Moving Prices that Won’t Break the Bank

It’s no secret that moving can be expensive. That’s why so many people, like you, are searching for moving prices that are actually affordable. My best advice for people searching for prices that won’t break the bank is to start getting quotes and comparing prices as early as possible (we recommend at least two months before moving). And while you’re comparing moving prices, you’ll also want to check out what that price includes, so you know exactly what you’re getting for your money.

I recommend starting with a free moving quote from U-Pack®. U-Pack is a nationwide “you pack, we drive” long-distance moving service with prices that often compare to truck rental. In fact, in a post-move survey, 68% of U-Pack customers said they considered renting a truck, but chose U-Pack instead. Let’s explore why price is influencing so many people to move with U-Pack.

U-Pack’s Moving Prices

Like I mentioned above, U-Pack’s prices compare to renting a truck and driving it yourself. You’ll see that there is no additional charge for taxes, fuel or standard liability coverage.  These would be “extras” with truck rental. This fuel estimator tool will show you how much you could potentially spend on gas from point A to point B in a rental truck. Believe me; it can really add up. A move from Atlanta to Oklahoma City can run you at least $400 just for fuel! That’s expensive.

It just makes sense to choose an option like U-Pack where you can pay a price similar to truck rental and not have to drive a single mile in a rental truck.

How U-Pack Moving Prices are Determined

This is the part I think you’ll really like about U-Pack. As you know, when you move long distance with traditional moving companies, you pay for either a specific truck size or how much your belongings weigh. U-Pack determines your moving prices in a completely different way. See, U-Pack charges based on how much space you use.

Using U-Pack’s space estimator tool, you can easily estimate how much space your belongings will take up on U-Pack’s 28 ft. trailer, or how many ReloCube containers your belongings will fill. The less space you use, the less you pay. Pretty simple, right?

For example, if you get a quote for 17 ft. of trailer space, but pack efficiently and load everything into 15 ft. of space, then 15 ft. is what you pay for. With the Cube containers, you can reserve any amount, but only pay for the ones you use. U-Pack customers love the “pay for space” concept and the flexibility that goes with it.
