You can move cross-country affordably!

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. It’s easy, but it’s affordable, and there’s definitely not a catch. In fact, in many cases it’s the cheapest way to move across the country.

But it’s more than just cheap

When you first began planning your move across the U.S., was one of your first questions, “What’s the cheapest way to move across the country?” If so, you’re in good company. If you started your research with forums like movingscam.com, or consumer review sites like epinions.com, and yelp.com, you probably recognize the name U-Pack. Consumers call it a low-cost way to move—especially compared to full service moving companies. But that’s not it—U-Pack is also safe and dependable, which runs a tight race with cheap in some people’s opinion!   

How can U-Pack move you so economically?

Have you seen an ABF Freight Trailer like this traveling on the highway or in your city?

This is the type of equipment your household belongings will 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). Customers love the flexibility and the ability to control the price based on what you load (and what you leave behind). And there are no additional charges for things like fuel, taxes or basic liability coverage.

And this is the ReloCube.

It’s a great option for people with small moves or where parking is an issue. You can have one, or as many as you think you need, delivered to your driveway, parking lot, etc. And when you’re finished loading we’ll pick it up and move it across the country to your new home. Regardless of how many Cubes you reserve, you only pay for those you use.

As you can see in the image below, there are nearly 300 service centers located throughout the U.S. And this is great for efficient travel, fast transit times, and lower prices. Professional drivers travel from terminal to terminal until they get to the terminal servicing your destination city, then a city driver delivers it to your home. U-Pack transit times average just 2-5 business days!

As the U-Pack name suggests, you do the packing, loading and unloading, and ABF Freight 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 able to do it all yourself, and need a little help with the loading or unloading, we’re happy to refer you to Moving Staffers for the help you need—and you still get an reasonable price.
