Using Moving Pods
Did you know that companies like Box-n-Go offer a truly mobile storage and moving solution? The beauty of moving pods (if this is what you prefer to call them) is that you can use them for a dual purpose. Say you want to keep some of your items in storage, but you eventually want to take them with you to another state. By contacting a company like Box-n-Go, you can arrange for exactly that to happen.
How Does It Work?
The process of using moving pods is very simple. You contact the company and pick a container size, they send the container to your home and you fill it up. You can take a week or two if you want – there is no rush. When you have filled up the container, you call the company and they send a team over to pick it up.
With pods moving, you must specify where you want your pod to go. There are a few choices. You can have your item sent directly to your new address. The team will tell you when it is scheduled to arrive. Or you can choose to have it kept at a storage facility the company owns.
Temporary or Long-Term Storage
With pods moving, you can have your items stored for as long as you want. Say you are moving. You are giving up your current home, but you are not sure where you will live in the new city. Maybe you will rent a small apartment for three to six months, then move into a bigger home.
You cannot fit all your items there. You do not have to. With cheap moving pods, you can keep your items at a secure, guarded facility until you are ready for them.
When you want your items, contact the cheap moving pods company and they will have your container delivered to your new address. Or have them move it to their storage facility near your new location, so you can access the pod and slowly take out items over a few months.
What you are getting with cheap moving pods is complete flexibility. It is an affordable all-in-one moving and storage solution!
