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.

Are you moving to Fort Hood and don't know where to start? Let me make a suggestion – start with getting a moving quote from U-Pack and compare the savings to other Fort Hood moving companies.
More than likely you're already familiar with DITY moving (do-it-yourself). But, just in case, I'll give you a quick run-down:

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.

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.

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.

Are your moving expenses tax deductible? It's tax time!

So, if you need a copy of your delivery receipt – with the total moving cost for your U-Pack move - we can help
and it's easy.

Not sure if you need a parking permit in your city?

If you're considering Alaska moving companies, I'm sure you've already thought about how to move your household goods, your vehicle(s) and your family. ABF U-Pack moves hundreds of people to Alaska each year. It's an easy and affordable option for moving to Alaska.
Like a full-service mover – ABF does all of the driving – but you'll pay MUCH less for a U-Pack move since you do the loading and unloading and you pay only for the space you use.
