I’m on a budget, so I’m looking for the most affordable moving companies.

You’re not alone, my friend. Most people moving to a new state are on a budget too, so finding an affordable moving company is top priority.

Planning a You Pack Move

June 24th, 2013 - 4:01 PM

You Pack Moving Services

We talk a lot about the fact that self-move “You Pack” services are really popular right now. People seem to be drawn to the idea of saving money by doing some of the work on their own (especially when it’s a significant savings).

I totally get that.

It makes complete sense that you’d want to avoid spending outrageous amounts of money by hiring someone to do it all if you can get friends and family to help out and move at a fraction of the cost.

That’s exactly the purpose of a “You Pack” move.
