A Comparable U-Haul® Truck Alternative

Now that you know all about U-Haul truck sizes, we’d love to introduce you to U-Pack®, a “you pack, we drive” moving company. Moving with U-Pack is the better choice for your long-distance move because you don’t have to worry about which size truck to rent.

Equipment: The U-Pack Moving Trailer is 28 ft. long. That’s equivalent in size to one 26 ft. Uhual truck plus another 10’ U-Haul truck with some room left over. The trailer can hold 22,500 lbs. max if the weight is distributed evenly throughout the trailer. It has a 2,000 cubic ft. capacity.

Flexibility: The best part about the trailer is that unlike a rental truck (where you pay for the entire truck whether you fill it all up or not), U-Pack charges based on the amount of space you use inside the trailer (down to a 5 ft. minimum). This means that the trailer can move a small or large home. If you use 16 ft., you pay for 16 ft. – flexibility is why 68% of U-Pack customers considered truck rental first, then chose U-Pack.

Storage: While you can’t store your belongings directly in a U-Haul truck, you can store your belongings directly in a U-Pack trailer.

Driving: U-Pack takes care of that for you, so load up the family car or fly the open skies.

No Extra Costs: A U-Pack moving quote includes the driver, fuel, taxes, tolls, a ramp, and standard liability coverage. U-Haul doesn’t include fuel, tolls, or coverage in your quote – they’re all extra costs to you.
