What is a moving trailer? How does it work?

Things to know before renting a Budget® trailer
There’s a lot to manage during a move — packing and loading household goods, arranging for new schools and jobs, and deciding whether to drive or tow your personal vehicle — just to name a few. If you think driving a rental truck and towing a car is the best bet, you may have considered a service like Budget® truck and trailer rental. This type of DIY move is often considered a money-saver, but driving a large rental truck with a trailer behind it isn’t a good option for everyone. Here are some things to consider before settling on a rental for your move.

What you need to know about U-Pack® ramps
If you’re using a U-Pack trailer for an upcoming move, you’ve probably noticed that it’s not ground level. Instead, it sits about 3.5 feet off the ground — which may leave you wondering how you’ll get boxes and heavy furniture in the equipment. To make loading convenient, safe and efficient, each trailer comes with a ramp specifically designed for our equipment. Learn how to use it and get answers to some frequently asked questions.

Moving can be stressful — especially when your belongings will spend a few days traveling cross country in a moving trailer to your new home. If you’re unsure about what happens to your belongings after you load them — are they shipped as-is? Are other items loaded in the trailer with them? Are they going to shift during transit? — understanding how it all works can help you feel calm.
For long distance moves, U-Pack uses something called a bulkhead to keep your items safe and secure during transit. A bulkhead is a divider wall that separates shipments inside a commercial trailer. When moving with a U-Pack trailer, your belongings are the only household goods on that trailer, and any unused space is loaded with commercial freight headed in the same direction. This method helps keep prices low and prevents your items from being co-mingled with other household shipments.

If you choose a ReloCube move, this is what is what you can expect to have delivered right to your door:
An empty, shiny 6' x 7' x 8' (DWH) container that sits flat on the ground for easy loading and unloading.
The ReloCube's interior dimensions are 70" x 82" x 93". You can reserve as many as you need and pay only for what you use. That means if you reserve three, but you can fit everything into two, you only pay for two—a benefit U-Pack customers LOVE!
