It's Flashback Friday! Each week U-Pack revisits a post that has been helpful (or fun) for our readers. Today's Flashback is helpful. It's all about finding the cheapest way to move across the country. If you're moving on a budget, I think you'll find it a very helpful read!
You know the saying "you can't have your cake and eat it, too"? That's what many think when it comes to moving— if it's easy, it must cost a fortune; or if it's a good deal, then there must be a catch. But U-Pack isn't your typical moving company. In most cases U-Pack is the cheapest way to move cross country and it's a simple moving solution!
Moving Cross Country Cheap
If you look at moving forums like movingscam.com, or consumer review sites like epinions.com, you'll likely find that U-Pack is one of the best options for moving cross country cheap. And not only is it cheap, it's also dependable (which runs a tight race with cheap in many people's opinions). That's why at epinions.com, you'll see words like "inexpensive" and "competitive prices" used regularly.
How does U-Pack accomplish moving across country cheap?
Have you seen an ABF Trailer like this traveling on the highway or in your city?
This is what your household belongings travel across country in if you choose a U-Pack trailer move. It comes to your home empty and ready to load. If you don't use the entire trailer, you don't pay for the entire trailer. You just pay for what you use (with a 5 ft. minimum). And this is one way U-Pack allows you to move cross country cheap.
As you can see in the image below, ABF has close to 300 service centers located throughout the U.S. And this is great for efficient travel, fast transit times, and cost reduction. Essentially, your belongings travel similar to how a box moves through a parcel shipping system. Professional ABF drivers travel from ABF terminal to ABF terminal until they get to the terminal servicing your destination city, then a city driver delivers it to your home. Another way U-Pack can offer a way to move cross country cheap.
As the U-Pack name suggests, you do the packing, loading and unloading, and ABF does the driving. So, if you're a "do-it-yourselfer" and can handle taking on some of the work to get a lower price, a "you pack, we drive" service is a great solution for moving cross country cheap. (If you're not really a "do-it-yourselfer", but still want to save money, you can add packing and loading help to your U-Pack move and still save money compared to most full-service movers.) Another reason you can move cross country cheap with U-Pack.
