to Fuel a Rental Truck

Just use the U-Pack Fuel Cost Calculator. It’s designed to help you figure out how much you would spend to gas up a rental truck for a move from your old home to your new.

It’s simple. Enter where you’re moving from and to, then click “Calculate” to see the estimated cost. The number you’ll see is based on the National Average Price per Gallon and the average miles per gallon of a rental truck. Try it out!  If you want to do the math on your own, you can follow this easy equation:

Total Miles ÷ MPG x Price of Gas per Gallon = Cost to fill up the rental truck.

Make your moving checklist work for you

True, a lot of people live in standard-size houses and can easily figure out how much trailer space or how many ReloCubes they'll need using just a simple space estimator or truck rental conversion chart. Also true, many people don't. And when you don't, it can be a challenge to figure out how much space you'll need.

Tracking your U-Pack shipment is simple. 
When you get your ABF trailer or ReloCube for loading, the ABF driver will put a sticker at the top corner of your Bill of Lading (the contractual agreement between you and ABF).  This is your tracking number (also called a PRO number). After the loaded trailer or ReloCube is picked up, you can start tracking it online or by phone.

Track your move by phone.
Just call 800-367-2237, choose option 1 and enter your 9 digit tracking number. The automated phone system will tell you the latest location of your trailer or ReloCube.

Wow, talk about a can of worms! When I started researching fuel calculation so that you, our customer, would know how much better you can budget when using U-Pack, I got more than I bargained for. I was looking for information about the size of rental truck gas tanks and ran across a web site that discussed how driving a rental truck is so much different than your own vehicle. It is definitely something to think about when weighing your options.

This has got to be the one question I hear most often. Probably the most correct answer is: It Depends.

There is not a mold in which you can fit every person who moves a 3 bedroom home. But there are ways that you can be very accurate with your estimates.

Have you moved in the past?

Guaranteed Transit - Worth Every Penny?

On Time. Every time. Guaranteed.

Your U-Pack moving quote comes with a price that is based on an estimated transit time. U-Pack estimates transit times using real numbers for completed moves, so it's likely that your items will arrive at your destination within the estimated time. However, there is always a possibility that the transit time could vary. Normally when this happens it's due to factors like a large number of shipments moving at the same time and in the same direction.  Keep in mind that your trailer or ReloCube can be tracked 24 hours a day using your ABF Tracking Number (sometimes called your Freight Bill number). If you're curious…check the estimated transit time for your move.

Transit time begins the business day after pick up and does not include weekends or holidays.

U-Pack and realtors share a common interest. We are both in the business of moving people out of one home and into another one.

Recently U-Pack was mentioned in Realtor Rightings, the Magazine of the Arkansas Realtors® Association. An article titled "Free Tools for Realtors" gave several tools that realtors can utilize on their web sites to improve the services provided to people that are buying and selling homes.
