Shipping Regulations To and From Alaska

June 19th, 2009 - 4:28 PM

So, you're moving to Alaska and you've found that U-Pack is the easiest, most affordable way to get there.  If you've done your research, you probably already know that it's ok to move smaller items with gas engines in an ABF trailer or ReloCube (like ATV's, chainsaws, weed eaters, mowers and motorcycles).  What you may or may not know is that shipments moving into and out of Alaska are randomly inspected at the port, and if the shipment is not in compliance with Coast Guard shipping regulations, you run the risk of being fined in excess of $700 f

The Storage Solution

By Michael
June 12th, 2009 - 3:34 PM

In the beginning there was just you. And all was well. Then you got stuff. And then more stuff. Suddenly you realized what storage meant. Storage would free you from your stuff. Not forever; just until you needed it again.

Storage is a wonderful thing for people like you. People with stuff. Stuff you sometimes need to put into storage.

Perhaps you haven't thought about storage. That's probably because you haven't needed to move.

Moving Containers

May 29th, 2009 - 10:33 AM

What's all the hype about Moving Containers?

Really, they're just a pretty cool way to move. And I'm particularly partial to the U-Pack moving container – the ReloCube®.  They're the "in" way to move these days. And who doesn't want to move the "in" way?  I know…you're wondering why they're so "in". Here's my guess – These days people are looking for convenience, ease and most of all, ways to save money. Since that's what you get with a ReloCube, it makes sense that people love them.

Moving to A New City

May 18th, 2009 - 4:35 PM

Get to know your new city
So you're moving to a new home or apartment. What's next?  Once you get there, you can't just stay in the house all day.  And come on, you aren't going to be at work all day either.  What do you do after work and on the weekends?  How are you supposed to meet people?  You need a strategy to learn the area and have some fun.   

Get out of the house. 
Start by checking out the local newspapers and area entertainment magazines to find events that interest you. Then start taking advantage of the local attractions like parks, libraries, museums and coffee shops.

Win a Free Move!

The Noisy Neighbor
She was just about to drift off to sleep when it started…thump, thump, thump – the sound of bass from the stereo upstairs. Seriously?  Then, as usual, the voices and laughter started. At least she thought it was laughter. Either that or a stray hyena wandered in from the Serengeti to give birth. Do these people ever sleep? That's it. She can't take another night of this. It's time to move.

Some Fine Looking Boxes

By Michael

You need to think outside the box. Whoever said that was not getting ready to move. Moving is all about the box. Make that, "boxes," because you'll need a lot of them to move. In fact, you can't move without boxes. At least not if you plan to take anything with you.

When it's time to move, you better be thinking inside the box.

Budget Moving

April 20th, 2009 - 9:29 AM

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.
