Why should you use ABF U-Pack?

Part of the ABF Team

The name ABF U-Pack Moving is an obvious indication that U-Pack is a service of ABF. And that's something we're proud of.  While you're traveling cross country, you may have seen our trucks with the green stripe and the yellow letters "ABF" across the side – they're a familiar site on U.S. highways these days. You may have also seen on our website where we tout that ABF is one of the safest, most reliable carriers in the U.S.

That's not just talk…

Moving Companies - Choosing the right one

August 31st, 2009 - 1:34 PM

Working for a moving service makes me overly conscious of what questions should be asked when choosing moving companies. It's kind of like how mechanics know what to look for when your car doesn't run and how realtors know what to do to sell your house quickly – when it's what you do, it's what you know.

So, I try to put myself in the shoes of the person who has never moved before - just to consider all the questions that surface when choosing moving companies.

Here's the beginning of my list of questions people ask (and my answers)…feel free to add more!

Military Move

Military Move with U-Pack
When you're doing a military move, it can sometimes be a "hurry up and wait" affair. You may know that you're moving from Camp Pendleton in two weeks, but not know where.  You might also know that you'll be moving to Fort Campbell, but have no idea when. This can create quite a problem with most moving companies. It's easy to get movers in Fort Hood, Texas but if you find your destination is Fort Greely, Alaska they may not be so readily available – then you're out of luck. 

Portable Storage

OK, so you just bought a new house involving a cross-country move and you got a great deal on a rental truck. Sure…you have to drive it. But it's cheap. Here's the bummer though – the sellers won't agree to let you move in early and you don't have anything to do with your things during the "in between" time of moving out of your old place and into the new.

Military Appreciation Month - Support the troops

Military Appreciation Month

In honor of Military Appreciation Month in May, we wanted to find ways to show our appreciation to soldiers serving overseas and those who are back home. We came across an organization called A Million Thanks and were so incredibly impressed by this young lady who took it upon herself to make sure the troops are given a proper thank you, that we wanted to take part in her effort.

Staging for an Open House - House staging tips from U-Pack

Staging for an Open House

Are you thinking about selling your house? Then you'll need to learn, memorize, and frequently repeat the Staging Motto (embarrassing yes…helpful yes…sometimes you do what you gotta do).

The Staging Motto:

"In order to please the masses, I will create a house that is clean, simplistic, and updated. This is no longer all about me, but rather selling this house and maybe making some money on the deal."

Military Moving Card Drive

DITY Moving Service Conducts 'Card Drive' to Honor Military

In honor of Military Appreciation Month, ABF U-Pack Moving has mailed over 2,000 cards, letters and drawings to U.S. troops serving overseas. The 'card drive' took place throughout the month of May and was part of the "A Million Thanks" mission to show the troops support and appreciation. ABF U-Pack Moving is an approved nationwide DITY moving service based out of Fort Smith, Arkansas.  

Shipping Regulations To and From Alaska

June 19th, 2009 - 4:28 PM

So, you're moving to Alaska and you've found that U-Pack is the easiest, most affordable way to get there.  If you've done your research, you probably already know that it's ok to move smaller items with gas engines in an ABF trailer or ReloCube (like ATV's, chainsaws, weed eaters, mowers and motorcycles).  What you may or may not know is that shipments moving into and out of Alaska are randomly inspected at the port, and if the shipment is not in compliance with Coast Guard shipping regulations, you run the risk of being fined in excess of $700 f
