How U-Pack ships household goods

U-Pack has revolutionized the way people ship household goods. You do the packing, loading, and unloading, and U-Pack does the driving. It’s a great way to save money without having to do all the work! And, even better, the prices are similar to truck rental.

With access to close to 300 service centers across the U.S., U-Pack can provide household goods shipping services to almost any location—whether you’re shipping a little or a lot. Let’s look at U-Pack’s shipping options.

You can choose to load your belongings into a 28-foot trailer, and pay for the space you use (with a 5 ft. minimum), or load your belongings into a metal shipping container and pay based on the number of containers you use. It’s up to you. We deliver right to your door, give you up to three business days to load, and then deliver to your door at your new home in a matter of days (U-Pack transit times average 2-5 business days).

How to lower your household goods shipping price even more

If you’re on a tight budget, and door-to-door pricing doesn’t work, consider a U-Pack terminal-to-terminal move. With this option you bring the items you need shipped to the local ABF service center, load them, and then unload at the ABF service center closest to your destination. While this may be a little difficult with large moves, it’s a great money-saving option for small shipments.
