I heard a terrible story a few days ago
one that made me want to remind everyone to be very careful about the moving company you choose. I won't name any names – since I believe everyone is innocent until proven guilty and I only got one side of the story – and it was the Reader's Digest version. But, still, I've heard these stories before – and if you look at message boards online, you'll probably read similar stories. Really, it's just heart-breaking.

Need local information?
It's pretty easy to find the general city data for an area (such as the population, zip codes, etc). However, it's not so easy to find out the useful local information that affects your day to day life.

Compare Penske truck rental rates to a U-Pack quote
Practically everyone has heard moving horror stories where someone ends up "broken down on the side of the highway". I'm not going to re-tell one of those stories because in truth, they don't happen to every single person that drives a rental truck. What I will tell you has to do with one very important aspect of moving— the cost. Penske truck rentals are known for seeming fairly inexpensive, but what many people may not consider are the 'extras'; things like fuel, meals on the road, extra hotel stays, etc.

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.
