ABF U-Pack Freight
ABF U-Pack® is a national freight company that ships household and commercial goods in 28' trailers. ABF U-Pack is the largest freight carrier that has a household goods shipping division. Because of the number of trailers in operation they can offer affordable options for long distance moves.
Important Details About ABF U-Pack Trailers
- Although very affordable, ABF trailers are not made specifically for household goods. Their spring ride suspension generally results in shifting during transit, especially when compared to the air-ride suspension used by Movex or Broadway Express.
- Unlike most transportation companies, ABF does not rent or provide furniture pads. Furniture pads are extremely important for the safe movement of your items and very expensive to purchase. If you choose ABF remember to factor the cost of purchasing furniture pads into your budget.
- Although ABF promotes their 3-5 day delivery range, it is important to note that they do not count weekends, holidays or the day that your trailer is picked up.
