Determining your ReloCube cost

Using a U-Pack ReloCube® is a convenient way to move your household goods long distance. They sit ground level for easy loading, can be delivered straight to your door and are priced per container. But how much do they cost? And what happens if you need another CubeTM? The following information will break down ReloCube costs, provide examples and give you helpful ways to cut the price.

Breakdown of ReloCube prices 

There is no flat rate for using a ReloCube. Instead, the cost is based on several factors, like the size of your home (i.e., how many containers you’ll need), the move date, the delivery option (door-to-door or terminal-to-terminal), and the origin and destination locations. Your quoted ReloCube price covers the moving container, transportation, delivery, fuel and standard liability coverage. For an additional cost, you also can add storage, loading help or guaranteed delivery if needed. 

ReloCube quote examples 

To give you an idea of how much ReloCubes cost, let’s take a look at some examples.
Note: Rates fluctuate daily. The prices shown here were current at the time of this posting. 

Example 1 

For this example, we’re moving a three-bedroom home 319 miles from Dallas, Texas, to Little Rock, Arkansas. Door-to-door delivery for three ReloCubes would cost $742. A terminal-to-terminal delivery would cost $482, saving you $260. 

Example 2 

In this example, we’re moving a three-bedroom home from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, to Memphis, Tennessee (468 miles). For door-to-door delivery, three ReloCubes cost $844. If you choose a terminal-to-terminal delivery, you’ll pay $549 (a savings of $295). 

Example 3 

A cross-country move from Portland, Oregon, to Tampa, Florida is 3,049 miles. If you’re moving a two-bedroom home with door-to-door delivery, the cost is $2,972. For a terminal-to-terminal move, you’ll pay $2,424, which saves you $548.  

What if I need another ReloCube? 

If you’re loading and discover you need another ReloCube, just call us, and we’ll add it to your reservation. But keep in mind, you’ll have to pay for the extra Cube along with another delivery charge. 

To prevent this from happening, we encourage you to reserve one more Cube than you think you’ll need. That way, if you need it, it’s there, and you won’t have to pay for another delivery charge. And if don’t use it, you aren’t charged for it! We’ll just pick it up for free when we come get the Cubes you loaded. 

How to reduce ReloCube costs 
If your ReloCube quote is a little higher than expected, here are a few ways to lower it: 

  • Choose terminal-to-terminal delivery. As you can see in the examples, a terminal-to-terminal delivery can save you hundreds of dollars. While it does require a little extra work on your part (to load and unload at the local service center), it can be worth it if you’re trying to stay within a specific budget. 
  • Check the move date. Just like hotels or airfare, moving companies have days and seasons that are less busy, and therefore more affordable. If you’re flexible, a U-Pack moving consultant can help determine which dates are cheapest during your time frame. 
  • Use fewer Cubes. If you’re able to get rid of items and use fewer ReloCubes, you’ll pay less.  
  • Reserve online. When you reserve online, $25 is automatically deducted from your move!
