Do you dread driving a rental truck across the country?

Most people do. If you had it your way, you’d hire someone else to do it all. But that’s pricey, and your number one priority is saving money. So truck rental it is, right? It doesn’t have to be. There’s a way to make the same budget-friendly move without driving a rental.

You’re really excited that U-Pack does the driving, but what else is there to know about this affordable moving company?

  • Whether it’s the moving trailer or moving container option you choose, you control the price of your move by how much space you use inside the trailer or how many containers you use. Simply put, you pay for what you use. Use our space estimator tool to determine the amount of space of number of Cubes you need.
  • U-Pack averages cross country transit times of 2-5 business days – fast delivery means settling in sooner.
  • When you get your moving quote, you’ll see that it includes the driver, fuel, taxes, tolls, and standard liability coverage – all your costs are wrapped together in one low-price package.
  • Instead of moving door-to-door, you can move terminal-to-terminal. This means you’ll do your loading/unloading at the service center rather than at your home. On average, U-Pack customers save $300 on their move with this option.
