You may need to store your belongings for a few days or weeks in the middle of a big move. If your new home isn’t ready when you need it or you have to move out of your old home before you know where you’re moving to, then PODS’ combination of moving and storage services make it your most convenient option.
Portable storage containers come in handy when your move-in and move-out dates don’t perfectly line up—if your lease doesn’t finalize when it’s supposed to or the previous tenants can’t move out on your schedule, for example.
If you use conventional moving and storage services, you have to pack your stuff into a moving truck, drive it to your new location, and unload everything into a storage unit so you can return the truck. When move-in day arrives, you have to rent another truck, pack everything into it from the storage unit, and drive it to your new home. Needless to say, this is time-consuming, expensive, and inconvenient.
If you hire PODS to move and store your belongings, you only have to pack your containers once. PODS can keep your portable storage containers at one of its secure storage facilities until you’re ready for them to be delivered to your new home. Easy peasy.
Plus, you can access your PODS containers while they’re in storage if you called ahead to schedule an appointment.
PODS portable storage containers are made from steel with impact-resistant paneling to keep your belongings safe—whether they’re riding on the back of a delivery truck or sitting in a storage facility. The inside of each PODS container also features tie-down rings so you can secure objects that might sway or rattle on the road.
While individual PODS containers aren’t climate-controlled, they are weather-resistant, and when they’re in storage, PODS keeps them in indoor facilities with regulated temperatures.
