In a culture with an increasingly mobile workforce spread out over a vast country, the logistics of many moving endeavors can be tricky, at best. Fortunately, the moving and storage industry now offers portable pods that can take a lot of the guesswork and narrow time windows out of an already delicate moving situation. Moving and storage pods are basically just reusable storage containers that are dropped off by the rental company that owns the pods at the address of origin, and the renter then fills the pods with their belongings.
These pods can then be picked up and transported by a professional driver directly to a new location, or the filled pods can be stored for a period of time in a secure facility near the city to which you will be moving. This allows quite a bit of flexibility in planning, as many people who find themselves needing to move to a new city far away do not necessarily have a permanent address immediately upon arrival. Simply call the company from whom you have rented the pods when you know when and where the units can be dropped off, and you can then open the pods and reclaim your things upon delivery. A final call to the pods rental company will then see the empty unit taken away to be used by another savvy mover.
These portable pods can be great for temporary storage purposes, as well. If you need to find a place to store a few things while your home or office is being remodeled, for example, pods can simply be dropped off and left for several days or weeks while the job is being completed. Fill and empty the pods on your own time, and the pods rental company will take away the empty unit once all has been said and done. All in all, pods have proven to be a terrific and ingenious addition to the moving and storage industry!
