Looking for moving discounts?
It’s no secret people want to save as much money as possible when moving. After all, long distance moving costs can add up quickly and nobody wants to spend more than they have to. If you’re looking for ways to save big on your move, try a moving service like U-Pack®! We offer our customers many opportunities to save. You save by packing and loading your belongings, then we handle the driving through an efficient transportation system that allows us to pass the extra cost savings on to you. Whether you’re an extreme coupon clipper or just looking to save a few extra dollars, look to U-Pack for moving coupons and other money-saving options.

Additional ways to save money
U-Pack customers have the potential to save hundreds on their move without using coupons or discount codes. Explore these other practical options to get the best deal.
Choose the right move date. You know how airline ticket prices vary depending on the time of the year? This same supply-and-demand principle applies to moving companies. During our peak season (April through September), there’s a greater demand for equipment. Try scheduling your move during the fall and winter (October through March) to enjoy cheaper rates. If you need to move during the summer, it’s usually best to avoid moving at the end of the month and around holidays. A U-Pack consultant can help you choose the right date for your situation.
Move only what you need. When you move in a rental truck, you have to pay for use of the entire truck (whether you completely fill it or not). U-Pack does it better! We charge by how much space you use in our trailer or the number of ReloCube® containers you fill — which means the less you pack, the more you’ll save. Get rid of unused items by trashing, selling or donating them. Then use our space estimator tool to see the amount of space you’ll need in the moving equipment.
Buy discounted moving supplies. Check out the U-Pack box store and get FREE shipping on all orders. Browse through our inventory of moving kits, boxes and supplies for your packing and loading essentials (you’ll notice that many of our products are permanently discounted). Combine these low prices with free shipping and you’ll save a good amount on packing and loading merchandise.
Load/unload at the terminal. Save even more on your move by loading and/or unloading at the local service center. Terminal to terminal moves can save you up to $300! Ask a U-Pack consultant for more information by calling 800-413-4799.
U-Pack price vs. truck rental coupons
Think using moving coupons on a truck rental is a more affordable option? Let’s look at an example to see how prices compare. Say you’re moving a two bedroom home from Memphis, Tennessee to Portland, Oregon – a 2,249 mile drive – and want to compare U-Haul® to U-Pack.
- The cost to rent a 20’ U-Haul truck for this example is $2,588, but we’ll pretend you found a U-Haul coupon that takes $25 off, giving you a total of $2,563
- The cost of fuel (found using the rental truck fuel calculator) - $749
- Safemove® truck rental insurance - $140
- U-Haul environmental fee - $5
Before taxes, it would cost $3,457 to rent a U-Haul and drive it yourself — even with a coupon. Be sure to also consider hotel, food and toll costs you’ll encounter during travel.
This same move using two U-Pack ReloCube containers would cost $3,021. That includes the driver, fuel, sales tax, road tolls and insurance coverage. U-Pack is hundreds of dollars cheaper for this move — and you don’t have to drive!
Note: Rates may differ based on the time of year, the day of the week, where you’re moving from and to and how much you’re moving.
