Moving companies with military discounts
Most moving services have some kind of military discount program, but the way they work will differ. You might find a total percentage discount or a clear-cut dollar amount deduction. It can be tough to compare the actual impact of these discounts because it depends on the cost of the service and any extra fees.
For example, U-Pack offers $50 off military moves with the discount code MIL50 (for all service members, past and present). PODS® gives 10% off to verified service members, Budget® truck rental gives 20% off to those traveling with orders, and Penske® gives a 10% discount to active duty and veterans.
But while 20% off your Budget truck rental may sound like the best discount, it doesn’t include the additional costs like fuel and travel. On the opposite end, U-Pack rates include everything (moving equipment, transportation, liability coverage, fuel), so there are no extras to worry about. To compare savings, you’ll have to gather quotes and estimates. Get a free U-Pack quote online or by calling 844-362-5303844-594-3077, and be sure to mention our military discount.
Discounted DITY move rates
Along with a discount, U-Pack allows you to stretch the savings by providing affordable rates and flexibility. U-Pack prices are based on the space you use. We handle the driving (and getting weight tickets, if you need them), so you can focus on moving your family and not have to worry about spending hours behind the wheel of a rental truck or paying extra for fuel.
U-Pack also offers flexibility based on the space you use. If you less space than estimated, the rate will decrease. And if you need more space when loading, it’s there to use (and you’ll know how your price will change for every extra linear foot you use).
The discounted U-Pack rates may even allow you to put money back in your pocket when doing a personal procured move, or PPM. As opposed to a military mover, where the government pays that company to move you, doing a PPM means a little more work, but it can actually make you money. If the price you pay for your move is lower than your authorized reimbursement amount, you keep the change. That’s where the $50 U-Pack military discount can really make a difference!
