We mentioned a fun Military Appreciation-related contest coming up soon, and the time has arrived! Yesterday we launched the Military Appreciation Photo Contest on U-Pack’s Facebook page!
Just submit a snapshot of yourself with your favorite military service member (in uniform), and once it’s approved, Facebookers can vote on the pic they like best. The photo with the most “likes,” when May 31st at 12:00 PM rolls around, wins. So get all of your friends and family to vote!

It’s Flashback Friday! Each week we take a look back at posts that readers have found helpful in the past. Since we're celebrating Military Appreciation Month in May, we’ll be spending a lot of time on all things military related throughout the month. Today’s post – DITY Move – is one from way back (it was first posted in 2008). We've made a few updates to make the information current, and I think you'll find it very helpful, especially if you're planning a DITY move soon. Happy Friday!

Fourteen years ago, Congress designated May as the month for Americans to recognize and honor all of the men and women who have so bravely served our country – past, present and future. And that honor is certainly deserved.
Here at U-Pack, we want to raise awareness about the month and recognize service members, veterans and their families. Thank you. Thank you for your service, your sacrifice and your commitment – it does not go unnoticed.

Summer is just around the corner, and you know what that means? People are moving! Beginning in May, and moving into September, you’ll see more moving trucks in people’s driveways, at storage facilities, and on the interstates than you will any other time of the year. These are, by far, the most popular months of the year for moving. But they’re also popular for something else – storage – more specifically, portable storage.

It’s Flashback Friday! Each week we take a look back at a post that’s been helpful to our readers in the past. Today’s flashback is all about boxes and moving supplies. They’re something everyone who’s moving needs, so it was an obvious choice! Happy Friday!

It’s Flashback Friday! Each week we take a look back at a post that’s been helpful to our readers in the past. Today’s flashback is for all of those folks looking for ways to move on a budget. It’s all about cheap moving companies. Happy Friday!
Don’t we wish that all moving companies were cheap moving companies – especially in this economy? I think yes. But, here’s the big question: Is cheaper always better? Sometimes yes. Sometimes no.
Sometimes when it comes to cheap moving companies, you get what you pay for.

Have you found yourself moving to another city without a job, and now you’re wondering “Where should I start?” In today’s tough economy, personal initiative is more important than ever. It’s not unusual to have hundreds of applications per any available job; so your job is to convince the hiring company that you’re the perfect candidate for the position.
Helpful tips for moving to another city without a job:

What are your reasons for moving to a new city – brand new job, a job transfer, getting closer to family, getting married, restarting your life? Whatever has you moving, the first order of business is to get a plan.
I know; we’re always talking about plans around here. But experience tells us that when it comes to something as big as a move to a new city, knowing the how, when, and where of what’s going to happen is a huge game-changer.
Start researching moving companies.

I wish there was a simple answer to that question. Though it leans toward being as complicated the age-old “What is the meaning of life?” question. But here’s what I can tell you (with confidence): the best place to start is by getting moving quotes. It sounds simple, doesn’t it? Before you can figure out which service is most affordable, you’ll need to have prices to compare. Just make sure to start early; I recommend at least 30-60 days in advance. That gives you plenty of time to research, weigh the pros and cons of each mover and make sure you’re getting all of the services you need (while still staying within your budget).
