Consumer Benefits of Using Portable Storage Containers

Consumer Benefits of Using Portable Storage Containers



Whether you're moving across the country or just need a little extra space to store your belongings for a while, storage pods are excellent options. Because they're delivered right to your location, they couldn't be more convenient. You'll also enjoy a lot of flexibility by using storage containers instead of standard storage units or moving trucks. Pods have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years as more and more people become aware of the benefits that go along with using them. Moving to a new place and storing your belongings doesn't have to be difficult, and pods are proof of that.

You're in the Driver's Seat


If you hire a moving company, you pay to have your belongings packed and placed onto the truck by movers. With pod storage, you still enjoy the use of a huge storage container, but you don't have to pay extra money to have others pack your items for you. The container will be dropped off at your location, and you will be able to pack it at your leisure. You won't be under any time constraints, so you can spread out the work over a few days if you'd like. Of course, you can still pay to have your items placed in the container as well. It's entirely up to you.

Have a Container Delivered Right to You

Few things are as stressful as having a very limited window of time in which to load a moving truck. Even if you rent your own truck, you are paying for a specific period of time, so you tend to feel stressed and overwhelmed. You also have to go get the truck and bring it back when you're done, and those extra steps make the experience all the more challenging. With pod storage, the container is delivered to you, and you then have all the time you need to pack it up and get it ready. When you are ready, it's picked up and taken wherever you need it to go.

Send it Wherever You Need it to Go

If you just need extra space to temporarily store a few things, you can keep your storage container right at your location for as long as you'd like or at one of many local PODS storage facilities. If you're moving, you can have it picked up and shipped wherever you need it to go within most of North America including parts of Canada and even the UK. That's true whether you're moving across town, across the state or across the country.

Breathe Easy with Secure Storage Containers
PODS Storage containers are exceptionally secure, and you'll be given the only key that unlocks yours. Like many people, you'll probably keep it at your location for at least a few days. You'll breathe easy knowing that you don't have to worry about anyone else gaining entry to your pod. You can safely leave it locked up on your driveway, out on the street or wherever else you need to keep it. You essentially enjoy the benefits of a first-rate storage locker without having to drive to it.

Get the Size You Need
Pod storage couldn't be more flexible or convenient. You can take your pick from several sizes, so you don't have to pay for space you don't need. The storage container company can help you determine the appropriate size. Most people are able to pack everything they need into one container, so this option is extremely affordable too.

Store it at a Local PODS Storage Center
What if you aren't going to need your stuff for a while or just want to store it indefinitely? If keeping it at your location isn't an option for some reason, don't worry. You can have it picked up and delivered to the nearest PODS Storage Center. When you're ready to retrieve your stuff, you can either go to the storage center or have the pod delivered back to you. When it comes to flexible storage and moving, you can't do better.

Get Your Container Quickly
Storage Pods are ready to go, so you can usually order one and have it delivered the very next day. This is convenient for times when you unexpectedly need to store a bunch of stuff or have to move a large number of things at the last minute. There's no need to wait around, and you don't have to make your plans well in advance.

With all of these benefits in mind, it's easy to see why storage containers have become so popular. The next time you move or need to store things, be sure to give pod storage a try instead of conventional movers or mini-storage. You'll quickly agree that it's the easiest, most flexible and most convenient way to go.
