Renovation Storage fit for the White House

 In Business, PODS, Storage

Are you wanting to renovate you home (or office) to give it a new lease on life? Do you need to make repairs to ageing services within the home (or office)? Do you need temporary a renovation storage solution? You’re not alone. Even the USA’s most famous home-office, the White House, needs renovating attention.

While Trump is on a 17-day excursion to the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, the West Wing is undergoing extensive renovation. This includes the Navy Mess kitchen and a lower lobby, along with installation of new air conditioning and IT systems. New carpets and freshly painted walls will finish off the refreshed look. Even the Oval Office is getting some renovating attention.

With no air conditioning in the Washington DC August summer, aides are working from temporary offices until work is complete.

So, while renovation and repairs are underway, what does the White House do with personal effects, office items, furnishings, valuables and delicate artwork?

There is no doubt that valuable and security sensitive items will be stored in appropriate facilities; but storing furniture and boxes of a less-sensitive nature are perfectly suited for PODS containers. And that is exactly what they did.

The Daily Mail shared photos and an update about the current renovations. You can read the full article here.

And don’t you think the PODS storage containers blend in well with the facade of the building?
