It seems like a lot of people in my neighborhood are packing up and moving away this year. At one point, back in June, the two houses closest to use were empty and a house a few doors down went up for sale and the owner moved out almost immediately after she sold her house.
The house beside us, Sofie’s – my elderly neighbor, just went up for sale. She had a mild stroke in February and her family spent the summer fixing up the house and they just put it up for sale a week ago. Now another neighbor is selling their home too.
All these neighbors moving away and new neighbors moving in got me thinking about the hassles of moving. It’s a big job and it can be quite expensive to move too, especially if you are moving to a new city or perhaps even a new State.
I just learned of a company that offers what I think is a unique moving system. It’s called U-Pack Moving.
The concept is simple. You contact them regarding a Truck Rental and then on your moving day they’ll deliver a trailer or one of their ReloCubes to your home, you pack the truck with your items and then the company will drive the truck to the location of your new home.
The cost of your move is based on the amount of space your items take up in the trailer or the ReloCubes rather than the weight of your items. You can save a lot of money this way.
Plus, I don’t know about you, but when you rent a moving truck to do a move yourself … well .. someone has to drive it. I know when we moved I wasn’t comfortable driving the truck so my husband had to do all of the driving. Since the U-Pack Moving company drives the truck for you that’s bound to ease some of the stress of a move especially if you’re moving out of State!
If you are planning a move in the near future you might want to go online and get a free quote for their Moving Services or you can call their 1-800 number to get a free quote.
I wonder if any of my neighbors that have moved away have used a moving service like this. It sounds like a great idea.
