10 reasons why moving is good for you

July 3rd, 2012 - 1:27 PM
After living in a small town all of my life (even through graduate school), my husband and I moved to a city a little over an hour away to begin careers. I lived in different places during the summer, but always returned back to my hometown for fall college classes; so as you can imagine, I was a little nervous about moving to a new place for longer than two months. Now that I’ve lived in this new place for a while, I’ve realized that the move has been good for me in many ways.

Are there websites with reviews on moving companies?

July 2nd, 2012 - 2:19 PM

I love using online reviews, and I have a feeling I’m not alone. What people have to say about products and services I’m planning on purchasing has a huge impact on my decision to take the plunge. If we’re traveling, I always look up reviews for hotels and restaurants in the area. If I decide to get a haircut at a new salon, I never walk in the door without searching for reviews – who wants to walk out with a horrendous style.

How much does moving cost?

June 29th, 2012 - 2:57 PM

If you’ve been trying to answer the question, “How much does moving cost?” with a straight-forward answer, you’ll end up frustrated every time, simply because the real answer is, it all depends. It would be difficult, impossible even, to find someone who is moving the same belongings, on the same day, from and to the same place you’re moving. Your move is truly one-of-a-kind, so the price of your move is going to be one-of-a-kind as well. Here’s what your moving cost depends on:

How to move quickly

June 28th, 2012 - 3:42 PM

I remember as a little kid getting on my older brother’s back and pretending that he was a horse. I would “spur” him with my bare feet to make him go faster and faster. I would even yell “faster, faster!” as his knees took a beating to the floor. Then when he was done being my pretend horse, he would buck me off gently and I’d go bug the other big brother for a ride.

When you move traditionally and say “faster, faster!” it’s your belongings that may take a beating. But it doesn't have to be that way. When you move with U-Pack and say “faster, faster!” that’s just what you get!

What are the best moving companies for long-distance?

June 28th, 2012 - 3:37 PM

Moving long-distance is very different from moving down the street. You’ve likely already discovered that it requires a lot of planning: for delivery at your origin and destination, the logistics involved with getting your belongings to you in a timely manner, the requirements of each state you’re traveling to (not to mention the authority to transport your belongings across state lines). That’s why it’s so important to look to moving companies that specialize in long-distance moving.

What is the best time to move?

How to Find Moving Companies

June 25th, 2012 - 4:35 PM

The search for a good moving company doesn’t have to be like the search for Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster. Good moving companies do exist; you just have to know where to look.  Finding them is all about knowing what type of service you need, how the services compare and how to check credibility.

One-Way Moves: Getting the Lowest Price

June 20th, 2012 - 3:57 PM

I think the term “one-way moving” is funny. I mean, one-way flights might be rare, but I imagine that most moves are one-way.  I mean honestly, who packs up their whole house to move it across the country then turns right around and moves it back? Is there round-trip moving in comparison? (If that has happened to you, my heart goes out to you). Despite all that, because of the truck rental industry, people are familiar with the phrase “one-way moving,” as one-way truck rental is a popular option. If you’re looking at one-way moves and want to find the lowest prices, I have GREAT news for you!
