What Are Storage Pods?
Storage pods, also often referred to as storage containers, portable storage units, and portable storage containers, are enclosed containers used to move and store your belongings. They vary in size, material and durability, depending on the company providing the container. While there is a company called PODS®, that rents storage pods, there are numerous other options available for portable storage.
So how, you might ask, does this work? It’s surprisingly simple, and far less complicated than renting and driving a moving truck. In most instances, people rent these storage pods as part of their moving process, and store any excess belongings with these pods after their move is completed. If that’s what you’re looking for, then you use a simple form like the one on this page to let us know where you’re moving from, where you’re moving to, when and where your move will take place, and how many containers you need (our containers hold 1-1.5 rooms worth of belongings).
If on the other hand you just have a few things (or a ton of things) you want to store locally, you just let us know where you are located, and we can help you to determine if there is a storage facility nearby. We have dozens of storage facilities all over the country, and the odds are good that there’s one close to you. In this scenario, we deliver the desired number of storage pods to your home, you fill them at your leisure, and then let us know when it’s time to pick them up.
After that, if you ever need to access your storage containers, just let us know and we’ll make them available (you can either access them locally at our storage facility, or have them delivered back to you for unloading).
What Makes This Such a Great Option?
First and foremost, we’re known for convenience. The hassle of finding and picking up a moving truck, loading and unloading it (have you tried hauling heavy stuff up one of those wobbly ramps? Yeah, no thanks), and then getting the truck back without having to pay for phantom damages is horrific. With us, the containers come to you, when and where you want them, and then leave again just as easily. We provide the absolute best balance between low-cost and low-hassle moving and storage.
Second, there’s no rush. You can take a few hours to load your containers or a few days. It’s entirely up to you and your schedule. Our containers fit easily in fairly small spaces, and are highly weather resistant, so it’s safe to leave them outside while you load and unload.
Our containers are secure, so you can lock them up when they’re at your home, and when they’re in storage as well. On top of the container locks, our storage facility is secure as well, so your belongings are very well protected.
