I originally gave my experience 1 star, but just added another start after my update. Basically, it took me 2 weeks to receive my belongings in a move from New York to Miami. Granted, I did ask for an address change, and the truck arrived within 5 business days. However, I still don't understand why it took U-Pack and the terminal 4 days to process an address change. I feel that I only got a response from the company once I posted a poor review on Yelp and on their Facebook. I guess it could have been worse.See my original post written 10 business days after my move. (When I still was not getting a response from their representatives.)

Okay, so this is the best deal for cross-country moving, but you need to know a few things to make this work.  We compared pricing, and managed to move everything from New York to California for $2,000 less than the next best option (a PODS container).  Here are my suggestions:1. If you live anywhere that can't have a full-on trailer park on your street, hire a moving company to pick up your things at your place and take it to the ABF terminal.  You'll save a couple hundred dollars from ABF, which you can use to pay movers (who you were probably going to hire anyway to help you get your stuff out of your house/apartment).  2.  Wrap all furniture in moving blankets, and WRAP THEM IN PLASTIC WRAP (including the bottom).  Also, pack most of your boxes so that if they get turned sideways, it will be okay.  Your movers might need to play a little "Tetris" with your boxes, and anything that isn't glass / plates / fragile might need to be turned sideways to pack it in tight.  3.  Bring a ladder, bungee cords, and packing straps with you to the ABF terminal.  Go ahead and hook the straps and bungee cords to the top sides of the trailer (using the ladder) when you arrive, before you put anything in the trailer.  Pull them a few feet out and hook them to the side so that you can access them once you have some boxes in there.   Throw down a tarp on the bottom of the trailer if you have one.  The bottom of the trailer might get a little wet, and this (along with wrapping your furniture in moving blankets and plastic wrap) will save you from having warped / ruined furniture.  Once all your things are in, you'll need to use the bungee cords and straps to secure your stuff, because it WILL shift backwards during the trip, and you don't want the partition being the only thing holding all your stuff when you go to unload it (because it will all fall on you).  4.  You are going to need movers and/or a friendly union worker at the terminal to secure the partition.  The partition consists of two 8-foot-tall heavy wooden doors with metal braces that lock into the trailer walls and connect to each other.  The partition separates your stuff from the commercial goods that they'll put in after you load your stuff in.  If we hadn't had a friendly ABF union worker secure the partition for us (along with our movers), I'm not sure how we would have done it.  5.  When you unload at the ABF terminal at your destination, hire movers to help you unload the trailer into their moving truck and take your stuff to your new home.  Again, you'll save a couple hundred bucks that you can use to hire movers at your arrival city.  Also, they can back their moving truck up to the trailer, which is very helpful.  If they don't have a ladder, they'll have to climb on your furniture to pull down whatever boxes were stacked to the 9-foot-tall ceiling, which is how our weak IKEA dresser broke.  It was the only thing that broke in the move, but it was already on it's way out, so we didn't feel too bad about losing it.  We did the whole ABF move for $2,680 plus movers each side, which ended up costing about $3,500 for a cross-country move from New York to California!  Our movers packed our boxes to the ceiling, which meant we only had to pay the 5 foot minimum U-Pack trailer charge.  You can do it too - just plan ahead!

I have nothing but good things to say about my experience with ABF Relo-cube moving from Brooklyn. You do need to be flexible as timing windows on the days of drop-off and delivery can be wide but I definitely recommend this service! We were able to fit a good deal into one Relo-cube, it is surprisingly big.  Dave, the deliverer on the Brooklyn end was so helpful and it was a real pleasure to meet him.

Well, my move with U Pack went pretty well until it came to setting up the delivery in Brooklyn.  U Pack delivered a trailer to my home in NC on the scheduled day.  I had local people load my trailer and it was picked up and delivered to the terminal in Brooklyn.  I was not aware at the time I scheduled the move that U Pack cannot or will not drop a trailer in the NYC area.  There may be some law that requires this. Regardless, I feel that I should have been told about this ahead of time.  When I called to schedule the delivery in Brooklyn, I was given a four hour window for the delivery.  They were not willing to tighten that up, so I had to have movers available at $85.00 an hour.  Probably a good way to move if you are not living in an area where the trailer won't be left.

Great overall experience with attention to customer service. From the person who brought our cubes in San Francisco, to the person who delivered it (Cliff) to us in Brooklyn, everyone was accommodating and extremely easy to deal with. The dispatch was great as well, as they gave me a 3 hour time window, but said the driver could call 30 minutes before arriving which they always did. We also had a couch delivered by Mike a few days after we moved in, and after seeing the shoddy hand cart that my wife and I were going to use to bring the sofa up to our place, he insisted on bringing it up himself on his hand cart. This moving process was painful at times, but dealing with ABF has been a pleasure. They are also most of the time priced better than the competition. Your best bet is to call and get a quote.
