The Benefits of Using Storage Pods over Storage Warehouses

Published on Tuesday, 29 May 2012

The Benefits of Using Storage Pods over Storage Warehouses At one point or another, you are bound to move from one address to a new one. It could be for the reasons of having a growing family, it could be job-related, or it could be that all your kids are grown up and you want to live in a smaller house as an elderly couple. There are also office-related moves which require everything to be transported from one place to another.
Typically, the option that homeowners and office managers use when moving commercial or residential spaces is to hire the services of a removals company. They can offer either the main moving services or all-in services including packing and unpacking. Your second option is to do the packing yourself, and rent a moving truck. There are pros and cons to both of these options, which is something that you need to study when deciding between the two. However, do not discount the possibility of renting a storage pod or a storage warehouse if you are about to move.
As the name implies, these are mobile or fixed storage units which allow you to store your possessions for a certain period of time. Whether you are simply de-cluttering your home or if you are in the actual process of moving, you will find such services to be utterly useful.
Storage Pods versus Storage Warehouses
A storage pod is a mobile storage unit which can be brought to your house while a storage warehouse is somewhere that you need to drive to in order to store your possessions. Generally, using storage pods is better than hiring a space in storage houses due to the following reasons:
·       When using mobile storage pods, there's no need for you to drive from your house to the location.
Mobile storage pods are just that - storage units which can be brought from point A to point B. When you rent a mobile storage pod, you can simply have it delivered to your home and take all the time you need to pack in there all the things that need to be moved. With storage warehouses, you will be given access to a space in the warehouse but the problem is hauling all your boxes in there. With a mobile storage pod, the process of storing boxes is a lot easier.
·       There is no need for you to rent a truck to get your boxes of stuff to and from the warehouse.
As mentioned earlier, mobile storage pods can be delivered straight to your doorstep so you would not have to rent a truck or moving van anymore.
·       You get what you pay for.
The beauty of renting a storage pod while moving is that you can take all the time that you need in filling up the storage unit, and unpacking it later on. Unlike in hiring removals services where you are pressed for time, renting storage pods gives you the best value for your money.
As such, if you would like your move to be as organized as possible, it is better to rent storage pods than take the traditional route of moving boxes yourself, or paying a removals company to do it for you.
