U-Pack - Reviewed & Compared


When it comes to moving, there are generally two types of people – the ones that want the movers to do it all, and ones who want to pack and load themselves. U-Pack is a great option for the “pack and load ourselves” crowd, and can save you a lot of money in the process.

The Good

Their pricing is fantastic. In essence, you pay for only the space you use, so if you pack and load efficiently, you can really save. This allows you a lot of control over what you pay, and may even help in a “do we really need to take that?” aspect. U-Pack will drop off a container, pick it up when packed, drive it to your new home, and come take it away when you’ve emptied it. Easy as that! Couple this with great customer service, and you have a winner.
