Remember the days when you chose a service based exclusively on brand name and price? Not the case anymore, is it? Now, it's much more about the consumer, and much less about the company. It's nice that every customer has a voice and a forum to use it. That's the way it should be.

Working for a moving service makes me overly conscious of what questions should be asked when choosing moving companies. It's kind of like how mechanics know what to look for when your car doesn't run and how realtors know what to do to sell your house quickly – when it's what you do, it's what you know.
So, I try to put myself in the shoes of the person who has never moved before - just to consider all the questions that surface when choosing moving companies.
Here's the beginning of my list of questions people ask (and my answers)
feel free to add more!

Determining the Cost of Your Move
With U-Pack it's simple to determine the cost of your move. We simply base the moving cost on where you're moving from and to, how much moving trailer space or number of ReloCubes you use and your move date.

True, a lot of people live in standard-size houses and can easily figure out how much trailer space or how many ReloCubes they'll need using just a simple space estimator or truck rental conversion chart. Also true, many people don't. And when you don't, it can be a challenge to figure out how much space you'll need.

Military Move with U-Pack
When you're doing a military move, it can sometimes be a "hurry up and wait" affair. You may know that you're moving from Camp Pendleton in two weeks, but not know where. You might also know that you'll be moving to Fort Campbell, but have no idea when. This can create quite a problem with most moving companies. It's easy to get movers in Fort Hood, Texas but if you find your destination is Fort Greely, Alaska they may not be so readily available – then you're out of luck.

OK, so you just bought a new house involving a cross-country move and you got a great deal on a rental truck. Sure
you have to drive it. But it's cheap. Here's the bummer though – the sellers won't agree to let you move in early and you don't have anything to do with your things during the "in between" time of moving out of your old place and into the new.

Military Appreciation Month
In honor of Military Appreciation Month in May, we wanted to find ways to show our appreciation to soldiers serving overseas and those who are back home. We came across an organization called A Million Thanks and were so incredibly impressed by this young lady who took it upon herself to make sure the troops are given a proper thank you, that we wanted to take part in her effort.

Staging for an Open House
Are you thinking about selling your house? Then you'll need to learn, memorize, and frequently repeat the Staging Motto (embarrassing yes
sometimes you do what you gotta do).
The Staging Motto:
"In order to please the masses, I will create a house that is clean, simplistic, and updated. This is no longer all about me, but rather selling this house and maybe making some money on the deal."
