U-Haul Locations vs. U-Pack Locations

November 12th, 2013 - 4:10 PM

How do I find a U-Haul location?

To locate your nearest U-Haul store, you’ll need to visit U-Haul’s website. But, before you go, take a second to learn about getting a cheap move without having to drive. 

You might automatically think that renting a truck is the easiest and cheapest option for your move—which may be true for local moves. However, if you are moving long distance, you might not realize that you can move cheap without having to visit a local office, pick up a truck, or drive. U-Pack is a great alternative to truck rental because you can get discount moving without having to drive at all.

Before you visit a neighborhood U-Haul location, learn how U-Pack compares. You can get a move at a comparable price without the hassle.

Rent a Truck

October 25th, 2013 - 12:02 PM

Do you want to rent a truck?

If you're trying to save money on a cross-country move, intuition may tell you that you have to rent a truck. And that thought may cause concerns that make you dread moving. Am I choosing the right size rental truck? Can I drive that far in a huge vehicle that I’m not familiar with? How am I going to drive it through large cities? How difficult will it be to tow my vehicle? Will my stuff be safe parked in a hotel parking lot overnight? Once I pay for gas, taxes and insurance, how much will it really cost to rent a truck? Is there a better way to move?  

Your concerns are legitimate.

How much do moving trucks cost?

August 2nd, 2013 - 10:18 AM

I’m thinking about renting a moving truck, but I’m not sure how much they cost.

You have lots of options for your upcoming long-distance move, including renting a moving truck. For local moves, moving trucks are usually easy on the wallet. But you can’t always say the same for long-distance moves. When you start adding on additional costs like fuel, damage coverage and sales tax, the price starts going up; sometimes even doubling your quoted price.

Let’s look at an example of how much moving trucks cost

Let’s say you’re moving 1,425 miles from Phoenix, AZ to Memphis, TN in a 20 ft. moving truck during peak moving season.
