To locate your nearest U-Haul store, you’ll need to visit U-Haul’s website. But, before you go, take a second to learn about getting a cheap move without having to drive.
You might automatically think that renting a truck is the easiest and cheapest option for your move—which may be true for local moves.

U-Pack is a great alternative to truck rental because you can get discount moving without having to drive at all.

Helpful Advice For Starting Your New Life Out Right
It was a little over two years ago that I tied the knot and moved into a new home with the love of my life. With two years of marriage under my belt, I was asked recently by a soon-to-be-married friend if I had any tips or advice about moving in together after they’re hitched. So I racked my brain, relived some great memories, consulted some experts and told her this:
Did moving leave you frazzled? Sit back and relax!
We feel your pain: you’ve been moving all day long. And whether the move took a few days or a few hours, to say you’re tired would be an understatement. You know what you need? A little relaxation. You deserve it. So forget about unpacking those moving boxes; you can get to that later (seriously, it’s not like they’re going anywhere!). Instead, give yourself a pat on back with these stress-free ways to relax.
Dig through the wardrobe box and find your comfiest set of PJs and house slippers. Instant relaxation.
I’m moving long distance. What are the best moving companies for the job?
“You pack, we drive” moving companies rank high at the top of the list. I may be a little biased, but I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t wholeheartedly mean it. But to be fair, how about you be the judge. Here’s a helpful comparison of some of the leading types of long-distance moving companies.
If you're trying to save money on a cross-country move, intuition may tell you that you have to rent a truck. And that thought may cause concerns that make you dread moving. Am I choosing the right size rental truck? Can I drive that far in a huge vehicle that I’m not familiar with? How am I going to drive it through large cities? How difficult will it be to tow my vehicle? Will my stuff be safe parked in a hotel parking lot overnight? Once I pay for gas, taxes and insurance, how much will it really cost to rent a truck? Is there a better way to move?
I’m planning a move to Kansas City. What do I need to know?
Let me point out that today we’re focusing on things you should know if you're moving to Kansas City, Missouri—but if you’re moving to Kansas City, KS, be sure to check back later—we’ll have some information for you, too. Though the areas similar because they share a border and are both part of the Kansas City Metropolitan area, they are two different cities in two different states, and you’ll definitely see some differences.
One of the great perks of moving with U-Pack is that you can pack your stuff up and send it off in the moving truck while you take a little mini vaca in your own vehicle. And what better way to spend a few days than planning a camping trip along the way? It’s not a bad way to save money, either.
Sound like a good plan? Check out some of these really cool places to camp.
