Let's Talk About Out of State Moving Companies

July 31st, 2013 - 9:53 AM

What are you looking for in an out-of-state moving company?


Outside of truck rental, you basically have two options when it comes to moving out of state: full-service or “you pack, we drive” companies.

So, can you guess what customers tell us matters most when it comes to selecting the company they’ll go with?

You guessed it. PRICE. 

At the same time, people also want to know that their stuff is cared for and that the moving company will do what they say they’ll do. Unwanted surprises are never good. And that’s why so many people use social media and online reviews to read about and compare out-of-state moving companies before making a decision (which is smart).

If price is a main concern, and you have the ability to do some of the work on your own, the natural choice would be a “you pack, we drive” service like U-Pack.

How U-Pack compares to other out-of-state moving companies

Compared to a traditional full-service moving company, U-Pack is almost always cheaper because you do the loading and unloading. That’s great for people moving on a budget. But what if you can’t do it all?

Glad you asked.

U-Pack has access to a nationwide network of affordable moving crews, so you can get the help you need. Just have them do a little, or a lot – it’s up to you. You’ll normally find that paring loading or unloading help with your U-Pack move still costs less than “traditional” full-service movers.

The “other” factors and how U-Pack compares

When it comes to the “other” factors, U-Pack impresses. 

  • While traditional out-of-state movers can take 4-6 weeks to move your belongings, U-Pack can move you in 2-5 days.
  • With U-Pack, you don’t have to worry about your belongings being co-mingled with other shipments; yours is the only household goods shipment on the trailer.
  • Take three business days to load and unload – there’s no rush!
  • Pay based on the space you use. The less you move, the less you pay. Simple as that.

If you want an affordable, fast, and convenient out-of-state move, U-Pack is the way to go. Compared to the traditional guys, U-Pack’s innovative moving style is hard to beat.
