We often get questions about how U-Pack equipment compares to Budget truck rental equipment. When you're comparing prices and services, it's good to know how the sizes convert so you can make sure you're comparing apples with apples.
To help you get a good picture of what an ABF moving trailer looks like, they're 28 feet in length, 8 feet wide, and 9 feet tall. So they're longer, wider and taller than even the largest Budget rental truck.
The chart below converts Budget truck rental sizes to ABF trailer linear footage.

Always looking for a deal
It seems like everyone is looking for the cheapest moving truck rentals these days. And why wouldn't they? Penny pinching is what's "cool" right now. I would wager a bet that if you picked up a magazine from a news stand today, you would find a helpful article titled something like: "Ways to save", "Top 10 things you can do to cut back", or "20 painless money-saving tips".

Let's face it, we've all been concerned about money since the economy went south in September. (We're all looking forward to Spring in hopes our 401k and investment accounts migrate back up with the birds!) At U-Pack, we get calls daily from folks who are moving because of a company change such as downsizing, consolidation or sadly, a closure.
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.

Timing is Everything
If you've been researching your move, you've probably found that the moving industry runs on a system of "peak" and "off-peak" days, similar to the airline industry. That just means that some days are more expensive than others. If you've got some flexibility, choose an off-peak moving day to save a little money.
