Kicking off the New Year with a move from Brisbane to Melbourne

 In Moving

Tony’s son, Andrew, landed himself a new job in Melbourne, just in time to kick off the 2017 New Year.

Problem 1 – Andrew lives in Brisbane – 1648 km away!
Problem 2 – How to get Andrew and his stuff down to Melbourne – in a hurry?

For Andrew the solution was easy – let Dad organise everything.
For Tony (aka Dad) – he found PODS and couldn’t be happier with how easy the move went. We couldn’t move Andrew, but we could move all of Andrew’s belongings.

Here’s what Tony had to say about his experience with PODS…

“My son Andrew was to begin work at a new job in Melbourne, the problem was he lived in Brisbane, and I found myself a new job organising his move. After looking at all Andrew’s options we decided on PODS, for a host of different reasons. And couldn’t be happier.

“The PODS interstate team (especially Elaine) were very accommodating and easy to work with. They understood our need for a quick move, and we wanted to sort and pack Andrew’s worldly possessions ourselves without worrying about lost items in transport changeovers along the way.

“With the busyness of Christmas, the excitement of a new job and stress of a move so far away, we were all challenged by Andrew’s plans. Every time we called PODS, they were friendly, reassuring and helpful.

“We had the container delivered to Andrew’s new place of work, Generator Rentals Australia, in Altona North (Melbourne). This was easy for him to manage access to his stuff. At one point we desperately needed to get something from the container as soon as it arrived to the Melbourne storage centre before its delivery to Altona North. All we had to was give PODS a call, and within 24 hours, Andrew had what he needed.  

“The whole experience, from the initial calls asking for pricing, to booking and final delivery, was refreshingly easy! It was comforting knowing Andrew’s worldly possessions were in good hands. I know I will certainly be referring my friends and family to PODS for any moving and storage requirements.”

Andrew, CONGRATULATIONS on your new job!
Tony, thank you for choosing PODS to help with your interstate move.
