Pod Problems: How Long Can You Rent a Pod?
January 05, 2021
Nobody enjoys moving. It's hard, stressful, and tight deadlines keep you packing and loading all day.
Most moving companies are extremely expensive. Those moving to a new house would rather save money on the moving process so they can spend that money on their new home.
But is there an easier way to move? Can moving be done on your schedule, rather than on your mover's schedule? And is there a more affordable way?
Absolutely. When you rent a pod, you can move out of your house at your own pace. It's far less stressful and far more affordable than other moving options.
If you are here to learn about pods, how long you can rent one, how much it is to rent a pod, and how they make your life easier, you're in the right place. Keep reading for everything you need to know before your upcoming move.
What Are Pods?
Pods, or mobile storage boxes, are the better way to move your stuff or store it temporarily. Pods are large, mobile storage boxes delivered directly to you.
Once a pod is dropped off at your home or business, you can fill it up at your own pace. Whenever you are ready for us to move the loaded pod to your next house or business address, give us a call.
We'll pick it up and drop it off for you. Then, simply unload at your own pace. Once empty, let us know and we will come to pick up the empty pod. No stress, no deadlines.
Pods are the safest way to store your stuff. They are lockable, weatherproof, and insulated. Keep unwanted people, weather, and critters out of your stuff while stored in your driveway, yard, or at our secure facility.
Who Uses Pods?
Those who are moving find the most benefit from pods. They can have a pod dropped off in as little as 2-4 days. You can choose to load all of your stuff in one day or take your time. Whether you are moving across town or moving across the country, storage boxes make it more enjoyable.
But those who are moving are not the only people who save time and money with pods. Nearly 10% of all households rent self-storage units. Those who need self-storage find it much more convenient to use a pod rather than a storage unit.
With pods, you only need to load and unload once. When using a storage unit, you have to pack your car or truck and unload it in the storage unit. When you are done storing your stuff, you'll have to pack it up again and unpack it once more.
You can keep the pod at your home or business, or we can store it at our protected facility. This is great for those remodeling their home or downsizing.
When hired for large or ongoing jobs, many construction companies also rent a pod for their job site to make work much more efficient. Keep your equipment, tools, and building supplies stored on-site and safe.

The best part about renting a pod is that it revolves around you. You can use it as long as you need it. Not sure how long you are going to need it? A simple daily rate makes it's easy to keep your stuff stored until you are ready to unpack.
