Moving in a ReloCube - What to expect
If you choose a ReloCube move, this is what is what you can expect to have delivered right to your door:
An empty, shiny 6' x 7' x 8' (DWH) container that sits flat on the ground for easy loading and unloading.
The ReloCube's interior dimensions are 70" x 82" x 93". You can reserve as many as you need and pay only for what you use. That means if you reserve three, but you can fit everything into two, you only pay for two—a benefit U-Pack customers LOVE!
The ReloCube is custom-built and constructed of steel or aluminum. Each weatherproof container is equipped with tie-down points so you can easily secure your goods for transit. For added security, you can provide your own lock – which remains on the Cube until you remove it at your destination (another benefit customers love!) The lock should be 3/8" – 1/2" diameter and have at least a 2" shank.
Each ReloCube is approximately 320 cubic feet. Its maximum weight limit is 2,500 lbs. One ReloCube will typically hold the contents of a small studio-size apartment (and the loading space is similar to 5 linear feet of our moving trailer). To help determine how many ReloCubes you'll need for your move, consider using a U-Pack space estimator tool, specifically the Room-By-Room Space Estimator.
Delivering the ReloCube
The equipment used to deliver the ReloCube varies depending on where you live. We'll use a 43' flatbed trailer (can deliver 4 at a time), or a 39' drop-deck trailer (can deliver 2 at a time). Your U-Pack representative can tell you what type of delivery equipment to expect in your specific area – 800-413-4799.
ReloCube Parking Requirements
Prior to your moving you should verify temporary parking is available for the ReloCube delivery equipment while the Cubes are being off-loaded and placed. You'll also want to verify parking availability for your ReloCube(s) while they're being loaded/unloaded. The amount of space needed for the delivery equipment depends on the type of equipment being used for delivery. The ReloCubes themselves need one standard parking space per two ReloCubes, just make sure there is a level, paved surface available to place them on (and if you have two in one space, make sure vehicles parked beside the space don't block you from opening the Cube doors). Keep in mind that they will not fit in a garage or under a carport.
Like with our moving trailers, we recommend checking with your local parking authority, HOA, storage facility or apartment management to determine how long the ReloCube(s) can be at your location. You can typically have up to three business days for loading and unloading. If there are parking restrictions in your area, talk to your U-Pack representative about the possibility of a same day drop-off and pick-up or a live load/unload – 800-413-4799.
