    Default ABF U-Pack a good idea?

    I have a relative that is considering moving a full household of items across the country from Indiana to California. Is ABF U-Pack a good idea? Do you see a lot of the freight that comes through U-Pack undamaged? What are your opinions on ABF U-Pack? How much of ABF's freight is U-Pack?

    U-pack is a great way to save money. I have never seen any damage they supply a bulkhead to seperate the freight from there stuff.

    I don't have first hand knowledge about it, but from what I have seen and heard it is very good. They drop off the relocube and you pack it the way you want it. They hold several rooms of furniture, it is surprising what you can fit in them. Then they come back and pick it up, transport it to the nearest city and deliver it for you to empty. What could be easier? If it is a bigger load, they will drop off a pup and let you load that, then return to pick it up. But if there is any damage, it is because of the way you loaded it. Abf will not cause any damage to it. It will be sealed and away from abf's freight. Seems like the best way to get your belongings moved from one place to another outside of using a moving company? I do not have any idea of what the charge for it is?

    I used it twice in my move from the NE to Atl-filled 3/4 of a pup then 3 relo cubes 4 months later. By far cheaper and better than any thing else! just be sure its loaded to ride and there will be no problem!!

    I know a guy who moved from Southern California to Missouri (God's Country) a few years back and then it was roughly a buck a mile..

    You know a Teamster had to come up with the idea of "U-Pack",, after all Somebody else slaves away loading and securing the load and then a Teamster just comes by and picks it up and leaves...

    Had a cutomer who moved almost a full tailer cross country, can't remember for sure but his bill was under $4000. He told me Atlas quoted $14,000 for basically the same move.
