On a tight budget and need to rent a trailer?
If you’re moving on a budget and want to rent a trailer, you’ve likely thought about renting from a local truck rental company. But before you go down that path, have you considered U-Pack®? We’re a very convenient solution, especially if you’d prefer someone else to do the driving instead of pulling a rental trailer behind your personal vehicle.
How does U-Pack work?
With U-Pack, you can load into as little or as much space as you need (down to a 5 ft. minimum)—and only pay for the space you use. Our customers love being in control of the price. For instance, if you’re moving a small amount of belongings and considering pulling a 5’x8’ rental trailer behind your vehicle, your belongings should fit well inside 5 linear feet of the 28 ft. moving trailer (5’ x8’ x 9’) or one ReloCube moving container (6’ x 7’ x 8’). If you have a larger move, you can use as much of the trailer or as many ReloCubes as you need. You’ll only be charged for what you use. If you use less space, you pay less. That’s much better.
U-Pack delivery works like this:
U-Pack arranges to have a moving trailer or ReloCube(s) delivered to your home. You load it, and U-Pack arranges delivery to your destination. Since pulling a bulky trailer behind your personal vehicle isn’t always ideal, many customers find the “you pack, we drive” option a perfect solution! Why do the driving if you don’t have to, right? Right!
If U-Pack sounds like it may fit your needs, get a moving quote to see how it fits your budget. Simply enter the basic information about your move and you can see the price instantly. If you’re not sure how much space you may need or the number of Cubes you should reserve, our Simple Space Estimator can help. We’re also happy to provide pricing over the phone. Just call 800-413-4799 and a moving specialist will gladly help.
Does trailer rental fit into my budget?
At first glance, driving a rental truck and/or pulling a trailer may seem like the most affordable option. And if you’re moving locally, that may very well be the case. But if you’re moving long distance, options like U-Pack may be just as affordable and definitely MUCH more convenient. That’s good news if you’re on a budget but dread the thought of pulling a trailer behind the entire way.
One thing to remember with truck and trailer rental is that the prices don’t include things like fuel, highway tolls, taxes, or damage protection. When you start adding these costs, the price increases—sometimes significantly. Let’s take fuel for example. A 500 mile move may cost $300 in fuel, but a 1,400 mile move? That could run you $700 (not including the trailer rental cost, taxes, or coverage). That’s pretty steep.
With U-Pack, you don’t have to worry about “extras” like fuel, taxes, tolls, or the driver because it’s all included in your quote. Here are even more reasons to avoid trailer rental and go U-Pack:
- You get the moving trailer or ReloCube delivered right to your door. If you rent a trailer, you have to go get it and take it back.
- You don’t have to worry about maneuvering a huge box truck or trailer on the interstate and through big cities.
- No worries about break downs or flat tires in a rental.
- Also no worries of trailer sway while pulling a trailer with a rental truck or your personal vehicle.
- U-Pack offers some of the fastest transit times in the industry; most moves average just 2-5 business days.
