Moving? Tell your family and friends first!
In today’s technological society, it’s easy to think that you can tell everyone you know about any big announcement with the click of a button. With a Facebook status, tweet, or blog post you can tell virtually the whole world you’re moving. However, before you do that, you may want to personally tell your family, friends and coworkers about the move. When you’ve got big news like that, it’s wise to tell those close to you first, then shout it to the world. So how do you let people know you’re moving?

Do you love the zoo, too?
When I was a kid, I used to love going to the zoo—to the point that I actually tried to talk my parents into moving close by. To this day, I still love going (my husband I just visited the Tulsa Zoo this month!) I have a feeling I’m not alone. If you’re moving this summer and plan to take a road trip along the way, maybe one of these awesome places will be en route to your new destination!

Want to use Portable Containers for Moving?
When you’re moving long distance, one of the most convenient ways to get your belongings across the country is by using portable moving containers. They’re super easy to load, and you don’t have to worry about driving a moving truck across the country (some people consider that a HUGE perk!). But one issue you may run into if you’re looking into using one of these handy containers is that there are several options to choose from; it can get a bit difficult to decide which one to use. Let’s wade through your options.

Volunteer! Make a difference in your community
Gandhi once said “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” If you’re hoping to get connected and make a difference in the community you’re moving to, why not start the search for volunteer opportunities. I think you’ll find that every community in the nation is looking for people willing to help out in some capacity.
If you’ve volunteered before, you may be familiar with organizations to contact. But if you haven’t, these tips may help you find places to volunteer in your community.

Celebrate with a moving coupon!
What better time to move than when the sun is shining and the kids are out of school? It’s National Moving Month, and that means it’s time to kick off the busiest season of the year for moving!
Did you know that somewhere around 37 million people will move this year? 37 million people… that’s a lot of moving trucks! Of that 37 million, most of the moves actually take place in May, June, July, and August—which is why you’ll often hear this time of year referred to as “peak moving season.” That's certainly what we’ve experienced at U-Pack! Last year 43.5% of our customers moved during those months.
