Do you need help with moving?

Full service isn’t the only option for moving help

If you’re moving long distance and don’t want to do all the work, what options do you have? You could hire a full service mover, but that can get expensive. Or you could hire movers from online message boards, but how can you make sure they can be trusted? It’s easy to get overwhelmed and even easier to blow your budget. U-Pack offers a solution that involves combining U-Pack with moving help to give you the services you need at a price you can afford.

Getting Help With Packing and Loading

August 19th, 2014 - 4:02 PM

Need a Hand?

There may be situations where doing your own packing and loading isn't an option. The self-move service price may look great, but doing the physical part of the move just won't work. Do you throw in the towel and go with a full-service mover? Sure they do it all – the packing, loading and driving – but what about the price? The cost of a full-service mover can put a serious hurt on your pocket book. So what does a budget-conscious consumer do?

Finding Movers and Packers

Do I need movers and packers?

Are you looking for movers and packers? Did you know that you can actually save money on your move by doing the packing yourself? While this option doesn’t work for everyone, many people like the idea of packing their own stuff, then hiring movers to do the loading, unloading and driving. Some even like to do their own loading and unloading, too – especially if it means saving more money.

Moving a Sofa - Will it fit in a ReloCube?

By Jeremy
September 21st, 2011 - 8:53 AM

Questions about the U-Pack service often revolve around what will fit inside the ReloCube (U-Pack's equivalent to a PODS® container).  One of the questions we get most often (next to "will a mattress fit into a ReloCube?") is, "Will my sofa fit into a ReloCube?"  This is a little more difficult to answer than the mattress question - which we'll talk about in a future post - but only because sofas come in so many shapes and sizes. So pull out your measuring tape, it's going to require that you measure the length of your sofa to determine if it'll fit into the ReloCube.
