Somewhere between 12 and 15 percent of the population moves every given year. And every single move has its trials and tribulations. There is no easy move. Deconstructing your life and building it back up somewhere else is stressful, difficult, and time-consuming. So if you’re one of the 12 to 15 percent, do what you can to make your move easier. A great first step is to use storage and moving pods.
Truck rental companies keep you on a tight timetable. You must pickup the truck at this time, and return it promptly at this time. Moving pods are much more laid back, allowing you to take your time filling the unit rather than trying to get everything done in a morning. When you’ve loaded up all your boxes and furniture, you call the driver to come pick it up. Simple.
And you don’t have to drive an inch in anything but your own vehicle. Many people are terrified of the notion of driving a huge, cumbersome, unfamiliar truck on the interstate highways. Moving pods companies do all the driving for you, using experienced, professional drivers. All you have to do is tell them where you’re moving, and your moving pod will be waiting when you get there.
But the convenience doesn’t stop there. If your new home needs renovation, you can use moving pods as storage while you finish the work. Why move furniture into a room you just plan on renovating soon anyway? Save the work and only move it once. And you intend to hold a garage sale, but your move takes place in the fall or the winter, you can safely store the items to be sold in the moving pods facility until yard sale season.
Moving and storage pods can’t take all the stress out of moving. But they can make the whole process a little bit easier on your schedule, your family, and your peace of mind.
