If you are in the process of getting ready to relocate and you would prefer to not rely on a moving company to load and pack for you based on the delicate nature of your items, you might want to consider using pods as an alternative option. Using pods can help you to tackle the move yourself, still have the benefit of a driver, and help you to load it at the times that are most convenient for you. In fact, you might find that pods are so much easier than using a moving truck that you will always keep them in the back of your mind if you ever needed to move again.
When you call in for moving pods, a company will set a delivery date with you and then drop them off at your house. Because moving pods are a modified version of the containers that are on the back of a truck, you will find them most spacious. More importantly, pods can be dropped off anywhere that the truck can drive and that means that there is a good chance you can get them situated very close to your doorway so that you have less walking back and forth to do with your belongings.
Because pods are paid for monthly much like a storage unit, you will never feel rushed when you are getting ready to move. Whether you choose to load the unit over the course of one weekend or work an hour a day for a few weeks, pods will be paid for the same way with no hidden fees. Because you will not have to worry about hourly fees, mileage, and other nonsense, you will know upfront what the costs are.
Once you are ready to make the move, you can call to have your pod shipped straight to your next home. When the driver gets it there, they will drop it off in the same manner that it was dropped off at your old home. Once there, you will have the same pressure free requirements to unload it. Once you do, you can have it hauled off for good.
You will find that this can be a superior way to relocate. You can still rely on a professional for the driving, but the rest can be done your way. You will feel accomplished knowing you tackled the bulk of your move.
