Moving Calculators, Resources, and Estimators

No matter what you’re tackling, you need the right tools for the job. If you’re digging a hole, you need a shovel. And if you’re changing a tire, you need a jack. It’s the same with moving; you need the right moving tools. The US Census Bureau reports that the average person moves 11 times in their lifetime – so though you may not need moving tools often, it’s always good to know where they are when you do!  To make it easy, we’ve gathered all the moving resources you’ll need to plan for your move. Check them out below.

What does it cost to rent a truck for a self-move?

It’s a solution that’s much more convenient than moving into a traditional storage facility. Let’s take a look at how it works, what your options are, and how much it costs.

December 10th, 2014 - 3:50 PM

What is residential freight shipping?

Let’s go over some options for both of these cases.

Moving in the Winter

December 5th, 2014 - 4:06 PM

Oh the weather outside is frightful…

And moving in the winter can be far from delightful. There are a handful of reasons people choose to bundle up and move their belongings in cold, snowy conditions—and lower moving rates is the big one. Winter is considered an “off-peak” moving season, which means when the temps start dropping outside, fewer people move, and so the price to move drops, too. It’s a benefit that makes the thought of a winter move a little more bearable.

Do I need a passport to move to Mexico?

December 3rd, 2014 - 8:00 AM

Important note: Effective April 28, 2015, U-Pack has discontinued service to and from Mexico.

Is a passport required for U.S. citizens to move to Mexico?

Yes. According to the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs, U.S. citizens (including children) must present a valid US passport book or card to enter Mexico – whether moving there or just visiting. If you enter Mexico by air, a passport book is required. If you enter Mexico by land or sea, you can use a passport book or passport card.
