Everyone with a recent memory of moving knows that moving is a pain. In fact, after death and divorce, moving is supposedly the third most stressful event that one might experience in their lifetimes. For long distance movers, the stresses related to moving become considerably greater. However, regardless of distance, movers now have the convenience of Pods to help make their move as efficient and painless as possible. Although moving is never easy, Pods can at least help to make the packing part less stressful.
When facing a move, movers have a lot going on in their lives besides the packing and the physical aspects related to transporting their possessions. Often times, movers have many loose ends to tie up regarding the jobs they are leaving, the new jobs that they will be starting, and everything related to changing homes and addresses. In fact, with Pods, the physical part of moving may be the easiest part for movers. Many moving companies provide some version of Pods, which are large, portable storage container units, which are made of durable steel, and come in different sizes.
Once family movers decide that they would like to use pods, they simply contact a moving company that supplies Pods, and the company will deliver them to the residence of the movers. Pods are usually delivered to the movers residence via flatbed truck. Once the Pods are dropped off, the movers can rent them for as long as they would like. This could be as little as a couple of days to many weeks. However, the best part about Pods is that they allow family movers to sort through their belongings, discard the items they do not want, and pack the rest into the Pods.
Once the Pods are loaded, the personal effects do not need to be handled again until the moving companies deliver them to the new home or destination. In the meantime, the personal possessions will be securely locked away in the Pods, rather than cluttered about the home. When the big day approaches, and a moving date is firm, if the movers have not done so already, they will contact the moving company and finish making the moving arrangements. When the day of the move actually arrives, the moving company will load the Pods upon a flatbed truck and transport them to the new address, even if it is across the country.
