Moving can be an immense undertaking for anyone. Thus, moving is said to be the third most stressful life even, behind death and divorce. For those people who are planning a move, especially long distance movers, it is always wise to begin the process of cleaning, sorting, discarding, and packing well ahead of time. By having as much done ahead of time, the some of the unavoidable stress endured by long distance movers can be alleviated. Pods have been around for a few years now, but are still a relatively new way to approach an imminent move.
Pods make the job easier on long distance movers by allowing them the convenience of sorting through and packing unessential personal effects days or weeks prior to the actual moving date. The popularity of pods is illustrated in their springing up in neighborhoods all over town. While pods have many uses for anyone looking for temporary storage, they are particularly handy for long distance movers. After long distance movers arrange a pod rental, it is delivered to their residence by the pod company. Once it is delivered via a flatbed truck, it can be rented for days or weeks.
While in possession of the pod, the user may work at their own pace and fill the pod with the personal effects that will be moved to the new home. When the day of the move arrives, long distance movers can contact the pod company, who, in turn, will load the pod onto their truck, secure it, and transport it safely to the new residence. Pods make it possible to pack and load at the same time and ahead of time. Once personal effects are loaded into the pod, the long distance mover will not have to handle them again until it is time to unpack. Pods offer a simple, efficient, and convenient way to approach moving.
