If you’re anything like me, only half of the things on your to-do list get done during the day. Sometimes I’m up late trying to get things done that should’ve been completed hours earlier. When you’re planning a move, I can guarantee that your to-do list is going to grow like a middle school rumor.
You’re getting quotes for everything from renting a moving truck to full-service options and self-service options like U-Pack. You’re thinking about moving supplies, travel dates and times, setting up and turning off utilities, enrolling in a new school, buying and selling a home. There’s just so much to do!

Miki Markovich of Ground, Path, and Fruition used U-Pack for her personal move a few years back and had a great experience. So when it came time for Miki to help move her 86-year-old grandmother more than 2,200 miles across the United States, Miki knew U-Pack was the moving company she would trust once more. Here's the awesome part: because U-Pack does the driving, Miki and her grandmother Regina were able to take the road trip of a lifetime without worrying about their household goods.

If you choose a ReloCube move, this is what is what you can expect to have delivered right to your door:
An empty, shiny 6' x 7' x 8' (DWH) container that sits flat on the ground for easy loading and unloading.
The ReloCube's interior dimensions are 70" x 82" x 93". You can reserve as many as you need and pay only for what you use. That means if you reserve three, but you can fit everything into two, you only pay for two—a benefit U-Pack customers LOVE!

PCSing to Hawaii sounds like a dream assignment for many, but when the orders arrive, some families can feel overwhelmed with questions about moving to the islands and island living.

Not to brag, because this doesnt happen very often, and I definitely dont want to jinx it, but Arkansas is experiencing some amazing (granted unseasonal) spring-like weather. Its January and todays high is 68° and its supposed to be in the 70s by the end of the week! This time last year we were about to experience record-breaking snow falls in the area. Well take it!
