Pods (portable on-demand storage) are a moving and storage system that allows you to drop off, pick up, and transport your stuff virtually anywhere you want. It can be used as a moving truck and storage unit all in one.
Pods are a great alternative to renting a moving truck and/or storage for your upcoming move for the following reasons:
*They alleviate some of the legwork by physically transporting your "stuff" from one location to the other.
*You don't have to drive a massive moving or renting truck around town, maneuver it into tight spaces, back it up into your driveway, and fill it up with gas when you're done.
*The pods themselves remain at ground level for easy loading and unloading.
*You are not on any time constraints, so there are no "late fees" or "overage charges" for taking longer than you thought. You usually have up to a month to load and unload at your leisure.
*Only you have a key to your pod which means you are always in full control of your possessions.
*They are very cost-effective.
