Which self-moving service offers the best value: U-Haul® or U-Pack®?
You know that keeping costs low likely means choosing a DIY moving service, but with all the options available, how do you decide which company to go with? Truck rental has a reputation for low rates, so companies like U-Haul® are often a consideration when looking for cheap ways to move. But truck rental isn’t the only money-saving option. U-Pack® was designed as an affordable alternative for long-distance moves. You pack, load and unload, but you don’t have to drive. Compare what you get with U-Pack to what you get with a U-Haul, then check prices to determine which is the best value for your move.

DIY moving without a rental truck
While most people immediately think “truck rental” when they think of self-service moving, there are other options available. Small, local moves can be done with cargo trailers or multiple trips in a personal vehicle, but those options aren’t ideal for every situation. If you want to save money on a long-distance move, but would like to avoid long hours behind the wheel of an unfamiliar vehicle, a method that doesn’t involve driving may be best. Compare truck rental to a DIY moving service like U-Pack® to see how you can save.

Finding cheap moving trucks
For local, in-state moves, U-Haul®, Budget® and Penske® have a variety of cheap rental trucks available. But, because rates change constantly (due to location, truck size and the time of year you’re moving), it’s difficult to determine which company offers the cheapest moving truck prices.
