Is It Better To Use Shipping Containers Or Pods?

 In Storage

If you need to move or are simply looking for some extra storage options, there are a few viable choices that come in a variety of sizes and shapes.

When looking at both PODS or shipping containers for storage, think about the length of time that you will be needing the storage for and weigh up the advantages and disadvantages of both, together with your budget, in order to help you make a decision.

PODS containers are often looked at as great storage solutions for shorter periods of time. These are units that you can have delivered to your location and are easily accessible through roll-up doors.

Due to the cost difference, shipping containers are often looked at for residential storage that is more of a long-term basis.

Overall, both units are going to give you a decent amount of security, however it’s always good to be aware of the safety measures you should take with self-storage.

All in all, it may actually come down to personal preference when you are picking between PODS or a shipping container to help you take care of your residential or even your commercial storage needs. If you decide PODS is the right solution for you, the PODS container will be delivered right to your door. If you decide a shipping container is the preferable choice, you might want to look at your options in terms of companies in your local area to help you have your container delivered, so that you can start storing your items immediately.

In the end, you will have a safe, dry and roomy space to keep all of your household goods or other items that you need to store for a designated period of time.

    Hi. Are these containers or pods waterproof. We want something for storing items at our house whilst we are renovating internally. 4 to 8 weeks

      Good morning Kevin,
      Yes, they are water proof, the walls are aluminium exterior, roller door at one end with a latch for a lock, and a polyurethane roof (the same stuff water tanks are made out of, they keep water in and we keep water out). Our team are back on deck this morning if you would like to give them a call, and we can discuss all your options with you.
