October 30th, 2012 - 7:27 AM

Absentee voting is voting by someone who is unable to vote at their official polling station.

Self-Service Moving with U-Pack

October 29th, 2012 - 8:53 AM

Self-Service Moving
Self-service moving isn’t limited to truck rental any more (yay!). Now you have more options that include doing your own loading and unloading but letting a professional do the driving. If you ask around I think you’ll find that many of your friends, family, and neighbors (or someone they know) went the “you pack, we drive” self-service route when they moved. It’s definitely catching on.

If you’re new to the concept, let me explain briefly who U-Pack is and how the service works.
