When Moving, Make it as Easy as Possible Renting a Pod Will Do that for you

By on July 3, 2013

Pods

Just like paying taxes and going to the doctor, no one wants to move. But sometimes you have no choice. Maybe you have bought your dream house. Or your lease is up and it is time to switch apartments. It could be a military move, or a move for a job. Which, by the way, if the job move is more than 50 miles away, you may be able to make a tax deduction, so save your receipts and ask your tax guy.

As terrible as it is, everybody moves. Some people move just down the street. According to a Pew Research Center study, 37 percent of Americans have never actually moved from their home town. And we saw a decline in numbers at the start of the Great Recession: between 2007 and 2008, only 34 million people moved. That is the smallest number of movers since between 1959 and 1960. But those numbers are climbing right back up with the housing market, because in 2010 6.7 million households moved. A quick, helpful hint for a long distance move: have each family member pack up their own bag of necessities and personal essentials, making it like a little vacation trip. It makes sure that everyone has just what they need, and it helps to make a stressful event a little more fun.

Regardless of how far you are going, consider using some moving pods this time. Pods moving is when you rent a big portable storage unit (think about those storage rental joints, the big rectangle boxes. Now think of that being hauled around by a crane. Voila. Instant pods storage). You then fill the empty pod with all of your belongings, safely packed and tucked so nothing shifts too much. Once it is packed and ready to go, you call the company from whom you rented the pod, they come and load it onto their truck, and then drive it off to where you are moving. You do not need to worry about driving your own truck, or rushing to have everything packed for a moving company. You can move at your own pace, and call the moving company when you are ready for the next leg of your moving adventure.

    pods saved my life on my last move. it is the luxury of moving at your own pace that is a real blessing. i know you can take your time with a truck, too, but pods are far superior to trucks

    and i think that they almost come out to roughly the same price when it comes to renting your own truck and driving the whole way, or getting the pod company to do it for you
