U-Haul Moving Help is in so many locations, it couldn’t tell us how many cities it services—so we went the extra mile for you and counted . . . every . . . single . . . one.
U-Haul Moving Help offers services in 1,788 cities from Aberdeen, WA, to Zephyrhills, FL.
What could you do with an extra $40? We ask because that’s how much you’ll save using U-Haul Moving Help (instead of a competitor) for two hours of loading and unloading your rental truck, moving pod, or double-decker bus.
Most companies charge $65 or more per hour for loading and unloading services. A notable exception is TaskRabbit, an online marketplace similar to U-Haul Moving Help, which offers the service at just over $45 per hour.
U-Haul comes in even lower at slightly under $45 per hour. If the price isn’t impressive enough, U-Haul Moving Help also has thousands more locations than TaskRabbit.
Hands down, loading and unloading is U-Haul Moving Help’s most impressive service.
U-Haul Moving Help is one of the few help-for-hire companies that offers packing services—meaning it packs and unpacks your boxes for you. Its packing service rates aren’t the least expensive, but they aren’t the most expensive either.
TaskRabbit is about $10 cheaper per hour, but it has locations in only 31 states.
U-Haul Moving Help is in all 50 states, so if you can’t find a TaskRabbit helper where you live, check for U-Haul Moving Help’s availability. You could save almost $20 per hour over the next nearest-priced competitor.
When you book moving services, you pay U-Haul Moving Help up front for the total projected cost. But U-Haul Moving Help won’t pay the workers until you give the approval to use your assigned payment code when the job is done.
So if your hired help doesn’t show or leaves early, you can refuse to give U-Haul Moving Help your payment code, and your money will stay safe.
At that point, you can try to work things out with the moving service provider, use your payment code to hire other people, or request a refund. You can process refunds via your customer account (on the website only) and expect your money to be returned within five business days.
U-Haul (the moving company) rents moving containers in addition to moving trucks. U-Haul’s U-Box containers are like a moving truck without wheels. A container is dropped off at your home, you fill it with your belongings, and then it is transported to your new home for you to unload.
U-Haul Moving Help workers can pick up and deliver your U-Box containers in addition to loading and unloading them.
