Pretty much anything DIY (do-it-yourself) is cheaper, including DIY moving. If you are looking for a moving service where “u move it,” you are probably looking for a cheaper way to move. U-Pack is a great self-moving service for long distance moves, where you do the packing and loading, but then U-Pack does all the driving.
