Many times, when we prepare to move to a new apartment or home, we are faced with a time of limbo. We are supposed to be out of our house or apartment at a certain date, yet we can’t move into our new home or apartment until another date. Or we are moving to a home of a different size, and are forced to get rid of excess items from our old place. All of us have possessions that are irreplaceable, they have value to us because of the memories that they bring, and we will cherish and keep these items forever. Likewise, most, if not all of us are also holding on to a healthy amount of material that holds little or no intrinsic value or purpose. We keep items simply because we can. During the transition period it can be time-consuming to try and sort through the items that are considered valuable, versus the items that can be discarded and have already served their purpose.
Luckily, portable storage containers (or “pods”) can offer a great solution to the moving woes that many of us face as we try and get our possessions from one location to another. Pods offer a portable storage solution that allow us to get our items taken care of while we prepare to pack up and move from one location to another. Pods can be a great storage option, whether we are moving a home, office, or other supplies that we are taking care of as we relocate.

Most companies that use these types of mobile containers recognize the need for portability and either offer relocation services, or are able to refer you to companies that can help the relocation process. They are also incredibly easy to use. A pod will get dropped off at your home, apartment, or office; you pack up everything you need (this can range from small boxes to large items like furniture or appliances). Once you are finished, the company will drive over pick up the pod, and it will either be stored for you at one of their facilities, or it will be dropped off at your new home or office.
This portable storage option is both convenient and affordable. It will give you the opportunity to make your move much less stressful. You don’t have to worry about a moving truck or insurance while you transport your items. Also, if you are in a transitory period, you won’t have to rent a moving truck only to unpack your stuff into a storage unit and then rent a truck again and move the items to your new location a few months later. The portable storage bin option is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to get you and your stuff from one place to another.
