What is the cheapest moving company?

May 25th, 2012 - 1:47 PM

If you’re looking to move, you’re likely searching for the best deals and asking questions like “So, what is the cheapest moving company?” Understandable. Moving can get expensive, so cheap is good. But, along with a low cost, it’s also important to choose a moving company that is reliable and offers the services you need. U-Pack Moving® most definitely fits that bill!

Self-Move Option
While truck rental may be the self-move service that you’re most familiar with, it’s not your only option for saving money moving (thank goodness). U-Pack is a great self-move alternative. You do some of the work (because having someone else do the packing and loading is NOT going to be the cheapest option), and save money while you’re at it. We drop a moving trailer or moving container off at your home, you pack and load it with your belongings, and then we drive it to your new home. Once it arrives to your new location, simply unload, and we’ll pick up the empty equipment.

Not only is it easy, it’s also affordable. While truck rental rates may seem lower initially, don’t forget that they don’t factor in additional costs like insurance, fuel, taxes and other fees. U-Pack prices include fuel and the driver – and taxes don’t apply! Keep reading to see how U-Pack saves you money!   

Pay for Space Used

With rental trucks, you rent the entire truck. So, let’s say you reserve a 24-foot truck, but when you start loading you figure out that you’re not close to filling it up and can actually fit into 16 feet. You still have to pay for entire truck, and there’s room for your belongings to shift. With U-Pack, you pay only for the space you use. So, if you reserve 20 feet of the trailer, but end up fitting everything into 15 feet, you only pay for 15 feet. We’ll provide a secure divider wall to install after you finish loading, and you’re good to go. Your moving quote includes a per-foot adjustment rate that you can add or subtract to calculate your final price. It’s a great way to move!

Other Options to Consider

Like I mentioned before, when you’re looking for the cheapest moving company you’ll probably want to look beyond just the price. Reliability goes a long way too; it has a huge impact on your stress level and how you spend your time.

Consider this: U-Pack transit time averages 2-5 business days. Many full-service movers take 10-14 days. We understand that your time is valuable, so with U-Pack, you won’t spend weeks waiting on your belongings to arrive.

And then there’s the fact that with U-Pack WE do the driving. You don’t have to worry about driving a bulky rental truck hundreds (sometimes thousands) of miles, or the high cost of fuel.

And don’t forget, U-Pack is reliable. Just check out our 4.5 star rating (out of a possible 5 stars) at epinions.com. With a long history in the transportation industry, ABF is regarded nationwide as one of the safest carriers in the industry.
