January 8th, 2013 - 2:35 PM

That’s a tough question to answer without seeing your belongings. And if you're like most people, the thought of a stranger walking through your home to do an in-home estimate isn't very comforting. Here’s some help though... U-Pack provides excellent Space Estimator Tools to help you determine the amount of space you’ll need. Our favorite is the Room-by-Room Space Estimator because you can walk through your home and enter the items you'll be moving, then calculate the total at the end.

What is the best way to move to Hawaii?

January 3rd, 2013 - 9:10 AM

As you know, when you’re moving to Hawaii, your moving options are limited (there’s no driving a rental truck across the ocean). That leaves you with the “full-service” option and the “you pack, we drive” option. When you begin getting moving quotes, you’ll probably notice that full-service moving is the most expensive way to move to Hawaii. If affordability is your goal, and you would like to find a service that offers flexible moving options, excellent customer service and fast transit times, I think you’ll find that U-Pack® is the ideal solution.
