Moving out of an old home and into a new home is among the most stressful times in the lives of individuals or families. The longer a family has lived at the current residence, the more difficult it will be to prepare for the move. On top of the the emotional and sentimental aspects of moving that must be considered, very prospect of clearing out a home after many years and, perhaps, children, can be immense and overwhelming. In such a situation, it may be more convenient to utilize a service that offers more than your typical long distance movers. One convenient alternative is moving and storage pods.
Pods are similar to the shipping containers that are brought ashore by large shipping vessels, loaded upon flatbed trailers, and pulled cross country by tractor trailer. Pods are transported in a similar fashion, but are created with the convenience of private individuals in mind. For example, when planning a long distance move, perhaps cross country, an individual may require more time to clear out their residence; but, at the same time, he or she might want to be able to clean, purge, and pack their clutter at the same time. Pods allows a person to achieve each of these things at once.
When the time to move approaches, the person who is moving only needs to contact long distance movers that offer storage options like pods, and request a pod be delivered to their residence. The pod, or a couple of pods, whatever suits the customers purpose, are brought to and dropped at the residence. From this point the pods can remain the residence, and be filled with packed personal effects, until the day that the move occurs. When a move date is certain, the customer can simply phone the moving company that supplied the pod or pods, and arrange for the pods to be delivered to their new residence. The moving company will place the pods on a flatbed truck, secure them properly and safely, and drive them to wherever the new residence may be.
