Info About U-Pack Moving Trailers

You’ve got choices when it comes to moving, and one of the most cost-effective is in a moving trailer. Today let’s look at what you get with U-Pack moving trailers, including how big they are, how much room you need for parking, how to load one, and how to get a quote.

To put it very simply, a moving trailer is a large metal box on wheels. It differs from your standard rental truck in that it detaches from the tractor, so it can be left at your location to pack up. Here’s an example of the moving trailers used by U-Pack.

Moving in a ReloCube - What to expect

If you choose a ReloCube move, this is what is what you can expect to have delivered right to your door:

Moving in a ReloCube

An empty, shiny 6' x 7' x 8' (DWH) container that sits flat on the ground for easy loading and unloading.

The ReloCube's interior dimensions are 70" x 82" x 93". You can reserve as many as you need and pay only for what you use. That means if you reserve three, but you can fit everything into two, you only pay for two—a benefit U-Pack customers LOVE!

Reserving an ABF Moving Trailer - What to Expect

If you reserve a moving trailer, equipment similar to this will be delivered to your door.

ABF Moving Truck and Trailer

This is a nice, clean, empty ABF Freight tractor and trailer. ABF Freight is the primary transportation provider for U-pack.

Moving Trailer Delivery
When the trailer arrives at your location, the driver will detach the tractor from the moving trailer and leave just the trailer behind. You'll simply advise the driver of where you would like it parked while you load. The trailer is 28' long, 8.5' wide and 13' tall (from the ground), so you'll want to verify there is a space that's at least 42' long, 10' wide and 14' high for delivery and pick-up.

26 Ft Truck vs. an ABF U-Pack Moving Trailer

When compared to a 28 ft moving trailer from U-Pack, a 26 ft truck doesn't sound much different. But did you know that a U-Pack moving trailer has almost 500 more cubic feet of space than a 26 ft truck? It's important to note that when choosing between a rental truck and a moving trailer, the amount of usable space for loading can make a big difference in your moving budget's bottom line.

Moving Weight Restrictions

Many of you ask whether our prices are based on weight, like many other movers . . . and luckily that isn't the case. U-Pack charges by the linear footage or the number of Cubes you use. This way of determining cost gives you more control over your price.

DOT Weight Restrictions
With this in mind, Our transportation providers are subject to state and federal over the road weight limits, and there may be fines assessed by the Department of Transportation (DOT) if the shipment exceeds legal weight limits. If you feel like your shipment may be slightly heavier than a normal household shipment, this can be very important.

When you're preparing to move it seems like there are always lots of questions and last minute concerns. And we get a lot of questions about our moving ramps – how to order one, how big they are, how much weight they hold, how to set them up, etc., etc. So, here are a few things you should know to be worry free and easily breeze thru your move. 

It's FREE!
We provide a free moving ramp with every trailer move. You don't have to request or reserve it – we automatically deliver it with your moving trailer. Ramps are limited to one per shipment – that's not a problem though, since one is all you'll need.
