We're proud to offer a service that's free from worries about hidden fees or extra costs. If you're on a moving budget – ABF U-Pack Moving is the solution.

Alaska Moving
If you're considering Alaska moving companies, I'm sure you've already thought about how to move your household goods, your vehicle(s) and your family. ABF U-Pack moves hundreds of people to Alaska each year.  It's an easy and affordable option for moving to Alaska.

Like a full-service mover – ABF does all of the driving – but you'll pay MUCH less for a U-Pack move since you do the loading and unloading and you pay only for the space you use.

Packing for a Long Distance Move
There's a big difference between moving across town and moving across the country. Besides the extra time and expense, you also have to pack differently.

The nice thing about moving locally is that you can pack almost any way you want and not worry about it too much. You're only looking at a few minutes of travel time, so drive slowly and you're home free! When you are moving across the country, the rules change a little bit. Every item needs a secure place in your trailer or ReloCube.

Moving Truck Parking

Ask permission first, not forgiveness later...

Although the forgiveness route may work with some things, when a parking violation is on the line I wouldn't suggest it! City governments like to know what is being parked on their streets and if they don't approve, you could end up with a ticket. This is clearly not something you want to deal with when you're trying to move.

Save yourself a headache (and money) by calling your city hall or local police department before you move

I've got to admit though, when they flop, it's always because I didn't advertise or put much effort into it. So now I am a BIG advocate of advertising.

Here are some good tips for advertising your garage sale when you're moving:

A lot of people consider the kitchen the most popular room in the home.
