3 Reasons to Consider Storage Pods Over Storage Warehouses

Moving? Relocating for work? How about a massive home-improvement project? Regardless of the situation, you need storage Relx Vape. Typically, the first idea that comes to mind is renting a public storage unit. Before you pick up the phone and reserve one though, consider this: what if that storage unit could be brought right to your front door? Well, it can. Read on.

Welcome to world of storage pods. Relatively speaking, public storage warehouses aren’t much different than storage pods, for eventually, storage pods will end up in a warehouse. The difference being of course, is someone else is going to and from that warehouse, not you. What is that saying, “Time is Money?” Storage pods companies aren’t new; some of them have been around for more then ten years. The public is just beginning to see (literally, in their neighborhoods) the benefits they pose though. So what’s the big deal with storage pods you ask?

  1. Less Hassle – This is the most obvious benefit. The only thing worse than packing a storage unit, is having to drive to and from one. Unless you live in a major city, it’s unlikely you can find a public storage facility within easy driving distance of your residence. And what typically happens when you get there? Unless you’re willing to pay big bucks every month, you’re unit is not going to be easy to access. Matter of fact, there is a very good chance you’ll need to take an elevator, or worse yet, stairs to get to and from your unit. So not only do you have to pack (and unpack) your automobile, but you may have to move the items two or three more times before they’re actually in the unit! On the other hand, storage pods are delivered to your door and dropped off, literally, at your front door. (They can be dropped off anywhere on your property, even some city streets.)
  2. You Only Pay For What You Use – These days we’re always looking for ways to save money, for services that provide good value. Unlike public storage, where you pay for a set amount of space that you may or may not use, pod storage companies offer a very unique benefit: you only pay for what you use. Reserved two pods but only needed one? You only have to pay for that one. The other one simply goes to someone else and you are credited the cost of that unit.
  3. No Trucks Required – Most of us don’t own a pickup truck or cargo van, which means getting to and from storage warehouses with our stuff requires renting a moving truck. Renting a moving truck costs even more money, not to mention the time required to pack (and unpack) the truck. And when was the last time you heard someone praising their rental truck company because everything worked out? Better yet, what kind of shape was that truck in? Was it even going to make it to the storage unit! Have back problems? Not sure you want to lift that 40″ plasma five feet in the air in order to get it into the truck? Sure that ramp helps…a little. What if it’s pouring rain, or snowing? Good luck! Storage pods are placed on the ground (actually, a couple inches off the ground) which means the only lifting involved is that of home to pod.

Storage pods may not be for everyone. Although they are growing in popularity rapidly, you can’t find them in every single small town or city in the US. It’s always important to research the pods storage company near you to find available storage locations. Check out websites such as movingscam.com or city-data.com for real-life reviews.
