U-Pack Introduces Discount Moving Rates for Select Locations

National moving service ABF U-Pack Moving introduces significant summer moving discounts for consumers moving from select areas across the United States.

ABF U-Pack Moving introduces special summer discount moving prices for customers moving from select U.S. cities, regardless of the customer’s final destination. U-Pack is offering cheap moving options and moving discounts to help customers reduce moving costs while also adjusting equipment capacity among ABF service centers.

These moving discounts primarily apply to the ReloCube, U-Pack’s portable moving containers, though customers moving from Anchorage, Alaska will receive cheap moving rates when they choose an ABF moving trailer to transport their items.

ReloCube moving discounts are offered for customers:

Moving from Los Angeles
Moving from Denver
Moving from Atlanta
Moving from Portland, OR

“Throughout the year, certain ABF service centers accumulate excess equipment inventory – especially ReloCubes,” says U-Pack Director, Andrew Schweizer. “To keep adequate inventory throughout the country, it sometimes becomes necessary to move ReloCubes at significantly reduced rates. It helps us balance equipment, and of course it helps our customers.”

Consumers searching for a cheap move may not be aware of the discount moving options available to them, especially during the busy summer moving rush. “Many individuals trying to move on a budget assume the only cheap moving option is driving a rental truck,” says Kay Lynn Clay, U-Pack manager. “But most customers moving long distance find that U-Pack prices are comparable to rental truck rates, and they don’t have to drive. Customers moving from these select locations will be able to save even more.”
To receive a special moving discount, customers moving from these locations should call 800-355-1696 for a free moving quote.

Specializing in long distance moving, ABF U-Pack Moving is an affordable do-it-yourself moving company, providing the professional driver and equipment of traditional full-service moving companies at the cost savings of a truck rental. For more information, visit
