Do-it-yourself moving: How it saves you money

August 27th, 2012 - 1:39 PM

Anytime you do something yourself, you can usually count on saving money. For instance, when we moved into our new home, we did all the painting ourselves, and you guessed it, we saved tons by not hiring a professional painter. Instead of hiring a landscaper, my husband mows our lawn and weeds the flowerbeds – another big money saver. Moving is no different. If you can do at least some of the work yourself, you’ll definitely save money – sometimes a significant amount. Let’s take a look at exactly how much you can save by doing a self-move and taking on some of the work yourself.

What is the gas mileage of a Budget truck?

Picture this: you are moving from Boston to Dallas. You rent a Budget truck. You have to fill it up before your trip. It is a 35 gallon tank.  You spend $130 on your first tank of gas. 280 miles down the road, you have to stop and fill up again.  Repeat every 280 miles. That is about 7 stops on your 1768 mile route! That is almost $1000 in gasoline!

Before you embark on your rental truck journey, find out what to expect for the gas mileage of your Budget truck.

Moving Out of an Apartment

August 2nd, 2012 - 3:09 PM

The first “homes” I had after moving out of my parents’ house were apartments. Nothing like sharing walls with strangers!

We’ve caught it and there is no cure. We will go through terrible withdrawals when it is over. “It” is Olympic fever! Here at U-Pack our water cooler talk is all about the Olympics. We know quite a bit about different places in the US, mostly because we have moved some of our 500,000 customers just about everywhere at some point…so we naturally wanted to know where these talented athletes train.
