Compare prices for moving trucks

The biggest factor when it comes to moving long distance is cost. And I’m sure you’ve probably heard that renting a moving truck is a low-cost option for moving long distance. However, it’s not the only one. Let’s compare prices for moving trucks to alternatives like U-Pack. I think you’ll like what you see!

Compare Moving Truck Rates to U-Pack

When you get a quote from a moving truck company, it will typically include the rate to rent the truck for a set number of days and miles. What’s not included is the fuel, sales tax, and insurance for you, the truck, and your belongings. Those things are all extra. Add them all up and the cost might not be so low anymore.

For example, a long distance move from Dallas to Phoenix in a 20’ rental truck would cost $1,073 for just the truck. Damage protection ($142), sales tax ($100), and fuel ($515) bring the total to $1,830! That’s $757 extra you would pay on top of the rate to rent the truck…yikes!

The same move with U-Pack®, where you do the loading/unloading and U-Pack does the driving, would cost $1,696 and you don’t have to drive or pay any of those truck rental extras! You see, with U-Pack, you get it all included in one low rate – an experienced driver, fuel, sales tax, and standard liability coverage. Now that’s a deal!

Compare Moving Truck Service to U-Pack

Not only does U-Pack have rates competitive with truck rental, U-Pack also blows the moving truck competition away with their excellent service. See how below:

  • trailer or moving container (called a ReloCube®) is delivered direct to your door for loading and unloading. With truck rental, you have to pick it up and return it yourself.
  • You get three business days for loading and unloading your trailer or Cube. Say goodbye to deadline stress!
  • Because U-Pack does the driving for you, you can get to your home safely and comfortably in your personal vehicle.
  • You only pay for the space you use. Unlike truck rental where you’re stuck with one truck size, you can control your rate of your U-Pack move by only paying for the linear feet you use in the trailer or the number of Cubes you actually use.
