How to Burn the Most Calories Moving

One of the downsides to moving is that it disrupts your routine. You’re planning your moving schedule, making a moving checklist, packing, and focusing on the move. It’s hard to make time for normal mealtimes, exercise and other daily activities. If you’re someone who benefits from a regular workout, you may find it gets dropped from your plans. But guess what? You can get some terrific exercise from the activities involved in moving.

Small Moving Containers

February 16th, 2012 - 4:19 PM

The ReloCube®
U-Pack's small moving container – The ReloCube – is the perfect solution when you're not moving much, or there's no room for a big moving truck at your location. It's 6' x 7' x 8' (lwh) and sits flat on the ground for easy loading and unloading. Just pack it up, lock it, and keep your key. We'll deliver it right to your door, and come get it when you're ready (you get up to three business days to load and unload, or you can store it as long as you need).

And the price is right too.
