5 Reasons Why You Should Consider PODS for Your Next Move
Moving house is a stressful experience. But with the right moving company on your side, it becomes a lot smoother and easier to handle. Whether you’re moving nearby or to another state, PODS can provide the perfect solution for you.
Read on for the top five reasons why you should choose PODS for your move.
1. It’s a practical solution
With traditional packing and moving methods, you’ll have boxes lying around your home for weeks and will then have to load them up in a rush on the day of your move. PODS provide a more practical solution. We can deliver your PODS container weeks before your move! This allows you to pack and load your container at your own pace. Those items you won’t need until after the move can be loaded up early so they’re not taking up space in your home.
We pick up your containers on moving day and drive them to your new address for you, whether that’s down the road or interstate. So, you don’t have to worry about hiring a moving van, driving it yourself, and returning it afterwards. We pick up, drop off, and then pick your container up again from your new home once you’re done unpacking.
Plus, containers are delivered to ground level so that you don’t have to worry about ramps or lifts when loading them up. If you do need extra help with packing and loading up your container, we also offer professional packing services at competitive rates.
2. Your belongings are safe
Don’t worry about your belongings stored in our PODS containers; they are completely safe and secure. Our steel-frame containers are secured by durable roller doors that you can lock, preventing break-ins. You’ll have the key to your storage container, so only you will have access to your belongings. They are also weather-resistant storage containers, so your belongings won’t be affected by a sudden downpour or storm. At the same time, the containers are ventilated to prevent issues like mildew from forming. We also provide contents protection cover in case anything does go wrong.
3. Customise your packing
One of the best things about moving home with PODS is that you can customise everything to suit your needs. Our storage containers come in three different sizes, and you can mix and match them if you need a larger amount of storage space. If your moving day changes or you want to change your pick up day after the move, no problem! Just let us know and we’ll change your date at no extra cost. And if you decide you need to store your belongings with us for longer, then our flexible storage solutions have you covered.
4. Flexible and cost-effective pricing
Moving your belongings across the country doesn’t have to be expensive. Our storage solutions are extremely cost-effective, making sure you don’t have to pay for anything you don’t need. We are cheaper than using a conventional moving company, and you don’t have to pay anything until the day before we deliver your container.
At PODS, we don’t lock you into a contract. So, if your circumstances change and you no longer need our services, you won’t be charged a cancellation fee. You can get a personalised quote to find out how much you could save with PODS.
5. Our staff are friendly and helpful
If you have any questions about the moving process or any of our services, then our staff and customer service team are happy to help. Our team is very responsive and available until 8pm, so you can call us with your questions or concerns. We can even help you before you book with a free, no obligation visit to your home. This is useful in assessing how much storage space you’ll need and what size containers will suit you best. You can also go online and use our storage space calculator to help you out. During this visit, they can also assess the best place for the container to go when it is delivered.
When it comes to your delivery day and moving day, your driver will keep in touch to make sure you know what’s going on. They’ll call you the day before the delivery to give you a 3-hour window in which they will arrive. They’ll then call again on the day, half an hour before they’re due for the delivery.
What more could you ask for? With PODS, you’ve got an all-in-one solution to help you move house without the hassle. You can contact us to find out more about this service or to book a consultation with a member of our team. It’s a quick and easy process, and you can arrange everything with just one call.
