As of the 26th, my stuff is in a cube in storage, and I am gone from my Culver City apartment.
I don't know yet how to feel about ABF U-Pack. I wanted to use mobile storage company so I could (a) store my stuff and (b) subsequently move it easily to wherever I end up. I looked at movingscam.com, which said U-Pack was the only one they'd trust (some sketchy billing with PODS); and the Better Business Bureau has a positive listing. However, cube delivery was 2-3pm instead of 8-12am; and cube pickup was first a day late (which would have been catastrophic had I been required to be present) and then ~3pm instead of "first thing in the morning". If their large-scale reliability is good, this is okay. If they are generally careless or unreliable, this is very bad. I will find out in three months, I guess.
(Culver City requires a permit for street storage of containers — the fact that it fits in a parking spot notwithstanding — but luckily I was cautious and gave my permit a day of padding.)
